Escape Hunt to acquire European competitor

By BFN News | 01:55 PM | Friday 22 January, 2021


Escape Hunt is acquiring European competitor French Master Franchise, for a consideration of approximately £330,000. Both companies have conditionally agreed terms for the acquisition. These funds will come from a £1.4 million fundraise the AIM-listed escape room operator is preparing in connection to the acquisition. The fundraise is based on a placing of over 8 million shares at 1.25p each. £150,000 of this will be used to fund further investment in the French and Belgian business, with the rest being used to continue the roll-out of Escape Hunt's UK sites. Escape Hunt CEO Richard Harpham said: 'Prior to COVID, the French/Belgian territory was a very strong performer for Escape Hunt and we are confident that demand will return to previous levels once the current restrictions are lifted.' At 1:55pm: (LON:ESC) Escape Hunt Plc share price was 0p at 13.5p Story provided by StockMarketWire.com
