As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form-8-K filed by Parker-Hannifin Corporation (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission, filed on August 3, 2021 (the “Prior Form 8-K”), the Company issued an announcement (the “Rule 2.7 Announcement”) pursuant to Rule 2.7 of the United Kingdom City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the “Code”), disclosing the terms of an offer to purchase Meggitt plc (“Meggitt”).

On September 12, 2022, the Company completed the acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Meggitt for 800 pence per share and upon such further terms as described in the Rule 2.7 Announcement, resulting in an aggregate purchase price of approximately £6.3 billion. The Acquisition was implemented by way of a court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the UK Companies Act 2006 and under the Code.

Copies of the Rule 2.7 Announcement and the Cooperation Agreement entered into in connection with the Acquisition (the “Cooperation Agreement”) were filed as Exhibit 2.1 and Exhibit 10.1, respectively, to the Prior Form 8-K and each are incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary of the Rule 2.7 Announcement is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the text of the Rule 2.7 Announcement and Cooperation Agreement.
