9. Chain of controlled undertakings through which the voting rights and/or the
financial instruments are effectively held, if applicable: ^xxi
The cash-settled options are legally owned by YCL. YCL is, in turn, wholly
owned by HHSM. The triggering event is a decrease in the total voting rights
deemed to be held by YCL under the cash-settled options (pursuant to DTR
5.3.1R) to 96,949,305. Accordingly, as a result of the triggering event, YCL
is deemed to hold directly, and HHSM is deemed to hold indirectly, 0.792% of
the voting rights in Barclays PLC through YCL's total holding of cash-settled
options. For the avoidance of doubt, YCL has no right to acquire or exercise
any voting rights in Barclays PLC. The indirect holding by HHSM of the
cash-settled options, when aggregated with HHSM's pre-existing indirect
holding of ordinary shares (which has been the subject of previous
notifications), is now less than the 7% threshold for voting rights that is
notifiable by HHSM pursuant to DTR 5.1.2R.
