                                        ("Quercus" or the "Company")
                           'Quercus Publishing Plc Named Plus Company of the Year'
Quercus Publishing, the independent print and digital books publisher, was named as Plus Company of the Year
at  the  junior stock market's annual awards dinner. The ceremony, which took place on the 12th May 2011  at
the headquarters of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), celebrates the achievements  of
companies listed on PLUS Stock Exchange.

Quercus,  which  listed on PLUS in 2006, recently reported sharp increases in revenue and profits  for  2010
driven by rapid expansion in sales both in the UK and overseas. Its shares have nearly tripled in value over
the past 12 months and its market capitalisation is now approaching GBP 30m.

Receiving  the award, Quercus' co-founder and CEO Mark Smith - who earlier this year was named  Entrepreneur
of  the  Year  - said: 'We've been a listed company for nearly five years now, and I feel that winning  this
award shows that we're no longer a corporate toddler. For Quercus, the best is yet to come!'

The Directors of Quercus Publishing Plc are responsible for the contents of this announcement.
