Update to Results Announcement


Digitalbox plc (AIM: DBOX), the mobile-first digital media business, which owns Entertainment Daily and The Daily Mash, provides the following update regarding the announcement of its results for the year ended 31 December 2019. 


As previously announced, Digitalbox intended to publish its final results for the year ended 31 December 2019 on Thursday 26 March 2020.


However, being mindful of the recent requests from the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Reporting Council for companies to delay the reporting of their financial results and following consultation with its auditors, the Board has decided to defer the announcement of its final results. Therefore, it will no longer publish them on 26 March 2020. 


The Board can confirm it still expects the final results to be in line with the guidance provided in the trading update of 16 January 2020.


The Board will update the market with a date for the release of its audited financial statements as soon as practicable.
