The Company announces that it has issued today 259,457 ordinary shares of no par value each ("IA Shares") to Sequoia Investment Management Company, the Company's Investment Adviser, in relation to fees payable for the three month period ended 30 June 2021.

The Company further announces that it has issued 1,138,762 ordinary shares of no par value each to Shareholders electing under the Company's scrip dividend alternative to receive ordinary shares in lieu of cash for the interim dividend for the period from 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021 ("Scrip Shares"). Elections under the scrip dividend alternative were received in respect of 4.64% of the ordinary shares in issue as at the record date of 30 July 2021. The Scrip Shares are being issued at a price of 112.36 pence per share as announced by the Company on 5 August 2021. When issued, these Scrip Shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares.


Applications will be made for the IA Shares and the Scrip Shares (together, "New Shares") 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").
