J2C plc

Closure of trading operations

In an announcement on 10 August 2001, the Directors of J2C plc ('J2C' or the
'Company') referred to a number of issues which remained to be resolved prior
to the posting of a circular to shareholders in connection with the proposed
reduction of capital.

One of the outstanding issues was the resolution of the future of the
Company's remaining trading operations, namely BestValueZone ('BVZ'), which is
a combination of the businesses of Industry On-Line and Tradezone, and
Translinx.  The Directors have been seeking purchasers for both BVZ and

The Directors have spent several weeks in detailed discussions with an
interested party over the sale of BVZ.  These discussions have now terminated
and the Directors consider that a sale of the business is unlikely to generate
value for shareholders.  Consequently, the Directors have decided to close the
BVZ business.

Discussions have also been held with several parties over the sale of
Translinx.  Whilst there remains the possibility that certain assets, such as
the name and technology of Translinx, will be sold, Translinx will not be sold
as a going concern.  Consequently, the Directors have also decided to close
this business.  As a result all of the Group's trading operations will cease.
