Statement re media speculation

 

Thomas Cook Group notes media reports regarding a potential offer for its tour operator business from Fosun International Limited ("Fosun"), the group's largest shareholder. Thomas Cook confirms that it is in discussions with Fosun following receipt of a preliminary approach.

 

There can be no certainty that this approach will result in a formal offer. However, the Board will consider any potential offer alongside the other strategic options that it has, with the aim of maximising value for all its stakeholders.

 

The Company will make a further announcement as appropriate.
