Please note that the company is not the subject of a take-over attempt, hostile or otherwise, and that approaches such as those currently being experienced by our shareholders are usually made by unauthorised companies and individuals. The approaches can be very persistent and extremely persuasive. We advise our shareholders to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a premium or offers of free reports into the company.
If you receive any unsolicited investment advice or any offers to purchase your shares:
Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation
Check that they are properly authorised by the FSA before getting involved. You can check at www.fsa.gov.uk/fsaregister
The FSA also maintains on its website a list of unauthorised overseas firms who are targeting, or have targeted, UK Investors and any approach from such organisations should be reported to the FSA so that this list can be kept up to date and any other appropriate action can be considered. If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you would not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Service Compensation Scheme
Do not provide any personal details to callers e.g. bank details, full address
Do not send your share certificates to anyone
Please report the approach to the FSA by completing an online form at www.fsa.gov.uk/Pages/Doing/Regulated/Law/Alerts/form.shtml
