The Public Offering has been structured in a manner which makes it exempt from the obligation to publish a prospectus approved by the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (Dk.

Finanstilsynet) or by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Sw. Finansinspektionen). Additionally, any offer of Offer Shares in Denmark and Sweden under the Private Placement will be made pursuant to an exemption under the Prospectus Regulation from the requirement to publish a prospectus.
