These options have all vested. The executive directors are not eligible to receive further awards under this scheme. The characteristics for this scheme are such that gains on exercise of options were recognised in prior years in respect of all the share rights reflected in the table. From 3 June 2000 the SAB Executive Share Purchase Scheme was closed for purposes of new awards. The successor Mirror Scheme is used for the purposes of grants to employees of South African employers in the group and certain categories of other employees of South African origin elsewhere in the group (other than SABMiller plc directors), principally in Africa.
