Interim Results Statement

for the half year ended 28 February 2007



Chairman's statement



The activities in the first half of the current financial year have once again
been concentrated on the resolution of prior year disposal issues. Progress has
been achieved in this regard and positive cash flow from prior year disposals of
£25,000 has resulted. However, the receipt of the contingent asset of £290,000
relating to the disposal of Benson McGarvey in October 2003 remains ongoing
although progress has been made and the Directors are hopeful that this matter
will be resolved in the near future.



At the Annual General Meeting of the Company held on 27 March 2007, it was
announced that the Investment Strategy of the Company had not been fulfilled
and, accordingly, the shares will continue to be suspended for 6 months as of 2
April 2007 and in the event that the strategy is still unfulfilled, the
Company's listing on AIM will be cancelled on 3 October 2007.



Your board is continuing the process of reviewing investment opportunities and
will communicate with shareholders at the appropriate time.

Non-Executive Chairman

The directors have presented an alternative earnings per share figure 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 (loss)/earnings 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.
