TRADING UPDATE

De La Rue plc (LSE: DLAR) ("De La Rue", or "the Company") today announces a trading update for the six months ended 25 September 2021.

Trading in both our Currency and Authentication divisions for the first half has been positive, with our Turnaround Plan and cost reduction activities continuing to strengthen the Company's performance versus the similar period in financial years 2019/20 and 2020/21. The outlook for the financial year 2021/22 continues to be in line with the Board's expectations.

Net debt at the half year was lower than expected, and less than at the end of the financial year 2020/21. This was as a result of both the phasing of capital expenditure and strong cash collections. The outlook for net debt for the full year is in line with the Board's expectations.

De La Rue expects to announce its results for the six months ended 25 September 2021 on 24 November 2021.

De La Rue plc's LEI code is 213800DH741LZWIJXP78.
