Cranemere’s Approach to Taxation

This publication is made by The Cranemere Group Limited (“Cranemere”) in compliance with Schedule
19 of the Finance Act 2016 for the financial year ending 31 December 2019.

Cranemere takes a responsible approach to taxation consistent with its values of integrity, open
engagement and proactive dialogue with all stakeholders and in accordance with applicable laws and
regulations. Cranemere recognises the important role played by HMRC and international tax authorities
and engages with them professionally and with appropriate transparency.

Cranemere is not prescriptive regarding acceptable levels of tax risk. Cranemere assesses the tax risks
associated with each prospective transaction and seeks the advice of appropriate external tax
professionals. External tax professionals assist Cranemere with both tax risk management and tax
planning. Specifically, external tax professionals are engaged to help management conduct individual
transactions in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and to advise on Cranemere’s general
tax obligations. The Board of Directors is required to approve material transactions after appropriate
consideration of, among other things, tax related matters and, through its Finance, Audit and Risk
Committee, is also responsible for periodically reviewing with management Cranemere’s material risks
and the steps taken by management to monitor or mitigate such risks.

Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

This statement is made by The Cranemere Group Limited (“Cranemere”) pursuant to section 54 of the
Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes its slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial
year ending 31 December 2019.

As a holding company Cranemere recognises that, like any other business, it must take steps to protect
against the risks of slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain. Cranemere’s supply
chain primarily consists of professional service providers. Cranemere has developed policies and
business practices that appropriately mitigate the risks of slavery and human trafficking in its supply
chain. Cranemere’s approach reflects its values, and it acts ethically and with integrity in all business
relationships.

As part of Cranemere’s systems and controls to mitigate the risks of slavery and human trafficking within
its business, Cranemere prioritises employee, contractor and supplier adherence to the Cranemere
values. Within its supply chain, Cranemere seeks to identify, assess and mitigate potential high risk areas
through appropriate due diligence.
Cranemere periodically reviews its approach to slavery and human trafficking to ensure its alignment
with Cranemere’s values.
