CQS RIG Finance Fund LTD

Statement re Filing of Annual Report & Acco...


For immediate release on 8 April 2009

 THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN OR INTO  
THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND, THE REPUBLIC OF 
                             SOUTH AFRICA OR JAPAN                             

                 CQS Rig Finance Fund Limited (the "Company")                  

        Statement re filing of Annual Report and Accounts with the CISX        

The Company's shares were suspended from trading on AIM on 30 October 2008. The
Company has continued to pursue discussions regarding its financing position
with its lenders.  As a consequence, discussions with the Company's secured
lender are now at an advanced stage but a binding agreement has not been
reached in time to finalise the report and accounts for the year ended 30
September 2008 which is required under CISX Listing Rule 7.6.18.

The Company has therefore applied to the CISX for an extension to the date for
the filing of its Annual Accounts and the CISX has granted such an extension to
the Company until 30 April 2009. For the avoidance of doubt, this filing
extension does not apply to AIM, which pursuant to AIM Rule 41 will cancel the
admission of the Company's shares where they have been suspended from trading
for six months.
