Additional information for US investors
The Offer relates to the shares of a company incorporated in England and Wales and is being made in accordance with the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers and under English company law. Accordingly, the Offer is subject to the disclosure requirements and practices applicable in the UK to takeover offers which differ from the disclosure requirements, style and format of US tender offer and proxy solicitation rules. If TVH determines to extend the offer into the US, the Transaction will be made in compliance with applicable US laws and regulations. Financial information on the Website has been or will have been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards that may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the US.
Neither the US Securities and Exchange Commission nor any securities commission of any state of the United States has approved the Transaction, passed upon the fairness of the Transaction or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of this document. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.
If the Offer is required to be made in the US, it will be done in compliance with the applicable tender offer rules under the US Exchange Act. In accordance with normal UK practice, TVH, Libra Bidco or its nominees, or its brokers (acting as agents), may from time to time make certain purchases of, or arrangements to purchase, Company shares outside of the US, other than pursuant to the Offer, at any time prior to completion of the Offer. If such purchases or arrangements to purchase were to be made, they would be made outside the US and would comply with applicable law, including the US Exchange Act. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. Any information about such purchases will be disclosed as required in the UK.
THE INFORMATION IN THE WEBSITE HAS BEEN PREPARED FOR THE PURPOSES OF COMPLYING WITH THE CITY CODE ON TAKEOVERS AND MERGERS AND ALL OTHER APPLICABLE RULES AND REGULATIONS. THE INFORMATION DISCLOSED MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS THAT WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN DISCLOSED IF THE INFORMATION HAD BEEN PREPARED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF ANY JURISDICTION OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED KINGDOM.
