INTU PROPERTIES PLC

RESULTS OF RIGHTS ISSUE

22 April 2014

Intu Properties plc (the "Company") today announces that the 2 for 7 rights issue of 278,241,628 ordinary shares of 50 pence each in the share capital of the Company (the "New Shares") at 180 pence or ZAR 32.28 per New Share (the "Rights Issue") announced on 20 March 2014 closed for acceptances at 11.00 a.m. (London time) on 17 April 2014. The Company received valid acceptances in respect of 275,493,790 New Shares, representing approximately 99.0 per cent. of the total number of New Shares offered to Qualifying Shareholders pursuant to the fully underwritten Rights Issue.

In the UK, New Shares in uncertificated form will be credited to CREST accounts as soon as practicable after 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 22 April 2014 and definitive share certificates in respect of New Shares in certificated form will be dispatched to Shareholders by no later than 30 April 2014. In South Africa, dematerialised shareholders will have their accounts credited with New Shares as soon as practicable after 9.00 a.m. (Johannesburg time) on 22 April 2014 and share certificates will be dispatched to certificated Shareholders by no later than 30 April 2014. New Shares will commence trading fully paid on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities and the Main Board of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on 22 April 2014.

In accordance with the arrangements set out in Part X "Additional Information" of the prospectus published by the Company dated 20 March 2014, Merrill Lynch International, HSBC Bank plc and UBS Limited shall severally use reasonable endeavours to procure subscribers for all of the remaining 2,747,838 New Shares not validly taken up in the Rights Issue. A further announcement as to the number of New Shares for which subscribers have been procured will be made in due course.

The net proceeds from the placing of such New Shares (after the deduction of the UK Issue Price of 180 pence (or its equivalent in Rand at the time of sale, as the case may be) per New Share and the expenses of procuring subscribers including any applicable brokerage and other commissions and amounts attributable to value added tax and currency conversion costs, if any) will be paid (without interest and after deducting currency conversion costs) to those persons whose rights have lapsed in accordance with the terms of the Rights Issue, pro rata to their lapsed provisional allotments, save that individual amounts of less than £5.00 (or the Rand equivalent on the relevant date, as the case may be) will not be paid to such persons but will be aggregated and paid to the Company.

A further announcement as to the number of New Shares for which subscribers have been procured will be made in due course.

Following receipt of the valid acceptances for 275,493,790 New Shares, the Company's issued share capital consists of 1,249,339,491 ordinary shares of 50 pence each. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, as at 22 April 2014, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 1,249,339,491. This figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules. As at 25 April 2014, following completion of the Rights Issue, the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 1,252,087,329. This figure may then be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Capitalised terms not defined herein are defined at Part XII "Definitions" of the prospectus published by the Company dated 20 March 2014.
