Final Results

                                                                8th August, 2002

                 YOUR SPACE PLC ('Your Space' or 'the Company')

                     Preliminary results for the year ended

                                31st March, 2002

Chairman's statement

Financial Results

The Company incurred a loss before taxation of £612,000.  At the year end, the
Company's net assets were £5.074 million equating to 3.2 pence per share on the
issued share capital at that date.  Cash balances then stood at £1.8 million.

Current Trading

Over the past six months, the Company has expanded significantly by a series of
acquisitions and investments in line with the objectives stated at the
flotation.  In April The Bridge, a 15,000 sq.ft. freehold property at 12-16
Clerkenwell Road, was completed and the first tenants moved during the month.
The launch was well received by the press, shareholders and property
professionals.  The Rt Hon Chris Smith, local MP for Islington Council, attended
the opening and spoke about The Bridge being a quality and ideal environment for
established and start-up businesses in Islington and the City.  The Bridge
provides all the services expected from a Grade A provider, including a 2mb line
dedicated to clients in the building, personalised telephone answering,
conference and catering facilities.

At the end of February 2002 Workspace (North West) Limited, which owns two
freehold business and workspace centres, New Mount Street in the centre of
Manchester and West Midlands House, Willenhall, West Midlands, was acquired for
£1.95 million.  These two properties total 100,000 sq.ft., together with a car
park exceeding one third of an acre, and are 90 per cent. occupied and continue
to generate a good cash flow.  The buildings house a business community
comprising a wide range of tenants, supported by the services offered within the
building.  The Company offers unfurnished offices, studios and workshops in
economically priced units of varying sizes.  We will be seeking to expand our
interest in this field by further acquisitions in the future.

The freehold investment property at 85 Frampton Street, London NW8 is fully let
on a long-term institutional lease.

Your Space also manages the business centre at Shortlands in Hammersmith, where
high levels of occupancy and good service revenues have been achieved.  The
Directors continue to seek further opportunities to expand this management

As a result of these recent acquisitions and the introduction of the management
service, the Company is equipped to service the property needs of a wide range
of companies.  It also has the ability to house even the most sophisticated of
companies in the technology and media sectors.

Future Prospects

The serviced office market is undergoing a period of continuing difficulties.
Oversupply has lead to a highly competitive market and a dramatic reduction of
rental values.  However The Bridge has already achieved an occupancy of 30 per
cent. in the short time since it opened.  The Directors believe that, as the
market recovers, the Company is well placed, with flexible business models, to
meet the ever-changing requirements in the serviced office and workspace
sectors.  They remain confident that demand in the sectors we are targeting will
improve and whilst they face the future with caution the Directors are
optimistic that they will be able to increase the Company's market share over
the coming year.

Board Changes

Since the year end Ian Ilsley has resigned as finance director of the Company
and Chris Tidball has been appointed in his stead.  Chris Tidball was previously
a partner with Andersen and prior to that a director with Lloyds Merchant Bank.

Notes to the financial statements

1.   Loss per share

The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the loss after tax of
£612,000 (2001:  £110,000) and on 148,583,931 (2000: 73,273,149) ordinary shares
being the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.

The calculation of diluted loss per share is based on the basic loss per share
adjusted to allow for the issue of shares on the assumed conversion of all
options and convertible loan stock resulting in 149,041,804 issued ordinary

There is no dilutive effect of warrants due to the fair price of shares during
the period being less than the exercisable price of those warrants.
