The first placing was conditional upon the passing of the ordinary resolution by shareholders at the EGM and the second placing and the open offer were conditional upon the passing of the ordinary resolution and the special resolution by shareholders at the EGM. Accordingly, those conditions have now been satisfied. The first placing, the second placing and the open offer remain conditional on certain other conditions. Subject to satisfaction of such conditions, it is expected that the first placed shares, the second placed shares and the open offer shares will be issued on 21 February 2013 and that admission of the first placed shares, the second placed shares and the open offer shares to the premium listing segment of the Official List of the Financial Services Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange plc's main market for listed securities will become effective, and that unconditional dealings therein will commence, on 21 February 2013.

 

In addition, subject to satisfaction of such conditions, the first placed shares, the second placed shares and open offer shares are expected to be credited to the CREST stock accounts of uncertificated holders only at 8:00 a.m. on 21 February 2013 and despatch of definitive share certificates for the open offer shares in certificated form to non-CREST shareholders only is expected to take place by 28 February 2013.
