Any failure to comply with the foregoing restrictions may constitute a violation of United States, Australian, Canadian or Japanese securities laws. The Offer and the publication or distribution of this announcement and other information in connection with the Offer and Admission in other jurisdictions may be restricted by law and persons into whose possession any document or other information referred to herein comes should inform themselves about, and 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 and the Offer is, and will be, only directed at persons in member states of the European Economic Area (the "EEA") who are qualified investors within the meaning of Article 2(1)(e) of the Prospectus Directive (Directive 2003/71/EC), and any amendments thereto, including the amending directive, Directive 2010/73/EU to the extent implemented in the relevant member state and any relevant implementing measure in each relevant member state ("Qualified Investors"). In addition, in the United Kingdom, this announcement and the Offer is and will be only directed at, and should only be relied upon by, Qualified Investors who are persons who have professional experience in matters relating to investments falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005, as amended (the "Order"), are persons who are high net worth entities falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order or are persons to whom it may otherwise be lawful to communicate it to (all such persons being referred to as "Relevant Persons"). Any investment or investment activity to which this announcement relates is and will be available only to Relevant Persons in the United Kingdom and Qualified Investors in any member state of the EEA other than the United Kingdom and will be engaged in only with such persons. Other persons should not rely or act upon this announcement or any of its contents.

This announcement does not constitute an offer or invitation for the sale, issuance or subscription for any Shares in any jurisdiction, nor does it purport to give legal, tax or financial advice. Nothing contained herein shall form the basis of or be relied upon in connection with, or act as an inducement to enter into, any investment activity. The information, statements and opinions contained in this announcement do not constitute a public offer under any applicable legislation or an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to purchase, any Shares in and are not for release, publication or distribution (directly or indirectly) in or into the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia or any other jurisdiction where such distribution or offer is unlawful.

This announcement does not constitute a recommendation concerning the Offer. The price and value of the Shares can decrease as well as increase. Potential investors should consult a professional advisor as to the suitability of the Offer for the person concerned. You should not base your financial decision on this announcement.

Neither the Company, the Selling Shareholders, Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited, Jefferies International Limited and Zeus Capital Ltd (together the "Banks") nor any of such persons' parent or subsidiary undertakings, or the subsidiary undertakings of any such parent undertakings, or any of such persons' respective partners, directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, advisers or agents is under an obligation to update, revise or keep current the information contained in this announcement and the information in this announcement is subject to change without notice.

Neither the Banks, the Company, the Group or the Selling Shareholders nor any of their respective parent or subsidiary undertakings, or the subsidiary undertakings of any such parent undertakings, or any of such persons' respective partners, directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, advisers or agents accepts any responsibility, obligation or liability whatsoever for, or makes any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to, and no reliance should be placed on, the fairness, truth, fullness, accuracy, completeness or correctness of, the information in this announcement or whether any information has been omitted from the announcement or as to any other information relating to the Company or the Group, 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 this announcement, its contents or otherwise arising in connection therewith.

Each of the Banks is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA. Each of the Banks is acting exclusively for the Company and for no one else in connection with the Offer and Admission. The Banks will not regard any other person as their respective clients and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to their respective clients nor for the giving of advice in relation to the Offer and Admission, the contents of this announcement or any transaction, matter or arrangement referred to herein.

In connection with the Offer, each of the Banks and any of their affiliates, acting as investors for their own accounts, may take up a portion of the Shares in the Offer as a principal position and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such Shares and other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Offer or otherwise. Accordingly, references in the Prospectus, once published, to the Shares being issued, offered, subscribed, acquired, placed or otherwise dealt in should be read as including any issue or offer to, or subscription, acquisition, placing or dealing by, the Banks and any of their affiliates acting in such capacity. In addition, the Banks and any of their affiliates may enter into financing arrangements (including swaps or contracts for differences) with investors in connection with which the Banks and any of their affiliates may from time to time acquire, hold or dispose of Shares. None of the Banks nor any of their respective 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.

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 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 Offer. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Banks 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.
