Plastics Capital Plc (AIM;PLA), a fast-growing acquisitive plastics products
manufacturer focused on proprietary products for niche markets, is pleased to

the consideration will be deferred for 2 years.

Palagan is a long established producer of high performance film packaging
solutions. Palagan customises its products to between 4,000 and 5,000 different

and accounts for Palagan's marketplace success.

increased at a rate of 6.4% p.a. over the last seven years. In the financial
year to 30 October 2007, Palagan had audited EBITDA of £1.07m - these accounts
included certain costs that would not be continuing under Plastics Capital's
ownership. Net assets acquired amount to £3.5m at completion. Palagan employs 40
staff and has a customer base of 500, with the largest customer accounting for
4.5% of sales.
