Electra Private Equity PLC

Publication of Circular to Shareholders containing a Notice of General Meeting

9 December 2021

Further to its announcement earlier today, Electra Private Equity PLC ("Electra" or the "Company") announces that it has published a shareholder circular (the "Circular"), having received approval from the Financial Conduct Authority, which will be posted to shareholders shortly.

The Circular relates to the proposed cancellation of the Company's ordinary shares to the premium segment of the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("Delisting") and proposed application for admission to listing on the London Stock Exchange AIM market ("AIM") as Unbound Group PLC ("Admission") and related matters (the "Proposals"). The Proposals include Electra's entry into a related party transaction (within the meaning of Listing Rule 11.1.5R) (the "Related Party Transaction") with Ian Watson who is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Electra's Hotter business (and, as a consequence, a statutory director of a subsidiary company of Electra) and who will become an executive director of Unbound Group PLC on Admission, summary details of which were included in the Company's announcement earlier today and further details of which are included in the Circular. Completion of the Related Party Transaction will be conditional upon receiving shareholder approval to the Proposals at the General Meeting.

The Circular contains a notice convening a General Meeting of the Company at which approval will be sought from shareholders for implementation of the Proposals. The General Meeting will be held at 11.00am on 30 December 2021 at the offices of Hogan Lovells International LLP at Atlantic House, 50 Holborn Viaduct, London, EC1A 2FG.

Subject to the passing of the necessary shareholder resolutions at the General Meeting, it is expected that the Delisting will occur at 8.00am on 31 January 2022 at which time the Company's ordinary shares are expected to be admitted to trading on AIM.

A copy of the Circular will shortly be made available on Electra's website at www.electraequity.com . The Circular and Notice of General Meeting will also be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism to be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism .
