Marwyn Value Investors Limited (the "Company" or "MVIL")

Additional investment in Zegona Communications plc ("Zegona")


The Company announces that the underlying funds in which it is invested both directly and indirectly (the "Funds") have subscribed for £10 million of new ordinary shares in Zegona as part of Zegona's placing to fund the acquisition of additional shares in Euskaltel, S.A. through market purchases at a price it considers attractive for its shareholders based on the market conditions (the "Placing"), £7.3 million of which is attributable to the Company's Ordinary shares and £1.1 million of which is attributable to the Company's Realisation shares.

Zegona has today announced the Placing, issuing 95.7 million new ordinary shares at a price per share of 105 pence, raising equity proceeds of £100.5 million (before expenses). The shares issued (including the new ordinary shares to be owned by the Funds) are expected to be admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities at 8.00 a.m. on 11 February 2019. 

The Funds' participation in the Placing will increase the carrying value of the Funds' total investment to £44.2 million valued at the Placing price of 105 pence. The total investment attributable to the Company's Ordinary shares will be £31.9 million, representing 23.6% of the Ordinary share net asset value ("NAV") and the total investment attributable to the Realisation shares will be £4.7 million, representing 34.1% of the Realisation share NAV (NAV measured at 14 December 2018, being the latest available NAV published by the Company).

Following the Placing, the Funds will hold 19.0% of the issued share capital of Zegona, remaining the largest shareholder in Zegona.
