("Staffline", the "Company" or the "Group")

Result of Placing and Subscription

Staffline (AIM: STAF), the recruitment and training group, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Placing, which was oversubscribed, and Subscription announced earlier today by the Company.

A total of 87,249,500 new ordinary shares of 10 pence each (the "Placing Shares") have been placed at a price of 50 pence per share (the "Issue Price") to certain existing shareholders and new institutional investors.

Concurrently with the Placing, certain Directors and employees of the Group have agreed to subscribe for 750,500 new ordinary shares of 10 pence each (the "Subscription Shares") at the Issue Price.

Together, the Placing Shares and the Subscription Shares comprise 88,000,000 new ordinary shares of 10 pence each, raising gross proceeds of £44 million for the Company. The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 29 per cent. to the closing share price of 70 pence on 20 May 2021. The Placing Shares and the Subscription Shares being issued together represent approximately 128 per cent. of the existing issued ordinary share capital of the Company prior to the Placing and Subscription.

Liberum Capital Limited ("Liberum") acted as Nominated Adviser, Broker and Sole Bookrunner in connection with the Placing. Canaccord Genuity acted as financial adviser to the Company.

The Placing Shares are not subject to clawback and are not part of the Open Offer. Neither the Placing nor the Open Offer is underwritten.

Albert Ellis, Chief Executive Officer of Staffline, commented:

"We are delighted to have received such a strong endorsement from both new and existing investors for this fundraising, which, coupled with our working capital refinancing will transform our balance sheet.  The level of support for the transaction is testament to the turnaround, strategic progress and deep transformation delivered over the last year. This includes exiting non-core loss-making businesses and contracts as well as reducing the Group's headcount and infrastructure costs, whilst maintaining the highest levels of fulfilment for our blue-chip customers. The divisional leadership team have implemented substantial operational improvements and we are beginning to realise the benefits of this, in both the quality of the business we are winning and the talent we are attracting."

 

"We continue to see positive momentum in 2021 across the Group and look forward to further capitalising on our market leading positions with the strong platform that this refinancing provides us."

 

Related Party Transactions

Gresham House Asset Management and Henry Spain Investment Services are considered to be related parties of the Company (the "Substantial Shareholders") for the purposes of the AIM Rules by virtue of their status as substantial shareholders of the Company.

The Substantial Shareholders have agreed to subscribe for 9,000,000 and 6,000,000 Placing Shares, respectively, as part of the Placing.

The Directors, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, Liberum, consider that the terms of the participations in the Placing by the Substantial Shareholders are fair and reasonable insofar as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.

Notice of General Meeting

The Circular containing further details of the Fundraise and convening the General Meeting and containing the Application Form for the Open Offer and the Proxy Form for the General Meeting is expected to be despatched to Shareholders on or around 24 May 2021 and will thereafter be available on the Company's website at https://www.stafflinegroupplc.co.uk/investor-relations/.

The Placing, Subscription and Open Offer are subject to, inter alia, the passing of the Resolutions, for which Shareholder approval will be sought at the General Meeting. It is very important that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions as in the event that the Transaction cannot proceed the Group would not have sufficient liquidity under its Existing Facilities to meet its forecast funding requirements. In such circumstances the Board would seek to refinance its Existing Facilities but, based on current information available, the Board believes that it is unlikely to be able to do so without an equity raise or some other form of corporate action which it cannot be certain it would achieve.

It is proposed that a General Meeting will be held at 11.00 a.m. on 9 June 2021. In light of the ongoing Covid-19 concerns, the General Meeting will be held as a closed meeting and accordingly, save for the minimum number of Director shareholders so as to form a quorum (2), no Shareholders will be able to physically attend the General Meeting.

Admission

Application will be made to London Stock Exchange plc for the Placing Shares, Subscription Shares and the Open Offer Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Placing Shares, Subscription Shares and the Open Offer Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 10 June 2021 (being the business day following the General Meeting), subject to the Resolutions being passed at the General Meeting.

Other than where defined, capitalised terms used in this announcement have the meanings given to them in the 'Proposed Placing and Subscription to raise £44 million, Proposed Open Offer to raise £4.4 million and Proposed Debt Refinancing' announcement released by the Company on 21 May 2021 (RNS number: 3759Z).

UK Product Governance Requirements

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Rules"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any 'manufacturer' (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Rules) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Placing Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of (a) retail clients, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA, (b) investors who meet the criteria of professional clients as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA and (c) eligible counterparties as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook ("COBS"); and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by Directive 2014/65/EU (the "UK Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The UK Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, Liberum will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties. For the avoidance of doubt, the UK Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of COBS; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Placing Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Placing Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.

EU Product Governance Requirements

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any 'manufacturer' (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail clients and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "EU Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the EU Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The EU Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the EU Target Market Assessment, Liberum will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

For the avoidance of doubt, the EU Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
