PRELIMINARY RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2005


Chairman's Statement

The executive director's activities have again been concentrated on the ongoing
pursuit of prior year disposal issues and a number of administrative matters.

Total administrative expenses incurred in the year of £66,000 (2004: £164,000)
have now been reduced to the bare minimum necessary to operate a public company.
It is anticipated that the future receipt of monies from prior year disposals
will finance the ongoing administrative expenses of the Group.

It remains a transitional period for the Group. The executive directors continue
to pursue certain issues in order to maximize the financial worth of the Group.
Their success in this endeavour will shape the strategy of the Group in the
future.

The Investment Strategy of the Company in the context of the current AIM rules
is as follows:

The Directors will be actively seeking to invest in a company or business that
is well positioned in a business sector with above average growth potential.
The chosen business sector is likely to be in consumer services. The Directors
have extensive experience of acquiring and managing both public and private
companies and this experience will be used to carry out due diligence,
supplemented by investigating accountants as appropriate, and to evaluate
proposed investments.

A resolution to approve the Investment Strategy will be put to shareholders at
the forthcoming Annual General Meeting.

The directors have presented alternative earnings per share figures to give a
better indication of the long-term results of the business. FRS14 requires
presentation of diluted earnings per share when a company could be called upon
to issue shares that would decrease net profit or increase net loss per share.
Since it seems inappropriate to assume that option and warrant holders would act
irrationally, no adjustment has been made to diluted earnings/(loss) per share
for out-of-the-money share options and warrants. As there is no potential
dilution, the basic and diluted  (loss)/earnings per share figures are the same.
