                                   AGM Update

Swallowfield plc is pleased to announce that all of the resolutions presented by
the Board to members were duly approved at today's AGM.

In addition, it had been proposed that two other resolutions would be put
forward for consideration at the meeting by a member, Western Selection PLC,
proposing the appointment of each of Mr David Marshall and Mr Peter Gyllenhammar
as non-executive directors of the Company. These resolutions were withdrawn and
therefore not required to be put to the meeting.

The Board sincerely hopes that it can maintain the open and constructive
dialogue with both Western Selection and Peter Gyllenhammar going forward. The
Board notes, from the announcement made on 2 November by Western Selection, its
desire to avoid the unnecessary expense and distraction of requisitioning an
EGM. The Board would like to publicly thank Western Selection for taking this
stance as being in the best interests of the company and hopes that, following
today's vote, they and Peter Gyllenhammar will now support the Board in its
efforts to continue the turnaround in the Company's fortunes and to increase
value for all shareholders.


Swallowfield Plc.
