Final Results

                                       HARTFIELD SECURITIES PLC
                                            (the "Company")

                                RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 JULY 2010
The  Directors of Hartfield Securities Plc are pleased to announce the audited  results  for
the year ended 31 July 2010.


The  Company  remains  an  investment vehicle, actively continuing to seek  opportunities  to  enhance
shareholder value.

The  Board maintains a very tight control of the Company's resources and expenditure. However, in  the
light of reduced interest rates there may be a small shortfall next year.

Financial results
The  audited  financial results for the year to 31 July 2010 show an operating loss of £39,262  (2009:
£29,573) and a post tax loss of £36,309 (2009: £15,627).

Cash flow and funding
Cash  at  bank  at  31 July 2010 was £779,343 (2009: £819,712) which adequately covers  the  Company's
routine running expenses and costs for the next year.

In  June 2007 Hartfield was admitted to Plus as a newly created shell company with a view to acquiring
a  suitable  business by way of a reverse takeover. The Board's strategy, as already set  out,  is  to
consider  acquisition  targets that have revenues and which are either  profitable  or  likely  to  be
profitable  in  the  short  term.  Your  Board  has  considered  a  significant  number  of  potential
acquisitions,  some of which turned out to be of more interest than others. Each potential  target  is
given  serious  consideration by the Board and you should be aware that the  Directors,  who  are  not
remunerated,  have  spent  substantial  amounts  of time  and  effort  in  reviewing  these  potential
acquisition opportunities.

In the current difficult economic climate your Board is continuing to make every effort to conclude  a
successful acquisition but is trying to find the right transaction. Our Company is a valuable asset as
cash  is  a  rare  commodity at the current time. We are taking a cautious approach  and  have  to  be
convinced  that any transaction increases shareholder value and ultimately delivers financial  rewards
to  our shareholders. The Company's funds are on deposit with HSBC and at today's date this amount  to
approximately £750,000. At last year's AGM shareholders passed a resolution authorising the  board  to
continue their search for a suitable acquisition candidate for a further 12 months. The directors  are
pleased to announce that they have entered into an indicative offer to acquire the entire issued share
capital  of  a  company involved in the compostable print media sector. This offer is  dependent  upon
successful  legal and financial due diligence and upon obtaining the necessary shareholder  approvals.
We  will  be writing to you again shortly on this matter. Hartfield remains committed to its  strategy
and thanks you for your patience whilst a suitable acquisition target is identified.
