AGM Statement

Vebnet Holdings PLC
30 November 2006


                VEBNET (HOLDINGS) PLC - CHAIRMAN'S AGM STATEMENT                

At the AGM in Edinburgh this morning, of Vebnet, the AIM-traded leading provider
of technology for flexible employee benefit schemes, the Chairman, Derek Scott,
will report continuing strong growth in new client numbers.

'Since 1 July 2006, the commencement of the current financial year, FIX&FLEX(R),
the Group's core product, has been implemented by 18 new clients covering 39,736
employees. These new clients include AON, ICI, ING Direct and Royal London. A
further 13 new client implementations are already scheduled for the remainder of
the current financial year.

The total number of employees using FIX&FLEX(R), as at 1 November 2006, was
211,730 - a 23% increase in the four months since the year end. Additionally,
the integration of 4th Contact, which Vebnet acquired on 2 October 2006,
progresses well. Their employees have relocated to our London office. We are at
an early stage of reviewing our platform strategy, with a view to convergence on
a single application (for both sets of clients) and will update the market in
the new year.

The sales pipeline for both self-generated direct clients and indirect business
through our several licence partners is healthy and growing and we remain
confident of meeting market forecasts for this and the next financial year.'
