Rexam: Statement Regarding Media Speculation

Further to speculation in the media this morning, the Board of Rexam, the global consumer packaging company and the world's leading beverage can maker, confirms it is in discussions with Owens Illinois Inc. (“OI”) which may, or may not, lead to the acquisition of OI’s plastics division.

An acquisition, if agreed, would only occur on conditions which meet Rexam’s investment returns criteria and is likely to be funded from a combination of its Glass disposal proceeds, debt and an element of equity.

A further announcement will be made in due course if required.
