These shares have been purchased in terms of the rules of the Long Term         
Incentive Plan. The awards have vested after a three year performance period and
to the extent that the performance conditions have been satisfied. The company  
is obliged to purchase shares to settle the value of the vested portion of the  
awards. While Mr Susman no longer participates in the group's share schemes,    
this entitlement relates to the period of his employment as group chief         
executive officer.
