Brambles Sells EUROTAINER FOR EUR 89 million

Brambles has sold its specialised tank container assets to Groupe Ermewa, its
joint venture partner, for EUR 89 million (US$106 million) in cash.

The sale comprises Brambles' owned iso-tank container fleet, as well as
Brambles' 50% interest in Eurotainer SA, a management services company, and
Eurotainer Finance SAS. It is subject to approval from the relevant competition
authorities in Germany, a process that is likely to take a few weeks.
