sections 570 and 573 of the Companies Act 2006 as amended from time to time
prior to the date of the passing of this resolution (`the Act') to allot equity
securities for cash, either pursuant to the authority given by resolution 9 set

provided that this power shall be limited:

(a) to the allotment of equity securities in connection with a rights issue in
favour of all holders of a class of equity securities where the equity
securities attributable respectively to the interests of all holders of
securities of such class are either proportionate (as nearly as may be) to the
respective numbers of relevant equity securities held by them or are otherwise
allotted in accordance with the rights attaching to such equity securities
(subject in either case to such exclusions or other arrangements as the
Directors may deem necessary or expedient in relation to fractional
entitlements or legal or practical problems under the laws of, or the
requirements of, any regulatory body or any stock exchange in any territory or
otherwise); and

securities up to an aggregate nominal amount of £1,463,788.

and this power shall expire at the conclusion of the next AGM of the Company or
the date fifteen months after the passing of this resolution, whichever is the
earlier, but so that this power shall allow the Company to make offers or
agreements before the expiry of this power which would or might require equity
securities to be allotted after such expiry as if the power conferred by this
resolution had not expired; and so that words and expressions defined in or for
the purposes of Part 17 of the Act shall bear the same meanings in this
resolution.

for five business days immediately preceding the day on which the Share is
purchased;

(iv) any purchase of Shares will be made in the market for cash at prices below
the prevailing net asset value per Share (as determined by the Directors);

(v) the authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next
AGM of the Company or, if earlier, on the expiry of 15 months from the passing
of this resolution unless the authority is renewed at any other general meeting
prior to such time; and

(vi) the Company may make a contract to purchase Shares under the authority
hereby conferred prior to the expiry of such authority which will be executed
wholly or partly after the expiration of such authority and may make a purchase
