Such shareholders may, however, elect to be paid their dividends in US dollars provided the UK Registrars receive such election by Friday 16 March 2007. Shareholders with an address elsewhere will be paid in US dollars except those registered on the South African branch register who will be paid in South African rand. The currency conversion rates and the amounts per share in pounds sterling/euros will be announced on Tuesday 20 March 2007.

  3. Those shareholders who already participate in the DRIP need not complete a DRIP mandate form for each dividend as such forms provide an on-going authority to participate in the DRIP until cancelled in writing. Shareholders who wish to participate in the DRIP should obtain a mandate form from the UK Registrars, the South African Transfer Secretaries or, in the case of those who hold their shares through the STRATE system, their CSDP.
  4. In terms of the DRIP, and subject to the purchase of shares in the open market, share certificates/Crest notifications are expected to be mailed and CSDP investor accounts credited/updated on Wednesday 23 May 2007.
