INTU DEBENTURE PLC (THE "COMPANY") ANNOUNCES THE RESULTS OF A MEETING IN RELATION TO THE £354,876,000 5.562 per cent. First Mortgage Debenture Stock due 2027 (the "Stock") issued by THE COMPANY

30 September 2020

Capitalised terms used in this Announcement and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings given to them in, or incorporated by reference into, the notice of meeting prepared by the Company and provided to the holders of the Stock on 3 September 2020 (the "Notice of Meeting"), unless the context otherwise requires.

Announcement of the results of the Meeting

The Company announces today the results of a meeting convened for holders of the Stock to vote in respect of the Extraordinary Resolution to approve the proposals referred to in the Extraordinary Resolution, in relation to proposed amendments to the Company's Escrow Agreement in order to facilitate the release of the Undrawn Funds from the Escrow Account to allow the Company to support its continuing trading activities. 

Notice is hereby given to the holders of the Stock that at a virtual meeting of the Stockholders convened by the Notice of Meeting and held by way of videoconference on 30 September 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (London time), the necessary quorum was achieved and the Extraordinary Resolution detailed in the Notice of Meeting previously notified to the Stockholders in accordance with the terms of the Trust Deed for the Stock was duly passed.

The proposals set out in the Notice of Meeting (including the execution of the Escrow Agreement Amendment Agreement and any Escrow Release Request) will be implemented as soon as practicable.

Transition update and valuations

The Company continues to work on the transition, from intu Properties plc (in administration), of the asset and facilities management (to APAM and MAPP respectively) in respect of the properties on which the Stock is currently secured (the "Properties").  The transition of the management of the Properties as described is currently anticipated in the first half of October 2020.

The Company has received property valuation reports (the "Reports") in respect of the Properties.  The Reports are from various property valuers and value the Properties as at 30 June 2020.  As described in the Company's trading update in the strategic report of its annual report and accounts published on 30 June 2020, the ongoing volatility in the UK retail market, further exacerbated by the impact of COVID-19, has had a downward pressure on the valuations of the Properties over H1 2020.  The aggregate valuations in the Reports support that view, with the aggregate valuation of the Properties declining by £87.1m from £325.7m as at 31 December 2019 to £238.6m as at 30 June 2020. The Company notes that the Reports are subject to significant qualifications including the current Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors COVID-19 material valuation uncertainty declaration.
