("600 Group" or "the Group")

Senior Management Role Change

The Board of 600 Group today announces that David Grimes, Divisional Managing Director of the Group's Global Laser Marking Division, has agreed to extend his employment with the company for an additional year in order to assist in the ongoing process of the management restructure of the Division as the Group plans for his eventual retirement.

As part of the extension, Mr. Grimes will take up a new role as Chief Technology Officer effective from April 2019. This is an important step in the Group's planned succession strategy and will support the key development and delivery of its new proprietary technology platform.

Mr Grimes has successfully led the Group's Laser business since the acquisition of Tykma, Inc. in 2015, a business he founded nearly two decades earlier.

David Grimes, Divisional Managing Director, commented:

"After many years at the helm of Tykma and then 600 Group's combined Laser business, I look forward to assisting in the transition to the next generation of leaders. The business is in great shape with a clear strategy to further realise its significant growth potential. I look forward to my new role in ensuring the continued progress of the business."

Paul Dupee, Chairman, commented:

"On behalf of the Board I would like to thank David for his leadership of our Laser business over recent years. Under David's tenure our Laser business has gone from strength to strength. I look forward to working with David in his new role to realise the Laser business' significant market opportunity and deliver on our strategy to grow the Group into a global industrials business with positions in diversified niche markets worldwide."
