Notice to US investors

The Scheme Proposal relates to the shares of an English company and is being implemented by means of a scheme of arrangement provided for under English company law. A transaction effected by means of a scheme of arrangement is not subject to the proxy solicitation or the tender offer rules under the US Exchange Act. Accordingly, the Scheme Proposal is subject to the disclosure requirements and practices applicable in the UK to schemes of arrangement, which differ from the disclosure requirements of the US proxy solicitation and tender offer rules. The settlement procedure with respect to the Scheme Proposal will be consistent with UK practice, which differs from US domestic tender offer procedures in certain material respects, particularly with regard to date of payment.

It may be difficult for US Shareholders to enforce their rights and any claim arising out of the US federal securities laws, since Bovess and Cattles are each located in a non-US jurisdiction, and some or all of their officers and directors may be residents of a non-US jurisdiction. US Shareholders may not be able to sue a non-US company or its officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of the US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel a non-US company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a US court's judgment.

Forward Looking Statements

This area of the website contains contain certain "forward-looking statements" with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Cattles and certain plans or objectives of Bovess or Cattles with respect thereto and are naturally subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. The accuracy and completeness of all such statements, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Group's future financial position, strategy, plans and objectives for the management of future operations, is not warranted or guaranteed. These statements typically contain words such as ”intends”, ”expects”, ”anticipates”, ”estimates” and words of similar import. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. Although Cattles believes that the expectations reflected in such statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to be correct. Except to the extent required by applicable law, the City Code or the Listing Rules, Cattles does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
