NOTES TO EDITORS

Electra Private Equity PLC

Electra is a private equity investment trust which has been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1976. Electra's investment objective is to follow a realisation strategy, which aims to crystallise value for shareholders, through balancing the timing of returning cash to shareholders with maximisation of value. Since 1st October 2016, Electra has distributed over GBP2 billion to shareholders through ordinary dividends, special dividends and share buybacks.

Unbound Group PLC

Unbound Group PLC will be the parent company for a range of brands focused on the 55+ demographic. Initially focused on Hotter Shoes, Unbound Group will provide a broader range of products and services to support and enhance the active lifestyles and wellbeing of its targeted customer community. This online, digitally led platform will be based on the foundations of Hotter as a trusted brand, cloud based digital infrastructure, and strong customer personalisation through data insight. Unbound Group's expanded offering beyond Hotter footwear will feature apparel and wellness products and services, alongside third-party complementary brands.

Hotter Shoes

Hotter Shoes has been transformed from a retail to a multi-channel business with a strong and growing digital focus over the last 2 years, and is now a fast-growing, profitable and cash-generative e-commerce focused footwear brand. Hotter provides footwear with uncompromising focus on comfort and fit through the use of differentiating technology, to a targeted demographic that values its brand and products. Hotter's direct-to-consumer channels now reach 29% of the female population in the UK over the age of 55, providing them with footwear that allows them to do more of what they love. Cultural and demographic shifts now provide an opportunity to further monetise the existing Hotter customer database and grow it through the addition of similarly themed products beyond footwear.
