Further to the announcement on 24 November 2014 regarding the Placing and Proposed Acquisitions, Benchmark Holdings plc announces that at the Company's General Meeting held at 4.00pm today, all resolutions were duly passed. The acquisitions of Stofnfiskur and SalmoBreed are expected to complete on 19 December upon satisfaction of the final conditions.

Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will be 219,330,095 ordinary shares of 0.1p each.
