Accounts for the Period ended 31 January 2007


Highlights


•         Completion of the  acquisition of Oxray Limited
•         Current cash resources of £2.9m post acquisition of Oxray Limited
•         The Board is confident of progress in 2007



Chairman's Statement

Oxeco commenced trading on AIM on 21 December having raised £2.84 million after
expenses with a strategy of seeking investments in or acquiring assets,
businesses or companies in the technology and science sector.

The Company reported an unaudited loss before tax for the period from
incorporation on 17 October 2006 to 31 January 2007 of £9,000 and total equity
shareholders funds at the period end amounted to £2.92 million including cash
balances of £2.90 million.

I am delighted to inform you that your Board will today complete the acquisition
announced on 27 March 2007 that, subject to your approval, the Company is
proposing to acquire the entire issued share capital of Oxray Limited ('Oxray').
Oxray is currently a start up business with the objective of becoming a provider
of molecular structure determination services to both industry and academic
institutions. This is to be achieved by developing novel molecular structure
determination software in-house, in-licensing IP and potentially making
acquisitions in this field.

The total consideration payable for Oxray is approximately £2.0 million which
will be satisfied by the issue of 200,000,000 new ordinary shares. The new
ordinary shares will be issued at 1 pence per share at a 4.5 pence discount to
the mid market closing price of 5.5 pence per Ordinary share on 26 March
2007.The consideration shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary
Shares.

On completion of the acquisition today, two of Oxray's directors, Professor
Stephen Davies and Jussi Westergren will join your Board. Therefore, I will
change my role from that of non executive Chairman to that of non-executive
director and Jussi will take on the role of Executive Chairman.

Oxray's primary objectives are the development of novel X-ray crystallography
structure determination software and the provision of a small molecule X-ray
crystallography structure service. The service will use a web portal behind
which the company will work to maximise the extent to which the service can be
automated. The company intends to offer standardised response times to its
customers but will also market premium services such as a fast-response and
extended scientific reporting suitable to support customers' patent
applications.

Your company had unaudited net assets of £2.92 million as at 31 January 2007
represented almost entirely by cash balances and Oxray had unaudited net assets
of £0.09 million at 31 December 2006 also represented almost entirely by cash
balances. The enlarged Group is expected to have net assets of approximately
£2.93 million after transaction costs of the deal to meet its ongoing investment
strategy.

Following completion of the acquisition your Directors intend to continue to
identify opportunities they believe fulfil the Company's original strategy of
investing in the technology and science sectors and especially those which are
complementary to the Company's enlarged business.

I am confident that your Company will make considerable progress during 2007.


Professor Graham Richards
Non-Executive Chairman
