UPDATE TO RELEASE DATE OF THE 2020 FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

 

As disclosed in the announcement of 14 January 2021, following the strategic reorganisation of the Group the Board has been exploring how best to finance the three business units given their different priorities and capital requirements. 

 

In line with this previously indicated position, the Group has been actively progressing the establishment of an export credit agency backed working capital facility (the "Facility") with certain relationship banks (the "Banks"). The purpose of the Facility is to provide additional funding for the IMI rigs project. The Facility is in advanced stages of negotiation and approval by the Banks is expected shortly.

 

As a result, given the importance and materiality of the Facility and the current status of negotiations, a short delay has been requested by the Group's auditors, Deloitte, supported by the Board of Directors, in the finalisation of the audit and publication of financial results for the year ended 31 December 2020, previously scheduled for 18 May 2021.

 

A revised publication date will be confirmed as soon as possible and the Group will provide an update on the progress of the working capital facility discussions at the earliest opportunity.
