becomes, "interested" (directly or indirectly) in 1% or more of any class of
"relevant securities" of Talarius, all "dealings" in any "relevant securities"
of Talarius (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative
referenced to, any such "relevant securities") must be publicly disclosed by no
later than 3.30pm (London time) on the Business Day following the date of the
relevant transaction.  This requirement will continue until the Effective Date

persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal
or informal, to acquire an "interest" in "relevant securities" of Talarius, they
will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Takeover Code, all "dealings" in

their respective "associates", must be disclosed by no later than 12.00 noon

A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose "relevant
securities" "dealings" should be disclosed, and the number of such securities in
issue, can be found on the Takeover Panel's website at http://

"Interests in securities" arise, in summary, when a person has long economic
exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of
securities.  In particular, a person will be treated as having an "interest" by
virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in
respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.

Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Takeover Code, which can also be
found on the Panel's website.  If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you
are required to disclose a "dealing" under Rule 8, you should consult the Panel
on telephone number +44 (0)20 7638 0129; fax number +44 (0)20 7236 7013.
