LEI: 213800FBBZCQMP73A815

Dividend Declaration

29 April 2021

The Board of GCP Asset Backed, which invests in asset backed loans, is pleased to announce a quarterly dividend in respect of the period from 1 January 2021 to 31 March 2021 of 1.575 pence per ordinary share (the "Q1 Dividend").

The ordinary shares will go ex-dividend on 13 May 2021 and will be paid on 14 June 2021 to holders of ordinary shares recorded on the register as at close of business on 14 May 2021.

Scrip Dividend Suspension

The Board, in its discretion, has determined that the offer of a scrip dividend will remain suspended for the Q1 Dividend. The suspension is as a result of the discount between the likely scrip dividend reference price of the shares and the current net asset value per share of the Company. The Board will keep the payment of future scrip dividends under review.
