Investment Performance

Monday 14 December 2009

Board update  for shareholders  at the  Annual General  Meeting -  14
December 2009
Investment performance
Since the publication of the  2009 annual report, markets have  moved
'sideways' so that:
�          the portfolio valuation at the close of business on Friday
11 December 2009 was £4.38m showing little change since 30  September
2009 when adjusted for investment sales;
�          the Company  value net  of debt shows  little change  from
that at 30 September 2009.
Other matters worthy of note since 30 September 2009 are:

  * The closing share price at 7.25 pence, indicates a discount to
    net asset value of 34%.
  * Investment sales have realised £361,000 with a gross profit of
  * Bank overdraft has been reduced below £400,000.
  * Had the portfolio been valued at mid rather than bid prices, the
    valuation would have been £6.1m equal to 15.46 pence per share
    fully diluted, resulting in a 53% share price discount to net
    asset value.
  * The valuation difference between bid and mid prices of £1.7m
    reflects the wide spread of market quotes and points to the
    relatively low market activity in many of the Company's
  * It remains the Board's intention to reduce and ultimately
    eliminate the bank overdraft.
