LEGENDARY INVESTMENTS PLC (the "Company")


INTERIM RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2009



CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S STATEMENT


In the first half of the year under reviewyour Company made net profits on investments of £7,000. This related primarily to disposals of old investments. The disposals were made in order to clear the way for future investments.


Other administrative expenses were £65,000, broadly in line with the same period last year (£59,000). As the Company is still awaiting information from the administrators of Echelon Wealth Management Ltd ("Echelon")it has not provided further for the losses incurred as a result of Echelon going into administration.


A share option charge of £123,000 was incurred in respect of options granted in the periodThe options vest immediately on issue and therefore the charge has all been recognised in this period. This is a non-cash item and relates to the accounting treatment required to reflect the costs of options and warrants. 


Overall, net loss for the first half of the year under consideration was £181,000. Excluding the option charge net loss for the first half would have been £58,000.

Notes to the Interim Results

 

1.            Accounting Policies

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


Prior period adjustmentFollowing the administration of one of the company's brokers during the year ended 31 March 2009, it became apparent that amounts which were confirmed as held as cash were not held in segregated accounts and therefore should more properly have been described as balances held with brokers. As a result there has been a prior adjustment to the 30 September 2008 balance sheet with cash decreasing from £387,000 to £22,000 and debtors increasing from £Nil to £365,000. This has had a corresponding effect on cash as presented in the cash flow statement.

 

2.            Basis of Preparation of Half Yearly Financial Information

These unaudited interim financial statements are for the six months ended 30 September 2009. They have been prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Standards. The financial information in this interim announcement does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006.


The comparative financial information for the year ended 31 March 2009 does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 240 of the Companies Act 1985. The statutory accounts of Legendary Investments plc for the year ended 31 March 2009 have been reported on by the Company's auditor and have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. 


The current and comparative periods to September have been prepared using accounting policies and practices consistent with those adopted in the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2009 and are also consistent with those which will be adopted in the 31 March 2010 financial statements.


The company is not required to prepare financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standards as it is not a parent company. The directors are of the opinion that the adoption of International Accounting Standards would have no material impact on the reported results and will therefore continue to apply UK Generally Accepted Accounting Standards, but will reconsider the position should the company's activities lead to a material difference between the accounting basis.

 

3.            Earnings Per Share            

The calculation of earnings per share is based on the loss for the period divided by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period of 695,167,198 (2008: 627,667,198). 

 

4.            Half Yearly Report            

The half yearly report, including the financial information contained herein, is the responsibility of, and was approved by the directors on 21 December 2009. The continuing obligations of the AIM Rules for Companies require that the accounting policies and presentation applied to the half yearly figures should be consistent with those applied in preparing preceding annual accounts except where any changes, and the reasons for them, are disclosed.
