                          STOCK EXCHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT


REPAYMENT OF FIXED GEARING AND REPLACEMENT WITH A REVOLVING MULTICURRENCY CREDIT
                                    FACILITY


10 February 2003



The Company today announced that it intends to repay the £40 million Floating
Rate Notes due June 2007, on 28 March 2003, the next interest payment date.
After this date no Notes would remain outstanding.


It is intended that the Company will replace this fixed gearing with a three
year revolving multi-currency credit facility for £40m. This decision will
provide the Company with added flexibility in its use of gearing to enhance
future returns for shareholders and, based on initial expected drawings under
the proposed facility, will reduce the effective costs of borrowing by
approximately thirty-nine basis points per annum.


The Notes will be redeemed at their principal amount and no additional costs are
anticipated.
