TKO 11.2.4 Guidance

If statements in relation to the duration of a Bid such as "the Bid will not be extended beyond a specified date unless it is unconditional as to acceptances" ("no extension statements") are included in documents sent to shareholders in the Target, or are made by or on behalf of a Bidder, its Directors, officials or advisers, and not withdrawn immediately if incorrect, then only in exceptional circumstances will the DFSA allow a Bidder subsequently to extend its Bid beyond the stated date except where the right to do so has been specifically reserved.
