Holdings(s) in Company

26 November 2008

The Company has today been notified by Nightingale Equities Inc ("Nightingale") that following Nightingale's purchase of 545,455 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") on 21 November 2008, Nightingale now holds 2,887,477 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 6.77 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.

The 545,455 Ordinary Shares formed part of a larger purchase on 21 November 2008 of 2,668,847 existing Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 6.25 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital, which had been offered for sale following the collapse of the Icelandic banks in early October 2008 and which, the directors believe, had been acting as an overhang of Ordinary Shares in the market since that date.
