Failure to comply with any such restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

Accordingly, copies of this Announcement, the Offer Document, the Form of Acceptance and any other related document will not be, and must not be, directly or indirectly, mailed or otherwise distributed or sent in or into any Restricted Jurisdiction and persons in such Restricted Jurisdictions receiving such documents (including custodians, nominees and trustees) must not distribute or send them in, into or from such jurisdictions as doing so may violate the laws of such jurisdictions and may make invalid any purported acceptance of the Offer by persons in any such Restricted Jurisdiction. The receipt of cash pursuant to the Offer by Redx Shareholders may be a taxable transaction under applicable national, state or local, as well as foreign and other, tax laws. Each Redx Shareholder is urged to consult its independent professional adviser regarding the tax consequences of accepting the Offer. This Announcement has been prepared for the purpose of complying with English law, the rules of the London Stock Exchange and the Takeover Code and the information disclosed may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this Announcement had been prepared in accordance with the laws of jurisdictions outside England and Wales. The Offer will not be made, directly or indirectly, in or into, or by use of the mails, or by any means or instrumentality (including, without limitation, by means of telephone, facsimile, telex, internet or other forms of electronic communication) of interstate or foreign commerce of, or any facilities of a securities exchange of any Restricted Jurisdiction and the Offer will not be capable of acceptance by any such use, means, instrumentality or facility or from within any Restricted Jurisdiction.

Additional information for US investors The Offer is being made for shares of an English company that is not registered under the US Exchange Act of 1934 (the 'Exchange Act') and is subject to UK disclosure requirements, which are different from those of the United States. The Offer will not be submitted to the review or registration procedures of any regulator outside of the UK and has not been approved or recommended by any governmental securities regulator. The Offer is being made in reliance on the Tier 1 exemption from certain requirements of the US securities laws and is governed by laws, regulations and procedures of a non-US country that are different from those of the United States. Accordingly, the Offer will be subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights, offer timetable, settlement procedures and timing of payments, that are different from those applicable under US domestic tender offer procedures and law. To the extent, if any, that the Offer is subject to the US securities laws, they only apply to holders of Redx Shares in the United States and no other person has any claims under such laws. It may be difficult or impossible for US holders of Redx Shares to enforce their rights and claims, if any, arising out of the US federal securities laws, since Redx is located in a country other than the United States. US holders of Redx Shares may not be able to sue a non-US company or its officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of the US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel a non-US company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a US court's judgement. In accordance with normal United Kingdom practice and pursuant to Rule 14e-5(b) of the Exchange Act, Redmile or its nominees, or its brokers (acting as agents), may from time to time make certain purchases of, or arrangements to purchase, shares or other securities of Redx outside the US, other than pursuant to the Offer, before or during the period in which the Offer remains open for acceptance. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. Any information about such purchases or arrangements to purchase shall be disclosed as required in the UK, shall be reported to a Regulatory Information Service and shall be available on the London Stock Exchange website, www.londonstockexchange.com . The receipt of consideration by a US holder for the transfer of its Redx Shares pursuant to the Offer will likely be a taxable transaction for United States federal income tax purposes. Each Redx Shareholder is urged to consult his or her independent professional advisor immediately regarding the tax consequences of acceptance of the Offer applicable to them, including under applicable United States state and local, as well as overseas and other, tax laws.
