Material Events plus financial implications

The Board does not consider that there are any material events giving rise to
financial implications that are not covered in the following sections.

Material transactions plus financial implications

The company has benefited from several company takeovers during the period
including Kuju, Blooms of Bressingham and PM Group with the proceeds increasing
our liquidity. In addition, partial disposals of other investments as detailed
below have been made, this includes significant profits being realised on the
investments in Prezzo and Tanfield. The proceeds have been used to fund the
undermentioned purchases as well as proposed dividend payments and the running
costs of the company.

We have also purchased 1,000,000 of the Company's own shares for cancellation.
At present the company also holds significant cash balances.
