Accordingly, such documents and/or materials were not distributed to, and must not have been passed on to, the general public in the United Kingdom. The communication of such documents and/or materials as a financial promotion was only being made to those persons in the United Kingdom falling within the definition of investment professionals (as defined in Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (the “Financial Promotion Order”)) or persons who are existing members or creditors of the Offeror or other persons falling within Article 43(2) of the Financial Promotion Order or any other persons to whom it may otherwise lawfully be communicated in accordance with the Financial Promotion Order.
