("DekelOil" or the "Company")

 

Proposed Equity Fundraising to raise €2.45million

 

Further to the announcement earlier today that AgDevCo Limited ("AgDevCo"), a leading African agriculture sector impact investor, has agreed to provide a €7.2 million loan to the Company ("AgDevCo Loan"), DekelOil, the West African focused agricultural company, is pleased to announce that as one of the conditions to the AgDevCo Loan, AgDevCo intends to subscribe for 41,188,990 new ordinary shares of €0.0003367 each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 3.27 pence per Ordinary Share (the "AgDevCo Subscription Price"), raising gross proceeds of approximately £1.35 million (€1.5 million) (the "AgDevCo Subscription").  The AgDevCo Subscription Price is based on a 5 per cent. premium to the last 30 days volume weighted average price of the Ordinary Shares.

 

A condition of the AgDevCo Loan and the AgDevCo Subscription is that the Company issues new equity raising gross proceeds of not less than €0.95 million, in addition to the €1.5 million AgDevCo Subscription.  The Company therefore intends to raise not less than approximately £0.85 million (€0.95 million) by conducting a placing of Ordinary Shares by way of an accelerated bookbuild (the "Bookbuild") (the "Placing") together with a direct equity subscription for new Ordinary Shares (on the same terms as the Placing) (the "Subscription").  The Placing price and the Subscription price will be 3.0 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price") except for the Directors who are considering investing at the higher AgDevCo Subscription price of 3.27 pence.  The AgDevCo Subscription, the Placing and the Subscription shall hereunder be described as the "Fundraising".

 

The Bookbuild will open with immediate effect following release of this announcement.  A further announcement confirming the closing of the Bookbuild and the number of new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Fundraising is expected to be made in due course.

 

Youval Rasin, CEO of the Company, and Lincoln Moore, Executive Director of the Company, have each indicated they intend to subscribe for 2,471,339 and 274,593 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Subscription, equivalent to approximately £81,000 (€90,000) and £9,000 (€10,000) respectively.

 

Expected Use of Proceeds

The proceeds of the Fundraising will be used to further strengthen the Company's balance sheet which in turn will help support a number of growth initiatives currently being evaluated by the Board.

 

Additional Information on the Fundraising and the Bookbuild

The final number of new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Fundraising (the "Fundraising Shares") will be determined following the close of the Bookbuild.  The Fundraising Shares, when issued, will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares.

 

The AgDevCo Subscription is conditional on the Placing and Subscription raising not less than €0.95 million.  The issuance of the Fundraising Shares will be conditional upon the approval of resolution 5 by the shareholders of the Company at the annual general meeting of the Company being held on 23 July 2019 at 11.00am (details of which were announced on 27 June 2019 ("Annual General Meeting").

 

The timing of the closing of the Bookbuild and allocations of the Placing Shares and Subscription Shares are at the discretion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital Limited, Optiva Securities Limited and the Company.  Details of the result of the Fundraising will be announced as soon as practicable after the close of the Bookbuild.  Attention is drawn to the detailed terms and conditions of the Placing described in the Appendix (which forms part of this announcement).  By choosing to participate in the Fundraising and by making an oral and legally binding offer to acquire Fundraising Shares, investors will be deemed to have read and understood this announcement in its entirety (including the Appendix) and to be making such offer on the terms and subject to the conditions in it, and to be providing the representations, warranties and acknowledgements contained in the Appendix.

 

Further updates will be provided as and when appropriate.

Notes:

To the extent that this Announcement contains certain forward-looking statements with respect to certain of the Company's plans and its current goals and expectations relating to its future financial condition and performance, a number of risks and uncertainties exist. The Company cautions readers that any forward-looking statement is no guarantee of future performance and that actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.

 

A forward-looking statement can be identified by the fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as "aim", "anticipate", "target", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "goal", "believe", "predict" or other words of similar meaning. Examples of forward-looking statements include, amongst others, statements regarding or which  make assumptions in respect of the planned use of the proceeds of the Fundraising, the liquidity position of the Company, the future performance of the Company, future foreign exchange rates, interest rates and currency controls, the future political and fiscal regimes in the overseas markets in which the Company operates, the Company's future financial position, plans and objectives for future operations and any other statements that are not historical fact.

 

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances, including, but not limited to, economic and business conditions, the effects of continued volatility in credit markets, market related risks such as changes in interest rates and foreign exchange rates, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, changes in legislation, the further development of standards and interpretations under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") applicable to past, current and future periods, evolving practices with regard to the interpretation and application of standards under IFRS, the outcome of pending and future litigation or regulatory investigations, the success of future acquisitions and other strategic transactions and the impact of competition. A number of these factors are beyond the Company's control. As a result, the Company's actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in the Company's forward-looking statements.

 

Any forward-looking statement made in this Announcement by or on behalf of the Company speak only as of the date they are made. These forward-looking statements reflect the Company's judgement at the date of this Announcement and are not intended to give any assurance as to future results. Except as required by the Financial Conduct Authority of the UK ("FCA"), the London Stock Exchange Plc ("London Stock Exchange"), the AIM Rules or applicable law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward looking statements contained in this announcement to reflect any changes in the Company's expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

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 "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II 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, distributors should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the 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, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital 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 the Placing Shares.

 

Persons who are invited to and who choose to participate in the Placing by making an oral or written offer to acquire Placing Shares, including any individuals, funds or others on whose behalf a commitment to acquire Placing Shares is given (the "Placees"), will be deemed: (i) to have read and understood this Announcement, including this Appendix, in its entirety; and (ii) to be participating and making an offer for Placing Shares on the terms and conditions and to be providing the representations, warranties, acknowledgements and undertakings, contained in this Appendix.

 

In particular each such Placee represents, warrants and acknowledges that:

 

a)   it is a Relevant Person and undertakes that it will acquire, hold, manage or dispose of any Placing Shares that are allocated to it for the purposes of its business;

 

b)  it is acquiring the Placing Shares for its own account or is acquiring the Placing Shares for an account with respect to which it has authority to exercise, and is exercising, investment discretion and has authority to make and does make the representations, warranties, indemnities, acknowledgements, undertakings and agreements contained in this Announcement;

 

c)   it understands (or if acting for the account of another person, such person has confirmed that such person understands) the resale and transfer restrictions set out in this Appendix; and

 

d)  if it is a financial intermediary, as that term is used in Article 3(2) of the Prospectus Directive, any Placing Shares acquired by it in the Placing will not be acquired on a non-discretionary basis on behalf of, nor will they be acquired with a view to their offer or resale to, persons in circumstances which may give rise to an offer of securities to the public other than an offer or resale to Qualified Investors in a member state of the EEA which has implemented the Prospectus Directive, or in circumstances in which the prior consent of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital has been given to each such proposed offer or resale.

 

Details of the Placing Agreement, the Placing Shares and the Bookbuild

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital are acting as joint brokers and joint bookrunners in connection with the Placing and have entered into the Placing Agreement with the Company under which they have conditionally agreed to use their respective reasonable endeavours to procure Placees to take up the Placing Shares, on the terms and subject to the conditions set out therein and in this Appendix. The Placing is not being underwritten.

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital will today commence the bookbuilding process to determine demand for participation in the Placing by potential Placees. This Appendix gives details of the terms and conditions of, and the mechanics of participation in, the Placing. No commissions will be paid to Placees or by Placees in respect of any Placing Shares.

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital shall be entitled to effect the Placing by such alternative method to the Bookbuild as they may, in their absolute discretion following consultation with the Company, determine.

 

The Placing Shares will, as from the date when they are issued, be fully paid up and rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares then in issue.

 

Application for listing and admission to trading

 

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares, the AgDevCo Subscription Shares and the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). On the assumption that, amongst other things, the Resolution is passed by Shareholders at the Annual General Meeting, it is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Placing Shares, Subscription Shares and AgdevCo Subscription Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 8 August 2019.

 

Participation in, and principal terms of, the Placing

 

1.    Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital are arranging the Placing as agents of the Company for the purpose of procuring Placees at the Issue Price for the Placing Shares.

 

2.      Participation in the Placing will only be available to persons who may lawfully be, and are, invited to participate by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital.  Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital and their affiliates are entitled to enter bids as principal in the Bookbuild.

 

3.    The final number of Placing Shares will be agreed between Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital and the Company following completion of the Bookbuild. The final number of Placing Shares to be issued will be announced on a Regulatory Information Service following completion of the Bookbuild.

 

4.    To bid in the Bookbuild, prospective Placees should communicate their bid by telephone or in writing to their usual sales contact at Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital. Each bid should state the number of Placing Shares which the prospective Placee wishes to subscribe for at the Issue Price. Bids may be scaled down on the basis referred to in paragraph 7 below.

 

5.      The Bookbuild is expected to close no later than 4.30 p.m. (London time) on 22 July 2019, but may be closed earlier or later, at the discretion of the Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital.

6.    Each Placee's allocation will be confirmed to Placees orally by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital following the close of the Bookbuild, and a trade confirmation or contract note will be dispatched as soon as possible thereafter. The terms of this Appendix are deemed to be incorporated in the form of confirmation. Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's or VSA Capital's oral confirmation to such Placee will constitute an irrevocable legally binding commitment upon such person (who will at that point become a Placee) in favour of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital and the Company, pursuant to which such Placee agrees to acquire the number of Placing Shares allocated to it and to pay or procure payment of the relevant Issue Price in respect of such shares on the terms and conditions set out in this Appendix and in accordance with the Company's corporate documents.

 

7.    Subject to paragraphs 3 and 4 above, after consultation with the Company as to the allocation of the Placing Shares to Placees, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital will, in effecting the Placing, determine the identity of the Placees and the basis of allocation of the Placing Shares.

 

8.      A bid in the Bookbuild will be made on the terms and subject to the conditions in this Appendix and, after confirmation (oral or otherwise) by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital, will be legally binding on the Placee on behalf of which it is made and except with Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's or VSA Capital's consent will not be capable of variation or revocation after the time at which it is submitted. Each Placee will also have an immediate, separate, irrevocable and binding obligation, owed to Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital, to pay or procure payment to it (or as it may direct) in cleared funds an amount equal to the product of the Issue Price and the number of Placing Shares that such Placee has agreed to acquire.

 

9.    Except as required by law or regulation, no press release or other announcement will be made by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital or the Company using the name of any Placee (or its agent), in its capacity as Placee (or agent), other than with such Placee's prior written consent.

 

10.   Irrespective of the time at which a Placee's allocation pursuant to the Placing is confirmed, settlement for all Placing Shares to be acquired pursuant to the Placing will be required to be made at the same time, on the basis explained below under "Registration and Settlement".

 

11.  All obligations under the Bookbuild and Placing will be subject to fulfilment or (where applicable and permissible by law) waiver of the conditions referred to below under "Conditions of the Placing" and to the Placing not being terminated on the basis referred to below under "Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement".

 

12.   By participating in the Bookbuild, each Placee agrees that its rights and obligations in respect of the Placing will terminate only in the circumstances described below and will not be capable of rescission or termination by the Placee after confirmation (oral or otherwise) by either Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital.

 

13.  To the fullest extent permissible by law, neither Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital, nor the Company nor any of their respective affiliates or persons acting on behalf of any of them shall have any responsibility or liability to Placees (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise). In particular, neither Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital, nor the Company, nor any of their respective affiliates or persons acting on behalf of any of them shall have any responsibility or liability (including to the extent permissible by law, any fiduciary duties) in respect of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's and/or VSA Capital's conduct of the Bookbuild or of such alternative method of effecting the Placing as Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital and the Company may agree. Nothing in this paragraph excludes liability of any person for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation made by that person.

 

Conditions of the Placing

 

The Placing is conditional upon the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not having been terminated in accordance with its terms. Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's and VSA Capital's obligations under the Placing Agreement are conditional on certain conditions, including inter alia:

 

a)    the Company having complied with certain specified obligations under the Placing Agreement (to the extent such obligations fall to be performed prior to Admission) including the Company allotting, conditional on Admission, the Placing Shares subject to the Articles;

 

b)   the Subscription having become unconditional in all respects save for any conditions relating the Placing Agreement or Admission;

 

c)    the AgDevCo Loan Agreement having been duly executed by all of the parties thereto and the satisfaction (or waiver) of all conditions precedent to the first drawdown of the loan facility;

 

d)   resolution 5 having been duly passed without amendment by the required majority at the Annual General Meeting;

 

e)    the delivery by the Company to Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital of certain documentary conditions precedent; and

 

f)      Admission of the Placing Shares occurring at 8:00 a.m. (London time) on 8 August 2019 (or such later time and/or date, not being later than 8:00 a.m. (London time) on 31 August 2019, as the Company and Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital may otherwise agree).

 

If: (i) any of the conditions contained in the Placing Agreement, including those described above, are not fulfilled or (where applicable and permissible by law) waived or extended in writing by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital by the relevant time or date specified (or such later time or date as the Company and Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital may agree); or (ii) prior to Admission the Placing Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms including, inter alia, in the circumstances specified below, the Placing will lapse and the Placees' rights and obligations hereunder in relation to the Placing Shares shall cease and terminate at such time and each Placee agrees that no claim can be made by it in respect thereof.

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital may, at their discretion, extend the time for satisfaction of, or, where applicable and permissible by law, waive compliance by the Company with, the whole or any part of certain of the Company's obligations in relation to the conditions in the Placing Agreement. Any such extension or waiver will not affect Placees' commitments as set out in this Announcement.

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital shall have no liability to any Placee (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) in respect of any decision it may make as to whether or not to waive or to extend the time and/or date for the satisfaction of any condition to the Placing nor for any decision it may make as to the satisfaction of any condition or in respect of the Placing generally and by participating in the Placing each Placee agrees that any such decision is within the absolute discretion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital.

 

During the period of 40 days after the later of the commencement of the Placing and the closing of the Placing, the Placing Shares may not be offered, sold or delivered within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (other than Placing Shares sold pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act) and an offer or sale of the Placing Shares within the United States during this period by any dealer (whether or not participating in the Placing) may violate the registration requirements of the Securities Act, if such offer or sale is made otherwise than pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act. Terms used in this paragraph have the respective meanings given to them by Regulation S under the Securities Act.

 

Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital may, after having to the extent practicable in the circumstances consulted with the Company, at any time before Admission of the Placing Shares terminate the Placing and the Placing Agreement in accordance with its terms in certain limited circumstances including, inter alia, if:

 

a)    any statement contained in the Placing documents has, in the opinion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital (acting reasonably), been discovered to be materially untrue, incorrect or misleading; or

 

b)   there has, in the opinion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital (acting reasonably), been a material breach of any of the warranties or any other obligations on the part of the Company under the Placing Agreement which is material in the context of the Placing.

 

Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital may also, after having to the extent practicable in the circumstances consulted with the Company, terminate the Placing Agreement, in accordance with its terms if, at any time prior to Admission of the Placing Shares, inter alia, there happens, develops or comes into effect:

(a)  any occurrence of any kind which (by itself or together with any other such occurrence) in the reasonable opinion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital is likely to materially and adversely affect the market's position or prospects of the Dekeloil group taken as a whole; or

(b)    any other crisis of international or national effect or any change in any currency exchange rates or controls or in any financial, political, economic or market conditions or in market sentiment which, in any such case, in the reasonable opinion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital is materially adverse to the Placing.

 

By participating in the Placing, Placees agree that the exercise by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital of any right of termination or other discretion under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital (acting in accordance with the terms of the Placing Agreement) and that it need not make any reference to, or consult with, Placees and that it shall have no liability to Placees whatsoever in connection with any such exercise.

 

No Prospectus

 

No offering document or prospectus has been or will be submitted to be approved by the FCA or submitted to the London Stock Exchange in relation to the Placing.

 

Placees' commitments will be made solely on the basis of the information contained in this Announcement (including this Appendix) released by the Company today and subject to the further terms set forth in any contract note to be provided to individual Placees. Each Placee, by accepting a participation in the Placing, agrees that the content of this Announcement (including this Appendix) and all other publicly available information previously published by the Company by notification to a Regulatory Information Service is exclusively the responsibility of the Company and confirms that it has neither received nor relied on any other information, representation, warranty or statement made by or on behalf of the Company or Joint Bookrunners or any other person and neither the Company nor the Joint Bookrunners nor any other person will be liable for any Placee's decision to participate in the Placing based on any other information, representation, warranty or statement which the Placees may have obtained or received. Each Placee acknowledges and agrees that it has relied on its own investigation of the business, financial or other position of the Group in accepting a participation in the Placing. Nothing in this paragraph shall exclude the liability of any person for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by that person.

 

Registration and Settlement

 

Settlement of transactions in Depositary Interests representing the Placing Shares (ISIN: CYC106502111) following Admission will take place within the system administered by Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited ("CREST"). Subject to certain exceptions, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital and the Company reserve the right to require settlement for, and delivery of, the Placing Shares (or any part thereof) to Placees by such other means that they deem necessary if delivery or settlement is not possible or practicable within the CREST system within the timetable set out in this Announcement or would not be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the Placee's jurisdiction.

 

Each Placee allocated Placing Shares in the Placing will be sent a trade confirmation in accordance with the standing arrangements in place with Cantor Fitzgerald Europe stating the number of Placing Shares allocated to it at the Issue Price, the aggregate amount owed by such Placee to Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and settlement instructions. Each Placee agrees that it will do all things necessary to ensure that delivery and payment is completed in accordance with the standing CREST or certificated settlement instructions in respect of the Placing Shares (or Depositary Interests representing the Placing Shares) that it has in place with Cantor Fitzgerald Europe.

 

It is expected that settlement for the Placing Shares will be on 8 August 2019 in accordance with the instructions set out in the trade confirmation. 

 

Each Placee is deemed to agree that, if it does not comply with these obligations, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe may sell any or all of the Placing Shares allocated to that Placee on such Placee's behalf and retain from the proceeds, for Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's account and benefit, an amount equal to the aggregate amount owed by the Placee. The relevant Placee will, however, remain liable for any shortfall below the aggregate amount owed by it and may be required to bear any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (together with any penalties) or other similar taxes imposed in any jurisdiction which may arise upon the sale of such Placing Shares on such Placee's behalf.

 

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent, Placees should ensure that the trade confirmation is copied and delivered immediately to the relevant person within that organisation.

 

Insofar as Placing Shares (or Depositary Interests representing such shares) are registered in a Placee's name or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom a Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares should, subject as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to UK stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax. If there are any circumstances in which any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax or other similar taxes or duties (including any interests and penalties relating thereto) is payable in respect of the allocation, allotment, issue, sale, transfer or delivery of the Placing Shares (or, for the avoidance of doubt, if any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax is payable in connection with any subsequent transfer of or agreement to transfer Placing Shares), none of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital or the Company shall be responsible for the payment thereof.

 

Representations, Warranties and Further Terms

15.  represents and warrants that it has complied with its obligations: (i) under the Criminal Justice Act 1993 and the Market Abuse Regulation (EU 596/2014);  (ii) in connection with the laws of all relevant jurisdictions which apply to it and it has complied, and will fully comply, with all such laws (including where applicable, the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (as amended) and the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017) and that it is not a person: (a) with whom transactions are prohibited under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 or any economic sanction programmes administered by, or regulations promulgated by, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury; (b) named on the Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets maintained by HM Treasury of the United Kingdom; or (c) subject to financial sanctions imposed pursuant to a regulation of the European Union or a regulation adopted by the United Nations ((i), (ii), (a) and (b), together, the "Regulations") and rules and guidance on anti-money laundering produced by the FCA and, if it is making payment on behalf of a third party, that satisfactory evidence has been obtained and recorded by it to verify the identity of the third party as required by the Regulations; and it is permitted to subscribe for Placing Shares in accordance with the laws of all relevant jurisdictions which apply to it and it has have complied, and will fully comply, with all such laws (including where applicable, the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (as amended) and the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017);

33.  represent, warrants and undertakes that its purchase of Placing Shares is in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations;

 

34.   agrees that the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital and their respective affiliates and others will rely upon the truth and accuracy of the foregoing representations, warranties, acknowledgements, agreements, and undertakings which are given to Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital on its own behalf and on behalf of the Company and are irrevocable and it irrevocably authorises the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital to produce this Announcement, pursuant to, in connection with, or as may be required by any applicable law or regulation, administrative or legal proceeding or official inquiry with respect to the matters set forth herein;

 

35.  acknowledges that none of the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe nor VSA Capital owes any fiduciary or other duties to any Placee in respect of any acknowledgments, confirmations, undertakings, representations, warranties or indemnities in the Placing Agreement; and

 

36.  acknowledges and agrees that its commitment to take up Placing Shares on the terms set out in this Announcement (including this Appendix) will continue notwithstanding any amendment that may now or in the future be made to the terms and conditions of the Placing and that Placees will have no right to be consulted or require that their consent be obtained with respect to the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital's conduct of the Placing.

 

The foregoing representations, warranties, agreements, undertakings, acknowledgements and confirmations are given for the benefit of the Company as well as Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital and are irrevocable.

 

The agreement to allot and issue Placing Shares to Placees (and/or to persons for whom such Placee is contracting as agent) free of stamp duty and stamp duty reserve tax relates only to their allotment and issue to Placees, or such persons as they nominate as their agents, direct from the Company for the Placing Shares in question. Such agreement also assumes that the Placing Shares are not being acquired in connection with arrangements to issue depositary receipts or to issue or transfer the Placing Shares into a clearance service. If there are any such arrangements, or the settlement relates to any other dealing in the Placing Shares, stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax or other similar taxes may be payable, for which none of the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe nor VSA Capital will be responsible and the Placees shall indemnify the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital on an after-tax basis for any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax paid by them in respect of any such arrangements or dealings. If this is the case, each Placee should seek its own advice and notify Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital accordingly. Placees are advised to consult with their own advisers regarding the tax aspects of their subscription for Placing Shares.

 

None of the Company, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital are liable to bear any transfer taxes that arise on a sale of Placing Shares (or Depositary Interests representing such shares) subsequent to their acquisition by Placees or for transfer taxes arising otherwise than under the laws of the United Kingdom. Each Placee should, therefore, take its own advice as to whether any such transfer tax liability arises and notify Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital accordingly. Furthermore, each Placee agrees to indemnify on an after-tax basis and hold Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, VSA Capital and the Company and their respective affiliates harmless from any and all interest, fines or penalties in relation to stamp duty, stamp duty reserve tax and all other similar duties or taxes to the extent that such interest, fines or penalties arise from the default or delay of that Placee or its agent.

 

In addition, Placees should note that they will be liable for any stamp duty and all other stamp, issue, securities, transfer, registration, documentary or other duties or taxes (including any interest, fines or penalties relating thereto) payable outside the UK by them or any other person on the acquisition by them of any Placing Shares or the agreement by them to acquire any Placing Shares (or, in each case, Depositary Interests representing such shares).

 

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of the Placee acknowledges and agrees that Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and VSA Capital or any of their affiliates may, at their absolute discretion, agree to become a Placee in respect of some or all of the Placing Shares.

 

When a Placee or person acting on behalf of the Placee is dealing with Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital, any money held in an account with Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital on behalf of the Placee and/or any person acting on behalf of the Placee will not be treated as client money within the meaning of the rules and regulations of the FCA made under the FSMA. The Placee acknowledges that the money will not be subject to the protections conferred by the client money rules; as a consequence, this money will not be segregated from Cantor Fitzgerald Europe's money or VSA Capital's money in accordance with the client money rules and will be used by Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital respectively in the course of their own business and the Placee will rank only as a general creditor of Cantor Fitzgerald Europe and/or VSA Capital.

 

All times and dates in this Announcement may be subject to amendment. Cantor Fitzgerald Europe or VSA Capital shall notify the Placees and any person acting on behalf of the Placees of any changes.
