Redrow hereby notifies the market that an application has been made to the FCA and the LSE for three Existing Ordinary Shares of 10 pence each (the "Shares") to be admitted to the Official List.

The Shares are being issued to The Redrow Employee Share Trust to ensure that a whole number of New Ordinary Shares are created following the implementation of the Share Consolidation. When issued, the Shares will be fully paid and rank pari passu with Redrow's Existing Ordinary Shares.

It is expected that the issue of the Shares will take place at or shortly before 8.00 a.m. on Friday 29 March 2019 and that admission will occur and trading will commence at 8.00 a.m. on the same day.
