Anthony Glossop, Chairman, comments:

“On the back of our marshalling programme, we move into the present year with a strong, if demanding, target. The present year has started well, but the results will be more second-half orientated than in the past. Overall I would expect it to be a year of continued progress and we remain on track to meet our corporate financial target of doubling net asset value per share every five years. .”
