AGM Statement

 

Amigo, a leading provider of guarantor loans in the UK, will hold its Annual General Meeting today. At the meeting today the following statement will be made:

 

" Collections have remained robust since the end of the year. While we continue to see increased levels of arrears, predominantly from customers  exiting Covid-19 payment holidays, overall collections have been robust since the end of the year and remain encouraging.  Combined with effective cost management, this has given the Company a current unrestricted cash position of £229m.

"The Company continues to operate within significant financial constraints. New lending is suspended. The current net loan book, after impairment, is approximately £235m. At the time of the full year results we estimated that the total of balance set-off adjustments and associated costs would be approximately £100m. The Company will incur future operating costs to collect out the remaining loan book. The current annual overhead costs are approximately £25m. While securitisation borrowings are now fully repaid, senior secured notes of £234.1m remain outstanding with an attached annual interest cost of £17.9m.

 

"Work to progress a new Scheme of Arrangement ('Scheme') continues, with ongoing engagement with both the Independent Customers' Committee ('ICC') and the Financial Conduct Authority ('FCA'). While progress has been slower than originally anticipated, it is critical that we listen to the voice of our customer, as represented by the ICC. On 28 September 2021, Amigo submitted a revised Scheme proposal, incorporating feedback from the ICC, along with its future business plan to the FCA and the ICC.   

 

"The Board remains committed to pursuing a solution that enables Amigo to satisfy its obligations to all stakeholders in the most equitable way possible and to returning to providing the opportunity for financial inclusion to the many in society who are locked out of finance by the mainstream providers."
