Of the Shares purchased, 40,000 were acquired on behalf of Kestrel Opportunities and following this transaction, Kestrel Opportunities holds (and consequently Mr Royde is deemed to have a beneficial interest in) 7,007,664 Shares in the Company. The remaining 10,000 Shares were purchased on behalf of Kestrel’s other discretionary clients, in which Mr Royde has no beneficial interest, who, following this transaction, hold a further 844,545 Shares in the Company.
