Revolution Bars Group plc (LSE: RBG)

("Revolution" or the "Group")

Statement re press speculation

Further to the continuing challenging trading environment and exacerbated by the further COVID-19 related restrictions announced by the Government earlier this week, the Board of Revolution confirms that it has  been working with advisers to assess various strategic options for the Group.  The Board is currently evaluating the potential impact of the latest developments on the Group's business before deciding what the next steps should be.  One of the potential options being explored is a reduction in the size of the Group's estate by the implementation of a company voluntary arrangement ("CVA").

 

No decisions have yet been made and there is much further work to complete before the Board decides on any appropriate course of action.  Revolution has a strong balance sheet following the £15m equity fundraising and the extension of its banking facilities announced in June but the Board believes that the long term nature and potential impact of the latest operating restrictions means that it must consider all necessary options to ensure that its business remains viable.
