              The College Retirement Equities Fund ("CREF") hereby informs you that on August 4, 2020, CREF bought 85,108 voting shares of Keywords Studios plc, bringing its ownership to 1,374,413 voting shares, equivalent to a 1.874% voting share ownership percentage of Keywords Studios plc.  CREF owns these shares through two of its investment accounts: the Global Equities Account and the Stock Account.  It is our understanding the total voting shares outstanding is 73,337,424.

 

For your information, CREF is a U.S. based investment company, which is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  CREF has multiple investment accounts, each with separate investment objectives and policies.  All assets in the accounts are beneficially owned by CREF, and all the accounts are managed by TIAA-CREF Investment Management, LLC ("TCIM"), an SEC registered investment adviser.

 

             Additionally, a fund managed by an affiliate of CREF, Teachers Advisors, LLC ("TAL"), owns 757,886 voting shares of Keywords Studios plc equivalent to a 1.033% voting share ownership percentage of Keywords Studios plc. These holdings are owned by mutual funds which are investment portfolios of the TIAA-CREF Funds or the TIAA-CREF Life Funds (collectively, the "Funds").  The Funds are SEC registered investment companies and the Funds are managed by Teachers Advisors, LLC ("TAL"), an SEC registered investment adviser that is affiliated with TCIM.

 

              In addition, Nuveen Asset Management, LLC ("NAM"), an affiliate of CREF, owns 114,046 voting shares of Keywords Studios plc, equivalent to a 0.156% voting share ownership percentage of Keywords Studios plc held through the separate accounts that it advises.

 

A total of 2,246,345 voting shares or 3.063% of the outstanding voting shares of Keywords Studios plc are owned, in aggregate, by CREF and these affiliated funds and accounts. TAL and TCIM follow the same policies when voting on behalf of CREF and the Funds.
