FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4 November 2013

Merlin Entertainments plc

Update on IPO Timetable

Following the announcement by Merlin Entertainments plc ("Merlin" or the "Company") on 30 October 2013 of the price range for its initial public offering (the "IPO" or the "Global Offer"), the publication of an approved price range prospectus (the "Prospectus") and the commencement of the Global Offer, Merlin today announces a change in the timetable for institutional and retail investors to participate in the Global Offer (the "Revised Expected Timetable").

Under the Revised Expected Timetable, the following deadlines have changed:

·     Intermediaries Offer: Latest time and date for the receipt of completed applications from retail investors by Intermediaries is 5.00 p.m. on 7 November 2013.

The full Revised Expected Timetable is set out below.  There are no further changes to the information set out in the Prospectus which are relevant for institutional and retail investors considering the Global Offer.

Notes:

(1)    Times and dates set out in the timetable above and mentioned throughout this announcement that fall after the date of publication of this announcement are indicative only and may be subject to change without further notice.

(2)    All references to time in this timetable are to UK time.

(3)    The Pricing Statement will not automatically be sent to persons who receive the Prospectus but it will be available free of charge at the registered office of the Company at 3 Market Close, Poole, Dorset BH15 1NQ. In addition, the Pricing Statement will be published (subject to certain restrictions) in electronic form and available on www.merlinentertainments.biz. If (i) the Offer Price is set above the Price Range or the Price Range is revised higher; and/or (ii) the number of New Shares to be issued by the Company is set above or below the New Share Offer Size Range (subject to the minimum free float requirements agreed by the Company with the UK Listing Authority); and/or (iii) the number of Existing Shares to be sold by the Selling Shareholders is set above or below the Existing Share Offer Size Range (subject to the minimum free float requirements agreed by the Company with the UK Listing Authority), then the Company would make an announcement via a Regulatory Information Service and prospective investors would have a statutory right to withdraw their application for Ordinary Shares pursuant to section 87Q of FSMA. In such circumstances, the Pricing Statement would not be published until the period for exercising such withdrawal rights has ended. Therefore, the expected date of publication of the Pricing Statement would be extended. The arrangements for withdrawing offers to subscribe for or purchase Ordinary Shares would be made clear in the announcement.
