Net Asset Backing Update

New Zealand Exchange Limited 
P.O. Box 2959 
Wellington

8 April 2011

Dear Sir, 

Widespread Portfolios Net Asset Backing   

We wish to advise that the unaudited net asset backing per Widespread Portfolios share, as at 8 a.m. today is 61.8 cents.

Effect of Proposed Restructure

As previously advised, the re-arrangement of assets held by Widespread Portfolios and associate company Widespread Energy has, combined with the independently supported revaluation of the Chatham Rise project, had a marked beneficial effect on the value of Widespread Energy shares and options. This has translated into a significant increase in the asset backing of Widespread Portfolios.

Net asset data is also available on our website (www.widespread.co.nz) and is updated daily. For more information on the Chatham Rise project see www.rockphosphate.co.nz.

For and on behalf of the Board,

Chris D Castle
