Interim Results

Caldwell Investments PLC
20 September 2004


First half trading shows an improved pre-tax profit of £157,341 (2003: £11,149).
Turnover was down reflecting our policy of declining to accept  orders at
unsatisfactory margin.


Our traditional underwear business traded steadily under difficult conditions,
especially in Germany.   As always, second half profitability is heavily
dependent on the weather.   This will be even more so this year, as  underlying
conditions for this industry are not encouraging.


An early Summer helped to achieve improved sales over last year even though the
sunny weather  was over before the end of June.

The business continues to grow and we are optimistic for its prospects


NinaSun canopy has had a busy half year.

March      U.S.A. Patents granted.  This in addition to the 58
           NinaSun/Ninaclip Patents, Trade Marks and Registered
           Designs already granted in relevant countries.

           Marriott Hotel in Sao Paulo place a pre-commercial
           production order for NinaSun canopies.

June       The Majestic Hotel in Cannes, a member of the 'Leading
           Hotels of the World Group', place a pre-commercial production order
           for NinaSun canopies.

July       Product development and supply agreement for wooden
           outdoor/leisure furniture established with  Chinese Company.

           A non-exclusive American distributor  appointed.

August     The NinaSun manufacturing operation commissioned and
           production started.

September  The NinaSun canopy was shown at SPOGA for the third year.
           Following the exhibition Caldwell Investments PLC
           announced that agreement had been reached that, commencing season
           2005, Balliu Export S.A. would market the NinaSun canopy for  
           Balliu and Grosfillex resin sunloungers in over 50 countries through 
           their existing international distributor network

           Balliu have been the world's premier producer of resin loungers for 
           over 30 years, manufacturing a prestige product of the highest 
           quality.   Their loungers are to be found internationally on many 
           five star beaches, hotels, cruise ships, golf courses and 
           entertainment complexes.

In November, the NinaSun canopy for resin loungers, will be launched in New York
at the Motel/Hotel Show.


NinaSun will run a co-ordinated international marketing campaign in Spring 2005
in consumer and trade press in order to bring the NinaSun canopy to the notice
of a wider public.


As mentioned at the beginning of my statement, the underwear business continues
to 'suffer from difficult trading conditions' and is unlikely to do as well in
the second half as it did last year.

The NinaSun canopy continues to show great promise and although it will make
scant contribution to turnover and profits in the current trading period, I have
every confidence it will start to make material contributions next year.

                                                             20th September 2004
