FireAngel Safety Technology Group plc
(‘FireAngel’, the ‘Company’ or the ‘Group’)
Open Offer Application Procedure
Further to its announcement of 23 March 2020, FireAngel (AIM: FA.), one of Europe’s leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, announces the availability of an additional means of application under the Open Offer for Qualifying Non-CREST Shareholders who wish to apply to acquire all or any of the Open Offer Shares to which they are entitled in light of the rules recently published by the UK Government in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Completed Application Forms may now be scanned and sent electronically via email to the Company’s Registrars at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the original completed Application Form to follow via post using the accompanying reply-paid envelope or by hand (during normal office hours only) to Neville Registrars Limited, Neville House, Steelpark Road, Halesowen B62 8HD (who are acting as Receiving Agent in relation to the Open Offer). The completed and scanned Application Forms must be received by the Receiving Agent by no later than 11.00 a.m. on 8 April 2020, after which time scanned Application Forms will not be accepted (subject to certain exceptions as set out in paragraph 4.1(c) of Part 3 of the Circular). Neither the Company nor Neville Registrars Limited accept any liability for emails sent by a Qualifying Non-CREST Shareholder but not received by the Receiving Agent by such time. Qualifying Non-CREST Shareholders should note that applications, once made, will be irrevocable and receipt thereof will not be acknowledged.
Qualifying Non-CREST Shareholders should note that if completed Application Forms are scanned and sent via email to the Receiving Agent at the above email address, they should request the relevant bank details from the Receiving Agent so they may remit their funds via electronic transfer to be received by no later than 11.00 a.m. on 8 April 2020, after which time the funds will be returned to the sender and the corresponding application will be invalid. For the avoidance of doubt, the original completed Application Form does not need to be received by the Receiving Agent by 11.00 a.m. on 8 April 2020 if a scanned Application Form has been sent, but a scanned Application Form and their corresponding funds will need to have been received by such time in order for their application to be treated as valid.
For all enquiries in connection with the procedure for application and completion of the Application Form, including to request the relevant bank details ahead of submitting scanned Application Forms, please contact Neville Registrars Limited on 0121 585 1131. Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls outside the United Kingdom will be charged at the applicable international rate. The helpline is open between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m., Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales. Please note that Neville Registrars Limited cannot provide any financial, legal or tax advice and calls may be recorded and monitored for security and training purposes.
Capitalised terms in this announcement have the same meaning as given in the Circular posted to Shareholders on 23 March 2020.
