Strategic Review Update and Change in Board Appointment

 

In accordance with the announcement made on 27 January 2020, Amigo launched a strategic review and formal sale process in accordance with the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers.  As part of the formal sale process, parties with a potential interest in making an offer were requested to contact the Company's financial advisers by no later than 5 p.m. on 17 February 2020.

 

Amigo has received indications of interest from several parties.  Interested parties have entered into non-disclosure agreements with the Company and discussions are ongoing.

 

There can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms on which any offer will be made. The Board of Amigo reserves the right to alter or terminate the process at any time and in such cases will make an announcement as appropriate. The Board of Amigo also reserves the right to reject any approach or terminate discussions with any interested party at any time. A copy of this announcement is also available at www.amigoplc.com/investors.

 

Given the ongoing formal sale process and further to the announcement by Amigo on 9 December 2019, Richmond Group Ltd ("RGL") has notified the Company that it does not intend to nominate an additional director to Amigo's Board. As a result, Amigo announces the withdrawal of the planned appointment of Kelly Black, currently Head of Measurement & Improvement at RGL, as a non-independent, non-executive director of Amigo. 

 

Amigo will announce its third quarter results for the period ending 31 December 2019 on Thursday 27 February 2020.
