("Inspiration Healthcare" or the "Company")

Change of Corporate Office and Outsourcing of Warming Products Manufacturing


Inspiration Healthcare Group Plc (AIM: IHC) today announces the conclusion of a strategic review undertaken by the Board in relation to its operations following  the reverse takeover of Inditherm plc in June 2015.


The combination of the Inspiration Healthcare and Inditherm business continues to be a success. The Board has concluded that it is appropriate to outsource the manufacturing of the Inditherm product range to third party manufacturers which will result in the simplification of the companies' operations including the closure of the Company's factory in Wath upon Dearne on the 31 January 2017.  A number of roles currently based at Wath upon Dearne will be retained within the Group but re located. Inspiration will retain the relevant know-how and IP under its control.


The company is also announcing the opening of a new corporate office and R&D centre in Crawley, West Sussex which is due to open in January 2017. Staff located at the current office in Albourne, West Sussex will transfer to the new office which will close. These new offices are being designed with facilities for the company to showcase its entire product range to its distributors from all over the world and the proximity to Gatwick Airport and London make it an ideal location.


No changes are being made to the office and distribution centre at Earl Shilton but space has been made available to accommodate a number of roles from Wath upon Dearne.


Inspiration will take an exceptional provision in its accounts for the year to 31 January 2017 of £0.5m to cover these restructuring costs and expects a payback within 3 years. We believe that disruption in the current year will be limited.


Neil Campbell, Chief Executive Officer, said today: "By re-structuring our operations, we are streamlining the organisation allowing us to improve our service and accelerate growth."
