GYG Restart of Refit Works in Nobiskrug Shipyard

GYG (AIM: GYG), the market leading superyacht painting, supply and maintenance company, today provides an update regarding clear progress made on the most significant of the Company's contracts related to the Nobiskrug shipyard, which appointed administrators in April 2021. As announced at the time, the Company had three active contracts with the shipyard, with invoices outstanding totalling approximately EUR2.8m (excluding VAT).

GYG is pleased to confirm, in agreement with the new owners of the shipyard, the position relating to the refit project (the largest of the three contracts) is now resolved. New contracts have been agreed and GYG has received a payment of approximately EUR2m relating to historical work. The Company's Pinmar brand professionals will recommence work on the vessel in February, with this large project now scheduled for completion in H1 2022.

Constructive negotiations continue regarding recommencing works on the two New Build projects and the Company will provide an update in due course.

Similar to previous years, the Company will release a Full Year Trading update in February.

"I am pleased to have reached a successful conclusion with the numerous parties involved on this complex refit project. The agreement reflects the perseverance of the client and GYG management to work together and deliver a clear solution from a complicated situation. Resolving this has been a key objective for the management team and demonstrates the importance of our position in the market as leaders in our sector."
