The Company announces the following change to the Board of directors.

Rod A Matthews has resigned from the Board of directors and has been replaced
as non-executive Chairman by Les Halpin.

Rod was appointed to the Board in 2003 as Chairman and, from May 2004 until
September 2011, also held the position of Chief Executive. During his tenure
with the business, Rod delivered a number of key business acquisitions and a
move into profit. With the appointment of Ms Braziel as Chief Executive in
September 2011, Rod reverted to the position of non-executive Chairman.

Les Halpin made his first investment in the Company in 2008 and is now the
Company's largest shareholder joining the Board in December 2010. He now
assumes the role of Chairman. Les, on behalf of the Board of directors wishes
to thank Rod for all his work in guiding the Company to its current position.

Following the directorate change described above, the total directors'
shareholding of the Company's issued share capital is 26.70%; with the
