Serco Group plc, the international service company, in accordance with its notice to shareholders, will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) this afternoon. The 2014 Full Year Results and the detailed outcome of the Strategy Review were announced on 12 March 2015. On the same day, the Group's Annual Report and Accounts was published and a Rights Issue Prospectus was issued to shareholders. At the subsequent General Meeting held on 30 March 2015, the ordinary resolution to authorise the allotment of shares in connection with the Rights Issue was duly passed. The Rights Issue concluded on 17 April 2015, raising gross proceeds of approximately £555m. On 30 April 2015, Serco completed its debt refinancing, with the terms of the amended financing agreements recognising the strengthening of the Group's balance sheet resulting from the Rights Issue.
The Group is trading in line with the expectations for 2015 that it set out at the time of reporting its 2014 Full Year Results. The next update will be a pre-close statement at the end of June 2015, ahead of the release of the Half Year Results on Tuesday 11 August 2015.
The results of voting on the resolutions to be proposed at today's AGM will be announced to the London Stock Exchange and will appear on our website at www.serco.com/investors/agmshareholderinfo shortly after the conclusion of the AGM.
