AGM Statement

Vebnet Holdings PLC
30 November 2004



                VEBNET (HOLDINGS) PLC - CHAIRMAN'S AGM STATEMENT

                On track to double turnover in 2004/05 H1 and FY

At the AGM in Edinburgh this morning of Vebnet, the AIM-traded employee benefits
software company, non-executive Chairman, Derek Scott, will announce further
growth in revenues, new client wins, and an update on current trading and
prospects.

'With the preliminary announcement, on 9 September 2004, of the results for the
year ended 30 June 2004, we said that we were seeing a strong increase in the
number of enquiries from company prospects regarding our core FIX&FLEX(R)
technology. I am, therefore, pleased to confirm significant growth in new client
employee numbers. New clients which have gone live since year-end include:

   • Nationwide Building Society
   • Honda
   • Wrigleys
   • Capital International (global investment management company)
   • Novar (building control systems)
   • EdP (Energias de Portugal - state owned utility)

'In addition, we have won our first client in Ireland. The pipeline for both
direct business and indirect business, through our several licence partners,
remains strong.

'Unaudited revenues for the four months ended 31 October 2004 increased by 67%
in comparison with the equivalent four months in 2003.
'On 19 October 2004, we announced a material contract win to the market. This
partnership, with a major UK financial institution to develop a work site
marketing solution based around FIX&FLEX(R), is progressing well and will
contribute significant revenues in the current year ending 30 June 2005.
Consequently, we are on track to achieve our objective of doubling turnover for
both the half year ending 31 December 2004 and the full financial year.'
