Each of the Company, Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS and their respective affiliates as defined under Rule 501(b) of Regulation D of the Securities Act ("affiliates"), expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update, review or revise any forward looking statement contained in this announcement whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, and the distribution of this announcement shall not be deemed to be any form of commitment on the part of the Company to proceed with the Offering or any transaction or arrangement referred to therein.

This announcement is an advertisement and does not constitute a prospectus within the meaning of the UK Prospectus Regulation and does not constitute an offer to acquire securities. Any purchase of any securities in the proposed Offering should be made solely on the basis of information contained in the Prospectus to be issued by the Company in connection with the Offering and Admission. The information in this announcement is subject to change. Before purchasing any securities in the Offering, persons viewing this announcement should ensure that they fully understand and accept the risks which will be set out in the Prospectus. No reliance may be placed for any purpose on the information contained in this announcement or its accuracy or completeness. This announcement shall not form the basis of or constitute any offer or invitation to sell or issue, or any solicitation of any offer to purchase any securities nor shall it (or any part of it) or the fact of its distribution, form the basis of, or be relied on in connection with, any contract therefor.

The date of Admission may be influenced by a variety of factors which include market conditions. The Company may decide not to go ahead with the Offering and there is therefore no guarantee that Admission will occur. You should not base your financial decision on this announcement or the Company's intentions in relation to Admission at this stage. Acquiring investments to which this announcement relates may expose an investor to a significant risk of losing all of the amount invested.

Persons considering making investments should consult an authorised person specialising in advising on such investments.

Potential investors should consult a professional advisor as to the suitability of a possible offer for the person concerned.

None of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS, or any of their 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, its subsidiaries or 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. Accordingly, each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS, and any of its and any of its or its affiliates' directors, officers, employees, advisers or agents expressly disclaims, to the fullest extent possible, any and all liability whatsoever for any loss howsoever arising from, or in reliance upon, the whole or any part of the contents of this announcement, whether in tort, contract or otherwise which they might otherwise have in respect of this announcement or its contents or otherwise arising in connection therewith.

Each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS are acting exclusively for the Company, the Sponsor Entity and the Overfunding Sponsor Entity and no-one else in connection with the proposed Offering. They will not regard any other person as their respective clients in relation to the proposed Offering and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company, the Sponsor Entity and the Overfunding Sponsor Entity for providing the protections afforded to their respective clients, nor for providing advice in relation to the proposed Offering, the contents of this announcement or any transaction, arrangement or other matter referred to herein. Each of Barclays and HSBC is authorised in the United Kingdom by the Prudential Regulation Authority ("PRA") and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA and the PRA. Each of Numis and TGS is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA.

In connection with the Offering, each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS and any of their affiliates may take up a portion of the Ordinary Shares and Warrants as a principal position and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such Ordinary Shares and/or Warrants and other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Offering or otherwise. Accordingly, references in the Prospectus, once published, to the Ordinary Shares and/or Warrants 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 each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS and any of their affiliates acting in such capacity. In addition, each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS and any of their affiliates may enter into financing arrangements (including swaps, warrants or contracts for differences) with investors in connection with which each of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS and any of their affiliates may from time to time acquire, hold or dispose of Ordinary Shares and/or Warrants. None of Barclays, HSBC, Numis and TGS, 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.

Information to Distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements of Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants subject of the Offering have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that: (a) the target market is eligible counterparties, as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook ("COBS"), and professional clients, as defined in COBS; and (b) all channels for distribution to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate (the "UK Target Market Assessment").

Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants (a "Distributor") should take into consideration the manufacturers' UK Target Market Assessment; however, a distributor subject to the UK Product Governance Requirements is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants (by either adopting or refining the manufacturers' UK Target Market Assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels.

Notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Ordinary Shares and the Warrants 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 UK Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Offering.

For the avoidance of doubt, the UK Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Chapters 9A or 10A of COBS; 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 Ordinary Shares and the Warrants.

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

Prohibition of sales to UK, EEA and Swiss Retail Investors

The Ordinary Shares and the Warrants are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the United Kingdom, EEA or in Switzerland, in or as part of the Offering. For these purposes, (A) in the United Kingdom a "retail investor" means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of domestic law in the UK by virtue of the EUWA; or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended, the "FSMA") and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended, the "Insurance Distribution Directive"), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law in the UK by virtue of the EUWA; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as it forms part of domestic law in the UK by virtue of the EUWA; (B) in the EEA, a "retail investor" means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail

client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, "MiFID II"); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the Insurance Distribution Directive, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation; and (C) in Switzerland, a "retail investor" means a person who is not a professional client as defined in Article 4 Paragraph 3 of the Swiss Federal Act on Financial Services (the "FinSA"). Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the "PRIIPs Regulation"), or Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014, as amended, as it forms part of domestic law in the UK by virtue of the EUWA (the "UK PRIIPs Regulation") or the FinSA for offering or selling the Ordinary Shares or the Warrants or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the UK, EEA or in Switzerland has been prepared and, therefore, offering or selling the Ordinary Shares or the Warrants or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the UK, EEA or in Switzerland may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation, the PRIIPs Regulation or the FinSA, as applicable.
