About RDI

RDI is a FTSE 250 UK Real Estate Investment Trust (UK-REIT) committed to becoming the UK's leading
income focused REIT. The Company's income-led business model and strategic priorities are designed to offer
shareholders superior, sustainable and growing income returns, with a target growth in underlying earnings
per share of 3%-5% across the medium term.

Income sustainability is underpinned by a diversified portfolio and tenant base, with no overreliance on any
one sector or tenant, together with an efficient capital structure. The secure and growing income stream is
25.9% indexed and has a WAULT of 6.8 years to first break (8.2 years to expiry). This is complemented by
an average debt maturity of 7.0 years of which over 90% of interest costs are either fixed or capped. The
Company is focused on all aspects impacting shareholder distributions and reports one of the lowest cost ratios
in the industry whilst maintaining a low cost of debt.

The Company owns properties independently valued at £1.6bn in the United Kingdom and Germany, Europe's
two largest, liquid and transparent property markets. RDI invests in assets with strong property fundamentals
spread across UK offices (including London serviced offices), UK logistics, UK shopping centres, UK retail
parks, UK hotels and German retail. RDI is well placed to take advantage of the increasing occupier
requirement for real estate owners to become high quality service providers, given its scalable operational
platforms and nearly a third of the portfolio invested in hotels and London serviced offices.

RDI holds a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock
Exchange and is included within the FTSE 250, EPRA, GPR, JSE All Property and JSE Tradeable Property
indices.
