Total Office Grp PLC

Appointment of Receiver

7 October 1999

('Total Office Group' or the 'Company')

Appointment of Receiver

Further to the announcement earlier today, the Board of Total Office Group
announces, with very great regret, that talks with Steelcase, its principal
supplier, have broken down irretrievably.

Notwithstanding the Board's most strenuous efforts to demonstrate to Steelcase
the viability of the Board's strategy to dispose of its constituent businesses
as going concerns, Steelcase has withdrawn its dealerships from Total Office
Group and has suspended all shipments.  The Board has therefore had no
alternative but to request the Royal Bank of Scotland to appoint a receiver.
