A notice was issued by Bank of New York Mellon (the Company’s Listing Agent) via Business Wire (a financial information provider) and posted on the London Stock Exchange website on 2 December 2009 which purported to give details of cancellation of the Notes by the Company. This notice was issued without the authority of the Company and the figures contained in such notice reflected the position under only the XS ISINs and not the global position and as such were potentially misleading. As a result such notice should be disregarded and this notice is being issued to correct and clarify such notice and the information contained therein.
