Johnson Fry Holdings

Blocking Listing Notice

Johnson Fry Holdings PLC
11 February 2000


Johnson Fry Holdings PLC ('Johnson Fry') has today filed its six monthly Block
Listing return for the period to 31 January 2000 in accordance with the rules
and regulations of the London Stock Exchange. The allotments made during the
six month period ended 31 January 2000 were all made on the exercise of
options under the Johnson Fry share option schemes.

The offer by Legg Mason (UK) Holdings plc ('Legg Mason') for the whole of the
issued and to be issued share capital of Johnson Fry, which was made on 22
October 1999, was declared unconditional on 6 December 1999 and Legg Mason has
now acquired 90 per cent of the shares to which the offer relates.  

Accordingly Legg Mason has exercised its rights under Sections 428 to 430F of
the Companies Act 1985 to compulsorily acquire the outstanding shares in
Johnson Fry from non-assenting Johnson Fry shareholders and, at the expiry of
the six week compulsory acquisition period, it is therefore anticipated that
the Johnson Fry shares will cease to be listed.
