Response to Press Speculation

 

The Restaurant Group plc ("TRG") notes recent press comment.

As is widely understood our industry is facing exceptional challenges in what is an unprecedented operating environment.  The casual dining sector was already facing significant challenges prior to the onset of Covid-19, with overcapacity and significant cost pressures.

In order to meet both the immediate challenges and to build a post-lockdown business with a sustainable future, we are in discussions with our landlords regarding potential restructuring options for our Leisure estateOur Wagamama, Airport Concessions and Pub operations are not affected by these discussions.

A further announcement will be made as and when appropriate.
