"Safe Harbor" Statement under the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: Some or all of the statements in this document that relate to future plans, expectations, events, performances and the like are forward-looking statements, as defined in the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results of events could differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors.

Singer Capital Markets Limited ("Singer Capital Markets"), which is a member of the London Stock Exchange and is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the Financial Services Authority, is acting exclusively for the Company and no one else in connection with the Fundraising and Admission. It will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to customers of Singer Capital Markets or for advising any other person on the transactions and arrangements referred to herein. No representation or warranty, express or implied, is made by Singer Capital Markets as to any of the contents of this announcement for which the Company and the Directors are solely responsible. Singer Capital Markets has not authorised the contents of, or any part of, this announcement and (without limiting the statutory rights of any person to whom this announcement is issued) no liability whatsoever is accepted by Singer Capital Markets for the accuracy of any information or opinions contained in this announcement or for the omission of any material information, for which the Company and the Directors are solely responsible.

This Announcement has been issued by, and is the sole responsibility of, the Company. No representation or warranty, express or implied is, or will be made as to, or in relation to, and no responsibility or liability is, or will be, accepted by either Singer Capital Markets or by any of their affiliates or agents as to, or in relation to, the accuracy or completeness of this Announcement or any other written or oral information made available to or publicly available to any interested party or its advisers, and any liability therefore is expressly disclaimed.  

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS AN ADVERTISEMENT. IT IS NOT A PROSPECTUS AND INVESTORS SHOULD NOT SUBSCRIBE FOR OR PURCHASE ANY SHARES REFERRED TO IN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT EXCEPT ON THE BASIS OF INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE PROSPECTUS.

Neither the content of Xaar's website nor any website accessible by hyperlinks on Xaar's website is incorporated in, or forms part of, this Announcement.

This Announcement is not for release, publication or distribution, directly or indirectly, in or into the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa or any other jurisdiction into which the same would be unlawful. 

This Announcement does not contain or constitute an offer of, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or subscribe for, the New Ordinary Shares or any other securities to any person in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa, or the United States or in any jurisdiction to whom or in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful. Subject to certain exceptions, the securities referred to herein may not be offered or sold in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa or to, or for the account or benefit of, any national, resident or citizen of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa. The offer and sale of the securities referred to herein has not been and will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under the applicable securities laws of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa. The ability of persons not resident in the United Kingdom to participate in the Fundraising may be affected by the laws of the relevant jurisdictions in which they are resident or incorporated. Such persons should inform themselves about and observe any applicable requirements in connection herewith. 

The New Ordinary Shares have not been and will not be registered under the US Securities Act 1933, as amended, or under the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States or under any securities laws of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa or any other jurisdiction where to do so would be unlawful and may not be offered, sold, taken up, exercised, resold, renounced, transferred or delivered, directly or indirectly, within the United States, or within any of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa or any other jurisdiction where to do so would be unlawful. There will be no public offer of the New Ordinary Shares in the United States. 

The distribution of this Announcement and the offering of the New Ordinary Shares in jurisdictions other than the United Kingdom may be restricted by law. No action has been taken by the Company or Singer Capital Markets that would permit an offering of such shares or possession or distribution of this Announcement or any other offering or publicity material relating to such shares in any jurisdiction where action for that purpose is required. Persons into whose possession this Announcement comes are required by the Company and Singer Capital Markets to inform themselves about, and to observe, any such restrictions. Any failure to comply with these restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

This Announcement is for information only and does not constitute or form part of any offer or invitation to issue, acquire or dispose of any securities or investment advice in any jurisdiction. 

No statement in this Announcement is intended to be a profit forecast and no statement in this Announcement should be interpreted to mean that earnings per share of Xaar for the current or future financial years would necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings per share of Xaar.

This Announcement includes statements that are, or may be deemed to be, "forward looking statements". These forward looking statements can be identified by the use of forward looking terminology, including the terms "believes", "projects", "estimates", "anticipates", "expects", "intends", "plans", "goal", "target", "aim", "may", "will", "would", "could", "should" or "continue" or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. These forward looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They appear in a number of places throughout this Announcement and include statements regarding the intentions, beliefs or current expectations of the Directors, the Company or the Group concerning, among other things, the Company's financial position and projections, business plan, financial model and future covenant ratios and compliance, the results of operations, prospects, growth, strategies and dividend policy of the Group and the industry in which it operates.

By their nature, forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future and may be beyond the Company's ability to control or predict. Forward looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. The Company's actual financial performance, results of operations, dividend policy and the development of the industry in which it operates may differ materially from the impression created by the forward looking statements contained in this Announcement. In addition, even if the financial performance, results of operations and dividend policy of the Company or the Group (as the case may be), and the development of the industry in which it operates, are consistent with the forward looking statements contained in this Announcement, those results or developments may not be indicative of results or developments in subsequent periods. Important factors that could cause these differences include, but are not limited to: the effect of the Fundraising on the Company; the Company's ability to generate growth or profitable growth; the Company's ability to generate sufficient cash over the longer term to service its debt; the Company's ability to control its capital expenditure and other costs; changes in the competitive framework in which the Company operates and its ability to retain market share; industry trends; general local and global economic, political, business and market conditions; significant changes in exchange rates, interest rates and tax rates; significant technological and market changes; future business combinations or dispositions; changes in government and other regulation, including in relation to the environment, health and safety and taxation; labour relations and work stoppages; and changes in business strategy or development plans. More detailed information on the potential factors which could affect the financial results of the Company is contained in the Company's public filings and reports.

The forward looking statements contained in this Announcement speak only as of the date of this Announcement. Other than in accordance with their legal or regulatory obligations (including under the Listing Rules and/or the Prospectus Rules and/or the Disclosure and Transparency Rules) and as required by the FSA, the London Stock Exchange or the City Code, the Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise publicly any forward looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. All subsequent written and oral forward looking statements attributable to the Company or the Group or individuals acting on behalf of the Company or the Group are expressly qualified in their entirety by this paragraph. Prospective investors should specifically consider the factors identified in this Announcement which could cause actual results to differ before making an investment decision.

This Announcement should not be considered a recommendation by the Company or its directors, officers, employees, advisers or any of its respective affiliates, parent undertakings, subsidiary undertakings or subsidiaries of its parent undertakings in relation to any subscription for the New Ordinary Shares.  Prices and volumes of, and income from, securities may go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount invested.  It should be noted that past performance is no guide to future performance. You are advised to read this Announcement and, once available, the Prospectus and the information incorporated by reference therein, in their entirety for a further discussion of the factors that could affect the Group's future performance and the industry in which it operates. Persons needing advice should consult an independent financial adviser.
