Item 8.01 Other Events.


London, UK – August 31, 2023 – Babylon Holdings Limited (OTC Pink: BBLNF) (“Babylon”, and together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) today announced that after exploring strategic alternatives, substantially all of the Group’s remaining assets in the form of its UK business, have been acquired by eMed.com (the “Sale”), a US healthcare services company.


The new go-forward organization will be focused on continuing the day to day operations of the UK business. We will continue to provide quality care and services to our NHS GP at Hand, Direct-to-Consumer and Private patients and members. The Sale will provide financial stability and allow us to positively impact the lives of many more people within the UK and carry on exploring innovative approaches to proactive healthcare.


As a result of the Sale and the previously announced exit of the core US business, the remaining entities controlled by the Group are expected to be wound down in accordance with applicable geographical jurisdiction processes.


This Sale will not provide for any payment to Babylon’s Class A ordinary shareholders and other equity instrument holders.
