WILLEMSTAD, Curacao, July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Retail Holdings N.V. (Symbol: RHDGF) -- Retail Holdings N.V. ("Retail Holdings", together with its subsidiaries, the "Company"), released today results for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The results and the complete Summary Semi-Annual Report are available at the Corporate/Investor/Annual and Periodic Reports section of the Company's website: www.retailholdings.com, and can be obtained free of charge via email or mail request to Amy Pappas, Corporate Secretary, at the contact details indicated below.
Singer India Limited, an associate company, which is the Company's only remaining operating entity, performed well in the first quarter of 2021, although second quarter performance was negatively impacted by the Covid-19 resurgence and renewed lockdowns in India. For additional information about the India Company, see the Singer India website: www.singerindia.net.
Commenting on the 2021 first half results, Stephen H. Goodman, the Company's Chairman, President and CEO, noted, "The Company's results are consistent with management's expectations and Retail Holdings liquidation strategy. Management anticipates that the sale of its remaining stake in the India business will be completed by year-end 2021 or early in 2022. In the interim period, the Company will have to fund continuing, albeit declining, legacy expenses, certain fixed costs of being a public company, and maintain a management structure, resulting in continuing P&L losses. Management continues to believe that an additional distribution of up to $0.50 per Share may be paid to shareholders, probably early 2022, with a final nominal liquidation distribution sometime thereafter, although these amounts and their timing cannot be assured and in practice the anticipated distributions may not take place. I encourage all shareholders to read the complete Summary Semi-Annual Report for the six months ended June 30, 2021."
