Update on Trading Activity

The Board of Directors of HRC World Plc ("HRC") are aware of certain articles in the media concerning the Hard Rock Cafés in Shanghai and Hangzhou and wish to clarify the position.

The two cafes are in the process of being relocated to more prestigious premises, in Shanghai next to the new W Hotel, and in Hangzhou next to the new Kempinski Hotel. It is expected that both these Shanghai and Hangzhou cafés will reopen in their new respective locations around December 2018.

Whilst the relocations are obviously operationally disruptive in the short term, the Board believes that they allow the two cafes to generate significantly enhanced footfall and revenue going forward. While HRC is not directly involved in the café development works, it is certainly in our interest to see that these cafés are located at appropriate locations.

Meanwhile, the opening of the third café in Chengdu has been delayed due to technical reasons, but is currently expected to be operational by Q1 2019.

THE DIRECTORS OF HRC WORLD PLC ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS ANNOUNCEMENT
