Inland Homes plc
Inland Homes plc (AIM: INL) ("Inland", the "Company" and, together with its subsidiary undertakings, the "Group"), a leading brownfield developer, housebuilder and partnership housing company with a focus on the south and south-east of England, is pleased to announce, following today's earlier announcement (the "Placing Announcement"), a conditional offer for subscription via PrimaryBid (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the capital of the Company (the "PrimaryBid Subscription Shares") at an issue price of 47.5 pence per share (the "Issue Price").
Capitalised terms used in the Placing Announcement have the same meanings in this announcement.
As set out in the Placing Announcement, the Company is also today conducting a Placing of new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price by way of an accelerated bookbuild process managed by Panmure Gordon, as agent for and on behalf of the Company. The Capital Raising will raise up to £9.9 million (before expenses).
The Issue Price represents a discount of 11.2 per cent. to the closing middle market price of an Ordinary Share on 29 April 2020 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of this announcement).
The PrimaryBid Offer and the Placing are conditional upon the New Ordinary Shares being admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Admission is expected to be take place at or around 8.00 a.m. on 6 May 2020. Completion of the PrimaryBid Offer is conditional upon the Placing becoming unconditional in all respects.
The Company will use the net proceeds of the PrimaryBid Offer as described more fully in the Placing Announcement.

Further details of the PrimaryBid Offer
The Company highly values its retail investor base which has supported the Company over several years. Given this longstanding support, the Company believes that it is appropriate to provide retail and other interested investors with the opportunity to participate in the Capital Raising through the PrimaryBid Offer. The Company is therefore making the PrimaryBid Offer available exclusively through PrimaryBid.com.
It is a term of the PrimaryBid Offer that the total value of PrimaryBid Subscription Shares available for subscription at the Issue Price does not exceed €8 million equivalent. Accordingly, the Company is not required to publish (and has not published) a prospectus in connection with the PrimaryBid Offer as it falls within the exemption set out in section 86(1)(e) and 86(4) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. The PrimaryBid Offer is not being made into any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.
The PrimaryBid Offer is open to existing shareholders and other individual investors subscribing via PrimaryBid.com. There is a minimum subscription of £100 per investor under the terms of the PrimaryBid Offer and allocations will be filled on a "first come first served" basis.
The Company, in consultation with PrimaryBid, reserves the right to scale back any order at its discretion.
For further details please refer to www.PrimaryBid.com. The terms and conditions on which the Offer is made, including the procedure for application and payment for PrimaryBid Subscription Shares, is available to all persons who register with PrimaryBid.com.
It should be noted that a subscription for the PrimaryBid Subscription Shares and any investment in the Company carry a number of risks. Investors should make their own investigations into the merits of an investment in the Company. Nothing in this announcement amounts to a recommendation to invest in the Company or amounts to investment, taxation or legal advice. Investors should take independent advice from a person experienced in advising on investment in securities such as the Ordinary Shares if they are in any doubt.
