Board changes and results of the AGM

Escher Group Holdings plc (AIM: ESCH, "the Group"), a world leading provider of outsourced points of service software to the postal industry, announces the following Board changes.

Following the AGM today, Bernard Somers, the Non-Executive Chairman, stood down from the Board after over nine years in the role.

Nick Winks and Stephen McLeod will be joining the Board, shortly, as independent Non-Executive Directors, becoming Non-Executive Chairman and Senior Independent Director respectively.

The Board continues to make progress towards the appointment of a new Finance Director.

Liam Church, CEO Escher Group, said:

"These new appointments will bring experience and expertise as we address new strategic opportunities outside of our traditional core postal business.

"Nick has been responsible for developing and creating value in a number of corporate situations over the last 20 years or so. He has previously been a Non-Executive Director of several quoted companies, including Claimar Care plc and Private & Commercial Finance Group plc.

"Stephen has worked for a number of strategy consultants and has held senior posts with major multinationals. He was Chief Executive of Universe Group plc, supplying point of sale and customer loyalty products to the petrol service station sector.

"On behalf of everyone at Escher, I wish to thank Bernard for his considerable guidance across the business since the MBO in 2007."

Bernard Somers said:

"It has been an honour and privilege to serve as Non-Executive Chairman for nine years and to assist in bringing Escher to the public markets. I wish Escher and all of its shareholders, employees and Directors great success in the future."

All resolutions put to the shareholders at the AGM were duly passed.
