Amsterdam, The Netherlands



               Vedior acquires Dutch legal recruitment specialist
                   For release at 8:00 am on 06 December 2006




Vedior is pleased to announce it has acquired a 70% interest in Voxius BV 
('Voxius' or 'the Company'), a leading Dutch legal recruitment specialist.

Founded in 1997, Voxius' specialised services include the provision of legal
interim professional through the Lease a Lawyer(R) brand, and the search and
selection of lawyers for permanent positions under the Legal Search brand.

Voxius' clients include major multinationals, local industry leaders and
prominent private and commercial law firms. The Company is one of the top 3
independent legal staffing companies in the Netherlands but their reputation and
experience extends beyond the Dutch market. As part of the Vedior Group, Voxius
will be able to take better advantage of the increasing internationalisation of
legal recruitment via Vedior's established legal staffing presence in the UK,
US, France, Australia and Hong Kong markets, primarily under the Hughes Castell
brand.

Zach Miles, Vedior's Chief Executive, said, 'Legal staffing is relatively
underdeveloped in the Netherlands compared to other sectors and the future
demand for legal professionals and paralegals is predicted to be high. The
addition of Voxius to our network extends the global range of our legal services
and increases our presence in professional/executive recruitment in the Dutch
market.'

Vedior operates in the Netherlands under the well known 'Vedior' and 'Dactylo'
brands but also has a portfolio of niche recruitment brands targeting
professional/executive sectors such as De Onderwijs (education), Expand
(executive) Expectra (engineering), Funktie Mediair (interim management),
Mailprofs (facility management), Rekenmeesters (accounting/finance), Mintz
(outplacement), PTS, Sapphire and Talisman (ICT), Select Audio Visual (TV/
broadcasting), Societas (social benefits), Sparq (teleservices) and
Staffplanning (various sectors for personnel with an academic degree).

Based in Rotterdam, Voxius achieved audited annual sales of €3.7 million for the
year ended 31 December 2005.

Voxius' existing management team will continue to develop the Company. The
outstanding 30% interest will remain with Voxius' management.
