Depa Limited Resolution of Material Legacy Item

Jul 6 ,2017

Depa Limited (“Depa”), the leading global interior solutions group, announces resolution of an outstanding legacy item. The project, initiated in Qatar over the first half of 2012, was executed by Depa’s joint venture company, Lindner Depa Interiors LLC. Resolution of this item significantly improves the Group’s net cash position which will have a materially positive impact on Depa’s earnings in H1 2017.

Depa’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Hamish Tyrwhitt, commented:

“The resolution of this long outstanding item is yet another example of the Group’s continuing progress in executing our clearly defined business strategy and of the Group achieving its plan ahead of management’s original timetable.”

“By continuing to de-risk the balance sheet as we are, Depa is well placed to enter into Phase 3 of our strategy, where we achieve consistent top and bottom line growth.”

“The outlook for the Group remains the most positive it has been for some time.”
