Simplification of the corporate structure of RELX Group becomes effective

RELX Group announces the completion of the simplification of its corporate structure by which its previous dual parent company structure has been simplified to a single parent company, RELX PLC. Dealings in new RELX PLC shares commence today on the London Stock Exchange, Euronext Amsterdam and the New York Stock Exchange.

Following the admission of 930,780,110 new RELX PLC shares, RELX PLC's capital today consists of 2,055,549,527 ordinary shares of 14 51/116 pence each. RELX PLC holds 79,735,620 ordinary shares in Treasury, representing 3.9% of the total. The voting rights attaching to shares held in Treasury are not exercisable.

Therefore, the total number of shares with exercisable voting rights in RELX PLC is 1,975,813,907. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest, or a change to their interest, in RELX PLC under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
