BB Healthcare Trust - Voluntary Redemption of Ordinary Shares

RNS Number : 2885B
BB Healthcare Trust PLC
06 October 2020



6 October 2020


The Company operates a voluntary redemption facility through which shareholders may request the redemption of all or part of their holding of redeemable ordinary shares of 1p each ("Ordinary Shares") for cash on the last business day in November each year.

There is no requirement for shareholders to take any action should they wish to retain their Ordinary Shares.  As at close of business on 5 October 2020, the Ordinary Share price was 167.0p and the net asset value (including current period revenue) was 167.54p per Ordinary Share, therefore the Ordinary Shares were trading at a 0.3% discount. In the 12 months to 5 October 2020 the Company traded at an average premium to the net asset value (including current period revenue) of 0.5%.

A redemption of Ordinary Shares may be subject to income tax and capital gains tax.  In particular, private shareholders that sell their shares via the redemption mechanism could find they are subject to income tax on the gains made on the redeemed shares rather than capital gains tax on the sale of their shares in the market.  However, individual circumstances do vary, therefore shareholders who are in any doubt about the redemption or the action that should be taken should seek independent professional advice.

None of the Directors of the Company will be redeeming any of their shares under the redemption facility.

Shareholders submitting valid requests for the redemption of Ordinary Shares will have their shares redeemed at the Redemption Price.

The Directors may elect, at their absolute discretion, to calculate the Redemption Price on either of the following bases:

1.    The Redemption Price shall be equal to the Dealing Value per Ordinary Share calculated as at the appropriate Valuation Point on the appropriate Redemption Point; or

2.    The Directors may elect to calculate the Redemption Price by reference to the amount generated upon the realisation of a Redemption Pool created for the purpose of funding the redemption.

The Directors are minded to approve all valid redemption requests unless there are exceptional reasons why this would be contrary to the interests of shareholders.

Shareholders wishing to request the redemption of all or any of their certificated Ordinary Shares at the proposed Redemption Point should deliver to the Company's Registrar a duly completed Redemption Request form together with their share certificate or for uncertificated Ordinary Shares a Transfer to Escrow ("TTE") instruction in accordance with the timetable set out below.  Redemption Request forms are available from the Company's website http://www.bbhealthcaretrust.com/en/news/factsheets-articles/ or from the Company's Registrar, Link Asset Services (details below).
