Yesterday we published a story which referred to The Hut Group abandoning plans for an IPO which we would like to clarify.

This information did not come directly from the company and we would like to make clear that The Hut had no plans for an IPO and therefore it was incorrect to state that any such plan had been abandoned. We are happy to point out that while The Hut Group board periodically reviews the timing and requirement for an IPO, it has not worked on a listing at any time in 2014 either internally or with any external advisors.
