If Bidco receives acceptances under the offer in respect of, and/or otherwise acquires, not less than 90 per cent. of the Quintain shares to which the Offer relates by nominal value and voting rights attaching to such shares, Bidco intends to exercise its rights pursuant to section 979 of the UK Companies Act to acquire compulsorily the remaining Quintain shares. After the offer becomes or is declared unconditional in all respects and if Bidco has by virtue of its shareholdings and acceptances of the offer acquired, or agreed to acquire, Quintain shares representing at least 75 per cent. of the voting rights of Quintain, Bidco intends to procure the making of an application by Quintain for cancellation, respectively, of the trading in Quintain Shares on the London Stock Exchange`s main market for listed securities and of the listing of Quintain shares on the premium listing segment of the official list. A notice period of not less than 20 Business Days before the cancellation will commence on the date on which the offer becomes or is declared unconditional in all respects provided Bidco has attained 75 per cent. or more of the voting rights as described above or otherwise as soon as Bidco attains 75 per cent. or more of the voting rights of Quintain as described above. Delisting would significantly reduce the liquidity and marketability of any Quintain shares not assented to the offer.
Cancellation of admission to listing on the official list and to trading on the London Stock Exchange is expected to take effect on or shortly after 8.00am on 23rd October 2015.
