It will significantly strengthen the skills, insight and robustness of the Board as we continue to focus on growing Studio’s digital value proposition.”

The Company confirms that there is no further information about Michael Torpey requiring disclosure under paragraph 9.6.13 (1) to (6) of the Listing Rules.
