ordinary shares in the Company, representing 15.0% of the issued share capital.


These shares have today been placed by Investec with institutional investors at
a price of 25 pence per share ('the Placing'). The Placing is expected to
improve the liquidity of the Company's shares.

the issued share capital of Booker are as follows:

TBH Trading Limited*           24,409,745     86,190,914     5.79%


As described in the Admission Document, the Vendors have entered into an orderly
market agreement whereby they have undertaken to the Company and Investec not to
sell or otherwise dispose of their remaining holdings before the anniversary of
the date on which the shares were admitted to trading on AIM, subject to certain
exceptions.


Commenting on the Placing, Charles Wilson, Chief Executive of Booker, said, 'The
outcome of the placing shows that investors are behind our plans to create a
dynamic new force in the UK wholesale market through the combination of Booker
and Blueheath. We are delighted that the investors who have backed us in the
recent past remain committed, supportive shareholders - and pleased to welcome
many new shareholders to our register.'
