Marchpole to sell Ozwald Boateng Diffusion Collection until Oct'09

Dec '06
Marchpole Holdings plc wishes to clarify the facts in relation to the current legal status of its Licence Agreement to produce and sell Ozwald Boateng Diffusion Collection garments in the United Kingdom.

The Licence Agreement was granted in October 2002 and runs until October 2009.

On 3 November 2006, the Court of Appeal held that an Order obtained by Bespoke Couture Limited from the High Court in December 2005 to the effect that the Licence Agreement had been terminated was wrong and overturned the High Court Judgment.

Earlier this year, Bespoke Couture Limited sold a diffusion range of garments to some of the Company's customers in breach of the Licence Agreement.

The Company commenced proceedings in June 2006 against Bespoke Couture Limited claiming damages and in those proceedings Bespoke Couture Limited have made a Counterclaim in which it alleges that it has new grounds to terminate the Licence Agreement.

The Company has been advised that Bespoke Couture Limited has no prospect of success and that it will be awarded substantial damages against Bespoke Couture Limited.

The Company is seeking trial of the new action at the earliest possible date which is likely to be in about March or April 2007.

In the meantime, the Company have continued to produce and sell Boateng Diffusion garments for Spring/Summer 2007 and will be doing so for the Autumn/Winter 2007 season.
