Utilitywise plc

("Utilitywise", the "Company" or the "Group")

 

Notice of Intention to Appoint Administrators

As previously announced on 28 January 2019, the Board has been undertaking a review of all of the Group's strategic options in order to deliver maximum value for its stakeholders (the "Strategic Review"). The Strategic Review included a potential formal sale process of the Group (the "Formal Sale Process"), all types of corporate transactions, including the sale of certain parts or the whole of the Group, continuing discussions with its shareholders and its bank in relation to a potential equity fundraising and bank refinancing, alongside all other potential strategic options. 

Unfortunately, discussions with respect to the sale of the Group and in relation to an equity fundraising and bank refinancing have not been successful. As a consequence of the above, the Formal Sale Process, so far as it relates to a possible sale of the share capital of the Company, has been terminated. 

Furthermore, since the announcement of the Strategic Review, the cashflows of the business have deteriorated and, therefore, regrettably the business does not have sufficient funding to meet its liabilities as they fall due. 

Consequently the Board has taken the decision that it will take the necessary steps to appoint Andrew Johnson and Chad Griffin of FTI Consulting LLP as administrators of Utilitywise plc. 

The information contained within this announcement is deemed to constitute inside information as stipulated under the Market Abuse Regulations (EU) No. 596/2014. Upon the publication of this announcement this inside information is now considered to be in the public domain.
