                     CAPITA ACQUIRES MOORGATE REGISTRARS

The Capita Group Plc ('Capita') has acquired the entire share capital of

purchase consideration of £2 million is being satisfied in cash.

Moorgate has an annual turnover of £650,000 and a small workforce of 10
people.  The business will be integrated into Capita IRG, further
consolidating Capita's position in the registration and shareholder services
market.  The business brings a stable client base of over 100 private sector
clients with the potential for Capita to add further value to them by
extending the shareholder services presently delivered to them and offering
further services from across the Group.
