 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 2018 to 31 March 2019. 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 85,890 at the period end. The Company made a 
          pre-tax loss of GBP 58,255. 
   The Company had a pre-IPO exposure to Block Energy PLC, with an outlay of 
   GBP55,500. The Company has disposed of this entire position for GBP175,463, a 
 216% uplift on its original investment. GBP134,963 of the disposal came after 
          the period end. 
       Despite the uncertain economic environment the Company is in a strong 
  position, thanks to its strong cash position, and we look forward to being

          companies as they arise.
