As permitted by Regulation 41 of the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 2001 and by the Companies (Uncertificated Securities) (Jersey) Order 1999, shareholders must be entered on the Company’s share register at 4 pm on 27 January 2009 in order to be entitled to attend and vote at the EGM. Such shareholders may only cast votes in respect of shares held at such time. Changes to entries on the relevant register after that time shall be disregarded in determining the rights of any person to attend or vote at the meeting.
