                         UniVision Engineering Limited
                         ('UniVision' or the 'Company')

              Preliminary Results for the year ended 31 March 2006



I am pleased to report on the results of the Company for the financial year
ended 31 March 2006, our first year as a public company, which has proved to be
an exciting and successful period for Univision.

The Company's Admission to the AIM of the London Stock Exchange in December 2005
has given us the opportunity to access international capital markets and enhance
our growing reputation in the commercial marketplace, particularly in Europe,
where we see significant growth opportunities to develop as an international
company and create greater value for our shareholders.

We have been providing our customers with digital surveillance and integrated
security systems - 'total surveillance video solutions' - in the Pacific region
for a number of years and, as our product range and skills base have grown, we
are increasingly able to deliver to clients on a global basis. The recent
acquisition of a majority shareholding in T-Com Tech. Co. Ltd has added momentum
to our continued growth.

We are confident in the Company's long-term growth potential, especially given
the launch of our new products in the third quarter of financial year 2007. Our
objectives are to further develop our expertise in producing high quality,
reliable and innovative digital video solutions and to consolidate our sales
network throughout the Greater China region in order to respond to growing
demand in the surveillance industry both domestic and international.


During the period under review, turnover increased by 47% to £3.89m (2005:
£2.65m). This growth is attributable to additional sales to existing clients,
the improvement in market conditions and heightened awareness in the areas on
which we focus. The development of new applications has generated additional
revenue streams both from existing and new clients, which is particularly
pleasing. I am delighted that turnover for the period was significantly higher
than our internal forecasts.

Gross profit margin remains the same at 33% (2005: 33%). Distribution costs
increased by 23% to £94,133 (2005: £76,570). Administration expenses, other
operating expenses and non-operating expenses were in line with the Company's
increase in capital investment, marketing and office expansion rising by 124% to
£927,412 (2005: £414,332). The increase is principally due to the cost of
Admission of UniVision's shares to AIM in December 2005.

Net growth in profit before tax after excluding all one-off expenses relating to
the Company's flotation increased by 79% to £0.9 million.

Basic earnings per share have fallen slightly to 0.18p from 0.20p reflecting a
greater number of shares in issue following the flotation together with related
expenses of the float of £392,380, charged to the income statement, which kept
net profits to £510,007 compared to £502,993 in the previous period.


It is forecast that by 2008 total global revenues for digital surveillance video
equipment will amount to approximately US$ 1.2 billion. Industrial and economic
growth in Hong Kong, China and Macau together with global events such as the
Beijing Olympics 2008, Shanghai Expo 2010, all lead to increased construction of
facilities, such as hotels, shopping centres, and convention and exhibition
centres. The continuing demand for digital video products such as Digital Video
Recorders (DVRs), Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and Internet Protocol (IP)
cameras shows no signs of slowing.


Hybrid solutions which connect IP and analogue cameras with CCTV Matrix
Controllers and DVRs became mainstream in 2006. Hybrid solutions provide large
installed base analogue cameras with a gateway to transmit video streams from
networks and the Internet. The Company is looking into many different solutions,

  * Video compression technology MPEG-4 and H.264 enables real-time transmission
    of high quality video over a low bandwidth network. We believe that MPEG-4
    is a leading compression standard which will gradually be replaced by H.264
    in the next two years.

  * Intelligent video analysis software that enables the tracking of suspicious
    objects and checks for rule violation by those objects. This is an
    additional feature to the present video management system for bombs,
    unattended objects and people flow monitoring.

  * Digital Encoder and Decoder (CoDec) with built-in video analysis algorithms
    in the Homeland Security field such as intruder detection, loitering
    detection, left behind objects and trip wire will be the new area of
    interest. We believe this is the transformation of analogue to Digital Video
    Systems. Hong Kong Automatic Traffic Control is the first contract for
    UniVision to deploy its digital CoDec for video transmission over fibre
    network using TCP/IP technology. This technology and project reference helps
    to increase our contract hit rate and increases our turnover and margins for
    new projects of a similar nature.

The Board believes that an open platform to integrate various systems, such as
cameras, Matrix, DVRs, Card Access Systems and Fire Alarm Systems, to provide a
total integrated security solution will be the next major development within the
digital security market. We also believe that UniVision will be among the
pioneers of this movement and we hope to expand our sphere of business

Technologies, Solutions and Products
On the solutions side, an ongoing IT development programme is in place to cater
for the needs of the Company's growing client base in the Asia Pacific region.

The Company is currently developing a new digital server series with PC and
embedded base solutions using our own designed integrated circuit microchips
(with video control, video overlay and multiplexer functions), together with an
open platform central monitoring system which is capable of integrating with
various bands of DVRs, Access Control, Matrix and Fire Alarm Systems with high
level integration. These products will be launched in the third quarter of 2007.
We are currently working on H.264 CoDec with built in video analysis algorithms
which we expect to launch in early financial year 2008.

Acquisitions and Investments
The success of our investment in T-Com Tech. Co. Ltd in the first quarter of
financial year 2007 has reinforced the Company's strategy of acquiring interests
in companies with synergistic and/or strategic value. To this end, the Company
is currently assessing a number of companies in related fields with a view to
making further strategic investments.

Contract Wins
During the reporting period, I am pleased to report that the Company was awarded
a number of high profile projects including the CCTV System for the World Trade
Organization Convention, Hong Kong Airport Skyplaza Car Park CCTV System, Museum
of Coastal Defence CCTV System and the Taipo Sewage Plant CCTV System.

Macau Casinos
As well as growing our business by winning public sector mandates our reputation
has grown in the entertainment and leisure industry and several significant
projects were undertaken in Macau. The key projects took place at the Grand View
Casino, Jai-A-Lai Casino, Emperor Casino, Diamente Casino, and the Louvre
Casino. The Board sees the leisure industry becoming an area of substantial
opportunity over the coming years and the strategy put in place to capitalise on
these developments is bearing fruit.

MTR & Maintenance
Our maintenance contracts are particularly important to the business by
providing strong visibility in our revenue and I am delighted that we have
continued to develop this side of the business. In particular our relationship
with the Mass Transit Railway has proved to be significant with a further 3-year
maintenance contract for the CCTV, Public Address and Passenger Information
Display System (PIDS). This was also extended during the period to include the
important Disneyland Line. In August 2005 UniVision entered into a 5-year
maintenance contract with the Tai Po and North District Traffic Control and two
separate 3-year maintenance contracts were entered into with the Hong Kong
Police for Border Control and Stanley Prison's Correctional Service Department
in December 2005 and March 2006 respectively.


The Company's performance domestically has been strong with new revenue streams
from both the public and private sector. Our London office is expected to be
operational in the fourth quarter of financial year 2007 and will spearhead our
expansion into the UK and European markets whilst our product and application
development programmes continue to enhance and expand well.

The first few months of the current financial year have been very encouraging.
In view of the strong demand for our camera, DVRs, Optical Transceiver and
Matrix products from our existing customers, and the positive sentiment and
exposure towards the digital surveillance products in general, the Board is
confident of making further significant progress in the current year.

Finally, on behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our customers, suppliers
and shareholders for their continued support of UniVision. I would also like to
acknowledge the hard work of the management and all the staff for their
contribution and dedication to the Company.

For the year ended 31 March 2006


The Company is incorporated in Hong Kong as a limited company. The address of
its registered office is 8/F Lever Tech Centre, 69-71 King Yip Street, Kwun
Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The Company has its primary listing on the Alternative Investment Market of the
London Stock Exchange ('AIM').

The Company is engaged in the supply, design, installation and maintenance of
closed circuit television and surveillance systems and the sale of security
system related products.


The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost
convention. In the current year, the Company has applied all International
Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRSs') (which also include the International
Accounting Standards ('IASs') and Interpretations) issued by the International
Accounting Standards Board and International Financial Reporting Interpretations
Committee relevant to its operations and effective for periods beginning on 1
January 2005. The transition from accounting principles generally accepted in
Hong Kong (HKGAAP) to IFRS has not resulted in material impact on the Company's
accounting policies and has no effect on the amounts reported in the income
statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement and statement of changes in equity
for the current or prior years.

This preliminary statement, which has been agreed with the auditors, was
approved by the Board on 26 July, 2006. It is not the Company's statutory
accounts. The statutory accounts for the year ended 31 March 2005 received an
audit report which was unqualified. The statutory accounts for the year ended 31
March 2006 have not yet been approved, audited or filed.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires the
use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to
exercise its judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting

The Company has not applied the new IFRSs in issue at the date of authorisation
of the financial statements but are not yet effective. In addition, the Hong
Kong Companies (Amendment) Ordinance 2005 came into effect on 1 December 2005
and would be first applicable to the Company's financial statements for the
period beginning 1 January 2006. The application of these IFRSs and amendments
are not expected to have material impact on the financial statements of the
