Takeover Code Disclosure

 

Since the time of flotation of the Company, the members of the Adderley family noted above (the "Concert Party") have been considered to be acting in concert for the purposes of Rule 9 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "City Code"). The Takeover Panel has (i) consented to the above-referenced transfers of shares within the Concert Party whereby Will Adderley's shareholding has increased to a level in excess of 30% of the issued share capital of the Company; and (ii) has confirmed that there is no obligation on Will Adderley to make a general offer to all shareholders of the Company to acquire their ordinary shares in the Company pursuant to Rule 9 of the City Code.

 

Shareholders should note that the Concert Party controls in excess of 50% of the ordinary shares in issue in the Company, as it has done since the flotation of the Company. Accordingly, the Concert Party, for so long as the members of the Concert Party continue to be treated as acting in concert, may be able to increase its aggregate interests in shares in the Company without incurring any obligation under Rule 9 of the City Code to make a general offer to all shareholders of the Company to acquire their Ordinary Shares.

 

The Takeover Panel has also confirmed that, for so long as the members of the Concert Party continue to be treated as acting in concert, the Company may exercise any authority to make market purchases of its own shares which has been approved by shareholders, without seeking a separate shareholder waiver of any resulting obligation to make a general offer under Rule 9 of the City Code and no obligation to make a general offer under Rule 9 of the City Code will result.
