Proposed Tender Offer


10 October 2018


The Board of Edinburgh Dragon Trust PLC (the "Company") has undertaken a shareholder consultation exercise ahead of the Company's continuation vote in December 2018.

As a result of this consultation exercise the Board announces that, if the continuation vote is passed, it intends to undertake a tender offer for up to 30 per cent. of the ordinary shares in issue at a tender price equal to 98 per cent. of the prevailing net asset value (less the costs of implementing the tender offer).

The Board intends to post a circular to shareholders in due course containing details of the tender offer, timetable and the procedure for tendering shares. It is expected that the tender offer will take place in early 2019.

The Company's largest shareholder, City of London Investment Management, representing 22.3% of the Company's issued share capital has provided an irrevocable undertaking to vote in favour of both the Company's continuation and the tender offer.
