Forward looking statements

The Information may contain certain "forward looking statements" concerning the CCIL group of companies. Generally, the words "will", "may", "should", "continue", "believes", "expects", "intends", "anticipates" or similar expressions identify forward looking statements. The forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by them. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond the companies' abilities to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions and the behaviours of other market participants, and therefore undue reliance should not be placed on such statements which speak only as at the date of the relevant document. CCIL assumes no obligation to, and does not intend to, update any forward-looking statements, except as required by the FSA, the London Stock Exchange, the Australian Securities Exchange or applicable law.

No statement in this Micro Site is intended to constitute a profit forecast for any period and no statement should be interpreted to mean that earnings or earnings per share will necessarily be greater or lesser than those for the relevant preceding financial periods for CCIL as appropriate.

Responsibility

The only responsibility accepted by the directors of CCIL (the "Directors") is that, to the best of their knowledge and belief (having taken all reasonable care to ensure that this is the case), the Information is in accordance with the facts and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of the Information.

The Directors are responsible in the terms set out above solely for the Information and not for any other information on the website which you may visit on leaving the Micro Site.

None of the Directors, CCIL and its affiliated companies have reviewed and none of them is responsible for, or accepts any liability in respect of, any information on any other website that may be linked to this website by a third party.

The Information speaks only at the specified date of the relevant document and CCIL has, and accepts, no responsibility or duty to update such documents (other than to the extent such duty arises as a matter of law).

If you are in any doubt about the contents of the Micro Site or the action you should take, you should seek your own financial advice from an independent financial adviser authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (UK) or the holder of an Australian financial services licence or, if you are located outside the UK or Australia, from an appropriately authorised independent financial adviser.
