The announcement of financial results is being delayed to allow additional time to complete the yearend closing process.

Pat Roney, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vintage Wine Estates, Inc., commented, “While we had an excellent fourth quarter with strong demand in each of our three major market channel platforms, we have had to address personnel shortages, the untimely passing of a key staff member and turnover in our finance and accounting department which encumbered our efforts to close on schedule. We have employed outsourced services, are beefing up the team and are implementing work processes to improve our timeliness and ensure we have a robust reporting platform. We look forward to updating investors on our strategic progress next week.”
