* With effect from 6 October 2014, the London Stock Exchange will shorten the standard settlement cycle from T + 3 to T + 2. This change is in accordance with the Central Securities Depository Regulation to harmonise securities settlement cycles in the European Union. Consequently, ordinary shares traded on the London Stock Exchange will now settle one day earlier than ADSs traded on the New York Stock Exchange in the United States which remains on a T + 3 settlement cycle.
