   * As a percentage of the nominal amount of the relevant Notes. 
 
   Rationale for the Offers and the Proposals 
 
   On 6 April 2021, Atlas UK Bidco Limited, a newly incorporated entity 
that is indirectly controlled by Allied Universal Topco LLC (Allied 
Universal), announced that its recommended cash offer for the Company 
had become unconditional in all respects. 
 
   The Company understands that Allied Universal wishes to streamline its 
capital structure to provide greater flexibility going forward. As such 
the Company is making the Offers and the Proposals with a view to 
achieving this goal. In addition, should the Offers be accepted and the 
Proposals passed, this will allow the Company to apply to S&P Global 
Ratings to withdraw the ratings of the Company and the Notes. 
 
   The Offers for the Notes are therefore structured on an any-and-all 
basis in order to give all holders of Notes the opportunity to exit such 
Notes at a premium to market level prevailing at the time of launch. 
 
   The Company understands that Allied Universal intends to use the amounts 
borrowed by it under various recent financing arrangements it has put in 
place, together with cash on hand and certain equity contributions, to 
fund the Offers and redemption of the Notes should the Extraordinary 
Resolutions be passed. 
 
   Notes purchased in the Offers are expected to be cancelled. 
 
   Following confirmation by Allied that its recommended cash offer for the 
Company had become unconditional on 6 April 2021, a Change of Control 
(as defined in the terms and conditions of the Notes) occurred under the 
terms and conditions of each series of Notes. On 22 April 2021, S&P 
Global Ratings announced that it had downgraded the Company's credit 
rating, and the Company's senior unsecured debt rating (in respect of 
the Notes), in each case, from BBB- to B. 
 
   On 26 April 2021 the Company on behalf of the Issuer notified holders of 
each series of Notes that, pursuant to Condition 5.4(f) in relation to 
each series of Notes, a Step Up Rating Change had occurred. As a result, 
from and including the first Interest Payment Date following the date of 
a Step Up Rating Change the Rate of Interest payable on the Notes, for 
so long as they remain outstanding, will be increased by the relevant 
Step Up Margin. Such Interest Payment Date is, 9 January 2022 in respect 
of the EUR500,000,000 1.50 per cent. Notes due 2023, 2 June 2021 in 
respect of the EUR500,000,000 1.50 per cent. Notes due 2024 and 24 May 
2021 in respect of the EUR550,000,000 1.875 per cent. Notes due 2025. 
 
   Should the Offers and the Proposals be unsuccessful such that any Notes 
remain outstanding, a Put Event (as defined in the terms and conditions 
of the Notes) is likely to occur under the terms and conditions of each 
series of Notes. If a Put Event occurs, holders of the Notes have the 
option to require the Issuer to redeem or at the Issuer's option to 
purchase (or procure the purchase) of their Notes on the Put Date at par 
plus accrued interest to such date. It is expected that the Put Event 
will arise on 4 August 2021 (being the date that falls 120 days 
following the date of the change of control and assuming the Company's 
rating does not revert to investment grade during this period, as more 
fully described in the term and conditions of the Notes). Following the 
occurrence of a Put Event, the Issuer would be required to give notice 
to holders of the Notes that a Put Event has occurred and holders 
wishing to exercise their put right must do so within a period of 45 
days following such notice. Should holders elect to exercise their put 
right, they would be paid par on the relevant redemption date, plus 
accrued interest to such date. 
 
   For the avoidance of doubt, the acquisition by Allied Universal of the 
Company does not give rise to an event of default under the Notes. 
 
   Details of the Offers 
 
   The Issuer will pay, on the Settlement Date, for the Notes of each 
Series accepted by it for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer, a 
cash purchase price as specified in the table above (in each case the 
Purchase Price and together the Purchase Prices). 
 
   The Issuer will also pay, on the Settlement Date, an Accrued Interest 
Payment in respect of those Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the 
relevant Offer(s). 
 
   In order to participate in an Offer, Noteholders must validly tender 
their Notes for purchase by delivering, or arranging to have delivered 
on their behalf, a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the 
Tender and Information Agent by 9.00 a.m. (London time) on 18 June 2021 
(the Expiration Deadline). 
 
   Each Noteholder that validly tenders its Notes by delivering, or 
arranging to have delivered on its behalf, a valid Tender Instruction 
that is received by the Tender and Information Agent by 10.00 p.m. 
(London time) on 3 June 2021 (the Early Tender Deadline) (and does not 
subsequently revoke such tender in the limited circumstances in which 
such revocation is permitted, as described in the Tender Offer 
Memorandum), will also receive the early tender payment for the relevant 
Series set out in the table below (in respect of each Series, the Early 
Tender Payment) in addition to the relevant Purchase Price and Accrued 
Interest Payment, all as further described in the Tender Offer 
Memorandum. The relevant Purchase Price and Early Tender Payment in 
respect of each Series are referred to in this announcement as, in 
respect of such Series, the Total Early Tender Consideration.

----------------------------------------------------  -------------------------------------------------- 
 
 
   The Issuer currently intends to only accept valid tenders of Notes 
pursuant to any Offer if the Extraordinary Resolutions (as described 
below) for all three Series are passed, although the Issuer reserves the 
right (in its sole discretion) to accept valid tenders of Notes of a 
Series in the circumstances where the Extraordinary Resolution(s) for 
one or more Series is (or are) not passed, or to accept valid tenders of 
Notes of one or more Series for purchase but not the other Series and 
may make any such decision for any reason. 
 
   If the Issuer decides to accept valid tenders of Notes pursuant to one 
or more of the Offers, the Issuer will accept for purchase all of the 
Notes of each Series that are the subject of such Offer(s) that are 
validly tendered and there will be no scaling of any tenders of Notes of 
such Series for purchase. 
 
   Details of the Proposals 
 
   The Issuer is also separately inviting the holders of each Series to 
approve certain modifications to the relevant Conditions to provide for 
the Issuer to redeem (the Issuer Early Redemption) all, but not some 
only, of the Notes of such Series that remain outstanding (if any) on 
completion of the relevant Offer, at an early redemption amount (in 
respect of each Series, the Early Redemption Amount) set out in the 
table below plus Accrued Interest. If the Proposal for any Series is 
implemented, such Series shall be automatically redeemed without any 
further action being required to be taken by the Issuer, the Company or 
the holder of the relevant Notes on the date (in respect of each Series, 
the Early Redemption Date) specified in the relevant Supplemental Trust 
Deed, expected to be 22 June 2021 (assuming no adjournment is needed for 
the relevant Meeting(s) (as defined below)). 
 
 
 
 
Notes                                                 Early Redemption Amount (expressed as a percentage

----------------------------------------------------  -------------------------------------------------- 
 
 
   Notice (the Notice) of separate meetings (together the Meetings) of the 
Noteholders to be held (via teleconference) on 18 June 2021, and at the 
times specified in the Notice, has been published on or around the date 
of this announcement in accordance with the Trust Deed by delivery to 
the Clearing Systems for communication to Direct Participants. 
 
   At each Meeting, the Noteholders of the relevant Series will be asked to 
consider and, if thought fit, pass an extraordinary resolution as set 
out in the Notice (each an Extraordinary Resolution), which will provide, 
among other things, for the Trustee to be authorised, directed and 
requested to concur in and execute the Supplemental Trust Deed in 
respect of the relevant Series to effect the necessary modifications 
pursuant to such Extraordinary Resolution, which will implement the 
relevant Proposal. 
 
   If passed, an Extraordinary Resolution shall be binding on all 
Noteholders of the relevant Series, whether present or not at the 
relevant Meeting and whether or not voting. The implementation of the 
Extraordinary Resolution in respect of any Series, if passed, is 
conditional on the acceptance for purchase by the Issuer of the Notes of 
the relevant Series that have been validly tendered in the Offer 
applicable to such Series. 
 
   Any Noteholder who does not wish, or is not able, to tender its Notes 
for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer may be eligible, to the 
extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations, to receive the 
early consent fee for the relevant Series set out in the table below (in 
respect of each Series, the Early Consent Fee). In order to be eligible 
for the relevant Early Consent Fee, Noteholders must deliver, or arrange 
to have delivered on their behalf, a valid Voting Only Instruction in 
favour of the relevant Proposal that is received by the Tender and 
Information Agent by the Early Tender Deadline (and which is not 
subsequently revoked (in the limited circumstances in which such 
revocation is permitted)). Any Noteholder who submits a valid Voting 
Only Instruction against the relevant Proposal will not be eligible for 
the relevant Early Consent Fee, irrespective of whether such Voting Only 
Instruction is received by the Tender and Information Agent by the Early 
Tender Deadline. For the avoidance of doubt, any Noteholder who has 
submitted a valid Voting Only Instruction in favour of the relevant 
Proposal by the Early Tender Deadline and is eligible for the relevant 
Early Consent Fee will not be eligible for the relevant Purchase Price, 
Accrued Interest Payment or Early Tender Payment pursuant to the 
relevant Offer. 
 
 
 
 
Notes                                                 Early Consent Fee (expressed as a percentage of the 
                                                       nominal amount of the relevant Notes) 
----------------------------------------------------  ---------------------------------------------------

 XS1824462896) 
----------------------------------------------------  --------------------------------------------------- 
 
 
   Where payable, the relevant Early Consent Fee will be paid by the Issuer 
to relevant Noteholders on the Settlement Date in the same manner as the 
payment of the relevant Purchase Price is made to eligible Noteholders 
(subject to the right of the Issuer to amend such date of payment to 
follow any adjourned Meeting for the relevant Series, if required, and 
otherwise as set out in the Tender Offer Memorandum). 
 
   By either (i) submitting a Tender Instruction in respect of the relevant 
Offer or (ii) submitting a Voting Only Instruction in respect of the 
relevant Proposal, that in either case is received by the Tender and 
Information Agent by 5.00 p.m. (London time) on 15 June 2021 (the Voting 
Deadline), Noteholders will automatically instruct the Agent to appoint 
one or more representatives of the Tender and Information Agent as their 
proxy to vote (a) in the case of Tender Instructions, in favour of, or 
(b) in the case of Voting Only Instructions, in favour of or against (as 
specified in the relevant Voting Only Instruction) the relevant 
Extraordinary Resolution at the relevant Meeting. It will not be 
possible to validly tender Notes in the Offers or to validly submit 
Voting Only Instructions in the Proposals without at the same time 
giving such instructions to the Agent. 
 
   Quorum and Voting 
 
   The quorum required for each Meeting to consider the relevant 
Extraordinary Resolution is one or more persons present and holding or 
representing in the aggregate not less than two-thirds of the aggregate 
nominal amount of the relevant Series for the time being outstanding. In 
the event the necessary quorum for an Extraordinary Resolution is not 
obtained at the relevant Meeting, such Meeting will be adjourned. At any 
adjourned Meeting one or more persons present and holding or 
representing in the aggregate not less than one-quarter of the aggregate 
nominal amount of Notes of the relevant Series for the time being 
outstanding will form a quorum. To be passed at the relevant Meeting 
(including any adjourned such Meeting), an Extraordinary Resolution 
requires a majority consisting of not less than three-quarters of the 
votes cast at such Meeting. 
 
   If passed, an Extraordinary Resolution shall be binding on all 
Noteholders of the relevant Series, whether present or not at the 
relevant Meeting and whether or not voting. The implementation of the 
Extraordinary Resolution in respect of any Series, if passed, is 
conditional on the acceptance for purchase by the Issuer of the Notes of 
the relevant Series that have been validly tendered in the Offer 
applicable to such Series. 
 
   General 
 
   Under the Offers and the Proposals, all Tender Instructions and Voting 
Only Instructions will be irrevocable except in the limited 
circumstances described in the Tender Offer Memorandum. Tender 
Instructions must be submitted in respect of a minimum nominal amount of 
EUR100,000 (being the minimum denomination of each Series), and may be 
submitted in integral multiples of EUR1,000 thereafter. Voting Only 
Instructions must be submitted in respect of a minimum nominal amount of 
EUR1,000. A separate Tender Instruction or Voting Only Instruction in 
respect of the relevant Proposal must be submitted in respect of each 
Series.
