                Vedior acquires UK interim management specialist
                      For release at 8.30am on 22 May 2006

Vedior is pleased to announce that Albemarle Interim Management ('Albemarle'),
its specialist interim management subsidiary, has acquired a 100% interest in
Walker-Cox Ltd and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Food Manufacturing Consultancy
Ltd, ('Walker-Cox' or 'the Company'), one of the UK's fastest growing interim
management companies.

Walker-Cox is a well-known and highly respected interim management specialist
providing experienced senior directors and executives to both the public and
private sectors. Within the public sector, Walker-Cox is the Managing Partner of
a consortium of 33 consultancy companies providing a wide range of services to
the public sector under the 'S-Cat' procurement scheme. The Company's private
sector business encompasses a number of disciplines and sectors but has a
particular focus on the science and food manufacturing markets. The Company also
provides clients with a range of consultancy services and bespoke training

Being based in Solihull in the West Midlands, Walker-Cox provides a geographical
complement to Albemarle which is headquartered in London.

Zach Miles, Vedior's Chief Executive said, 'The UK interim management sector has
developed strongly over recent years. The addition of Walker-Cox to our
portfolio of UK recruitment brands has strengthened our market position in
interim management which, in future, should enable us to benefit more
effectively from positive trends in this market.'

Founded in 1998, Walker Cox achieved unaudited annual sales for the year ended
31 December 2005 of £3.1 million (€4.5 million).

Walker-Cox's existing management team will continue to develop the Company.
