Dear Shareholder


The Board of the Company has announced a proposal to amend the Company’s articles of association (the “Articles”) to enable a simplification of its share structure (as more fully set out in the circular published by the Company) (the “Simplification”). A General Meeting has been scheduled for December 10, 2021 at which a resolution to amend the Articles, as set out in the Notice of Meeting, will be tabled.

The purpose of this broadcast is to advise shareholders that a circular containing (i) details of the Simplification and (ii) the Notice of General Meeting to approve the necessary changes to the Articles (together with a copy of the proposed amendments to the Articles) is available for viewing at This broadcast is not a summary of the proposals to be considered at the General Meeting and should not be a substitute for reading the Notice of Meeting and the circular. The Notice of General Meeting will be available until, at least, the end of the General Meeting, and the proposed amendments to the Articles will be kept available on the Company’s website for at least the period required by applicable laws and regulations.

Shareholders will be able to join and participate in the General Meeting in person (to the extent this remains possible in accordance with government guidance, which may change after the publication of this form) or by attending and participating in the webcast (“virtually attending”). Given ongoing uncertainty in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic, and bearing in mind the broader public health considerations and for the safety of others, any shareholders wishing to attend the General Meeting in person must present a Covid-19 certificate via the CoronaCheck app or equivalent for other jurisdictions, and comply with any other Covid-19 measures the venue or the Company may impose. Any shareholder who fails to present such a certificate will not be admitted to the General Meeting and will instead be directed to participate in the General Meeting electronically. All references to attendance herein mean both virtual and physical attendance.

This webcast is not interactive, and it is not possible to vote or ask questions remotely. Shareholders should note that accessing any such webcast for viewing only will be for information only. Unlike virtually attending and participating, those simply watching the webcast will not be regarded as formally present at the meeting nor will arrangements be made for them to vote, submit questions by text or speak at the meeting via any such webcast.

The webcast may include the question and answer sessions with Shareholders present at the General Meeting, as well as background shots of those present in the auditorium
