Move into Malaysian capital further strengthens international presence

Empresaria Group plc (EMR), the AIM-quoted international staffing group, has
further strengthened its presence in Asia with the addition of a new operation
in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia.

Monroe Consulting Group Malaysia Sdn Bhd, led by a management team with
extensive experience in the recruitment market for Malaysia, will focus on
permanent and temporary staffing and human resources outsourcing across a range
of sectors including FMCG, banking and finance, IT and telecommunications,
retail, property development and the oil and gas industry.

Empresaria Chief Executive Miles Hunt said: 'With this move, we are now
operating in more than a dozen countries in Europe, Asia, Australasia and North
America. Our continued expansion reflects our core strategy of establishing an
international spread of operations in both the permanent and temporary staffing
sectors to gain access to high growth markets and economies, as well as to
manage industry cyclicality within individual geographical markets.'

Empresaria arrived on AIM in November 2004 and last September reported record
interim profits, with international operations contributing more than 20% of
gross profit. The group operates through trading subsidiaries where founder
managers and key staff hold significant stakes, with central group functions
focused on financial management and group development.
