Basis of access
The Information is made available in good faith and does not constitute an offer to sell or otherwise dispose of or an invitation or solicitation of any offer to purchase or subscribe for any securities pursuant to the Offer or otherwise in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful.
The Information has been prepared for the purposes of complying with English law and the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers and the Information may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this information had been prepared in accordance with the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction outside of England and Wales.
The information contained on this Microsite speaks only at the date of the relevant document or announcement reproduced on this Microsite, and GVC and Ladbrokes Coral have, and accept, no responsibility or duty to update any such information, document or announcement and reserve the right to add to, remove or amend any information reproduced on this Microsite at any time.
Similarly, copies of the contents of the following pages (including documents posted thereon) are not being, and must not be, released or otherwise forwarded, distributed or sent in or into a Restricted Jurisdiction and persons receiving such documents (including custodians, nominees and trustees) must not distribute or send them in, into or from a Restricted Jurisdiction.
If you are not permitted to view materials on this Microsite or are in any doubt as to whether you are permitted to view these materials, please exit this Microsite and seek independent advice. Neither GVC nor any of its advisors nor Ladbrokes Coral nor any of its advisers, assumes any responsibility for any violation by any person of any of these restrictions.

The Information, including information included or incorporated by reference, contains “forward-looking statements” concerning GVC and Ladbrokes Coral that are subject to risks and uncertainties. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “is subject to”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “targets”, “aims”, “projects”, “possible” or “potential” or words or terms of similar substance or the negative thereof, as well as variations of such phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “should”, “would”, “might”, or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied in the forward-looking statements. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond GVC and Ladbrokes Coral’s ability to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions, changes in regulatory environment and the behaviour of other market participants. Neither GVC nor Ladbrokes Coral can give any assurance that such forward-looking statements will prove to have been correct. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of the relevant Information. Neither GVC nor Ladbrokes Coral undertakes any obligation to update or revise publicly any of these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement in the Microsite is intended to constitute a profit forecast for any period and no statement should be interpreted to mean that earnings or earnings per share will necessarily be greater or lesser than those for the relevant preceding financial periods for GVC and/or Ladbrokes Coral (as appropriate).
