Nature of the transaction

 

As described on page 238 of the prospectus issued by the Company on 6 July 2010, on 21 June 2010 Tim Steiner entered into seven forward sale agreements, each in connection with 2,000,000 Shares (the "Forward Sale Agreements"), for the transfer of 14,000,000 Shares in aggregate held in his name to his father, Nicolas Steiner, in consideration of £100 and 97 percent of the market value of the Shares on completion (which amount may be paid over three years).

As previously reported on 17 May 2013, 13 May 2016, and 2 June 2019, the parties agreed to delay the date of completion. As a result, the first Forward Sale Agreement was extended to, and subsequently completed on, 30 June 2020. The second Forward Sale Agreement was extended to, and subsequently completed on, 30 June 2021. Each of the remaining five Forward Sale Agreements were extended to 30 June 2022 or such other date as the parties may agree.

By agreement dated 20 May 2022, Tim Steiner and Nicolas Steiner have agreed to extend the completion date of the remaining Forward Sale Agreements as follows:

The third Forward Sale Agreement is extended to 24 July 2023.

The fourth Forward Sale Agreement is extended to 24 July 2024.

The remaining three Forward Sale Agreements are extended to 24 July 2025.

All other terms of the Forward Sale Agreements remain unaltered.

There is no additional consideration payable in respect of the agreements to delay completion.

Tim Steiner retains a beneficial interest in the transferring Shares until completion.
