Teathers Financial

Requisition of GM and update on £1m investment

RNS Number : 1967Z
Teathers Financial PLC
25 May 2016
 

Teathers Financial Plc

("Teathers" or the "Company")

Requisition of General Meeting and update on possible new £1 million equity investment

The Company announces that it has received a letter from a number of its shareholders requisitioning a general meeting of the Company's shareholders (the "Requisition") to consider a resolution to remove all of the members of the current board of directors and additional resolutions to appoint three new directors (the "Proposals").

The directors strongly believe that the Proposals are not in the best interests of the Company.  The directors are of the view that if the Proposals are passed, shareholders may not have the opportunity to support the potential £1 million equity investment in the Company which has been identified by the directors and who are in the process of finalising its terms, as the directors do not believe that the investment would proceed if the current directors are removed.

The board of directors currently intends, in accordance with section 304 of the Companies Act 2006, to call such a general meeting within 21 days of the receipt of the Requisition and to provide for such a meeting to be held on a date not more than 28 days after the date of the notice of such meeting.

Shareholders are advised to take no further action at this time. Further announcements will be made in due course.
