Supermarket Income REIT raises GBP139.8m in share issue
The Board of Supermarket Income REIT has successfully raised GBP139.8 million in a substantially oversubscribed issue of 135,748,028 New Ordinary Shares at 103 pence per New Ordinary Share.
After careful consideration of the level and quality of demand in the Issue alongside the possibility of acquiring additional assets, the Board determined to increase the size of the Issue to GBP139.8 million. Notwithstanding the increased size of the Issue, investor demand substantially exceeded the gross proceeds raised and as such a scaling back exercise was undertaken.
An application will be made for 135,748,028 of the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on the Specialist Fund Segment of the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities (Admission). It is expected that Admission will take effect, and dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00 am (London time) on 30 April 2020.
The New Ordinary Shares will, when issued be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu with the Existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all future dividends and distributions declared, made or paid after Admission.
Immediately following Admission, the Company will have 473,620,462 Ordinary Shares in issue and therefore the total voting rights in the Company will be 473,620,462. 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.
