Further to the announcement made on Friday 21 October 2011, Webb Capital
announces today that it has concluded a placing to raise £200,000 before
expenses. The money being raised will provide further working capital headroom
in the Group's budget and enable it to better take advantage of opportunities
which are becoming available.

Accordingly, the Company has today allotted a total of 1,333,335 new ordinary
shares ("the Placing") at a price of 15p ("the Placing Shares").

The new ordinary shares rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares and
application has been made for 1,333,335 new ordinary shares to be admitted to
PLUS.

The following Directors have subscribed for shares in the Placing:

                                                          Revised

Following the Placing and issue of the Ordinary Shares the total number of
ordinary shares in issue will be 9,486,886.

In parallel with the placing the Company is also seeking to add to its holding
in BWA Group plc and to this end, it has purchased from Peter Webb 4.6 million
shares in that company at a price of 0.65p per share. As Peter Webb is a
director this is a Related Party Transaction. Accordingly, the Directors,
having reviewed the transaction terms, consider the terms of the transaction to
be fair and reasonable insofar as the shareholders of the Company are
concerned.

The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement
