Raven Property Group Limited (“Raven” or the “Company”)

Smaller Related Party Transaction

Raven Property Group Limited has agreed to purchase 10 million of the Company’s own shares from Invesco Asset Management Limited (“IAML”) under the Company’s existing buy-back authority. The purchase is being executed at 40 pence per ordinary share (the “Transaction Price”), resulting in a total consideration of ?4 million (the “Buy Back”). The Buy Back shares will subsequently be cancelled.

IAML falls under the definition of a “related party” under the Listing Rules, as it is a substantial shareholder in the Company. The Buy Back is therefore deemed to be a “smaller related party transaction” within Listing Rule 11.1.10R. 

N+1 Singer, the Company's sponsor, has provided written confirmation to the Board of the Company that the terms of the Buy Back are fair and reasonable so far as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.

Following this, the Company will have 501,349,072 ordinary shares in issue.
