The Court order approving the Reduction of Capital has now been registered with the Registrar of Companies and accordingly the Reduction of Capital has now become effective.

The creation of this distributable reserve as result of the Reduction of Capital will afford the Company more flexibility to make distributions to its shareholders, if thought fit by the Directors.
