These shares are called `Partnership shares`. * At the same time the Company allots to participants via the Trustee one `Matching share` for every two Partnership shares purchased that month (up to a maximum of 22 Matching shares per month). * Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish. However, Directors and others bound by the Company`s Securities Dealing Code (the "Code") may not make such a change during a close period or when otherwise prohibited from dealing by the Code.
