Approval of acquisition and authorisation of the Board of Directors to issue new shares On 26 April 2001, Capio UK plc, a wholly owned subsidiary within the Capio Group, made a public offer to acquire all shares in Community Hospitals PLC (the "Offer"). The Offer is conditional, inter alia, on the passing of a resolution by at least two thirds of the votes cast and represented at the shareholders' meeting to approve the Offer and to authorise the Board to issue new shares in connection with the partial refinancing of the acquisition, to be undertaken following such time as the Offer becomes or is declared unconditional in all respects. Shareholders representing 22.2 per cent of Capio's issued share capital and votes have irrevocably committed to vote in favour of this resolution. The authorisation, which may be used on one or more occasions during the period until the next ordinary shareholders' meeting, empowers the Board to, upon the Offer becoming unconditional, issue shares with or without preferential rights for the shareholders, in order to raise up to the Swedish Krona equivalent of GBP 100 million in cash. The Board proposes that the shareholders' meeting resolves to approve the Offer and to authorise the Board to issue shares as set out above. A resolution on this proposal is valid only if passed by at least two thirds of the votes cast and of the shares represented at the shareholders' meeting. Other The Board's complete proposal, including an information memorandum regarding the Offer and documents according to Section 4 Article 4 of the Companies Act, will be held available for the shareholders at Capio from 7 May, 2001, and be sent to the shareholders that so require.
