Completion of acquisition



Origin Enterprises plc ('Origin' or 'the Group') announces that it has completed the acquisition of the fertiliser business of Carrs Milling Industries PLC ('Carrs Milling'), following the approval of the transaction by the shareholders of Carrs Milling at its General Meeting earlier today.


The fertiliser business, based in Scotland and the North of England, is a leading provider of branded specialist fertilisers together with integrated nutrient management systems servicing the arable, grassland, horticulture and forestry sectors.  The business, which services a complementary geographic footprint, markets an extensive range of technically based nutrition applications that strongly support Origin's existing position in the United Kingdom.


Further details of the transaction are set out in the Stock Exchange announcement dated 20 June 2011.
