wshak: tiltonboy, You will get out at a premium to the current share price. I believe, finally, that the Board has got the message. The only thing that remains to determine is the price at which we can exit and there would be no point at all to a shareholder driven buyback unless it is at close to NAV. After that, they can do what they like with the Company. WShak

skyship: Better than a share buyback would be a tender offer for, say, 25% of the equity @ NAV less, say, 20%. That would be an open offer for 43m shares @ c3.35p/share, absorbing a mere £1.5m of the cash balance. The shares would then stand at or about that level in anticipation of another tender. It would provide support to the share price; and of course the resultant NAV/share would also be increased.

simon cawkwell: Bruce Rowan Esq., 11th June 2011 Tiger Resource Finance plc, 2 Cromwell Place, London SW7 2JE Dear Bruce Tiger Resource Finance plc's performance When I originally sought a meeting with you and so agreed one set for 11th March 2011 my purpose was to agree as to where we agree and where we disagree. Since that meeting's cancellation by you it has seemingly been impossible to arrange a subsequent date. Of course I also seek (insofar as I am able) to influence your thinking and thus direct the subsequent course of action. I appreciate that you are under no obligation to do what I say. But, the longer common sense is absent from the handling of the company's assets, the greater the damage through current delays. However, there is one point, which must be stressed before any reasonable review can occur. You have more than once raised the point that you have in recent years been seriously ill for prolonged periods and that, even as I write, matters are far from resolved. Hardly any Tiger shareholder would wish you ill. But the fact is that you have undertaken to be CEO of Tiger and that means if your health is not up to it you should resign. That may mean that there is an immediate problem for you as to the handling of your near 30% holding. Whereas I am sure that there is a cure to your dilemma whether through partial or entire liquidation of Tiger or through transferring your holding to new and competent management (indeed quite possibly in relation to an entirely new direction for the company), the fact is that delay is not a cure. You have offered disingenuous claims that the company is doing well. For instance, you have cited the large profit that was taken during 2010 and the fact that a high proportion of the company's assets has been in cash for years. However, and as you must know, a portfolio such as Tiger's will from time to time throw up an exceptional gain and it is merely that you have elected to take such a gain in 2010. In short, this is most certainly not evidence of skill in management – merely evidence of random movements and opportunities when handling resource stocks. As for the claim to effective management through conserving cash, words almost fail me. The fact is that only an idiot would have failed to grasp the opportunities that kept on arising from early 2009. Your policy of liquidity has been a disaster. And I make the further point that you personally have not hesitated to subscribe for resource stocks outwith Tiger and on your own account. It is simply misleading to imply that you were unaware of these opportunities for Tiger when you yourself were taking them up. I might be respectful of your claim to have managed the company properly had you made any effort to generate trading income or underwriting commission possibly through a subsidiary for tax purposes. But there has been no such effort. Why? I am also concerned as to the contributions of Mr Bird and Mr Nolan. They are recognised as people who are acquainted with the resource sector. Yet seemingly little has been in practice developed as a result of their efforts. Why? Further, the aggregate overheads of the company of the order of £384,000 ignore the fact that this amount is totally disproportionate to a fund of £8 million deployed in portfolio investments (i.e. where no trading income has been generated). It might be different if this level of costs were a one-off. But the fact is that this company has been drenched with costs with little likelihood of a reasonable return for many years. This is at best idleness and stupidity on your part. As it happens, I myself have made a useful seven figure sum on resource stocks over this last two and a half years and am perfectly well aware of the pitfalls and challenges. I think it is not so much amazing as intolerable that Tiger has so spectacularly missed the boat. I hold you responsible. I know that you have said in the 2010 Operations Review that you have declared that you are exploring ways of bringing the share price closer in line with net asset value. But this strikes me as a latter-day conversion which has been so delayed as to fail to achieve credibility. Certainly, only a fool would rely upon it. I have considered various avenues available to me and others, including litigation if necessary based upon oppression of minorities legislation and brought against you personally. I therefore urge you to take what I have here written very seriously. Given your time of life and the fact that you have quite enough money for your personal needs I think you should avoid being considered to have wilfully engaged in demeaning behaviour and avoid charges of dereliction of duty to Tiger's shareholders. Please can we urgently discuss these matters. Finally, please could you see that I can enter and speak at the company's AGM as a result of my younger daughter's holding which is of the order of 2,500,000 shares and held through Charles Stanley's nominees. Yours sincerely, Simon Cawkwell

skyship: A small extract from today's Finals: "We have been careful to preserve shareholder value within Tiger and the NAV per share at the 4.27p level reflects this. We are conscious that the market also needs to value Tiger at the sum of its parts and we will work to bridge the current discount between share price and NAV and to position Tiger as capable of underpinning its Balance Sheet value with the potential to secure superior returns from well negotiated investment decisions. The level of cash held for future investment purposes has been overly conservative and the Board will seek to utilise the Company's cash more efficiently to benefit the Company's performance and to give value to shareholders in the period ahead."

skyship: Found the letter - I see I addressed it to BR rather than CB. It was CB who answered! Mr Bruce Rowan TIGER RESOURCE FINANCE PLC 2. Cromwell Place London SW7 2JE ROYAUME UNI 24th August 2007 Dear Mr Rowan RE: TIGER RESOURCE FINANCE – "TIR" Perhaps the only disadvantage of no longer living in the UK, is that I am in practical terms unable now to attend the AGMs of companies in which I invest both my pension & personal investment funds. That said, I was pleased to read that you welcome shareholder comment, so I would now like to pose a few questions and suggestions: 1. TRANSPARENCY Over the past few years, in a time when every listed company has sought to improve shareholder communication and investment companies in particular have provided more regular asset valuations and portfolio declarations, you have moved in the opposite direction with now just Quarterly NAV declarations and Half-yearly portfolio declarations. Over the same period the dealing activity of TIR has been almost moribund, so the previous reason given of "necessary secrecy so as not to hinder stake building or liquidation" clearly has no base in fact. Might I therefore suggest that you immediately, in the interests of good shareholder communication, change your reporting to: # NAV declarations - weekly # Portfolio declarations - monthly 2. MIT VENTURES CORP. Listed in the TIR portfolio is a holding valued at £40k and described merely as MIT Ventures Corp. Loan Note. Could you please provide some information on this investment, in particular whether we earn any interest, whether there is any capital upside and when it is due for repayment? 3. ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES Over the 3 years of 2004/5/6 Administrative Expenses have escalated markedly as a %age of Shareholder Funds: 2004: 3.7% 2005: 4.2% 2006: 5.4% In view of the relative inactivity over this period, could you please advise why such an escalation has occurred, how it can be justified and whether you recognise that a cap on costs should be instigated. 4. CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT – 26th June 2007 A very brief study of the TIGER portfolio shows a bundle of frankly rather poorly performing mining companies, saved wholly by the holding in Franconia. Fortunately the overall performance of the portfolio relies on the two major investments in the junior oil & gas exploration sector – together accounting for over two-thirds of the TIR non-cash portfolio as at end May'07. In spite of this fact your Chairman's Statement of 26th June makes absolutely no mention of OIL. Could you tell me something as to your thoughts in that area? 5. INVESTMENT STRATEGY & PERFORMANCE Again over the 3 years of 2004/5/6, a period of massively increasing commodity prices, soaring share prices and almost historically low interest rates you have been keeping an average of 45% of TIR net assets in CASH. This policy has quite naturally severely constrained the investment performance of TIR. To respond that over this period there was a lack of assured good investments in the Natural Resource sector is patently absurd. With hindsight of course, just buying into the leading global miners (BHP Billiton, Anglo-American, Xstrata etc.) would have proved well worthwhile, as would have been a policy of delegating responsibility by buying into any of the leading Natural Resource investment trusts. Sitting on CASH in such boom conditions shows what can only be kindly described as questionable judgement. Of course, we can't wind the clock back, but equally an alternative to the recent relative failure surely needs to be found. The Board's principal responsibility to shareholders is to maximise shareholder value. Other than through investment performance, the Board in my view quite correctly sought and received shareholder approval for a series of Section 163(3) share buybacks with the stated objective of reducing the share price discount to the underlying NAV. However, the Scheme has only partially been successful. By buying-in stock at such a discount to NAV, the underlying NAV per share has been improved; but over the period of the buybacks the NAV discount has simply widened further. A couple of weeks ago, when Ascent Resources was trading above 30p, the NAV discount exceeded 50%! Might I recommend a solution: GENERAL TENDER OFFER Another tactic used by many listed companies has been to return cash to shareholders via a general tender offer. This has the subsidiary benefit of reducing the NAV discount as it confirms the Board's intent to more closely align the share price to underlying value. What can be done once, can be done again should the excess discount continue. In the case of TIR a 1 for 3 buyback @ a price in the region of 4.5p-5.0p / share would seem to be appropriate bearing in mind the current Market price of 3.65p; the current Gross NAV of c.6.3p; and the recent share price intra-day high of 4.85p-5.0p. Allowing for costs of 200k (perhaps too high an estimate), the cost of the tender would be £2.82m-£3.11m; ie an amount easily fundable from existing cash balances. I suggest that the above course of action will: a). Reduce the future NAV discount b). Provide shareholders with a cash bonus more than compensating for past lack of dividends c). Utilise a fair %age of the cash reserves for which TIR has had no apparent use over recent years I assume that you will wish to discuss the contents of this letter with both other Board members and retained professional advisers, so I have forwarded copies to: # Colin Bird # Michael Nolan # Davy Corporate Finance # WH Ireland I look forward to hearing from you regarding the various questions above; and most especially regarding the Tender Offer proposal. Please do feel free to respond by Email. Yours sincerely

skyship: WK - I traded letters with TIR back in August 2007. So as to be sure of a response I addressed my initial letter to Bruce Rowan, but mailed copies to all directors & all advisors. The reply when it came was from Colin Bird VIA (and I quote): "....which we received earlier this month via the Company's nominated advisor's Davy Corporate Finance." My outgoing letter: Dear Mr Rowan RE: TIGER RESOURCE FINANCE – "TIR" Perhaps the only disadvantage of no longer living in the UK, is that I am in practical terms unable now to attend the AGMs of companies in which I invest both my pension & personal investment funds.

Please do feel free to respond by Email. Yours sincerely ================================================================== I'll try to grab some time to type out the response, but frankly it was just all rather disingenuous! I became disillusioned as to the likelihood of any change, so sold down 90% of my holding. The only way to have any chance of getting change, is to confront the directors at the AGM. I've done that successfully in the past by creating a stink & being downright rude at the AGM when the directors of Lionheart were deplorably seeking to buy out the company for their own advantage. I started by mailshotting some of the larger shareholders on the share register; and found two shareholders who were useful and active; and were also actively participating by buying a meaningful stake. The outcome was liquidation and a fair distribution. Sorry, I can't help as I now live abroad, but obviously wish you every success.
