Holding(s) in Company

Taylor Nelson Sofres PLC
05 October 2005


Taylor Nelson Sofres plc (TNS) received notification from Threadneedle Asset
Management Holdings Limited on 4 October 2005 regarding the notifiable interest
in the ordinary share capital of TNS.

Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP), of which Threadneedle Asset Management
Holdings Limited is one of its group companies, was officially spun off from
American Express Company on Friday, September 30 to become an independent,
public company.

The previous notification was made on 23 June 2005 on behalf of American Express
Company and its group. However, as a result of the aforementioned spin off,
American Express Company and its group have ceased to have a notifiable interest
over shares in TNS. The previous notification, of which the list of registered
holders is listed below, now becomes effective as a notifiable interest made on
behalf of Ameriprise Financial, Inc and its group.

These positions are based as at the time of the previous notification on 23 June
2005.  There has been no change to the percentage holding in the issued share
capital of TNS since that date, which would require formal notification of such
change in interest.
