Interim Results

Greenchip Investments  PLC
28 September 2001


GREENCHIP INVESTMENTS PLC

Interim Statement


The Company announces an interim loss of £502,103 for the six months ending 30
June 2001 (18 months to 31 December 2000 £3,090,101) and the loss per share
was 1.73p (18 months to 31 December 2000 loss of 12.15p). The Board has not
recommended the payment of an interim dividend.

In the last Annual Accounts, the company announced that the Board had decided
to fundamentally redress company strategy and significantly reduce its cost
base.  By the end of June 2001, a number of directors had left the company and
the overhead costs of the company had been reduced considerably.

The remaining directors have been examining opportunities with a view to
restoring value for Greenchip shareholders.

In this regard, the Company is currently progressing Reverse Takeover
negotiations with Programmable Life Inc, as previously announced. Further
information will be issued in due course.



By order of the board

Chief Executive Officer

 REVIEW OPINION

We expect to report on the interim financial information as follows:-


INDEPENDENT REVIEW REPORT TO GREENCHIP INVESTMENTS PLC


Introduction

We have been instructed by the company to review the financial information set
out on pages 3 to 6 and we have read the other information contained in the
interim report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements
or material inconsistencies with the financial information.


Directors' Responsibilities

The interim report, including financial information contained therein, is the
responsibility of and has been approved by the directors.  The directors
confirm that  the accounting policies and presentation applied to the interim
figures are consistent with those applied in preparing the preceding annual
accounts except where any changes, and the reasons for them, are disclosed.



Review Work Performed

We  conducted our review in accordance with guidance contained in Bulletin
1999/4 'Review of Interim Financial Information' issued by the Auditing
Practices Board. A review consists principally of making enquiries of
management and applying analytical procedures to the financial information and
underlying financial data and, based thereon, assessing whether the accounting
policies and presentation have been consistently applied unless otherwise
disclosed.  A review excludes audit procedures such as tests of controls and
verification of assets, liabilities and transactions.  It is substantially
less in scope than an audit performed in accordance with Auditing Standards
and therefore provides a lower level of assurance than an audit.  Accordingly,
we do not express an audit opinion on the financial information.



Review Conclusion

On the basis of our review we are not aware of any material modifications that
should be made to the financial information as presented for the six months
ended 30 JUNE 2001.
