response, the resolution to change the name from Web Shareshop (Holdings) plc to

In our previous announcements we had indicated that by mid August we would issue
a Chairman's update as at 31 July to be followed by our annual report in late
September prior to an AGM at the end of October. So as to assist in the
Company's promotion, we have decided to bring forward the announcement of our
year end results and the publication of our annual report. Our intended
timetable now is to:
• announce our results to AIM on 25 August;
• issue the annual report and financial statements by 9 September; and
• hold the annual general meeting at 3.00 pm on Thursday 7 October 2004 in
the Euston Square, London office of Grant Thornton.
I am pleased to report that the Company recently raised £597,250 of new capital
which is being committed to finance new and exciting investment opportunities
now before us.
We will resume our programme of regular updates in the Autumn.
