Applications have been made to the UK Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange to update the listing records for the Ordinary Shares and to effect the removal from the listing of the C Share and D Shares classes, expected to become effective on 4 July 2018.

Share certificates for those Ordinary Shares arising on conversion of the C Shares and D shares will be dispatched by 9 July 2018 if the proposals are approved.
