In particular residents of a Member State of the European Economic Area other than Belgium are not allowed to access the Prospectus unless the offer may be made in a Member State in accordance with one of the exemptions as set forth in Directive 2003/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 November 2003 on the prospectus to be published when securities are offered to the public or admitted to trading, as amended (the “Prospectus Directive”), to the extent that such exemptions are implemented in the relevant Member State and to the extent that such offer does not entail, in any of these Member States, an obligation for the Issuer to publish a prospectus in accordance with article 3 of the Prospectus Directive, as implemented in any of the Member States.
In general, every person seeking to access the Prospectus will need to verify in advance that such access does not constitute a breach of the applicable legislation or regulation. The Issuer cannot be held liable in case of a breach of these restrictions by any person.
Under no circumstances shall the Prospectus constitute an offer or a solicitation to subscribe to the Bonds in any country where access to the Prospectus, the offer or the solicitation may be unlawful and under no circumstances may the Prospectus be used for such purposes or in that respect.
The Issuer has taken no action to offer its securities to the public outside of Belgium and is not planning on doing so; the Issuer has not obtained any approval for the circulation of the Prospectus in a jurisdiction outside of Belgium.
The Prospectus may not be published or circulated, directly or indirectly, in the United States of America, in Switzerland, or in any other jurisdiction where the publication or circulation of such information may be held unlawful.
