Trading Update, Board Change, Notice of Results & Investor Presentation
31 January 2022
STM Group Plc (AIM: STM), the cross border financial services provider, announces a trading update for the 12 months to 31 December 2021, a Board change and notice of its final results for 2021.
Further to the trading update of 19 November 2021, the Board confirms that its trading results for 2021 will be materially in line with previous guidance, subject to any adjustments resulting from the Group audit process. Expectations for 2022 also remain in line with existing guidance.
Robin Ellison, who joined the Plc Board as a Non-Executive Director at the time of STM's acquisition of the London & Colonial Group in 2016, relinquishes his Board position as from today, 31 January 2022, having completed a five year term. A process is underway to appoint a successor to Robin and a further announcement will be made at the appropriate time.
Commenting on Robin's contribution, Alan Kentish, CEO, said:
"Robin has been a valued member of the Plc Board and with his pension legal background has significantly added to the vision and strategy of the Group. His career in the UK pensions industry spans many decades, and his depth of knowledge and contacts means that STM will continue to work with Robin on a consultancy basis going forward. I, along with the remainder of the Plc Board, would like to thank Robin for his valued service to STM."
