Team (Impression) Holdings PLC: Interim Results for Six Months to 30th November 2007

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2008) -

Chairman's Statement for Team (Impression) Holdings PLC

The board of Team (Impression) Holdings PLC is pleased to announce its Interim Accounts for the period 1st June 2007- 30th November 2007.

As per our recent trading statement the company has continued to enjoy top line sales growth and allowing for the costs of listing on PLUS continues to prove to be a highly profitable print business.

Booked in sales in the period were up approximately 14% on the same period for the last financial year on like for like basis, resulting in invoiced sales GBP 457,000 over budget.

During this period we have also bolstered our external and internal sales and admin departments to cope with demand, thus allowing a settling in period prior to further sales growth expected in our new financial year.

Looking forward we are aware of the proposed changes to first year capital allowances in April and as such feel sensible capital equipment spend will achieve significant level of allowances, and as such is a tax efficient investment. We are also mindful of our business plan for continued growth and the capital equipment required to facilitate this. Your board is currently evaluating various solutions to add value and to expand our offering.

Terms have been agreed with Hewlett Packard for the supply of a new state of the art HP Indigo 5500 which has the very latest specification and allows very high levels of production and quality.

A Heidelberg bespoke foil blocking machine is to be installed within our print finishing factory. This will allow foil blocking in-house, previously an outwork cost of approx GBP 85,000 per annum.

We are intending to purchase a new front end work flow to be installed by the end of March. Demonstrations of such systems and negotiations continue with various suppliers. This investment in technology should allow increase in sales without the need for increase in head
count.

The board are investigating the possibility of a move into the large format sector and are consulting with various providers of this type of equipment. This will allow us to cross sell further added value products into our existing client base. This will be a digital output device with UV curing and will print a size of 1.25 metres x 2.5 metres and up to 48mm calliper - this is much larger and thicker than we can presently output.

After taking all the above matters into consideration the company is well placed now for trading challenges in the months ahead.

John Crowson, Chairman
