1If an issuer is required to notify information to a RIS at a time when a RIS is not open for business, it may distribute the information as soon as possible to:

  1. (1)

    not less than two national newspapers in the United Kingdom;

  2. (2)

    two newswire services operating in the United Kingdom; and
