Xansa plc (the "Company") announces that 1,634,214 ordinary shares of 5 pence
each ("Ordinary Shares") have been admitted to the Official List and dealings
commenced on Thursday, 28 September 2006. These Ordinary Shares have been
issued as a result of elections received pursuant to the Company's scrip
dividend offer in respect of the final dividend for the year ended 30 April
2006. These Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the Company's existing
issued Ordinary Shares.

The Company further announces that it received notification on 28 September
2006 that the following directors were allocated Ordinary Shares having elected

Mrs M Cox, wife of Xansa's Chief Executive, Mr A R Cox, notified the Company on
28 September 2006 that she had participated in the scrip dividend offer and had
received 3,316 Ordinary Shares. As a consequence Mr Cox's beneficial and
