NOTES TO EDITORS

 

ME Group International plc (LSE: MEGP) operates, sells and services a wide
range of instant-service vending equipment, primarily aimed at the consumer
market.

 

The Group operates vending units across 19 countries and its technological
innovation is focused on four principal areas:

 

·    Photo.ME   - Photobooths and integrated biometric identification
solutions

·    Wash.ME   - Unattended laundry services and launderettes

·    Print.ME     - High-quality digital printing kiosks

·    Feed.ME    - Vending equipment for the food service market

 

In addition, the Group operates other vending equipment such as children's
rides, amusement machines, and business service equipment.

 

Whilst the Group both sells and services this equipment, the majority of units
are owned, operated and maintained by the Group. The Group pays the site owner
a commission based on turnover, which varies depending on the country,
location and the type of machine.

 

The Group has built long-term relationships with major site owners and its
equipment is generally sited in prime locations in areas of high footfall such
as supermarkets, shopping malls (indoors and outdoors), transport hubs, and
administration buildings (City Halls, Police etc.). Equipment is maintained
and serviced by an established network of more than 650 field engineers.

 

In August 2022 the Company changed its listed entity name to ME Group
International plc (previously Photo-Me International plc) to better reflect
the Group's diversification focus and business strategy.

 

The Company's shares have been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1962.
