Investment performance
At 30 September 2010 the NAV plus cumulative dividends of the Fund was 77.7p,
which compares to 78.1p at 31 July 2010, showing a slight decrease due to
standard running costs of the Fund.

In the unquoted portfolio, we have continued to focus on monitoring existing
portfolio companies, alongside giving them support with advice and funding.
During the period under review, further small investments have been made in
Lilestone and Perfect Pizza. A repayment of £900,000 has been made to the Fund
of the loan note originally invested in Vulcan Services 1 Limited.

In the AIM portfolio, opportunities to invest have been limited during the
period and therefore no new investments were made. However, the Fund disposed of
its holding in Pressure Technologies in August 2010, realising a small gain of
£3,600 in the period.

The total value of the investment portfolio at 30 September 2010 was £19.1
million. By value, 77.0% of the Company's net assets are in unquoted
investments, 3.8% in AIM-quoted investments and 19.2% of the Company's net
assets are currently in cash or cash equivalents.
