The Company was informed on 9 March 2012 of the following dealings by certain Directors of the Company in ordinary shares of 20p each (Ordinary Shares").
All Executive Directors have purchased shares to ensure maximum participation in the Company's Co-investment Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) in respect of 2012.
As a consequence of the vesting of 2009 LTIPs a number of shares have also been sold only in order to satisfy the resultant tax liability by Mr Walters and Mr Daubeney. Mr Bannatyne has sold a number of shares in order to satisfy tax and other commitments.
There has been an increase in the overall shareholdings of each of the Directors as a result of these dealings and Mr Walters', Mr Daubeney's and Mr Bannatyne's shareholdings before and after the dealings are as follows:
