Result of General Meeting

On 6 June 2016 Swallowfield announced that it had entered into a conditional agreement to acquire the entire issued share capital of The Brand Architekts Limited ("Brand Architekts") (the "Acquisition") and conditionally raised £8.6 million (before expenses) through the issue of 5,558,985 new Ordinary Shares in an oversubscribed placing arranged by N+1 Singer.


The Company is pleased to announce that at the General Meeting held today all resolutions proposed were duly passed and accordingly the Placing and Acquisition will complete upon admission of the New Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM expected on or around 28 June 2016 ("Admission").


Chris How, Chief Executive of Swallowfield, said: "The acquisition of Brand Architekts is a transformational development for the Group. It significantly enhances our owned brand portfolio, a key strategic pillar for the Group, and adds further expertise to the team. It further strengthens our business model of building two complimentary value streams (core contract manufacturing and owned brands) on one single capability platform. On behalf of the Board, we would like to thank both our existing and new shareholders for their support."
