next annual general meeting of the company to be held in 2005 or twelve months
from the date of the passing of this resolution, if earlier, save that the
company may before the expiry of this authority make a contract or contracts to
purchase which will or may be executed wholly or partly after such expiry and
may make a purchase of ordinary shares pursuant to any such contract.

vote in respect of his or her own participation) and the prohibition on voting
by interested directors contained in the company's articles of association be
and is hereby relaxed accordingly.


12.      To consider and, if thought fit, to pass the following as an
         ordinary resolution:
