Starvest plc : Net asset value update

Starvest plc : Net asset value update

Tuesday 6 December 2011

Net asset value update - 5 December 2011

In preparation for the Company's Annual General Meeting to be held at 3.00 pm today as previously announced, the following is a brief update of the Company's performance and portfolio value as at the close of business on 5 December 2011.

5 December 2011 30  September 2011
Trading portfolio value £4.99m £5.47m
Company asset value net of debt £5.85m £6.62m
Net asset value - fully diluted per share 15.65 pence 17.57 pence
Share price - mid 12.25 pence 13.0 pence
Share price discount to fully diluted net asset value 21.7% 26.0%
Market capitalisation £4.49m £4.77m

All valuations are based on the closing market bid prices or lower Directors' valuation as described in the 2011 annual report.

Values have fallen by 11.6% since 30 September 2011, reflecting the challenging environment in which we live today.  It remains our belief that the troubled state of the world economy will continue to dominate markets for some time to come.  Given the Company's current cash resources, we can afford to wait patiently for a recovery.
