Worthington Group plc ("the Company" or "Worthington")

8th January 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Update in relation to possible merger

 

Pursuant to rule 2.6 (c) of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), the Company has requested a 28 day extension to the period of time whereby Nuna Minerals A/S ("Nuna") must, under Rule 2.6 (a) of the Code, either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company, or announce that it does not intend to make an offer. The Takeover Panel has consented to this extension. Therefore the deadline is now 5pm on 5th February 2016. 

 

The Company understands that progress is continuing to be made in relation to the proposed refinancing of Nuna by Greenland Mining Management Ltd following the approval of the re-financing proposals by the shareholders of Nuna on 25th November 2015.

There can be no certainty that these discussions will lead to an offer being made for the Company, nor as to the terms on which any offer may be made.
