                         CEO Succession Planned in 2007

                     For release at 7.00am on 27 April 2007

In October last year, at the request of the Supervisory Board, Zach Miles agreed
to extend his contract for an extra 2 years to allow time for his successor to
be appointed. After careful consideration it has now been decided to appoint an
external candidate. A search process has been started with the aim of making an
appointment later this year. Given the strong improvement in the group's
operating performance, this will be an ideal time for Mr Miles to hand over to a

Both the Supervisory Board and Mr Miles have mutually agreed that making this
appointment earlier rather than waiting until next year is sensible, as it will
allow Mr Miles' successor to influence the future development of the group at an
earlier stage. In the meantime, Mr Miles will continue as Chairman of the Board
of Management until a successor is appointed and will assist in a smooth
transfer of his responsibilities.

Mr Angenent, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, said 'Mr Miles' performance has
been truly excellent. He has made a tremendous contribution in streamlining the
Group's operations and improving their profitability, as has been evidenced by
the results published today. He has also completed several important
acquisitions. However, now the decision to make an external appointment has been
made, both the Supervisory Board and Mr Miles feel this should be done sooner
rather than later.'

A further announcement will be made as soon as a candidate has been selected and
a proposal will be put in due course to shareholders at a meeting called for
that purpose.
