                                  SABMILLER plc

                        Harbin Statement Clarification


London: 24 May 2004

SABMiller plc records that it has been required by the Hong Kong Securities and
Futures Commission to publish the following clarificatory announcement in a
newspaper in Hong Kong:

Mr. Graham Mackay, Chief Executive Officer of SABMiller plc, said in recent
press interviews that the offer made by SABMiller plc for the outstanding shares
in Harbin Brewery Group Limited (the 'Offer') was a 'full and fair price' (the '
Statement').  By this, Mr. Mackay meant that the Offer represents outstanding
value for Harbin Brewery Group Limited shareholders and not that it should be
taken as an indication of the future intentions of SABMiller plc.

In the clarificatory announcement the directors of SABMiller plc stated that
they wished to clarify that the Statement did not represent a 'no increase
statement' in relation to the Offer as defined under the relevant rule of the
Hong Kong Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the 'Takeovers Code').
