Total Voting Rights, Share Capital and Block Listing Application



Geneva, 14 June 2018: Wizz Air Holdings Plc ("Wizz Air") has submitted a block listing application for the admission of 405,573 ordinary shares relating to shares vested or vesting as part of the company's Long Term Incentive Plan (159,113) and its pre-IPO International Employee Share Option Plan (246,460) to the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission").  Admission is expected to become effective and dealings in the shares are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on 15 June 2018.


In accordance with Rule 5.6.1R of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules (the "DTRs"), Wizz Air Holdings Plc (the "Company" and, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") notifies that as at 13 June 2018:


-       it has two classes of shares in issue, being ordinary shares of £0.0001 each ("Ordinary Shares") and convertible shares of £0.0001 each ("Convertible Shares");


-       the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue is 72,746,171;


-       the total number of Convertible Shares in issue is 29,830,503; and


-       there are no shares held in treasury.

Each Ordinary Share carries one voting right per Ordinary Share.  The Convertible Shares do not carry voting rights, save in very limited circumstances.


The total voting rights figure of 72,746,171 may be used by shareholders (and others with notification obligations) as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the DTRs.


The total figure of 127,010,889 may be used by shareholders for the Company's theoretical fully diluted share capital, as at 13 June 2018, such total figure comprising 72,746,171 issued Ordinary Shares, 29,830,503 Convertible Shares, 24,246,715 new Ordinary Shares which would have been issued if the full principal of outstanding convertible notes, had been fully converted on 13 June 2018 (excluding any Ordinary Shares that would be issued in respect of accrued but unpaid interest on that date) and  187,500 new Ordinary Shares which may be issued upon exercise of vested but unexercised employee share options.
