26 November 2004

26 November 2004

                              BOARD CHANGES AT IMI

IMI plc, the major international engineering solutions business, announces that
Gary Allen has today advised the Board of his decision to retire as Chairman and
step down from the Board at the year end.

In consequence the following further Board changes are announced:

   • Jim Leng has agreed that from 1 January 2005 he will take on the role of
     non-executive Chairman until such time as a successor is appointed. It is
     anticipated that a new Chairman will be in place by the next Annual General
     Meeting in May 2005, at which time Mr Leng does not intend to seek
     re-election for a further term as a director.

   • Terry Gateley is today appointed as senior independent non-executive

Commenting on his decision to retire Gary Allen said, 'On my appointment as
Chairman in 2001, IMI was about to undertake a significant restructuring and

phase of this programme has been successfully completed and our interim results
demonstrated the progress we have made with increased profit and dividend and a
healthy balance sheet. Earlier this year we strengthened the executive team to
focus more of Martin's time on the strategic development and growth of the
Group. Being Chairman throughout this transition has given me tremendous
satisfaction. However, I believe that the time is right for IMI to find a new,
long term Chairman as it progresses into the next phase of its development.
Accordingly, I have decided to step down at the end of this year to allow my
colleagues on the Board to conduct the process for the appointment of my

Martin Lamb said, 'During his long and distinguished career with IMI, Gary has
made a unique contribution to its successful development. I have very much
enjoyed working with him, both in his role as Chief Executive and as Chairman,
but accept and understand his decision to retire at the end of the year. He
leaves with the Group in good shape'.
