(the ‘Company‘ and/or ‘GCP Asset Backed‘)

LEI 213800FBBZCQMP73A815

Proposed C Share issue

26 July 2018

The Board of GCP Asset Backed, which invests in asset backed loans, today announces that it is considering increasing the Company‘s capital base through a pre-emptive offer of C shares at a price of 100 pence per C share, by way of an open offer, placing and offer for subscription, targeting gross proceeds in excess of £70 million (the ‘Issue‘).

Any issue of C shares will be used to take advantage of a pipeline of attractive investment opportunities which have been identified by Gravis Capital Management Limited (the ‘Investment Manager‘). The net proceeds of any Issue may also be used to repay any monies drawn down by the Company under its revolving credit facility with Royal Bank of Scotland International Limited which have been used to fund the whole or part of new investments in the period from 14 July 2018 (being 10 days prior to this announcement) to raising of the C share proceeds. The relevant investments (or part thereof, as appropriate) and interest accrued thereon will be allocated to the pool of assets and NAV attributed to the C shares and will be accounted for in this separate pool of C share assets until the C shares convert into new ordinary shares.

Any issue of C shares will be subject to the approval of a prospectus in connection with the Issue by the UK Listing Authority. It is currently expected that, should the Company proceed with the Issue, a prospectus in connection with the Issue will be published in September 2018 and trading in the C shares will commence in October 2018.

The Company will make a further announcement in due course.
