Hub Capital Partners Limited is acting exclusively as financial adviser to SAPC and no-one else in connection with the Offer and other matters described in this announcement, and will not be responsible to anyone other than SAPC for providing the protections afforded to clients of Hub Capital Partners Limited or for providing advice in relation to the Offer, the contents of this announcement or any other matter referred to herein.

This announcement has been prepared for the purposes of complying with English law and the Code and the information disclosed may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this announcement had been prepared in accordance with the laws and/or regulations of jurisdictions outside of the UK.

The availability of the Offer and the release, publication and distribution of this announcement in jurisdictions other than the United Kingdom may be restricted by the laws of those jurisdictions and therefore persons who are not resident in the United Kingdom into whose possession this announcement comes should inform themselves about and observe any such restrictions.

Failure to comply with any such restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the companies and persons involved in the Offer disclaim any responsibility or liability for the violation of such restrictions by any person.

Copies of this announcement and any formal documentation relating to the Offer are not being, and must not be, directly or indirectly, mailed or otherwise forwarded, distributed or sent in or into or from any Restricted Jurisdiction and persons receiving such documents (including, without limitation, custodians, nominees and trustees) must not mail or otherwise forward, distribute or send them in, into or from any Restricted Jurisdiction.

The Offer is being made for the securities of a UK company and is subject to UK disclosure requirements, which are different from those in the United States. The financial information included in the Offer Document has been prepared in accordance with accounting standards applicable in the United Kingdom and thus may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

The Offer is being made in the United States pursuant to applicable UK tender offer rules and securities laws and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of the Code. Accordingly, the Offer is subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights, offer timetable, settlement procedures and timing of payments that are different from those applicable to tender offers made in accordance with US procedures and law.

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

In accordance with the Code and normal UK market practice and pursuant to Rule 14e-5(b)(10) under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the 'Exchange Act'), SAPC or its nominees or brokers (acting as agents) may from time to time make certain purchases of, or arrangements to purchase, Sunkar Shares outside the United States, otherwise than pursuant to the Offer, before or during the period in which the Offer remains open for acceptance, such as in open market purchases at prevailing prices or privately negotiated purchases at negotiated prices.

In the event that SAPC or its nominees or brokers (acting as agents) purchase or make arrangements to purchase Sunkar Shares for a higher price than the Offer Price, the Offer Price will be increased to match the higher price paid outside the Offer. Such purchases, or arrangements to purchase, will comply with all applicable United Kingdom rules, including the Code and the AIM Rules.

These purchases may occur in the open market or as privately negotiated transactions. Any information about such purchases which is required to be made public in the United Kingdom pursuant to the Code will be reported to a Regulatory Information Service and will be available on the London Stock Exchange website at www.londonstockexchange.com.
