Results of Scrip dividend election


Capital & Regional is pleased to announce that a total of 6,135,235 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ("scrip dividend shares") are to be issued pursuant to the election offered to shareholders to receive the final dividend for the year ended 30 December 2016 by way of the issue of new ordinary shares.  This represents approximately 0.9 per cent of the current issued share capital of the Company.  The scrip dividend shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing issued ordinary shares.


An application will be made for the scrip dividend shares to be admitted to the Premium Segment of the Official List of the United Kingdom Listing Authority, to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities, and to be listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange ("admission"). It is expected that admission will occur on 16 May 2017.


Following the issue of the scrip dividend shares, the total number of shares in issue and voting rights in Capital & Regional will be 708,477,735 with effect from 16 May 2017.  This may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Capital & Regional under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


Share certificates will be posted to certificated shareholders who elected to receive scrip dividend shares on 15 May 2017. The CREST, CSDP or broker accounts of dematerialised shareholders who elected to receive scrip dividend shares will be credited with scrip dividend shares on 16 May 2017.
