Final Results

Caldwell Investments PLC
25 April 2003

                              Chairman's statement

Positive action taken over the last few years has finally started to show
through. The result for the year is a small pre-tax profit of £72,084 (2001:
loss £65,566).



Despite continuing difficult trading conditions in Germany our Nissel subsidiary
managed a further year of improvement and once again made a positive
contribution to the Group's result.

United Kingdom

Underwear in the UK continues to be a highly competitive activity. We have
therefore taken the decision to focus totally on the importing side of our
business. Regrettably, this will lead to the closure of our manufacturing
activity in Bolton at the end of June 2003. Following the closure, we intend to
relocate to premises more appropriate to an importing, sales and distribution
business. There will be some small redundancy and relocation costs. The above
action will strengthen our business and enable us to give more competitive
prices to our customers.



The 2002 summer season turned out to be less buoyant than we had hoped. A wet
summer throughout Europe affected our sales. However, the Ninaclip parasols made
a positive contribution to Group profits.

Sun canopies

Since the successful showing of the NinaSun suncanopy at the SPOGA show in
Cologne, much time, effort and money has been spent on it's development.

We hope to commence commercial trials at the end of June 2003 and subject to
these being successful, delivery to customers will start November/December 2003.


2002 was a further year of improvement. Germany did well, especially against an
exceptionally poor economic background.

The underwear business in the UK was stable and Nina Parasols had a profitable,
if a somewhat disappointing year.

The NinaSun canopy project is progressing well but is taking longer than we had
hoped, postponing the time when we will reap the benefits of the time, effort
and money invested.


The traditional activities of the Group produced a small pre-tax profit in 2002,
and we hope to improve on this performance in the coming year.

The NinaSun canopy will not make any material contribution to Group profits in
2003, but we are hoping for a significant contribution in 2004.

With highly competent executives, motivated employees, excellent products,
quality customer base and strong balance sheet, we look forward to 2003 with
quiet confidence.


2002 was the fourth year of continued progress. I would like to thank my
colleagues and all Caldwell employees, without whom these achievements would not
have been possible.

This preliminary statement of annual results which covers the year to 31
December 2002 has been agreed by the Group's auditors and is consistent with the
full financial statements.

The abridged preliminary Group accounts for the year ended 31 December 2002 are
not statutory accounts and have been extracted from the full statutory accounts
for the year ended 31 December 2002. The full statutory accounts for the year on
which the auditor's report is unqualified will be delivered to the Registrar of
Companies in due course.

The comparative figures for the year to 31 December 2001 are abridged from the
accounts for that year and do not constitute full accounts within the meaning of
Section 240 of the Companies Act 1985 (as amended). Statutory accounts for that
year on which the auditors gave an unqualified opinion have been delivered to
the Registrar of Companies.


The calculation of basic earnings/(loss) per share is based on earnings (losses)
attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of
shares in issue during the year. The calculation of diluted earnings per share
is based on the basic earnings/(loss) per share adjusted to allow for the
assumed conversion of all dilutive options.


The annual report will be mailed to shareholders on or around 2 May 2003. Copies
will be available after that date from: The Secretary, Caldwell Investments
P.L.C., 647 Roundhay Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS8 4BA.


The Annual General Meeting will be held at the registered office, 647 Roundhay
Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS8 4BA on Friday 30 May 2003 at 9 a.m.
