Sale of 1.3 million shares in Kerzner International Ltd



Caledonia Investments plc ('Caledonia') announces that it has agreed to sell
1.3m shares in the resorts developer and operator, Kerzner International Ltd 
('KI'), at a price of $47.5 per share.



At today's exchange rates, the value of the KI shares to be sold by Caledonia
amounts to £33.3m and, upon satisfaction of the closing conditions which it is
hoped will be by no later than the end of August, the proceeds from the sale
will be used for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of
Caledonia's existing bank borrowings. The KI shares to be sold were held in
Caledonia's balance sheet at 31 March 2004 at a value of £32.2m.



Following completion of the sale, Caledonia will retain a stake of approximately
13 per cent in KI's share capital.
