Acknowledgement of letter from Laxey

We note the letter from Laxey Partners. The Board will give it proper consideration and will continue its practice of engaging with our shareholders.

As stated in our Pre-close statement yesterday:

"In January we stated that the operating environment was challenging. Since then market sentiment has improved. We expect a more positive economic outlook to result in a stronger overall performance from our private equity portfolio, although the effect of this is unlikely to have an impact upon our results for the financial year just ending. Our Infrastructure and Debt Management businesses continue to perform well."
