Brambles today announced the sale of Cleanaway Australia and New Zealand and
Industrial Services Australia to an affiliate of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.,
the US private equity firm, for A$1.8275 billion in cash (US$1.35 billion).

The Chief Executive Officer of Brambles, David Turner, said the businesses had
attracted very strong interest from trade and private equity buyers since the
announcement on 29 November 2005 that they would be sold.

'The final bids were received late on Friday and reviewed over the weekend,' Mr
Turner said.

'Based on these bids, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts made clearly the best overall
offer - a good price and, importantly, a very clean sale able to be speedily
completed with no conditions precedent.'

The Chairman of Brambles, Don Argus, said: 'The sale of these businesses
represents a significant milestone in the execution of our strategy to focus on
CHEP and Recall, our premium growth businesses.

'As we announced in November last year, we believe this strategy will deliver
significant benefits for Brambles shareholders.'

The sale is expected to be completed in early July 2006.

The combined businesses had sales of A$863 million (US$651 million) and
comparable operating profit of A$98 million (US$74 million) for the year ended
30 June 2005. The value of the gross assets of the combined businesses as at 31
December 2005 was US$557 million.

The pre-tax profit on the sale of the businesses is expected to be approximately
US$0.9 billion.

The total proceeds of Brambles' divestments to date - Cleanaway Australia and
New Zealand, Industrial Services Australia, Cleanaway Germany, Brambles
Industrial Services Northern Hemisphere and the Regional Businesses - is US$2.44

Brambles is in the final stages of the process to sell Cleanaway UK.

industry, providing services to over 65,000 commercial and industrial customers
and 87 municipal clients. It employs almost 2,000 people.

Industrial Services Australia is the leading provider of on-site and off-site
support services, primarily to large companies operating in the coal, metals,
minerals and steel industries. It employs more than 1,200 people.
