Material events

Following a ruling by the European Court of Justice, HM Revenue and Customs has
recently accepted that VAT will no longer be charged on investment management
fees.  For the Company it may also be possible to recover some of the VAT paid
in the past on management fees. The quantum of any such repayment is subject to
a number of legal and procedural considerations, and it may take some time for
confirmation of entitlement to any refunds and the timing of any repayments to
be determined.  However, the Company has been advised that the possible value
for ordinary shareholders represented by these refunds might amount to in excess
of 1p per ordinary share.

At present, it is unlikely that it will be possible to reach a resolution of
this matter prior to the winding up of the Company on 29th February 2008 and,
accordingly, such resolution will become the responsibility of the liquidators.
