Update on China discussions

Encouraging start to new financial year

Investor evening in Cardiff



Wey Education Plc (AIM: WEY) the educational services group announces an update in relation to its proposed joint venture in China. The board had hoped to conclude all matters to do with its proposed joint venture by the end of September. Wey wishes to ensure that the arrangements in place for corporate governance and financial reporting for the proposed JV in China are at a high standard, but the necessary documentation is taking longer to complete than originally anticipated.


The delay is not expected to have any material effect on revenues or profits for the current year given the internal budgets for the anticipated build-up of the operations this year.


A further announcement will be made when matters are concluded.
