Notice is hereby given that, on 19 May 2022, a Petition was presented to the Court of Session in Edinburgh (the “Court”) by abrdn plc, a public company incorporated under the Companies Acts and registered in Scotland under the company number SC286832 and with its registered office at 1 George Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH2 2LL (the “Company”) seeking an order confirming the cancellation of its capital redemption reserve account (amounting to £1,059 million as at 18 May 2022) (the “Cancellation”), which was approved by a special resolution of the Company passed on 18 May 2022. On 25 May 2022, the Court ordered (i) that the Petition be advertised once in each of The Edinburgh Gazette, The Scotsman and The Financial Times (including its international editions), and (ii) that any person claiming an interest in the Cancellation lodge Answers to the Petition, if so advised, at the offices of the Court, 2 Parliament Square, Edinburgh EH1 1RQ within 21 days of the publication of the last of those advertisements, which is expected to be on 21 June 2022. Any such person may wish to seek independent legal advice. In accordance with its practice, the Court is also likely to consider any other objections which are made to it, in writing or in person at the hearing of the Petition to confirm the Cancellation. That hearing is expected to take place at the Court on 1 July 2022. Should that date change, the new date will be advertised on the website of abrdn plc.
