As previously announced, on 30 October 2020 the Company signed a conditional investment agreement whereby KED Victoria Investments, LLC, an affiliate of Koch Equity Development, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc., committed to invest a total of GBP175 million by way of convertible preferred shares to be issued by Victoria (the "Preferred Equity Investment"). GBP75 million will be invested immediately; the balance at Victoria's request at any time in the next 18 months.

The Preferred Equity Investment was conditional upon shareholder approval and, following the passing of all resolutions at today's General Meeting, the Company is pleased to announce the completion of this transaction.

Executive Chairman Geoff Wilding commented:

"Firstly, I would like to thank shareholders for their support with over 85% of shareholders voting and, of those, 99% voting in favour of the investment by Koch Equity Development. This investment will enable Victoria to accelerate its growth plans to acquire up to GBP100 million of EBITDA, which will be truly transformational for the company in terms of per share earnings and cash flow."
