Empresaria Group plc ("Empresaria" or the "Company")

Disposal of business

Empresaria, the AIM quoted staffing specialist, announces the disposal of the whole of the business and trading assets carried on by Bar 2 Limited ("Bar 2") to Procap Services Limited.  In reviewing our portfolio of companies, which is primarily a staffing group focused on international emerging staffing markets, it was determined that Bar 2 no longer fitted that strategy. Following this transaction, the Company no longer operates any UK based business providing umbrella payroll services.

The consideration is an up-front cash receipt of £100,000 with a further £660,000 cash receivable in the future, contingent on performance. 

In the year ended 31 December 2012, Bar 2 generated revenue of £1.6 million and profit before tax of £0.2 million. Net assets at 31 December 2012 were £0.1 million.
