1.1 Keep the Exchange and holders of its listed Debt Securities informed as soon as reasonably practicable of any information relating to its business (including information on any major new developments in the group's sphere of activity which is not public knowledge) which:—
(a) is necessary to enable them and the public to appraise the position of the business;
(b) is necessary to avoid the establishment of a false market in its listed Debt Securities; and
(c) might be reasonably expected to significantly affect its ability to meet its commitments.
