Dignity plc is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Dignity Finance plc has today issued £45.5 million Class A Fixed Rate Notes due 2023 (of which £42.5m of principal is outstanding) and £32.5 million Class B Fixed Rate Notes due 2031. Both classes of notes were issued at a premium to their nominal value. Total proceeds after fees amount to approximately £86m.

Under the terms of the existing Notes the transfer of funds from the Dignity (2002) Ltd securitised sub-group cannot be made until August 2006. A circular containing full details of the proposals, including a detailed timetable, will be sent to shareholders in due course
