Shareholder Circular (the "Circular") dated 26 October 2009 - correction 



On 26 October 2009, the Board of Novera wrote to Novera Shareholders advising them that the Board firmly believed that the Offer of 62.5 pence per Novera Share made by Infinis Energy ("Infinis") substantially undervalued Novera and its prospects and unanimously recommended that Novera Shareholders rejected the Offer.


It is noted that on page 9 that there are limited alternative UK quoted vehicles for investors to participate in the UK wind sector. The statistics and commentary relating to Greenko Group plc and Renewable Energy Holdings plc should have read as follows:

Renewable Energy Holdings plc

Installed MW - 41.5

Installed UK onshore wind MW - none 

Commentary - Operational assets in wind in Germany and landfill gas in the UK 


As stated on page 9, the Directors believe that Novera has a scarcity value.

Dealing Disclosure Requirements


Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Takeover Code (the "Code"), if any person is, or becomes, "interested" (directly or indirectly) in 1% or more of any class of "relevant securities" of Novera, all "dealings" in any "relevant securities" of that company (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such "relevant securities") must be publicly disclosed by no later than 3.30 p.m. (London time) on the London business day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement will continue until the date on which the offer becomes, or is declared, unconditional as to acceptances, lapses or is otherwise withdrawn or on which the "offer period" otherwise ends. If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire an "interest" in "relevant securities" of Novera, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.


Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Code, all "dealings" in "relevant securities" of Novera by the Infinis or by Novera, or by any of their respective "associates", must be disclosed by no later than 12.00 noon (London time) on the London business day following the date of the relevant transaction.


A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose "relevant securities" "dealings" should be disclosed, and the number of such securities in issue, can be found on the Takeover Panel's website at www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk.


"Interests in securities" arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an "interest" by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.


Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Code, which can also be found on the Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a "dealing" under Rule 8, you should consult the Panel.
