                   BLACKROCK ABSOLUTE RETURN STRATEGIES LTD                    
                                                                               
                                ("the Company")                                

In conformity with the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("the Rules"),
the Company would like to notify the market of the following:

The Company's issued share capital consists of the following:

-     1,752,235 Euro denominated shares of no par value with 1.3 voting rights 
      per share (excluding 164,178 Euro denominated shares held in treasury)   
                                                                               
-     2,308,596 US Dollar denominated shares of no par value with 1 voting     
      right per share (excluding 165,505 US Dollar denominated shares held in  
      treasury)                                                                
                                                                               
-     9,919,990 Sterling denominated shares of no par value with 1.5 voting    
      rights per share (excluding 1,146,795 treasury shares)                   
                                                                               
The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 19,466,487
(excluding treasury shares).

The above figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the
calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their
interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Rules.
