With effect from Admission, the figure of 256,428,061 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, securities of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. The new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares in issue.
