From Friday :- Interim Management Statement

Summary

· Overall new business margin of 10.7% (Q1 2012: 9.7%) reflects the continued increase in the proportion of regular premium business, in line with the Group's stated strategy;

· Regular premium new business flows remain resilient: £30.3m PVNBP in the quarter (Q1 2012: £33.9m), arising primarily from the growth market of the Far East;

· Single premium flows of £8.8m have reduced from £10.6m received in Q1 2012. This reflects the impact of volatile markets, which are affecting the timing of investment decisions and the Group's strategy of focussing on more profitable regular premium new business;

· Through profitable new business and improved market conditions, EEV at 30 September 2012 has increased marginally from £224.3m at 30 June 2012;

· The value of Assets under Administration as at 30 September 2012 has increased to £1.05bn (30 June 2012: £1.03bn);

· From 1 January 2013 Gordon Marr will assume the position of Group CEO, whilst the Group's founder, Dr Leonard Polonsky, will take the role of non-executive Chairman.

Hansard Global plc

("Hansard" or "the Group")

New business results for the six months ended 31 December 2012

Hansard Global plc, the specialist long-term savings provider, issues its new business results for the six months ended 31 December 2012 (H1 2013), which demonstrate continuing success in the Group's strategy to source regular premium new business from international growth markets and to drive significantly higher new business margins.

Summary

-- Strong growth in regular premium sales has underpinned Q2 2013 sales of GBP44.3m on the basis of Present Value of New Business Premiums ("PVNBP") which are 13.3% ahead of Q1 2013 levels;

-- Overall new business margin of 12.1% (H1 2012: 10.4%) reflects the continued increase in volume and proportion of regular premium business, in line with the Group's stated strategy;

-- Regular premium new business in H1 2013 of GBP66.8m PVNBP, primarily from the growth markets of the Far East and Latin America, remained in line with the GBP67.6m recorded in H1 2012;

-- As a result of the Group's strategy of focussing on more profitable regular premium new business and uncertain economic conditions in Europe, single premium new business flows of GBP16.6m in the period have fallen from GBP22.1m in H1 2012;

-- Over 1,300 policies have been introduced electronically in H1 2013 using the Online new business facility through Hansard OnLine, representing approximately 76% of regular premium policies issued in H1;

-- Assets under Administration of GBP1.05bn as at 31 December 2012 are broadly in line with the position at 30 September 2012 and marginally above the level at 30 June 2012.

Interim Management Statement

Summary
· A successful launch of a range of new product features and a refreshed branding in the last week of March 2014;

· New business of Hansard International Limited of £72.1m PVNBP in the period is 44.8% below Q3 2013, as anticipated;

· We have recently identified weaknesses in the Group's procedures in relation to the issue of Chargeable Events certificates required by HMRC. We are at an early stage in quantifying the impact of this issue but we currently estimate the Group's exposure, including professional costs, to be approximately £5m;
· New business margins on the PVNBP basis are approximately 5.5% (H1 2014: 7.5%) as a result of reduced sales volume;

· Following recent settlements, writs totalling approximately £3.5m remain outstanding against Hansard Europe (Q3 2014: £11.7m);

· An increased interim dividend of 3.40p per share was paid to shareholders on 3 April 2014.
