                      Proposal received from shareholders                      

The Board of Bumi plc ("the Company") has received a proposal from PT Bakrie
and Brothers Tbk and Long Haul Holdings Limited (collectively the "Bakrie
Group") to cancel their indirect approximately 23.8% shareholding in the
Company, in exchange for an equivalent value of PT Bumi Resources Tbk ("Bumi
Tbk") shares representing 10.3% of the total outstanding share capital of Bumi
Tbk as presently held through the Company. In addition, the Bakrie Group has
made a conditional proposal to buy back the remaining 18.9% shareholding in
Bumi Tbk for cash before Christmas 2012.

The Board is considering the share exchange proposal and will make a
recommendation to shareholders. It will also consider the offer to buy back the
remaining 18.9% shareholding in Bumi Tbk.

The Bakrie Group has further made a conditional proposal to make a cash offer
within the next six months for the Company's approximately 84.7% shareholding
in PT Berau Coal Energy Tbk.
