TARGET HEALTHCARE REIT PLC

("Target" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group")

Results of Initial Issue

The Board of Directors of the Company is pleased to announce that it has successfully raised gross proceeds of £60 million through an oversubscribed issue of 54,054,054 Ordinary Shares ("New Shares") by way of an Initial Placing, Intermediaries Offer and Offer for Subscription (the "Initial Issue").

After careful consideration of the strong level of support and quality of demand from investors in the Initial Issue alongside the pipeline of suitable investment properties available, the Board determined to increase the size of the Initial Issue from £50 million to £60 million. Notwithstanding the increased number of New Shares made available pursuant to the Initial Issue, investor demand still exceeded the gross proceeds targeted and as such a scaling back exercise has been undertaken.

The Company has received valid acceptances under the Offer for Subscription from investors in respect of 4,900,304 New Shares and a further 1,251,300 New Shares under the Intermediaries Offer. In addition, a total of 47,902,450 New Shares were taken up pursuant to the Initial Placing.

 

The Initial Issue is conditional, amongst other things, upon the passing of the Resolutions at the General Meeting to be held at 12.00 p.m. on 1 March 2021, Admission of the Ordinary Shares occurring no later than 8.00 a.m. on 3 March 2021 (or such later time and/or date as the Company, Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited ("Stifel") and Dickson Minto W.S. ("Dickson Minto" or "DM") may agree) and the Placing Agreement not being terminated and becoming unconditional in accordance with its terms.

Admission

 

Applications will be made in respect of the 54,054,054 New Shares to be issued pursuant to the Initial Issue to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings in the New Shares will commence on 3 March 2021. When issued, the New Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all future dividends and distributions declared, made or paid after Admission.

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Company will have 511,541,694 Ordinary Shares in issue. The total number of voting rights of the Company will be 511,541,694 and 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 share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The New Shares will be issued in registered form and may be held in uncertificated form. The New Shares allocated will be issued through the CREST system unless otherwise stated. The New Shares will be eligible for settlement through CREST with effect from Admission.

 

Malcolm Naish, Chairman of the Company, said: 

"We are very pleased to have completed this oversubscribed equity raise and would like to thank all our investors for their ongoing support. Given the challenges that our sector has faced over the past 12 months, this is a strong endorsement of the Company's investment case, purpose and outlook as we emerge from this pandemic and resume the careful expansion of the portfolio in line with our stringent investment strategy."
