CAPITA IN DETAILED DISCUSSIONS TO EXPAND ITS BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP WITH ZURICH

The Capita Group Plc ('Capita') announces that it is in discussions with Zurich
Financial Services Group (`Zurich') regarding a potential extension of the term
of Capita's existing contract to administer some of the processes for Zurich's
UK operations, and the expansion of its scope to support some of Zurich Global
Life's administration hubs in Europe and the Middle East.

A comprehensive assessment of the proposal and scope of operations for
inclusion in any arrangement will be undertaken over the coming months.

Any resultant arrangement would be subject to contract agreement and regulatory
approvals. There is no assurance that an agreement will be reached, and a
further announcement will be made if and when appropriate.
