On the 3rd March 2015 Vertua Ltd announced the acquisition of Horizon Print Management Pty Ltd (HPM), a deal which transformed much of the then Vertua Limited business in both nature and scale of activities.

As foreshadowed in the AGM notice, we have been in discussion various parties as to the potential disposal of the business to unrelated third parties. There was no intention to dispose of the business, however because of approach with respect of HPM, the Board conducted a review the strategic direction for the business.

Accordingly, we are pleased to announce the exchange of contracts for the 100% sale of HPM to Bridgestone Investments Pty Ltd (Bridgestone). The broad terms of the deal were dealt with in the AGM notice, and the sale is consistent with this disclosure.

We expect settlement to occur within 30 days of the AGM.

The Board would like to thank Mr. Stuart Page for his years of expertise and service to the HPM business and we wish him all the best in the future with the ongoing management of the company under its new ownership. Mr. Page was instrumental in the growth of the business and ultimately securing this sale.
