                                PRESS RELEASE

VEOS CONTRACT FOR DISTRIBUTION OF OVES CAPS TO FAMILY PLANNING CLINICS


Veos plc, the AIM-listed female sexual health business, today announced that
its principal operating subsidiary has agreed terms with FP Sales Limited for
distribution of its Oves contraceptive cap to family planning clinics in the
UK.



FP Sales is the commercial arm of the Family Planning Association (fpa) and
distributes contraceptives and other family planning materials to some 1700
family planning clinics in the UK, which in turn provide family planning
advice to over 1 million women each year.



Peggy Czyzak-Dannenbaum, Chief Executive of Veos, commented:



'Our objective is to broaden the range of contraceptive choice available to
women, so we are delighted to be working with the team at FP Sales to ensure
that the Oves cap is widely available to all sections of the population. This
agreement perfectly complements our existing over-the-counter distribution
through Boots The Chemists. '



Colin Parker, Managing Director of FP Sales added:



'For 29 years we have been the main independent supplier of contraceptives to
clinics throughout the UK. Adding the Oves cap to our range broadens the
choice available and maintains our position as the 'One Stop Shop' for all
methods of contraception. There is a definite renewal of interest in female
barrier methods and the Oves cap should prove very successful.'
