As anticipated, the Consent is subject to the payment of all taxes due in relation to the Transaction within 90 days of the receipt of the approval letter conveying the Consent.

The receipt of the Consent represents the satisfaction of a significant condition precedent for the Transaction.

The principal remaining conditions precedent for the Transaction relate to the execution of long-form documentation in relation to the Accugas debt restructuring and the Frontier Swap, following which the Transaction completion process is expected to commence.

This completion process will follow pre-agreed steps as set out in the legally binding Implementation Agreement which was signed in February 2019.

Further updates in relation to the outstanding conditions precedent and Transaction completion will be published as appropriate, and completion will be followed in due course by the publication of a Supplemental Admission Document.
