Dr. Reddy's Declares Offer For OctoPlus Unconditional

Consequences of the Offer

The acquisition of Shares by the Offeror pursuant to the Offer and outside the Offer will, among other things, reduce the number of Shareholders and the number of Shares that might otherwise be traded publicly, and (i) will thus adversely affect the liquidity and (ii) may affect the market value of the remaining Shares.

The Offeror intends to acquire all shares in the Company. In order to achieve this, the Offeror aims to increase its interest in the Company to a level which allows it to initiate a takeover squeeze-out procedure in accordance with article 2:359c of the Dutch Civil Code or a statutory squeeze-out procedure in accordance with article 2:92a or 2:201a of the Dutch Civil Code. In addition to the Post Closing Acceptance Period the Offeror may therefore decide to purchase Shares on the market or through private transactions. In addition, the Offeror may pursue one or more of the measures referred to in Section 6.11.3 of the Offer Memorandum.

The Offeror and the Company will jointly request NYSE Euronext Amsterdam to terminate the listing and trading of the Shares on NYSE Euronext Amsterdam as soon as the relevant requirements have been met.
