It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the full observance of any laws and regulatory requirements.  If you are not permitted to view the Information on this website, or viewing the Information would result in a breach of the above, or you are in any doubt as to whether you are permitted to view the Information, please exit this web page.

Additional US information

The Offer relates to the shares of a UK company and will be subject to UK procedural and disclosure requirements that are different from those of the United States. Any financial statements or other financial information included in this section of the website may have been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards that may not be comparable to the financial statements of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. It may be difficult or impossible for US holders of shares to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under the US federal securities laws in connection with the Offer, since the Company is located in a country other than the United States and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of countries other than the United States. US holders of shares in the Company may not be able to sue the Company or its respective officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel the Company and its affiliates to subject themselves to the jurisdiction or judgment of a US court.

Forward-looking statements

The Information (including information incorporated by reference) in this section of the website 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 also often use words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “expect”, “plan”, “goal”, “hope”, “aims”, “continue”, “will”, “may”, “should”, “would”, “could” and words of similar meaning.  By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances, 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 you are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.  The 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, 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.  The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statement (except to the extent legally required).

No profit forecast

Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement contained or referred to in this section of the website is intended to be a profit forecast.
