A DRIP is again being offered to shareholders on the UK share register. It is not being offered to holders of American Depository Shares or to shareholders on the Hong Kong branch register ("Hong Kong Shareholders") and shareholders holding their interests through The Central Depository (Pte) Limited ("CDP Shareholders").

Under the DRIP, shares are purchased in the market using the cash dividends that would otherwise have been paid to shareholders. The purchased shares are then distributed to each electing shareholder in proportion to the amount of their cash dividend receivable. The price paid for the shares will only be known after all the shares have been purchased. The share purchase price is shown on the DRIP - share purchase price page.

For further information please refer to the DRIP circular which may be found on the shareholder forms page.
