Placing under Placing Programme

On 8 January 2018 GCP Infra, the only UK listed fund focused primarily on investments in UK infrastructure debt, announced details of a placing targeting gross proceeds of c.£60 million under the 2017 Placing Programme, at a Placing Price of 122.0 pence per new Ordinary Share (the "Placing").

The Board is pleased to announce today that the Placing has been significantly oversubscribed. Accordingly, and in light of the investment opportunities available to the Company in the near term and demand from investors for its shares, the Board has exercised its discretion to increase the size of the Placing to £100 million through the issue of 81,967,214 new Ordinary Shares, subject to Admission.

Applications will be made in respect of the 81,967,214 new Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to the Placing to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings in the new Ordinary Shares will commence on 16 January 2018. When issued, the new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares.

Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 873,294,056 Ordinary Shares of £0.01 each. With effect from 16 January 2018, the total number of issued shares with voting rights will be 873,294,056.

The above figure of 873,294,056 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
