                             FINAL RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MAY 2008

Team (Impression) Holdings PLC ("Team" or "the Company")

Results for Financial year (12 months) to 31st May 2008

The Board of Team (Impression) Holdings PLC is pleased to announce its results for year ending 31st
May 2008, its first full year report as a PLUS-quoted company. Our wholly owned subsidiary Team
Impression Limited has performed well, delivering top line sales growth and much better than trade
average net profit.

The Directors consider that a period of consolidation is advisable due to the uncertainties in the
economy. However they believe that realistic opportunities to acquire right "fit" businesses offering
value for Team and its shareholders will be explored as and when they arise.

Principal Activities and Business Review

The principal activities of the Company during the period continued to be commercial litho, digital
and large format printing.

The Board is pleased with the Company's performance, achieving budgeted top line growth of approx 8.5%
and producing a percentage net profit, the envy of most of the commercial print sector, against a back
drop of challenging conditions within the general print market. However our net profit was impaired
from a one off repair cost to our Komori 6 colour press (currently the subject of an insurance claim),
increased (first year) depreciation on recent capital expenditure and a increased provision for bad

We will continue to focus on the types and mix of work and products that deliver high added value. To
aid this we have continued to invest in equipment and operations which allow us to offer a vertical
print offering to our customers, thus reducing the need for outwork and the associated transport,
control, cost and administration issues.

We continue to explore new territories and are experiencing buoyant trading from our London based
design clients.

The Company won the prestigious title of "Printer of the Year" as voted for by the readers of
advertising/marketing trade publication the "DRUM".

As reported at our interim stage, during this period the Company invested in new capital equipment to
bolster our digital departments and introduced a HP Indigo 5500 press and a FUJI Acuity large format
flat bed press enabling us to print on a much wider range and size of substrates. The Directors feel
this move further enhances our offering and gives further added value products to our ever increasing
client base.

With the uncertainties in the economy the Directors have taken the view that in the current financial
year they look to consolidate, significantly reduce capital expenditure and reduce borrowings. Among
other things they look forward to ending a number of Finance and HP agreements on plant & equipment,
thus leaving these un-encumbered and not requiring replacement.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff who have
continued to work tirelessly during the course of the financial year.
