Accordingly the board of directors of the Company has resolved to invoke the relevant provisions of the Company's articles of association (the "Articles") to convert all of the Company's A Shares and C shares in the capital of the Company, such that all such shares were converted to Deferred Shares on 20 April 2017, such conversion to be calculated by reference to the net asset value per share of each relevant share class as at 20 April 2017 and the shareholdings reflected on the register of members of  the Company as at close of business on 19 April 2017 (the "Conversion").  The Conversion took place on 20 April 2017, as a consequence of which all A Shares and C Shares were converted to deferred shares as follows:

Share class

Number of shares prior to conversion

Number of deferred shares following conversion

A Shares

10,724,029

10,724,029

C Shares

7,126,194

7,126,194

 

In accordance with the Articles, the 17,850,223 deferred shares referred to above were repurchased by the Company immediately following the Conversion and subsequently cancelled.

 

Application will be made for the reference to the A Shares and C Shares to be removed from the premium segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and from admission to trading on the London Stock Exchange plc's main market for listed securities, which is expected to take place on or around 24 April 2017.

 

Following the Conversion and the repurchase and the cancellation of the deferred shares, the issued share capital of the Company is:
