Cullen Increases Stake In Excell

Cullen Increases Investment in Excell Corporation

Auckland, 19 March, 2001 -- Cullen Investments today confirmed that it has increased its investment in infrastructure solutions company, Excell Corporation.

These capital injections, bringing the total invested in Excell over the last two and a half years to some $37.5million, have funded the company's expansion programme.

"Excell has a strong business base which has grown rapidly as local authorities, government agencies and industrial companies continue to contract-out infrastructure services," said Cullen and Excell Director Maurice Kidd. "Over the last two years Excell's revenues have grown from $70 million to over $200 million. And that growth is continuing as customers seek broader and more innovative solutions.

"This expansion has brought with it a requirement for additional capital." Excell Corporation is firmly established as an Australasian infrastructure solutions company. Its purpose is to help clients in both the private and public sectors manage and maintain key assets such as parks, recreational facilities, buildings, roads, water and wastewater networks, and waste management systems.

Its many Australian and New Zealand clients all have sound credit ratings and include local territorial authorities and municipalities, roading authorities, government agencies and commercial and industrial companies, the majority secured on long-term contracts.
