PPHC is not subject to the Takeover Code because its registered office and its place of central management and control are outside the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.As a result, certain protections that are afforded to shareholders under the Takeover Code, for example in relation to a takeover of a company or certain stakebuilding activities by shareholders, do not apply to the Company.However, the Company has incorporated certain provisions in the Certificate of Incorporation which seek to provide Shareholders with certain protections otherwise afforded by the Takeover Code. These include provisions similar to Rule 9 of the Takeover Code and require that any person who acquires, whether by a series of transactions over a period of time or not, an interest in shares which, taken together with shares in which he or she is already interested or in which persons acting in concert with him or her are interested, carry 30 per cent. or more of the voting rights of the company, is normally required to make a general offer to all the remaining shareholders to acquire their shares.For further information, please see the Admission Document.
