Statement in Relation to Engagement Policy under the Shareholder Rights Directive

Pursuant to Article 3g of the Shareholders’ Rights Directive II (“SRD II”) and Section 1110G of the European Union (Shareholders’ Rights) Regulations 2020 (the “SRD II Regulations”), the HIL is required to (or to publicly disclose on its website or by way of other means accessible online, a clear and reasoned explanation why it has failed to) develop an engagement policy describing how it incorporates engagement with investee companies (being EU companies listed on a regulated market, as defined in SRD II), into its investment strategies. We have consulted legal advice and confirmed that a shareholder engagement policy (“SEP”) would not be required at this time as Hamon Ireland Limited (HIL) does not fall within the scope of the Irish regulations implementing the European Shareholders’ Rights Directive II. Should this change in the future, a SEP could be put in place at that time to address the requirements.
