Access to this area of the Rockhopper website may be restricted under securities laws in certain jurisdictions. This notice requires you to confirm certain matters (including that you are not resident in such a jurisdiction), before you may obtain access to the information on this area of the website. These materials are not directed at, or accessible by, persons resident in any jurisdiction where to do so would constitute a violation of the relevant laws of that jurisdiction.
This area of the Rockhopper website (the “Micro-Site”) contains announcements, documents and information (the “materials”) published by Rockhopper Exploration plc (“Rockhopper”) and/or Mediterranean Oil & Gas plc (“MOG”) relating to the recommended offer by Rockhopper to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of MOG (the proposal, together with any ancillary matters relating to its implementation, being referred to below as the “Recommended Offer”).
If you would like to view the Micro-Site, please read this notice carefully. This notice applies to all persons who view the Micro-Site and, depending on where you are located, may affect your rights or responsibilities.
The materials contained in this Micro-Site are made available in good faith and for information purposes only and speak only as at the date of the relevant document or announcement as reproduced on this Micro-Site. The materials are made available subject to the terms and conditions set out below. Any person seeking access to the Micro-Site represents and warrants to Rockhopper that they are doing so for information purposes only. As the Recommended Offer progresses, the information contained on the Micro-Site may be altered or updated, but Rockhopper does not undertake to update any materials on this Micro-Site, except to the extent legally required to.
Rockhopper reserves the right to amend or update this notice at any time and you should, therefore, read it in full each time you visit the Micro-Site.
The materials on this Micro-Site have been prepared in connection with the Recommended Offer pursuant to and for the purposes of complying with the laws of England and Wales and the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers. The information disclosed here may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if the materials had been prepared in accordance with the laws of any other jurisdiction.
As a consequence of legal restrictions, the release, publication or distribution of information contained on the Micro-Site in certain jurisdictions or to certain persons may be restricted or unlawful. All persons resident or located outside the United Kingdom who wish to view the Micro-Site must first satisfy themselves that they are not subject to any local requirements that prohibit or restrict them from viewing the Micro-Site and should inform themselves of, and observe, any applicable legal or regulatory requirements applicable in their jurisdiction. If you are resident or located in a country that renders the accessing of the Micro-Site or parts thereof illegal, whether or not subject to making certain notifications or taking other action, or if you are in any doubt as to these matters you should not view the Micro-Site. Unless otherwise determined by Rockhopper and permitted by applicable law and regulation, it is not intended that the materials on the Micro-Site be accessible by persons resident or located in any jurisdiction where to do so would constitute a violation of the relevant laws of such jurisdiction.
You should not forward, transmit or show the announcements, information or documents contained in the Micro-Site to any person. In particular, you should not forward or transmit the announcements, information or documents contained therein to any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.
The contents of this Micro-Site may not be downloaded either in whole or in part by any person in any jurisdiction where to do so would constitute a violation of the relevant laws of such jurisdiction. Nothing on, or which can be downloaded from, the Micro-Site constitutes an offer to sell or an invitation or solicitation of any offer to purchase or subscribe for any securities or solicitation of any votes attaching to securities which are the subject of the Recommended Offer in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful.
The materials on this Micro-Site, including information included or incorporated by reference, may contain certain forward-looking statements concerning the Recommended Offer, Rockhopper and MOG. These statements are based on the current expectation of the management of Rockhopper and are naturally subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. These forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “will”, “may”, “should”, “could”, “would”, “can”, “believes”, “intends”, “expects”, “indicates”, “anticipates” or similar words or terms or by discussions of, inter alia, strategies, goals or plans. Forward-looking statements include statements relating to the following: (i) future capital expenditures, expenses, revenues, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, dividend policy, losses and future prospects; (ii) business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of Rockhopper’s or MOG’s operations and potential synergies resulting from the Recommended Offer; and (iii) the effects of government regulation on Rockhopper’s or MOG’s business.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. There are various factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the satisfaction of any conditions to the Recommended Offer, whether or not the Recommended Offer is successful, future market developments, behaviour of the other market participants and changes in the legal or regulatory framework. Due to such uncertainties, Rockhopper cannot give any assurance that any forward-looking statement will prove to be correct in the future. Rockhopper and MOG disclaim any obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements (except to the extent legally required). The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
In relation to the materials contained in the Micro-Site, the only responsibility accepted by the directors of Rockhopper (the “Responsible Persons”) is for the correctness and fairness of its reproduction or presentation unless any responsibility statement in any relevant document expressly provides otherwise. The Responsible Persons do not accept responsibility for information relating to MOG or members of its group.
The Responsible Persons are responsible in the terms set out above solely for the relevant information contained in the Micro-Site and not for any other information on the Rockhopper website which you may visit on leaving the Micro-Site.
