                                         ZETA COMPLIANCE GROUP plc

                                          (PLUS-Quoted Code: ZCG)

                          INTERIM RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 31ST JULY 2010

The  Board  of  Zeta  Compliance Group plc ("Zeta" or "the Company") is pleased to  present  the  Company's
unaudited  results  for  the six months ended 31st July 2010 and a period of very positive  achievement  in
terms of the Company's strategic development.

Compared  to  the same period in 2009, the Company achieved turnover growth of 21.4% and a  36.7%  rise  in
EBITDA  on  a  'like  for  like' basis, ie before taking in to consideration the  effect  of  new  business

The  new activities referred to above are the launch of a new Carbon, Energy & Sustainability business unit
in March 2010 and the acquisition of The Fire Strategy Company Limited in May 2010.

Both of these initiatives are a response to our customers wanting to use Zeta's services on a broader basis
across  their  built environment and the belief that ZetaSafe technology can be beneficially applied  to  a
spectrum  of  relevant  compliance  areas.   The direct costs  of  introducing  the  new  Carbon  and  Fire
capabilities  into the Company have been material, to which the opportunity costs of senior executive  time
must  also  be  added. Now, full concentration will be applied to operational performance of  the  expanded
business with no similar new developments being planned until integration and results have been achieved.

Total  EBITDA including these new activities was £174,050(£191,130), reflecting the start up costs  of  the
new activities. Those costs also impacted on profit before taxation of £68,210 (£117,442).

In  the  USA,  although the numbers at this stage remain small, it is pleasing to note that  our  associate
company,  Zeta LLC, has been able to report profits for the first time with a good order book  that  should
ensure further progress in the next six months.

The  second half of our financial year has started strongly and there is very reason to believe that Zeta's
results  for  its full year to 31st January 2011 will be ahead of the comparative results for the  previous

A summary of the Company's profit and loss account for the six months ended 31 July 2010 is as follows:

                                                  6 months to 31st July (Unaudited)*1
