('Esken' or 'the Group')

Response to press speculation

Esken Limited, the aviation and energy infrastructure group, notes the recent press speculation regarding a potential strategic partnership for London Southend Airport (LSA).

The Group confirms that it is in the final stages of agreeing the documentation with Carlyle Global Infrastructure Opportunity Fund with regards to a long term strategic funding transaction relating to the development of LSA. Under the proposed terms of the partnership, Carlyle would provide GBP120 million of funding net of Carlyle costs via a loan (convertible at Carlyle's option into an equity stake of 29.99% in LSA), which would release GBP100m of liquidity into the rest of the Group.

This announcement should be read in conjunction with Esken's trading update released earlier today, with RNS Number 7124B. The transaction would be subject to a number of conditions, including Esken obtaining shareholder approval. Esken cautions that no guarantees can be given at this stage that the transaction will be concluded.
