Further to the announcement made by the Company on 11 November 2011 in which

The Circular sets out the Company's intention to call a General Meeting of

and a special resolution to disapply pre-emption rights in respect of any such
issuance. Any authority granted to the Directors will expire at the conclusion
of the next Annual General Meeting of the Company.

The Company expects to publish a prospectus shortly after the General Meeting
in order to obtain Admission to the Official List of any Shares issued pursuant
to the authority conferred by the Resolutions.
