                          Virotec International Ltd

                       added to the S&P/ASX 300 Indices

Standard & Poor's, the leading provider of equity indices in Australia, have
announced that on Friday 28 September 2001, Virotec International Ltd
('Virotec') will be added to the S&P/ASX 300 Indices and that the changes will
be reflected in the starting portfolio on Monday October 1, 2001.

Executive Chairman, Brian Sheeran commented today 'The S&P/ASX equity indices
provide benchmarks to the Australian funds management industry. Virotec
recently received solid support from key financial institutions in the UK when
its AIM listing was oversubscribed, and I would hope that this S&P
announcement will lead to even greater support from financial institutions in
the Australian sector.'
