Directorate Change

Venturia PLC
13 September 2002

                   Venturia plc ('Venturia' or 'the Company')




Venturia announced earlier this year the disposal of its On-line Advertising
Business, which left the company with no business but with cash resources which
are currently approximately £3.09 million. Approximately 75.09 per cent. of the
ordinary shares of the Company are controlled by Buyersguide (Holdings) Limited
which is in administrative receivership.


In these circumstances, the directors do not consider it is in the interests of
shareholders for the Company to retain a board whose size is more appropriate to
a company with an operating business. Mr Alan Clarke, who was appointed chairman
on 30 July 2002 and Mr Richard Walker will continue on the Board; the remaining
directors of the Company, Messrs Howard Flight MP, Tony Caplin, Kevin Leech and
John Browning have today resigned.


Mr Clarke and Mr Walker will complete a review of the Company's position and in
the light of that review will determine how best to return value to
shareholders.
