Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made.

In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events in the forward-looking statements may not occur or the Company's or the Group's actual results, performance or achievements might be materially different from the expected results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. None of Credit Suisse International, CSSEL, KKR Capital Markets, Citi, HSBC, Barclays and GS (together, the "Banks"), the Company or any member of the Group, or any of such person's affiliates or their respective directors, officers, employees, agents or advisers undertake to update, review or revise any such forward-looking statement or any other information contained in this announcement, except to the extent required by applicable law.

Nothing contained herein constitutes or should be construed as (i) investment, tax, accounting or legal advice; (ii) a representation that any investment or strategy is suitable or appropriate to your individual circumstances; or (iii) a personal recommendation to you.

None of the Banks or any of their respective affiliates or any of their or their affiliates' directors, officers, employees, advisers or agents accepts any responsibility or liability whatsoever for, or makes any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to, the truth, accuracy or completeness of the information in this announcement (or whether any information has been omitted from the announcement) or any other information relating to the Company, the Group or its associated companies, whether written, oral or in a visual or electronic form, and howsoever transmitted or made available, or for any loss howsoever arising from any use of the announcement or its contents or otherwise arising in connection therewith.

Each of Credit Suisse International, CSSEL, Citi, HSBC, Barclays and GS are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (the "PRA") and regulated by the FCA and the PRA in the United Kingdom. KKR Capital Markets is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA. Each of the Banks will be acting exclusively for the Company and no one else in connection with the IPO. They will not regard any other person as their client in relation to the IPO and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to their respective clients nor for giving advice in relation to the IPO, the contents of this announcement or any transaction, arrangement or other matter referred to herein. In connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union, the Banks may, at their discretion, undertake their obligations in connection with the IPO by any of their affiliates based in the EEA.

In connection with the IPO, each of CSSEL, KKR Capital Markets, Citi, HSBC, Barclays and GS  (together, the "Underwriters") and any of their affiliates, acting as investors for their own accounts, may take up a portion of the Shares in the IPO as a principal position, and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for its own accounts in such Shares and other securities of the Company or related investments and may offer or sell such Shares or other investments otherwise than in connection with the IPO. Accordingly, references in the Prospectus to the Shares being issued, offered, subscribed for, acquired, placed or otherwise dealt in should be read as including any issue or offer to, or subscription, acquisition, placing of or dealing in the Shares by, any Underwriter and any of its affiliates acting as an investor for its own accounts. In addition, certain of the Underwriters or their affiliates may enter into financing arrangements (including swaps) with investors in connection with which the Underwriters (or their affiliates) may from time to time acquire, hold or dispose of Shares. Neither the Underwriters nor any of their affiliates intend to disclose the extent of any such investment or transactions otherwise than in accordance with any legal or regulatory obligations to do so.

In connection with the IPO, Citigroup Global Markets Limited, as stabilising manager (the "Stabilising Manager"), or any of its agents, may (but will be under no obligation to), to the extent permitted by applicable law and for stabilisation purposes, on behalf of the Underwriters, over allot Shares up to a total of 15% of the total number of Shares included in the IPO or effect other transactions with a view to supporting the market price of the Shares or any options, warrants or rights with respect thereto, or other interest in the Shares or other securities of the Company, in each case at a higher level than that which might otherwise prevail in the open market. The Stabilising Manager is not required to enter into such transactions and such transactions may be effected on any securities market, over the counter market, stock exchange or otherwise and may be undertaken at any time during the period commencing on the date of the conditional dealings in the Shares on the London Stock Exchange and ending no later than 30 calendar days thereafter. Stabilisation transactions aim at supporting the market price of the securities during the stabilisation period. Such stabilisation, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time without prior notice. If such stabilisation occurs, it will be undertaken at the London Stock Exchange. However, there will be no obligation on the Stabilising Manager or any of its agents to effect stabilising transactions and there is no assurance that stabilising transactions will be undertaken. In no event will measures be taken to stabilise the market price of the Shares above the offer price. Except as required by law or regulation, neither the Stabilising Manager nor any of its agents intends to disclose the extent of any over allotments made and/or stabilisation transactions conducted in relation to the IPO.

For the purposes of allowing the Stabilising Manager to cover short positions resulting from any such over-allotment and/or from sales of Shares effected by it during the stabilising period, the Stabilising Manager will be granted an over-allotment option (the "Over-allotment Option"), pursuant to which it may purchase, or procure purchasers for, Shares representing up to 15% of the total number of Shares included in the IPO at the offer price (the "Over-allotment Shares"). The Over-allotment Option will be exercisable in whole or in part upon notice by the Stabilising Manager at any time on or before the 30th calendar day after the commencement of conditional dealings in the Shares on the London Stock Exchange. Any Over-allotment Shares made available pursuant to the Over-allotment Option will be made available on the same terms and conditions as Shares being offered pursuant to the IPO, will rank pari passu in all respects with all other Shares (including with respect to pre-emption rights) and will form a single class with all other Shares for all purposes, including with respect to voting and for all dividends and distributions thereafter declared, made or paid on the ordinary share capital of the Company.

For the avoidance of doubt, the contents of the Group's website, including the websites of the Group's business units, are not incorporated by reference into, and do not form part of, this announcement.

Information to Distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, "distributors" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) should note that: the price of the Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the IPO. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Underwriters will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Shares.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
