                                   ("Maiden")



Following the announcement on 29 March, subscribers have been procured for the
remaining 639,038 New Ordinary Shares, for which valid acceptances were not
received, at a price of 230 pence per share.  The net proceeds from the sale of
these shares, after the deduction of the Rights Issue price of 210 pence per New
Ordinary Share and relevant costs, will be paid to shareholders who have not
taken up their entitlements, pro rata to their lapsed provisional allotments,
save that amounts of less than £3 per holding will be retained for the benefit
of Maiden.  As a result of the procurement of subscribers, neither the
underwriters nor the sub-underwriters will be required to subscribe for any New
Ordinary Shares.



The Rights Issue was fully underwritten by Numis Securities Limited
