On 27 January 2022, shareholders of Henderson European Focus Trust plc (the ‘Company’) approved a sub-division of the ordinary shares at the Company’s Annual General Meeting. The sub-division became effective on Monday, 7 February 2022 (the ‘Effective Date’). This means that each ordinary share of 50 pence in the capital of the Company (‘Previous Ordinary Shares’) has now been sub-divided into ten new ordinary shares of 5 pence each (‘New Ordinary Shares’). Although each ordinary shareholder now holds ten times as many New Ordinary Shares than before, each shareholder's proportionate interest in the ordinary share capital of the Company remains unchanged. The New Ordinary Shares have the same rights to participate in dividends or income of the Company and the same rights on liquidation of the Company as holders of Previous Ordinary Shares. Each New Ordinary Share carries the right to one vote on a poll.
