and

Notice of General Meeting

 

The Board of Reabold (AIM: RBD), the AIM traded investment company investing in the E&P sector, today announces a proposed Placing by way of an accelerated bookbuild to raise up to £7.33 million (before expenses).

Summary of the Placing

·              The Company intends to raise up to £7.33 million (before expenses) through the placing of up to 1,222,000,000 new Ordinary Shares ("Placing Shares") arranged by Arden Partners plc ("Arden") and Whitman Howard Limited ("Whitman Howard") (together, the "Joint Brokers") at 0.6 pence per share with new and certain existing shareholders.

·              Further details of the Placing are set out below and in the Appendix to this Announcement.

·              The net proceeds from the Placing will provide the Company with capital to exploit a number of opportunities that the Directors believe have the capacity to provide significant returns on investment.

·              Completion of the Placing is conditional, amongst other things, upon on Admission to AIM of the Placing Shares and Shareholder approval of Resolutions 1 and 2 to enable the issue of the Placing Shares, which will be sought at a General Meeting of the Company expected to be held at 11.00 a.m. on 19 March 2018.

·              A Circular containing further details of the Placing and including a notice convening the General Meeting is expected to be despatched to Shareholders following completion of the Bookbuild Process (as defined below) and will thereafter be available on the Company's website, www.reabold.com.

Further details of the Placing

Arden and Whitman Howard are acting as joint brokers in connection with the placing. Arden is sole bookrunner in connection with the Placing.

The Placing, by way of an accelerated bookbuild, will be launched immediately following the release of this Announcement and will be made available to eligible new and existing institutional investors (the "Bookbuilding Process"). The book will close at the discretion of Arden (following consultation with the Company and Whitman Howard). The completion of the Bookbuilding Process will be announced as soon as practicable.

The Placing is subject to the terms and conditions set out in the appendix (the "Appendix") to this Announcement. The Placing is not underwritten.

By choosing to participate in the Placing and by making an oral and/or written legally binding offer to acquire Placing Shares, investors will be deemed to have read and understood this Announcement in its entirety, including the Appendix, and to be making such offer on the terms and subject to the conditions contained herein and to be making the representations, warranties, undertakings and acknowledgements contained in the Appendix to this Announcement.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, represent 79% of the Existing Ordinary Shares prior to the issue of the Placing Shares and 44% of the enlarged issued share capital following the Placing  and will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue.

Application will be made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM.

Settlement for the Placing Shares and Admission is expected to take place on 8.00 a.m. on 20 March 2018. The Placing is conditional upon, among other things, Resolutions 1 and 2 being duly passed at the General Meeting and admission to trading on AIM becoming effective in respect of the Placing Shares.

The Appendix sets out further information relating to the Placing and the terms and conditions of the Placing.

This Announcement should be read in its entirety. In particular, you should read and understand the information provided in the "Important Notices" section of this Announcement.

Background to and reasons for the Placing

The Company is an investment company investing in the E&P sector. The Company's investing policy is to acquire direct and indirect interests in exploration and producing projects and assets in the natural resources sector, and consideration is currently given to investment opportunities anywhere in the world.  However it is the Board's intention, to concentrate on investments in European oil and gas projects.

The Company raised £3.96m by way of a placing in September 2017 and £1.96m by way of subscription in October 2017. The proceeds of the two transactions were used to invest £1.5m into Corallian Energy Limited ("Corallian") for a 35.4 percent interest in the company and £1.5m into Danube Petroleum Limited ("Danube"), a newly formed subsidiary of ASX listed ADX Energy Ltd, (ASX:ADX) for a 29 percent interest in the Danube.

Corallian has a portfolio of UK oil & gas licences, including the Colter appraisal project ("Colter"), that Corallian management states has a high chance of success given the appraisal nature of the project together with industry comparative low drilling costs.

Danube holds a 50 percent interest in the high impact Parta licence ("Parta"), onshore Romania, and a 100% interest in a low-risk appraisal campaign within Parta, comprising of two wells planned in H2 2018 to test 33 BCF prospective and contingent resources.

The Board have considered the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of including an open offer to existing shareholders in conjunction with the placing which is principally to institutional shareholders. Given the existing small number of shareholders in the Company, their conclusion was that this was not the right time to do so; but this will be considered for any future raises to support the Company's investing policy as the shareholder base grows.

Use of proceeds

The net proceeds of the Placing will be used to invest in opportunities that meet the Company's investing policy. The Directors believe that current market conditions have created a portfolio of viable potential investments which could be executed completed expediently on favourable terms. The Directors believe that by raising capital, the Company will be well positioned to exploit the best of these opportunities. Although there can be no certainty that any particular potential investment identified by the Company will complete, the Directors believe that there is sufficient number of projects in the UK and Continental Europe (including in existing investments) that they will be able to deploy the capital raised in the short term.

An updated presentation on the Company's existing investments and illustrative examples of the type of further potential investments the Company could consider making in accordance with its investing policy is available today on the Company's website at www.reabold.com. There can be no certainty that the Company will be successful in making any such potential pipeline investments.

Current trading and prospects

As announced on 12 February 2018, Reabold is intending to participate in a further Corallian fundraise. This will allow Corallian to drill the Colter prospect at a 50% equity interest, and to exercise an option to drill Wick at a 40% interest as opposed to its current fully carried 25%.

Corallian expects the Colter well to be drilled in Q2 2018 and the Wick well to be drilled in Q3 2018.

In Romania, Danube Petroleum expects to drill the first well in the Parta appraisal programme in H2 2018. Danube is sufficiently funded for this first well. The planned Parta appraisal well consists of a two well programme, and Danube is open to incremental funding from financial investors or oil company partners to facilitate the drilling of the second well. Reabold may, but is not committed to, increase its investment into Danube Petroleum.

The Placing Agreement

Pursuant to the terms of the Placing Agreement, the Joint Brokers, as agent for the Company, have conditionally agreed to use reasonable endeavours to procure subscribers for the Placing Shares.

The Placing has not been underwritten by the Joint Brokers. The Placing Agreement is conditional, amongst other things, upon 1 and 2 being duly passed at the General Meeting and Admission of the Placing Shares becoming effective on or before 8.00 a.m. on 20 March 2018 (or such later time and/or date as the Company and Arden may agree, but in any event by no later than 8.00 a.m. on 30 March 2018).

The Placing Agreement contains customary warranties from the Company in favour of the Joint Brokers and the Nominated Advisor in relation to, amongst other matters, the accuracy of the information in this document and other matters relating to the Company and its business. In addition, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Joint Brokers and Nominated Advisor in relation to certain defined liabilities that it may incur in respect of the Placing. Arden has the right to terminate the Placing Agreement in certain circumstances prior to Admission, in particular, in the event of a material breach of the warranties given to the Joint Brokers and the Nominated Advisor in the Placing Agreement, the failure of the Company to comply in any material respect with any of its obligations under the Placing Agreement, the occurrence of a force majeure event or a material adverse change affecting the condition, or the earnings or business affairs or prospects of the Company as a whole.

The Placing Agreement also provides for the Company to pay all costs, charges and expenses of, or incidental to, the Placing including all legal and other professional fees and expenses.

The Placing Shares have not been made available to the public and have not been offered or sold in any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

All Placing monies received by Arden under the terms of the Placing will not become the property of the Company until Admission of the Placing Shares.

The General Meeting

The Directors do not currently have Shareholder authority to carry out the Placing or to allot all of the Placing Shares. Accordingly, the Board will be seeking the approval of Shareholders at the General Meeting to allot and issue the Placing Shares in connection with the Placing and to disapply statutory pre-emption rights. Further, the Board is seeking the approval of Shareholders at the General Meeting to allot and issue Ordinary Shares, in addition to those to be allotted under the Placing, to create headroom to allow the board to issue a limited number of Ordinary Shares following the Placing. This latter authority will expire at the earlier of the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting of the Company to be held in 2018 or the date falling 18 months from the date of passing the relevant Resolution.

Set out in the Circular proposed to be despatched to Shareholders is a notice convening the General Meeting to be held at 11.00 a.m. on 19 March 2018 at the offices of Hill Dickinson LLP, 105 Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6EE, at which the following Resolutions will be proposed:

1.       Resolution 1 is proposed as an ordinary resolution, to authorise the Directors to allot the Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing and, to be passed, more than half of the votes cast must be in favour of the resolution;

2.       Resolution 2 is proposed as a special resolution to authorise the Directors, under section 570(1) of the Act, to allot the Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing for cash on a non-pre-emptive basis and, to be passed, at least three quarters of the votes cast must be in favour of the resolution;

3.      Resolution 3 is proposed as an ordinary resolution to authorise the Directors, under section 551 of the Act to allot shares up to a nominal amount of £276,241.59 in addition to any existing authorities including any granted under Resolution 1 and, to be passed, more than half of the votes cast must be in favour of the resolution; and

4.      Resolution 4 is proposed as a special resolution to authorise the Directors, under section 570(1) of the Act, to allot shares up to a nominal amount of £276,241.59 in addition to any existing authorities including any granted under Resolution 2 and, to be passed, at least three quarters of the votes cast must be in favour of the resolution.

Following the Placing the Directors will have utilised nearly all of their authorities to issue new ordinary shares free of pre-emption rights and accordingly they are seeking by way of Resolutions 3 and 4 shareholders' authority to issue up to a further 276,241,590 Ordinary Shares. Whilst the Directors have no current plans to utilise such additional headroom it will allow them to react quickly and cost effectively to any future opportunities that may arise. If such authority were to be granted it would represent 10% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company following the Placing.

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 Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities 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 should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Placing 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 Placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Arden and Whitman Howard 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 Placing Shares.

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

Details of the Placing Agreement and the Placing Shares

Pursuant to the Placing Agreement, the Joint Brokers have, subject to the terms and conditions set out therein, agreed to use reasonable endeavours, as agents of the Company, to procure subscribers for the Placing Shares pursuant to the Bookbuilding Process described in this Announcement and as set out in the Placing Agreement.

The Placing is conditional on the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not being terminated in accordance with its terms.

The Placing is not being underwritten.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be subject to the articles of association of the Company, be credited as fully paid and rank pari passu in all respects with each other and with the Existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of the Ordinary Shares after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

The Placing Shares will be issued free of any encumbrance, lien or other security interest.

Application for admission to trading

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Placing Agreement (the "Conditions"), it is expected that Admission will take place and dealings in the Placing Shares will commence on AIM on or around 8.00 a.m. on 20 March 2018.

Bookbuilding Process

Commencing today, Arden will be conducting an accelerated bookbuilding process (to determine demand for participation in the Placing by Placees. This Announcement gives details of the terms and conditions of, and the mechanics of participation in, the Placing. However, Arden will be entitled to effect the Placing by such alternative method to the Bookbuilding Process as it may, after consultation with the Company, determine. No commissions will be paid by or to Placees in respect of any participation in the Placing or subscription for Placing Shares.

Participation in, and principal terms of, the Bookbuilding Process

Participation in the Placing is by invitation only and will only be available to persons who may lawfully be, and are, invited to participate by the Joint Brokers. The Joint Brokers and each of their Affiliates are entitled to participate as Placees in the Bookbuilding Process.

The Bookbuilding Process will establish the number of Placing Shares to be issued pursuant to the Placing.

The book will open with immediate effect. The Bookbuilding Process is expected to close not later than 4.30 p.m. on 28 February 2018, but may be closed at such earlier or later time as Arden may, in its absolute discretion (after consultation with the Company), determine. A further announcement will be made following the close of the Bookbuilding Process detailing the number of Placing Shares to be subscribed for by the Placees at the Issue Price (the "Placing Results Announcement").

A bid in the Bookbuilding Process will be made on the terms and conditions in this Announcement and will be legally binding on the Placee on behalf of which it is made and, except with Arden's consent, will not be capable of variation or revocation after the close of the Bookbuilding Process.

A Placee who wishes to participate in the Bookbuilding Process should communicate its bid by telephone to its a sales contact at Arden or Whitman Howard. Each bid should state the number of Placing Shares which the prospective Placee wishes to subscribe for at the Issue Price. If successful, Arden will re-contact and confirm orally to Placees following the close of the Bookbuilding Process the size of their respective allocations and a trade confirmation will be despatched as soon as possible thereafter. Arden's oral confirmation of the size of allocations and each Placee's oral commitments to accept the same will constitute an irrevocable legally binding agreement in favour of the Company pursuant to which each such Placee will be required to accept the number of Placing Shares allocated to the Placee at the Issue Price and otherwise on the terms and subject to the conditions set out herein and in accordance with the Company's articles of association. Each Placee's allocation and commitment will be evidenced by a trade confirmation issued to such Placee by Arden. The terms of this Appendix will be deemed incorporated in that trade confirmation.

Arden reserves the right to scale back the number of Placing Shares to be subscribed by any Placee in the event that the Placing is oversubscribed. Arden also reserves the right not to accept offers to subscribe for Placing Shares or to accept such offers in part rather than in whole. The acceptance and, if applicable, scaling back of offers shall be at the absolute discretion of Arden.

Each Placee's obligations will be owed to the Company and to Arden. Following the oral confirmation referred to above, each Placee will also have an immediate, separate, irrevocable and binding obligation, owed to the Company and Arden, as agent of the Company, to pay to Arden (or as Arden may direct) in cleared funds an amount equal to the product of the Issue Price and the number of Placing Shares allocated to such Placee.

To the fullest extent permissible by law, none of the Joint Brokers, any holding company of the Joint Brokers, any subsidiary of the Joint Brokers, any subsidiary of any such holding company, any branch, affiliate or associated undertaking of any such company nor any of their respective directors, officers and employees (each an "Affiliate of the Joint Brokers") nor any person acting on their behalf shall have any liability to Placees (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise). In particular, none of the Joint Brokers, any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers nor any person acting on their behalf shall have any liability (including, to the extent legally permissible, any fiduciary duties), in respect of the conduct of the Bookbuilding Process or of such alternative method of effecting the Placing as Arden may determine.

All obligations of the Joint Brokers under the Placing will be subject to fulfillment of the conditions referred to in this Announcement including without limitation those referred to below under "Conditions of the Placing".

Conditions of the Placing

The Placing is conditional upon the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not having been terminated in accordance with its terms.

The obligations of the Joint Brokers under the Placing Agreement are conditional, amongst other things, upon:

1.    the warranties on the part of the Company contained in the Placing Agreement being true and accurate in all material respects and not misleading on and as of the date of the Placing Agreement and at Admission of the Placing Shares and the Joint Brokers and the Nominated Advisor receiving a certificate from the Company confirming such is the case; 

2.    the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Placing Agreement to the extent that they fall to be performed prior to Admission;

3.    the obligations of the Joint Brokers not having been terminated (as described below under "Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement");

4.    the Company allotting, subject to Admission, the Placing Shares in accordance with the Placing Agreement; and 

5.    Admission of the Placing Shares occurring not later than 8.00 a.m. on 20 March 2018 or such later time and/or date as the Joint Brokers may agree in writing with the Company (but in any event not later than 8.00 a.m. on 30 March 2018).

If (a) the Conditions of the Placing are not fulfilled (or to the extent permitted under the Placing Agreement waived by Arden), or (b) the Placing Agreement is terminated in the circumstances specified below, the Placing will lapse and each Placee's rights and obligations hereunder shall cease and determine at such time and no claim may be made by a Placee in respect thereof. None of the Joint Brokers, the Company, any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers, or any holding company of the Company, any subsidiary of the Company, any subsidiary of any such holding company, any branch, affiliate or associated undertaking of any such company or any of their respective directors, officers and employees (each a "Reabold Affiliate") shall have any liability to any Placee (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) in respect of any decision it may make as to whether or not to waive or to extend the time and/or date for the satisfaction of any condition in the Placing Agreement or in respect of the Placing generally.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees that the Joint Brokers' rights and obligations in respect of the Placing terminate, amongst others, in the circumstances described below under "Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement".

Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement

Arden has the right to terminate the Placing Agreement in certain circumstances prior to Admission, in particular, in the event of a material breach of the warranties given to the Joint Brokers in the Placing Agreement, the failure of the Company to comply in any material respect with any of its obligations under the Placing Agreement, the occurrence of a force majeure event or a material adverse change affecting the condition, or the earnings or business affairs or prospects of the Company.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees with Arden that the exercise by Arden of any right of termination or other discretion under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of Arden and that Arden need not make any reference to the Placees in this regard and that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, neither the Company, the Joint Brokers, any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers nor any Reabold Affiliate shall have any liability whatsoever to the Placees in connection with any such exercise or failure to so exercise. Any such waiver or extension will not affect Placees' commitments as set out in this Announcement.

No Prospectus

The Placing Shares are being offered to a limited number of specifically invited persons only and will not be offered in such a way as to require a prospectus in the UK or elsewhere in the European Economic Area.  No offering document or prospectus has been or will be prepared in relation to the Placing and no such prospectus is required (in accordance with the Prospectus Directive) to be published or submitted to be approved by the FCA and Placees' commitments will be made solely on the basis of the information contained in this Announcement.

Each Placee, by accepting a participation in the Placing, agrees that the content of this Announcement is exclusively the responsibility of the Company and confirms to the Joint Brokers and the Company that it has neither received nor relied on any information, representation, warranty or statement made by or on behalf of the Joint Brokers (other than the amount of the relevant Placing participation in the oral confirmation given to Placees and the trade confirmation referred to below), any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers, any persons acting on its or their behalf or the Company or any Reabold Affiliate and none of the Joint Brokers, any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers, any persons acting on their behalf, the Company, any Reabold Affiliate or any persons acting on their behalf will be liable for the decision of any Placee to participate in the Placing based on any other information, representation, warranty or statement which the Placee may have obtained or received (regardless of whether or not such information, representation, warranty or statement was given or made by or on behalf of any such persons). By participating in the Placing, each Placee acknowledges to and agrees with the Joint Brokers for itself and as agent for the Company that, except in relation to the information contained in this Announcement, it has relied on its own investigation of the business, financial or other position of the Company in deciding whether to participate in the Placing. Nothing in this paragraph shall exclude the liability of any person for fraudulent misrepresentation.

Registration and settlement

Settlement of transactions in the Placing Shares following Admission will take place within the CREST system, using the delivery versus payment mechanism, subject to certain exceptions. Arden reserves the right to require settlement for and delivery of the Placing Shares to Placees by such other means as it may deem necessary, including, without limitation, if delivery or settlement is not possible or practicable within the CREST system within the timetable set out in this Announcement or would not be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the Placee's jurisdiction.

The expected timetable for settlement will be as follows: 

Trade Date

16 March 2018

Settlement Date

20 March 2018

ISIN Code

GB00B95L0551

SEDOL

B95L055

Deadline for input instruction into CREST

CREST ID for Arden

Each Placee allocated Placing Shares in the Placing will be sent a trade confirmation stating the number of Placing Shares allocated to it, the Issue Price, the aggregate amount owed by such Placee to Arden and settlement instructions. Placees should settle against the Arden CREST ID shown above. It is expected that such trade confirmation will be despatched on the Trade Date shown above. Each Placee agrees that it will do all things necessary to ensure that delivery and payment is completed in accordance with either the standing CREST or certificated settlement instructions which it has in place with Arden.

It is expected that settlement will take place on the Settlement Date shown above on a delivery versus payment basis in accordance with the instructions set out in the trade confirmation unless otherwise notified by the Joint Broker.

Interest is chargeable daily on payments not received from Placees on the due date in accordance with the arrangements set out above at the rate of two percentage points above the base rate of Barclays Bank Plc.

Each Placee is deemed to agree that if it does not comply with these obligations, Arden may sell any or all of the Placing Shares allocated to the Placee on such Placee's behalf and retain from the proceeds, for Arden's own account and profit, an amount equal to the aggregate amount owed by the Placee plus any interest due. The Placee will, however, remain liable for any shortfall below the aggregate amount owed by such Placee and it may be required to bear any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (together with any interest or penalties) which may arise upon the sale of such Placing Shares on such Placee's behalf.

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent, the Placee should ensure that the trade confirmation is copied and delivered immediately to the relevant person within that organisation.

Insofar as Placing Shares are registered in the Placee's name or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom the Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares will, subject as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to any levy, stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax. If there are any circumstances in which any other stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax is payable in respect of the issue of the Placing Shares, none of the Joint Brokers or the Company shall be responsible for the payment thereof. Placees will not be entitled to receive any fee or commission in connection with the Placing.

If this is the case, the Placee should take its own advice and notify Arden accordingly;

30.   that when a Placee or any person acting on behalf of the Placee is dealing with Arden, any money held in an account with Arden on behalf of the Placee and/or any person acting on behalf of the Placee will not be treated as client money within the meaning of the relevant rules and regulations of the FCA. The Placee acknowledges that the money will not be subject to the protections conferred by the client money rules; as a consequence, this money will not be segregated in accordance with the client money rules and will be used by Arden in the course of its business; and the Placee will rank only as a general creditor of Arden (as the case may be);

31.   that in order to ensure compliance with the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (as amended) and the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017, Arden (for itself and as agent on behalf of the Company) or the Company's registrars may, in their absolute discretion, require verification of its identity. Pending the provision to Arden or the Company's registrars, as applicable, of evidence of identity, definitive certificates in respect of the Placing Shares may be retained at Arden's absolute discretion or, where appropriate, delivery of the Placing Shares to it in uncertificated form may be delayed at Arden's or the Company's registrars', as the case may be, absolute discretion. If within a reasonable time after a request for verification of identity Arden (for itself and as agent on behalf of the Company) or the Company's registrars have not received evidence satisfactory to them, Arden and/or the Company may, at its absolute discretion, terminate its commitment in respect of the Placing, in which event the monies payable on acceptance of allotment will, if already paid, be returned without interest to the account of the drawee's bank from which they were originally debited;

33.   that the Company, Arden, and others will rely upon the truth and accuracy of the foregoing representations, warranties, agreements, undertakings and acknowledgements;

34.   that the basis of allocation will be determined by Arden at its absolute discretion and that the right is reserved to reject in whole or in part and/or scale back any participation in the Placing;

35.   the Company and Arden may produce this Announcement pursuant to, in connection with, or as maybe required by any applicable law or regulation, administrative or legal proceeding or official inquiry with respect to the matters set forth herein;

36.   that its commitment to subscribe for Placing Shares on the terms and conditions set out herein will continue notwithstanding any amendment that may in future be made to the terms of the Placing and that Placees will have no right to be consulted or require that their consent be obtained with respect to the Company's or Arden's conduct of the Placing;

37.   that time is of the essence as regards its obligations under this Appendix; 

38.   that any document that is to be sent to it in connection with the Placing will be sent at its risk and may be sent to it at any address provided by it to Arden;

39.   that it will be bound by the terms of the articles of association of the Company; and

40.   that the terms and conditions in this Appendix and all documents into which this Appendix is incorporated by reference or otherwise validly forms a part and/or any agreements entered into pursuant to these terms and conditions and all agreements to acquire shares pursuant to the Placing and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with such agreements will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and it submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in relation to any claim, dispute or matter (including any non-contractual obligations) arising out of or in connection with any such agreements, except that enforcement proceedings in respect of the obligation to make payment for the Placing Shares (together with any interest chargeable thereon) may be taken by the Company or Arden in any jurisdiction in which the relevant Placee is incorporated or in which any of its securities have a quotation on a recognised stock exchange.

The acknowledgements, agreements, undertakings, representations and warranties referred to above are given to each of the Company, the Joint Brokers and the Nominated Adviser (for their own benefit and, where relevant, the benefit of any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers or Reabold Affiliate and any person acting on their behalf) and are irrevocable.

No claim shall be made against the Company, Whitman Howard, Beaumont Cornish, Arden, any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers, any Reabold Affiliate, or any other person acting on behalf of any of such persons by a Placee to recover any damage, cost, loss, charge or expense which it may suffer or incur by reason of or arising from or in connection with the performance of its obligations hereunder or otherwise howsoever in connection with the Placing or Admission.

No UK stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax should be payable to the extent that the Placing Shares are issued or transferred (as the case may be) into CREST to, or to the nominee of, a Placee who holds those shares beneficially (and not as agent or nominee for any other person) within the CREST system and registered in the name of such Placee or such Placee's nominee.

Any arrangements to issue or transfer the Placing Shares into a depositary receipts system or a clearance service or to hold the Placing Shares as agent or nominee of a person to whom a depositary receipt may be issued or who will hold the Placing Shares in a clearance service, or any arrangements subsequently to transfer the Placing Shares, may give rise to stamp duty and/or stamp duty reserve tax, for which neither the Company nor Arden will be responsible and the Placee to whom (or on behalf of whom, or in respect of the person for whom it is participating in the Placing as an agent or nominee) the allocation, allotment, issue or delivery of Placing Shares has given rise to such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax undertakes to pay such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax forthwith and to indemnify on an after-tax basis and to hold harmless the Company and the Joint Brokers in the event that any of the Company, any Reabold Affiliate, either of the Joint Brokers or any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers has incurred any such liability to stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax.

In addition, Placees should note that they will be liable for any capital duty, stamp duty and all other stamp, issue, securities, transfer, registration, documentary or other duties or taxes (including any interest, fines or penalties relating thereto) payable outside the UK by them or any other person on the acquisition by them of any Placing Shares or the agreement by them to acquire any Placing Shares.

References to time in this Announcement are to London time, unless otherwise stated. All times and dates in this Announcement may be subject to amendment. Arden shall notify the Placees and any person acting on behalf of the Placees of any such changes.

Each Placee, and any person acting on behalf of the Placee, acknowledges that Arden does not owe any fiduciary or other duties to any Placee in respect of any representations, warranties, undertakings, acknowledgements, agreements or indemnities in the Placing Agreement.

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of the Placee acknowledges and agrees that the Joint Brokers or any Affiliate of the Joint Brokers may, at their absolute discretion, agree to become a Placee in respect of some or all of the Placing Shares.

The rights and remedies of the Joint Brokers, the Nominated Adviser and the Company under these terms and conditions are in addition to any rights and remedies which would otherwise be available to each of them and the exercise or partial exercise or partial exercise of one will not prevent the exercise of others.

Each Placee may be asked to disclose in writing or orally to Arden and, if so, undertakes to provide:

1. if he is an individual, his nationality; 

2. if he is a discretionary fund manager, the jurisdiction in which the funds are managed or owned; and

3. such other "know your client" information as Arden may reasonably request.
