Matthew Bailey Becomes a Non-Executive Director of Boundary Bend Limited

Dear Shareholders

We are pleased to announce that Matthew Bailey has agreed to become a non-executive director of Boundary Bend Limited.  This will increase the total number of non-executive directors to four.

With the continued stellar growth of Cobram Estate and the purchase of the Red Island brand in November   2012, Boundary Bend now has significant sales revenue and asset value in both these brands.  In fact, annual sales through these two brands this financial year will be in excess of $70 million, which will represent approximately 70 % of our total sales revenue.  Therefore, decisions we make about branding strategies and marketing campaigns are now more than ever of material importance to Boundary Bend.

Matthew is well qualified in this regard, being the founding partner and managing director of Junior, a successful advertising agency which employed 75 people with offices in Sydney and Brisbane, prior to being purchased by John Singleton’s STW Group in 2007.

Matthew is well known to Boundary Bend having generously given his time in the past couple of years to assist our team, which included attending our strategic planning session last year.
