Interim report notes

1.      Interim report
    The information relates to the 6 month period from 1 January to 30 June 2012
    The interim report was approved by the Directors on 7th September 2012
    The interim report is unaudited.

2.      Basis of accounting
      a.       The  report has been prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally  Accepted
        Accounting Practice (United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law).  The information
        does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of section 240 of the Companies Act
      b.      These interim financial statements are the financial statements of the Company.
c.      The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention and are in
accordance with applicable accounting standards.
      d.      Investments
           i.      Investments are held as current asset trade investments and are valued at the lower of
                cost and net realisable value.  Foreign denomination loans are translated into sterling at the
                rate of exchange ruling at the balance sheet date.  For those investments listed on a recognised
                market, net realisable value is taken as mid-market price. Where the directors consider the market
                price of a company is likely to irreversibly fall, additional write downs in valuation to below
                mid-market price are made.

           ii.     The net realisable value of certain investments is not readily determinable by reference
                to a quoted market price. The directors have therefore made their own assessment of the net
                realisable value and adjusted the carrying value of the investment where it is considered less
                than cost. This estimate requires estimation techniques, which are reliant upon their experience
                and expertise.

           iii.    These current asset trade investments are held as part of an investment portfolio and no
                investment is made as a media through which the Company carries on its business. Investments which
                may otherwise be classified as Associates, do not therefore fall within this classification for
                accounting purposes.

      e.      The Company will report again for the full year to 31 December 2012.
