On behalf of:               Eredene Capital PLC ('Eredene' or the 'Company')

Eredene Capital PLC


Eredene Capital PLC (AIM: ERE), a leading AIM quoted investor in Indian ports, logistics and transport infrastructure, notes recent press coverage and confirms that it is in discussions with some of its existing shareholders and others in connection with a possible fundraising.


At the time of Eredene's interim statement of 10 December 2010, it was announced that the Company had postponed raising additional capital for the Ennore Container Terminal in Tamil Nadu, India, and pipeline port and infrastructure projects pending the appointment of a new non-executive Chairman. Struan Robertson was appointed to the post on 21 March 2011, and this process has therefore recommenced. The proposed fundraising is intended to raise up to £40m, and at this level the Company has received indications of support from three of its largest shareholders for approximately £22m at a price of 18p per share.


A further announcement will be made in due course.
