Share Repurchase in connection with the proposed Special Dividend and Share Consolidation
 
IHG published a circular (the "Circular") on 14 December 2018 which contained notice of its General Meeting and provided further details of the Company's proposed US$500m Special Dividend and Share Consolidation. In anticipation of the Share Consolidation, and as outlined in the Circular, IHG today announces that it has engaged Goldman Sachs International ("Goldman Sachs") in relation to its programme for the purchase, during the period which commences today and ends no later than 19 December 2018, of 10 ordinary shares of 19 17/21 pence each in the capital of IHG ("Shares") for cancellation (the "Programme"), to ensure the number of the Company's existing shares is divisible by the consolidation ratio proposed for the Share Consolidation.
 
The aggregate purchase price of all Shares acquired under the Programme will be no greater than £500. The purpose of the Programme is to reduce the share capital of IHG.
 
Any acquisitions of Shares under the Programme will be effected in accordance with certain pre-set parameters set out in an agreement between IHG and Goldman Sachs International, and in accordance with IHG's general authority to repurchase Shares granted by its shareholders on 4 May 2018, the EU Market Abuse Regulation (596/2014), the Commission Delegated Regulation (2016/1052) and Chapter 12 of the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules. IHG confirms that it currently has no unpublished price sensitive information.
 
All definitions used in the Circular dated 14 December 2018 have the same meaning when used in this announcement.
