DE LA RUE PLC

2020 AGM STATEMENT

 

At De La Rue plc's ("De La Rue" or "the Group") Annual General Meeting to be held today, Kevin Loosemore, Chairman of De La Rue, will make the following statement.

Trading and outlook

The Board's expectations for 2020/21 remain unchanged from the full year results announcement issued on 17 June 2020.

The £100m equity capital raising, which completed on 7 July 2020, will strengthen the Group's balance sheet, enabling De La Rue to deliver the Turnaround Plan and create value for its employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders.

In Currency, De La Rue continues to experience strong demand and has been awarded contracts representing approximately 100% of its available full-year banknote printing capacity for Financial Year 2020/21, an increase on the 80% of capacity announced at its trading update of 1 June 2020.
