Re:  Chapter 16, Paragraph 13 of CONTINUING OBLIGATIONS





Xansa plc (the "Company") announces that it received notification on 28 February
2005 for the purposes of Section 329 of the Companies Act 1985 that at 25
February 2005 Xansa Trustee Company Limited, trustee of the Inland Revenue
approved Xansa All Employee Share Ownership Plan ('AESOP') had sold 3,656 of the
Company's ordinary shares of 5 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") at 95.25 pence
each.  The trustee also advised of a reverse transfer of shares in respect of
3,566 Ordinary Shares.  Both of these transactions were made on behalf of
participants leaving the AESOP.



The AESOP Trust is a discretionary trust for the benefit of employees of the
Company and its subsidiaries, which operates in conjunction with the Company's
AESOP and holds Ordinary Shares purchased by employees under the Partnership and
Matching shares section of AESOP.



Executive directors who are potential beneficiaries of the AESOP are;



            Mrs L K Barrat

            Mr A R Cox

            Mr P R Gill

            Mr S R Weston



The total holding of the AESOP Trust amounts to 16,944,438 Ordinary Shares.
