Taylor Nelson Sofres plc (TNS) has today received a notification from AEGON UK
Group of Companies (AEGON), consisting of AEGON Asset Management UK plc, AEGON
Investment Management UK Ltd and AEGON ICVC, concerning the notifiable interest
in the ordinary share capital of TNS held by AEGON.
The notification states that following a transaction completed on 31 August
2007, AEGON now directly exercises control over the voting rights associated to
12,050,952 shares, constituting 2.88% of the current voting rights of TNS.
AEGON has therefore ceased to have a notifiable interest.
