Major Shareholding Notifications

Following the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union and the subsequent end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020, Hostelworld as a public limited company incorporated in England and Wales with its shares admitted to trading on both the main market of the London Stock Exchange plc and the main market of the Irish Stock Exchange plc (trading as Euronext Dublin), announced on 19 March 2021 that its EU Home Member State for the purposes of the EU Transparency Directive (Directive 2004/109/EC, as amended) is Ireland.

As a result, shareholders should be aware that, in addition to their existing major shareholding notification obligations under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules which remain unchanged, shareholders are now subject to a separate and independent regime for major shareholding notifications in Ireland pursuant to the Transparency (Directive 2004/109/EC) Regulations 2007, as amended, and the Central Bank (Investment Market Conduct) Rules 2019.
