Update on Court Action and Financing

Further to previous announcements (September 25 and August 23, 2019), Gate Ventures PLC, a global media and entertainment operating company, announces that following the dismissal in the High Court of application brought against it by its loan holder, it is yet to receive its legal costs awarded against the loan holder. 

Instead, the Company has received notice that the loan holder has chosen to appeal against the decision of the High Court as well as made a further application to put the Company into administration. 

Geoff Morrow, CEO of Gate Ventures, said: “This loan holder is not only delaying making payments of our legal costs but revisiting the legal action which already has been dismissed. Our opinion is that this new legal action is also without merit and is designed to detract from the non-payments. We will of course defend our position robustly again and expect the appeal to be rejected.”

The Company continues to have meaningful dialogue with potential investors and as matters develop, the Board will keep the market informed appropriately.
