                                              PRIVATE PLACING


The  Board  of Directors of Datum International Limited is pleased to announce that it has raised  £230,500
before expenses of approximately £13,000 from a private placing with the issue of 9,220,000 ordinary shares
at  a  price  of 2.5p per share (the "Placing"). These shares were allotted to shareholders on  16th  April
2009. Each new ordinary share will rank pari passu with all the existing ordinary shares.

In  addition  Jonathan  Wearing, Chairman, converted a loan made to the company  of  £22,000  into  880,000
ordinary  shares  and  is now interested in 2,802,400 ordinary shares representing 9.33%  of  the  enlarged
issued  share  capital  and Les Paul, CEO, converted a loan made to the company of £26,056  into  1,042,240
ordinary  shares  and is now interested in 6,992,140 ordinary shares representing 23.27%  of  the  enlarged
issued  share  capital.  Following the Placing the Directors own 10,465,540 ordinary  shares,  representing
34.83% of the enlarged issued share capital.

The proceeds of the Placing will be used to finance the further growth and development of the business.  As
a result of the Placing and the two converted loans, there are now 30,045,590 ordinary shares of 1p each in
issue. No ordinary shares are held in treasury. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company
is 30,045,590.

The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
