THIS IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT FALLING UNDER RULE 2.8 OF THE UK CITY CODE ON TAKEOVERS AND MERGERS (THE "CODE")

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 

15 November 2019

 

Statement from Candy Ventures Sarl

 

No intention to make an offer for Capital & Counties Properties plc

 

Following the statement on 21 October 2019 in which Candy Ventures Sarl ("Candy Ventures") confirmed that it was in the early stages of considering a possible cash offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Capital & Counties Properties plc ("Capco"), Candy Ventures notes the announcement made today by Capco concerning the sale of its interests in Earls Court to APG and Delancey.  Candy Ventures therefore confirms that it does not intend to make an offer for Capco.

 

This is a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. Accordingly Candy Ventures and any person acting in concert with it will, except with the consent of the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers, be bound by the restrictions under Rule 2.8 of the Code.

 

Under Note 2 on Rule 2.8 of the Code, Candy Ventures, and any person acting in concert with Candy Ventures, reserves the right to set aside the restrictions in Rule 2.8 in the following circumstances: (i) with the agreement of the board of Capco; (ii) if a third party announces a firm intention to make an offer for Capco; (iii) if Capco announces a "whitewash" proposal (see Note 1 of the Notes on Dispensations from Rule 9) or a reverse takeover (as defined in the Code); or (iv) if there has been a material change of circumstances (as determined by the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers).
