2000 PRELIMINARY RESULTS ANNOUNCEMENT

For those of you with a vague interest in this architect, herewith the most recent interims (with apologies for formatting).

Aukett seems to be progressing quite well, and looks to me as if has some of the characteristics of Interior Services Group a year or so ago (e.g. good growth stats, high level of repeat business, blue chip clients)

I bought last week at 20, so this stock has joined the miserbale throng of red marks on my portfolio. Condolences will be accepted, but I thought the stock, and the results, looked OK at the time.
