Strategic update - New Advanced Solutions business unit established


Regenersis plc (AIM: "RGS") ("Regenersis" or the "Group"), a strategic outsourcing partner to many of the world's leading consumer technology companies, is pleased to announce the formation of a new business unit within its Advanced Solutions Division and the formation of a related Joint Venture company.


The new business unit, called Renew, brings together the Group's Recommerce, Refurbishment and Digitalcare activities for the first time.  The formation of Renew follows the Group's strategy to identify and deliver innovative, higher margin products and services in the after-market service sector for mobile devices, which offer cost effective solutions and revenue generating opportunities for Regenersis' customers, including insurance companies, network operators and retailers.


Fully refurbished devices are increasingly being bundled with warranty extension services and insurance; Renew will, amongst other things, provide legitimate, quality refurbished devices to the end customer, as well as logistics and consultancy services - a new range of activity for Regenersis.


In the last few weeks, Renew has won several new contracts with significant new activities for Telefonica in Spain; other clients in Poland, as well as the Phonehouse, Telefinance and Solid in Sweden.


Regenersis has appointed a senior industry MD to manage and direct Renew, who will join the Regenersis Executive Board on assumption of his role.


Regenersis Refurbishment Ltd, a joint venture company owned 51% by Regenersis and 49% by Ecoasia Technologies Ltd, is being established to exploit Refurbishment opportunities in Mainland Europe across Regenersis' client base and manage global Refurbishment programs for OEMs.   Ecoasia is a market leading firm in Refurbishment capabilities with facilities in Manila, Hong Kong, China and Mexico.


Matthew Peacock, Executive Chairman of Regenersis, said:   "It is encouraging to see how quickly the Renew activities have grown from what were just plans a year or so ago. Renew is a clear demonstration of our ability to deliver new organic growth opportunities which, we believe, will allow us to maintain an impressive growth record."
