To the holders of ordinary shares in Moneysupermarket.com Group PLC ('Company') Notice of Annual General Meeting 

Dear Shareholder, 


I am pleased to be writing to you with the details of the second Annual General Meeting ('AGM') of the Company which will be held at 11.00am on Thursday 16 April 2009 at De Vere Carden Park Hotel, near ChesterCheshireCH3 9DQ. The Notice of AGM is set out on pages 5 to 9 of this document. 


The purpose of this letter is to explain certain elements of the business to be considered at the AGM. 


Resolutions 1 to 9 inclusive and 12 will be proposed as ordinary resolutions. Resolutions 10, 11 and 13 will be proposed as special resolutions. The proposed ordinary resolutions will be passed if more than 50% of the votes cast are in favour and the proposed special resolutions will be passed if at least 75% of the votes cast are in favour. 


To receive the Annual Report and Accounts (Resolution 1) 

The Chairman will present the accounts and the reports of the Directors and auditors for the year ended 31 December 2008 to the AGM. 


Directors' Remuneration Report (Resolution 2) 

It is mandatory for all listed companies to put the Directors' Remuneration Report to an advisory shareholder vote. The Directors' Remuneration Report is set out on pages 48 to 52 of the Company's Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2008. As the vote to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report is advisory it does not affect the actual remuneration paid to any individual Director. 


Final dividend (Resolution 3) 

A final dividend of 2.2 pence per ordinary share for the year ended 31 December 2008 is recommended for payment by the Directors. 

If shareholders approve the recommended final dividend, it will be paid on 1 May 2009 to all ordinary shareholders who are on the register of members at 6.00pm on 27 March 2009. 


Re-election of Directors (Resolutions 4, 5 and 6) 

Resolutions 4, 5 and 6 deal with the re-election of Peter Plumb, Graham Donoghue and David Osborne as Directors. The Articles of Association of the Company require that all Directors appointed by the Board shall retire at the next Annual General Meeting of the Company following their appointment and shall then be eligible for re-election. 

Peter Plumb was appointed a Director by the Board on 1 January 2009. Each of Graham Donoghue and David Osborne was appointed a Director by the Board on 23 February 2009. Each of the Directors offers himself for re-election. 


Biographies of each of the Directors seeking re-election are included in the Appendix to this document. 


The Board is satisfied that the Directors standing for re-election are qualified for re-election by virtue of their skills, experience and contribution to the Board. 

Re-appointment of auditors and auditors' remuneration (Resolutions 7 and 8) 

Resolution 7 proposes the re-appointment of KPMG Audit Plc as the Company's auditors to hold office until the end of the next Annual General Meeting of the Company and Resolution 8 authorises the Directors to determine their remuneration. 


            Directors' authority to allot shares (Resolution 9) 

            Resolution 9 deals with the Directors' authority to allot shares. In December 2008, the Association of British Insurers ('ABI') revised its guidelines           

            on directors' authority to allot shares (in line with the recommendations of the report issued in November 2008 by the Rights Issue Review Group). The ABI's

            guidelines previously stated that the Directors' general authority to allot shares should be limited to an amount equal to 33.3% of the issued share capital of the

            Company. The new guidelines state that ABI members will permit, and treat as routine, resolutions seeking authority to allot shares representing up to 66.6% of the

            issued share capital of the Company. The guidelines provide that the extra routine authority (that is the authority to allot shares representing the additional 33.3% of

            the  issued share capital of the Company) can only be used to allot shares pursuant to a fully pre-emptive rights issue. 


            In light of these revised guidelines, the Board considers it appropriate that Directors be granted authority to allot shares in the capital of the Company up to a maximum

            nominal amount of £67,246 representing the new guideline limit of 66.6% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company as at 25 February 2009 (being the latest 

            practicable date prior to the publication of this document). Of this amount, shares up to a maximum nominal amount of £33,623 (representing 33.3% of the issued

            ordinary share capital of the Company) can only be allotted pursuant to a rights issue. This authority will expire at the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting 

            of  the Company. This authority is in substitution for all existing authorities, to the extent unused. The Directors have no present intention of exercising this authoriy.

 

             As at 25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this document), the Company had 504,856,062 ordinary shares of 0.02p each in 

             issue and the Company's authorised ordinary share capital was 1,154,705,882 ordinary shares of 0.02p each. As at 25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable

             date prior to the publication of this document), the Company does not hold any ordinary shares in the capital of the Company in treasury. 


             Disapplication of statutory pre-emption rights (Resolution 10) 

Resolution 10 gives the Directors authority to allot shares in the capital of the Company pursuant to the authority granted under Resolution 9 above for cash without complying with the pre-emption rights in the Companies Act 1985 in certain circumstances. In the light of the new ABI guidelines described in relation to Resolution 9 above, this authority will permit the Directors to allot: 

(i) shares up to a maximum nominal amount of £67,246 (representing 66.6% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company) on an offer to existing shareholders on a pre-emptive basis. However unless the shares are allotted pursuant to a rights issue (rather than an open offer), the Directors may only allot shares up to a nominal amount of £33,623 (representing 33.3% of the issued ordinary share 
capital of the Company) (in each case subject to adjustments for fractional entitlements, overseas shareholders and certain other matters stated in the Resolution); and 


             (ii) shares up to a maximum nominal amount of £5,048, representing 5% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company as at 

25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this document) otherwise than in connection with an offer to existing shareholders. 


This authority is in substitution for all existing authorities, to the extent unused. The Directors have no present intention of exercising this authority. 

            Authority to purchase own ordinary shares (Resolution 11) 

Resolution 11 gives the Company authority to purchase its own ordinary shares in the market. The authority limits the number of ordinary shares that could be purchased to a maximum of 50,485,606 ordinary shares in the capital of the Company, representing 10% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company as at 25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this document). The maximum and minimum prices for purchase of the Company's issued ordinary share capital are stated in the Resolution. This authority will expire at the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting of the Company. This authority is in substitution for all existing authorities, to the extent unused. 

The Directors have no present intention of exercising the authority to purchase the Company's ordinary shares but will keep the matter under review, taking into account the financial resources of the Company, the Company's share price and future funding opportunities. 

The Directors believe that it is advantageous for the Company to have this flexibility to make market purchases of its ordinary shares. 
The authority will be exercised only if the Directors believe that to do so would result in an increase in earnings per share and would be in the interests of shareholders generally. Any purchases of ordinary shares would be by means of market purchases through the London Stock Exchange. 

In the event that ordinary shares are purchased, they will either be cancelled (and the number of shares in issue would be reduced 

 accordingly) or retained as treasury shares. No dividends would be paid on ordinary shares whilst held in treasury and no voting rights 

would attach to treasury shares. Treasury shares may subsequently be cancelled or sold for cash. It is the Company's current intention to hold any ordinary shares purchased pursuant to the authority granted in this Resolution as treasury shares. This would give the Company the ability to re-issue ordinary shares quickly and cost effectively from treasury and would provide the Company with additional flexibility in the management of its share capital. However, in order to respond properly to the Company's capital requirements and prevailing market conditions, the Directors will need to reassess at the time of any and each actual purchase whether to hold the shares in treasury or 
cancel them, provided it is permitted to do so. 


  As at 25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this document), there were warrants and options over 4,531,964 ordinary shares

  in the capital of the Company representing 0.90% of the Company's issued ordinary share capital. If the   authority to purchase the Company's ordinary shares was

  exercised in full at that date and the shares so purchased had been cancelled,    these warrants and options would represent 1.00% of the Company's issued 

  ordinary share capital. 


  Political donations (Resolution 12) 

 Resolution 12 deals with political donations. Under the Companies Act 2006 ('2006 Act'), political donations to any political parties, 

  independent election candidates or political organisations or the incurring of political expenditure are prohibited unless authorised by 

  shareholders in advance. What constitutes a political donation, a political party, a political organisation, or political expenditure is not easy 
  to decide, as the legislation is capable of wide interpretation. Sponsorship, subscriptions, payment of expenses, paid leave for employees 
  fulfilling public duties, and support for bodies representing the business community in policy review or reform, may fall within these terms. 


  Therefore, notwithstanding that it is the policy of the Company not to make political donations or incur political expenditure and the 

  Company has no present intention of making any political donation or incurring any political expenditure in respect of any political party, 
  political organisation or independent election candidate, the authority granted by this Resolution 12 will allow the Company to continue to 
  support the community and put forward its views to wider business and Government interests without running the risk of being in breach 
  of the law. As permitted under the 2006 Act, Resolution 12 covers any political donations made, or political expenditure incurred, by any 
  subsidiaries of the Company. 


  Length of notice of meeting (Resolution 13) 

  Resolution 13 is a resolution to allow the Company to hold general meetings (other than annual general meetings) on 14 days' notice. 


  At last year's Annual General Meeting, new Articles of Association were adopted which included a provision allowing general meetings 
  of the Company to be called on the minimum notice period provided for in the 2006 Act. For general meetings other than annual general 
  meetings the minimum notice period permitted by the 2006 Act is currently 14 days. The 2006 Act provisions relating to meetings are due 
  to be amended with effect from August 2009, as a result of the UK implementation of the EU Shareholder Rights Directive ('Directive'). 
  One of the amendments to be made will, in accordance with the Directive, increase the minimum notice period for listed company general 
  meetings to 21 days, but with an ability for companies to reduce this period back to 14 days (other than for annual general meetings) 
  provided that two conditions are met. The first condition is that the Company offers facilities for shareholders to vote by electronic means. 
  It is not yet clear what this will require and the details will be set out in the final regulations when published. The second condition is that 
  there is an annual resolution of shareholders approving the reduction in the minimum notice period from 21 days to 14 days. The Board is 
  therefore proposing Resolution 13 as a special resolution to approve 14 days as the minimum period of notice for all general meetings of 
  the Company other than annual general meetings. The approval will be effective until the next Annual General Meeting of the Company, 
  when it is intended that the approval be renewed. The Company will also need to meet the requirements for electronic voting under the 
  Directive before it can call a general meeting on 14 days' notice. 


  Action to be taken 

  Depending on how you hold your ordinary shares in the Company, you will receive either a Form of Proxy (in the case of ordinary 

  shareholders), a Form of Instruction (in the case of holders of ordinary shares via the Moneysupermarket.com Share Account) or a 

  Proxy Voting Direction Form (in the case of holders of ordinary shares via the Moneysupermarket.com Group PLC Share Incentive Plan) for use in relation to 

  the AGM. 


  Ordinary shareholders on the register of members of the Company 

 If you are an ordinary shareholder on the register of members of the Company, you are requested to complete, sign, date and return the   Form of Proxy in

 the Company's registrar by no later than 11.00am on 14 April 2009. The completion and return of the Form of Proxy will not preclude you from attending,

 speaking and voting in person at the AGM should you decide to do so.

  The completion and return of the Form of Instruction will not preclude you from attending as a guest and speaking in person at the 

  AGM should you decide to do so. If you wish to attend, speak and vote in person at the AGM in respect of the ordinary shares you 

hold via the Moneysupermarket.com Share Account, when completing the Form of Instruction, you should instruct Capita IRG Trustees (Nominees) Limited to appoint you as its proxy in respect of those shares.

             Recommendation 

The Board considers the proposed Resolutions are likely to promote the success of the Company and are in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole. 

The Directors unanimously recommend that you vote in favour of the Resolutions to be proposed at the AGM as they intend to do in respect of their own beneficial holdings. 


            Yours faithfully, 





Gerald Corbett 
Chairman

Notes

1. A shareholder entitled to attend, speak and vote at the meeting may appoint another person(s) (who need not be a shareholder of the Company) to exercise all or any of his rights to attend, speak and vote at the meeting. A shareholder can appoint more than one proxy in relation to the meeting, provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise the rights attaching to   different shares held by that  shareholder. This does not apply to Nominated Persons. 


2. A proxy does not need to be a shareholder of the Company but must attend the meeting to represent you. Your proxy could be the Chairman, another Director of the Company or another person who has agreed to attend to represent you. Your proxy will vote as you instruct and must attend the meeting for your vote to be counted. Details of how to appoint the Chairman or another person as your proxy using the Form of Proxy are set out in the notes to the Form of Proxy. Appointing a proxy does not preclude you from attending, speaking and voting in person at the meeting. If you attend the meeting in person, your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated. 

 

3. If you hold your ordinary shares in the Company via the Moneysupermarket.com Share Account you may attend as a guest and speak in person at the meeting. If you wish to attend, speak and vote in person at the meeting in respect of the ordinary shares you hold via the Moneysupermarket.com Share Account, you should instruct Capita IRG Trustees (Nominees) Limited to appoint you as its proxy in respect of those shares. 

 

4. A copy of this notice has been sent for information only to persons who have been nominated by a shareholder to enjoy information rights under section 146 of the Companies Act 2006 (a 'Nominated Person'). The right to appoint a proxy can not be exercised by a Nominated Person: they can only be exercised by the shareholder. However, a Nominated Person may have a right under an agreement between him and the shareholder by whom he was nominated to be appointed as a proxy for the meeting or to have someone else so appointed. If a Nominated Person does not have such a right or does not wish to exercise it, he may have a right under such an 
agreement to give instructions to the shareholder as to the exercise of voting rights. 

 

If you are such a Nominated Person, it is important to remember that your main contact in terms of your investment remains the registered shareholder or custodian or broker, who administers the investment on your behalf. Therefore, any changes or queries relating to your 
personal details and holding (including any administration thereof) must continue to be directed to your existing contact at your investment manager or custodian. The Company cannot guarantee dealing with matters that are directed to it in error. The only exception to this is where the Company, in exercising one of its powers under the Companies Act 2006, writes to you directly for a response.

Changes to entries on the register after this time shall be disregarded in determining the rights of persons to attend or vote (and the number of votes they may cast) at the meeting or adjourned meeting. 

 12. CREST members who wish to appoint a proxy or proxies by utilising the CREST electronic proxy appointment service may do so 

by utilising the procedures described in the CREST Manual. CREST Personal Members or other CREST sponsored members, and those CREST members who have appointed a voting service provider(s), should refer to their CREST sponsor or voting service provider(s), who will be able to take the appropriate action on their behalf. In order for a proxy appointment made by means of CREST to be valid, the 
appropriate CREST message (a 'CREST Proxy Instruction') must be properly authenticated in accordance with Euroclear UK & Ireland 
Limited's ('EUI') specifications and must contain the information required for such instructions, as described in the CREST Manual. The 
message regardless of whether it constitutes the appointment of a proxy or an amendment to the instruction given to a previously 

appointed proxy must, in order to be valid, be transmitted so as to be received by the issuer's agent (ID number RA10) by the latest time(s) for receipt of proxy appointments specified in the Notice of Meeting. For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as 
determined by the timestamp applied to the message by the CREST Applications Host) from which the issuer's agent is able to retrieve the 
message by enquiry to CREST in the manner prescribed by CREST. The Company may treat as invalid a CREST Proxy Instruction in the circumstances set out in Regulation 35(5)(a) of the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 2001. 


  13. CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers should note that EUI does not make 

available special procedures in CREST for any particular messages. Normal system timings and limitations will therefore apply in relation to the input of CREST Proxy Instructions. It is the responsibility of the CREST member concerned to take (or, if the CREST member is a CREST personal member or sponsored member or has appointed a voting service provider(s), to procure that his CREST sponsor or voting service provider(s) take(s)) such action as shall be necessary to ensure that a message is transmitted by means of the CREST system by any particular time. In this connection, CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers are referred, in particular, to those sections of the CREST Manual concerning practical limitations of the CREST system and timings. 

 14. Please note that the Company takes reasonable precautions to ensure no viruses are present in any electronic communication it 

sends out but the Company cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage arising from the opening or use of any email or attachments from the Company and recommends that shareholders subject all messages to virus checking procedures prior to use. Any electronic 
communication, including the lodgement of an electronic proxy appointment or instruction, found to contain a computer virus will not be accepted. 

15. You may not use any electronic address provided in this document to communicate with the Company for any purposes other than those expressly stated. 

 16. As at 25 February 2009 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this document), the Company's issued share 

capital consists of 504,856,062 ordinary shares of 0.02p each, carrying one vote each. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore the total voting rights in the Company at such date are 504,856,062. 

17. In order to facilitate voting by corporate representatives at the meeting, arrangements will be put in place at the meeting so that 

(i) if a corporate shareholder has appointed the Chairman of the meeting as its corporate representative with instructions to vote on 

a poll in accordance with the directions of all of the other corporate representatives for that shareholder at the meeting, then on a poll 
those corporate representatives will give voting directions to the Chairman and the Chairman will vote (or withhold a vote) as corporate 
representative in accordance with those directions; and (ii) if more than one corporate representative for the same corporate shareholder 
attends the meeting but the corporate shareholder has not appointed the Chairman of the meeting as its corporate representative, 

a designated corporate representative will be nominated, from those corporate representatives who attend, who will vote on a poll and 

the other corporate representatives will give voting directions to that designated corporate representative. Corporate shareholders are 

referred to the guidance issued by the 
Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators on proxies and corporate representatives 
(www.icsa.org.uk) for further details of this procedure. The guidance includes a sample form of representation letter if the Chairman is 

being appointed as described in (i) above. 

18. Copies of the following documents are available for inspection at the registered office of the Company during normal business hours (Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays excepted) and will be available at the place of the meeting from 10.45am on the day of the 
meeting until its conclusion. 


    copies of the Executive Directors' service agreements and the Non-Executive Directors' letters of appointment; and


    biographical details of the Directors being re-elected.

20. Please indicate with an 'X' in the boxes provided on the Form of Proxy, Form of Instruction or Proxy Voting Direction Form how you 
wish your proxy to vote on the Resolutions. The 'Withheld' option on the Form(s) is provided to enable you to abstain on any particular 

Resolution. However a vote 'Withheld' is not a vote in law and will not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes 'For' and 

'Against' a Resolution. 


*Calls cost from 10p per minute plus network extras.
