    As announced by Morgan Stanley for and on behalf of the Offeror on 1 November 2021, the Minimum Acceptance Condition of the MGO (as set out in Section 2.6 of the Offer Document) had been satisfied and the MGO had therefore become and was declared unconditional in all respects on 1 November 2021.

    Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms in this Announcement shall bear the same meaning as set out in the Offer Document.

    As set out above, the MGO has closed at 5.30 p.m. (Singapore time) on 3 November 2021.

    Accordingly, the MGO is no longer open for acceptances and any acceptances received after 5.30 p.m. (Singapore time) on the Closing Date will be rejected.
