16.2 CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO ANNOUNCE

(a) If a Bidder, having announced the offer to be unconditional as to acceptances, fails by 3.30 pm on the relevant day to comply with any of the requirements of Paragraph 16.1, immediately thereafter any acceptor will be entitled to withdraw his acceptance. Subject to Paragraph 30.6, this right of withdrawal may be terminated not less than 8 days after the relevant day by the Bidder confirming, if such is the case, that the offer is still unconditional as to acceptances and complying with Paragraph 16.1.
(b) For the purpose of Paragraph 30.4, the offer must remain open for acceptance for not less than 14 days after the date of such confirmation and compliance.
