600 Group PLC ("600 Group" or the " Company")

Statement re. Possible Offer

Further to the previous announcements regarding the approach by Qingdao D&D Investment Group Co. that may or may not lead to a cash offer being made for the Company, the Board of 600 Group can confirm that discussions are on-going and that in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), the Takeover Panel has consented to a further extension of the relevant deadline to allow those discussions to progress. The new deadline either to announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer (in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies) is 5.00 pm on 4 December 2013. The revised deadline will only be extended, if requested, with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code.

This announcement is not an announcement of a firm intention to make an offer under Rule 2.7 of the Code and there can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms on which any offer will be made.

A further announcement will be made in due course.
