RECORD PLC
BUSINESS UPDATE

 

Record plc ("Record" or "the Company") announces today that it has subscribed £40,000 for 40 per cent. of the ordinary share capital of Trade Record Ltd ("Trade Record"), and entered into a shareholders' agreement with Trade Record's other shareholders, comprising Leslie Hill and Bob Noyen, both of whom are directors of Record, and one other.

 

Trade Record is a newly-formed company established to offer pay-to-enter competitions in which subscribers trade virtual money across asset classes, and the best realised trade performance determines a cash prize winner.  Record is optimistic that its investment in Trade Record will allow Record to benefit from its associated branding including in recruitment, as well as offering the opportunity to create shareholder value in a business that offers significant diversification from Record's established currency management business.

 

The subscription of £40,000 will be met from Record's cash resources, and the gross assets of Trade Record at subscription are £80,000.  As a newly-formed company Trade Record has generated no profits.

 

Record will announce its fourth quarter trading update on 17th April 2019.

Notes to Editors

 

Record plc

 

Record is a specialist currency manager and provider of currency hedging services for institutional clients. Founded in 1983, Record has established a market leading position as a currency manager. Specifically, the Group has a leading position in managing Currency Hedging and Currency for Return for institutional clients.

 

The Group has four principal reporting lines:

 

-

Dynamic Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate the impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies when these movements are expected to result in an economic loss to the client, but not to do so when they are expected to result in an economic gain;

 

-

Passive Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate fully or partially the economic impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies;

 

-

Currency for Return, in which Record enters into currency contracts for clients with the objective of generating positive returns; and

 

-

Multi-Product, where the client mandate includes combined hedging and return-seeking objectives.
