Lifting of Suspension


MRS is pleased to announce that restoration of trading in the Ordinary Shares of €0.01 each in the Company ("Shares") will take effect from 08:00 today, 5 May 2017.

The Company's Shares were suspended from trading on AIM at the Company's request on 27 October 2016 pending clarification of the Company's financial position.

During the period of suspension, the accounts for the year to 30 June 2016 and the unaudited Interim Results for the 6 months ended 31 December 2016 have been published.


It was announced on 29 November 2016 that certain of the placing funds raised in August 2016 were not applied to the working capital needs of MRS Services Group (SubZero). There was no suggestion made that the funds had been misappropriated. However, the Board wishes to clarify that other than the payment of A$0.5 million as part of the Bachmann transaction (as previously notified), the majority of these funds were applied to the creditors of subsidiaries that are no longer in operation.


Since the suspension, the Board has been strengthened significantly, with the appointment of a new Chairman and two independent Non-Executive Directors.

The Company's balance sheet and liquidity will also be significantly improved following completion of the Placing and Additional Placing announced on 10 April 2017 and 19 April 2017 respectively, which will take effect on resumption of trading.

Application for admission

Further to the announcements of the following share issues, totalling 15,058,840 Shares, application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for these Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Dealings are expected to start on 9 May 2017.

16 December 2016                           3,610,226 Shares as consideration

19 December 2016                           397,353 Shares in lieu of fees

16 February 2017                              11,051,261 Shares as consideration

Grant of warrants

Northland Capital Partners Limited has been granted Warrants to subscribe for 1,000,000 new Shares at 5 pence per Share for a period of five years, in part satisfaction of its fee arrangements.

John Zorbas, Chairman of MRS said:

"I am very pleased to announce the resumption of trading in the Company's Shares on AIM, following the difficulties faced by the Company over the past 6 months.

I would like to thank our customers, employees, lenders and shareholders and advisors for their patience and support during this period."
