Results of Placing

 

Brewin Dolphin is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Placing announced earlier today (the "Placing").

 

A total of 19,672,131 new ordinary shares of one pence each in Brewin Dolphin (the "Placing Shares") have been placed by Liberum and RBC, (the "Joint Bookrunners") at a price of 305 pence per Placing Share, with institutional investors, raising gross proceeds of approximately £60 million.

 

The Placing Shares being issued represent, in aggregate, approximately 6.9 per cent. of Brewin Dolphin's issued ordinary share capital prior to the Placing. The Placing Price represents a discount of 5.0 per cent. to the closing price of the Company's issued ordinary shares on 9 May 2019.

 

Application will be made to the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") for admission of the Placing Shares to the premium listing segment of the Official List and to the London Stock Exchange (the "LSE") for admission to trading of the Placing Shares on the LSE's Main Market for listed securities (together "Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 14 May 2019 and that dealings in the Placing Shares on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities will commence at the same time.

 

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid on or in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

 

Following Admission, the total number of shares of the Company in issue will be 303,135,776 and the total number of voting shares in the Company will be 303,135,776. 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement have the same meanings as set out in the Placing Announcement of the Company released at 07:00 AM on the date hereof.

 

David Nicol, Chief Executive Officer, Brewin Dolphin said:

 

"We are pleased to report the successful completion of the equity placing, which enables us to maintain a strong regulatory capital level and have continued financial flexibility for further development opportunities."

 

The person responsible for arranging this announcement on behalf of Brewin Dolphin is Tiffany Brill, Company Secretary.

Persons (including, without limitation, nominees and trustees) who have a contractual right or other legal obligations to forward a copy of this Announcement should seek appropriate advice before taking any action.

This Announcement may contain and the Company may make verbal statements containing "forward-looking statements" with respect to certain of the Company's plans and its current goals and expectations relating to its future financial condition, performance, strategic initiatives, objectives and results.  Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as "aim", "anticipate", "target", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "goal", "believe", "seek", "may", "could", "outlook" or other words of similar meaning.  By their nature, all forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances which are beyond the control of the Company, including amongst other things, United Kingdom domestic and global economic business conditions, market-related risks such as fluctuations in interest rates and exchange rates, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, the effect of competition, inflation, deflation, the timing effect and other uncertainties of future acquisitions or combinations within relevant industries, the effect of tax and other legislation and other regulations in the jurisdictions in which the Company and its respective affiliates operate, the effect of volatility in the equity, capital and credit markets on the Company's profitability and ability to access capital and credit, a decline in the Company's credit ratings; the effect of operational risks; and the loss of key personnel.  As a result, the actual future financial condition, performance and results of the Company may differ materially from the plans, goals and expectations set forth in any forward-looking statements.  Any forward-looking statements made in this Announcement by or on behalf of the Company speak only as of the date they are made.  Except as required by applicable law or regulation, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to publish any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in this Announcement to reflect any changes in the Company's expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Placing Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of (a) retail investors, (b) investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and (c) eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Joint Bookrunners will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Placing Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
