Notification of transactions by person discharging managerial responsibility

 

Burford Capital Limited, the leading global finance and asset management firm focused on law, has been notified of the usual annual transactions associated with certain estate planning by Jonathan T. Molot, Burford’s Chief Investment Officer.

 

On September 16, 2021, a 15.996556% interest in Jonathan Molot LLC (“JM LLC”), a company which is controlled by Mr Molot and which holds Burford Capital Limited stock, was transferred from the Jonathan T. Molot 2020 Trust No. 2 to Mr Molot. In addition a 2.704636% interest in JM LLC was transferred from the Jonathan T. Molot 2019 Trust to Mr Molot. Ongoing annual movement of ownership interests in JM LLC back-and-forth between Mr Molot and annual trusts established by Mr Molot of which he and his family members are the beneficiaries are expected as a normal part of the US estate planning undertaken. Certain further such movements occurred on September 16, 2021, with Mr Molot transferring a 0.371586% interest in JM LLC to the Jonathan T. Molot 2020 Trust, a 0.043679% interest in JM LLC to the Jonathan T. Molot May 2021 Trust, a 0.748128% interest in JM LLC to the Jonathan T. Molot Remainder 2017 Trust and a 0.057498% interest in JM LLC to the Jonathan T. Molot 2021 Trust. These transfers do not affect the overall interest in shares in Burford held by Mr Molot and the associated trusts.

 

The Notification of Dealing Forms for each of the transfers mentioned above are included at the end of this announcement.

Forward-looking statements

 

This announcement contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934 regarding assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions and beliefs about future events. These statements are intended as “forward-looking statements”. In some cases, predictive, future-tense or forward-looking words such as “aim”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “guidance”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “projected”, “should” or “will” or the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. In addition, we and our representatives may from time to time make other oral or written statements which are forward-looking statements, including in our periodic reports that we file with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, other information sent to our security holders, and other written materials. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future.
