Transactions in a Close Period - Listing Rule 15.5.1(4)

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 15.5.1(4), the Company confirms that it is satisfied that all inside information which the Directors and the Company may have in the period leading up to the announcement of its annual results has previously been and will continue to be notified via a RIS and, therefore, the dealings referred to in Listing Rule 15.5.1(3) are permitted.

 

The Company and persons discharging managerial responsibilities for the Company are therefore exempt during the close period from the provisions of the Model Code in respect of dealings in the Company's own securities. If, in the period leading up to the announcement of the annual results, the Directors, the Company or any person discharging managerial responsibilities come into possession of any inside information, this will be notified via a RIS before any such transactions are undertaken.

 

The close period to which this notification relates is in respect of the year ended 31 March 2014.

 

 

Capitalised terms used in this announcement and not otherwise defined shall have the meaning given to them in the Prospectus.
