dfcu Limited (‘dfcu’) has become aware of several inaccurate and defamatory reports circulating on various media
platforms purporting that it is in chaos following the alleged exit of CDC Group Plc, one of its shareholders, and
the resignation of Mr. Deepak Malik, a non-executive director representing Arise BV. These alarmist rumours
have been perpetrated and coordinated by certain person(s) with the malicious intent of discrediting dfcu and its
successful acquisition of some assets and assumption of some liabilities of Crane Bank (in receivership).
