38.6 CHANGES TO THE EXPECTED SCHEME TIMETABLE

(a) Any adjournment of a shareholder meeting or court sanction hearing, or a decision by the Target board to propose such an adjournment, must be announced promptly by the Target in accordance with the requirements of Paragraph 2.9. If the meeting or hearing is adjourned to a specified date, the announcement should set out the relevant details. If the meeting or hearing is adjourned without at the same time specifying a date for the adjourned meeting, a further announcement should be made in accordance with the requirements of Paragraph 2.9 once the new date has been set.
(b) Similarly, except with the consent of the Panel, any other change to the expected timetable of events set out in the scheme circular must be announced promptly by the Bidder or Target (as appropriate) in accordance with the requirements of Paragraph 2.9.
(c) In all cases, the Panel should be consulted as to whether notice of an adjournment of any meeting or hearing or any other delay in, or change to, the expected timetable should, in addition, be sent to Target shareholders and persons with information rights.
