resolutions relating to the Placing and Open Offer and the proposed

Charles Green, Chairman, commented:

'Kingsbridge has made significant progress in the period since its flotation
on AIM in July 2000 and (Stafford, trading as the Independent Financial
Partnership Limited, a leading independent financial adviser, will further
enhance the Group. The Independent Financial Partnership Limited has strong
growth potential in its chosen niche markets which are complementary to those
of Kingsbridge.

'The offer was well received and those shares not taken up under the Open
Offer have been successfully placed with institutional and other investors at
the offer price.

'The Directors believe that the acquisition will significantly strengthen the
Group's support systems and infrastructure and assist the Company in securing
its position of becoming a leading provider of independent financial advice.

'We anticipate further development of the business through a combination of
organic growth within its existing business and further acquisitions, where
they meet the Group's stringent investment criteria. Current trading is in
line with management expectations.'
