NOW THIS DEED HEREBY WITNESSETH as follows:-

1.      DEFINITIONS AND INTERPRETATION

        Words and  phrases  which are not defined or  construed  in this Deed of
        Variation but which are defined or construed in the Facility  Agreement,
        the Companies  Ordinance or the Bankruptcy  Ordinance shall be construed
        as having the  meanings  ascribed  to them  therein.  To the extent that
        there is any  inconsistency  between the terms of this Deed of Variation
        and the Facility  Agreement,  the terms of this Deed of Variation  shall
        prevail.  References  to  clause  numbers  are to those  clauses  in the
        Facility Agreement, unless indicated otherwise.

2.      VARIATION

2.1     The parties  hereto hereby agree that the Facility  Agreement  shall
        be varied in the following manner:-

        2.1.1     By  the  deletion  in  Sub-clause   11.2.10  of  the  Facility
                  Agreement of the words "30TH JULY, 2005", and the insertion of
                  the words "12TH AUGUST, 2005" in substitution therefor.

3.       NO OTHER AMENDMENTS OR WAIVERS

3.1      The  execution,  delivery and  effectiveness  of this Deed of Variation
         shall  not  operate  as a waiver of any  right,  power or remedy of the
         Agent  under  the  Facility  Agreement  or  any of  the  other  Finance
         Documents,  nor  constitute  a waiver of any  provision of the Facility
         Agreement  or  any of the  other  Finance  Documents.  Except  for  the
         amendments  and  agreements  set forth above,  the text of the Facility
         Agreement and all other Finance Documents shall remain unchanged and in
         full force and effect and each of the  Borrowers  hereby  ratifies  and
         confirms its obligations  thereunder.  This Deed of Variation shall not
         constitute a modification of the Facility Agreement or any of the other
         Finance  Documents  or a course of dealing  with the Agent at  variance
         with the Facility  Agreement or any of the other Finance Documents such
         as to require further notice by the Agent to require strict  compliance
         with the terms of the Facility  Agreement  or any of the other  Finance
         Documents in the future,  except as expressly set forth herein. Each of
         the Borrowers acknowledges and expressly agrees that the Agent reserves
         the right to,  and does in fact,  require  strict  compliance  with all
         terms and  provisions  of the Facility  Agreement and all other Finance
         Documents.  The  Borrowers  have no knowledge  of any  challenge to the
         Agent's claims arising under the Facility Agreement or any of the other
         Finance Documents, or to the effectiveness of the Facility Agreement or
         any of the other Finance Documents.

3.2      The parties hereby acknowledge and confirm that neither the obligations
         of any  Borrower  nor the rights and  remedies  of the Agent  under the
         Facility  Agreement or any of the other Finance  Documents or otherwise
         conferred by law shall be discharged,  prejudiced or impaired by reason
         of the  execution  of this Deed of  Variation  or the  variation of the
         terms and conditions of the Facility  Agreement in accordance with this
         Deed of Variation.

4.       GENERAL
