CAPITAL SHOPPING CENTRES GROUP PLC (the "Company") CONFIRMATION OF OFFER OF SCRIP DIVIDEND ALTERNATIVE TO THE CASH 2012 INTERIM DIVIDEND On 26 July 2012, the Directors announced an interim dividend for 2012 of 5.0 pence per ordinary share payable on 20 November 2012 (the "Dividend"). The Dividend will be paid totally as a Property Income Distribution ("PID") and will be subject to a 20% UK withholding tax unless exemptions apply. 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 2012 Interim Dividend (the "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.
