Board change

Amigo Holdings PLC ("Amigo" or "the Company"), a provider of mid-cost credit in the UK that is currently in an orderly solvent wind-down, has been notified of the board change detailed below.

On 15 May 2023 Danny Malone resigned from his role as CEO and Director, subject to serving out his 6 month notice period to ensure the continuation of the solvent and orderly wind-down of the business.

Danny Malone, CEO: "I joined Amigo last year as I could see the potential of the new proposition, RewardRate, in a market which is crying out for supply. I would like to thank our teams who have shown remarkable resilience and commitment over what has been a very challenging period and to everyone for the culture we have built in such difficult circumstances. Unfortunately the investment market, particularly into the sector in which Amigo operates, was extremely difficult and we were unable to raise the capital required. As a result the business is in wind down, which will have progressed enough over the next six months for me to hand to others to complete."

 

Jonathan Roe, Chair: "Danny was a tireless leader of the executive team in our search to secure commitments for new financing for Amigo, which unfortunately proved impossible to secure. He was also integral to getting our RewardRate product into the market.  As Amigo is now required to wind down under the terms of its Scheme of Arrangement, Danny's resignation is another sad day for the Group."
