The shareowners of Coca-Cola Enterprises have approved the pending transaction to create Coca-Cola European Partners. CCE shareowner approval represents a key step in the process of completing the transaction and closing is now expected to occur on or about May 28, 2016.

Shares of Coca-Cola European Partners are expected to start trading simultaneously in New York, London, and Amsterdam on Tuesday, May 31, 2016. In Spain, trading is expected to start on Thursday, June 2, 2016.
