("RGF" or "the Company")

Response to Stock Exchange AIM Disciplinary Notice


Real Good Food plc announces that the London Stock Exchange has determined a public censure of the Company and a fine of £450,000, discounted to £300,000 for early settlement.  The public censure relates to breaches of the AIM Rules for Companies ("AIM Rules") 10, 13, 17, 19, 21 and 31 which occurred in the period to July 2017.  The Company will pay the fine on 5 June 2019 from its existing financial resources.


The Company regrets these breaches and fully understands and accepts the importance of sound corporate governance and complying with the AIM Rules.  It has cooperated fully with the London Stock Exchange's enquiry and, since the relevant events that led to the censure, the former Chairman and two other directors have left the Company. 


Announcing its intention in September 2017, the Board has since undertaken significant remedial action, including enhancing the Company's procedures, resources and controls, adopting new corporate governance and implementing new financial processes and procedures. This has included the appointment of a number of new board members.


The Exchange Notice is available at:




Hugh Cawley, Chief Executive said:

"We are pleased to draw a line under these unfortunate incidents in the Company's history, for which we have accepted responsibility. We now have in place fit-for-purpose corporate governance and are committed to complying with our obligations under the AIM Rules."
