Shareholders may elect to receive the dividend in UK pounds sterling if they
wish. The Board has determined that the exchange rate to be applied to convert
the dividend into UK pounds will be £0.5747 to the US dollar, equating to 3.2761

Shareholders wishing to receive their dividends in UK pounds sterling should
notify the Company's Registrars by 30 December 2005. The Company's Registrars
can also arrange for dividends to be paid direct into shareholders' UK bank
accounts. This arrangement will only be available in respect of dividends paid
in UK pounds sterling.
