Flowgroup eyes £20m back-up plan

Emergency cash call if buyer cannot be found for energy business
Thursday 18 May 2017 Author: Steven Frazer

Embattled boiler technology developer Flowgroup (FLOW:AIM) may be be forced into a hugely discounted emergency fund raise. The £20m cash call would be needed if the company cannot find a buyer for its independent household energy supply business, Flow Energy. It has 270,000 consumer customers.

Talks with several parties have seen a preferred buyer emerge although a deal looks far from certain. New funding, if required, would be priced at 1.5p per share, a 53% discount to the prevailing share price before news broke.
