Master Services Agreement with Kingswood LLP

Kingswood Holdings Limited (AIM: KWG), the international, vertically integrated wealth and investment management group, announces that on 24 December 2020 it entered into a Master Service Agreement ("MSA") with Kingswood LLP to provide services in relation to payroll, back-office support, financial due diligence, transition and separation services, corporate finance transactional support and preparing statutory financial statements. The MSA contains a provision which caps the maximum payment due to Kingswood LLP in any calendar year at £250,000 or such other amount as the parties agree. This amount was subsequently increased to £400,000 in relation to the year ending 31 December 2021. In each case, the quantum paid to Kingswood LLP was considered de minimisin the context of the Company.

The Company has today agreed with Kingswood LLP to increase this cap to £625,000 for the year ending 31 December 2022. This increase is made in anticipation of enhanced M&A activity within the Group for which the Company will utilise the support and services offered under the MSA.

The Company amending the MSA with Kingswood LLP is considered to be a Related Party Transaction under the AIM Rules. Jonathan Massing, Non-Executive Director of the Company, is the majority shareholder of Kingswood LLP and Gary Wilder, Group Chief Executive Officer of the Company, is a member of the Kingswood LLP partnership. Jonathan Massing and Gary Wilder also each have a beneficial shareholding in KPI Nominees. KPI Nominees is a significant shareholder in the Company.

The independent directors of the Company, having consulted with finnCap Ltd in its capacity as the Company's nominated adviser for the purposes of the AIM Rules, consider the terms of these transactions to be fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

The independent directors in relation to these matters are all of the directors of the Company except for Jonathan Massing and Gary Wilder, who are not considered independent because of their interests in Kingswood LLP.
