Some Gibraltar regulated entities - update on appointment of Inspectors

16 November 2017

Further to the announcement of 14 November 2017, STM Group Plc (AIM: STM), the cross border financial services provider, announces the following update with respect to the appointment of Inspectors (the "Appointments") for certain of the Company's Gibraltar regulated subsidiaries, (the "Subsidiaries") which is currently subject to a temporary Stay granted by Order of the Gibraltar Supreme Court (the "Court").

The Board of STM has been advised that the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission and Subsidiaries have agreed a Voluntary Stay until the appeal against the Appointments (the "Appeal") is heard by the Court. The Stay is without prejudice to the respective parties' legal arguments. The Court Order for this is in the process of being finalised. This will cancel the extended Stay hearing of the Court which was scheduled for 20 November 2017. The Stay means that the Inspectors will not be commencing any work in relation to the Appointments and consequently the Subsidiaries will not be suffering the potential costs of the Inspectors pending the outcome of the Appeal. This Appeal has now been set for 22 January 2018.

As previously announced, the Subsidiaries, as advised by their lawyers, believe that there are strong grounds for the Appeal.

The Subsidiaries are hoping to establish a collaborative way forward through dialogue with the GFSC.

Further announcements will be made in due course, as appropriate.

The information communicated in this announcement is inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation 596/2014.
