Response to Press Speculation

 

The Board of Cranswick plc ("Cranswick", the "Company" or the "Group") notes the recent press speculation with regard to a potential acquisition.

 

In line with the Company's stated long-term growth strategy to expand its product offering through further diversification, Cranswick regularly considers acquisition opportunities.

 

The Board confirms that it is currently engaged in a process regarding the potential acquisition of Inspired Pet Nutrition Limited, a leading UK pet food business. If successful, the Group's current intention is to part-finance the acquisition via an equity placing of less than 10% of issued share capital to investors.

 

There can be no certainty at this time that the acquisition will progress. The Company will make a further announcement if and when appropriate.
