M&G Credit Income Investment Trust plc
Results of the Placing
The Board of M&G Credit Income Investment Trust plc (the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of a placing of ordinary shares ("Ordinary Shares") under its placing programme (the "Placing"). The Placing, which was announced on 18 January 2019, was undertaken to provide a number of existing investors the opportunity to increase their holdings in the Company, as well as to satisfy excess demand in the market.
The Placing was oversubscribed and, accordingly, the Company has allotted 25 million Ordinary Shares, being the maximum number of Ordinary Shares made available under the Placing, raising £25.25 million at an issue price of 101 pence per Ordinary Share. The net proceeds of the Placing will be invested in accordance with the Company's investment policy.
Applications have been made to the Financial Conduct Authority for admission of the 25,000,000 new Ordinary Shares to listing on the premium segment of the Official List and to the London Stock Exchange plc for admission of the new Ordinary Shares to trading on the premium segment of its main market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on 4 February 2019 and that dealings in the Ordinary Shares will commence at that time.
The new Ordinary Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends or other distributions made, paid or declared, if any, by reference to a record date after the date of their issue.
Immediately following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 125,000,001 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. This figure may be used by shareholders in determining the denominator for the calculation by which they will establish if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
Terms used in this announcement shall, unless the context otherwise requires, bear the meanings given to them in the prospectus published by the Company on 26 September 2018 which can be found on the Company's website at www.mandg.co.uk/CreditIncomeInvestmentTrust.
