Company Update

SEC Newgate (AIM: SECG), the international communications, advocacy and research group, is providing an update following the Italian government's implementation of measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

To date there has been no significant impact on the Group's business as a result of COVID-19, and the Company is closely monitoring the situation.

The Company reports that a substantially full service is being delivered across all the Group subsidiaries. Dynamic and remote working solutions are being successfully used on a continuous basis in the Far East and Italy, the two main areas of the world where coronavirus is currently making the biggest impact. Elsewhere, contingency plans are in place.

All teams are supporting their clients, public and private, to tackle the crisis and to communicate the issues related to the current and evolving state of affairs efficiently and effectively, both inside and outside their organisations.

Commenting, Fiorenzo Tagliabue, SEC Newgate S.p.A. Group CEO, said:

"As a professional services consultancy, we are highly experienced in managing complex situations such as this across multiple stakeholders. We have an absolute focus on serving and supporting our clients and looking after the wellbeing of our own team, working with even greater commitment to minimise any impact on our business. We have done it in past crises, and we will cope with this exceptional situation with responsibility and determination."
