Cantina Augusto plc: Final Results

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) -

(the 'Company')

Final Audited results for the period ended 30 September 2007

Cantina Augusto plc today announces its results for the period from incorporation in July 2006 to 30 September 2007, during which period the Company did not trade.


I am pleased to make this statement to you as Chairman of the Company.

Review of activities

Cantina Augusto PLC was incorporated in July 2006 and these financial results reflect the raising of the initial capital to set up the Company to enable the post year-end placing of ordinary shares, which raised Pounds Sterling 210,000 gross of expenses for the purposes of acquiring the restaurant business of Cantina Augusto ('Cantina') and to provide working capital.

The acquisition of Cantina was completed in October 2007 and trading commenced on PLUS.

Financial Results and Business Review

The Company made a loss after taxation of Pounds Sterling 2,000. The Company did not trade during the period. The loss arose from costs incurred for setting up and accountancy.

The first trading results of the enlarged Group will be announced in the interim results to 31 March 2008.


Current trading of Cantina is in line with your Board's expectations.

Your Board is actively seeking sites to roll out the 'Cantina' brand in line with the Company's declared objectives as well as pursing suitable acquisitions.

M Nash, Chairman
