NOTES

Special Resolutions

Although the Law provides for the passing of the approval of the merger or compromise, subject to court approval, by simple majority of the members, the Articles provide for the concept of a “special resolution” for the proposed Merger.

Holders of Shares in certificated form

All holders (the “Shareholders”) of Ordinary Shares in the Company (the “Shares”) have the right to attend, speak and vote at the Meeting. A Shareholder is entitled to appoint one or more proxies to exercise all or any of his or her rights to attend and to speak and vote in his or her place. A proxy need not be a Shareholder of the Company. Entitlement to attend and vote at the Meeting, and the number of votes which may be cast at the Meeting, will be determined by reference to the Company’s register of Shareholders at 10:00 a.m. Cyprus time on 10 August 2022 or, if the Meeting is adjourned, 48 hours before the time fixed for the adjourned Meeting (as the case may be).

Registered Shareholders holding shares in certificated form should complete the form of proxy provided with the Notice of Meeting as set out in Appendix B to this notice (the “Form of Proxy”). The Form of Proxy must be deposited in hard copy form by courier or by hand at the Company’s registered office at 155 Arch. Makariou III, PROTEAS HOUSE, 5th  Floor, 3026, Limassol, Cyprus or by email to ekaterina.sec@fix-price.com.com.cy and aloucaidou@sofocleous.com.cy no later than 10:00 a.m. Cyprus time on 10 August 2022 or, if the Meeting is adjourned, 48 hours before the time fixed for the adjourned Meeting (as the case may be).

The Form of Proxy must be signed and dated by the Shareholder or his/her attorney duly authorised in writing. If Shares in the Company are held by a nominee(s), a form(s) of proxy must be completed and signed by the nominee(s). If the Shareholder is a company, it may execute under its common seal or under the hand of an officer or attorney so authorised. Any power of attorney or any other authority under which the Form of Proxy is signed (or a duly certified copy of such power or authority) must be included with the Form of Proxy.

When two or more valid but differing appointments of proxy are delivered or received for the same Share for use at the same Meeting, the one which is last validly delivered or received (regardless of its date or the date of its execution) shall be treated as replacing and revoking the other or others as regards that share. If the Company is unable to determine which appointment was last validly delivered or received, none of them shall be treated as valid in respect of that Share.

Depositary Interest Holders

1.       Depositary Interest Holders may vote using the Form of Instruction provided. . Forms of Instruction, duly completed by Depositary Interest Holders, must reach the Depositary by no later than 12:00 pm EST  on 8 August 2022 or, if the Meeting is adjourned, 72 hours before the time fixed for the adjourned Meeting (as the case may be).  In case there are any questions please contact olena.smirnova@bnymellon.com and adrproxy@bnymellon.com.

2.       Depositary Interest Holders may also submit voting instructions for the Meeting (or any adjournment of the Meeting) by following the procedures described in the CREST manual. CREST personal members or other CREST sponsored members (and those CREST members who have appointed a voting service provider(s)) should refer to their CREST sponsor or voting services provider(s), who will be able to take the appropriate action on their behalf.

3.       In order for an instruction made by means of CREST to be valid, the appropriate CREST message (a “CREST Voting Instruction”) must be properly authenticated in accordance with the specifications of Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited (“Euroclear”) and must contain the information required for such instructions, as described in the CREST Manual (available via www.euroclear.com). The message, regardless of whether it relates to the appointment of a proxy, or to an amendment to an instruction given to a previously appointed proxy, in order to be valid, must be transmitted as instructed by Euroclear. For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp applied to the CREST Voting Instruction by the CREST applications host) from which the issuer’s agent is able to retrieve the CREST Voting Instruction by enquiry to CREST in the manner prescribed by CREST.

4.       CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers should note that Euroclear does not make available special procedures in CREST for any particular messages. Normal system timings and limitations will therefore apply in relation to the transmission of CREST Voting Instructions. It is the responsibility of the CREST member concerned to take (or, if the CREST member is a CREST personal member or sponsored member or has appointed a voting service provider(s), to procure that the CREST sponsor or voting service provider(s) take(s)) such action as shall be necessary to ensure that a CREST Voting Instruction is transmitted by means of the CREST service by any particular time. In this connection, CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers are referred, in particular, to those sections of the CREST Manual concerning practical limitations of the CREST system and timings.

5.       The Company may treat as invalid a CREST Voting Instruction in the circumstances set out in Regulation 35(5)(a) of the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 2001.
