SUPERMARKET INCOME REIT PLC

 (the "Company", together with its subsidiaries the "Group")

Results of Issue and PrimaryBid Offer

The Board of Supermarket Income REIT plc is pleased to announce that it has
successfully raised gross proceeds of £300 million pursuant to the Issue and
a further £6.7 million gross proceeds pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer.

 

The Board determined to increase the size of the Issue from £175 million to
£300 million after careful consideration of:

 

·      the extremely strong level of support and quality of demand from
investors in the Issue, which materially exceeded the target Issue size;

 

·      the Investment Adviser's confidence in acquiring assets in the
pipeline; and

 

·      the increase in the availability of attractive investment
opportunities since the marketing roadshow began.

 

Notwithstanding the increase in the Issue size, investor demand substantially
exceeded the maximum size of the Issue and the PrimaryBid Offer, as such a
material scaling back exercise was undertaken.

 

247,933,884 and 5,558,276 new Ordinary Shares will be issued pursuant to the
Issue and the PrimaryBid Offer respectively (together, the "New Ordinary
Shares").

 

Applications will be made to the FCA and the London Stock Exchange for the
253,492,160 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. It is expected that Admission will become effective on, and that
dealings for normal settlement in the New Ordinary Shares will commence by, 8
a.m. on 29 April 2022.

 

The New Ordinary Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will
rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares (save for any dividends or
other distributions declared, made or paid on the Ordinary Shares by reference
to a record date prior to the allotment of the New Ordinary Shares).

 

Following Admission, the Company will have 1,239,037,822 Ordinary Shares in
issue. The total voting rights in the Company will be 1,239,037,822 and this
figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by
which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or
a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the
FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

The following Directors of the Company have participated in the issue. Details
of such subscriptions in the issue are as follows:

 

 Director             Number of shares held prior to the issue  Number of shares subscribed for in the issue  Number of shares held after the issue

The Company shortly will also be making a notification and public disclosure
of transactions by the Directors and persons discharging managerial
responsibilities and persons closely associated with them in accordance with
the requirements of UK MAR giving more details of the above dealings.

 

Nick Hewson, Chairman of the Company, said:

 

"We have seen extremely strong demand for this issue. We are grateful for the
continued support of our existing shareholders and are pleased to welcome new
investors, some of whom were able to participate for the first time following
the migration of the Company onto the premium segment of the Official List
earlier this year.

 

The team's focus is now on deploying the capital efficiently into our pipeline
of opportunities. We have £150 million of assets currently in exclusivity and
a growing number of additional assets in our pipeline, representing
opportunities in aggregate of over £700 million."

This Announcement, the Prospectus and the Supplementary Prospectus have not
been, and will not be, lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission as a disclosure document under Chapter 6D of the Australian
Corporations Act 2001 (the "Australian Corporations Act''). This Announcement,
the Prospectus and the Supplementary Prospectus does not purport to include
the information required of a disclosure document under Chapter 6D of the
Australian Corporations Act. Accordingly, this Announcement, the Prospectus
and the Supplementary Prospectus and any other document or material in
connection with the offer or sale, or invitation for subscription or purchase,
of New Ordinary Shares must not be issued or distributed directly or
indirectly in or into Australia, and no New Ordinary Shares may be offered for
sale (or transferred, assigned or otherwise alienated) to investors in
Australia for at least 12 months after their issue, except in circumstances
where disclosure to investors is not required under Part 6D.2 of the
Australian Corporations Act. Each purchaser of New Ordinary Shares will be
deemed to have acknowledged the above and, by applying for New Ordinary Shares
under this Announcement on the basis of the Prospectus and the Supplementary
Prospectus, gives an undertaking to the Company not to offer, sell, transfer,
assign or otherwise alienate those securities to persons in Australia (except
in the circumstances referred to above) for 12 months after their issue.

 

The New Ordinary Shares have been and will not be qualified by a prospectus in
accordance with the document requirements under applicable securities law in
any Canadian jurisdiction and therefore may not be offered or sold, directly
or indirectly, in Canada except in compliance with applicable Canadian
securities laws.

 

In relation to each Member State of the European Economic Area (each, a
"Member State"), no New Ordinary Shares have been offered or will be offered
pursuant to the Issue to the public in that Member State prior to the
publication of a prospectus in relation to the New Ordinary Shares having been
approved by the competent authority in that Member State or, where
appropriate, approved in another Member State and notified to the competent
authority in that Member State (all in accordance with the Prospectus
Regulation), except that offers of New Ordinary Shares may be made to the
public in that Member State at any time under the following exemptions under
the Prospectus Regulation:

 

a)   to any legal entity which is a "qualified investor" as defined under
the Prospectus Regulation;

b)   to fewer than 150 natural or legal persons (other than "qualified
investors" as defined under the Prospectus Regulation), subject to obtaining
the prior consent of Stifel for any such offer; or

c)   in any other circumstances falling within Article 1(4) of the
Prospectus Regulation,

 

provided that no such offer of New Ordinary Shares shall require the Company
to publish a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Regulation or
supplement a prospectus pursuant to Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation.

 

For the purposes of this provision, the expression "offer to the public" in
relation to any offer of New Ordinary Shares in any Member State means the
communication in any form, and by any means, of sufficient information on the
terms of the Issue, and any New Ordinary Shares to be offered, so as to enable
an investor to decide to purchase or subscribe for any New Ordinary Shares.

 

In the case of any New Ordinary Shares being offered to a financial
intermediary within the EEA, as that term is used in the Prospectus
Regulation, such financial intermediary will be deemed to have represented,
warranted, acknowledged and agreed that the New Ordinary Shares purchased
and/or subscribed for by it in the Issue have not been purchased and/or
subscribed for on a non-discretionary basis on behalf of, nor have they been
purchased and/or subscribed for with a view to their offer or resale to,
persons in circumstances which may give rise to an offer of any New Ordinary
Shares to the public other than their offer or resale in a Member State to
"qualified investors" (as defined in the Prospectus Regulation) or in
circumstances in which the prior consent of Stifel has been obtained to each
such proposed offer or resale.

 

In the case of any New Ordinary Shares being offered to a financial
intermediary within the United Kingdom as that term is used in the UK
Prospectus Regulation, such financial intermediary will be deemed to have
represented, warranted, acknowledged and agreed that the New Ordinary Shares
purchased and/or subscribed for by it in the Issue have not been purchased
and/or subscribed for on a non-discretionary basis on behalf of, nor have they
been purchased and/or subscribed for with a view to their offer or resale to,
persons in circumstances which may give rise to an offer of any New Ordinary
Shares to the public other than their offer or resale in the United Kingdom to
"qualified investors" (as defined in the UK Prospectus Regulation) or in
circumstances in which the prior consent of Stifel has been obtained to each
such proposed offer or resale.

 

The Company and its affiliates, representatives and others will rely upon the
truth and accuracy of the foregoing representation, warranty, acknowledgement
and agreement. Notwithstanding the above, a person who is not a qualified
investor and who has notified Stifel of such fact in writing may, with the
consent of Stifel, be permitted to subscribe for and/or purchase New Ordinary
Shares in the Issue.

 

The New Ordinary Shares have not been and will not be registered under the
Financial Instruments and Exchange Act of Japan (Law No. 25 of 1948 as
amended) ("Financial Instruments and Exchange Act"), and may not be offered or
sold, directly or indirectly, in Japan or to, or for the benefit of, a
resident of Japan (including any corporation or entity organised under the
laws of Japan) or to others for re-offering or resale, directly or indirectly,
in Japan, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements
of, and otherwise in compliance with, the Securities and Exchange Law and
other relevant laws and regulations of Japan.

 

This document will not be registered as a prospectus in terms of the Companies
Act 1973 in South Africa and, as such, any offer of New Ordinary Shares in
South Africa may only be made if it shall not be capable of being construed as
an offer to the public as envisaged by section 144 of the Companies Act 1973
in South Africa. Furthermore, any offer or sale of the New Ordinary Shares
shall be subject to compliance with South Africa's exchange control
regulations.

 

The New Ordinary Shares and any related services, information and opinions
described or referenced in this Announcement and the Prospectus (as amended
and supplemented by the Supplementary Prospectus) are not, and may not be,
offered or marketed to or directed at persons in Switzerland (a) that do not
meet the definition of "qualified investor" pursuant to the Swiss Federal Act
on Collective Investment Schemes of 23 June 2006 ("CISA") ("Non-Qualified
Investors"), or (b) that are high net worth individuals (including private
investment structures established for such high-net worth individuals if they
do not have professional treasury operations) that have opted out of customer
protection under the Swiss Federal Financial Services Act of 15 June 2018
("FinSA") and that have elected to be treated as "professional clients" and
"qualified investors" under the FinSA and the CISA, respectively ("Elective
Qualified Investors"), or (c) that are retail clients for whom a financial
intermediary in accordance with Article 4 paragraph 3 lit. (a) FinSA or a
foreign financial intermediary that is subject to equivalent prudential
supervision provides investment advice in accordance with Article 3 lit. (c)
item 4 FinSA within the scope of a permanent investment advice relationship
("Investment Advisory Clients").

 

In particular, none of the information provided in this Announcement and the
Prospectus (as amended and supplemented by the Supplementary Prospectus)
should be construed as an offer in Switzerland for the purchase or sale of New
Ordinary Shares or any related services, nor as advertising in Switzerland for
New Ordinary Shares or any related services, to or directed at Non-Qualified
Investors, Elective Qualified Investors or Investment Advisory Clients.
Circulating or otherwise providing access to this Announcement, the Prospectus
or the Supplementary Prospectus or offering, advertising or selling New
Ordinary Shares or any related services to Non-Qualified Investors, Elective
Qualified Investors or Investment Advisory Clients may trigger, in particular,
approval requirements and other regulatory requirements in Switzerland.

 

The New Ordinary Shares and any related services may not be (and are not
hereby) publicly offered, directly or indirectly, in Switzerland within the
meaning of the FinSA and no application has or will be made to admit the New
Ordinary Shares to trading on any trading venue (exchange or multilateral
trading facility) in Switzerland. Neither this Announcement, the Prospectus,
the Supplementary Prospectus nor any other offering or marketing material
relating to the New Ordinary Shares constitutes a prospectus pursuant to the
FinSA or pursuant to Swiss trading venue rules and it may thus not fulfil the
information standards established thereunder. No key information document
pursuant to Swiss law has been established for the New Ordinary Shares.
Neither this Announcement, the Prospectus, the Supplementary Prospectus nor
any other offering or marketing material relating to the New Ordinary Shares
may be listed, distributed or otherwise made publicly available in
Switzerland.

 

This Announcement, the Prospectus and the Supplementary Prospectus have not
been and will not be approved, and may not be able to be approved, by the
Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA ("FINMA") under the CISA.
Therefore, investors will not benefit from protection under CISA or
supervision by FINMA. These materials do in particular not constitute
investment advice.

 

 

The Issue is not a public offering (within the meaning of the Securities Act)
of securities in the United States. The New Ordinary Shares have not been, and
will not be, registered under the Securities Act or with any securities
regulatory authority of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States
and may not be offered or sold in the United States except in reliance on
Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act or in a transaction not subject to the
registration requirements of the Securities Act and in accordance with
applicable securities laws of any securities regulatory authority of any state
or other jurisdiction of the United States.

Information to Distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained
within: (a) the Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook of the
FCA Handbook; and (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU)
2017/593 supplementing MiFID II, which is incorporated into UK law by virtue
of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended by The Markets in
Financial Instruments (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, as amended from

disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or
otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product
Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the New
Ordinary Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has
determined that the New Ordinary Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target
market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional
clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in the FCA Handbook; and

permitted under applicable law (the "Target Market Assessment").
