“The IoF and PFRA have today agreed to set a new date for the formal vote to confirm our merger, allowing both our organisations to complete all the legal requirements of the due diligence process. The Boards of both organisations remain entirely committed to merging at the earliest opportunity and the target date for completing the merger remains unchanged at 31st July.”
