RESULTS OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING                                               
Shareholders are hereby advised that at the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") of

resolutions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 were passed by shareholders on a show of hands.    
Following a poll, requested by the Chairman, resolution 5, an ordinary          
resolution failed to be passed by the shareholders as the requisite percentage  
of votes required was not obtained.                                             
At the AGM the following resolutions were put to the meeting as ordinary        
1. To receive and consider the Company`s annual accounts for the financial      
year ended 31 December 2011, together with the directors` and auditors`         
reports on the annual accounts.                                                 
2. To re-appoint KPMG LLP as auditors to the Company to hold office from the    
conclusion of the meeting, until the conclusion of the next meeting at which    
accounts are laid before the Company, and to authorise the directors to fix     
their remuneration.                                                             
3. To re-elect Miklos Salamon as a director of the Company, who retires by      
rotation in accordance with Article 16.6 of the Articles and being eligible to  
do so, offers himself for re-election.                                          
4. To re-elect Patrick Malaza as a director of the Company, who retires by      
rotation in accordance with Article 16.6 of the Articles and being eligible to  
do so, offers himself for re-election.                                          
5. To approve the Director`s remuneration report for the financial year ended   
31 December 2011.                                                               
The following resolution was put to the meeting as an extraordinary             
6. That the directors be and are hereby empowered to allot equity securities    
wholly for cash, pursuant to the authority conferred by Article 4.1 and         
Article 10.6 of the Articles as if Article 10.1 of the Articles did not apply   
to any such allotment, provided that this power shall be limited to the         
allotment of equity securities:                                                 
    (a)  in connection with an offer of such securities by way of rights to     
         holders of shares in proportion (as nearly as may be practicable) to   
their respective holdings of such shares, but subject to such          
         exclusions or other arrangements as the directors may deem necessary   
         or expedient in relation to fractional entitlements, or any legal or   
         practical problems under the laws of any territory, or the             
requirements of any regulatory body or stock exchange or otherwise;    
    (b)  otherwise than and in addition to sub-paragraph (a) of this            
         resolution, up to a maximum aggregate nominal amount equal to          
GBP799,841 (being approximately 5 per cent of the issued share         
         capital of the Company as at 23 March 2012);                           
and provided that this authority shall expire on the 15 month anniversary of    
the date of this resolution or on the conclusion of the Company`s next general  
meeting, if earlier, save that the Company may, before such expiry make an      
offer or agreement which would or might require equity securities to be         
allotted after such expiry and the directors may allot equity securities in     
pursuance of any such offer or agreement, notwithstanding that the power        
conferred hereby has expired and in this resolution the expression ``equity     
securities`` and references to the "allotment of equity securities" shall bear  
the same respective meanings as in Article 1.1 of the Articles.                 
The proxy votes cast before the meeting in respect of the individual            
resolutions were as follows:
