Interim report - half year ended 30 June 2009


                                      Guild Acquisitions Plc
                                    ("Guild" or "the Company")
                           Interim report - half year ended 30 June 2009
Chairman's statement

Interim Results
In  the  half year to 30th June 2009 Guild Acquisitions plc made a small loss after tax of £22,493
(2008:  loss of £23,694) due principally to the level of operating expenses required to be  listed
on PLUS.

The  net  asset value per share has dipped to 0.55 pence, compared to 0.62 pence at the year  end,
but  if  asset  values are shown at market value this rises to 1.16 pence.  This  is  due  to  the
increased  value  of V22 on PLUS Markets which stood at the period end at three  times  its  issue
price and to the increase in land value at Dascalu Development SRL.

As at 30th June the company had a cash balance of £26,341.

It must be clear to all investors that we are now operating in a challenging environment for small
cap businesses; nevertheless we continue to look to some improvement in the near future.

I  wish  to  record my gratitude to all investors who have continued to support Guild Acquisitions
and look forward to further developments during 2009.

 Interim report notes

1.      Interim report
        The information relates to the 6 month period from 1 January to 30 June 2009.

        The interim report was approved by the Directors on 28th September 2009.

        The interim report is unaudited.
2.      Basis of accounting

      a.  The report has been prepared using accounting policies that the Group and its subsidiary
          undertaking have adopted and were used for the first accounting period to 31 December 2006.  
          The information does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of section 240 of 
          the Companies Act 1985.

      b.  These interim financial statements consolidate the financial statements of the Company and
          its subsidiary, Guild Management Limited.

      c.  The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention and are in
          accordance with applicable accounting standards.
      d.  Investments

            i.  Investments other than the Company's shareholding in its subsidiary undertaking Guild
                Management Limited are held as current asset investments and are valued at the lower of 
                cost and net realisable value.

            ii. The net realisable value of certain investments is not readily determinable by reference
                to a quoted market price. The directors have therefore made their own assessment of the net
                realisable value and adjusted the carrying value of the investment where this is considered 
                to be less than cost. This assessment requires the use of estimation techniques, which are 
                reliant upon their experience and expertise. The directors have no information that would 
                suggest a reduction to the carrying value of investments to below cost.

            iii.These current asset investments are held as part of an investment portfolio and no investment 
                is made as a media through which the Company carries on its business. Investments which may 
                otherwise be classified as Associates, do not therefore fall within this classification for
                accounting purpose.

      e.  The Company and Group will report again for the full year to 31 December 2009.
The Directors of the Company accept responsibility for this announcement.
