12. Additional informationxvi:

In reference to Section 10, the shares detailed are managed by the named discretionary investment management entity within multiple portfolios on behalf of underlying clients, based on investment management agreements whereby the client has delegated the exercise of the voting power to the referenced investment manager.

This is a retrospective disclosure to reflect confirmation received from the Issuer that its Home Member State for the purposes of the Irish Transparency Rules is Ireland. Prior to this confirmation, the aggregate of Standard Life Aberdeen plc affiliated investment management entities with delegated voting rights on behalf of multiple managed portfolios had treated the Home Member State of UDG Healthcare plc as the United Kingdom and, as such, monitored the percentage of total voting rights held in accordance with the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules sourcebook. 

This disclosure reflects that the voting rights effectively held indirectly by the underlying intermediate holding company, Aberdeen Asset Management PLC, ("AAM PLC") increased above the 3% notifiable threshold due to trading on 15 September 2017. As at the date detailed in Section 5, Aberdeen Asset Management PLC effectively held the delegated voting rights to 3.03% of the shares in UDG Healthcare plc. Prior to this crossing AAM PLC effectively held 2.99% of the delegated voting rights.
