Summary
· In line with our strategic plan we have successfully entered into business relationships with a number of new significant IFA networks and other institutions in our target markets. Plans are being implemented which will provide a platform for sustainable and diversified new business flows;

· New business in Q2 2015 is approximately 13% higher than the £13.8m PVNBP reported in Q1 2015, reflecting increased interest in the Group's products;

Results for the six months ended 31 December 2014

SUMMARY

· In line with our strategic plan we have successfully entered into business relationships with significant IFA networks and other institutions in our target markets which will provide a platform for sustainable and diversified new business flows;

· IFRS profits of £6.6m are in line with the comparative period and in line with expectations;

· EEV profit after tax of £6.6m (H1 2014: £2.2m loss) reflects improved market performance and the strengthening of the US dollar against sterling over the period. The low level of new business in the period resulted in a negative contribution from new business;

· The increased interim dividend of 3.5p per share is funded by positive operating cash flows;

· Our estimate of the Group's exposure, including professional costs, in relation to the issue of Chargeable Events Certificates announced in FY 2014, remains unchanged at £5.0m;

· There has been no material change in the litigation against Hansard Europe. Writs totalling approximately £5.4m remain outstanding (30 June 2014: £5.2m). We continue to defend these claims strenuously.
