("Pendragon" or the "Company")

Posting of Circular and Notice of General Meeting

Further to the announcement by Pendragon on 18 September 2023 (the "Transaction Announcement"), Pendragon today announces that the UK Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") has approved a class 1 circular (the "Circular") in relation to the Transaction.

The Circular will be sent or made available to Pendragon's shareholders shortly (other than those who have elected for notification by electronic communication). Completion of the Transaction is conditional on, among other things, the approval of Pendragon's shareholders. Accordingly, a general meeting of Pendragon's shareholders will be held at 10.00 a.m. on 6 October 2023 at the offices of CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP at Cannon Place, 78 Cannon Street, London EC4N 6AF, at which an ordinary resolution will be proposed for Pendragon's shareholders to approve the Transaction (the "General Meeting"). A notice convening the General Meeting is included in the Circular.

The directors of the Company strongly recommend that Pendragon's shareholders vote by proxy as soon as possible and to appoint the Chair of the General Meeting as their proxy. Further information as to how to vote by proxy can be found in the notice of General Meeting.

All references to times in this announcement are to London times. The Circular will shortly be submitted to the FCA's National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection on its website at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism. The Circular will also be available for viewing on Pendragon's website from the date of the Circular up to and including the date of the General Meeting and for the duration of the General Meeting.

Defined terms used on this announcement have the same meaning where used in the Transaction Announcement.
