Donation of Shares to Charity

 

On 26 March 2018 Superdry was notified by Julian Dunkerton, one of the Company's founders, that he intends to transfer ordinary shares up to the value of £1,157,486 by way of a personal donation to The Blue Marine Foundation.

 

The Blue Marine Foundation is a UK registered charity that exists to protect our seas, by combating overfishing and the destruction of biodiversity with the creation of large scale marine reserves. This donation is part of a wider legacy strategy that Julian Dunkerton has been working on outside his interests in Superdry.

 

Chris Gorell Barnes - The Co-Founder & CEO of the Blue Marine Foundation commented:

 

'We are so grateful to Julian Dunkerton for his generous and visionary support of the Blue Marine Foundation. This will enable us to roll out our model of sustainable fishing which both revives marine life and means that fishermen can earn more for fishing less.  We are hugely excited at being given this opportunity to transform the future of UK fishing. His ongoing commitment to our charity is hugely valued'
