the proposed scheme of arrangement between NBC and NBC Shareholders under section

wholly owned subsidiaries, will acquire the entire issued ordinary share capital of NBC (other
than treasury shares held by subsidiaries of NBC and shares already held by Blackstar in
NBC) (“Scheme").

NBC Shareholders are further referred to the joint announcement by NBC and Blackstar
published on SENS on 26 April 2013, advising that at the general meeting of NBC
Shareholders held on the same date, all of the resolutions required to implement the Scheme
were passed by the requisite majorities of NBC Shareholders present and represented by
proxy.

NBC Shareholders are referred to the conditions precedent to the Scheme as detailed in the
Circular (“Conditions Precedent”), and are advised that all Conditions Precedent have now
been fulfilled and that the Scheme has accordingly now become unconditional.

It is anticipated that the Scheme will be implemented on 3 June 2013. NBC Shareholders are
referred to the section entitled “Important dates and times in relation to the Scheme”, in the
Circular and to the timetable set out in the joint SENS announcement by NBC and Blackstar
on 28 March 2013, which set out the remaining important dates and times relating to the
