11. Additional informationxvi


Kiltearn Partners LLP (“Kiltearn”) acts as an investment manager for the
clients detailed in question 4 above (our “Clients”). In acting for our
Clients, Kiltearn are given full discretion over their investments. However, we
do not act as our Client’s custodian and therefore shares are not held in our
name but in the name of each Client’s custodian bank.

Following the acquisition of Amec Foster Wheeler by John Wood Group PLC, the
issued share capital increased from 383,175,384 ordinary shares to 677,685,600
ordinary shares. As a result, Kiltearn’s percentage ownership in John Wood
Group PLC has decreased.
