Strategic review update and end of Offer Period

On 17 November 2015, Rightster announced a number of changes to the board, supported by the major shareholders, including the appointment of a new Chairman, CEO and COO.  In light of their evolving plans for the business, the board has made the decision to conclude the strategic review process and focus on seeking further investment in the Company.

Accordingly, the Company is no longer in an offer period under the Takeover Code.

 

Ashley MacKenzie, CEO, commented:

“I am pleased to report that, since joining as CEO, I’ve been greatly encouraged by the Company’s excellent people, strong client base and opportunities available to leverage the current technical platform. The market opportunity in this sector remains huge and, as we develop a leaner and more efficient commercial direction to the business, we expect it to become increasingly attractive to strategic investors.”
