Update re Corporate Governance Inquiry

On 25 November 2021, DX's Audit and Risk Committee ("ARCo") raised a corporate governance inquiry (the "Inquiry") into an internal investigation (the "Investigation") that had commenced in October 2020.

 

Further to the announcement of 4 February 2022 regarding the resignation of Grant Thornton, which had voiced its concerns regarding the progress of the Inquiry and Investigation at that time, the initial findings of the Inquiry and Investigation have now been reported to the Board. Having considered these findings and discussed them with the Company's Nominated Advisor, the Board has resolved to undertake some further work. 

 

The Board expects this further work and the recently commenced audit of the Company's report and accounts for the financial period ended 3 July 2021 to be completed by 30 September 2022.  Trading in the Company's shares will remain suspended, with further updates to be made in due course.

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("MAR"), and is disclosed in accordance with the company's obligations under Article 17 of MAR.
