Lifting of Share Suspension, Strategic Overview, Net Asset Value and Net Cash Position


Lifting of Share Suspension

Following the publication of the Prospectus on 31 March 2022, the Company is pleased to announce that the suspension of the Company's ordinary shares will be lifted and trading will recommence at 8.00 a.m. today.

Strategic Overview

The Company was formed to seek and identify situations where a merger of management expertise, improving operating performance, freeing up cashflow for investment and implementation of focused investment and M&A strategy can unlock growth in their core markets and often into new territories and adjacent sectors.

The Company's objective is to generate attractive long term returns for shareholders and to enhance value by supporting sustainable growth, acquisitions and performance improvements within the acquired companies.

Over the last 25 years companies across all sectors have increasingly adopted new digital technologies to optimise business processes and operations. Implementing these new technologies has become central to driving cost efficiencies and gaining a competitive advantage in a digital world, where sectors and businesses with the highest level of digitalisation display the largest productivity growth.

Despite the opportunities presented by digitalisation, pre-Covid-19 adoption of new technologies by businesses and consumers was in part restricted by the reticence of companies to invest in digital strategies and adopt new systems and technologies.

The global restrictions caused by Covid-19 have helped to break down these barriers and forced businesses to become more agile which has considerably accelerated digitalisation. Despite businesses cutting costs because of the Covid-19 pandemic, spending on digital transformation has increased as organisations rapidly adapt their business models. A McKinsey study[1] found that the pandemic had sped up the adoption of digital technologies by several years, and that most companies will need to build new digital businesses to stay economically viable.

We therefore believe there is significant opportunity to invest in companies that are positioned to take advantage of the structural change arising from an unprecedented acceleration of digitalisation brought about by the current macroeconomic environment, affecting the way people live, work and consume, and the way businesses operate, engage and sell to customers.

Net Asset Value and Net Cash Position

AdvancedAdvT announces that as at 31 March 2022, the unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per ordinary share was 94 pence[2].

The above NAV calculation is based on the Company's issued share capital of 133,200,000 ordinary shares of no par value each.

The Company announces that as at 31 March 2022, it had an unaudited net cash balance of £105.1m.

The LEI of the Company is 254900WYO35S1T334A28.
