Disposal of Growth Company Investor ("GCI")


Bonhill Group plc (AIM: BONH), a leading B2B media business specialising in three key areas: Business Information, Events and Data & Insight, announces that it has agreed the sale of the GCI brand, website and subscriber base to David Thornton, GCI's Editor, for an undisclosed sum.


GCI, which has published its monthly investment recommendation newsletter for private investors since 1996, was originally part of Vitesse Media, the predecessor company to Bonhill. GCI is also the publishing brand behind the Quoted Company Awards, which were founded in 2004.


Bonhill Group is focused on the global B2B arena within financial services while GCI, with its B2C focus, has been a strategic outlier. In light of the current climate, the Board believes that it makes strategic sense to dispose of GCI, which has led to the sale of the title. The Group will provide transitional support to David until the end of the year to ensure a smooth handover of the subscriber base, newsletter and website.


Simon Stilwell, CEO of Bonhill, commented:


"David is an experienced fund manager and excellent stock picker. I wish him and the brand well in this new chapter and I would like to thank the subscriber base for their support over the last few years."


David Thornton, Editor of GCI, said: "I would like to thank Simon and the team at Bonhill Group for their help and support over the five years of my Editorship and in facilitating the sale of GCI to me. I am very excited about taking GCI forward and continuing to provide our loyal subscribers with a top-quality service."
