Update on Share Buy Backs


EPE Special Opportunities Limited ("ESO" or the "Company") confirms its continued intention to purchase ordinary shares of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") ("Share Buy Backs"), subject to availability on attractive terms. This confirmation follows the announcement made by the Company on 10 June 2019, indicating the commencement of Share Buy Backs.


Any Share Buy Backs will be in line with the Company's stated policy to pursue Share Buy Backs and will be made in accordance with the terms set out in the notice made at the Company's annual general meeting held on 30 July 2019.


The proposed Share Buy Backs will be funded by the Company's cash reserves. Any Ordinary Shares purchased by the Company will be held by in treasury.
