     Unaudited Interim Report for the six-month period ended 30 June 2019 
Review of operations for the six month period ended 30 June 2019 
The Directors are pleased to announce the interim results for six months ended 
30 June 2019. The company continues to trade profitably as a residential and 
mixed use property developer. The trading environment remains challenging and 
the Directors are pleased to report a pre-tax profit of GBP84,407 (2018 - GBP 
18,272) for the period. 
The Company paid an interim Ordinary share dividend of 5.5p per share in June 
2019. The Company also paid an interim dividend of 5.5p July 2018. The net 
assets per share stands currently stand at 126p (June 2018 - 134p) at the end 
of this interim reporting period having accounted for the payment of both the 
July 2018 and June 2019 interim dividend payments. 
A summary of the progress on our current projects is set out below: 
Sutton High Street, Sutton 
The Company has invested in a regeneration property development venture at 
Sutton High Street.   Phase I of the development project (consisting of 41 
residential units over ground floor retail space ) was completed in October 
2016.   All residential units have been sold on this first phase.   The Company 
retains an interest in the remaining ground floor commercial space of phase I, 
as well as phase II of the project ( currently a disused and derelict public 
house site ) where we hope to secure planning permission for redevelopment in 
association with our development partner.   Planning on phase II has been 
challenging but following the clarification as to what will be acceptable to 
the Planning Inspectorate in July 2019 we plan to submit an acceptable ( and 
compliant ) planning application for a new build development of 30 residential 
units over ground floor commercial / retail space on phase II in Autumn 2019.

under offer with solicitors now instructed.
