                           VIROTEC INTERNATIONAL LTD

                                SHARE PLACEMENT

Virotec International Ltd ('Virotec') announces a Placing (the 'Placing') of
25,000,000 new ordinary shares (the 'Placing Shares') at a price of GBP 14p
(approx AUD 34cents).

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Sheeran explains, 'The purpose of
this Placing, which raises approximately GBP£3.4 million (approx AUD$8.2
million) net of expenses, is to assist in the implementation and expansion of
the Company's strategy and to respond to growing investor interest in the UK. We
believe significant market opportunities exist for our wide ranging remediation
technologies in the UK and the rest of Europe.'

The Placing Shares constitute 14.9 per cent of Virotec's current issued share

The Placing Shares are being placed with investors by Numis Securities Limited
('Numis Securities'). The Placing is conditional on the admission of the Placing
Shares to dealing on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock
Exchange becoming effective by no later than 8.00 a.m. on 2 September 2003 (or
by such later time and date as Numis Securities and Virotec may decide but no
later than 9 September 2003).  The Placing Shares will rank pari passu in all
respects with the existing ordinary shares of Virotec in issue.

Application will be made for the 25,000,000 new ordinary shares to be admitted
to dealing on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange and
to be granted official quotation on the Australian Stock Exchange.  It is
expected that admission will become effective and dealings will commence on 2
September 2003.

Virotec also announces that the unaudited results of the Virotec Group for the
year ended 30 June 2003 show revenues of approximately GBP£0.7 million (AUD$1.7
million) and a net loss before tax of approximately GBP£2.3 million (AUD$5.6
million).  At 30 June 2003 Virotec had a cash balance of GBP£2.6 million
(AUD$6.4 million).  Virotec expects to release its full trading results for the
year ended 30 June 2003, by mid September 2003.
