The Directors recognise the importance of sound corporate governance and intend that the Group will comply with the provisions of the QCA Guidelines.
The Takeover Code does not currently apply to the Company and is not expected to apply to the Company following Admission on the basis that the Company’s place of central management and control is not expected to be in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. This position may change in the event that the Panel reviews the application of the Takeover Code to AIM-traded companies which have their registered office in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, even if its business is managed and controlled elsewhere. For this reason the shareholders will not be offered any protections under the Takeover Code. It is emphasised that, although the Ordinary Shares will trade on AIM, the Company will not be subject to takeover regulation in the UK. However, certain protections have been incorporated into the Articles which, to an extent, mirror provisions of the Takeover Code (the “Relevant Code Provisions”) to the extent that it is possible to do so. The Articles provide that if an acquisition of Ordinary Shares were to increase the aggregate holding of the acquirer and its concert parties to shares carrying 30 per cent. or more of the voting rights in the Company, the acquirer and, depending on the circumstances, its concert parties, would be required (except with the agreement of the Company in general meeting by ordinary resolution of independent shareholders) to make a cash offer for the outstanding shares in the Company at a price not less than the highest price paid for the Ordinary Shares by the acquirer or its concert parties during the previous 12 months. This requirement would also be triggered by any acquisition of shares by a person holding (together with its concert parties) shares carrying between 30 and 50 per cent. of the voting rights in the Company if the effect of such acquisition were to increase the person’s percentage of voting rights. The main difference between these provisions and the Relevant Code Provisions is that the Takeover Panel does not have any jurisdiction to exercise its discretion in waiving any of the provisions of the Takeover Code.
