First Half Results to 31 March 2016 
 
Date: 28 April 2016 
 
Results 
 
Gledhow Investments plc ("Gledhow" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its 
half year results ("interim results") for the current financial year.  The 
period covered is from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016.  These are unaudited 
interim results. 
 
The Company continues to pursue its investment strategy which has the objective 
of achieving long-term capital growth. 
 
The Company had cash of GBP 190,432 at the period end.  The continued downturn 
in the resources sector was primarily responsible for the unrealised losses. 
During the period the company invested EUR40,000 by way of a convertible into 
Bolt Mobility BV, a Dutch company developing the AppScooter, an electric 
scooter it hopes will be "the Dutch Tesla on two wheels". 
 
Despite the uncertain economic environment the Company is in a strong position, 
thanks to its strong cash position, and we look forward to being able to make 
opportunistic investments in small to medium sized undervalued companies as 
they arise.
