Web Shareshop

Appointment of Director

Web Shareshop (Holdings) PLC
15 December 2000

The  Board of Web Shareshop (Holdings) plc ('Web Shareshop')
is  pleased  to announce the appointment of Bill Jackson  as
Chairman  and Chief Executive.  Bill has extensive marketing
and  management experience and an excellent track record  in
early  stage business development.  He was most recently  at
MoneyWorld, the online financial services magazine, which he
co-owned and sold at the end of 1999.

The  appointment  of  Bill  Jackson,  who  joins  the  Board
immediately, permits the founding team to step back from the
day-to-day  management of the business as it approaches  the
operational launch of its 'Placings Club'.  The software for
this   innovative  product,  designed  to   enable   private
investors  to  participate  in new  issue  placings,  is  in
development and the launch is expected to be in March  2001.
Accordingly,  the  Board announces the  retirement  of  John
Woolgar  as  Development Director and John  McNair  as  Non-
executive  Chairman.  Andrew Neubauer  also  steps  down  as
Managing   Director,  but  will  remain  on  the  Board   as
theexecutive director responsible for technology.

The   Board  would  like  to  thank  John  Woolgar  for  his
commitment to the purposes and goals of Web Shareshop.   The
business  was  born  out of his vision and  he  has  applied
enormous energy and determination in bringing his concept to
its  present  state  of preparedness for  launch.   He  will
continue to make available his detailed knowledge of the new
issues market to the Company.  He looks forward to assisting
Bill  Jackson  in  all aspects of the launch  and  continued
activity of the Placings Club.

Bill  Jackson commented: 'I am grateful to all the Directors
for  the  opportunity to lead Web Shareshop  into  the  next
phase  of its development.  The immediate challenge for  Web
Shareshop  is  to  demonstrate private investor  demand  for
placings  and  to build on initial positive  reactions  from
many  sponsors  to this significant innovation  in  the  new
issues  market. Web Shareshop is also determined to  empower
private investors through further initiatives which I  shall
announce over the coming months.'

John  McNair  commented:  'It  is  excellent  news  for  Web
Shareshop  that  Bill  Jackson will be leading  the  Company
through  its  next phase of development.  He  has  the  full
support of all the continuing and retiring directors in  his
new appointment.'

John  Woolgar added:  'I have the utmost confidence in  Bill
Jackson  whom I have known for some years.  I recruited  him
to  the Web Shareshop and, in terms of business development,
I am delighted to step down in favour of his highly relevant
experience and profitable track record.'
