Shareholders, whose shares are held in certificated form, will be sent a letter of transmittal on or before the Implementation Date. The letter of transmittal should be signed and returned, together with the share certificates representing that shareholder’s MDM shares.  The merger consideration will be paid as soon as reasonably practicable following the Implementation Date after receipt of the signed letter of transmittal and surrendered share certificates.

Depository Interest holders, whose shares are held in uncertificated form, will have their merger consideration paid through CREST as soon as reasonably practicable following the Implementation Date.
As announced on 25 September 2014 it is expected that trading in MDM’s ordinary shares on AIM will cease at the close of business on 22 October 2014 with the cancellation of the Company’s admission to trading on AIM being effective from 7:00 am on 23 October 2014.
