    QUARTER

    REL: 0942 HRS The Warehouse Group Limited

    QUARTER: WHS: Third Quarter Sales Up 9.5%

    1.0 Group Sales (all sales expressed in NZ dollars)

    The Directors of The Warehouse Group Limited report that unaudited sales for
    the thirteen weeks ended 2 May 2004 were $493.5 million. This figure is 9.5
    percent, or $42.7 million, above that for the corresponding period last year
    of $450.8 million. Sales for the thirty-nine weeks ended 2 May 2004 were 12.2
    percent ahead of the same period last year.

    2.0 Operational Results (all sales expressed in local currency)

    2.1 The Warehouse New Zealand

    The Warehouse New Zealand retail stores recorded unaudited sales for the 13
    weeks ended 2 May 2004 of $325 million. This represents a 7.6 percent
    increase in sales over the $302 million achieved for the corresponding period
    last year. Same-store sales increased 5.0 percent in the period.

    In the third quarter The Warehouse extended two stores at Greymouth and
    Napier. As at 2 May 2004, The Warehouse New Zealand retail chain consisted of
    80 stores representing 384,227 square metres of retail space (an increase of
    8.9 percent over the prior comparable period).

    "After achieving good sales growth in February and March, we have experienced
    what we consider to be a weather related slowdown in sales in April.
    Unusually dry conditions and have resulted in slow sales in our winter
    seasonal lines such as heating and apparel. Assuming we get a "normal" winter
    I would expect to see some recovery in sales in the seasonal lines in the
    coming months." said Mr Stephen Tindall, Founder and Acting Managing Director
    of The Warehouse Group Limited.

    In the current quarter, The Warehouse New Zealand plans to open four new
    stores. A replacement store at Westcity (Henderson) opened on 6th May, while
    three stores will open in new locations at Dargaville, Snells Beach and Te
    Kuiti. The Waipapa store (near Kerikeri) that was due to open in July will
    now open in the first quarter of the 2004/05 financial year.

    Weighted average sales per square metre for the twelve months ended 2 May
    2004 were $3,862 (April 2003: $3,872).

    2.2 Warehouse Stationery

    Warehouse Stationery achieved unaudited sales for the thirteen weeks ended 2
    May 2004 of $51.0 million. This represents a 26.2 percent, or $10.6 million,
    increase over the corresponding period last year. Excluding
    Business-to-Business (B2B) sales, same-store sales increased 17.9 percent in
    the period.

    As at 2 May 2004 the Warehouse Stationery retail chain consisted of 41 stores
    representing 54,145 square metres of retail space (an increase of 17.9
    percent over the comparable period last year).

    Warehouse Stationery is currently completing a market trial of a new
    mega-store format launched in December 2003 at Whangarei. No new stores were
    opened during the quarter. Two further new format stores (Upper Hutt and
    Henderson) are planned to open before the end of July 2004.

    Excluding B2B sales, weighted average sales per square metre for the twelve
    months ended 2 May 2004 were $3,620 (April 2003: $3,142).

    2.3 The Warehouse Australia

    The Warehouse Australia achieved unaudited sales for the thirteen weeks ended
    2 May 2004 of A$103.1 million. This represents a 3.6 percent increase in
    sales over the corresponding period last year. In Australian dollar terms,
    same-store sales increased by 0.6 percent.

    "As indicated in February 2004, merchandising issues have meant we will
    continue to have a weak pipeline of product available. This is reflected in
    the modest sales growth for the third quarter and will continue until the end
    of July 2004. We expect that the work now underway to rebuild merchandising
    capability in the Australian business will begin to show results in the first
    quarter of the 2005 financial year," said Stephen Tindall.

    During the quarter, two new format stores were opened in new locations
    (McDowall (QLD) and Lithgow (NSW)). Four old format stores were closed during
    the quarter.

    Australia is still having a negative influence on results...and management is still telling us it will get better.

    Been having slightly happier times lately but now sliding south again. Looking like it will break through $4. A psychological barrier?

    the chart doesnt look good....the price continues to drop and is below a lot of short and long term moving averages.

    I was tempted to buy some in mid July, but decided against it until Australia shows some definite improvements.

    I agree that a break below $4 might seriously be threatened this time.

    Down another 6c (1.4%) today.

    Did I read this correctly? - that Director Peter Inger dumped $440,100 worth of shares over the last week.

    Granted he holds 2.6M more but that's no small change!

    this may sound strange to some, but I'd buy them at over $4.70, but NOT at current levels around $4.00.

    The $4 support seems to be very strong. Buying at that and selling at 4.50 would have been a good strategy lately. A stop loss at about 3.98 would also seem pretty prudent!

    the way I see it, the WHS sp will head upwards on good news...

    Oz turnaround = good news
    Bale out of Oz = Good news
    no news = continuation of the current trading range.

    in the meantime I'd be with you Johnna - though 405c to 410 would be a good enough entry point for me - out 10% later, unless their was some good news in the meantime of course !
    oh, and I'd have to support a 3.95 stop loss too
