Cadmus Adds Hanover EFTPOS to Finance Portfolio

Media Release for Immediate Release

Cadmus Adds Hanover EFTPOS Book to its Finance Portfolio

Auckland, 22 March 2006 – Cadmus (NZX:CTL), New Zealand’s leading exporter of payment solutions announced today that it has purchased the EFTPOS finance business of Finance Portfolio Limited and Nationwide Finance Limited who are part of the Hanover Group.

The deal will be operated and managed by Cadmus wholly owned subsidiary Product Rentals Limited (“PRL”) as a separate entity and rental book. This will provide a clear demarcation between the Cadmus rental business and that of those organisations that were using the Hanover facilities.

As part of the deal, PRL will continue to provide services to the dealers and suppliers of EFTPOS products financed by Hanover, and will actively support their initiatives to further grow this aspect of the PRL business.

The deal increases the PRL EFTPOS rental business by more than $10M and now makes Cadmus the largest EFTPOS terminal rental company in the NZ market.

Ian Bailey, Managing Director of Cadmus says that the deal means that the company now has the ability to further increase its market share in the overall EFTPOS terminal market. It also provides a critical mass for access to better funding lines which in turn provides a product rental facility for entry into other more competitive overseas markets.

“The acquisition of Hanover’s EFTPOS finance book is a strategically strong and positive move for Cadmus because it will both add to the positive revenue stream for the business as well as continue to provide a strong cashflow business to allow us to penetrate other international markets with a range of innovative finance options,” says Bailey.

“The rental business is strategically important to us. We can provide our customers with the finance options they prefer and build a profitable recurring revenues base.”

Greg Muir, Chairman of Hanover Group says that the sale of the EFTPOS finance book to Cadmus was about timing and rationalization for the Group.

“Hanover’s focus remains large scale and/or high value relationship lending while the EFTPOS finance book fits better with the supplier of the underlying technology” says Muir.

The Hanover EFTPOS finance book will be seamlessly managed by PRL but will remain as a stand alone, arms length entity in the Cadmus Group delivering both transparency and added synergies for Cadmus’ competitors and dealers alike.

Cadmus will integrate the Hanover EFTPOS finance book into its business by next month and it is expected that this will assist in the generation of further revenue increases for both the year end and over future years.

Cadmus continues to identify other potential business sectors that allow for company growth and an increase in shareholder value.
