PRIME INVESTMENTS INTERNATIONAL GROUP LIMITED
("Prime" or the "Company")
Statement regarding PLUS Markets Group plc
The Board of Prime notes the announcement of Monday, 14May 2012 by PLUS Markets Group Plc ("PLUS") http://www.plus-sx.com/newsItem.html?newsId=1611740 of the closure of its formal sale process and its intention to wind down its operations in an orderly fashion over a period of up to six months. The Directors have been aware since February 2012, when the news of a formal sale process entered the public domain, of questions surrounding PLUS's future as a stock exchange and they have for some time been consulting their professional advisers on this matter. They have been evaluating options for raising the profile of the Company and improving liquidity in the shares, including seeking admission of the shares to trading on another stock exchange.
The Directors expect in the near future to be in a position to make a further announcement concerning the conclusions drawn from this consultation process. They wish in the meantime to re-assure all shareholders that they are not only aware of the situation but that they will ensure the interests of shareholders are protected to the fullest extent appropriate under the circumstances recently announced by PLUS.
