ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING SUSPENSION OF TRADING IN SOLBE1 SHARES OF
SHAREHOLDERS WHO HAVE NOT EXERCISED THE ELECTION RIGHT

1. We refer to the SENS announcement published on Wednesday, 21 February 2018 relating to the
consequences of not exercising the Election Right as more fully described in that SENS
announcement.

2. Should a SOLBE1 shareholder –

2.1. not have exercised the Election Right during the period referred to in the Wednesday, 21
February 2018 SENS announcement;

2.2. have exercised the Election Right but the election was void for any reason,

2.3. have disposed of some of such SOLBE1 shareholder’s SOLBE1 Shares from Wednesday,
7 February 2018; or

2.4. have acquired SOLBE1 Shares from Wednesday, 7 February 2018,

(“Non-Electing SOLBE1 Shareholder”), such Non-Electing SOLBE1 shareholder will be unable
to trade in his/her/its SOLBE1 Shares or remaining SOLBE1 Shares, as the case may be, from
09:00, Tuesday, 27 March 2018 until 09:00 on Friday, 6 April 2018. The reason for this suspension
is that the SOLBE1 Shares in question will automatically re-designate as SOL Shares on Thursday,
5 April 2018 and the suspension in trading is required in order to enable the correct shareholders’
names to be on the SOLBE1 securities register on Thursday, 29 March 2018, being the record date
for purposes of the re-designation (“Record Date”). The names of the Non-Electing SOLBE1
Shareholders that appear on the SOLBE1 securities register on the Record Date will be transferred
to the SOL securities register on Thursday, 5 April 2018.
