The European Equity Fund, Inc. Announces Commencement Of Tender Offer

The European Equity Fund, Inc. (NYSE: EEA) (the “Fund”) announced the commencement of a self tender offer on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Fund’s Offer to Repurchase and the related Letter of Transmittal, which are being mailed to stockholders commencing today.

The Fund is offering to purchase up to 5% of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock at a price equal to 98% of the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) per share as determined by the Fund on the next business day after the date on which the offer expires. The Fund normally calculates its NAV per share at 11:30 a.m. New York time on each day during which the New York Stock Exchange is open for trading. The tender offer will terminate at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 8, 2011, unless extended. If more than 5% of the Fund’s outstanding shares are tendered in the offer and the Fund purchases shares in accordance with the terms of the offer, it will purchase shares from tendering shareholders on a pro rata basis.

The offer is being made in accordance with the Discount Management Program (the “Program”) approved by the Fund’s Board of Directors in July 2010. The Program provides for up to four, consecutive, semi-annual tender offers, each of which will be conducted by the Fund if its shares trade at an average discount to NAV of more than 10% during the applicable twelve-week measurement period, as they did in the initial measurement period, which commenced on September 1, 2010.

The tender offer referred to in this announcement will be made only by the Offer to Repurchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. Shareholders should read these documents carefully when they become available to investors free of charge at the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission ( Neither the Offer to Repurchase will be made to, nor will tenders pursuant to the Offer to Repurchase be accepted from or on behalf of, holders of shares in any jurisdiction in which making or accepting the Offer to Repurchase would violate that jurisdiction’s laws.

For more information on the tender offer, please contact the Fund’s information agent, The Altman Group, Inc. at 1-800-884-5101.
