Important information for US investors
The materials do not constitute an offer to acquire or exchange securities in the United States. The Offer relates to the shares of an English company and is expected to be made by means of a contractual takeover offer under UK company law; although the Offeror has reserved the right to switch to a scheme of arrangement. The Offer is not subject to the tender offer rules or the proxy solicitation rules under the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "US Exchange Act"). Accordingly, the Offer is subject to the disclosure requirements and practices applicable in the UK to contractual takeover offers, which differ from the disclosure requirements of US tender offer and proxy solicitation rules. The Offer will be made in the United States by the Offeror and no one else.
The financial information included in certain documents contained in this Microsite has been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards, and thus may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
The receipt of consideration pursuant to any offer by a US holder of Collagen shares may be a taxable transaction for US federal income tax purposes and under applicable US state and local, as well as foreign and other, tax laws. Each Collagen shareholder is urged to consult his independent professional adviser immediately regarding the tax consequences of any acceptance of the Offer (or of the Offer becoming effective). Furthermore, the payment and settlement procedure with respect to the Offer will comply with the relevant UK rules, which differ from the United States payment and settlement procedures, particularly with regards to the date of payment of consideration.
The materials contained in this Microsite do not constitute an offer of securities for sale in the United States. No offer to acquire securities or to exchange securities for other securities has been made, or will be made, directly or indirectly, in or into, or by the use of the mails of, or by any means or instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce or any facilities of a national securities exchange of, the United States or any other country in which such offer may not be made other than: (i) in accordance with the tender offer requirements under the US Exchange Act, or the securities laws of such other country, as the case may be, or: (ii) pursuant to an available exemption from such requirements.
Neither the US Securities and Exchange Commission nor any US state securities commission has approved or disapproved any offer or passed comment upon the adequacy or completeness of any of the Information contained in this Microsite. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.
This Microsite may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the Offer and the financial condition, results of operations and business of, Collagen or the Offeror and certain plans and objectives of the Offeror with respect to them. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about our beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. The words "anticipate", "target", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "goal", "believe", "hope", "aims", "continue", "will", "may", "should", "would", "could" and similar expressions, among others, generally identify forward-looking statements.
These forward-looking statements (including those relating to the consummation of the Offer and the anticipated benefits of it) are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the possibility that any of the conditions to the Offer will not be satisfied, adverse effects on the market price of Collagen's ordinary shares and on Collagen’s operating results because of a failure to complete the Offer, negative effects relating to announcement of the Offer or the completion of the Offer on the market price of Collagen ordinary shares, significant transaction costs and/or unknown liabilities, changes in global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax laws, regulations, rates and policies, future business combinations or disposals and competitive developments.
These forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions and assessments made in light of Collagen's or, as the case may be, the Offeror’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, business strategies, operating environment, future developments and other factors considered appropriate. The factors described in the context of such forward-looking statements in this Microsite could cause the Offeror's plans with respect to Collagen, Collagen's or the Offeror's actual results, performance or achievements, industry results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct and persons reading this Microsite are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as at the date of the relevant document or announcement reproduced on this Microsite. Collagen and the Offeror expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statements as a result of subsequent events or developments, except as required by law.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement contained or referred to in this Microsite is intended to be a profit forecast.
