Final Results

Caldwell Investments PLC
26 April 2002


for the year ended 31 December 2001

Second half profits helped to produce an operating profit for the year of
£51,741 (2000: loss £273,017).   The final result of a reduced loss for the year
of £65,566 (2000: £676,373) before tax reflected the positive action taken over
the last few years.



Despite another year of difficult trading conditions in Germany, our subsidiary
managed a further  year of positive contribution to the Group's results.

United Kingdom:

This business continued to improve and contributed to the Group's second half

Both businesses have sound and competent management and we look forward to
future progress.


Ninaclip parasols enjoyed a year of increased turnover, with a sales improvement
of about 19%.   We hope for a further growth in turnover in the current year.

Unfortunately, Ninaclip profitability at the beginning of the year was held back
by the rump of the problems we had a year earlier with our previous Taiwanese

Those problems are now behind us and we look forward to a profitable 2002.


In my half year statement last year, I expressed the belief that we would make a
small pre-tax profit in the year under review.   Unfortunately, that hope was
not realised, essentially due to more difficult trading conditions than

The capital reconstruction enabling the company to pay future dividends and
purchase its own shares, which I mentioned in my circular to shareholders of the
7th September 2001 was successfully completed in December.


Following three years of consolidation and the undoubted success of the Ninaclip
parasol, we have decided to re-visit some of the other Ninaclip developments
that we had put on hold.   We hope to be able to make a further announcement
regarding the first new product in the autumn.

With a strong balance sheet, good liquidity, excellent products, quality
customer base,  and the reinstatement of our development programme for new
Ninaclip products, we feel quietly confident for 2002.


2001 was the third year of continued progress and consolidation.   I would like
to thank my colleagues and all Caldwell employees, without whom these
achievements would not have been possible.
