Resolution 11

That, subject to the passing of Resolution 10 above, in substitution for all subsisting authorities to the extent unused, the Directors be and they are hereby authorised, pursuant to section 570 and section 573 Companies Act 2006, to allot equity securities (within the meaning of section 560 Companies Act 2006) for cash either pursuant to the authority conferred by Resolution 10 or by way of a sale of treasury shares, as if section 561(1) Companies Act 2006 did not apply to any such allotment, provided that this authority shall be limited to the allotment of equity securities in connection with an offer of equity securities:

 

(a)  to holders of ordinary shareholders in proportion (as nearly as may be practicable) to their existing holdings; and

(b)  to holders of other equity securities as required by the rights of those securities or as the Directors otherwise consider necessary,

 

and so that the Directors may impose any limits or restrictions and make any arrangements which they consider necessary or appropriate to deal with any treasury shares, fractional entitlements or securities represented by depositary receipts, record dates, legal, regulatory or practical problems in, or under the laws of, any territory or the requirements of any regulatory body or stock exchange or any other matter.

 

The authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company after the passing of this Resolution, or the date which falls 15 months after the date on which this Resolution is passed, whichever is the earlier, save that the Company may, before such expiry, make offers and enter into agreements which would or might require equity securities to be allotted after such expiry and the Directors may allot equity securities in pursuance of such offers or agreements as if the authority conferred had not expired.

 

Resolution 12

That, subject to the passing of Resolution 10 above, in addition to the authority granted by Resolution 11, but in substitution for all other subsisting authorities to the extent unused, the Directors be and they are hereby authorised, pursuant to section 570 and section 573 Companies Act 2006, to allot equity securities (within the meaning of section 560 Companies Act 2006) for cash either pursuant to the authority conferred by Resolution 10 or by way of a sale of treasury shares, as if section 561(1) Companies Act 2006 did not apply to any such allotment, provided that this authority shall be limited to the allotment of equity securities in connection with an offer of equity securities up to an aggregate nominal amount of US$91,545.

 

The authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company after the passing of this Resolution, or the date which falls 15 months after the date on which this Resolution is passed, whichever is the earlier, save that the Company may, before such expiry, make offers and enter into agreements which would or might require equity securities to be allotted after such expiry and the Directors may allot equity securities in pursuance of such offers or agreements as if the authority conferred hereby had not expired.

Resolution 13

That the Company be and is hereby generally and unconditionally authorised for the purposes of section 701 Companies Act 2006, to make market purchases (within the meaning of section 693(4) Companies Act 2006) of ordinary shares of one penny each in the capital of the Company on such terms and in such manner as the Directors shall from time to time determine, provided that:

a.   the maximum number of ordinary shares hereby authorised to be purchased is 13,722,652

 

b.   the minimum price (exclusive of expenses) which may be paid for an ordinary share is one cent;

 

c.   the maximum price (exclusive of expenses) which may be paid for an ordinary share shall be not more than the higher of: (i) an amount equal to 105 per cent. of the average of the middle market quotations for an Ordinary Share (as derived from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List) for the five business days immediately preceding the date on which that Ordinary Share is contracted to be purchased; and (ii) an amount equal to the higher of the price of the last independent trade of an ordinary share and the highest current independent bid on the trading venues where the purchase is carried out;

 

d.   the authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company after the passing of this Resolution, or the date which falls 15 months after the date on which this Resolution 13 is passed, whichever is the earlier (unless previously revoked, varied or renewed by the Company in general meeting prior to such time); and

 

e.   the Company may at any time prior to the expiry of such authority enter into such a contract or contracts under which a purchase of ordinary shares under such authority will or may be completed or executed wholly or partly after the expiration of such authority and the Company may purchase ordinary shares in pursuance of any such contract or contracts as if the authority conferred hereby had not expired.

 

 

As at 17 May 2021, the Company's issued share capital was 91,545,383 ordinary shares of US$0.01 each. Each ordinary share carries the right to one vote in relation to all circumstances at general meetings of the Company, and the Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Accordingly, the total voting rights in the Company at the time of the AGM were 91,545,383.
