Cash Distribution

EF Realisation Company Limited
15 March 2019

EF Realisation Company Limited (In Liquidation) ("EF Realisation")

Progress in Realising Investments and Third Distribution

EF Realisation has continued to make progress in realising its investments and has now realised a total equivalent of GBP 2.8m from its investment in Eastern Australia Irrigation Ltd ("EAI").  

EF Realisation is committed to passing realisation proceeds to its shareholders as soon as reasonably practical once the proceeds reach material amounts, and a third distribution of 5.8 pence per EF Realisation share has been authorised on 15 March 2019. Due to processing costs, cash distribution will not be made for sums of £10 or less.

This cash distribution will be made through CREST for EF Realisation shareholders holding their shares in CREST or by cheque for other shareholders on or about 1 April 2019.

Please note that this distribution may have tax consequences and should therefore be reflected in your tax return for the current fiscal year. You are advised to contact your financial adviser should you have any queries regarding the above.

The table below shows the distributions made by EF Realisation since it was placed into liquidation on 24 September 2018, and the distribution authorised on 14 March 2019.

In the Shareholder Circular dated 10 September, 2018, EF Realisation included an indicative calculation for expected distributions, excluding Lonestar-related distributions totalling 22.1p per share. Excluding the initial Lonestar distribution, distributions to date total to 10.3p per share.

The Joint Liquidators continue to seek the realisation of the other material remaining asset, being the investment in water rights in Arizona known as "TRF Interests". At present it is not possible to provide an estimation of the timing or amount of any realisation from this investment, and it is not known when further distributions may be paid.

 The Joint Liquidators do not intend to release any further announcement until the Annual Report and AGM in October 2019, unless further realisations are achieved before then.
