The Board of John Laing Environmental Assets Group Limited ("JLEN" or the "Company") today announces the Company's intention to launch a share issuance programme for up to 200 million New Ordinary Shares (the "Issuance Programme"). Issues under the Issuance Programme may be undertaken by way of a placing, an offer for subscription and/or an intermediaries offer (or any combination thereof). A prospectus relating to the Issuance Programme is expected to be published before the end of February 2018.


The net proceeds of each Issue undertaken pursuant to the Issuance Programme will be used to repay amounts drawn under the Facility and/or to fund acquisition opportunities in accordance with the Company's investment policy, subject to the circumstances at the time of each Issue.

The General Meeting will be held at Sarnia House, Le Truchot, St Peter Port, Guernsey, at 10.30 a.m. on 2 March 2018.
