To be effective, all proxy appointments must be lodged with the Company’s Registrars at: Computershare Investor Services PLC, The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bristol BS99 6ZY by 24 April 2017 at 8.45 am. Explanatory Notes: 1. Every holder has the right to appoint some other person(s) of their choice, who need not be a shareholder, as his proxy to exercise all or any of his rights, to attend, speak and vote on their behalf at the meeting. If you wish to appoint a person other than the Chairman, please insert the name of your chosen proxy holder in the space provided (see reverse). If the proxy is being appointed in relation to less than your full voting entitlement, please enter in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. If returned without an indication as to how the proxy shall vote on any particular matter, the proxy will exercise his discretion as to whether, and if so how, he votes (or if this proxy form has been issued in respect of a designated account for a shareholder, the proxy will exercise his discretion as to whether, and if so how, he votes). At the meeting, the Chairman may vote as he chooses on any resolution for which a voting direction has not been given and on any further or amended resolution. His current intention is to vote in favour of each of the proposed resolutions. The Chairman's intention necessarily expresses his intention at the date the 2017 AGM notice was printed prior to circulation to shareholders and therefore, in exceptional circumstances, the Chairman's intention may change subsequently. You may appoint more than one proxy provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise the rights attached to a different share or shares held by you. To appoint more than one proxy, an additional proxy form(s) may be obtained by contacting the Registrar’s helpline on 01534 281842 or you may photocopy this form. Please indicate in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. Please also indicate by marking the box provided if the proxy instruction is one of multiple instructions being given. All forms must be signed and should be returned together in the same envelope. The ‘Vote Withheld’ option overleaf is provided to enable you to abstain on any particular resolution. However, it should be noted that a ‘Vote Withheld’ is not a vote in law and will not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes ‘For’ and ‘Against’ a resolution. 5. Entitlement to attend and vote at the meeting and the number of votes which may be cast thereat will be determined by reference to the Register of Members of the Company at 6.00pm on the day which is two business days before the day of the meeting or, if this meeting is adjourned, in the register of members at 6.00 pm on the day which is two business days before the day of any adjourned meeting. Changes to entries on the Register of Members after that time shall be disregarded in determining the rights of any person to attend and vote at the meeting. To appoint one or more proxies or to give an instruction to a proxy (whether previously appointed or otherwise) via the CREST system, CREST messages must be received by the issuer’s agent (ID number 3RA50) no later than 8.45am on 24 April 2017. For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp generated by the CREST system) from which the issuer’s agent is able to retrieve the message. The Company may treat as invalid a proxy appointment sent by CREST in the circumstances set out in Article 34 of the Companies (Uncertificated Securities) (Jersey) Order 1999. The above is how your address appears on the Register of Members. If this information is incorrect please ring the Shareholder Information Line on 01534 281842 to request a change of address form or go to www.henderson.com/group to use the online Investor Centre service. Any alterations made to this form should be initialled. If someone other than you signs this form, the letter of authority, power of attorney or certified copy of the power of attorney authorising such person to sign on your behalf must accompany this form. The completion and return of this form will not preclude a member from attending the meeting and voting in person. 2. 6. 7. 3. 8. 9. 4.

This personalised form is not transferable between different: (i) account holders; or (ii) uniquely designated accounts.
