Inland ZDP PLC
Issue of 497,790 new ZDP Shares
For release on 3 July 2019
Issue of ZDP Shares and use of proceeds
The Board of Inland ZDP PLC ("ZDPCo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the issue of 497,790 new zero dividend preference shares of 10 pence each ("ZDP Shares") at a price of 159.00 pence each ("Placing Price"), subject to the admission of the ZDP Shares to listing on the Official List (by way of a standard listing under the Listing Rules) and to trading on London Stock Exchange plc's main market, for which applications have been made (the "Placing"). Dealings in the ZDP Shares are expected to commence at 8.00 am on 5 July 2019 ("Admission").
The terms and conditions of the Placing are set out in the Appendix to this announcement.
The gross proceeds of the Placing are up to £791,486 which ZDPCo will lend to its ultimate holding company, Inland Homes PLC ("Inland Homes"), pursuant to an interest-free secured loan note to be entered into between ZDPCo and Inland Homes on or shortly after Admission ("New Loan Note"). The New Loan Note will be on the same terms as the loan note entered into between ZDPCo and Inland Homes on 20 December 2012 as amended on 13 August 2018. Inland Homes will pay the costs of the Placing (estimated to be approximately £33,830) out of its own resources and will apply the proceeds of the Placing to invest in inventories, property development joint ventures or settle liabilities to vendors of development sites.
Rights of ZDP Shares
A ZDP Share is not an equity share and does not entitle the holder to any dividends, but it offers the holder a capital payment on a fixed date at a higher price than the initial subscription price, giving the holder a fixed return. The amount due to holders of ZDP Shares ("ZDP Shareholders"), which accrues over time, is accounted for as a liability rather than as share capital. ZDP Shareholders will receive no dividends, but are entitled to receive 201.4 pence per ZDP Share on 10 April 2024, when ZDPCo will be wound up in accordance with the terms of the ZDP Shares and the articles of association of the Company. This equates to a gross redemption yield on the 159.00p Placing Price of 5.08 per cent. per annum.
The new ZDP Shares will be identical in all respects to the zero dividend preference shares of 10 pence each of ZDPCo in issue at the date of this announcement ("Existing ZDP Shares") and, therefore, will benefit from the same security arrangements as described in the prospectus published by ZDPCo on 14 December 2012 (the "Prospectus") which were amended as described in the circular published by the Company on 19 July 2018, which are both available for download at http://www.inlandhomes.co.uk/inland-zdp-plc. In summary, these security arrangements require that Inland Homes places the gross proceeds of the Placing in the Secured Account as Pledged Cash with first priority security over that account granted to ZDPCo. Amounts may be withdrawn by Inland Homes from the Secured Account to fund the business, and reduce the debt, of the Inland Group subject to first ranking security over Pledged Assets being granted in favour of ZDPCo with sufficient value to satisfy 120 per cent. of the accrued capital entitlement of the ZDP Shares then in issue net of Pledged Cash.

Capitalised words in this announcement and which are not otherwise defined in this announcement have the same meanings as in the Prospectus unless the context otherwise requires.
Stephen Wicks, Chairman of ZDPCo, said "The Inland group is continuously expanding its activities and this tap issue will provide a useful addition to the medium term capital available via the ZDP Shares".

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE PLACING
A placee ("Placee") agrees to subscribe for those ZDP Shares allocated to it by Panmure Gordon (UK) Limited ("Panmure Gordon") and EGR Broking Limited ("EGR") (together the "Joint Brokers") at the Placing Price, subject to and conditional on, amongst other things the terms and conditions set out below, in the placing letter ("Placing Letter") and the form of confirmation accompanying the Placing Letter ("Placing Confirmation").
1. PAYMENT FOR ZDP SHARES
1.1 Each Placee must pay the Placing Price for the ZDP Shares issued to the Placee in the manner and by the time directed by Panmure Gordon. If any Placee fails to pay the Placing Price as so directed and/or by the time required, the relevant Placee's application for ZDP Shares may, at the discretion of the Joint Brokers, either be rejected or accepted and, in the latter case, paragraph 1.2 of these terms and conditions shall apply.
1.2 Each Placee is deemed to agree that if it does not comply with its obligation to pay the Placing Price for the ZDP Shares allocated to it in accordance with paragraph 1.1 of these terms and conditions and Panmure Gordon elects to accept that Placee's application, the relevant Placee shall be deemed hereby to have appointed Panmure Gordon or any nominee of Panmure Gordon as its agent to use its reasonable endeavours to sell (in one or more transactions) any or all of the ZDP Shares allocated to the Placee in respect of which payment shall not have been made as directed, and to indemnify Panmure Gordon and its affiliates on demand in respect of any liability for any costs or stamp duty reserve tax or any other liability whatsoever arising in respect of any such sale or sales. A sale of all or any of such ZDP Shares shall not release the relevant Placee from the obligation to make such payment for relevant ZDP Shares to the extent that Panmure Gordon or its nominee has failed to sell such ZDP Shares at a consideration which, after deduction of the expenses of such sale and payment of stamp duty and/or stamp duty reserve tax as aforementioned, exceeds the Placing Price.
