The Base Prospectus posted on this page of the Coloplast website (the "Base Prospectus") is not for release, publication or distribution, directly or indirectly, in or into the United States, Canada, Japan or Australia or any other jurisdiction in which such release, publication or distribution would be unlawful. Any failure to comply with this restriction may constitute a violation of United States securities laws and/or the securities laws of other countries.
The Base Prospectus comprises a base prospectus for the purposes of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as amended (the "Prospectus Regulation").
No person has been authorised to give any information or to make any representation not contained in or not consistent with the Base Prospectus and, if given or made, such information or representation should not be relied upon as having been authorised by the Issuers, the Guarantor or any Dealer (as defined in the Base Prospectus).
Neither the Dealers nor any of their respective affiliates have authorised the whole or any part of the Base Prospectus and none of them makes any representation or warranty or accepts any responsibility as to the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in the Base Prospectus or any responsibility for the acts or omissions of the Issuers, the Guarantor or any other person (other than the relevant Dealer) in connection with the issue and offering of the Notes.
Neither the delivery of the Base Prospectus nor any final terms ("Final Terms") nor any drawdown prospectus ("Drawdown Prospectus") in respect of any Notes issued under the Base Prospectus, nor the offering, sale or delivery of any Notes shall, in any circumstances, create any implication that the information contained in the Base Prospectus is true subsequent to the date of the Base Prospectus (or the date upon which the Base Prospectus has been most recently amended or supplemented) or that there has been no adverse change, or any event reasonably likely to involve any adverse change, in the prospects or financial or trading position of the Issuers or the Guarantor since the date of the Base Prospectus (or, if later, the date upon which the Base Prospectus has been most recently amended or supplemented).
Not an offer, invitation or recommendation to subscribe
Neither the Base Prospectus nor any Final Terms nor any Drawdown Prospectus constitutes an offer or an invitation to subscribe for or purchase any Notes and should not be considered as a recommendation (express or implied) by the Issuers, the Guarantor, the Dealers or any of them that any recipient of the Base Prospectus, any Final Terms or any Drawdown Prospectus should subscribe for or purchase any Notes.
Prospective investors should make an independent assessment as to whether the information in the Base Prospectus is relevant to their situation, and any investment in the notes should be based on the information regarding the investor's specific circumstances that the investor may deem necessary and only if the Notes are consistent with the investor’s financial objectives.
Restrictions on distribution
The distribution of the Base Prospectus, any Final Terms and any Drawdown Prospectus and the offering, sale and delivery of Notes in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law. Neither the Issuers nor the Guarantor nor any of the Dealers represents that the Base Prospectus may be lawfully distributed, or that any Notes may be lawfully offered, in compliance with any applicable registration or other requirements in any such jurisdiction, or pursuant to an exemption available thereunder, or assumes any responsibility for facilitating any such distribution or offering. Before you access this page of the Coloplast website you are required by the Issuers, the Guarantor and the Dealers to inform yourself about such restrictions and you are required to observe such restrictions.

The Notes may not be offered, sold or (in the case of Notes in bearer form) delivered within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S).
The Base Prospectus has not been approved by an authorised person for the purpose of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, as amended (the "FSMA").

Any investment activity to which the Base Prospectus relates will only be available to and will only be engaged with relevant persons. Any person who is not a relevant person should not act or rely on the Base Prospectus or any of its contents.
