The Information contained on this Microsite does not constitute an offer to sell or otherwise dispose of or an invitation or solicitation of any offer to purchase or subscribe for any securities pursuant to the Offer or otherwise in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful. The Offer would be made solely by means of an offer or scheme document which would contain the full terms and conditions of such Offer, including details on how it may be accepted. Any decision made in relation to the Offer should be made only on the basis of the information provided in any such document.
This Information is not directed at or intended to be accessible by persons resident in, or otherwise subject to the laws of, any Restricted Jurisdiction.
Viewing the Information you are seeking to access may be restricted under securities laws in certain jurisdictions. All persons resident outside of the United Kingdom (the "UK") who wish to view the Information contained on this Microsite must first satisfy themselves that they are not subject to any local requirements which prohibit or restrict them from doing so and should inform themselves about, and observe, any legal or regulatory requirements applicable in their jurisdiction.

This Microsite contains Information that has been prepared for the purposes of complying with English law and the Code, and the Information disclosed may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this Information had been prepared in accordance with the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction outside of England and Wales.

Additional U.S. information
The Offer relates to the securities of an English company admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange and is subject to UK procedural and disclosure requirements that are different from those of the United States. Any financial statements or other financial information included on this Microsite may have been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards that may not be comparable to the financial statements of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. It may be difficult for US holders of shares to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under US federal securities laws in connection with the Offer, since Meggitt is located in a country other than the United States, and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of countries other than the United States. US holders of shares may not be able to sue Meggitt or its respective officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel Meggitt and its affiliates to subject themselves to the jurisdiction or judgment of a US state or federal court.
The Offer may be implemented by way of a scheme of arrangement provided for under English company law (a "Scheme"). A transaction effected by means of a Scheme is not subject to the tender offer rules or the proxy solicitation rules under the US Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Accordingly, the Offer may be subject to the disclosure requirements of, and practices applicable in, the UK to Schemes, which differ from the disclosure requirements of the US tender offer and proxy solicitation rules. However, if, in the future, the Bidder were to exercise its right to implement the Offer by way of a takeover offer, such offer would be required to be made in compliance with applicable US securities laws and regulations.
This Microsite and the Information contained in it may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and businesses of the Bidder and Bidder Group (being the Bidder and its subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings from time to time) and Meggitt and the Meggitt Group (being Meggitt and its subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings from time to time) following the implementation of the Offer.
All statements other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements of future expectations that are based on management's current expectations and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied in these statements. Forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements concerning the potential exposure of the Meggitt Group and/or Bidder Group to market risks and statements expressing management's expectations, beliefs, estimates, forecasts, projections and assumptions, including as to future potential cost savings, synergies, earnings, cash flow, return on capital employed, production and prospects. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of terms such as "anticipate", "believe", "could", "should", "estimate", "expect", "goals", "intend", "might", "may", "objectives", "outlook", "plan", "probably", "project", "risks", "seek", "should", "target", "will" or variations of such terms.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements included on this Microsite. These factors include, but are not limited to: (a) the ability to obtain requisite regulatory and shareholder approvals and the satisfaction of other conditions pertaining to the Offer; (b) changes in tax rates, interest rates and currency fluctuations; (c) changes in demand for the Meggitt Group's products and the behaviour of other market participants; (d) the degree of competition in the geographic and business areas in which Meggitt and the Bidder operate; (e) market-related risks and developments pertaining to the industry in which the Meggitt Group operates; (f) the policies and actions of regulatory authorities; (g) the ability of the Meggitt Group to successfully retain key employees; (h) changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including changes in the financial markets; (i) the impact of external events, such as pandemics or natural disasters, including the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and changes to current expectations as to the rate of economic recovery therefrom; (j) the timing, impact and risks associated with any future acquisitions, combinations, divestments, developments, or product launches and innovations within relevant industries; (k) failure to fully realise any anticipated synergies, cost savings and other anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction when expected or at all; (l) the impact of a health and safety incident resulting in serious illness, injury or death to a Meggitt Group employee and/or a disruption to the Meggitt Group's operations; (m) the impact of a cyber security breach; and (n) changes in applicable laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which the Meggitt Group operates.
All forward-looking statements contained on this Microsite are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The reader should also consider the additional factors that may affect future results and developments which are contained in Meggitt's annual report and accounts, interim results and trading updates (available on Meggitt's corporate website at www.meggitt.com/investors/).
Each forward-looking statement speaks only as at the specified date of the relevant document within which the statement is contained. None of Meggitt, the Meggitt Group, the Bidder and the Bidder Group undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. In light of these risks, results could differ materially from those stated, implied or inferred from the forward-looking statements contained on this Microsite.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement contained or referred to on this Microsite is intended to be a profit forecast.
