EVO Group secures new financing arrangements to 2024

The EVO Group of Companies is delighted to announce that it has successfully secured new, simplified £90m
financing facilities to support its future plans.
After a competitive process including offers from its existing lenders, EVO Group has agreed new syndicated
facilities with Breal Zeta and Leumi ABL for the next 3 years to replace its existing facilities that were due to
expire in April 2021.

Steve Haworth, CEO of EVO Group comments:
“As we end a positive 2020 for our Group, we are very pleased to announce the successful completion of the
refinancing of our facilities. The fact that we have completed this process whilst still in the middle of the
pandemic and just before the next Brexit deadline is testament to the hard work and commitment of those
involved and reaffirms the confidence we and others have in our business model and the positive outlook for the
multi-channel sales, marketing and operational platform we have built.”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our existing lenders who have supported us over many
years and we look forward to building equally good long term relationships with our new partners”.

Andy Ross, Partner at Endless added:
“We are very pleased with what the whole team at EVO has achieved during 2020 and the confident in the
strength of EVO’s offering in a transformed market. The business has delivered strong results in a challenging
economic environment.”

“Ending the year with the completion of this refinancing puts the business in a fantastic position going into
2021 and beyond to further develop and grow.”

Ben Milner, Business Development Director at Breal added:
“It has been a pleasure working with EVO to structure this facility which will support them in continuing to
achieve their long-term goals. Their performance this year, during a difficult trading period for many, is
testament to their strong leadership and business model. We look forward to working closely with the EVO team
in the years ahead”
