Statement re: Restaurant Openings

Comptoir Group Plc (AIM: COM), the owner and/or operator of Lebanese and Eastern Mediterranean restaurants, can confirm it plans to start re-opening some of its restaurants from 4th July 2020.

 

Following the government announcement on Tuesday 23rd June, Comptoir will reopen its venues in phases and in line with recommended safety guidelines. At this stage, the Group has not completed its review as to which restaurants it may decide never to re-open.

 

As reported at the full year results of the Company, the Group went into the COVID-19 pandemic with 30 restaurants, including six franchised sites. The Directors are in discussions with all its restaurant landlords about future lease obligations. The Directors expect the outcome of these discussions and the support it receives from landlords to influence how many restaurants the Company operates going forward. The Company will provide further updates as appropriate.
