Annual Report and Accounts and Notice of AGM

Technical change to Preliminary Statement

Empresaria, the international specialist staffing group, is today posting its Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2016 and Notice of Annual General Meeting ("AGM") and Form of Proxy to its shareholders. The AGM will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday 3 May 2017 at the Company's head office at Old Church House, Sandy Lane, Crawley Down, Crawley, West Sussex RH10 4HS.

Copies of the Annual Report and Accounts, Notice of AGM and Form of Proxy will be available to download from the Governance section of the Company's website (empresaria.com).

We draw your attention to a change made to the disclosures presented in the Consolidated Cashflow Statement within the Preliminary Statement announced on 1 March 2017, as detailed below.

Following a review of the Group's accounting policy, the presentation of the movement in invoice financing in the Cashflow Statement has been amended with a restatement of the prior year presentation, to provide shareholders with a clearer understanding of the operating cash flows of the Group. Under the revised accounting treatment this is now presented as part of 'Cash flow from financing activities' rather than 'Cash flow from operating activities'. The impact of the restatement is a disclosure change only and is summarised below.

In the Cashflow Statement:

Year to 31 December 2016
