Early Equity Plc

Audited Final Results

                               Early Equity Plc                                
                       ("Early Equity" or the "Company")                       

                             Audited Final Results                             

On 31 January 2013, the Company released its `Unaudited Final Results' for the
year ended 31 August 2012, which were prepared in accordance with United
Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice ("UKGAAP"). At that time, the
Company also announced that its audited results for the year ended 31 August
2012 would be prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting
Standards ("IFRS"). The Board is now pleased to present the audited results for
Early Equity Plc for the year ended 31 August 2012 prepared in accordance with
IFRS. The final results for the year ended 31 August 2011 presented below, have
been restated in accordance with IFRS and the unaudited results for the year
ended 31 August 2012, announced under UKGAAP on 31 January 2013, have been
included in this statement to highlight the principle differences.


  * Total comprehensive loss of (£15,808) (2011-restated: loss of (£63,992)).
  * Loss on sale of investment of £59,047 as a result of sales of shares in
    Alpha Prospects Plc and Perform Marketing Limited.
  * Investment portfolio stated at market value, less impairment provisions: £
    286,078 (2011-restated: £500,093).
  * Value of the investments in Tangibal Group Plc quoted on Frankfurt Börse
    and Alpha Prospects Plc quoted on ISDX continue to stand at premium to
  * Net assets of £277,937 down 36% year on year (2011-restated: £435,229).
  * All outstanding loans were repaid and the Company is now largely free of
The Company reports an operating loss for the year of (£140,582)
(2011-restated: (£68,312)). A loss on sale of investment of £59,047 was
incurred following the sales of shares in Alpha Prospects Plc (`Alpha') and
Perform Marketing Limited. Our remaining investment in Alpha remains non-core
and we continue to seek to realise this asset at an advantageous price.

In February 2012, the Company reached an agreement with the previous directors
of the Company, Robert Painting and Jonathan Hall, to settle all outstanding
loans from Mr. Painting and Harbinger Capital Plc. Subsequently in March 2012,
the Company used funds from sales of investments to strengthen its balance
sheet by settling all outstanding debts within the Company, leaving it debt

During the period, Gregory Collier, Lim Hui Jie and I joined the Board; Robert
Painting and Jonathan Hall have stepped down from the Board.

The Board believes that life on the ISDX Growth Market for small investment
companies such as ours will continue to be difficult for the foreseeable
future. The nature of the Company's investments is such that whilst high
returns are possible, liquidity in these investments is very low and
realisation of profit and cash through sales remains difficult. Operating
expenses will continue to be kept at a minimum until more regular cash flows
can be generated.

Subsequent to the reporting period, in October 2012, the Company undertook a
share capital reorganisation and an Open Offer to raise approximately £200,000
(gross of expenses). The net proceeds of the Open Offer will be used for
working capital purposes and to evaluate prospective investments under the
Company's revised investment strategy, which is to invest in early stage, small
to medium enterprises around the world.

The Directors have identified potential investments in technology and
distribution of consumer products which we are currently evaluating. The Board
intends to seek further realisations of the Company's existing portfolio and to
create value for shareholders through making investments which have a
significant potential uplift. We believe that the Company will be in a position
to create further shareholder value in the near future.

Finally, on behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity of
thanking the Company's professional advisers for their support and assistance
throughout the year.
