Virotec International Ld

                            VIROTEC INTERNATIONAL LTD

                                  21 October 2005



The directors of Virotec International Ltd (ASX/ AIM: VTI) confirm that the 2005
Annual Report and Notice of Annual General Meeting has been sent to

The Annual General Meeting is to be held at Level 5, 123 Eagle Street, Brisbane,
Australia at 10.30am (AEST) on 30 November 2005. The directors encourage
shareholders to attend the meeting.

Copies of the Annual Report and Notice of Annual General Meeting are available
from the Company's website at, on request by email
[email protected] or by telephone on +61 7 5530 8014.

Proposed removal from the Official List of ASX

One of the items of business at the Annual General Meeting that shareholders
will be asked to consider is a proposal for the removal of Virotec's shares from
the Official List of the Australian Stock Exchange Limited ('ASX').

In July 2001, the Company was listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the
London Stock Exchange ('AIM'). At present its shares can be traded on both the
ASX and AIM. The Company considers that as it moves into the next phase of its
business development it is beneficial to seek approval from the ASX for its
shares to be removed from its Official List and to trade solely on AIM. The
Company considers it important that its shareholders are involved in any
decision to cease trading on ASX and to make AIM the only market for trading
shares in the Company.

If the resolution is passed by shareholders, the Company will request removal
from ASX pursuant to ASX listing rule 17.11, to be effected no earlier than 31
December 2005.

The proposed removal from ASX reflects the Company's increasingly European and
Northern Hemisphere focus from corporate, operational and ownership
perspectives. It is also expected that the majority of the Company's future
business will be located in the Northern Hemisphere.

In terms of stock market interest and support, the Company has raised a
significant amount of capital from UK and European investors by way of share
placements since 2001, while during the same period raising no funds from new
investors in Australia. Over recent years the volume of trading conducted on ASX
has been comparatively small, and in the past year it represented only
approximately 8% of volume of trading conducted on AIM after adjusting for
trading conducted on ASX by non-Australian investors, and in recent months
approximately only 5%. The relative percentage of trading in Australia has been
steadily falling over the last two years. This decrease in trading volumes
resulted in the Company being removed from the S&P/ASX300 index in September
2005 due to its poor relative liquidity.

As a result of this strong support from AIM investors, approximately 75% of the
Company shares are held by shareholders who have registered addresses outside
Australia, approximately 72% of which are registered in Europe.

In the event the resolution is passed by shareholders and the Company is removed
from the Official List of ASX, there will only be limited changes to the
Company's circumstances.

• The Company will remain incorporated in Australia and subject to
  Australian law, most notably the Corporations Act.  It will retain a presence 
  in Australia.

• There will be only limited changes to the manner in which information
  is disclosed by the Company, with announcements and financial reports released
  by the Company available from, the Company's 
  website ( and the Australian Securities and Investments 
  Commission and other financial information sources.

• Although the Company will no longer be subject to the ASX listing
  rules, it will continue to be bound by the continuous disclosure requirements
  of the Corporations Act, and the AIM rules.

• Financial statements will be prepared under AIFRS as for any other
  Australian public company.

• Market prices are available from a number of financial websites,
  including  Market prices are also published in 
  the London Times daily and the London Financial Times on Saturdays (newspapers
  which are available in selected outlets in Australia).

The Company has been advised that Australian shareholders will be able to trade
shares in the Company via a number Australian brokers with relationships with
AIM designated brokers. Alternatively, shareholders can contact one of the
members of the London Stock Exchange who are AIM designated brokers (there are
more than 60) who will be able to facilitate trading of their shares on AIM.

If the Company proceeds to request removal from the Official List of ASX, the
Company will issue a letter to Australian registered shareholders detailing the
process by which share trades can be effected on AIM. This letter will include
the details of Australian and UK brokers that can be contacted by shareholders
to effect any trades on AIM.

Meeting or contact Angus Craig, Company Secretary on +617 5530 8014 or by email
