Intu Properties plc: Confirmation of Offer of Scrip Dividend Alternative

Intu Properties plc: Confirmation of Offer of Scrip Dividend Alternative
INTU PROPERTIES PLC (the "Company") 
CONFIRMATION OF OFFER OF SCRIP DIVIDEND ALTERNATIVE TO THE CASH 2013 INTERIM
DIVIDEND 
On 1 August 2013, the Directors announced an interim dividend for 2013 of 5.0
pence per ordinary share payable on 19 November 2013 (the "Dividend"). Subject
to the terms of the scrip dividend scheme (the "Scheme") which was approved by
shareholders at the Company's 2012 AGM, the Directors are pleased to offer a
scrip dividend alternative for the Dividend, and the Dividend will therefore be
paid as follows: 
* If taken in cash, the Dividend will be wholly paid as a Property Income 


    Distribution ("PID") which will be subject to deduction of a 20 per cent UK
    withholding tax unless exemptions apply
      * Shareholders who make an election to receive shares will receive shares
    based on the full 5.0 pence dividend being paid as a non-PID. As a non-PID,
    this will be treated as an ordinary UK company dividend


Shareholders will receive the Dividend in cash unless they elect to receive
shares instead. It is intended that the Scheme be offered for all future
dividends; the Board does however reserve the right to withdraw the Scheme for
any particular dividend at its discretion. A full description of the terms of
the Scheme are contained in the Scrip Dividend Booklet which is available for
viewing or download from the Company's website at www.intugroup.co.uk. Hard
copies can be requested via the website or by contacting the Company (email
feedback@intu.co.uk or telephone +44 (0)20 7960 1236). 
Election forms for the Scrip Dividend will be posted to certificated
shareholders as soon as practicable. Further forms for certificated
