I would hazard to guess that the first price rise in June was the "normal" annual increase. The second, just announced, was probably due to the exchange rate situation, Perhaps due to the expiration of a currency hedge contract and the consequent need to adjust prices while rewriting a new hedge for pounds v. dollar exposure?
