Statement re media speculation

 

Thomas Cook Group notes the media speculation regarding a potential sale of its Northern Europe business. Thomas Cook Group confirms that it has received a highly preliminary and unsolicited indicative offer from Triton Partners for its Northern Europe business, comprising its tour operator and airline in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. 

 

The group is currently evaluating this offer alongside the ongoing strategic review of its Group Airline, announced in February 2019. The group has received multiple bids, including for the whole, and parts, of the airline business and the Board of Thomas Cook Group will consider these approaches with the aim of maximising value for all shareholders.

 

There can be no certainty that a transaction will be concluded with Triton Partners. Thomas Cook Group will make a further announcement as appropriate.
