Performance Overview

During the period under review, the Company generated investment income amounting to €190,483, which equates to an increase of 21% over the comparable period of 2013. Nonetheless, the increase in fair value of the portfolio of financial assets was 72% lower in the period up to 31 October 2014, resulting in a decline in total revenue of 15% to €218,824.

During the six month period to 31 October 2014 costs increased mainly as a result of the change in the listing status of the company which resulted in a one-off charge of circa €70,000.
