Result of Open Offer, Placing and Offer for Subscription

On 22 August 2017, GCP Asset Backed, which invests in asset backed loans, announced details of a pre-emptive offer of C Shares targeting gross proceeds in excess of £70 million, at a price of 100 pence per C Share (the "Issue").

The Company today announces that demand from investors pursuant to the Issue has materially exceeded £70 million.

The Board, in consultation with the Investment Manager, Gravis, has resolved to accept applications in respect of 75 million C Shares, raising gross proceeds of £75 million. A scaling back exercise has taken place.

The net proceeds of the Issue will be used to take advantage of a pipeline of attractive asset backed finance investment opportunities identified by Gravis.

Application has been made for all of the C Shares to be admitted to the Premium Listing segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take effect, and dealings in the C Shares will commence, at 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 16 October 2017.

Share certificates in respect of the C Shares are expected to be despatched in the week commencing 23 October 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Immediately following Admission, the Company will have 242,845,987 ordinary shares and 75,000,000 C Shares in issue and therefore the total voting rights in the Company will be 317,845,987. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they may determine whether or not they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The estimated NAV per C Share at Admission is 98.09 pence.
