This is a correction of the announcement released by the Company at 7.00am this 
morning, 31 January 2018. 
The title of that announcement stated that the Final Results for the Company

announcement are for the year ended 31 August 2017. The full amended text of 
the announcement is shown below. 
                              Formation Group Plc 
                        ("Formation" or the "Company") 
                  Final Results for Year Ended 31 August 2017 
Chairman's Statement 
I am pleased to present the annual result for the Company for the twelve-month 
period to 31 August 2017. 
The year ended 31 August 2017 saw Formation work on existing construction 
projects, and initiate new larger projects during the latter part of the year. 
The more cautious investment activity is predominantly due to the uncertainty 
of the UK economy, both before and after the 'Brexit' referendum. House prices 
in London, the Group's key market, have been volatile though the reporting 
The Group spent much of the year completing existing projects, and revenues 
have increased 26% this year from GBP29.410m in 2016 to GBP37.011m in 2017. Revenue 
has mainly been generated from projects initiated in 2016. As a result, and 
despite the increase in turnover, the Company has produced an operating loss 
this year of GBP0.107m (2016 profit GBP0.733m). 
The finance income item of GBP0.33m relates to an adjustment to income recognised 
from the profit share in relation to a development property at Norwich House, 
9-19 Streatham High Road.  The total amounts due by Sunbel Development Limited 
in relation to the profit share agreement, were repaid in February 2017. The 
loss on ordinary activities, before taxation was GBP0.152m (2016 profit of GBP 
2.157m). The reduction in this figure from last year is reflective of the 
conclusion of the Norwich House profit share agreement. 
Every effort is being made to source further development and investment 
opportunities, and the Group is continuing to seek out new opportunities. 
The Group has added and will continue to add to the experienced base of 
construction personnel. 
The Board and Staff 
I would like to thank all board members and staff for the enormous efforts and 
dedicated contributions they have made during the year. I would also like to 
thank our shareholders for their continued trust and confidence in the Board 
and in my leadership as Chairman.
