Update on Reduction of Capital

Westminster, the specialist security and services group operating worldwide via an extensive international network of agents and offices in over 50 countries (LSE:WSG), is pleased to provide an update on its proposed reduction of capital.

Following the resolution passed at the Company's Annual General Meeting held on 24 June 2021 to approve, subject to the confirmation of the Court, a reduction of the Company's share capital, the Company has applied to the Court to approve the reduction of capital. As announced previously, the reduction of capital is being carried out in order to create distributable reserves and to eliminate the accumulated losses on the Company's profit and loss account.

The initial directions hearing in relation to the reduction of capital took place on 15 October 2021, with the final hearing to approve the reduction of capital scheduled for 2 November 2021. Subject to the approval of the Court, the reduction of capital will become effective upon the registration of the Court Order with the Registrar of Companies, which is expected to take place on or around 3 November 2021.
