Findel PLC ("Findel" or the "Company")

Result of Annual General Meeting

The Board of Findel announces that the Resolutions proposed at the Annual General Meeting held on 25 July 2019 were duly passed on a poll and without amendment by the required majority.

Further details of the Resolutions were set out in the notice of meeting to shareholders of Findel issued on 24 June 2019.

The Board is disappointed to note that our largest shareholder, Sports Direct International PLC (SDI), voted their shareholding of 31,850,000 shares (36.85% of the Company's issued share capital) against the re-appointment of Mr Caldwell, our CFO. The resolution was nevertheless passed with a vote of 58.06% voting in favour of the resolution and with only 2,059 shares voting against in addition to SDI.

Representatives from SDI made contact with the Company in advance of voting and it is our understanding that they have concerns regarding the Company's accounting policies, and in particular the treatment of SDI as a related party in the Company's 2019 Statutory Accounts and the Company's inventory and depreciation policies. The Audit Committee reviewed these areas as part of the annual audit process and fully agree with the accounting and reporting positions taken in each case, as do the entire Board. The Company's auditors, KPMG LLP, signed an unqualified opinion on 4 June 2019. The Board continues to have full confidence in Mr Caldwell, who will continue as our CFO.

The Board also announces that the Company's name will change upon registration at Companies House and trading in the Company's shares under the new name will commence shortly. The Company's London Stock Exchange Tradable Instrument Display Mnemonic ("TIDM") will change to STU.L. The Company's ISIN number will remain unchanged. A further announcement will be made on completion of the required name change processes.

The final votes for each resolution were as follows:
