Notes to editors
Capital Group and BlackRock had a number of other accounts that were allocated shares. However, only those accounts listed above received preferential allocations to reflect their long engagement with the process and the fact that they gave the government the early confidence to launch the IPO. In total, Capital Group received a further 5.1 million shares allocated across 2 other accounts and BlackRock received a further 2.35 million shares across 3 other accounts.
