Scheme of Arrangement: result of second Court hearing

Amigo Holdings PLC (LSE: AMGO), a leading provider of guarantor loans in the UK, provides an update on the Scheme of Arrangement (the 'Scheme') of ALL Scheme Ltd ('SchemeCo') announced on 25 January 2021, following the Court sanctioning hearing which took place on 19 May 2021.

Amigo announces that the High Court has not approved the Scheme despite the overwhelmingly positive creditors' vote. A copy of the Judgment can be found at www.amigoscheme.co.uk. The Board is reviewing all options including an Appeal. A further update will be given in due course.

To ensure equal treatment of customers with redress claims, Amigo announced on 21 December 2020 that it was stopping the ongoing payment of redress claims as set out in the announcement of that date, and that position will continue.

Gary Jennison, Chief Executive Officer of Amigo, commented: "Amigo is incredibly disappointed that the Scheme has not been approved despite the 74,877 customers who voted in support of the Scheme, representing over 95% of those who voted. We are currently reviewing all our options and will provide an update at the earliest opportunity."

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014.  The person responsible for this announcement is Roger Bennett, Company Secretary.
