('W.H. Ireland' or the 'Company')
Offer Talks Terminated
On 5 October 2007, W.H. Ireland announced that it had received a number of
approaches regarding a potential offer for the Company and subsequently
confirmed on 27 December that it continued to consider such approaches.
Following further discussions, it has not been possible to reach agreement on
terms of a formal offer which the Board of W.H. Ireland feels adequately
reflects the value of the Company and which it is able to recommend to
shareholders. As a consequence, the Board of W.H. Ireland announces that all
discussions relating to an offer have now ceased and that the Company is no
longer in an Offer Period.
As previously indicated, W.H. Ireland will announce its preliminary results for
the year ended 30 November 2007 on 25 February 2008.
