Globo Plc (‘Globo’ or ‘the Group’)
Publication of additional information relating to
working capital and the disposal of Globo Technologies
Over the past week, Globo has participated in three Private Investor presentation events during which it received several questions relating to working capital and the mechanics and impact of the disposal in December 2012 of 51 per cent of its Greek subsidiary, Globo Technologies S.A. (“GT”).
The presentations followed a successful placing, supported by International and UK institutional investors, to raise £24 million of equity to accelerate the Group’s expansion plans.
Globo’s published annual accounts have been audited thoroughly and contain all the disclosures required by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Nevertheless, the Board believes that providing further insights into working capital movements and the mechanics and impact of the disposal of GT will enable investors to gain a fuller understanding of the Group accounts.
The Board of Globo attaches the highest importance to transparency in its communications with the financial community and, in order to ensure that followers of the Group have a fuller understanding, has decided to publish on its website, as soon as possible, further analysis on the items mentioned above.
The information is expected to be posted on Thursday, 31 October 2013, if not earlier, when its provision will be notified.
