AGM date / Update on payment of 2019 final dividend

Tribal, a leading provider of software and services to the international education management market, announces that the Board has revised the date for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will now take place on 24 June 2020.  Further details will be circulated in due course and posted on the Company's website.

In order to help us to serve the needs of the business through the extraordinary challenges presented by Coronavirus (COVID-19), management have implemented significant cash and cost-saving measures which materially impact all staff.  As a result, the Board no longer considers it appropriate to pay the final 2019 dividend in relation to ordinary shares, which was expected to be paid in July.  Accordingly, the resolution in relation to the declaration of this dividend will not be put forward at the AGM. Through retaining this distribution, £2.5m of cash will remain in the business and further strengthen the balance sheet.

The Group remains well-capitalised, with a strong balance sheet and £10m of committed loan facilities in place.
