The underlying corporate action ISIN and number must also be quoted in the transaction on the Miscellaneous tab.

Additional Information

Ordinary Shares in SEC ("SEC Shares") are not capable of being held, transferred or settled through the CREST settlement systems. For this reason, SEC shareholders will not be issued with SEC Shares directly but will be issued with SEC CDIs. One SEC CDI will represent one SEC Share. The SEC CDIs will reflect the economic rights attached to the SEC Shares. However, while the holders of SEC CDIs will have an interest in the underlying SEC Shares, they will not be the registered holders of the SEC Shares.

The SEC CDIs to which such SEC Shareholders will be entitled will be delivered, held and settled in CREST and linked to the underlying SEC Shares by means of the CREST International Settlement Links Service and, in particular, the established link with SIX SIS AG. This link operates via the services of CREST International Nominees Limited, which is a participant in SIX SIS AG. Under the CREST International Settlement Links Services, CREST Depository Limited, a subsidiary of Euroclear, issues dematerialised depository interests representing entitlements to non-UK securities (such as the SEC Shares) called CDIs, which may be held, transferred and settled exclusively through the CREST system. The terms on which CDIs are issued and held in CREST are set out in the CREST Manual and the CREST Terms and Conditions issued by Euroclear.

On settlement, SEC will instruct its transfer agent to cause the credit of the SEC Shares through SIX SIS AG to the securities account of CREST International Nominees Limited, as nominee for CREST Depository Limited. CREST Depository Limited will then issue the SEC CDIs in CREST to Euroclear as receiving agent for delivery to the securities deposit account in the CREST system.  A custody fee, as determined by CREST from time to time, is charged at the user level (i.e. to the holder of SEC CDIs) for the CREST International Settlement Links Service.

The registered holder of the SEC Shares represented by SEC CDIs will be CREST International Nominees Limited, who will hold them through SIX SIS AG. CREST Depository Limited will hold those SEC Shares on trust (as bare trustee under English law) for the SEC Shareholders to whom it will issue SEC CDIs

If Qualifying Shareholders have any queries or questions relating to the procedure for acceptance and payment, they should contact Euroclear on 08459 645 648. or, if phoning from outside the UK, on 08459 645 648. Calls may be recorded and monitored randomly for security and training purposes. Euroclear cannot provide advice on the merits of the Shareholder Offer nor give any financial, legal or tax advice.
