(1) During the third quarter of 2008, the Group acquired a controlling
interest in the entity that holds the Fiesta Casino Holiday Inn Express
(formerly Garden Court) operation, and as a result began consolidating
that operation at 100 percent beginning 1 September 2008. The balance of
the Costa Rican operation is a joint venture of the Group and its
results of operations are proportionally consolidated into the Group's
financial statements, therefore the table above represents the Group's
50 percent share in all the operations other than the Holiday Inn
Express property which is reported at 100 percent. The Group owns
controlling interest in all other countries and accordingly sales are
reported at 100 percent. For details of Group ownership at the country
level please refer to the Group's Annual Report 2008.


A full business update will be provided in the Group's 2009 Half-Yearly Financial Report which is scheduled to be released on 27 August 2009.
