Block Listing Application


The Board of Edinburgh Worldwide Investment Trust plc (the "Company") announces that the Company has made an application to the UK Listing Authority for a block listing of 16,252,710 ordinary shares of 1p each ("Shares") to be admitted to the Official List and to the London Stock Exchange for the Shares to be admitted to trading on the premium segment of the Main Market.

The Company has an existing shareholder authority to issue up to 10 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital on a non-pre-emptive basis which was obtained at the AGM in January 2019. The Board has determined that this authority may be utilised to satisfy market demand by issuing new Shares at a small premium to NAV. This policy is intended to ensure that the level of premium at which the Shares trade does not reach excessive levels.

The block listing is expected to become effective at 8 a.m. on 14 May 2019. Any issue of new Shares will be notified by the Company through a RIS announcement and the Company's website.
