Belize City, Belize, 7 April, 2020 -- Caribbean Investment Holdings Limited (London - AIM:  CIHL; Bermuda - CIHL) (the "Company" or "CIHL").


The Board of CIHL regularly reviews the optimum structure of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group"). It announces today that it is exploring the continuation of the parent holding company of the Group, from Belize to the British Virgin Islands (the "Continuation") because it believes that the British Virgin Islands offers a more appropriate holding company environment for CIHL.


The Board will provide further details of the proposed Continuation in due course, which is anticipated to complete, should it proceed, in late April 2020.

There can be no certainty that the proposed Continuation will occur. However, should the proposed Continuation become effective it is expected that the Company will have a new ISIN, which will be VGG1991M1032. Should the Continuation occur it is expected that the new ISIN will be effective from 21 April 2020.

The Group's business would not change as a consequence of the Continuation and there would be no change to the Company, the Board of Directors, or the Group's assets and liabilities, should the Continuation proceed. The Company would maintain its quotation on AIM and the Bermuda Stock Exchange following the Continuation.
