EPE Special Opportunities Limited

Vesting of the Share Matching Scheme and PDMR Shareholdings

Vesting of the Share Matching Scheme

EPE Special Opportunities Limited (the "Company") announces that, on 8 April 2022 in the offices of the Company's administrator, certain awards made under the Company's share matching scheme (the "Scheme") vested to certain members of the Board of Directors and EPIC Investment Partners LLP ("EPIC"), the Company's investment advisor (the "Participants") (the "Vesting").

As a result of the Vesting, the Participants' interests in jointly held vesting ordinary shares ("Matching Shares") have increased such that the Participants now hold the entire beneficial interest in the Matching Shares (as opposed to just a portion of the beneficial interest) and the Participants now hold the full legal title to those ordinary shares.

The interests in the Matching Shares were transferred to Participants from the Company's employee benefit trust. The number of ordinary shares in issue, not held by the Company in treasury, is unchanged by the Vesting and remains 31,519,979 ordinary shares (which should be used as the denominator for calculations of interests in the Company's voting rights).

PDMR Shareholding

Certain members of EPIC and certain Directors of the Company (being PDMRs of the Company) have received the entire beneficial interest and legal title to the Matching Shares as part of the Vesting described above. The details of the Matching Shares received by PDMRs are provided below:
