Findel plc ("Findel" or "the Group")

Smaller Related Party Transaction

Findel, the UK Home Shopping and Education business, today announces that it has entered into an agreement with Tosca North West Limited (the "Landlord") to surrender the lease over one of its vacant leasehold premises (the "Agreement").

This property, formerly a warehouse for Findel Education but vacant since 2011, has a lease with the Landlord which has three years unexpired. An opportunity has arisen to surrender the lease saving the Company £390,000 per annum in future rental costs.

The lease is recorded on the Balance Sheet as an onerous provision of £984,000. The premium to be paid to the Landlord for the surrender of the lease is £946,524 resulting in a net profit to the Group of £37,476. However, the theoretical saving to the Group measured against the total potential costs associated with the remainder of this lease, including dilapidations, could be significantly higher.

The Landlord is a privately owned company under the control of the ultimate owner of Toscafund Asset Management LLP, a substantial shareholder of the Group. As such the Landlord is a related party of the Group and this agreement is a smaller related party transaction falling within Listing Rule 11.1.10R.
