NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BY ANY MEANS OR MEDIA IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA, JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION.

Terms not otherwise defined in this announcement shall, unless the context otherwise requires, bear the meaning given to them in the circular published by the Company and sent to Eligible Shareholders on 9 April 2019 (the "Circular").

COLEFAX GROUP PLC (the "Company")

Result of Tender Offer

Purchase of Own Shares

and

Total Voting Rights

The Company today announces the final results of the Tender Offer, details of which were set out in the Circular.

The Company confirms that the Tender Price is 550 pence, being the lower of: (i) 550 pence; and (ii) 561.75 pence, being 105 per cent. of the average closing mid-market price per Share as derived from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List over the five Business Days immediately preceding 26 April 2019 (being the date on which the Shares are to be purchased).

The maximum aggregate number of Shares that may be purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer is 784,560 Shares (representing 8 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital).

A total of 1,171,725 Shares (representing 11.9 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital) were validly tendered by Eligible Shareholders under the Tender Offer.

All valid tenders will be satisfied in full up to the Basic Entitlement of 8 per cent., and following application of the scale-back, approximately 24.60522 per cent. of the Shares validly tendered in excess of the Basic Entitlement will also be satisfied. After application of the scale-back mechanism, a total of 784,560 Shares will therefore be purchased under the Tender Offer (representing 8 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital). The total value of all Shares purchased is GBP4.3 million.

Under the terms of the Repurchase Agreement, Peel Hunt has a put option exercisable on 26 April 2019 to require the Company to purchase from Peel Hunt the Shares purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer at the Tender Price. The Shares purchased by the Company pursuant to the exercise of the put option will be cancelled (the "Cancellation").

On completion of the Tender Offer and the Cancellation, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will be 9,022,440 Shares and the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 9,022,440. This figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company, under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules or the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014.

It is expected that cheques for Tender Offer proceeds in respect of successfully tendered Shares will be dispatched and CREST payments made on 3 May 2019. Any queries concerning the calculation of accepted tenders and administration of the Tender Offer should be addressed to Computershare Investor Services PLC on +44 (0)870 889 3295.
