GCP Asset Backed Income Fund Ltd
19 October 2016

Proposed equity raise

On 3 October the Company announced it had invested substantially all of the proceeds of its earlier C share issue, which were converted into ordinary shares on 18 October 2016.

The Investment Manager continues to see substantial asset backed investment opportunities which are consistent with the Company's investment objective and policy, including a number of immediate and attractive investments.

In light of these immediate opportunities, the Board is considering a placing of new ordinary shares in November 2016. Any such placing will be made pursuant to the exemptions to publishing a prospectus set out in the Prospectus Rules, which currently permit the issuance by the Company of up to 14,964,734 new ordinary shares on a non pre-emptive basis to qualified investors. Any placing of new ordinary shares will be at a premium to the Company's prevailing published net asset value per ordinary share.

A further announcement will be made in due course.
