No person receiving a copy of the admission document in any territory other than the UK may treat the same as constituting an offer or invitation to him to purchase or subscribe for ordinary shares nor should he in any event purchase or subscribe for ordinary shares unless such an invitation or purchase complies with any registration or other legal requirements in the relevant territory. Any person outside the UK into whose possession the admission document comes or who wishes to purchase ordinary shares should satisfy himself that, in doing so, he complies with the laws of any relevant jurisdiction and that he obtains any requisite governmental or other consents and observes any other applicable formalities.
The ordinary shares have not been nor will they be, registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or with any securities regulatory authority of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States or under the applicable securities laws of Australia, Canada, Japan or the Republic of South Africa. Subject to certain exceptions, the ordinary shares may not be offered or sold in the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan or the Republic of South Africa or to or for the account or benefit of any national, resident or citizen of Australia, Canada, Japan or the Republic of South Africa or any person located in the United States. The admission document does not constitute an offer of, or the solicitation of an offer to subscribe for or buy, any ordinary shares to any person in any jurisdiction to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation in such jurisdiction and is not for distribution in, or into, the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan or the Republic of South Africa. The distribution of the admission document in other jurisdictions may be restricted by law and therefore persons into whose possession the admission document comes should inform themselves of and observe such restrictions.

Details of any restrictions on the transfer of securities
Ordinary shares in the Company in certificated form shall be transferred by instrument
of transfer in writing in any usual or common form, or in such other form as shall be
approved by the directors. The instrument of transfer shall be executed by or on behalf
of the transferor (and also the transferee in the case of a partly paid share).
The directors may, in their absolute discretion and without giving any reason, refuse to register a
transfer where a share is not fully paid up provided that where any such shares are
admitted to trading on AIM, such discretion may not be exercised in such a way as to
prevent dealings in the shares from taking place on an open and proper basis.
The directors may also refuse to register an instrument of transfer in respect of any share
where inter alia, it is in favour of (i) more than four tranferees; (ii) an investor subject to Title 1 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, of the United States ("ERISA") or section 4975 of the the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, of the United States (the "Code") using assets of plans that are subject to Title 1 of ERISA or section 4975 of the Code (including, as applicable, assets of an insurance company general account) or plans, individual retirement accounts, annuities and other arrangements that are subject to the prohibited transaction provisions of section 406 of ERISA or section 4975 of the Code, or to provisions under applicable federal, state, local or other laws or regulations that are substantially similar to such provisions of ERISA or the Code; (iii) a resident of the United States; or (iv) a resident of any other
jurisdiction in which statute or regulation places restrictions on transferability.
