Further to its announcement on 27 November 2006, that it had conditionally sold its equipment hire and related businesses to PES Finance Limited, listed hire company Hirequip New Zealand Limited today announced that the purchaser has confirmed satisfaction of three of the five conditions under the agreement for sale and purchase.

The satisfied conditions are:
* the consent of the New Zealand Overseas Investment Office

The two remaining conditions are:
* Hirequip shareholder approval by way of an ordinary resolution at the meeting to be held next Monday, 18 December 2006; and
* No event occurring which would entitle the financiers of the purchaser to withhold finance to fund the settlement of the purchase (a "no material adverse change" type clause will be included within the purchaser's financing documents in accordance with common market practice).
