Important notice

Disclaimer

The information in this announcement is for background purposes only and does not purport to be full or complete. No reliance may be placed for any purpose on the information contained in this announcement or its accuracy or completeness.

This announcement is an advertisement and not a prospectus and investors should not purchase any shares referred to in this announcement except on the basis of information in the Prospectus.

This announcement has been issued by and is the sole responsibility of the Company.

The material in this announcement is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer of securities for sale or a solicitation of any offer to buy securities in the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the Republic of South Africa or any other jurisdiction in which such an offer or solicitation is unlawful. The securities referred to herein have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or with any securities regulatory authority of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States, and may not be offered or sold within the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States. No public offering of securities will be made in the United States. The securities have not been approved or disapproved by the United States Securities Exchange Commission, the securities commission of any state of the United States, or any other regulatory authority of the United States.

In relation to each Member State of the EEA and the UK (each a "Relevant State"), no New Ordinary Shares have been offered or will be offered pursuant to the Issue to the public in that Relevant State prior to the publication of a prospectus in relation to the New Ordinary Shares which has been approved by the competent authority in that Relevant State, or, where appropriate, approved in another Relevant State and notified to the competent authority in that Relevant State, all in accordance with the Prospectus Regulation, except that it may make an offer to the public in that Relevant State of any New Ordinary Shares any time under the following exemptions under the Prospectus Regulation:

   --    to any legal entity which is a "qualified investor" as defined in the Prospectus Regulation; 

-- to fewer than 150 natural or legal persons (other than Qualified Investors as defined in the Prospectus Regulation); or

-- in any other circumstances falling within Article 1(4) of the Prospectus Regulation, provided that no such offer of New Ordinary Shares shall result in a requirement for the publication of a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Regulation or supplemental prospectus pursuant to Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation.

For the purposes of this provision, the expression an "offer to the public" in relation to any offer of New Ordinary Shares in any Relevant State means a communication in any form and by any means of sufficient information on the terms of the offer and any New Ordinary Shares to be offered so as to enable an investor to decide to purchase or subscribe for the New Ordinary Shares.

Any purchase of Ordinary Shares in the proposed Issue should be made solely on the basis of the information contained in the final Prospectus to be issued by the Company in connection with the Issue and Admission. No reliance may or should be placed by any person for any purposes whatsoever on the information contained in this announcement or on its completeness, accuracy or fairness. The information contained in this announcement is given at the date of its publication (unless otherwise marked) and is subject to updating, revision and amendment when the definitive Prospectus is published. In particular, the proposals referred to herein are tentative and are subject to verification, material updating, revision and amendment.

The timetable for the Issue, including the date of Admission, may be influenced by a range of circumstances such as market conditions. There is no guarantee that the Issue and the Admission will occur and you should not base your financial decisions on the Company's intentions in relation to the Issue and Admission at this stage. Acquiring Ordinary Shares to which this announcement relates may expose an investor to a significant risk of losing all of the amount invested. Persons considering making such an investment should consult an authorised person specialising in advising on such investments. This announcement does not constitute a recommendation concerning the Issue. The value of Ordinary Shares can decrease as well as increase. Potential investors should consult a professional advisor as to the suitability of the Issue for the person concerned. Past performance or information in this announcement or any of the documents relating to the Issue cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance.

Each of G10 and Peel Hunt is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA and is acting exclusively for the Company and no-one else in connection with the Issue and Admission. They will not regard any other person as their respective clients in relation to the Issue and Admission and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to their respective clients, nor for providing advice in relation to the Issue and Admission, the contents of this announcement or any transaction, arrangement or other matter referred to herein.

In connection with the Issue and Admission, Peel Hunt and any of its respective affiliates, acting as investors for their own accounts, may purchase Ordinary Shares and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such Ordinary Shares and other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Issue and the Admission or otherwise. Accordingly, references in the Prospectus, once published, to the Ordinary 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 Peel Hunt and any of their affiliates acting as investors for their own accounts. Peel Hunt does not 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) MiFID II; (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the New Ordinary Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the New Ordinary 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, it should be noted that: (i) the price of the New Ordinary Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; (ii) New Ordinary Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and (iii) an investment in New Ordinary 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 Issue. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Peel Hunt 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 New Ordinary Shares.

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