No action has been taken or will be taken in any jurisdiction by the Offeror that would permit an offering of the Shares, or the possession, circulation or distribution of the Offer Document or any other material relating to the Offeror or the Shares, in any country or jurisdiction where action for that purpose is required.
Accordingly, no Shares may be offered either directly or indirectly, and neither the Offer Document nor any other offering material or advertisements in connection with the Shares may be distributed or published, in or from any country or jurisdiction except in compliance with any applicable rules and regulations of any such country or jurisdiction.
In relation to each EEA state which has implemented Directive 2003/71/EC (as amended, including by Directive 2010/73/EU), and any relevant implementing measure in each EEA state (the ''Prospectus Directive'', and such EEA state a "Relevant Member State"), no offer is being made and hence no Shares are offered pursuant to the Offer, except to legal entities which are (i) existing Bondholders; and (ii) qualified investors as defined in the Prospectus Directive.
Each person in a Relevant Member State who receives any communication in respect of, or who tenders any Bonds for exchange in the Offer will be deemed to have represented, warranted and agreed to the Offeror that it is a qualified investor within the meaning of the law in that Relevant Member State implementing Article 2(1)(e) of the Prospectus Directive.

Notwithstanding the above, a person who is not a qualified investor and who has notified the Offeror of such fact in writing may, with the prior written consent of the Offeror, be permitted to acquire Shares in the Offer.
The Offer is only being made to existing Bondholders in the United Kingdom who are 'qualified investors' within the meaning of section 86 of the Financial Services and Markets Acts 2000 or otherwise in circumstances which do not require publication by the Offeror of a prospectus pursuant to section 85(1) of the Financial Services and Markets Acts 2000.

No advertisement, invitation or document relating to the Shares has been or will be issued or in the possession of any person for the purposes of issue, whether in Hong Kong or elsewhere, which is directed at, or the contents of which are likely to be accessed or read by, the public in Hong Kong (except if permitted under the laws of Hong Kong) other than with respect to Shares which are or are intended to be issued or disposed of only to persons outside Hong Kong or only to 'professional investors' as defined in the Securities and Futures Ordinance and any rules made under the Securities and Futures Ordinance.
The Offer nor any offering of Shares thereunder has been approved or licensed by the United Arab Emirates Central Bank, the United Arab Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority, or any other relevant licensing authorities in the United Arab Emirates, and accordingly does not constitute a public offer of securities in the United Arab Emirates in accordance with the commercial companies law, Federal Law No. 2 of 2015 (as amended), Securities and Commodities Authority Resolution No. 3 R.M. of 2017 Regulating Promotions and Introductions or otherwise.
