Scrip Dividend Declaration

Assura plc ("Assura" or "the Company"), the UK's leading primary care property investor and developer, today announces that, pursuant to its Scrip Dividend Scheme and in response to the scrip dividend alternative for the quarterly interim dividend payable on 13 October 2021 (the "Scrip Dividend Alternative"), elections were received in respect of 2 per cent. of the Company's ordinary shares in issue as at the record date of 10 September 2021.

Electing shareholders will receive ordinary shares in the Company ("Shares") in lieu of cash in respect of this dividend and, accordingly 362,022 Shares (the "New Shares") will be issued by the Company to such shareholders.

Application has therefore been made for the admission of the New Shares to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities ("Admission"). The New Shares will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares and Admission is expected to occur at 8.00am on 13 October 2021.

Following the allotment of the New Shares, it is expected that the total number of shares in issue will be 2,677,277,960 (none of which will be held in treasury) and that, accordingly, the total number of voting rights of the Company will be 2,677,277,960.

Copies of the documents relating to the Scrip Dividend Alternative are available for inspection through the National Storage Mechanism ( https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism ).

This interim dividend is 100% Property Income Distribution ("PID").
