Results of Initial Placing and Offer for Subscription

The Board of Picton Property Income Limited (the "Company" or "Picton") is pleased to announce the results of the Initial Placing and Offer for Subscription (together the "Initial Offers"). The Initial Placing and Offer for Subscription were oversubscribed and following a scaling back exercise an aggregate of 59,322,034 New Shares will be issued at the Issue Price of 59 pence per share.

 

Application will be made for the new shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") and to trading on the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00am on 23 May 2014 (or such later date as may be agreed between the Company and the Joint Bookrunners).

Following Admission, the number of ordinary shares that the Company has in issue will be 439,191,763. The total number of voting rights of the Company will be 439,191,763 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company, under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Commenting, Nick Thompson, Chairman of Picton said:

"We are pleased that the first phase of this £100 million fundraising was oversubscribed and also to have received support from new and existing shareholders.  Through this process we have established a Placing Programme aimed at effectively funding future property acquisitions which meet the Company's investment objective.  We look forward to updating the market as the capital is deployed".
