Audit Tender Process


SuperGroup announces its intention to recommend to shareholders, for approval at the 2017 Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), the appointment of Deloitte LLP ("Deloitte") as the auditor of the Group for the financial year ending 28 April 2018.


The Company stated its intention to tender the audit in the Group's Annual Report and Accounts for the financial year ended 30 April 2016.  A competitive tender process, overseen by the Group's Audit Committee, has been undertaken following changes to the UK Corporate Governance Code and EU regulation which require audit tendering and rotation.  This proposed change in auditor follows a recommendation by the Audit Committee based on the outcome of the tender process.


PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC"), the Group's current auditor, will continue in the role and will undertake the audit of the Group's financial statements for the financial year ending 29 April 2017, having been re-appointed at the 2016 AGM.


The Board would like to thank PwC for its significant contribution as the Group's auditors since their appointment in 2008 and also the other firms who took part in the tender.  SuperGroup looks forward to working with Deloitte in the future.
