PrimaryBid Offer

Supermarket Income REIT plc (LON: SUPR), the listed real estate investment
trust providing secure, inflation-protected, long income from grocery property
in the UK, is pleased to announce, a conditional offer for subscription via
the PrimaryBid platform (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of
£0.01 each in the capital of the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") at an issue
price of 121 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price"), being a
discount of 4.3 per cent to the closing price of 126.5 pence per existing
ordinary share on 6 April 2022.

As separately announced earlier today, the Company is also targeting a
fundraise of approximately £175 million by way of the issue of 144,628,099
New Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price by way of a placing pursuant to the
Company's existing placing programme, also at the Issue Price.

The Company will use the funds raised to make additional investments in
accordance with the Company's investment criteria, further diversifying the
Group's portfolio and capitalising on its position in the UK supermarket real
estate market.

 

PrimaryBid Offer

The Company values its retail investor base and is therefore pleased to
provide private and other investors the opportunity to participate in the
PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the PrimaryBid mobile app
available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge
investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, via the PrimaryBid mobile app, will be open to
individual and institutional investors following the release of this
announcement and will close at 11 a.m. on 26 April 2022.  The PrimaryBid
Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

The Company reserves the right to scale back any order at its discretion. The
Company and PrimaryBid each also reserve the right to reject any application
for subscription under the PrimaryBid Offer without giving any reason for such
rejection.

No commission is charged to investors on applications to participate in the
PrimaryBid Offer made through PrimaryBid.  It is vital to note that once an
application for New Ordinary Shares has been made and accepted via PrimaryBid,
an application cannot be withdrawn.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued free of all liens, charges and
encumbrances and will, when issued and fully paid, rank pari passu in all
respects with the Company's existing Ordinary Shares.

Application will be made to the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") and
London Stock Exchange plc (the "London Stock Exchange") for the New Ordinary
Shares to be admitted to the premium listing segment (closed-ended investment
funds) of the Official List of the FCA and to trading on the premium segment
of the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities
("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective on, and
that dealings for normal settlement in the New Ordinary Shares will commence
on the London Stock Exchange by 8.00 a.m. on 29 April 2022. The PrimaryBid
Offer is conditional, among other things, upon Admission becoming effective.

This announcement should be read in its entirety. In particular, the
information provided in the "Important Notices" section of this announcement
should be read and understood.

Further details of the PrimaryBid Offer

The Company highly values its retail investor base which has supported the
Company alongside institutional investors over several years. Given the
longstanding support of retail shareholders, the Company believes that it is
appropriate to provide retail and other interested investors the opportunity
to participate through the PrimaryBid Offer. The Company is therefore making
the PrimaryBid Offer available exclusively through the PrimaryBid mobile app.

There is a minimum subscription of £250 per investor under the terms of the
PrimaryBid Offer which is open to existing shareholders and other investors
subscribing via the PrimaryBid mobile app. Aggregate demand under the
PrimaryBid Offer will be limited to EUR 8m (or the equivalent), as is legally
required.

For further details please refer to the PrimaryBid website
at www.PrimaryBid.com (http://www.primarybid.com/) . The terms and conditions
on which the PrimaryBid Offer is made, including the procedure for application
and payment for New Ordinary Shares, is available to all persons who register
with PrimaryBid.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued free of all liens, charges and
encumbrances and will, when so issued, be fully paid and rank pari passu in
all respects with each other and with the Company's existing ordinary shares
including, without limitation, the right to receive all dividends and other
distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue.

The Company declared its third quarterly dividend on 6 April 2022. Based on
the current expected timetable, the New Ordinary Shares will not qualify for
the third quarterly dividend which relates to the period from 1 January 2022
to 31 March 2022.
