REVIEW OF THE YEAR AND PERFORMANCE
I am delighted to report that during the year ended 31 March 2013, the
Company's net asset value per share total return was 30.3% and the share price
total return was 30.9%, both closely tracking the Company's benchmark, the MSCI
World Health Care Index on a net total return, sterling adjusted basis, which
rose by 31.4%. I should point out that the share price and the net asset value
total return generated during the year were enhanced by the change in the
Company's dividend payment policy whereby a first interim dividend of 7.0p per
share was paid in January 2013. This "extra" dividend payment enhanced
performance in total return terms by approximately 1.0%. The Company has
continued to benefit from strong performance from biopharmaceutical companies
such as Gilead Sciences and Onyx Pharmaceuticals, and also from large
capitalisation pharmaceutical companies such as Roche Holdings, Pfizer and
Sanofi. Further information on the Company's investments can be found in the
Review of Investments beginning on page 5 of this Annual Report.|
