DETAILS OF THE APPLICANT'S STRATEGY FOLLOWING ADMISSION INCLUDING, IN THE CASE OF AN INVESTING COMPANY, DETAILS OF ITS INVESTING STRATEGY:

The Company's strategy is to focus on driving growth through a combination of market share gains, specific cross-selling, cost savings, and complementary acquisitions. To implement this strategy, the Company has repositioned itself to become a dedicated supplier of premium building products, systems and solutions to the construction industry, and it is seeking to expand its opportunities internationally. The Board believes that admission to AIM will provide an environment more suited to pursue this strategy, which can assist the Company in developing its business through organic growth and through more efficient transaction activity to bring additional products into the Company's portfolio. The Company's administrative and regulatory requirements will be simplified following Admission, which the Board believes will enable the Company to execute strategic transactions more efficiently.

 

In particular, the Board believes that transactions for companies admitted to AIM can be executed more rapidly with lower transactional costs when compared to the regulatory requirements of companies with shares listed on the premium segment of the Official List, enabling more efficient implementation of the Company's strategy. The Board believes that this increased flexibility has the potential to be beneficial to the Company and its Shareholders.

Save as disclosed in the Company's interim results issued on 31 January 2019 in relation to trading during the first half of the current financial year to 30 June 2019, and in the trading update released on 14 June 2019, there has been no significant change in the financial or trading position of Alumasc since 30 June 2018, being the end of the last financial period for which audited financial statements have been published.

 

A STATEMENT THAT THE DIRECTORS OF THE APPLICANT HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT THE WORKING CAPITAL AVAILABLE TO IT OR ITS GROUP WILL BE INSUFFICIENT FOR AT LEAST TWELVE MONTHS FROM THE DATE OF ITS ADMISSION:

The Directors of Alumasc have no reason to believe that the working capital available to the Company or its Group will be insufficient for at least 12 months from the date of its admission.
