Henderson Group notes that in seeking approval for the issue of up to 1,511,000 New Janus Henderson Shares to the current members of the Janus board of directors (who are expected to join the Henderson Group’s board on completion of the Merger) and their respective related parties in connection with the Merger (the “Proposed Share Issuance to Janus Nominated Directors”), ASX Limited (“ASX”) has granted Henderson Group a waiver of ASX Listing Rule 10.13.3 to the extent necessary to permit the Notice of Extraordinary Meeting to state that the Proposed Share Issuance to Janus Nominated Directors may take place later than one month after the date of the Extraordinary General Meeting. The waiver was granted on condition that the Proposed Share Issuance to Janus Nominated Directors takes place within 2 months from the date of the Extraordinary General Meeting and that the terms of this waiver from ASX are released to the market at the time that the Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting is released to the market.

 

In compliance with Listing Rule 9.6.1, a copy of the Circular has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.hemscott.com/nsm.do
