Where interests in shares of any class of the Target carrying 10% or more of the voting rights currently exercisable at a class meeting of that class have been acquired by a Bidder and any person acting in concert with it in exchange for securities in the three months prior to the commencement of and during the offer period, such securities will normally be required to be offered to all other holders of shares of that class.

Unless the vendor or other party to the transaction giving rise to the interest is required to hold the securities received or receivable until either the offer has lapsed or the offer consideration has been sent to accepting shareholders, an obligation to make an offer in cash or to provide a cash alternative will also arise under Paragraph 11.1.
