Notes:

1.     Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have
been included in the "against" total.

2.     The Company's issued share capital (excluding treasury shares) at
the date of the meeting was 26,315,319 ordinary shares of 0.2p each. Each
ordinary share carries the right to one vote and, therefore, at the date of
the meeting there were 26,315,319 voting rights in the Company.

3.     A vote "withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the
calculation of the proportion of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

4.     All percentages are shown to two decimal places.

 

Anthony Wollenberg, Amit Tauman and Lord David Gold have therefore been
appointed as directors of the Company with immediate effect and the

the AIM Rules for Companies is set out in the Appendix to this announcement.
