  THE CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT


I am pleased to report the results for the year ended 31st May 2009. Despite the generally depressed economic environment it has been another year of progress for the company.


Operations and financing


The current challenging economic environment has provided 1pm with an attractive opportunity to build market share as the availability of finance remains constrained for smaller U.K companies. As a result of this general squeeze on credit, 1pm has managed to increase its portfolio from £4.6 million as at 31st May 2008 to £7.2 million as at 31st May 2009.


During August 2008 1pm successfully completed a secondary placing raising £656,500 before costs which was followed by a further placing completed during May 2009 raising £509,775 before costs. The proceeds have increased the Company's funding facilities enabling it to expand its market share, build the client base and accelerate growth. In addition to increasing its working capital via the placings 1pm has secured £250,000 of debt finance through a loan facility, which has assisted the Company's ability to negotiate further funding lines as appropriate and as such enabled us to post a small profit for the period to 31st May 2009.


Notwithstanding the above the Board considered it prudent to implement a detailed analysis of the business to confirm that it was operationally efficient and to help ensure that no opportunities were over looked. As a result of the review the Board decided to implement increases to the Company's pricing structure which are anticipated to contribute positively to the Company's profit and loss account. In addition our underwriting criteria is constantly under review to ensure we are up to date with all prevailing and changing circumstances and to avoid over exposure in any one area.


Our main target remains the SME sector. 1pm focuses on good quality well founded start up business that, in the Directors opinion, have the potential to become established stable medium sized businesses with the right type of asset finance. Whilst our sector remains competitive experience shows that in times of tightening credit, companies turn to independent flexible asset financiers such as 1pm and consequently margins tend to increase. In addition we are now seeing the benefits of nurturing our relationships with our key introducers resulting in a significant increase in quality referrals and therefore a more stable client base.


The defensive manoeuvre of positioning the Company to insulate it from the effects of the 'credit crunch' has enabled the Company to take positive advantage of the strength of its earlier restructuring. For example, we have been able to effectively manage the sudden and unforeseen exit of one of our funders without sustaining any potential downside.


Operations Director Maria Hampton has assumed day-to-day control of delinquency management bringing to bear her extensive knowledge and expertise in this vital area. Through the tight credit control procedures already in place we have been able to work with and assist our clients who have a genuine payment problem and recover debts from those who are just looking for a reason not to pay. 


In summary the company continues to focus on disciplined underwriting supported by a robust collection policy through these uncertain times.


Results


Group turnover in the year to 31st May 2009 increased by 75% from the level of the previous year to £1.4 million (2008 £0.8 million)


Gross profit rose by 8% to £574,000 (2008 £533,000) despite provisions of £82,000 provided to reflect the current economic environment.


Net Assets have increased to £2.6m (2008: £1.5m).


Staff


Our staff remains our greatest asset and we believe our dedicated team is comparable with the best in the industry. We would like to thank them for their day-to-day contribution, which remains unsurpassed in driving the Company forward.


In June Mr. Ron Russell an investor in the company since floatation joined the board. My colleagues and I are very much looking forward to Ron's input over the coming year.


The board has appointed WH Ireland Ltd as its nominated advisor and broker with immediate effect.


Outlook


The Board believes the key to success going forward is sustainable growth with the catalyst being the new source of funding secured via the placing together with the loan facility which will enable the Board to scale the business thus taking advantage of the tight credit environment.


Finally the Directors remain confident in 1pm's business in terms of strategy and performance. Helped by the new capital raise during May the current year has commenced in line with management expectations and the Directors are confident that it will deliver further progress.

Statutory accounts for the year ended 31 May 2009 will be delivered to shareholders and to the Registrar of Companies in due course and will be available on the Company's website (www.1pm.co.uk). The report of the auditors on the statutory accounts for the year ended 31 May 2009 was unqualified and did not contain a reference to any matters which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying the report and did not contain a statement under section 498 (2) or section 498 (3) of the Companies Act 2006.


Basis of preparation


The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS and with the Companies Act 2006.


The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of the Company and entities controlled by the Company (its subsidiaries) made up to May each year. Control is achieved where the Company has the power to govern the financial and operating policies of an entity so as to obtain benefit from its activities.


All intra-group transactions, balances, income and expenses are eliminated on consolidation.


Leased assets and turnover

Assets leased to customers on finance leases are recognised in the Balance Sheet at the amount of the Company's net investment in the lease. Finance lease income is allocated to accounting periods so as to reflect a constant periodic rate of return on the Company's net investment outstanding in respect of the leases.
