               F.I.GROUP SHAREHOLDERS' VOTE IN FAVOUR OF XANSA



F.I.GROUP PLC, a leading Business Consultancy, IT and Outsourcing company,
announces that at today's Extraordinary General Meeting (Thursday 26 April
2001) shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of changing the Company's
name to Xansa plc.



With effect from 1 May 2001, F.I.GROUP PLC will be known as Xansa plc, and can
be located under the London Stock Exchange's code XAN.



The Xansa name will operate world wide, bringing all businesses together under
one identity and as one organisation.



Executive Chairman, Hilary Cropper, comments:



'Today's overwhelming approval by shareholders marks the final step in a
process we started over a year ago.  From next week we will cease to operate
as a number of distinct brands and company names and will trade as one
organisation world wide.  I am delighted with the shareholders' endorsement
and excited about moving Xansa forward internationally with the clarity of a
single brand.'


                                                            ENDS
