It is expected that the Offers will open on or around 7 January 2019 and will remain open until 5 April 2019, unless fully subscribed at an earlier date and subject to the directors’ right to close any Offer at any time. It is expected that all new shares will be allotted between 1 April 2019 and 5 April 2019.
