Further Information

Rathlin Subscription Agreement

 

The Company is pleased to announced that it has entered into a binding subscription agreement with Rathlin (the "Rathlin Subscription Agreement"), conditional on completion of the Placing, to make a cash investment of £16 million in Rathlin, at a valuation of £2.75 per ordinary share in the capital of Rathlin ("Rathlin Share").

 

Proposed Equity Swap and Lock In Agreement

The Company has verbally agreed, with certain shareholders of Rathlin, to complete a swap of their Rathlin Shares for new Ordinary Shares at the Placing Price (the "Swap Shares") at the same value at which Reabold is subscribing for new Rathlin Shares pursuant to the Rathlin Subscription Agreement, up to a maximum value of £7 million (the "Proposed Equity Swap").  

Discussions and terms are at an advanced stage and the Company is targeting finalising the Proposed Equity Swap ahead of a General Meeting to be convened for 28 October 2019 (further details of which are set out below), with the intention of concluding the Proposed Equity Swap, with admission of the Swap Shares to trading on AIM expected to occur concurrently with the admission of the Placing Shares, which is anticipated for the 29 October 2019.  

The Company requires that as a condition to completing the Proposed Equity Swap and under the terms of the offer, that the Swap Shares be subject to a three month lock-up period and a further three month orderly market agreement.

Further announcements regarding the Proposed Equity Swap, including the level of uptake by Rathlin shareholders, will be made as and when appropriate.

Bookbuild

The Placing will be conducted by Stifel on behalf of the Company in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in Appendix 1 to this announcement. The Bookbuild will open with immediate effect following this announcement. The Placing Shares, when issued, will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares.

It is expected that the Bookbuild will close before 8 a.m. on 9 October 2019. However, the timing of the closing of the Bookbuild and allocations are at the absolute discretion of Stifel and the Company. Details of the results of the Placing will be announced as soon as practicable after the close of the Bookbuild. The Placing is not being underwritten.

This announcement should be read in its entirety. Investors' attention is drawn to the detailed terms and conditions of the Placing described in Appendix 1 and the principal risks and uncertainties described in Appendix 2 (each of which form part of this announcement). By choosing to participate in the Placing and by making an oral and legally binding offer to acquire Placing Shares, investors will be deemed to have read and understood this announcement in its entirety (including the Appendices) and to be making such offer on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Placing contained here, and to be providing the representations, warranties and acknowledgements contained in Appendix 1.

General Meeting

In accordance with the Company's articles of association, shareholder approval is required for the Directors to issue the Placing Shares. A general meeting is expected to be held at the offices of Hill Dickinson LLP, The Broadgate Tower, 20 Primrose Street, London, EC2A 2EW, for the purpose of passing certain resolutions ("Resolutions"), including to authorise the proposed Placing (the "General Meeting").

It is currently anticipated that the General Meeting will be held on or around 28 October 2019. A circular (the "Circular"), containing a notice convening the General Meeting, is expected to be despatched to shareholders of the Company ("Shareholders") on or about 10 October 2019, outlining terms of the Placing, the Resolutions and recommending all Shareholders to vote in favour of all the Resolutions. Thereafter, the Circular will be available on the Company's website at www.reabold.com.

The Placing, is conditional, inter alia, on the Resolutions being passed by the Shareholders at the General Meeting (or an adjournment thereof) and, in respect of the Placing, the Placing Agreement (as defined in Appendix 1 to this announcement) otherwise becoming unconditional in all respects (save for Admission) and not having been terminated in accordance with its terms prior to Admission.

Information to Distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Placing Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Placees should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing.  Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Stifel will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to Placing Shares.

Terms of the Placing

If a person chooses to participate in the Placing by making or accepting an offer to acquire Placing Shares (each such person whose participation is accepted by the Bookrunner in accordance with this appendix being hereinafter referred to as a "Placee" and together, as the "Placees") it will be deemed to represent and warrant that it has read and understood this announcement and this appendix in its entirety and to be making or accepting such offer on the terms and conditions, and to be providing the representations, warranties, acknowledgements, agreements and undertakings, contained in this appendix.

The Placing Shares referred to in this announcement have not been, and will not be, registered under the US Securities Act or under the securities legislation of any state of the United States.  Furthermore, the Placing Shares have not been recommended by any US federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority, nor have any of the foregoing authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the Placing or confirmed the accuracy or determined the adequacy of this announcement.  Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.  This appendix is not an offer of securities for sale in the United States, and the Placing Shares may not be offered or sold in the United States absent the registration of the Placing Shares under the US Securities Act, or an exemption therefrom, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the US Securities Act.  There will be no public offer of the Placing Shares in the United States.

The Placing Shares will not be lodged with or registered by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.  The relevant clearances have not been, and will not be obtained from the Ministry of Finance of Japan and no circular in relation to the Placing Shares has been or will be lodged with or registered by the Ministry of Finance of Japan.  The relevant clearances have not been, and will not be, obtained for the South Africa reserve bank or any other applicable body in the Republic of South Africa in relation to the placing shares.  The placing shares have not been, nor will they be, registered under or offered in compliance with the securities laws of any state, province or territory of Australia, Canada, Japan or the Republic of South Africa.  Accordingly, the placing shares may not (unless an exemption under the relevant securities laws is applicable) be offered, sold, resold or delivered, directly or indirectly, in or into or from Australia, Canada, Japan, the Republic of South Africa, the United States or any other jurisdiction outside the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. 

This announcement and appendix do not constitute an offer to sell or issue or a solicitation of an offer to buy or subscribe for Placing Shares in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is or may be unlawful.  The distribution of this announcement and the Placing and issue of the Placing Shares in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law.  No action has been taken by the Company or the Bookrunner that would permit an offering of such securities or possession or distribution of this announcement or any other offering or publicity material relating to such securities in any jurisdiction where action for that purposes is required.  Persons to whose attention this announcement has been drawn are required by the Company and the Bookrunner to inform themselves about and to observe any such restrictions.

The price of securities and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount on disposal of the securities.

Any indication in this announcement of the price at which Ordinary Shares have been bought or sold in the past cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance.  No statement in this announcement is intended to be a profit forecast and no statement in this announcement should be interpreted to mean that earnings per share of the Company for the current or future financial years would necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings per share of the Company.

The Placing Shares will not be admitted to trading on any stock exchange other than the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange.

Persons (including, without limitation, nominees and trustee) who have a contractual or other legal obligation to forward a copy of this announcement should seek appropriate advice before taking any action.

Each Placee should consult with its own advisers as to legal, tax, business and related aspects of a purchase of Placing Shares.

1.

The Bookrunner will arrange the Placing as agent for and on behalf of the Company. Participation will only be available to persons invited to participate by the Bookrunner.  The Bookrunner will, following consultation with the Company, determine in their absolute discretion the extent of each Placee's participation in the Placing, which will not necessarily be the same for each Placee.

2.

The price payable per new Ordinary Share shall be the Placing Price.

3.

A Placee's commitment to subscribe for a fixed number of Placing Shares will be agreed with and confirmed to it orally by the Bookrunner and a contract note (a "Contract Note") will be despatched as soon as possible thereafter.  The oral confirmation to the Placee by the Bookrunner constitutes an irrevocable, legally binding contractual commitment to the Bookrunner (as agent for the Company) to subscribe for the number of Placing Shares allocated to it on the terms set out in this appendix.

4.

Commissions will not be paid to Placees or by Placees in connection with the Placing.

5.

The Bookrunner has the right, inter alia, to terminate the agreement entered into between the Bookrunner and the Company in connection with the Placing (the "Placing Agreement") at any time prior to Admission if, inter alia, (i) there has been any material breach of the warranties, undertakings or other obligations on the part of the Company contained in the Placing Agreement; or (ii) there occurs an event of force majeure.  If the Placing Agreement is terminated prior to Admission, the Placing will lapse and the rights and obligations of the Placees hereunder shall cease and determine at such time and no claim can be made by any Placee in respect thereof.  In such event, all monies (if any) paid by the Placees to the Bookrunner at such time shall be returned to the Placees at their sole risk without any obligation on the part of the Company or the Bookrunner or any of their respective affiliates to account to the Placees for any interest earned on such funds.  The Placees acknowledge and agree that the Company and the Bookrunner may, at their sole discretion, exercise their contractual rights to waive or to extend the time and/or date for fulfilment of any of the conditions in the Placing Agreement.  Any such extension or waiver will not affect Placees' commitments.

6.

The Bookrunner is acting exclusively for the Company and no one else in connection with the matters referred to in this announcement and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to the clients of the Bookrunner or for providing advice in relation to the matters described in this announcement.  The Bookrunner shall not have any liability to any Placee nor shall they owe any Placee fiduciary duties in respect of any claim they may have under the Placing Agreement (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) in respect of the exercise of their contractual rights to waive or to extend the time and/or date for the satisfaction of any condition in the Placing Agreement or in respect of termination of the Placing Agreement or in respect of the Placing generally.

7.

Each Placee acknowledges to, and agrees with, the Bookrunner for itself and as agent for the Company, that except in relation to the information in this announcement, it has relied on its own investigation of the business, financial or other position of the Company in deciding to participate in the Placing.

8.

Settlement of transactions in the Placing Shares following Admission will take place within CREST, subject to certain exceptions.  The Bookrunner reserves the right to require settlement for and delivery of the Placing Shares to the Placees in such other means that it deems necessary if delivery or settlement is not possible within CREST within the timetable set out in this announcement or would not be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the jurisdictions of such Placees.

9.

It is expected that settlement of the Placing will occur on 29 October 2019, on which date each Placee must settle the full amount owed by it in respect of the Placing Shares allocated to it.  The Bookrunner may (after consultation with the Company) specify a later settlement date (or dates) at its absolute discretion.  Payment must be made in cleared funds.  The payment instructions for settlement in CREST and settlement outside of CREST will be notified to each Placee by the Bookrunner.  The trade date of the Placing Shares is 9 October 2019.  Interest is chargeable daily on payments to the extent that value is received after the due date at the rate per annum of 2 percentage points above the Barclays Bank plc base rate.  If a Placee does not comply with these obligations, the Bookrunner may sell the Placing Shares allocated to such Placee (as agent for such Placee) and retain from the proceeds, for its own account, an amount equal to the Placing Price plus any interest due.  The relevant Placee will, however, remain liable, inter alia, for any shortfall below the Placing Price and it may be required to bear any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (together with any interest or penalties) which may arise upon the sale of its Placing Shares on its behalf.  Time shall be of the essence as regards the obligations of Placees to settle payment for the Placing Shares and to comply with their other obligations under this appendix.

10.

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent of a Placee, the relevant Placee should ensure that its Contract Note is copied and delivered immediately to the relevant person within that organisation.  Insofar as Placing Shares are to be registered in the name of a Placee or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom the Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares will, subject as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to UK stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax.  Placees should match the CREST details as soon as possible or if using a settlement agent they should instruct their agent to do so.  Failure to do so could result in a CREST Settlement fine.

APPENDIX 2 - CERTAIN RISKS

Any investment in the Company is subject to a number of risks. Accordingly, prospective investors should carefully consider the risks set out below as well as the other information contained in this announcement and any other publicly available information about the Company before making a decision whether to invest in the Company. The risks described below are not the only risks that the Company faces. Additional risks and uncertainties that the Directors are not aware of or that the Directors currently believe are immaterial may also impair the Company's operations. Any of these risks may have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. In that case, the price of the Ordinary Shares could decline and investors may lose all or part of their investment. Prospective investors should consider carefully whether an investment in the Company is suitable for them in light of the information in this document and their personal circumstances.

Before making an investment, prospective investors are strongly advised to consult an investment adviser authorised under FSMA who specialises in investments of this kind. A prospective investor should consider carefully whether an investment in the Company is suitable in the light of his or her personal circumstances, the financial resources available to him or her and his or her ability to bear any loss which might result from such investment.

The following factors do not purport to be a complete list or explanation of all the risks involved in investing in the Company. In particular, the Company's performance may be affected by changes in the market and/or economic conditions and in legal, regulatory and tax requirements.

1.    RISKS RELATING TO THE COMPANY'S BUSINESS

 

1.1. The Company may not be able to develop commercially its Reserves and its Contingent and Prospective Resources

If the Company is not successful in achieving commercial production from its assets, or fails to meet its targeted development and production timelines, the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects would be materially adversely affected.

1.2. The Company's operation and success depends on its ability to explore, appraise, develop and commercially produce oil and gas Reserves and Resources that are economically recoverable

The Company's long-term commercial success depends on its ability to explore, appraise, develop and commercially produce oil and gas Reserves and Resources. Future increases in the Company's Resources or conversion of any of them into Reserves will depend not only on its ability to explore, appraise and develop its existing assets but also on its ability to select and acquire suitable additional assets.

There are many reasons why the Company may not be able to find or acquire oil and gas Reserves or Resources or develop them for commercially viable production. For example, the Company may be unable to negotiate commercially reasonable terms for its acquisition, appraisal, development or production activities. Factors such as adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, equipment or services shortages, procurement delays or difficulties arising from the political, environmental and other conditions in the areas where the Reserves or Resources are located or through which the Company's products are transported may increase costs and make it uneconomical to develop potential Reserves or Resources. There is no assurance that the Company will discover, acquire, develop or produce commercial quantities of hydrocarbons.

In addition, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to develop its Reserves and Resources for commercial viable production. Such challenges and the failure to develop its Reserves and Resources for commercial viable production could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.

1.3. The Company is an AIM Investment Company and as such does not have direct control over the underlying oil and gas assets in which it has an interest

 

1.4. The proposed agreement with certain shareholders of Rathlin, to complete a swap of their Rathlin shares for Reabold shares is still subject to negotiation

The Company has verbally agreed, with certain shareholders of Rathlin, to complete a swap (the "Rathlin Swap") of their Rathlin shares for Swap Shares. Discussions and terms are at an advanced stage and the Company is targeting finalising the swap ahead of the Reabold General Meeting on 28 October 2019, with the intention of concluding the swap and completing Admission of the Swap Shares concurrently with the Admission of the Placing Shares, which is anticipated for the 29 October 2019. However, there can be no certainty that an agreement will be entered into on commercially advantageous terms, or at all.

2.    RISKS RELATED TO THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

 

2.1. A material decline in oil and gas prices may adversely affect the Company's results of operations and financial condition, and prices may not return to levels seen in recent years

Both oil and gas prices can be volatile and subject to fluctuation in response to relatively minor changes in the supply of, and demand for, oil and gas, market uncertainty and a variety of additional factors that are beyond the control of the Company. Historically and indeed recently, oil and gas prices have fluctuated widely for many reasons, including global and regional supply and demand; political, economic and military developments, and labour unrest, in oil and gas producing regions, particularly the Middle East; domestic and foreign governmental regulations and actions; global and regional economic conditions and weather conditions and natural disasters. It is impossible to predict accurately future oil and gas price movements. Accordingly, oil and gas prices may not remain at their current levels. Although the Company is not yet an active producer of oil and gas, declines in oil and gas prices may adversely affect market sentiment and as a consequence the market price of the Ordinary Shares and furthermore affect the Company's cash flow, liquidity and profitability, and limit the amount of oil and gas that the Company could potentially market in the future.

Although oil and gas prices have fallen significantly since mid-2014, they may not return to levels previously seen within any foreseeable timeframe.

The Company can give no assurance that future prices for oil and gas will be sufficient to generate an economic return. Any further decline in such prices could result in reduced cash flows from the Company's assets and a reduction in the valuation of the Company's assets, which in turn may result in a reduction in the debt available to the Company. This would have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, business, prospects and results of operations.

2.2. Estimation of Reserves, Resources and production profiles is not exact

The estimation of oil and gas Reserves, and their anticipated production profiles, involves subjective judgements and determinations based on a number of variable factors and assumptions, such as expected reservoir characteristics based on geological, geophysical and engineering assessments, future production rates based on historical performance and expected future operating investment activities, future oil and natural gas prices and quality differentials, production rates, ultimate reserve recovery, timing and amount of capital expenditures, marketability of oil and gas, royalty rates, the assumed effects of regulation by governmental agencies and future operating costs, all of which may vary materially from actual results. They are not exact determinations and are inherently uncertain. In addition, these judgements may change based on new information from production or drilling activities or changes in economic factors, as well as from developments such as acquisitions and disposals, new discoveries and extensions of existing fields and the application of improved recovery techniques. Published reserve estimates are also subject to correction for errors in the application of published rules and guidance.

The Reserves, Resources and production profile data contained in this document are estimates only and should not be construed as representing exact quantities. They are based on production data, prices, costs, ownership, geophysical, geological and engineering data, and other information assembled by the Company. The estimates may prove to be incorrect and potential investors should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this document concerning the Company's Reserves and Resources or production levels.

If the assumptions upon which the estimates of the Company's Reserves, Resources or production profiles have been based prove to be incorrect, the Company may be unable to recover and produce the estimated levels or quality of oil and gas set out in this document and this may have a material adverse effect on the Company's business.

2.3. The Company operates in a competitive industry

The Company competes for scarce resources with numerous other participants, including major international oil and gas companies, in the search for and the acquisition of oil and gas assets, and in the marketing of oil and gas. The Company's ability to increase Resources and Reserves will depend not only on its ability to exploit and develop its present assets but also on its ability to select and acquire suitable producing assets or prospects for exploratory or appraisal drilling. A number of the Company's competitors have substantially greater financial and personnel resources. Larger and better capitalised competitors may be in a position to outbid the Company for particular licences and such competitors may be able to secure rigs for drilling operations preferentially to the Company. These competitors may also be better able to withstand sustained periods of unsuccessful drilling or production. Larger competitors may be able to absorb the burden of any changes in law and regulations more easily than the Company, which would adversely affect its competitive position. In addition, many of the Company's competitors have been operating for a much longer time and have demonstrated the ability to operate through industry cycles.

The Company's competitors have strong market power as a result of several factors, including the diversification and reduction of risk, including geological, price and currency risks; greater financial strength facilitating major capital expenditures; greater integration and the exploitation of economies of scale in technology and organisation; strong technical experience; increased infrastructure and Reserves and strong brand recognition. Due to this competitive environment, the Company may be unable to acquire attractive, suitable assets, licences or prospects on terms that it considers acceptable. As a result, the Company's revenues may be adversely affected, thereby materially and adversely affecting its business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.

3.    RISKS RELATING TO THE ORDINARY SHARES

3.1. Future sales of Ordinary Shares could adversely affect the market price of the Ordinary Shares

Sales of additional Ordinary Shares into the public market following the Placing could adversely affect the market price of the Ordinary Shares if there is insufficient demand for the Ordinary Shares at the prevailing market price.

3.2. If the Resolutions are not passed, the Company will not be able to proceed with the Placing in the form currently envisaged

The Placing is conditional, inter alia, on the passing of the Resolutions. In the event that the Resolutions are not passed, the Company will not be able to proceed with the Placing, with the result that the anticipated net proceeds of the Placing will not become available to fund proposed upcoming expenditure and achieve the objectives currently pursued by the Board. The Company's business plan and growth prospects may be adversely affected as a result.

3.3. The Placing Shares will give rise to dilution for Shareholders

The Placing Shares will give rise to dilution for Shareholders. The effect of the Placing will be to reduce the proportionate ownership and voting interests in the Ordinary Shares of holders of existing Ordinary Shares. As a result, a Shareholder that does not participate in the Placing will experience a dilution in its interest as a result of the Placing. 

3.4. The issuance of additional Ordinary Shares in the Company in connection with future fundraising activities or otherwise may dilute all other shareholdings and may impact the price of the Ordinary Shares.

In addition to the Placing necessary to complete development of the Project, the Company may also seek to raise financing to fund other growth opportunities, invest in its business, or for general corporate purposes. Issuing additional equity securities or debt securities convertible into equity securities may be a more attractive option for the Company than additional debt financings. Any additional equity financings, depending on structure, would likely result in dilution in the percentage ownership of Shareholders and may involve the use of securities that have rights, preferences, or privileges senior to the Ordinary Shares which may adversely affect the price of the Ordinary Shares.

3.5. The Company's securities may not be suitable as an investment

The Company's Ordinary Shares may not be a suitable investment for all investors. Before making a final decision, investors are advised to consult an independent investment adviser authorised under the FSMA who specialises in advising on the acquisition of shares and other securities. The value of the Company's securities and any income received from them can go down as well as up and investors may get back less than their original investment.

3.6. The Company's Ordinary Shares are traded on AIM rather than the Official List

The Ordinary Shares are traded on AIM rather than the Official List. An investment in shares traded on AIM may carry a higher risk than those listed on the Official List. The market price of the Ordinary Shares may be subject to wide fluctuations in response to many factors, including variations in the operating results of the Company, divergence in financial results from analysts' expectations, changes in estimates by stock market analysts, general economic conditions, overall market or sector sentiment, legislative changes in the Company's sector and other events and factors outside of the Company's control. Stock markets have from time to time experienced severe price and volume fluctuations, a recurrence of which could adversely affect the market price for the Ordinary Shares. Prospective investors should be aware that the value of the Ordinary Shares may be volatile and could go down as well as up, and investors may therefore not recover their original investment especially as the market in the Ordinary Shares may have limited liquidity. Admission to AIM should not be taken as implying that there will be a liquid market for the Ordinary Shares.

3.7. The Company's share price fluctuates

The market price of the Ordinary Shares could be subject to significant fluctuations due to a change in sentiment in the market regarding the Ordinary Shares (or securities similar to them). Such risks depend on the market's perception of the likelihood of success of the Placing, and/or may occur in response to various facts and events, including any variations in the Company's operating results, business developments of the Company and/or its competitors. Stock markets have, from time to time, experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that have affected the market prices for securities and which may be unrelated to the Company's operating performance or prospects. Furthermore, the Company's operating results and prospects from time to time may be below the expectations of market analysts and investors. Any of these events could result in a decline in the market price of the Ordinary Shares and investors may, therefore, not recover their original investment.

Any sale of Ordinary Shares could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Ordinary Shares. Furthermore, it is possible that the Company may decide to offer additional shares in the future. An additional offering could also have an adverse effect on the market price of the Ordinary Shares.

The risks above do not necessarily comprise all those faced by the Company and are not intended to be presented in any assumed order of priority. The investment offered in this document may not be suitable for all of its recipients. Investors are accordingly advised to consult an investment adviser, who is authorised under the FSMA if you are resident in the United Kingdom or, if not, from another appropriate authorised independent financial adviser and who or which specialises in investments of this kind before making a decision to apply for Placing Shares.
