4 December 2012

GB00B4BQK602

                               WEBB CAPITAL PLC                                

                       ("Webb Capital" or the "Company")                       

                  Proposed Withdrawal from ISDX Growth Market                  

The Directors of Webb Capital announce that they intend to  seek the withdrawal
of the  Company's securities  from trading on the ISDX  Growth Market ("ISDX").
The Company has posted a copy of this announcement to shareholders today.

The Directors of Webb Capital have  been aware, for some time, of an absence of
liquidity in the trading of the  ordinary shares of the Company  and  following
consultation with the Company's  major  shareholders,  the  Directors  of  Webb
Capital have concluded that the best  interests of  the  shareholders  will  be
served by de-listing from the market.

The withdrawal will also save fees associated  with maintaining  the  Company's
Listing and the amount of management time spent in ensuring compliance with the
rules of ISDX.

Withdrawal Process

Under the ISDX Rules, Webb Capital is required to give shareholders a period of
10 business days to object to the intended withdrawal of  its  securities  from
the ISDX Growth Market. Any shareholder wishing to raise  an  objection  should
contact ISDX in confidence by Tuesday, 18 December 2012.

Where, after the period of 10 business days, legitimate  objections  have  been
raised to a proposed withdrawal, such withdrawal must be  made  conditional  on
the consent of 75% of votes cast by its  shareholders  at  a  general  meeting,
unless in the particular circumstances, ISDX agrees that the objections are not
material.

If no objections have been received  by Tuesday, 18 December 2012, the  Company
intends to have its  shares withdrawn from  the ISDX Growth Market at the close
of business on Wednesday, 19 December 2012.

Strategy following the Withdrawal

The Directors will continue to operate the Company as it has been run, to  date
with monthly board meetings and half yearly and annual accounts will be sent to
shareholders.

There are no current arrangements for dealing in the Company's shares following
the withdrawal. However, it is the Company's intention to  offer shareholders a
suitable arrangement whereby buyers and sellers  can  be  matched  as  soon  as
possible.

The Directors of Webb Capital Plc are responsible  for  the  contents  of  this
announcement.
