Interim Results

Caldwell Investments PLC
24 November 2006

                              CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT
                                 INTERIM REPORT
                               24TH NOVEMBER 2006

Trading during the first half shows a pre-tax loss of £268,986 (H1 2005
£358,017). This loss includes amortisation and depreciation of £100,957 (H1 2005
£110,828) in accordance with the Group's policy of writing down assets over a
ten year period and continued costs of investment in the NinaSun project.

Turnover was £3,264,043 (H1 2005 £2,986,178), an increase of 9%.

Operational review and current trading

NinaSun outdoor furniture

In February 2006 Neil Gow was appointed to the Board to lead the NinaSun
project. He was instrumental in generating initial sales of NinaSun garden
furniture to garden centres across the UK, however the size and volume of orders
were less than we had hoped and Neil left the Group on 2nd October 2006. His
departure has provided us with the opportunity to reconsider our NinaSun sales
strategy and this is currently under review.

NinaClip baby buggy parasols

Parasol and Minisol sales were down slightly against the same period last year
due to the poorer than expected weather in the mid-summer period. Performance
for the full year will therefore be less strong than had been anticipated at the
time of our Annual General Meeting.

Underwear business

The Group's underwear businesses continue to be steady cash generators,
particularly in the German market, and we expect this trend to continue
throughout the remainder of the current financial year.


It is the Group's strategy to continue to review all its operations in order to
maximise the return to all its stakeholders.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our employees, whose hard
work and dedication is so important to the continued progress of the Group.

Notes to the Interim Report

1.  The interim financial information for the six months ended 31 August
    2006 and 31 August 2005 is unaudited but has been prepared on the basis
    of accounting policies consistent with those set out in the audited
    accounts for the period ended 28 February 2006. Those accounts were
    audited, carried an unqualified Auditors Report and have been filed
    with the Registrar of Companies. The information set out in this
    interim report does not constitute statutory accounts within the
    meaning of the Companies Act.

2.  The calculation of basic and diluted earnings per shared is based on
    the loss for the period of £286,686 (2005: loss £368,017) and a
    weighted average number of ordinary shares of 19,911,956 (2005:
