DJ Lombard Capital PLC Unaudited Interim Results to 30 September 2015

                         ("Lombard" or the "Company") 
                             CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT 
Dear Shareholder 
Your new board of directors was appointed at the conclusion of the Company's 
Annual General Meeting on 3 November 2015. 
At that time I was appointed Chairman and now report on the half year figures 
to 30 September 2015 which show a comprehensive loss of GBP178,869. 
Of this loss, GBP141,250 is accounted for by a reduction in the carrying values 
of two of the Company's investments. These reductions were felt appropriate 
following a review of the respective financial accounts and the lack of 
marketability in the investments.  The net asset value per share, after this 
reduction, is 5.19p. 
Whilst it is disappointing to start a new appointment with a downbeat 
statement, I am pleased to say that the board will maintain costs at an 
appropriate level whilst seeking ways to enhance shareholder value.
