Chairman's statement

I  am  pleased to announce a strong set of results for the period ended 31 March 2009 in which  the
board  successfully  completed  the flotation of the Company onto the  PLUS-quoted  market  on  9th
January 2009.  These results in fact cover the six months from the commencement of trading  on  1st
October 2008 to 31st March 2009.

The  Company was incorporated in Jersey, Channel Islands, on 27th August 2008 as a technology based
business  which  owns  and  exploits fully automated software trading futures  contracts  and  also
operates its own proprietary trading desk.

On  October  1, 2008, the Company acquired four trading algorithms together with income  receivable
from  subscribers  to the algorithms from TraderTools FZ LLC ("TraderTools"), a  company  based  in
Dubai, and commenced trading operations from that date.

Under  the  acquisition agreement, TradeLabs acquired all the intellectual property rights  to  the
algorithms  and  obtained  an  undertaking from TraderTools that  it  would  pay  the  Company  the
subscriber income from 700 subscribers at USD 99 per month for a period of two years, starting from
October 1, 2008.   The monthly subscriptions totaled £421,000 for the financial period to March 31,

The  decision to incorporate a proprietary trading desk into the business to demonstrate our  faith
in  the  algorithms  it acquired has proved to be correct.  The trading desk has generated  revenue
amounting to £ 752,000 during this financial period.

At  the  end of January 2009 the Company announced the acquisition of an additional four algorithms
for  trading  on the DAX and the FTSE.  These were again acquired from TraderTools for £3  million,
derived  from existing cash resources. In addition this further acquisition provided a further  900
subscribers, taking the total subscriber base to 1,600.

It  has  been  a  challenging time for financial markets around the world, but the  high  level  of
volatility, particularly in the last quarter of 2008, created the right environment for the Company
to  generate  substantial profits from its proprietary trading desk.  Now that markets are  calmer,
our  algorithms  will be adjusted for the lower levels of volatility ensuring  that,  when  trading
recommences in September (see below), profitability should be maintained.


I  am  pleased to announce that we propose to pay a final dividend of £0.001p, bringing  the  total
dividends paid for the year to £0.002p per share.  The dividend will be paid on 30 October 2009  to
shareholders on the registrar at the close of business on 30 September 2009.

Change of Domicile

At  the  start  of  2009, the Directors took the decision to relocate our business activities  from
Dubai to Singapore in order to pursue potential business opportunities in the region. Singapore  is
increasingly being recognised as the financial hub of South East Asia and establishing the  Company
here  has already proved to be very beneficial. Over the course of the move to Singapore there  was
inevitably  some  disruption  which led to the temporary cessation  of  the  Company's  proprietary
trading  activities from 13th February 2009. This hiatus also affected the research and development
programme  which was put on hold during March this year. I am however, pleased to report that  both
proprietary  trading  and research and development will recommence in early  September  2009  using
United Overseas Bank (UOB) as the margin account broker.

The Board confirms that the existing subscriber base has been unaffected by the move; the number of
subscribers has in fact increased from 1,620 at the financial year end to 1,662 at the end of  June

The  Board also wishes to confirm that the temporary cessation of the proprietary trading desk  has
not  made a material impact on the Company's working capital which, in the opinion of the Board  is
sufficient for the Company's present requirements, that is at least for the next twelve months from
the date of this statement.

  Moving  the staff and operations has taken several months and we are pleased to report  that  the
transition  is  now  completed.  The Company is now based at 1, Changi North Street  1,  Singapore,

other explanatory notes.

Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
2.  Management  is  responsible  for  the  preparation and fair  presentation  of  these  financial
statements  in  accordance  with International Financial Reporting Standards.  This  responsibility
includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation  and
fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due  to
fraud  or  error;  selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies;  and  making  accounting
estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.

Limitations on the scope of our audit
3.  As disclosed under note 14 to the financial statements, the Company's transactions recorded for
the  reporting  period  ended  March  31, 2009, were conducted substantially  with  parties  either
directly or indirectly related to the Company. These are summarized below:
                                                                           Amount          %
                                                                            £'000          Related

* Revenues from trading of future contracts                                  752           100
* Revenues from subscription fees                                            421           100
* Sales of software                                                        6,129            99.9
* Purchases of software                                                    5,750           100
* Intangible assets                                                        5,000           100
* Trade and other receivables                                              2,433            99.8
* Inventory                                                                   60           100

Consequently,  our  audit evidence in respect of account balances, revenues and  expenditures  were
obtained  substantially  from directly or indirectly related parties.  We were  not  provided  with
sufficient  direct or indirect non - related party audit evidence in order to satisfy ourselves  as
to  the validity, completeness and accuracy of account balances, revenues and expenditures recorded
as of and for the reporting period ended March 31, 2009.

Disclaimer of auditor's opinion
4.  Because of the significance of the matter discussed in paragraph 3 above, we do not express  an
    opinion on the financial statements.

5 . Going concern:
The Company has not entered into any trading activities since February 13, 2009 except for research
and development which ceased in March 2009. Furthermore, the management have closed all its trading
margin accounts with its brokers. These conditions indicate the existence of a material uncertainty
which  may  cast  significant doubt about the Company's intention to continue as a  going  concern.
However,  these  financial  statements have been prepared on a going concern  basis  owing  to  the
representation of the Company's management of its intention to relocate and recommence its  trading
operations in Singapore subsequent to the balance sheet date.
