Notice of order granting provisional relief in aid of a foreign proceeding pursuant to Chapter 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code

Reference is made to the notice dated 14 January 2016 notifying holders of the Notes that the foreign representative of the Company had filed (i) a petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court (the "Petition") seeking recognition and enforcement in the United States of a scheme of arrangement between the Company and the holders of the Notes under Section 899 of the English Companies Act 2006 (the "Scheme") as a "foreign nonmain proceeding" and (ii) a motion for provisional relief seeking enforcement of the Scheme on a provisional basis pending the resolution of the Petition. The Scheme was sanctioned by the High Court of England and Wales on 29 January 2016.

Notice is hereby given that on 29 January 2016 the United States Bankruptcy Court ordered that the Scheme should be given full force and effect in the U.S on a provisional basis pending the recognition hearing scheduled for 9 February 2016. A copy of the order dated 29 January 2016 is available on the Scheme Website at At the recognition hearing, the Bankruptcy Court will consider whether to recognise the Scheme as a "foreign nonmain proceeding" and permanently recognise the Scheme in the United States.
