Certain statements contained in this announcement may constitute "forward-looking" statements regarding the belief of current expectation of the Company and the Directors about the Company's financial condition, results of operations and business. Forward-looking statements are sometimes identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "could", "should", "will", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "plan", "seek", "continue", "target", "goal", "would" or the negative thereof, other variations or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy, plans, objectives, goals, future events or intentions. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Rather, they are based on current views and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the control of the Group and are difficult to predict, which may cause the actual results, performance, achievements or developments of the Group or the markets in which it operates to differ materially from any future results, performance, achievement or developments expressed or implied from these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance. A number of material factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. None of the Company, Jefferies or Davy undertakes any obligation to release publicly any revisions or updates to these forward-looking statements to reflect events, circumstances, unanticipated events, new information or otherwise occurring after the date of this announcement except as required by law or by any appropriate regulatory authority. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Group or individuals acting on behalf of the Group are expressly qualified in their entirety by this paragraph.

 

The New Ordinary Shares are only suitable for investors who understand the potential risk of capital loss and that there may be limited liquidity in the underlying investments of the Company and in the New Ordinary Shares, for whom an investment in the New Ordinary Shares is part of a diversified investment programme and who fully understand and are willing to assume the risks involved in such an investment programme. There is no guarantee that the Capital Raise will proceed and that Admission will occur and you should not base your financial decisions on the Company's intention in relation to the Admission and Capital Raise at this stage. Acquiring New Ordinary Shares to which this announcement relates may expose an investor to a significant risk of losing all of the amount invested. This announcement does not constitute a recommendation concerning the Capital Raise. The price and value of the New Ordinary Shares and any income from these may decrease as well as increase. Information in this announcement, past performance and any documents relating to the Capital Raise or Admission cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance.

 

Davy, which is regulated in Ireland by the Central Bank of Ireland, is acting exclusively for the Company and no one else in connection with the Capital Raise and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to their clients or for providing any advice in relation to the Capital Raise or any matter referred to herein.

In connection with the Capital Raise, each of Davy and Jefferies, or any of their respective affiliates, acting as investors for their own accounts, may subscribe for or purchase New Ordinary Shares and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such New Ordinary Shares and other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Capital Raise or otherwise.
