Hadrian's Wall Secured Investments Limited

Intention to raise additional capital - Replacement

This announcement replaces the announcement made on 2 February 2018, headed 'Intention to raise additional capital', having RNS number 8071D, (the "Previous Announcement"). The ISIN contained in the Previous Announcement, being the same ISIN as the currently in issue C shares, was not correct and the new C shares to be issued pursuant to the placing will have a different ISIN as follows - GG00BG04CB85.  For completeness the Previous Announcement is being restated here and the content is the same, save that the ISIN has been corrected.

As announced earlier today, Hadrian's Wall Secured Investments Limited (the "Company") had, as at 31 January 2018, deployed £38 million of the proceeds of its previous C Share fundraising, including loans that are closed and committed loans in documentation, and intends to convert those C Shares into Ordinary Shares later this month. The Company is actively negotiating additional potential loans and the investment opportunities for the Company remain robust. Consequently, the Company projects that all of its available investment capital will be fully deployed before the end of the first quarter of 2018.

The Company's loan portfolio is spread across a number of sectors including manufacturing, energy, autos, healthcare and property. All loans are secured over underlying assets and the weighted average annualised portfolio gross yield, before expenses and exclusive of upfront or other fees, on invested assets is 9.2%.

The directors of the Company are therefore pleased to announce that the Company is seeking to raise additional capital through the issue (the "Issue") of a new tranche of C Shares (the "New C Shares") by way of a placing as part of the share issuance programme (the "Share Issuance Programme") created pursuant to the prospectus published by the Company on 2 May 2017 (the "Prospectus").  The Company is seeking to raise up to £50 million through the Issue.

The net proceeds from the Issue will be used to enter into loan transactions in the Company's pipeline and it is expected that deployment will be completed within a period of approximately six to nine months, although this will depend on the amount of capital raised pursuant to the Issue.

The Prospectus, and a supplement thereto published on 23 October 2017 in respect of the Company's 2017 annual report and accounts, are available on the Company's website at www.hadrianswallcapital.com/hwsil and from the National Storage Mechanism at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.

Winterflood Securities Limited is acting as sole sponsor, financial adviser and bookrunner to the Company.

Terms used in this announcement shall, unless the context otherwise requires, bear the meanings given to them in the Prospectus.

Admission and dealings

The New C Shares will have the following ISIN and ticker, respectively: GG00BG04CB85 and HWSC.

Applications will be made to the UK Listing Authority and to the London Stock Exchange for the New C Shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List and to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange, respectively. It is expected that admission will become effective and that dealings in the C Shares will commence on or around 12 March 2018.
