The Company made a bonus issue of Subscription Shares on 24 September 2015, on the basis of one Subscription Share for every five Existing Ordinary Shares held on 22 September 2015. Each Subscription Share confers the right (but not the obligation) to subscribe for one Ordinary Share on exercise of the Subscription Shares Rights and on payment of the Subscription Price. The Subscription Share Rights may be exercised on the last business day of each of August 2017 and February 2018, following which they will lapse. The Subscription Price is 183p per share, equal to the unaudited published NAV per Ordinary Share as at 5.00p.m. on 22 September 2015, plus a one per cent premium to such NAV per Ordinary Share, rounded up to the nearest whole pence.
UEM has a £50.0m multi-currency facility with Scotiabank Europe plc, which is repayable on 27 April 2018, unless renewed or extended.
