Please also note that these figures have been re-stated to reflect the bonus issue in September 1999 of four new shares for every one held – the actual payments in February 1999 and August 1999 were 3.12p and 3.24p respectively.

(2) In February 2012, a special dividend of 4.0p per ordinary share was paid in addition to the interim dividend of 3.05p.  This special dividend was in respect of the Verizon Wireless distribution, as announced by the Company on 29 July 2011.
