The General Meeting has been convened pursuant to section 656(1) of the Companies Act 2006. In circumstances where the value of the Companys net assets is less than half of its called up share capital (categorised as a Serious Loss of Capital) the Directors are required, pursuant to section 656 of the Companies Act 2006, to convene a general meeting of the Company for the purpose of allowing shareholders to consider whether any, and, if so what, steps should be taken to deal with the situation. The Board would therefore like to ensure that this matter is addressed accordingly.
Mothercare plc (the Company) announces that Richard Rivers and Lee Ginsberg will step down as Non-Executive Directors with effect from the conclusion of the Companys Annual General Meeting due to be held on 19 July 2018.
Richard Rivers would be entering his 11th year and is not standing for re-election. The Company will commence a search for a Senior Independent Non-Executive Director to replace Richard post the completion of the fundraising.
Lee Ginsberg has taken on new roles outside of the Company and feels this could impact his commitment to support Mothercare. Lee will not be standing for re-election. He will be succeeded by Nick Wharton, Non-Executive Director, as Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
Commenting on the changes, Clive Whiley, Chairman of Mothercare, said:
"I would like to thank both Richard and Lee for their contributions to Mothercare over the past decade and wish them both well. I am delighted that Nick Wharton has taken on the role of Audit and Risk Committee Chair.
This notification is made pursuant to Listing Rule 9.6.11.
