Response to Press speculation


Johnston Press ("The Company") notes today's press reports regarding the Company being in discussions regarding a Regulated Apportionment Arrangement with the pension trustees and pensions regulator ("RAA").  The Company confirms that an RAA is one of a number of potential strategic options for restructuring or refinancing of the Bond being considered by the Company and its advisers and in respect of which the Company expects to discuss with relevant parties in due course.


The "Bond" refers to the Group's £220 million 8.625% senior secured notes, which become due for repayment on 1 June 2019.
