Interim Results

Creon Corporation PLC

27 October 2005

                             CREON CORPORATION PLC

                           UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS

                       FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 31 JULY 2005

Creon Corporation Plc ("Creon" or "the Company"), the AIM-traded company, is
pleased to announce its unaudited results for the period ended 31 July 2005.


  • £1.493 million of gross funds raised
  • Admission to trading on AIM achieved
  • Mezzanine financings completed in line with stated strategy

Jonathan Freeman, a Director of Creon, commented:

"Our overall aim with Creon is to identify and support small and medium sized
residential property developers.  We believe that we are now doing this
successfully and that we have established the profile and expertise to build on
this platform.  The projects that we currently have and others that we are
evaluating should provide Creon with attractive levels of return within an
acceptably low level of risk.  We look forward to progress in the coming months
as we seek to continue to find and fund further residential developments."

                           UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS

                       FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 31 JULY 2005

Directors Review


We are delighted to present these first interim results to shareholders which
show the financial performance of the Company for the period ended 31 July 2005.
It should be noted, however, that although Creon was incorporated on 27 August
2004 it did not raise its first material funds or seek to begin its investment
activities until after its admission to trading on AIM on 25 November 2004.
Creon provides mezzanine finance to small and medium sized UK residential
property developers.  This style of financing typically takes some months to
negotiate with the developers.  In addition the finance provided is usually for
a fixed 12 month period.  Accordingly these interim results cover too short a
period for there to be material revenue changes to the Company's financial


We announced on 29 June 2005 that we had successfully completed our first
financing, which was the provision of £400,000 to support a £2.7 million
development of ten new houses in the Midlands.  On 20 July 2005 we announced the
completion of a further financing, providing £390,000 to support a £2.2 million
development of 5 new houses in South West England.  We will receive an agreed
finance fee on repayment of the facility in twelve months time.

We continue to negotiate with developers on a range of other developments and
expect to continue to provide funds to property developers on an increasingly
regular basis.


Our only material fund raisings occurred in November 2004 when a total of £1.493
million (gross) was raised.  Against this we have incurred considerable one off
costs in the creation of the Company, the raising of the funds, gaining
admission to trading on AIM and the setting up the internal infrastructure,
procedures and processes for the assessment and negotiation of potential
financing projects.  We believe that this process has now been completed though
we will, of course, continue to supervise and monitor the Company's processes
and controls with a view to improving and updating them as necessary.

                              CREON CORPORATION PLC

                           UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS

                       FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 31 JULY 2005

Funding (continued)

We also have an option agreement with Forestdale Trading Limited, information on
which was disclosed at the time of Creon's admission to trading on AIM.  This
option agreement entitles Creon to exercise an option requiring Forestdale
Trading Limited to procure the subscription by third party investors of £1.6
million for new ordinary shares during the one month period following eight
months after admission to trading on AIM, failing which it is to subscribe for
such shares itself.  Creon is completing the arrangements for this and will
announce the details as soon as it is completed.

We had anticipated, when we were planning the funding requirements of Creon at
the end of 2004, that the funds raised at the time of Admission together with
the option agreement with Forestdale Trading Limited, would provide sufficient
cash resources for Creon as financings would begin to be recycled by the time
this equity funding had been utilised.  However, we have found that the demand
for the financing offered by Creon is much greater than expected.  We are
therefore seeking additional sources of funding in order to accelerate the
development of the Company.


The Directors believe that the financings already provided are proceeding as
anticipated and that the pipeline of potential new business under review is very
strong.  We therefore look forward to the future as we begin to use the profile
and platform we have created.  We believe that the projects that we are now
accessing should provide Creon with attractive levels of return within an
acceptably low level of risk.
