AGM Statement

Scapa Group PLC ("Scapa"), a leading global supplier of bonding materials and solutions, is today issuing the following statement in respect of the quarter ended 30 June 2015 ahead of its Annual General Meeting to be held at 10:30am today.

The Group's trading performance for the first quarter is in line with the Board's expectations, with both Healthcare and Industrial performing as anticipated.

In April 2015, Scapa initiated a formal process of consultation with employees on the proposed closure of its manufacturing facility in Rorschach, Switzerland. The consultation process has concluded and the decision has been made to close this facility which is in line with the strategy to optimise return on capital employed. Further information will be provided following the interim period end.

Scapa is well positioned to make further progress this year and the Board remains confident about the Group's outlook.
