OFX Transferring Money Internationally to Free

ASIC granted the company an extension of the date by which it must lodge the reports required to be prepared for the financial year ended 30 June 2020 under Division 1 of Part 2M.3 of the Corporations Act to 30 November 2020.


The voluntary suspension of the Company's shares from trading will be extended to 30 November 2020 to provide the Company further time to finalise its recapitalisation plan.


The company's AGM will be held on 30 November 2020 commencing at 11am. The AGM will be held virtually, with full details to be included in the Notice of AGM to be released to the ASX and sent to shareholders in October 2020.


The company has instituted proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Blue Diamond Growers. Blue Diamond and Freedom Foods Pty Ltd are party to a licence agreement in respect of Blue Diamond Almond Breeze products. The Federal Court proceedings seek, among other orders, declaratory orders in relation to the Licence Agreement. Blue Diamond has also instituted arbitral proceedings with the American Arbitration Association against FFPL. Blue Diamond seeks orders restraining FFPL (and any entity acting on behalf of or in concert with FFPL) from: manufacturing or selling nut-based beverage products in Australia or New Zealand that are not Blue Diamond products, organic or Private Label, including MILKLAB and Australia's Own brand nut-based beverage products; and purchasing non-organic almond base from sources other than Blue Diamond for the manufacture of non-organic, non-Private Label nut-based beverage products for sale in Australia and New Zealand. FFPL refutes the Blue Diamond Claim and its entitlement to the orders sought. Blue Diamond has also commenced judicial proceedings against FFPL in the United States District Court, Eastern District California for breach of an alleged oral agreement. FNP is confident in its position and intends to vigorously pursue the Freedom Foods Claim and to defend the Blue Diamond Claim and related court proceedings.


The company has secured the ongoing support of its principal lenders and majority shareholder, ensuring access to financial facilities while the company undertakes a planned recapitalisation. Freedom Foods Group has agreed a Standstill Deed with its two main lenders, HSBC and National Australia Bank regarding financing facilities with those lenders. The standstill is effective until 30 November 2020 and is subject to the company meeting certain milestones relating to the progression of the recapitalisation plan. Freedom Foods shares will remain in voluntary suspension until 30 October 2020 at the company's request.

The company has also eceived a waiver from its financiers in relation to its financial covenant obligations at 30 June 2020.
