                                 INTERIM REPORT

                            FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED

                                 30TH JUNE 2005

                            Company Number: 3213174

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT



The operating status of the Company has remained unchanged since my last report
and the Directors have continued to seek out a suitable transaction to utilise
the Company's status as a listed shell.



At the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held on 2 June 2005, shareholders
gave their full support to the Board's proposals to reorganize and consolidate
the Company's capital structure; accordingly, all of the relevant proposals were
duly passed: the Board's future strategy was also fully affirmed at that
meeting. In that latter regard, I believe that it will be useful to restate the
main features of the newly approved strategy which, inter alia, stated:



•         The Company is seeking to invest in a company (or companies) whose
business is in the Natural Resources, Financial or Healthcare sectors. Investee
companies are likely to be located in the United Kingdom, the Eurozone,
Australasia and/or North America. There is a clear preference to find a single
primary investment in one of the sectors outlined above.



•         The Company's Directors and its principal shareholders are committed
to this strategy and will procure such capital or other monetary support to
ensure that the Company is able to meet its obligations for at least the
remainder of the current financial year. The Company also intends to carry out a
Placing in due course to further underpin its ability to conduct relevant due
diligence on promising potential acquisitions.



Financial Statements



The attached unaudited Financial Statements again demonstrate that all operating
activities of the Company have ceased and that the Company no longer holds any
consolidatable interests or assets for sale. The Profit and Loss account shows
that operating costs have been maintained at a low level, in which regard the
continuing support of certain key shareholders is fully acknowledged.



Showing a de minimis net asset position at the half year, the Company's Balance
Sheet amply demonstrates the need for the Board to procure new capital to
address the execution of the approved business strategy and, to that end, as
stated in my full year's report, all necessary steps will be taken to secure
sufficient funding to meet the needs of the Company for the remainder of this
financial year.



Future Prospects



While there can be no guarantee of success, in consideration of the recently
approved capital restructuring,  I am now more confident of being able to
conclude a funding. If successful, this will permit relevant Due Diligence work
to be instructed and give the Company an improved opportunity to introduce a new
business proposition.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS TO 30TH JUNE 2005



1.   The interim financial statements for the six months ended 30th June 2005
are unaudited and were approved by the directors on 8 July 2005. The financial
information set out above does not constitute statutory accounts within the
meaning of Section 240 of the Companies Act 1985. The information given as
comparative figures for the year ended 31st December 2004 was extracted from the
Company's audited statutory accounts for that financial year.



2.      ACCOUNTING POLICIES



The principal accounting policies of the Company have remained unchanged from
those set out in the Company's 2004 accounts.



Certain of the Company's leading shareholders have agreed to underpin the
Company's limited cash requirements by the provision of essential support
services. Accordingly, the financial statements have been prepared on a going
concern basis.

5.   EARNINGS PER SHARE



      The calculation of earnings per ordinary share is based on losses of
£14,497 and on the weighted average number of shares in issue during the period
of 3,277,323 ordinary 0.5p shares. The diluted earnings per share have been
presented on the same basis as the basic earnings per share as the issue of all
potential ordinary shares would be anti-dilutive.



6.   Copies of the interim report are available to the public free of charge
from the Company at 18 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5LU during normal office hours,
Saturdays and Sundays excepted, for 14 days from today.
