                            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,
reported continuing strong growth in its core business.

'Since 1 July 2007, the commencement of the current financial year, FIX&FLEX(R),
the Group's software application, has been implemented by 20 new clients
covering over 42,000 employees. These new clients include Ernst & Young,
Liverpool Victoria and First Group's Scotrail and TransPennine Express train
operating companies. A further 17 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 2007, was
277,345 - a 13% increase since the year-end.

On 24 September 2007 Mercer entered into a ten-year licence agreement to use
Vebnet's FIX&FLEX(R) technology as the core application of its UK based flexible
benefits services. Mercer is one of the top four global employee benefit
consultants operating in over 40 countries. This significant, milestone
agreement covers the migration of Mercer's existing UK client base to FIX&FLEX
(R) as well as giving Mercer the option to extend the execution of the agreement
into other European markets.

For the current financial year Vebnet will adopt international accounting
standards - IFRS, and report on this basis for the first time with its Interim
Report in February 2008.
