Placing of new Ordinary Shares

 

The Company is pleased to announce that it will look to make an issue of up to 980,000 new ordinary shares directly to professional, qualifying investors*, free of stamp duty, pursuant to the shareholder authorities granted at the Company's last annual general meeting.  Such issue will be undertaken by way of a non pre-emptive placing of shares (the "Placing") conducted by the Company's broker, Canaccord Genuity Limited.  Shares will be issued at a price of 967.50 pence each, being a 1.26 per cent. premium to the prevailing net asset value (including income and valuing debt at fair value) of the existing ordinary shares at close on Thursday, 17 January 2013, as announced today. 

 

In the event of excess demand, priority will be given to early expressions of interest.

 

Shares issued under the Placing will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares.  The Company expects to make an announcement of the results of the Placing later today.

 

*As defined in section 86(7) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended).
