INVESCO PLC Commences Consent Solicitation

LONDON, October 22 /PRNewswire/ --

    INVESCO PLC (NYSE: IVZ) today announced the commencement of a consent
solicitation relating to its following series of notes:

    4.500% Senior Notes Due 2009 (CUSIP No. 03235EAM2)
    5.625% Senior Notes Due 2012 (CUSIP No. 03235EAQ3)
    5.375% Senior Notes Due 2013 (CUSIP No. 03235EAK6)
    5.375% Senior Notes Due 2014 (CUSIP No. 03235EAP5)

    On September 25, 2007, INVESCO announced a proposal to move its primary
listing from the London Stock Exchange to the New York Stock Exchange and its
domicile from the United Kingdom to Bermuda. If this proposal receives the
required INVESCO shareholder and U.K. court approvals, INVESCO will become a
direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Invesco Ltd., a Bermuda corporation and the
new parent company of INVESCO, and INVESCO and Invesco Ltd. will execute
supplemental indentures making Invesco Ltd. a guarantor of the notes on a
senior unsecured basis. In addition, following the redomicile, there will be
an intragroup reorganization as a result of which certain regulated
subsidiaries of INVESCO carrying on business in the European Union will be
distributed by INVESCO to Invesco Ltd.

    INVESCO is requesting that holders of the notes as of the close of
business on October 19, 2007, the record date for the consent solicitation,
agree to certain proposed amendments to the indentures governing the notes
and provide their approval of the intragroup reorganization that will follow
the redomicile, notwithstanding that noteholder approval is not required
under the indentures or applicable law in order to effect the reorganization.
The proposed amendments to each indenture, if and when they become effective,
will modify the covenant that requires INVESCO to provide certain information
to the applicable trustee and noteholders such that the filing of periodic
reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by Invesco Ltd., the
new parent company of INVESCO, will satisfy the information requirement.

    The consent solicitation requires, among other things, the receipt of
consents from holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of
each series of notes and will expire at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on
November 1, 2007, unless extended. Subject to the terms and conditions of the
consent solicitation, if the required consents are received for each series
of notes and the redomicile is completed, INVESCO will pay to each holder who
has validly delivered (and not revoked) a consent on or prior to 5:00 p.m.
New York City time on the expiration date a consent payment in the amount of
US$1.25 for each US$1,000 principal amount of notes. INVESCO will not be
required to make any consent payments, and will not have the benefit of the
proposed amendments, if the solicitation is terminated, the supplemental
indentures reflecting the proposed amendments are not executed or do not
otherwise become effective for any reason, or if execution of the
supplemental indentures or any payment is prohibited by law or regulation.
The company will make any consent payments promptly following the completion
of the redomicile.

    The consent solicitation may be amended, extended or terminated, at the
option of INVESCO. For a complete statement of the terms and conditions of
the consent solicitation, holders of the notes should refer to the consent
solicitation statement, dated October 22, 2007, which is being sent to all
holders of the notes as of the record date.

    Questions regarding the consent solicitation may be directed to the
Solicitation Agent: Citi at +1-800-558-3745 (toll free) or +1-212-723-6106
(collect). The Information Agent and Tabulation Agent for the consent

solicitation statement should be directed to the Information Agent at 
+1-866-873-7700 (toll free) or +1-212-430-3774 (banks and brokers).
