The purchase price is GBP70 million (EUR84 million) which will be paid in full on the completion of the sale. The purchase price shall be subject to an adjustment upon finalisation of the completion accounts. The sale is subject to certain conditions including shareholder and regulatory consent. The EGM, at which an ordinary resolution approving the sale shall be voted upon by the shareholders, shall be held in advance of the AGM on 27th June 2012.

Profit for the International Division for 2011 was GBP8.02 million (Group GBP22.6). Gross assets as of 31 December 2011 were GBP64 million (Group GBP184 million). Declan Kenny, CEO of the International Division will remain with the International Division following the sale and he will resign from the Board of IFG.

CEO, Mark Bourke says: "IFG is delighted to conclude the agreement for sale with AnaCap.

This sale represents an excellent price for this valuable business. The proceeds will provide options for the Group including debt repayment, shareholder return and strategic investment in the SIPP and advisory businesses".
