OVERVIEW

I  was  appointed a Director on 18 May 2009, after the resignation of Mr J. J. De Mendonca.  Mr S. D.  Hunt
resigned as a director on 24 August 2009 and was replaced by Mr R. J. Armstrong on 26 August.

The  company  remains  a cash shell at present, although continuing actively to seek new  opportunities  to
enhance shareholder value.

We  are  maintaining  a  tight control of the company's resources, which we consider  adequate  to  support
current levels of expenditure.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

The  unaudited  financial  results  for the period to 30 June 2009 show  an  operating  loss  of  GBP7,000;
earnings per share are negative, being 0.005p.

CASH FLOW AND FUNDING

Cash in hand at the date of this report is GBP52,000, which adequately covers routine running expenses  and
also preparatory investment research cost, for the next year.

OUTLOOK

The Board continues to seek ways, by acquisition, to enhance shareholder value.
