Downing Renewables & Infrastructure Trust plc

("DORE" or "the Company")

PrimaryBid Offer

Downing Renewables & Infrastructure Trust plc (LSE: DORE) , the main market listed investment trust that aims to provide investors with a sustainable level of income, with an element of capital growth, by investing in a diversified portfolio of renewable energy and infrastructure assets in the UK and Northern Europe , is pleased to announce, a conditional offer for subscription via the PrimaryBid platform (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 102.50 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price").

The Issue Price represents a discount of 1.68 per cent. to the Company's closing share price of 104.25 per Ordinary Share on 28 September 2021 (being the last business day prior to the date of publication of the announcement regarding a proposed equity raise on 29 September 2021 (the "Placing Announcement") ) and a premium of 3.33 per cent. to the unaudited ex-dividend net asset value per share as at 30 June 2021. The Company is also conducting a placing of new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price (the "Placing") as announced in the Placing Announcement.

The PrimaryBid Offer and the Placing are conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer and the Placing being admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("Admission"). Admission is expected to be take place on or around 8.00 a.m. on 18 October 2021 . The PrimaryBid Offer will not be completed without the Placing also being completed.

The Company will use the funds raised to take advantage of pipeline assets identified by the Investment Manager, including four opportunities over which the Investment Manager has secured exclusivity or is in bilateral negotiations with a total investment amount of c.GBP87 million, and a wider pipeline of assets in Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Poland and UK with a total investment amount in excess of GBP4.3 billion.(1)

The New Ordinary Shares will qualify for the dividend to be paid in respect of the three months to 30 September 2021, expected to be 1.25 pence per Ordinary Share in line with the recently updated dividend guidance.(2)

PrimaryBid Offer

The Company values its retail investor base and is therefore pleased to provide private and other investors the opportunity to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the PrimaryBid mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, which is being made by the Company via the PrimaryBid mobile app, is now open. The PrimaryBid Offer is expected to close at 1.00 p.m. on 13 October 2021. The PrimaryBid Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

There is a minimum subscription of GBP1025 per investor under the terms of the PrimaryBid Offer which is open to private and other investors.

The Company reserves the right to scale back any order at its absolute discretion. The Company and PrimaryBid each also reserve the right to reject any application for subscription under the PrimaryBid Offer without giving any reason for such rejection.

No commission will be charged to investors on applications to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer made through PrimaryBid. It is important to note that once an application for New Ordinary Shares has been made and accepted via PrimaryBid, it cannot be withdrawn.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued free of all liens, charges and encumbrances and will, when issued be fully paid and rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing Ordinary Shares including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after their date of issue. For the avoidance of doubt, the New Ordinary Shares will not be eligible for the dividend of 1.0p per Ordinary Share that was declared on 2 September 2021 and quoted ex-dividend on 9 September 2021. The New Ordinary Shares will qualify for the dividend to be paid in respect of the three months to 30 September 2021, expected to be 1.25 pence per Ordinary Share in line with the recently updated dividend guidance.(2)

It is a term of the PrimaryBid Offer that the total value of the New Ordinary Shares available for subscription at the Issue Price does not exceed EUR8 million (or the GBP equivalent). Accordingly, the Company is not required to publish (and has not published) a prospectus in connection with the PrimaryBid Offer as it falls within the exemption set out in section 86(1)(e) and 86(4) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. The PrimaryBid Offer is only being made in the UK, and is not being made in any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so. Persons who are resident or otherwise located outside of the UK will not be eligible to register for participation in the offer through PrimaryBid or subscribe for the New Ordinary Shares.

For further information on PrimaryBid or the procedure for applications under the PrimaryBid Offer, visit www.PrimaryBid.com or email PrimaryBid at enquiries@primarybid.com.

Investors should make their own investigations into the merits of an investment in the Company. Nothing in this Announcement amounts to a recommendation to invest in the Company or amounts to investment, taxation or legal advice.

It should be noted that a subscription for New Ordinary Shares and investment in the Company carries a number of risks. Investors should consider the risk factors set out on www.PrimaryBid.com before making a decision to subscribe for New Ordinary Shares. Investors should take independent advice from a person experienced in advising on investment in securities such as the New Ordinary Shares if they are in any doubt.
