INTENTION TO CONDUCT AUDIT TENDER
BBGI Global Infrastructure S.A. (LSE ticker: BBGI), the global infrastructure investment company, announces its intention to conduct an audit tender with a view to selecting a firm to audit the Company's consolidated IFRS financial statements starting for the fiscal period beginning 1 January 2022 (the "Tender").
The Tender is initiated in compliance with European Audit Reform as adopted by the EU legislators in 2014 and with Luxembourg law on 23 July 2016 on the audit profession ("Law n°6929") which requires Public Interest Entities to put their statutory audit engagement out to tender at least every 10 years.
The Tender process will be led by the Company's Audit Committee (with active consultation with the Company's Management Board and other relevant parties within BBGI).
The request for proposal for the Tender is expected to be issued during the last quarter of 2020 with the Tender process to be conducted during the first half of 2021. The final decision is expected to be announced no later than the release of the Group's 2021 Interim Results (expected to be published in August 2021).
