Xpediator PLC RNS Release

Statement re Press Comment


RNS Number : 3069N
Xpediator PLC
16 January 2019
 

16 January 2019

The information communicated within this announcement is deemed to constitute inside information as stipulated under the Market Abuse Regulations (EU) No. 596/2014. Upon the publication of this announcement, this inside information is now considered to be in the public domain.

XPEDIATOR PLC

("Xpediator" or the "Group")

Response to Media Speculation

 

Xpediator, (AIM: XPD), a leading provider of freight management services across the UK and Europe, notes the recent press comment regarding the potential acquisition of Intereuropa d.d., ("Intereuropa") a Slovenian logistics company.

Xpediator confirms that it is in discussions with Intereuropa's controlling shareholders (the "Shareholders") as part of a competitive sales process being conducted by the Shareholders' advisers (in cooperation with the board of Intereuropa). There can be no certainty that these discussions will result in any agreement being reached with the Shareholders or any formal offer being made by Xpediator. It is currently intended that any acquisition of Intereuropa would exclude the majority of its property portfolio and consideration would be funded largely through a combination of Xpediator's  existing resources and debt funding.

Consistent with its stated strategy of making synergistic acquisitions to enhance organic growth, Xpediator has a pipeline of potential acquisition opportunities which at any given time are at various stages of consideration.  

A further announcement will be made, as appropriate, in due course.
