Proposed Capital Reduction
Notice of General Meeting

Further to the announcement made on 10 October 2023, the Company today is posting a circular to shareholders (the Circular) in connection with a proposed cancellation of the balance standing to the credit of the Company's share premium account (the Capital Reduction).

The share premium account of the Company currently has a credit balance of £605,410,480.30. The Company proposes, subject to approval by shareholders, to apply to the Court to confirm the Capital Reduction. The reserve arising on the Capital Reduction would be credited to the profit and loss account of the Company to create distributable reserves.

The Capital Reduction is conditional upon the approval of the Company's shareholders and approval by the High Court of Justice in England and Wales. The Capital Reduction will only become effective if the resolution to approve the Capital Reduction is passed by shareholders at the general meeting, the Court confirms the Capital Reduction and the order of the Court confirming the Capital Reduction is delivered to, and registered by, the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales.

Accordingly, the Circular contains a notice convening a general meeting of the Company's shareholders (the Notice of General Meeting), which is to be held on Wednesday, 15 November 2023 at 10.00 a.m. at Norton Rose Fulbright LLP's office at 3 More London, Riverside, London SE1 2AQ, UK, at which a special resolution will be proposed to approve the Capital Reduction.

Shareholders are invited to submit any questions relevant to the business of the general meeting via email to or in writing to General Meeting Questions, c/o Company Secretary, Reach plc, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AP by 10.00 a.m. on Friday, 3 November 2023.
