Approach Rejected

Foster's Group Limited (Foster's) announces that it has received an unsolicited, incomplete, non-binding and conditional proposal from SABMiller plc to acquire all of the shares in Foster's via a scheme of arrangement at a price of $4.90 per share in cash.

The Board of Foster's believes that the proposal significantly undervalues the company in the context of a change of control and, as such, it does not intend to take any further action in relation to it.

Foster's is being advised by Goldman Sachs, Gresham and Allens Arthur Robinson.
