Investment Performance

14 October 2009

Chairman's update for shareholders - 14 October 2009
Investment performance
I am pleased to report an 11% increase in your Company's asset  value
net of  debt in  the quarter  to 30  September 2009  to make  an  18%
increase for  the year  since the  low point  of 30  September  2008;
conditions in our  chosen investment field  have stabilised a  little
after the shocks of the latter half of 2008.
A year ago, we took a long hard look at the values attributed to  our
investment portfolio as  a result  of which  we wrote  down the  book
values of many, but not all, of our investments by a total of £3.5m.
We  believed  this   to  be  prudent   and  subsequent  events   have
demonstrated this to be so. We expect to announce our audited results
for the year to 30 September 2009, by the end of October when we will
comment in greater detail.

The net asset values at 30 September  2008 and 2009 are based on  bid
prices or the  Directors' valuation,  if lower; the  values at  other
dates are at bid prices.
The Board  continues to  believe  that it  has within  its  portfolio
investments with considerable potential and  is hoping for an  upturn
during 2010, possibly earlier for some.
