(b) the Stabilisation Manage knows or ought reasonably to have known that the falsity in the market price was attributable in whole or in part to any conduct by a Person who was in breach of the Market Abuse provisions; or
(c) any requirements of a Recognised Investment Exchange or any other exchange have not been complied with.
