Publication of Supplementary Circular
Following the announcement of the half-year interim results of Prudential plc ("Prudential") for the six-month period ended 30 June 2021 on 11 August 2021, the Group announces that a supplementary circular (the " Supplementary Circular") relating to the demerger of Jackson Financial Inc. ("Jackson") from Prudential (the "Demerger") has been published today and will shortly be posted to Prudential's shareholders.
The Supplementary Circular relates solely to the half-year interim results of Prudential and is supplementary to and must be read in conjunction with the circular dated Friday 6 August 2021 (the "Circular"), previously sent to Shareholders and available on Prudential's website (http://www.prudentialplc.com/investors/shareholder-information/jackson-demerger-transaction-documents).
The Supplementary Circular is now available on Prudential's website (http://www.prudentialplc.com/investors/shareholder-information/jackson-demerger-transaction-documents). A copy of the Supplementary Circular has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for viewing at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
It remains the case that a general meeting relating to the Demerger will be held at Nomura, 1 Angel Lane, London EC4R 3AB at 10.00am London time (5.00pm Hong Kong / Singapore time) on Friday 27 August 2021. Further details are set out in the Circular and the notice of general meeting contained within it.
Subject to shareholder approval, it is expected that "when-issued"1 trading of the Jackson shares on the New York Stock Exchange will commence on Wednesday 1 September 2021, the Demerger will complete on Monday 13 September 2021, and that "regular way"2 trading of the Jackson shares on the New York Stock Exchange will commence on Monday 20 September 2021.
1 When-issued trading in the context of the Demerger refers to, in the period on or before the day on which the proposed in-specie distribution of shares of Class A common stock in Jackson (the "Jackson Shares") to effect the Demerger (the "Demerger Dividend") is declared, trading of Jackson Shares which is conditional on the proposed declaration of the
Demerger Dividend, and in the period after the day on which the Demerger Dividend is declared but before the commencement of regular way trading, trading of Jackson Shares which is unconditional but for settlement on a delayed basis.
2 Regular-way trading refers to trading after the security has been distributed and is available for normal trade settlement. This typically means a trade that settles on the second full trading day following the date of the trade.
