                           Interim report - half year ended 30 June 2011
                                                 
Co-Chairman's statement

In the half year to 30 June 2011, Guild Acquisitions plc reports a loss of £19,594 (2010:£44,708).
The reduced losses were due to an unrealised currency gain of £6,373 in the Dascalu investment  as
well  as  cost  savings.  Administrative expenses for the period were reduced  to  £25,967  (2010:
£30,830).
Guild's investments at 30 June 2011 totalled £305,544 (June 2010: £166,478) up 83.5% on last  year
and  by  9.5%  on 31 December 2010.  The increase is largely due to revaluation of the  shares  in
Equity Resources plc.
In  the  period, the Company purchased a further 4,000,000 shares in Equity Resources  plc  for  a
consideration  of £20,000. This purchase included 3,000,000 warrants at 1 pence each,  which  were
taken up after the period end.
The cash position has improved markedly as the Company raised £174,000 on 30 June by a placing  of
57,999,999 new ordinary shares at 0.3 pence per share.
The net asset value per share at 30 June stood at 0.27 pence per share, equal to the book value at
the end of 2010.
In  this  rather depressing economic environment, our performance is encouraging and  the  Company
continues to look for investments which have a potential upside in the future.

 Interim report notes

1.      Interim report
    The information relates to the 6 month period from 1 January to 30 June 2011
    The interim report was approved by the Directors on 27 September 2011.
    The interim report is unaudited.
    
2.      Basis of accounting
      a.      The report has been prepared using accounting policies that the Group 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 are the financial statements of the Company.
c.      The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention and are in
accordance with applicable accounting standards.
      d.      The Companies subsidiary undertaking, Guild Management Limited was dissolved on 31 August
        2010 and in accordance the interim report for the period is not consolidated. Comparatives
        represent consolidated figures and the investment value of the subsidiary at £100 is included in
        the comparative figures for the interim report as at 30 June 2010. No change has occurred in
        income  and expenditure as the subsidiary had not commenced trading and had no  income  or
        expenditure.
      e.      Investments
            i.      Investments 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. With the exception of two investments, 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.
      f.      The Company and Group will report again for the full year to 31 December 2011.
