For these purposes, (A) in the United Kingdom a “retail investor” means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of UK law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended, the “EUWA”); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended, the “FSMA”) and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended, the “Insurance Distribution Directive”), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of UK law by virtue of the EUWA; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (as amended, the “Prospectus Regulation”) as it forms part of UK law by virtue of the EUWA; (B) in the EEA, a "retail investor" means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, “MiFID II”); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the Insurance Distribution Directive, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation; and (C) in Switzerland, a “retail investor” means a person who is not a professional client as defined in Article 4 Paragraph 3 of the Swiss Federal Act on Financial Services (the “FinSA”). Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “PRIIPs Regulation”), including the PRIIPs Regulation as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (the “UK PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the offer warrants and offer shares or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the UK, EEA or in Switzerland has been prepared and, therefore, offering or selling the offer warrants and offer shares or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the UK, EEA or in Switzerland may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation, the PRIIPs Regulation or the FinSA, as applicable.
