Notes:

(1) The dates and times given are indicative only, are based on current expectations and may be subject to further change . References to times are to London time, unless otherwise stated. If any of the times and/or dates above change further, the revised times and/or dates will be announced via a Regulatory Information Service.

(2) The "Scheme Effective Time" of the Scheme is the date and time at which the Scheme becomes effective pursuant to its terms and will be on delivery of the Scheme Court Order to the Registrar of Companies in the UK. The Scheme Court Order is expected to be delivered to the Registrar of Companies on the date on which the Court makes the Scheme Court Order such that, following the Scheme Record Time, the Scheme will become Effective. The events which are stated as occurring on subsequent dates, including the crediting of CREST accounts, are conditional on the Scheme Effective Time and operate by reference to this time.

(3) This is the latest date by which the Scheme may become Effective. However, the Long Stop Date may be extended to such later date as Bidco and Harwood may, with the consent of the Panel, agree and, if required, the Court may allow.
