RESULTS OF COURT MEETING AND GENERAL MEETING
AND LAPSING OF SCHEME

Revolution announces that, at the Court Meeting and the General Meeting held earlier today, the requisite resolutions were not passed and, therefore, the Scheme has lapsed.

The Scheme Court Hearing to sanction the Scheme, scheduled for 20 October 2017, will not take place.

The Board remains confident regarding the underlying strength of the Revolution business and its ability to operate and grow as a standalone business, not least given the scale and strength of Revolution's new venue pipeline and the returns achieved by new venues opened in the last two years.  The Board considers that its clear and focused strategy, the quality of Revolution's sites and customer proposition, and the talent within the business, leave the business well placed for further growth. Revolution is proud that it has delivered 16 consecutive quarters of like-for-like sales growth.  The Board is pleased that the management team is now able fully to focus on running the business, starting with the successful delivery of the important Christmas trading period.  The Board would like to thank shareholders for their support of the business during this extended offer period and will work tirelessly to deliver its strategy and to maximise shareholder value.
