('Jarvis' or the 'Company')


General Meeting Statement / Dividend Payment


At its Annual General Meeting to be held later today, Andrew Grant, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive will make the following statement:


'Although the current environment remains challenging for the financial services industry and we remain subject to the ramifications of extraordinarily low interest rates, I am delighted to report the following:


  • Daily average trade volumes are 20% higher than 2008

  • March 2009 saw the highest monthly trade volume in our history

  • Client cash balances are 25% up on 31 December 2008

  • Total funds under administration are 13% up on 31 December 2008

  • A further commercial contract has been signed since the last announcement of 20 February and the pipeline remains extremely encouraging

  • A new spread-betting service is to be introduced shortly to expand the product range to retail and commercial clients


Given the current strong trading, notwithstanding the interest rate position, the Board has decided to declare a first interim dividend for 2009 of 3p per Ordinary share. This will be payable to holders on the register as at 24 April with an ex-date of 22 April and pay date of 22 May 2009.'
