Date: Wednesday 19 October 2011

Immediate Release








Trifast plc ("Trifast")


AXA Group - Disaggregation Exemption notification




With effect from 17 October 2011, AXA SA and its subsidiary notifying Group entities have notified the FSA that effective from this date they will be disclosing holdings under the exemptions in Rules 5.4.1, 5.4.2 and 5.4.9 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("DTR"). Therefore, the holdings of the above entities will not be aggregated together or with those of AXA S.A for DTR reporting purposes.


As a consequence, following the disaggregation exemption notified to the FSA under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules, AXA SA and its subsidiary notifying Group entities, acting independently from their parent and from each other, no longer have any reportable holdings in Trifast on a Group aggregated basis.


However, AXA Investment Managers SA has now crossed the 5% threshold and has a holding on a Group disaggregated basis as an independent Group subsidiary of 5,615,800 Ordinary Shares in Trifast, representing 6.59% of the issued share capital of Trifast.
