Man Strategic Holdings plc ("the Company") announces that its parent company,
Man Group plc, has just released the following announcement which may be
regarded as relevant to the price of the Company's debt securities:

Man Group ("Man") has entered into a series of transactions with Hutchinson
Investors LLC, managed by the Baupost Group, to sell the residual exposure to
the Lehman estates ("Lehman claims") that it acquired in July 2011 from
certain GLG managed funds.

The total consideration for the transactions is $456m, payable in cash by the
buyer. Man may receive up to a further $5m if overall recoveries by the buyer
exceed certain thresholds in the future. The Lehman claims were valued at

consideration, while retaining certain obligations to the Funds. The proceeds
will increase Man's regulatory capital surplus and further enhance its net
cash position.
