(b)          the remuneration of the Liquidators be determined by reference to the time properly applied by them and their staff in attending to matters prior to and during the winding  up  of  the Company and they be and are hereby authorised to draw such remuneration monthly or at such longer intervals as they may determine and to pay any expenses properly incurred by them; and

* Proxy votes granted to the chairman of the meeting at his discretion are counted as votes "for" the resolutions
** Percentages expressed as a proportion of the total votes cast (excluding withheld votes). Number of cards includes proxy cards submitted for poll vote
*** A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the votes cast "for" or "against" a resolution but is included in the Total Votes Cast column


The passing of the above resolution therefore means the Liquidators have been appointed.


The Company announces the resignation of:


Andrew Sykes, Lynn Fordham, Helen Mahy, David Robins and Stephen Duckett as directors of the Company effective today; and the resignation of Stuart Ballard as company secretary of the Company effective today.
