WH Ireland Group plc ('WH Ireland' or the 'Company')



Statement re share price movement



The board of WH Ireland notes the recent movement in the Company's share price
and confirms that, following an approach from a third party, the Company is in
preliminary discussions with a third party which may or may not lead to an offer
being made for the Company. It is emphasised that these talks are at a very
early stage and that there is no certainty that an offer for the Company will
result.



A further announcement will be made in due course.
