acquisition of all shares and warrants of Mr. Low Bok Tek and certain
shareholders.  Semperit has now secured a stake in Latexx Partners Berhad
("Latexx Partners") of more than 83% on a diluted basis of 274.7 million shares
(post potential exercise of all warrants) and more than 80% based on an
undiluted basis of 222.7 million shares. 

Semperit intends to start the necessary steps for delisting as soon as

"We are extremely pleased that Latexx shareholders have accepted our offer in
such great number and within a short period of time", says Thomas Fahnemann, CEO

month ago by scaling up our expertise in quality, sales and distribution with
one of the major production hubs in the global glove industry.  This strengthens

growth and EBIT margin but enter a new league of top players in the industry."
