First Day of Dealings on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange
Further to previous announcements Secure Trust is pleased to announce that the Company's shares will today be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority (the "Official List") and to trading on London Stock Exchange plc's main market ("Main Market") for listed securities (together, "Admission"). Dealings in the Company's shares will commence on the Main Market at 8.00 a.m. on 12 October 2016 and trading in the Company's shares on the AIM market of London Stock Exchange plc ("AIM") will be cancelled simultaneously therewith.
The Company is not raising any funds or issuing any new shares in connection with Admission. No shares have been offered or marketed to the public in the UK or elsewhere in connection with Admission or the publication of the related prospectus. The Company's shares will continue to be registered with their existing ISIN number GB00B6TKHP66 and SEDOL number B6TKHP6. The Company's TIDM code on the London Stock Exchange will continue to be 'STB'. At Admission there will be 18,191,894 ordinary shares in the Company in issue.

Copies of the prospectus are also available at the Company's registered office at One Arleston Way, Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, B90 4LH.
Paul Lynam, Chief Executive, said:
"Secure Trust Bank has been in business since 1952 and since our IPO on AIM on 2 November 2011, we have delivered total shareholder returns of nearly 300%. Today's Listing on the Main Market is another very important milestone in our development. I congratulate all of my colleagues on this considerable achievement. The Directors continue to believe that over time Brexit will create more opportunities than threats for well-funded and well-capitalised smaller banks. We look to the future with confidence."
