Response to media speculation


The Board of Reach plc ("Reach" or the "Company") notes the recent media speculation and confirms that it is in the early stages of discussions in relation to acquiring certain of JPI Media's assets. As has been previously stated by the Company, regular consideration is given to merger and acquisition opportunities which would accelerate its strategy. There can be no certainty at this stage that these discussions will lead to an agreed transaction.

A further announcement will be made if and when appropriate.

The person who arranged for the release of this announcement on behalf of Reach was Simon Fuller, Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary.
