The purchase of shares from the Co-op as part of the Buyback constitutes a related party transaction for the Company under the Euronext Listing Rules ("Euronext LR") and the FCA Listing Rules ("FCA LR"). Pursuant to paragraph 11.1.15 (2)(a) of the Euronext LR and paragraph 11.1.10 (2)(b) of the FCA LR, Davy Corporate Finance confirms that the terms of the Buyback with the related party, are fair and reasonable as far as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.
