                        LEGENDARY INVESTMENTS PLC (LEG)

              Preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2006



In the year under review, your Company continued to assess investments, both on
and off-market, where the investee companies might benefit from your Company's
hands-on investment process in which the investee companies are assisted in
certain areas such as product development and marketing. Despite reviewing
several opportunities, no suitable new investments were found.

In line with the company's policy of utilising available funds, certain medium
term investments had been made in listed securities. During the year under
review, several of these investments were realised at a loss due to the
non-occurrence of certain anticipated corporate events. In total, these
investments resulted in net losses of £452,000. This compares with net losses on
investments of £945,000 for the previous year.

Administrative expenses amounted to £58,000. This compares with administrative
expenses of £149,000 for the previous year. The fall in administrative expenses
was due to the abatement and write back of certain administrative expenses.

In total net losses for the year under review amounted to £510,000. This
compares with a net loss of £1,094,000 for the previous year.

The Company has adopted FRS 26 ('Financial Instruments - recognition and
measurement') in the year which has required changes to the descriptions and
classifications of the investments traded by the Company. The impact of this has
been to restate headings within the profit and loss account, balance sheet, cash
flow statement and related notes. There has been no impact on the loss, net
assets/liabilities, or cash flows for either the current or prior years as a
result of the adoption of this standard.


The last remaining investments were liquidated following the year end. The
Company continues to review further investments. The losses in the year under
review have resulted in a deficit in the shareholders' funds. The Board is
exploring various options to address this issue, including strengthening the
balance sheet. In addition an extraordinary general meeting will be convened to
discuss the deficit in the shareholders' funds.

Accounting convention

The accounts have been prepared in accordance with applicable
accounting standards and under the historical cost convention, modified by the
revaluation of investments.

Tangible fixed assets and depreciation

Tangible fixed assets are stated at cost less depreciation. Depreciation is
provided at rates calculated to write off the cost less the estimated residual
value of each asset over its expected useful life, as follows:

Office equipment, furniture and fittings           3 - 4 years

Impairment of asset values

Where asset values are impaired, they are written down to their economic value
to the business.

Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised on the company's
balance sheet when the company has become a party to the contractual provisions
of the instrument.

All investments are initially recognised at cost, being the fair value of the
consideration given and including acquisition charges associated with the

After initial recognition, investments that are classified as held for trading
are measured at fair value. Gains or losses on investments held for trading are
recognised in income.

For investments that are actively traded in organised financial markets, fair
value is determined by reference to Stock Exchange quoted market bid and offer
prices at the close of business on the balance sheet date.  Unlisted investments
have been based on cost less impairment as there is insufficient information to
enable a valuation to be performed.

Derivative financial instruments

The company's activities expose it primarily to market risk.  The company uses
derivatives to minimise the initial monetary investment required.

Derivative financial instruments are carried at fair market value and resultant
profit and losses are included in the profit and loss account. Assets or
liabilities resulting from gains or losses on open positions are reported as
derivative financial assets or liabilities. Fair value is determined by
reference to third party market values. The company does not use derivative
financial instruments for hedge accounting purposes.

Deferred taxation

Deferred tax is recognised in respect of differences between the Company's
taxable profits and its results as stated in the financial statements that have
originated but not reversed at the balance sheet date.

Deferred tax assets are only recognised where there is an expectation that they
will result in a reduction in corporation tax payments in the foreseeable

Deferred tax is measured at the average tax rates that are expected to apply in
the periods in which timing differences are expected to reverse, based on tax
rates and laws that have been enacted or substantially enacted by the balance
sheet date.  Deferred tax is measured on a non-discounted basis.

Foreign currency translation

Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated
into sterling at the rates of exchange ruling at the accounting date.
Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at the rate ruling at the date
of the transaction. All differences are taken to profit and loss account.

Prior period adjustment

The company has adopted FRS26 ('Financial Instruments - recognition and
measurement') in the year.  As a result, the 2005 figures have been restated to
reflect the revised classification of the trading activities of the company.
There has been no impact on loss for the year, net (liabilities)/assets, or
(decrease)/increase in cash for either the current or prior years.

Going concern

The company incurred a net loss of £510,000 in the year and the liabilities at
31 March 2006 exceeded assets by £40,000. The directors have carried out cost
projections for the company and compared these with the availability of finance
from the director's loan facility.  Based on this, the Directors have formed a
judgement, at the time of approving the accounts, that there is a reasonable
expectation that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational
existence for the foreseeable future. For this reason the Directors continue to
adopt the going concern basis in preparing the accounts.

4              TAXATION (continued)

The reported losses include losses on fixed asset investments which are only
relievable against future capital profits.

As at 31 March 2006 the Company had corporation tax revenue losses of
approximately £5.9 million (2005: £5.4m) available to carry forward against
future income. No deferred tax asset is recognised in respect of these losses
due to the uncertainty as to the utilisation of the losses in the foreseeable

Future tax charges will be dependent on the split of profits for tax purposes as
between revenue and capital items, and the utilisation of losses incurred to
                                                                                      2006             2005

The share options and warrants do not give rise to any dilution and therefore
