Mitie Group plc: Competition and Markets Authority ("CMA") Investigation

Mitie Group plc ("Mitie") notes the publication today of a notice by the CMA on its webpage that the CMA has launched an investigation into the participation by Mitie, Mitie Care and Custody Limited and PAE Incorporated in the on-going procurement processes run by the UK Government (Home Office) for the contracts to supply certain services at Heathrow and Derwentside Immigration Removal Centres in the UK. Mitie withdrew from the Derwentside IRC tender process, without submitting a bid, due to the Home Office's 'lotting' conditions, which would have prevented a single bidder from winning both contracts.  Mitie confirms that it remains engaged in the Heathrow IRC tender process, through Mitie Care and Custody Limited.

Mitie strongly condemns anti-competitive practices and is co-operating fully with the CMA and the investigation.  Mitie is confident that it has no case to answer and will be fully exonerated.

Mitie will not be issuing any further announcements in relation to the CMA's investigation, until its conclusion.

This announcement contains inside information. The person responsible for arranging the release of this announcement on behalf of the Company is Peter Dickinson, Chief of Staff and General Counsel.
