Proposed Purchase of 1 in every 44 Ordinary Shares of 1p each in the Company at 55p per share

Raven Property Group Limited
Incorporated in Guernsey
Company number 43371
LSE share code: RAV; JSE share code: RAV
(“Raven” or the “Company”)


    Proposed Purchase of 1 in every 44 Ordinary Shares of 1p each in the Company
   (“Ordinary Shares”) at 55p per share by way of a tender offer (the “Tender Offer”)

                                  Notice of General Meeting

Raven is today posting a circular to its shareholders containing full details of the Tender Offer
and a notice of General Meeting convened for 10.30 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time (“GMT”) on
Friday 8 November 2019.

On 27 August 2019, the Board of Raven announced in its Interim Results for the six months
ended 30 June 2019, that the Company intended to offer to purchase 1 in every 44 Ordinary
Shares by way of a tender offer at a price of 55p per share. The Tender Offer will also present
tendering shareholders with an opportunity to sell more than their pro rata entitlement (up to
their entire holding of Ordinary Shares) to the extent that other shareholders tender less than
their pro rata entitlement. In such case, surplus tenders will be accepted in proportion to the
number of additional Ordinary Shares tendered so that the total number of Ordinary Shares
purchased does not exceed 11,621,569 (assuming no valid conversion of the Company's
Convertible Preference Shares in the period).

If the maximum number of 11,621,569 Ordinary Shares is acquired (assuming no valid
conversion of the Company's Convertible Preference Shares in the period), this will result in
an amount of approximately £6.4 million being paid by the Company to its shareholders. It is
intended that the Ordinary Shares purchased under the Tender Offer will be cancelled and
not available for re-issue.

The Tender Offer is open to all holders of Ordinary Shares on the Company's register at 6.00
p.m. GMT on Thursday 7 November 2019, who may participate by tendering all or a
proportion of their holding of Ordinary Shares at 55p per share. Holders of Convertible
Preference Shares who wish to participate in the Tender Offer will be required to convert their
shares by Friday 1 November 2019 in accordance with the terms of the Company's Articles.
No Ordinary Shares will be purchased in relation to the Tender Offer unless the relevant
resolution to be proposed at the General Meeting is passed.

Shareholders on the Company’s South African register should refer to the separate Letter to
South African Shareholders for details of the action to be taken in relation to the Tender Offer
and the General Meeting.
