First Half Results to 31 March 2020 
          Date: 29 May 2020 
 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 2019 to 31 March 2020. 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 147,414 at the period end. The Company made a 
          pre-tax profit of GBP 22,523. 
       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. 
          Risks in Relation to COVID-19 
          Whilst the full impact of the global pandemic is yet to be felt by 
businesses worldwide, it is likely to have a negative impact on the business 
 prospects generally and small companies in particular. This has impacted on 
  share prices, including some shares held by the Company. There remains the 
    risk that Company's investments might be further negatively impacted and 
          might not realise the carrying values on sale.
