Regulations 6 and 7 of Table A shall not apply to the Company.

The Company may by special resolution:-

 

(a)

increase its share capital by creating new Shares of such amount as the resolution prescribes;

 

(b)

consolidate and divide all or any of its share capital into Shares of larger amount than its existing Shares but so that any such consolidation and/or division shall not result in any member becoming entitled to fractions of a Share;

 

(c)

designate or redesignate any Shares;

 

(d)

subject to the provisions of the Act, sub-divide its Shares, or any of them into Shares of smaller amount and the resolution may determine that, as between the Shares resulting from the sub-division, any of them may have any preference or advantage as compared with the others; and

 

(e)

cancel Shares which, at the date of the passing of the resolution, have not been taken or agreed to be taken by any person and diminish the amount of its share capital by the amount of the shares so cancelled. Regulation 32 of Table A shall not apply to the Company.

 

11

Save as may be provided by Regulation 110 of Table A as amended by these Articles, the directors are authorised to allot Relevant Securities on such terms and at such time or times as they may in their discretion think fit; provided that:

 

(a)

they obtain prior sanction of the Company by special resolution;

 

(b)

the maximum nominal amount of Relevant Securities to be allotted in pursuance of such authority shall be the aggregate nominal amount of the authorised and unissued share capital of the Company from time to time; and

this authority shall expire, unless sooner revoked or altered by the Company in general meeting, on the expiry of the period of five years from the date of the adoption of these Articles provided that the Company may before such expiry make one or more offers or agreements which would or might require Relevant Securities to be allotted after such expiry and the directors may allot Relevant Securities after such authority has expired in pursuance of every such offer or agreement as if the power conferred hereby had not expired.

VARIATION OF CLASS RIGHTS

17

If at any time the share capital of the Company is divided into different classes of Shares, the rights attached to any class (unless otherwise provided by the terms of the issue of the Shares for that class) may not, whether or not the Company is being wound up, be varied without (i) the consent in writing of the holders of three-fourths in number of the issued Shares of that class, or with the sanction of an extraordinary resolution passed at a separate general meeting of the holders of the Shares of that class and (ii) the sanction of the Company by special resolution. To every such separate general meeting of a class of Shareholders the provisions of the regulations of the Company relating to general meetings shall apply, but so that the necessary quorum shall be one persons at least holding Shares of the class and that any holder of Shares of the class present in person or by proxy may demand a poll. If any such separate general meeting shall be adjourned owing to the absence of a quorum and if at the adjourned meeting a quorum shall not be present within half an hour from the time appointed for such adjourned meeting the holder or holders of Shares of the class concerned who are present shall constitute a quorum and shall have power to decide upon all matters which could properly have been disposed of at the meeting from which the adjournment took place.

TRANSFER OF SHARES

18

An instrument of transfer of fully paid shares need not be signed by or on behalf of the transferee but shall be executed by or on behalf of the transferor who shall be deemed to remain a holder of the share until the name of the transferee is entered in the register of members in respect thereof. Regulation 23 of Table A shall be modified accordingly. Regulation 24 of Table A is hereby excluded.

any sale or other disposition of any legal or beneficial interest in a Share, whether or not for consideration and whether or not effected by an instrument in writing.

(a)

the transferee shall forthwith transfer back to the transferor the Shares registered in its name and which were so transferred to it; and

 

(b)

if the transferee has not so transferred those Shares within a period of 14 days after being required to do so by notice in writing given to it by the transferor, Article 22 shall apply.

 

22

If the transferee under Article 21 defaults in such obligation as referred to in that Article:

 

(a)

the Company may receive the purchase money (if any) or other consideration due to the transferee and shall initially hold that purchase money or other consideration in trust for the purchaser;

 

(b)

the transferee shall be deemed to have appointed any one Director or the Secretary of the Company as its duly appointed agent with full power to complete, sign and deliver on its behalf any stock transfer form and/or other document which needs to be completed and signed in order to vest in the transferor legal title to the Shares which the transferee is required to transfer pursuant to these Articles;

 

(c)

the transferee shall forthwith pay to the Company such amount as may be required to enable the Company to pay all stamp duties payable on such stock transfer form;

(e)

the receipt by the Company (or such person who the Directors may authorise) of the purchase money or other consideration due to the transferee shall be a good discharge to the transferor from the transferee and, after the transferor has been entered in the Register of Members of the Company, the validity of the transfer shall not be questioned by any person; and

 

(f)

the purchase money shall be paid to the transferee upon delivery to the Company of its certificate or certificates in respect of the Shares transferred.

PURCHASE OF OWN SHARES
