received in respect of 134,057,327 Ordinary Shares, representing
approximately 91.2 per cent. of the Ordinary Shares to which the Offer
relates and approximately 83.9 per cent. of the issued ordinary share capital

ordinary share capital of WT Foods on a fully diluted basis, of which
10,625,365 Ordinary Shares are subject to the Management Exchange Agreement
and therefore not subject to the Offer. All of these 21,980,348 Ordinary
Shares are either subject to irrevocable undertakings or letters of support
as referred to in the second paragraph, in respect of which acceptances
relating to 10,471,226 Ordinary Shares have been received, or otherwise have
been conditionally sold to Tiger Three pursuant to the Management Exchange
Agreement.

Save as disclosed above, neither Tiger Three nor any person acting, or deemed
to be acting, in concert with Tiger Three owned any Ordinary Shares (or
