Notice to US Investors
The Offer is being made to Target shareholders resident in the United States in reliance on, and compliance with, Regulation 14E and the related rules promulgated under the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “US Exchange Act”), subject to any exemptions or relief therefrom, as applicable, including as set forth in Rule 14d-1(d) of the US Exchange Act, and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of the Takeover Code, the Panel, the London Stock Exchange and the UK Financial Conduct Authority. The Offer is being made in the United States by the Consortium and no one else.
The Offer relates to the shares of a Guernsey incorporated company that is not registered under the US Exchange Act and is admitted to trading on AIM and is subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, format and style which are different from those in the United States including with respect to withdrawal rights, offer timetable and settlement procedures.
Financial information included in this area of the website has been or will be prepared in accordance with accounting standards applicable in Guernsey and the United Kingdom, and may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
The receipt of consideration by a US holder for the transfer of its Target shares pursuant to the Offer may be a taxable transaction for United States federal income tax purposes and under applicable United States federal, state and local, as well as non-US and other, tax laws. Each Target shareholder is urged to consult their independent professional adviser immediately regarding any acceptance of the Offer including, without limitation, the tax consequences of the Offer applicable to them, including under applicable United States federal, state and local, as well as non-US and other, tax laws.
It may be difficult for US holders to enforce their rights, effect service of process within the United States and/or enforce any claim and claims arising out of the US federal securities laws, since Target is incorporated under the laws of Guernsey, CPI is incorporated under the laws of Luxembourg and Aroundtown is incorporated under the laws of Luxembourg and the majority of the officers and directors of each of Target, CPI and Aroundtown are residents of countries other than the United States and most of their respective assets are outside the United States. It may not be possible to sue Target, CPI or Aroundtown, or any of their respective directors, officers or affiliates, in a non-US court for violations of US laws, including US securities laws. It may be difficult to compel Target, CPI and Aroundtown and their respective directors, officers and affiliates to subject themselves to the jurisdiction of a US court. There is doubt as to the enforceability in the United Kingdom and Guernsey of original actions, or of actions for enforcement of judgments of US courts, based on civil liability provisions of US federal securities laws and judgments of a US court.
Neither the SEC nor any US state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Offer, or passed upon the fairness of the Offer or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of the information contained on this microsite. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.
No offer to acquire securities or to exchange securities for other securities has been made, or will be made, directly or indirectly, in or into, or by the use of the mails of, or by any means or instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce or any facilities of a national securities exchange of, the United States or any other country in which such offer may not be made other than: (i) in accordance with the tender offer requirements under the US Exchange Act, or the securities laws of such other country, as the case may be; or (ii) pursuant to an available exemption from such requirements.
In accordance with normal UK practice, CPI and Aroundtown, their affiliates or their respective nominees (including Zakiono), or their respective brokers (acting as agents), may, from time to time, make certain purchases of, or arrangements to purchase, Target shares outside of the United States, other than pursuant to the Offer, until the date on which the Offer becomes effective, lapses or is otherwise withdrawn. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. Any information about such purchases will be disclosed, as required in the UK, will be reported to a Regulatory Information Service and will be available on the London Stock Exchange website at www.londonstockexchange.com. No purchases will be made other than pursuant to the Offer in the United States of America by or on behalf of CPI and Aroundtown, their affiliates or their respective nominees.
