Aberdeen Standard European Logistics Income PLC

 ( LON : ASLI )

PrimaryBid Offer

 

The Board of Aberdeen Standard European Logistics Income PLC (the "Company" or " ASLI "), is pleased to announce an offer for subscription via the PrimaryBid platform (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of £0.01 each in the capital of the Company (the "New Ordinary Shares") .

As separately announced earlier today, the Board of ASLI announced that it proposes to raise additional equity capital through the issue of New Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company by way of a non-pre-emptive Issue (the "Issue").

The number of New Ordinary Shares to be issued and the price per New Ordinary Share (the "Strike Price") will be agreed between Investec Bank plc, in its capacity as broker to ASLI, and the Company following the close of the book-build at noon on Friday 12 March 2021 and announced shortly thereafter.

Given the above, and in light of the attractive pipeline of investment opportunities that the Investment Manager is continuing to evaluate, the Board believes that it is an appropriate point at which to seek to raise further equity capital through the issue of New Ordinary Shares.

PrimaryBid Offer

Private investors, who are either professionally advised or financially sophisticated, may participate in the PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the PrimaryBid platform and the PrimaryBid mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, which is being made by the Company via the PrimaryBid.com platform, is now open and will close at noon on 12 March 2021 . The PrimaryBid Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

There is a minimum subscription of £1,000 per investor under the terms of the PrimaryBid Offer which is open to private investors who are either professionally advised or financially sophisticated. The Company reserves the right to scale back any order at its absolute discretion. The Company and PrimaryBid each also reserve the right to reject any application for subscription under the PrimaryBid Offer without giving any reason for such rejection. Aggregate demand under the PrimaryBid Offer will be limited to EUR 8m (or the sterling equivalent), as is legally required.

No commission will be charged to investors on applications to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer. It is important to note that once an application for New Ordinary Shares has been made and accepted via PrimaryBid, it cannot be withdrawn.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued free of all liens, charges and encumbrances and will, when so issued, be fully paid and rank pari passu in all respects with each other and with the Company's existing ordinary shares including, without limitation, the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue.  

Application will be made to the Financial Conduct Authority for admission of the New Ordinary Shares to the premium segment of the Official List and to London Stock Exchange plc for admission to trading of the New Ordinary Shares on its main market for listed securities (the "Main Market"), (together, "Admission").  It is expected that Admission will become effective, and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares on the Main Market will commence, on or around 16 March 2021.

The terms and conditions on which the PrimaryBid Offer is made, including the procedure for application and payment for New Ordinary Shares, is available at www.PrimaryBid.com.
