Conviviality Plc

("Conviviality", the "Company" or the "Group")


Update on Fundraising


On 21 March 2018, the Company provided an update to the market on the actions the Board were undertaking to resolve the Company's funding requirements. A key element to this was an equity placing to raise gross proceeds of £125.0 million (the "Placing"), which the Directors believe is the minimum amount required to adequately recapitalise the business.

Despite a significant number of meetings with potential investors resulting in good levels of demand, and constructive discussions with a number of key customers and suppliers regarding the provision of support, there was ultimately insufficient demand to raise the full £125.0 million.

The Board wish to thank its customers, suppliers and employees for their continued support during this difficult period for the Company.

The Company is in discussions with its lending banks and advisors regarding other possible options and is in receipt of a number of inbound enquiries regarding a potential sale of all or parts the business. A further update will be made as appropriate.

The Board believe that shareholders in the Company will receive little-to-nil value.


Temporary Suspension of Trading on AIM

The shares of Conviviality Plc remain suspended pending further notice.
