Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the same meaning ascribed to them in the latest version of the prospectus of the Company (the “Prospectus”) unless the context otherwise requires.

De-listing from the Cboe UK (CXE)

Due to low demand and volumes traded on the Cboe UK (CXE), in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Articles and Prospectus of the Company, the Board of Directors has resolved to proceed with the de-listing, with effect from 14 December 2021 (the “De-listing Date”), of all outstanding Shares of the De-listing Share Classes that are listed on the Cboe UK (CXE) (the “De-listing”).

For the avoidance of doubt, the De-listing Share Classes will not be terminated or compulsorily redeemed.

The De-listing Share Classes will be de-listed from theCboe UK (CXE) on the De-listing Date. Therefore, requests for redemption or subscription for Shares in the De-listing Share Classes on this stock exchange may only be made until close of business on 13 December 2021 (the “Last Trading Date”).

After the De-listing Date, the De-listing Share Classes will remain listed on one or more other stock exchanges. Shareholders should refer to the table appended to this notice at Annex 1 for a selection of the stock exchanges on which the De-listing Share Classes will remain listed.

In order for you to sell your Shares after the De-listing Date, you would need to instruct your authorised intermediary bank or stockbroker to realign your Shares to one of those stock exchanges. Shareholders should note that your authorised intermediary bank or stockbroker may impose administration charges to realign Shares to other stock exchanges.

Orders to sell Shares through a stock exchange can be placed via an authorised intermediary or stockbroker. Shareholders should note that orders in the secondary market may incur costs over which the Company has no control. Shareholders should consult with their authorised intermediary or stockbroker in relation to these costs.
