this market.  This acquisition is a further step in its strategy of being
directly represented in its major markets.  The cash consideration is 105
million Escudos (£322,000).  Yorkshire has an option to acquire the balance of
the shares after 31 December 2003 at a price to be calculated based on the
future trading performance of Bruncolor.
