provider of Professional Business Services and Stock & Inventory Systems &
Services to the leisure, retail and care markets, is pleased to announce that
the Group has signed its first franchise agreement for Orridge covering

the Group's comprehensive suite of technology and embedded systems. Together,
our retailers benefit from a uniform pan-European service provided onsite by
the relevant local nationals. The Board anticipates that this first franchise
agreement will make an immediate contribution to Group earnings.
