Press Release

For immediate release

9 March 2012

 

Murray Income Trust PLC

(the "Company")

 

 

Placing

 

The Company is pleased to announce that it will look to issue new ordinary shares (or sell ordinary shares held by the Company in treasury as the case may be) today directly to professional investors ("Placees"), 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, Collins Stewart Europe Limited ("Collins Stewart").  Shares will be issued at a price equal to an estimate by Aberdeen Asset Managers Limited (the Company's manager) of the Company's net asset value per ordinary share as at midday today, plus 1.5 per cent. to cover the costs of the Placing, rounded up to the nearest penny (the "Placing Price").  The Placing Price will be disclosed by Collins Stewart to Placees shortly after midday in order to confirm their order and book the trade.

 

Shares issued (or sold out of treasury) under the Placing will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing ordinary shares.  The Company expects to make an announcement of the results of the Placing and the Placing Price later today.
