Thursday 9th June 2011.  The High Court has today granted a direction order to the Minister for Finance, Mr Michael Noonan TD, in respect of Irish Life & Permanent plc ("IL&P").  The direction order, which will have effect 5 working days from today, was granted pursuant to Section 9 of the Credit Institutions (Stabilisation) Act 2010.


IL&P announced on 31 March 2011 that "as a consequence of the scale of the recapitalisation needs of the bank, the life and banking businesses would be separated and the current group structure unwound".


The order directs IL&P to make preparations for the possible disposal of the business and assets of Irish Life Limited (the "Irish Life business") by either (i) a possible initial public offering of some or all of the Irish Life Business and/or (ii) a possible private sale of some or all of the Irish Life business.  A copy of the direction order will be made available on the Company's web site [].


Speaking today a spokesman for IL&P said that "following our announcement on 31 March 2011, the Direction Order was required to ensure that IL&P could make preparations to ensure that the Irish Life business will be offered for sale by 31 October 2011 as part of the recapitalisation of IL&P."
