Half year report

                                                 
                                       STAVERT ZIGOMALA PLC
                                                 
               INTERIM MANAGEMENT REPORT FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDING 30TH NOVEMBER 2010
                                                 
The Directors confirm there has been an increase in Shareholders funds during the period under
review of £358,606 equivalent to an increase of 7.21%.  This compares with increases in the FTSE
100 Index of 6.55% and the FTSE All Share Index of 7.05% during the same period.   However the
Directors consider that there is no directly comparable Index.

Dividend income was broadly similar to the comparable period in the previous year and remains flat
due to the continued reduction in dividends from the UK banking sector.   The Directors do not
consider that this situation is likely to improve in the near future.

Your Directors have decided to declare an interim dividend for the ordinary stock units of 25p,
the same rate as for commensurate period last year.  The deferred stock accordingly will also
receive the same dividend as last year.    Although not covered by profit for the relevant period,
the Company has considerable reserves of Retained Earnings available for payment of dividends.

                                      Risks and Uncertainties
                                                 
The principal risks and uncertainties facing the Company relate to the general performance of the
UK stock market and our inability to dispose of securities in order to comply with the Listing
Rules.
                                            Management
                                                 
There has been no changes in the Directors of the Company.

                                       Notes to the Accounts
                             For the half year ended 30th November 2010
                                                 
1       Stavert Zigomala plc is a company domiciled in the United Kingdom.  The interim financial
        statements of the Company as at 30th September 2010 comprise the Company.

        The financial statements of the Company as at 31st May 2010 are available on request from
        the Company's registered off at Artillery House, 15 Byrom Street, Manchester M3 4PF.

2.      These interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure
        and Transparency Rules of the UK Financial Services Authority and in accordance with
        International Financial Reporting Standard IAS 34 as adopted by the EU.  The accounting
        policies applied are consistent with those adopted in the 2010 Annual Report.

        These financial statements have not been audited nor reviewed by the auditors, and do not
        include all the information required for full annual financial statements.    Those
        accounts have been reported on by the Company's auditors and delivered to the Registrar of
        Companies.  The report of the auditors was (i) unqualified, (ii) did not include reference
        to any matters to which the auditors drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying
        their report, and (iii) did not contain a statement under section 498(2) or (3) of the
        Companies Act 2006.

        The preparation of interim financial statements requires management to make judgments,
        estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the
        reported amount of assets and liabilities, income and expenses.  Actual results may differ
        from these estimates.  In preparing these interim financial statements, the significant
        judgments made by management in applying the Company's accounting policies were the same
        as those that applied to the financial statements for the year ended 31 May 2010.

        These interim financial statements are the responsibility of the Directors and were
        approved by the Board on 26th January 2011.

3.      The Directors named below confirm, to the best of their knowledge, that this set of
        interim financial statements has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 as adopted by the
        European Union and that the Interim Management Report includes a fair review of the
        information required by Sections 4.2.7 and 4.2.8 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules
        of the United Kingdom Financial Services Authority.

        Directors
        E. N. Cooper - Chairman
        A. C Sullivan - Non-Executive Director

4.      The earnings per Stock Unit have been based on the profits attributable to shareholders of
        £96,113 apportioned between the 200,000 Ordinary Stock Units and the 120,000 Deferred
        Stock Units in issue, in accordance with the provisions of the Company's Articles relating
        to the division of profits between the two classes of Stock.

5.      The Directors estimate that if all the Company's investments were to be realised at their
        bid values at 30th November 2010 the taxation liability which would arise would not exceed
        £630,903, and for which no provision has been made.
