Merger Discussions

14 November 2006

The Board of Great Portland Estates plc ('GPE') notes the proposed merger
between Derwent Valley Holdings plc and London Merchant Securities plc ('LMS').

GPE was only interested in a transaction which would have been value enhancing
for GPE's shareholders and accordingly is no longer considering a possible offer
for LMS.
