“Our Full Potential Review has identified that our existing businesses are capable of significant improvement in profit performance. We are at an advanced stage in our negotiations with our major shareholders and lenders to agree a comprehensive refinancing of the Group's balance sheet. This would provide a solid platform to enable the operational improvements identified in our review to be implemented swiftly, whilst also reducing the Group's net indebtedness."
