Headline:  Dividend Declaration and Scrip Dividend Alternative

22 January 2021

GCP Infra, the only UK listed fund focused primarily on investments in UK infrastructure debt is pleased to announce a dividend of 1.75 pence per ordinary share, for the period from 1 October 2020 to 31 December 2020. The dividend will be paid on 9 March 2021 to holders of ordinary shares recorded on the register as at the close of business on 5 February 2021.

The Company will also be offering a scrip dividend alternative under which shareholders may elect to receive new ordinary shares in lieu of the cash dividend. The price of a new ordinary share to be issued under the scrip dividend alternative will be calculated by taking the average of the Company's closing middle market quotations of an ordinary share for the ex-dividend date of 4 February 2021 and the four subsequent dealing days.

Full details of the scrip dividend alternative can be found in the Scrip Dividend Circular in respect of the financial year ended 30 September 2021 ("Scrip Dividend Circular 2021"), which has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and is available for inspection at 12 Castle Street, St Helier, JE2 3RT and on the Company's website at https://www.graviscapital.com/funds/gcp-infra/literature.

The reference price for the scrip shares will be calculated and published on or around 11 February 2021.

Shareholders will receive the dividend in cash unless they have completed either an evergreen standing election ("Scrip Dividend Mandate") (for holders of ordinary shares in certificated form only) or a CREST Dividend Election Input Message (for holders of ordinary shares in CREST only).

Holders of ordinary shares in certificated form who complete a Scrip Dividend Mandate will continue to receive scrip shares in lieu of their entire cash dividend entitlement for future dividends unless they revoke their Scrip Dividend Mandate, details of which are set out in the Scrip Dividend Circular 2021. For shareholders who hold their shares through CREST, a CREST Dividend Election Input Message should be issued on each occasion where a scrip dividend alternative is offered.
