The Company announces that, following due notice on behalf of the Founder Shareholders, Selina Sagayam is no longer their nominated appointee to the Company's Board under the terms of a relationship agreement ("Agreement)" between the Company, the Founder Shareholders, and the GS Shareholders; she has, therefore, resigned her position with effect from today's date.
The Agreement entitles the Founder Shareholders (subject to prescribed notice) to remove an existing, and nominate a replacement, director to the Board for as long as their combined shareholding in the Company exceeds 5%. The Company has been informed by the Founder Shareholders that they do not intend to nominate a replacement director at this time.
For the purposes of this announcement, the "GS Shareholders" are entities represented by Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division and Goldman Sachs & Co LLC. The "Founder Shareholders" are Neil Utley (and certain members of his immediate family), Edward Fitzmaurice, Keith Charlton, and Richard Brewster.
