Shareholders and the general public are hereby advised that Glenrock Lux PE No2 SCSp ("Glenrock No2") (a special limited

947 UPL shares were acquired on the SEM at GBP 0.87 per share.

Separately and in addition to the aforegoing, in March 2021, Glenrock Lux PE No1 SCSp ("Glenrock No1") (a special limited
partnership (société en commandite spéciale) established under Luxembourg law and registered with the Luxembourg Trade and
Companies Register under number B251592) acquired 11 306 729 UPL shares on the SEM.

As a consequence of the aforegoing transactions, Glenrock No1 and Glenrock No2 (collectively referred to as "Glenrock") now
collectively hold 24,752,866 UPL shares, representing 34.2% of the voting rights attached to the ordinary shares of Universal

In as much as the same general partner manages and controls both Glenrock No1 and Glenrock No2, in acquiring the aforesaid
shares, Glenrock No1 and Glenrock No2 are regarded as having acted in concert (and have acquired 'effective control' over
Universal Partners, as that term is defined under the Mauritian Securities (Takeover) Rules 2010 (the "Takeover Rules")).

Accordingly, Glenrock represented by its general partner (a Luxembourg limited liability company), will be required to make a
mandatory offer as soon as practicable to the remaining shareholders of the Company, to acquire all the voting shares of the
Company not already held by Glenrock, in terms of Rule 33 (1) (c) of the Takeover Rules.

Shareholders will be kept informed of any further development regarding the above matter.
