As set out in the Third Quarter 2020 Trading Update announcement released earlier today, the Company
is pleased to recommence dividend payments through the declaration of an interim dividend of 2.65000 US

The default payment for dividends is in US dollars. However, shareholders who hold their shares through
the London Stock Exchange can elect to have dividends paid in pounds sterling (GBP) by completing a
Dividend Currency Election Form (the 'Form'). A copy of the Form can be found on the Company's website

pound sterling dividend payment for this dividend will be available to shareholders until 20 November 2020,
by which date the Form needs to be returned duly completed to Link Asset Services, Shareholder Solutions,
34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4TU. All enquiries regarding the Form should be sent to the
same address or by telephone Link Asset Services on: 0871 664 0300 (and if outside the United Kingdom
