Any shares so purchased will be held in treasury.
These instructions are valid until cancelled, suspended or amended and have been put in place to ensure that share repurchases may continue, if required, even when the Company is in possession of inside information, including, for these purposes, during the short period prior to the announcement of the Company's NAV per ordinary share each month. The Board shall not cancel, suspend or amend these instructions at any time when it is in possession of inside information. Any purchases will be made in accordance with Chapter 12 of the Listing Rules and any repurchase decisions will be made by Winterflood independently of, and uninfluenced by, the Company. The Board has established, and will implement and maintain, adequate and effective internal arrangements and procedures to ensure that the Winterflood personnel carrying out the repurchases and any others persons who may have influence on those persons are not in possession of any inside information for the duration of the repurchase instructions.
The Company confirms that it is not currently in possession of any inside information relating to the Company which has not been publicly disclosed.
