Ultimate Finance Group plc


Proposed Cancellation of AIM Listing


Ultimate Finance Group plc (or "the Company") confirms that, conditional on completion of the recommended offer for the entire issued share capital of the Company by Renovo Group plc (the "Offer"),  the Company has applied to AIM for the cancellation of the trading facility on AIM.


The Offer is being implemented by way of a Companies Act Scheme of Arrangement ("the Scheme") which is contained in a circular to shareholders of the Company dated 30 July 213 ("the Scheme Document") and is dependent, inter alia, on the sanction of the Scheme by the Court following the requisite approval of the Scheme at the Court Meeting (as defined in the Scheme Document) and the passing at a general meeting of the Company of the necessary special resolution to implement the Scheme, both of which meetings are to be held on 20 August 2103. The London Stock Exchange has agreed that, conditional on the Scheme being so approved by shareholders, the cancellation of the trading facility will not require the separate approval of shareholders.


Conditional on the sanction of the Scheme by the Court and the satisfaction of the other conditions of the Scheme, it is expected that the trading facility will be suspended with effect from 07.30  on 09 September 2013 and cancelled by 08.00 on 10 September 2013.



This announcement is being made in accordance with the requirements of Rule 41 AIM Rules.
