Update on ASX IPO, Tender Offer, Consolidation and Cancellation

 

Trading update

 

MYSALE Group plc ("MYSALE" or the "Company"), the online off-price retail platform, today provides an update on its proposed Listing on the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") and Offer, Tender Offer to Eligible Shareholders, Consolidation of Existing Shares and Cancellation of trading to AIM.

Update on Proposed Transaction and Cancellation

In light of the current equity market conditions and the performance of a number of recent IPOs in Australia, MYSALE has decided to withdraw the Offer and proposed 2021 listing on ASX. 

The Board maintains the long-term objective of aligning its listing with its operations in Australia and intends to reassess the timing of an ASX listing at the appropriate time during calendar 2022.

Following withdrawal of the Offer, the Board has decided to withdraw the Tender Offer, Consolidation and Cancellation. As such, the Extraordinary General Meeting to approve the Proposed Transaction and Cancellation will not proceed.

However, the Company's Annual General Meeting will proceed as planned at 10.00 a.m. (GMT) on Monday 29 November 2021.

Current Trading and Outlook

Following the recent changes to the business and management team, the Company continues to trade well, underpinned by strong growth from its marketplace platform. Gross Merchandise Value ("GMV") and gross profit for the first four months of the current financial year (ending 30 June 2022), were ahead of prior year by 43% and 9%, respectively, which is in-line with Board expectations. With the new CEO and strengthened leadership team, the Board remains confident that the Company is well positioned to build on this positive momentum.

 

MYSALE is debt free and cash positive and remains well capitalised and able to support its current operations, such that no new funding is required for the Company to deliver its forecasts.

Defined terms used in this Announcement have the meanings given to them in the Circular, dated 11 November 2021, unless the context provides otherwise.

This Announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the UK version of EU Regulation 596/2014 which forms part of UK law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.
