As a result, IWG has no financial debt which matures before November 2025. As previously announced, pro-forma net financial debt at 31 March 2023 was £683m.

 

The initial acquisition bridge of £330m in March 2023 has been reduced by £205m to £125m through cashflow generation and is now extinguished entirely.

 

Apart from the sizing and tenor described above, no material terms, such as pricing, of the RCF have changed.

 

Outlook

The Company remains cautiously optimistic for the remainder of 2023, and despite the strengthening of Sterling, management has not changed its financial expectations for FY 2023.

 

IWG and Worka continue to trade well. IWG remains committed to reducing its ownership stake in Worka in the medium term.

 

The Company is well-positioned to continue to take advantage of future growth, its capital-light strategy and year to date has made improvements on all core KPIs since December 2022.

 

IWG is looking forward to making its H1 2023 results announcement on 8 August 2023.
