Update on appeal of Adams v Carey case

11 April 2022

STM Group Plc (AIM: STM), the cross border financial services provider, announces that it has been informed by the Supreme Court that its application for leave to appeal the judgment of the Court of Appeal in the long-standing Adams v Carey case has been declined.

The original case was heard in March 2018 and relates to an investment made in 2012, prior to STM's acquisition of Carey UK Pensions LLP in February 2019.  A condition of the acquisition was the indemnity on any claims in the Adams v Carey case, with the benefit of significant existing PI cover held by the vendors. The decision therefore does not directly impact STM's exposure in this case, but it will have implications for the Financial Services industry more broadly.
