retirement from the Omnia board with effect from Thursday, 15 February

the Company over the years, serving as deputy chairman since March 1994 and

    "Having helped Omnia grow from a fertilizer company into a diversified,     
specialist chemical services provider, I have completed a long and          
    fulfilling journey with the Company. Although I`m retiring as a board       
    member of Omnia, I have the highest level of confidence in its Board of     
    Directors and management team, and I remain as excited as ever about the    
Company`s ability to develop ground-breaking technologies. Omnia has        
    achieved a great deal over the past 54 years, and the Company is in an      
    excellent position to continue its trajectory of growth and innovation."    
    Neville Crosse, Omnia Group Chairman said:                                  
"As one of the founders of Omnia, Willie Marias is one of the true pioneers 
    of our industry. Over the years, Omnia has benefited greatly from Willie`s  
    technical and business expertise. We wish him great success in all his      
    future endeavors as we continue to execute on the plans that he helped put  
in place throughout his distinguished tenure at Omnia."
