("odd-lot offer").

6. SURRENDER OF EXISTING DOCUMENTS OF TITLE BY ODD-LOT HOLDERS WHO HOLD
CERTIFICATED SHARES
6.1 All odd-lot holders, other than those who elect to retain their odd-lot
holdings, who hold certificated shares and who have not already done so, are

title have been surrendered by the close of business on Wednesday, 17
October 2001, or within five business days after surrender of their
documents of title, whichever is the later.
7. SURRENDER OF EXISTING DOCUMENTS OF TITLE BY ODD-LOT HOLDERS WHO HOLD
DEMATERIALISED SHARES
7.1 Odd-lot holders who have dematerialised their ordinary shares do not

dematerialised their ordinary shares will automatically be recorded in the
relevant odd-lot holder's account with the Central Securities Depository
