* Subject to the ASX Listing Rules, the directors of TBH retain the right to extend the closing date of the Offer at their discretion. Any extension of the Closing Date will have consequential effect on the anticipated date for issue of the Shares.

The dates and times listed above are indicative only and subject to change. TBH reserves the right to amend the above timetable without notice subject to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) ("Corporations Act"), the ASX Listing Rules and other applicable laws.

Cleansing notice

This notice is given by TBH under section 708AA(2)(f) of the Corporations Act, as modified by ASIC Corporations (Non-Traditional Rights Issues) Instrument 2016/84 ("ASIC Instrument 2016/84").

Requirement under section 708AA(7) of the Corporations Act

As per section 708AA(7) of the Corporations Act, TBH advises that:

a) the New Shares will be issued without disclosure under part 6D.2 of the Corporations Act, as notionally modified by the ASIC Instrument 2016/84;

b) this notice is given under section 708AA(2)(f) of the Corporations Act, as notionally modified by ASIC Instrument 2016/84;

c) as at the date of this notice, TBH has complied with:

(i) the provisions of Chapter 2M of the Corporations Act as they apply to TBH; and

(ii) section 674 of the Corporations Act;

d) as at the date of this notice, there is no excluded information of the type referred to in sections 708AA(8) and 708AA(9) of the Corporations Act, as notionally modified by the ASIC Instrument 2016/84; and

e) the potential effect the issue of the New Shares will have on the control of TBH, and the consequences of that, is set out below.

Effect of the Offer on Control

TBH does not expect the issue of New Shares under the Offer to have a material effect or consequence on the control of TBH, but this is dependent on whether eligible shareholders will be taking up their entitlement to New Shares.

The potential effect that the issue of New Shares under the Offer will have on TBH is as follows:

(a) if all eligible shareholders take up their entitlements under the Offer, the issue of New Shares under the Offer will have no material effect on the control of TBH and shareholders will retain the same percentage interest in TBH, subject only to minimal changes resulting from ineligible shareholders being unable to participate in the Offer; or

(b) if a shareholder does not take up their full entitlement, their interest will be diluted relative to those eligible shareholders who do take up their entitlements and relative to those who apply for, and are issued, New Shares under the Shortfall Facility. Acceptance of entitlements or the placement of any of the Shortfall Facility may also result in existing shareholders significantly increasing their interest in the Company or obtaining a substantial interest in the Company.

Therefore, it is not possible to predict the effect of the Offer on the control of TBH.
