5 December 2019


Daily Mail and General Trust plc

Ultimate controlling company


DMGT announces that the Board have been notified of a consolidation of the Group's holding structure.   Until 4 December 2019, Rothermere Continuation Limited (RCL) held 100% of DMGT's issued Ordinary Shares.  The Board understands that as of 5 December 2019, RCL has been acquired by Rothermere Investments Limited (RIL), a company incorporated in Jersey.  RIL now holds 100% of the issued Ordinary Shares. The underlying control of DMGT, however, remains unchanged and continues to lie with a discretionary trust that is held for the benefit of Lord Rothermere and his immediate family.  RIL proposes to rename itself RCL by the end of December 2019.
