Further re Final Results

Brambles Industries PLC
04 September 2002


Amendment to 2001/02 Final Results Presentation Slides

Following the announcement of Brambles 2001/02 Final Results on 28 August, 2002,
an Analysts' Briefing was held in London.  Copies of the slides presented,
together with copies of slides presented at an Analysts' Briefing in Sydney were
subsequently placed on the Brambles web site later that day.

Brambles wishes to advise of amendments to slide 49 of the UK presentation and
slide 47 of the Australian presentation in respect of Operating Cash Flow by
Business for the 2001/02 Final Results.

The correct analysis for this allocation is:

£'m                                     CHEP         Cleanaway         Recall    Industrial       Regional

Cash Flow from Trading (1)             1,204               422             98           166             98

(1)  Cash Flow from Trading is made up of EBITDA, working capital movements
(incl provision

movements) and proceeds on sale of plant and equipment.

The changes are in the business allocations only and do not affect the financial
statements or the total Group cash flow amounts in either the London or 
Australian Stock Exchange releases for the final results.

The updated slides have been inserted into the presentation slides on the
Brambles web site.
