                         Results for the period 27 August 2008 (Date of incorporation)

                                    to 31 December 2008 and Trading Update

Chief Executive's Statement

The  Directors of TradeLabs are pleased to provide shareholders with their results to 31 December  2008  and  a
trading update ahead of the Company's year end 31 March 2009.

TradeLabs  PLC ("TradeLabs" or "the Company") was admitted to trading onto the PLUS-quoted market on 9  January
2009 (TIDM:TLAP.PL).

The  Company's proprietary trading desk, which commenced trading on 1st October 2008 declared a profit for  the
period  ending  11 November 2008 of £496,000.  Whilst market conditions have been generally difficult  for  the
financial community, TradeLabs have benefitted from the increased volatility in the futures markets in which it
operates  and  continues  to trade well and in line with the Company's expectations. The  profits  as  at  31st
December  2008 are £661,000. The Company also declared a maiden dividend of 0.1p per share which  was  paid  to
shareholders on 15 March 2009. The Company intends to announce its position on final dividends at the  time  of
the year end results.

The Company announced that the acquisition of an additional four algorithms for trading on the DAX and the FTSE
was successfully completed and the algorithms have been deployed into trading as of 1 April 2009; the DAX Trend
Limit, the  DAX  Scalper,  the  FTSE  Trend Limit and the FTSE Scalper. These  products  were  acquired  from
TraderTools FZ LLC for a consideration of £3m from existing cash resources.

With  this  acquisition  the  Company also acquired an additional subscriber base of 900 subscribers paying
US$99.00  per  month.  This, along with 60 new subscribers gained in the first quarter of 2009,  increases  the
total number of subscribers from 700 to 1,680, marking an increase of 133% in a 5 month period.

The  Company  also  announced  that it changed its year end from 31 December to 31  March  and  will  therefore
announce  their  audited  results to 31 March 2009 as soon as possible but no later  than  31  August  2009  as
required by the PLUS Rules.
