LMI Int'l Utilities

Partial repayment of bank loan


LeggMason Investors International Utilities Trust plc

Partial Repayment of Bank Loan

In consideration of the Company's short remaining life (31 December 2003) and
the continuing volatility within the global utility sector, the Directors have
considered it prudent to reduce bank indebtedness. Accordingly the Company has
repaid $41.8 million (£29.7 million) of its loan facility with Halifax Bank of
Scotland. Breakage costs of £8,935 have been incurred.

Following this repayment, the Company has total assets (based on mid-market
valuations as at 22 October 2002) of £145.5 million and borrowings of $37.7
million (£24.4 million).
