London: Informa PLC ("Informa"), the international Exhibitions, Events, Business Intelligence and Academic Publishing Group, today announces the admission of New Informa Shares to the London Stock Exchange, increasing its share capital, following the successful completion of its combination with UBM plc ("UBM").

Stephen A. Carter, Group Chief Executive, said: "Today marks the start of an exciting chapter for Informa, as we combine our company with UBM to create a truly international B2B Information Services business."

He added: "The new Informa Group will combine international scale, depth and breadth, and a broad range of specialist B2B capabilities to provide more options for Customers, greater opportunities for Colleagues and the potential to create significant value for Shareholders."

The new Informa Group

The new Informa Group, employing more than 11,000 people, will own and operate a portfolio of more than 500 leading exhibitions brands serving 15 core industry verticals including Health & Nutrition, Life Sciences & Pharma, and Real Estate & Construction. In addition, it will own a complementary portfolio of confex/conference brands, a range of specialist information and intelligence brands and strong capabilities in B2B consulting and marketing service.

Through combination and increased size, it will serve businesses in growth markets including the US and China, India, Brazil, the Middle East, Europe and the UK.

Admission of New Informa shares and voting rights and capital

Informa is pleased to announce that 427,536,794 new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the capital of Informa, each issued pursuant to the recommended offer by Informa for UBM which was completed on 15 June 2018, have been admitted to listing on the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities at 8.00 a.m. today.
