Senior plc

Response to Lone Star no intention to bid statement

The Board of Senior plc ("Senior" or "the Company") notes the announcement made by LSF XI Investments, LLC, a company advised by Lone Star Global Acquisitions, Ltd ("Lone Star") earlier today that it does not intend to make a firm offer for Senior plc.  As a result of the announcement, Lone Star is bound by the restrictions contained in Rule 2.8 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code").

The Board continues to believe that Senior has a focused and compelling strategy to achieve growth and create value for shareholders over the medium-term and remains confident that Senior is well-positioned to emerge strongly as the recovery continues across its end-markets.

As indicated in our announcement on 22 June 2021, we intend to provide a post-close trading update on 9 July 2021.  Our interim results will be announced on 2 August 2021, at which time we will provide a full market and strategy update.  In addition, we intend to host a capital markets day in October 2021, the theme of which will be our fluid conveyance and thermal management strategy.
