First Day of Dealing Announcement

The Directors of Walls & Futures REIT plc ("Walls & Futures"), the residential property investment company, are pleased to announce that its application to the ISDX Growth Market for Admission of its Ordinary Shares has been successful.

It is expected that trading for the Company's 3,290,225 Ordinary Shares of GBP0.05 each will become effective and that dealings will commence at 8.00 am on 29th November 2016.


Walls & Futures was incorporated to acquire the assets of the Walls & Futures London Growth Fund by way of a restructuring and to raise additional equity finance to acquire, refurbish or develop residential properties in the UK. The Company's strategy is to invest in cities and towns across the UK. There will be an emphasis on acquiring assets that can be developed or redeveloped to create value and enhance yields. The initial focus will be on the provision of residential housing for the private rented and supported housing sectors, providing a blend of capital growth and higher yielding assets.

Walls & Futures has recently closed an Offer for Subscription which raised just over GBP1 million at an issue price of GBP1 per Ordinary Share.

Joe McTaggart, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"We are delighted to be joining ISDX and by the investor enthusiasm and support for the Company during our recent fundraise. I would like to welcome our new shareholders and look forward to updating them, and our long standing London Growth Fund investors, as the Company moves forward and executes its growth plans."
