Further to the announcement dated 6 December 2017, the Board of PBLT is pleased to announce the successful placing of 958,257 ordinary shares of 1 penny each in the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") raising gross proceeds of £958,257.

The New Ordinary Shares were placed, subject to Admission, by finnCap Ltd pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Share Issuance Programme established under the prospectus issued by the Company dated 24 January 2017.

The New Ordinary Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares.

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and unconditional dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00am on 11 December 2017.

Following Admission, the number of ordinary shares that the Company has in issue will be 23,651,816. The total number of voting rights of the Company will be 23,651,816 and this figure 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 Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued in registered form and may be held in uncertificated form. The New Ordinary Shares will be issued to Placees through the CREST system unless otherwise stated and will be eligible for settlement through CREST with effect from Admission.

Notes to Editors:

TOC Property Backed Lending Trust PLC is a closed-end investment company. Its investment objective is to provide shareholders with a consistent and stable income and the potential for an attractive total return over the medium to long term while managing downside risk through: (i) a diversified portfolio of fixed rate loans predominantly secured over land and/or property in the UK; and (ii) in many cases, receiving the benefit of an associated profit share usually obtained by acquiring (at nil cost) a minority equity stake in the relevant borrower project development vehicle.

The Company's investment adviser is Tier One Capital Limited ("Tier One" or the "Investment Adviser"). Tier One was launched by former Barclays Wealth and Coutts & Co directors Stephen Black and Ian McElroy in early 2013. Both Stephen and Ian have extensive credit experience, much of which was gained in a difficult financial climate. Tier One has developed a direct lending offering that provides an opportunity which sits between conventional lending and the emerging peer-to-peer platform market. Tier One uses its direct lending and credit expertise to source funds for borrowers, broker facility agreements and then offer continued support and guidance to borrowers through the lifespan of their loan.
