Further to the Company’s announcement on 18 November 2019, Koovs plc (AIM: KOOV) is disappointed to announce that, as a result of the failure by its largest shareholder, Future Lifestyle Fashions Limited (part of Future Group, India’s largest retail group), to fulfil a contractual commitment to invest a further £6.5 million into the Company, and the failure by the Company to secure alternative sources of funding, the Board of Koovs plc has resolved to apply to place Koovs plc into administration.
The Board expects that the business and assets of Koovs will be purchased from the administrator by a company connected to the Company’s largest secured creditor, Waheed Alli, ensuring the continuation of the operating business.
A further announcement will be made in due course regarding the appointment of the administrator.
