Settlement of Project Blue Sky

RBG Holdings plc, the professional services group, is pleased to announce the pre-trial settlement of Project Blue Sky, one of its internally funded litigation cases. Project Blue Sky was a damages-based agreement for a shareholder dispute case. The parties have agreed to a settlement just over a year since the claim was filed, and a year earlier than the scheduled trial at the end of 2020. This has therefore enhanced the Group's Internal Rate of Return (IRR) on the investment.

As well as acting for the claimant, the Group also part-financed the case in line with its strategy. The return on the Company's investment in the case, in terms of cash and time, was 184% with an IRR of 317%. Project Blue Sky is the Company's smallest self-funded litigation case, and the Group has invested GBP2.5million in 11 other cases which are yet to conclude.

The settlement, while not material in terms of the Group's forecast full-year financial results, is, however, the first successful completion of a case that the Group has invested in since its flotation in May 2018. It demonstrates the significant returns that can be achieved through the Group's litigation finance strategy.
