Trading Update

The Board of Vordere plc wish to provide a trading update to outline for shareholders the significant progress made towards our strategic objectives as a result of the acquisitions announced on 4 July 2019.

Our business model is to apply private equity techniques to generate medium to long term counter-cyclical gains for shareholders. This approach includes using proven financial engineering techniques to enhance shareholder returns through financial cycles. The Board believes that the financial markets are heading toward a cyclical downturn in the short to medium term and we have positioned the Group for this change. As such, we plan to create value for shareholders by focusing in the near-term on increasing the number and size of our current assets and cash reserves, whilst limiting exposure to debt and management costs. We believe that this approach will position the Group to enhance returns throughout challenging financial markets.

The acquisitions completed in the first five months of the financial year mean that the Company has made great strides in reaching its near-term objective of EUR100m of assets with a medium-term expectation that our collateral will expand past EUR250m. The Board is confident that its investment strategy will continue to increase value to shareholders as the Board continues to explore opportunities to grow, in particular, in higher volatility markets in more volatile economies in order to balance the portfolio and provide greater opportunities for growth. We are in discussions with several vendors to achieve this goal in Europe and the Americas.

Since 31 March 2019, the Company has increased its total assets from GBP24.2m to GBP84.5m as a result of the acquisition of six new properties via the issue of consideration shares, as outlined in the announcement on 4 July 2019. The net asset value per share has increased by 44% since the year ended 31 March 2019, from 11.67p per share to 16.81p per share as at 31 August 2019, based on shares in issue of 199,750,418 at 31 March 2019 increasing to 477,682,372 as at 31 August 2019.

At the end of the five-month period ending 31 August 2019, the Company had GBP4.1m cash, no debt and continues to keep administration costs to a minimum so that maximum funds can be dedicated to the implementation, review of and potential investment in, suitable projects. Since 31 August 2019 the Company has received an additional GBP1.1m of cash from the early repayment of one of its Norwegian loans, as per the announcement on 30 September 2019.

The Directors of Vordere PLC are listed on the Company's website at www.vordere.com.
