Dignity plc - Special Call

To consider the launch of a proposal to the existing holders of its securitized debt

Dignity Seeks Acquisitions

Dignity plc (LSE:DTY) is seeking acquisitions. Dignity said, "If all the proposals presented to the meeting are approved, the Group intends that in addition to the New Notes issued in consideration for the Existing Notes, further New Notes will be issued for cash and that of the anticipated net proceeds of approximately £70 million, approximately £54 million will be returned to shareholders in November 2014 using a similar process to that used in 2013. This would equate to a return of circa £1.00 per ordinary share. The remainder of the net proceeds will be used to terminate existing hedging arrangements of the Group of approximately £5 million and contribute £1 million to the Group's pension scheme, leaving up to £10 million to be retained for future acquisition activity. Given the longer duration of the New Notes, the overall annual debt service is anticipated to be circa £34 million per annum, approximately £6 million lower than the current level paid by the Group.”
