RESULTS ANNOUNCEMENT IN RESPECT OF AN ELECTION TO RECEIVE EITHER A CASH DIVIDEND OR A SCRIP DIVIDEND
15 August 2019
Stenprop shareholders are referred to previous announcements, the last of which was released on Tuesday, 16 July 2019, in
respect of the offer to receive the final dividend of 3.375 pence per share for the six months ended 31 March 2019 either
as a cash dividend or a scrip dividend by way of an issue of new Stenprop shares (of the same class as existing shares)
credited as fully paid up.
The Company is pleased to announce that election forms for 2,491,772 shares of EUR 0.000001258 pence each in the Company
(the "Scrip Dividend Shares") have been received, representing 0.83% of the current issued share capital of the Company.
The Company intends to utilise treasury shares to settle the scrip dividend.
Given the Company's share price, which is at a discount relative to net asset value, the board has matched the scrip dividend
through the buyback of shares to mitigate the dilutive effect that would have otherwise occurred through the issuance of the
Scrip Dividend Shares.
An application has been made for the Scrip Dividend Shares to be issued and allocated to shareholders (the "Allocation"). It
is expected that the Allocation will occur on Friday, 16 August 2019. The Scrip Dividend Shares will rank pari passu in all
respects with the Company's existing issued shares.
Following the Allocation, the total number of shares issued by the Company will be 298,775,175, of which 15,937,130 will be
treasury shares. The total number of shares in issue following the Allocation, less shares held in treasury, will be 282,838,045.
From 16 August 2019, the figure of 282,838,045 shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations
by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the
Company under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
