(i) the Offer relates to the securities of a company incorporated in England and Wales with a listing on London Stock Exchange plc and is subject to UK procedural and disclosure requirements and practices that are different from those of the United States;
(ii) none of the securities referred to in the Microsite or in the Information in the Microsite have been approved or disapproved by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, any state securities commission in the United States or any other US regulatory authority, nor have such authorities passed upon or determined the adequacy or accuracy of the Information in the Microsite; and

The Information (including information incorporated by reference) in the Microsite may contain forward-looking statements regarding the financial position, business strategy, plans and objectives of management for future operations of the Company.
All statements other than statements of historical facts included in any document may be forward looking statements. Forward-looking statements often use words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “expect”, “plan”, “goal”, “hope”, “aims”, “continue”, “will”, “may”, “should”, “would”, “could”, “budgets”, “forecasts” and words of similar meaning.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances outside of the control of management, and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct and readers are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Some important factors that could cause the Company’s actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, among others, changes in the global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, changes in the level of capital investment, success of business and operating initiatives and restructuring objectives, customers' strategies and stability, the cyclical nature of the property market, planning risks, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax rates and future business combinations or dispositions. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of the respective documents. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and have not been reviewed by the auditors of the Company. The Company and its directors, officers, employees and advisers expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statement (except to the extent legally required).
All forward-looking statements contained in this Microsite are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. In light of these risks, results could differ materially from those stated, implied or inferred from the forward-looking statements contained in this Microsite.
No profit forecast
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement contained or referred to in the Microsite is intended to be a profit forecast.
