Invesco Select Trust plc

Result of General Meeting

The Board of Invesco Select Trust plc (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the ordinary resolutions relating to the issue of New Shares in connection with the proposed combination of Invesco Income Growth Trust plc ("IIGT") with the assets of the Company’s UK Equity Portfolio (the "Scheme") and the amendment of the investment objective and the investment policy of the UK Equity Portfolio to more closely reflect the investment objective and policy of IIGT were duly passed by shareholders at today's General Meeting. Additionally, the special resolution seeking authority for the Company to buy back up to 14.99% of the New Shares issued at Admission was also duly passed by shareholders.

The Scheme remains conditional, amongst other things, upon:

a) the passing of the resolution to be proposed at the Second General Meeting of IIGT;

b) the approval for the Admission of the New Shares to the Official List with a Premium Listing; and

c) the IIGT Directors resolving to proceed with the Scheme.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement will have the same meaning as set out in the Company's Circular dated 30 March 2021 unless the context otherwise requires.
