("INPP" or the "Company")

Result of Placing, Open Offer, Offer for Subscription and Intermediaries Offer

Further to the announcement on 8 April 2022, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of INPP is pleased to announce that the Company has successfully completed its Placing, Open Offer, Offer for Subscription and Intermediaries Offer (together, the " Initial Issue " ).

The Initial Issue was oversubscribed several times over, with support from both new and existing investors. In light of this significant demand the Board has elected to increase the size of the Initial Issue from the initial target amount of GBP250 million to the maximum New Shares available under the Initial Issue, raising gross proceeds of GBP325 million. Notwithstanding this the demand was such that investors not benefiting from pre-emptive rights have been scaled back. The proceeds raised will be used to pay down the cash drawn portion of the Company's corporate debt facility totalling approximately GBP156.2 million as at 6 April 2022 and to provide additional resources to pursue the Company's investment pipeline.

In undertaking the allocation process the Company has made every effort to balance the needs between current and prospective shareholders with particular reference to those existing long-standing investors who have supported the Company through its growth. The Company looks forward to developing similar long-term relationships with its new shareholders.

Michael Gerrard, Chair of INPP, said: " Thanks to the support of both existing and new investors , we have significantly increased the size of our initial target raise of GBP250 million, completing a total capital raise of GBP325 million. The over-subscribed issue firmly demonstrates the attractiveness of INPP's investment case. The proceeds of the capital raise will be deployed to repay the Company's corporate debt facility and support our investment pipeline. We continue to aim to deliver long-term financial returns for investors that also support the drive towards a more sustainable future for the communities we serve."
