Completion of sale of RMS

 

DMGT announces the completion of the sale of RMS, its Insurance Risk business, for approximately £1,425m in cash.  This follows the announcement on 5 August 2021 of the agreement to sell RMS to Moody's Corporation, a global integrated risk assessment firm.

Following the listing of Cazoo Group Ltd announced on 27 August 2021, the completion of the sale of RMS satisfies another pre-condition¹ of the possible offer by Rothermere Continuation Limited for DMGT (the 'Possible Offer'), as set out in the announcement on 12 July 2021 of a possible major reorganisation².  DMGT continues its discussions with the trustees of DMGT's three pension schemes in relation to their funding arrangements.  The pension pre-condition is the remaining non-waivable pre-condition of the Possible Offer.
