(Raven or the Company)

                                 Conditional purchase of its own ordinary shares

The Board of Raven refers to its announcement of earlier today and announces that the Company has
now entered into a conditional agreement to purchase off-market 139,678,106 of its ordinary shares from
Invesco Asset Management Limited (acting as agent for its underlying funds) (IAML), representing
28.5% of the Companys current issued ordinary share capital. The purchase price for the shares to be
acquired by the Company is 36 pence per ordinary share, payable in cash.

The shares proposed to be acquired represent all of the ordinary shares in the Company held by funds
managed by IAML. The proposed purchase of these shares will be a related party transaction under the
FCAs Listing Rules as IAML and its underlying funds are together a substantial shareholder of the
Company for the purposes of the Listing Rules.

The Company is progressing negotiations regarding the financing required to purchase the shares and
will provide an update in due course.

The purchase will be conditional, inter alia, on ordinary shareholders, preference shareholders and
convertible preference shareholders passing the resolutions necessary to authorise the transaction.

The Company intends to hold the ordinary shares purchased in treasury.

At 30 June 2019 the Company reported a net asset value per share of 67 pence. Following the purchase
and cancellation of ordinary shares in August 2019 and October 2019, together with the 8 November
2019 tender offer and assuming completion of the purchase of ordinary shares outlined above, on a pro
forma basis, the equivalent net asset value per share will increase by 32.8% to 89 pence per share*.

The Company intends to post circulars (including notices of meetings) to ordinary shareholders,
preference shareholders and convertible preference shareholders in respect of the transaction outlined
above in January 2020 and a further announcement will be made at such time.


The information contained within this announcement relating to the purchase by Company of its own
shares is considered by Raven Property Group Limited to constitute inside information as stipulated
under the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No.596/2014. Upon the publication of this announcement via a
Regulatory Information Service, this inside information will be considered to be in the public domain.

The person responsible for arranging for the release of this announcement on behalf of the Company is
Benn Garnham, Company Secretary.

*assuming no conversion of convertible preference shares of no par value in the capital of the Company
