The Board of BlackRock Greater Europe Investment Trust plc (the Company) announces that it has decided not to implement a semi-annual tender offer in May 2022.
Over the six months to 28 February 2022, the average premium to net asset value (cum income) (NAV) was 1.8%. The shares are currently trading at a premium to net asset value of 0.3%. The Board has therefore concluded that it is not in the interests of shareholders as a whole to implement a semi-annual tender offer in May 2022.
The Board will continue to monitor the Company’s discount to NAV and will look to buy back shares and/or operate six monthly tender offers if it is deemed to be in the interests of shareholders as a whole.
