Correction to Interim Management Statement of 16 September 2009

Northgate plc  (the 'Company'), the UK and Spain's leading specialist in light commercial vehicle hire, issues a correction to the Company's Interim Management Statement issued on 16 September 2009.

The unaudited net debt figure as at 31 August 2009 was reduced by £173m since 30 April 2009, to £713m, not £205m to £681m as incorrectly stated in the announcement. Using 30 April 2009 exchange rates the reduction would have been £165m.

The discrepancy is due to an internal administrative error and does not affect the Company's ability to meet its redemption obligations, banking covenants, forecast of year end net debt position or its current trading position.
