At the 2016 AGM of CVC Credit Partners European Opportunities Limited (the "Company"), Shareholders authorised the Company to sell and repurchase its shares to another party for the purposes of facilitating the conversion of the Treasury Shares from one currency denomination to another ("Treasury Share Conversion").
Accordingly the Company announces the sale of 41,564,426 ordinary Euro shares out of Treasury (the "Sale") to Conversion SPV Limited to complete on 22 June 2018.
Following completion of the Sale, the Company's issued share capital (excluding treasury shares) consists of:
162,922,004 ordinary Euro shares of no par value
300,937,217 ordinary Sterling shares of no par value
Each ordinary Euro share carries the right to 1 vote and each ordinary Sterling share carries the right to 1.17 votes.
The total number of voting rights of the ordinary Euro shares of no par value is 162,922,004 and of the ordinary Sterling shares of no par value is 352,096,543. The total number of voting rights in the Company will be 515,018,547. The Company holds the following ordinary shares in treasury:

Ad hoc Share Conversion
To facilitate the Treasury Share Conversion, the Company will implement an ad hoc Share Conversion today, based on the Company's month-end net asset value figure for 31 May 2018.

It is expected that such application will become effective and that dealings in the new Sterling Shares will commence on 28 June 2018.
Repurchase of Shares
