AGM Statement

At the Annual General Meeting of Nature Group PLC (AIM:NGR) to be held later today, Berend van Straten, Chairman of the Company, will make the following statement:


"As set out in our annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 December 2016, the Company has been working hard to improve the efficiency of its business and to meet the demands of the challenging market in which it operates. The recent delay to a significant Oil & Gas contract, as announced on 15 June 2017, and the absence of new contracts in this division, is further evidence of the difficulties that the Company will continue to face as it endeavours to improve the performance of its existing operations and to widen its product offerings.


As outlined in the final results announcement of 31 May 2017, the Board is closely monitoring the cash position of each of its entities. The Company continues to pursue opportunities but, in the absence of additional material contracts in the short term, the cash position of the Group will continue to deteriorate and it is expected that external financing may be required. Therefore, as well as immediately implementing further reduction in operational cost as well as the Group overhead, the Board is also exploring opportunities to strengthen its balance sheet and the financial position of the Company."
