Notice of the termination of the Depositary Agreement has been given by Capita to holders of Orad depositary interests and the final date for notifying CIRGT is 1 August 2008. The Ordinary Shares may be transferred to Clearstream Banking Frankfurt (CBF), Clearstream Banking Luxembourg (CBL) or Euroclear (EC). If neither you nor your bank (or other institution holding your depositary interests) has an account with any of the above, you should contact a custodian bank like Deutsche Bank AG, Frankfurt (contact person: Ruth Bürgermeister, Domestic Custody Service, Deutsche Bank Frankfurt, Tel.: +49 (0)69 910 63454, Fax: +49 (0)69 910 69817, email: ruth.buergermeister@db.com) in order to set up custody services.
