It is expected that Admission will become effective and that unconditional dealings in these shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 19 April 2018.
Following Admission, as a result of this issue, the total number of ordinary shares in issue will be 173,500,000, and the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 173,500,000.
The above figure 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, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
