This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to acquire the Rights Issue Shares or to take up entitlements to Nil Paid Rights in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or solicitation is unlawful.

Overseas Shareholders and any person (including, without limitation, custodians, nominees and trustees) who has a contractual or other legal obligation to forward this announcement or the Provisional Allotment Letter in or into a jurisdiction outside the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland should read refer to the Prospectus sent to Shareholders.
