Waiver of competition approval condition precedent in the merger implementation deed

Other than Tatts shareholder consideration of the proposed combination at a meeting scheduled for the 12th of December and further consideration by the Supreme Court of Victoria at a hearing scheduled for the 13th of December, there are no other conditions precedent to the implementation of the Transaction.
