in the Tender Offer Memorandum or, as the case may be, the Rights Issue Prospectus, and any
supplementary prospectus in relation thereto. No money, securities or other consideration is being
solicited and, if sent in response to the information herein, will not be accepted.

The distribution of this announcement may be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions and persons
