Meggitt PLC - Response to press speculation


The Group notes the recent press speculation regarding potential debt or equity funding options.

Further to our trading update on 2 July, the Group continues to trade in line with our internal expectations.  While there have been initial signs of a recovery in the civil aerospace sector, considerable uncertainty remains in relation to COVID-19.  

Against this backdrop, the Group continues to review a range of trading scenarios and associated actions to mitigate any material adverse change to the industry outlook.

Our current financial position and liquidity remain strong.  At 30 June 2020, we had £1,701m of committed facilities in place providing headroom of £856m.  We also have access to additional liquidity as an eligible issuer under the Bank of England's Covid Corporate Financing Facility.
