Hibu Negotiations Update & All member meeting notification

29 January 2014

Hibu Administration

Members will have seen some press coverage recently indicating that Hibu is being placed into administration.  Prospect were not informed of this prior to it appearing in the press.  However we sought clarity from the company and understand that as part of this restructuring a number of non-trading parts of the Group, including hibu plc, will be wound down.  However, the trading companies in which the company works and with whom customers, partners and suppliers do business are not affected by this technical process.  Hibu UK – your employing organisation – is similarly unaffected by this development as are your employment terms and conditions.
