NewRiver Retail Limited


("NewRiver" or the "Company")


Conversion of Loan Stock


The Company has received notices to convert £17,000,000 of its 5.85 per cent. A Convertible Loan Stock 2015 ("A CULS") into ordinary shares of no par value ("Ordinary Shares") from FNRR Holdings Limited. Following the conversion, there will be no loan stock outstanding. At the conversion price of 243 pence per Ordinary Share this will result in the issue of 6,995,884 Ordinary Shares. Accordingly, the Company has applied to the London Stock Exchange for the 6,995,884 Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will occur at 8.00am on 30 November 2015. The Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares in the capital of the Company then in issue.      

Following the conversion, the Company's issued share capital will be 187,313,809 ordinary shares of no par value. The Company holds 454,345 ordinary shares of no par value in the Company's Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT"). As the EBT is consolidated, these shares are treated as treasury shares.

The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 186,859,464. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
