Condor Resources Plc

('Condor' or the 'Company')

Response to Classdrive Plc announcement

The board of Condor Resources Plc (the 'Board') notes the announcement by Classdrive Plc ('Classdrive') stating that Classdrive is considering making an approach which may or may not lead to an offer being made for Condor. The announcement was made without prior warning to, or consent from, the Board.

The Board emphasises that the announcement made by Classdrive does not constitute a formal intention to make an offer for the Company and that there can be no certainty as to whether or not such an offer will be forthcoming, or the terms on which such an offer might be made. The Board recommends shareholders take no action at this time.

On 18 March 2009, Condor received an unsolicited letter from Atlantic Law LLP, Classdrive's advisers, stating that Classdrive was considering making an offer for all of the outstanding share capital of CondorClassdrive is a 'shelf' company showing £2 of capital in Companies' House records and has been dormant since its incorporation. Classdrive's directors are Michael Bernard Silver and Mark Carling Campbell. Atlantic Law has informed the Condor that the shareholders will be Michael Silver and Mark Campbell and an as yet unnamed consortium of potential investors. Condor has responded requesting details of the background and rationale for a proposed offer, the terms of such an offer and the resources by which Classdrive would fund this, as well as the details of the consortium of investors supporting the two directors of Classdrive. To date, such information has not been forthcoming.

On 30 March 2009, the Company received a requisition requiring the Company to call a general meeting to propose resolutions to remove Mark Child, Non Executive Chairman and Klaus Eckhof a Non Executive Director from the board of Condor and to replace them with Michael Silver and Michael de Villiers.  There are 4 named entities calling the requisition. The requisitionists are David Steinepreis, Aitco Limited a company associated with Christopher Page, Hargreave Hale Nominees Limited, which holds shares in Condor solely on behalf of Global Investment Strategy UK Ltd a company of which John Gunn is a director and Pershing Nominees Limited which hold shares for over a dozen shareholders. The Board notes that shares are held at Pershing Nominees Limited on behalf of Fair Choice Limited a company of which Michael Silver is a director. 

On 20 April 2009, the Company received notification from Atlantic Law withdrawing the requisition. Given that Michael Silver is one of the two directors of Classdrive and was also one of the proposed directors of the Company under the requisition, the Company believes that the approach and the requisition are connected. 

The Board of Condor will consider any potential approach from Classdrive on its merits including, inter alia, value to shareholders, deliverability and Classdrive's intentions for the business.

The Company is now considered to be in an 'offer period' as defined in the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the 'Code'), and the dealing disclosure requirements listed below will apply.

In accordance with Rule 2.10 of the Code, the Company confirms that it has 330,311,753 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in issue. The ISIN reference for these securities is GB00B128J781.

Further announcements will be made as and when required.

Dealing Disclosure Requirements

Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Takeover Code (the 'Code'), if any person is, or becomes, 'interested' (directly or indirectly) in 1% or more of any class of 'relevant securities' of Classdrive or of the Company, all 'dealings' in any 'relevant securities' of that company (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such 'relevant securities') must be publicly disclosed by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the London business day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement will continue until the date on which the offer becomes, or is declared, unconditional as to acceptances, lapses or is otherwise withdrawn or on which the 'offer period' otherwise ends. If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire an 'interest' in 'relevant securities' of the Company, they will be deemed to be a

single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Code, all 'dealings' in 'relevant securities' of Classdrive or of the Company by Classdrive or the Company, or by any of their respective 'associates', must be disclosed by no later than 12.00 noon (London time) on the London business day following the date of the relevant transaction.

A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose 'relevant securities' 'dealings' should be disclosed, and the number of such securities in issue, can be found on the Takeover Panel's website at

'Interests in securities' arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an 'interest' by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.

Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Code, which can also be found on the Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a 'dealing' under Rule 8, you should consult the Panel.
