Operational Update and Independent Reviews
Finablr PLC ("Finablr" or "the Company"), the global platform for payments and foreign exchange, today provides an update to the market as follows:
Finablr is currently taking urgent steps to assess accurately its current liquidity and cashflow position, which has been adversely impacted by a number of factors:
These factors place significant constraints on the Company's access to the daily liquidity the Company needs to manage its business effectively and its ability to negotiate longer term financing. Due to the fast-moving nature of the events and circumstances referred to above, the Company is urgently seeking to complete its assessment of its liquidity and cashflow position and negotiate the steps that are necessary to address its short- and longer-term financing needs.
The Board intends to appoint an independent financial advisor as soon as possible to advise the Company with respect to these matters.
Following further discussions with the Company's executive management, promoter shareholders, independent auditors, and in light of meetings of the Audit Committee, the Board has been reassured that the Company has no undisclosed related-party transactions or unrecorded on or off-balance-sheet financing arrangements. Nevertheless, to provide further assurance to the Board and the market that this is the case, the Board will shortly commission an independent investigation into the Company's financial arrangements.
The Board is focused on providing transparency to the market on its financial position as soon as possible.
