Participation in the Offers by Non-Institutional Investors

Any Non-Institutional Investor (as defined below) that has not validly tendered its Securities but who wishes to participate in the Offers must, in order to participate in, and be eligible to receive the relevant Purchase Price pursuant to, the Offers, validly tender its Securities by delivering, or arranging to have delivered on its behalf, a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the Registrar or, in the case of 2026 PIBS Receipts, by the Tender Agent by 4.00 p.m. (London time) on 24 September 2013 (the Non-Institutional-only Expiration Deadline), in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum.

A Non-Institutional Investor is a Holder who holds (or owns on a beneficial basis) no more than £100,000 in aggregate principal amount outstanding of the Securities of each relevant Series. 

A Tender Instruction that is received after the General Expiration Deadline but by the Non-Institutional-only Expiration Deadline will be invalid and will not be accepted, unless the relevant Holder (i) is a Non-Institutional Investor and (ii) confirms in the relevant Tender Instruction (in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum) that it is a Non-Institutional Investor.

Since the Society has decided to accept all valid tenders of Securities received by the General Expiration Deadline, the Society will also accept all valid tenders of Securities received after the General Expiration Deadline but by the Non-Institutional-only Expiration Deadline.

If the Offers are not extended, re-opened or terminated by the Society, the Society will, in respect of valid tenders of Securities received after the General Expiration Deadline but by the Non-Institutional-only Expiration Deadline, announce as soon as reasonably practicable on 25 September 2013 the aggregate principal amount of each Series of Securities accepted for purchase and the amount of the Accrued Interest in respect of each Series of Securities accepted for purchase.

The expected settlement date for valid tenders of Securities received from Non-Institutional Investors after the General Expiration Deadline but by the Non-Institutional-only Expiration Deadline is 4 October 2013 (the Non-Institutional-only Settlement Date).
