MacLellan Group plc ("MacLellan")


Closure of the Rover Group

As a consequence of the closure of the Rover Group manufacturing facilities at
Longbridge, MacLellan's interim results for the six months ending 30 June 2005
will include unbudgeted costs of approximately £400,000 in respect of
uncollectible debt and redundancies and associated employment costs of the 55
employees deployed on the various contracts at the MG Rover and Powertrain sites
at Longbridge.

Commenting on the situation John Foley, Chief Executive of MacLellan, said:

"Although the annual value of our contracts at MG Rover and Powertrain had
reduced very significantly in recent years to an annual rate of approximately
£1.25 million, we have worked at the Longbridge site for over 18 years and our
employees affected by this closure have an average length of service of 8 years.
The one-off cost of approximately £400,000 mainly reflects the redundancy and
associated costs of employees who worked at the Longbridge site. This one-off
cost and the loss of these contracts will have no impact on the future
underlying earnings of the Group."
