Accounts for the Period ended 31 January 2007



Highlights



  • The proposed acquisition of Solar Labs plc
  • Current cash resources of £3.3m and up to £3.9m post acquisition of Solar
    Labs plc
  • The Board is confident of progress in 2007



Chairman's Statement

Your company was established in June 2006 and was admitted to trading on AIM in
October of that year with a net £3.32 million raised in cash and a stated
strategy of seeking investments in or acquiring assets, businesses or companies
in the resources sectors.



The Company reported a loss before tax for the period from incorporation on 13
June 2006 to 31 January 2007 of £2,000 and total equity shareholders funds at
the period end amounted to £3.39 million including cash balances of £3.38
million.



I am delighted to inform you that your Board announced on 28 March 2007 that,
subject to your approval, the Company is proposing to acquire the entire issued
share capital of Solar Labs Plc ('Solar Labs'). Solar Labs is currently a start
up business with the objective of harnessing a diverse range of technologies to
support the development of complete and economically viable solar energy
solutions.



The total consideration payable for Solar Labs of approximately £4.34 million
will be satisfied by the issue of 433,841,307 new Ordinary Shares. The new
Ordinary Shares will be issued at 1 pence per share at a 3.75 pence discount to
the mid market closing price of 4.75 pence per Ordinary share on 27 March
2007.The consideration shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary
Shares.



On completion of the acquisition, it is proposed that two of Solar Labs'
directors, David Norwood and Alan Aubrey, will join your Board. At that time, I
will change my role from that of non executive Chairman to that of non-executive
director and David will take on the role of non-executive Chairman.



Solar energy has the theoretical potential to meet global energy requirements
many times over. The energy reaching the earth's surface from the sun exceeds
human power consumption by over five thousand times. In maximising the capture
of solar energy for human exploitation, the Directors see the potential for many
parallel solar-based energy industries to co-exist, each meeting different
energy needs using tailored methods of capture, transition, delivery and
consumption.



Solar Labs aims to become a leading developer and provider of technology
solutions to the solar energy industries and may use a combination of research
collaborations, organic development and acquisitions to develop a portfolio of
intellectual property rights within solar energy. As part of this process, Solar
Labs will leverage its considerable experience in the development of
collaborations with academic research intuitions to commercialise intellectual
property and also expects to benefit significantly from the experience and
expertise of its chief scientific adviser, Prof. Peter Dobson.



Your company had audited net assets of £3.30 million as at 31 January 2007
represented almost entirely by cash balances and Solar Labs had unaudited net
assets of £0.6 million at 31 January 2007 also represented almost entirely by
cash balances. The enlarged Group will therefore have net assets of
approximately £3.90 million after transaction costs of the deal to meet its
ongoing investment strategy which your Board will pursue whilst continuing to
maintain a low cost structure for the Company.



Following completion of the acquisition your Directors will continue to identify
opportunities they believe fulfill the Company's original objectives of
investing in the energy and resources sectors but the focus will be in the field
of renewable energies and solar energy solutions which are complementary to the
Company's enlarged business.



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

Matthew Sutcliffe

Non-Executive Chairman
