Net Asset Value and Disposal

EPE Special Opportunities Limited ("ESO") announces that ESO Investments (PC) LLP ("ESO PC LLP"), a limited liability partnership in which it is the majority limited partner, has disposed of its investment in Process Components Limited ("PCL") to Schenck Process UK Limited.


Following the disposal of PCL, ESO's estimated Net Asset Value per share as at 30 September 2018 is 216.31 pence per share. This estimated Net Asset Value per share incorporates a 11.16 pence per share uplift generated by the disposal valuation of PCL.


The disposal returns £13.6 million in total to ESO PC LLP at the exit date as cash and a total of £18.2 million since the acquisition in March 2005 via income, loan repayments and the disposal proceeds. The total return to ESO PC LLP since March 2005 equates to a 4.5x Money Multiple and 20.7% IRR.


The disposal has a positive impact on ESO and was completed at a 44.1% premium to PCL's prevailing holding value of £9.5 million. ESO intends to use the capital returned for new deals.


The person responsible for releasing this information on behalf of the Company is Hilary Jones of R&H Fund Services (Jersey) Limited.
