CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHSED 31 MARCH 2020

INTERIM MANAGEMENT REPORT

Dear Shareholder,

We are experiencing unprecedented and uncertain times. The property market endured three years of protracted Brexit negotiations and now the physical restrictions and economic concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The Thames Valley property market has historically proved resilient to fluctuations in the wider UK market and whilst I expect this to remain it is extremely concerning to view the potential long-term damage caused to growth and stability by the necessary and important government lockdown measures.

In the first quarter, September to December 2019, commercial property lettings and rent reviews were successfully completed. Residential lettings were similarly active with rental values remaining unchanged. Inevitably since early January activity in all sectors of the property market has been placed on hold. The commercial property investment market has slowed down albeit investors continue to search for income as benchmark interest rates have again moved lower.

In the current environment across the group we are liaising and assisting tenants who have requested a deferment of rent, these include agreeing to monthly payments in arrears rather than quarterly in advance and part payment allowed from rental deposits held.

The waiving of business rates, deferral of VAT payments, salary support and business grants should assist a number of our tenants. We are not proposing to accommodate a waiver of rent preferring to assist with cash flow where possible.

FINANCIALS

For the six months ending 31 March 2020 profit before tax amounted to GBP0.39m (March 2019: GBP0.30m; September 2019: GBP1.65m). This figure includes an after-tax loss from Campmoss Property Company Limited ("Campmoss") our 47.62% joint venture of GBP0.03m (March 2019 after tax loss GBP0.05m; September 2019 after tax profit GBP0.90m).

Revenue for the six months to 31 March 2020 represented by rental income totalled GBP0.34m (March 2019: GBP0.32m; September 2019: GBP0.65m). The Groups share of revenue from Campmoss was GBP0.32m (March 2019: GBP0.27m; September 2019: GBP0.53m), represented by rental income of GBP0.32m (March 2019: GBP0.27m; September 2019: GBP0.53m) and property sales of nil (March 2019: nil; September 2019: nil). Rental income and sales figures for Campmoss are not included in group revenue.

Net assets of the group as at 31 March 2020 were GBP28.14m (March 2019: GBP27.20m; September 2019: GBP28.34m) equivalent to GBP22.99 per share (March 2019: GBP21.84; September 2019: GBP22.85). The Company's share of net assets in Campmoss included on the group balance sheet amounted to GBP14.93m. (March 2019: GBP15.15m; September 2019: GBP15.60m). The directors have taken into account recent RICS guidance and whilst there is currently a greater level of uncertainty due to COVID-19 on balance ,as mentioned, there are no material change in the investment value of the group's property portfolio as at 31 March 2020. The freehold investment properties held by Cardiff will be professionally valued at 30 September 2020.

During the six months to 31 March 2020 the company purchased for cancellation 18,362 Ordinary Shares (March 2019: 6,950 Ordinary Shares; September 2019: 12,567 Ordinary Shares). There have been no material events or material changes in assets liabilities or related party relationships since 30 September 2019.

Current IFRS accounting recommends that deferred tax is chargeable on the difference between the indexed cost of properties and quoted investments and their current market value. However, current IFRS does not require the same treatment in respect of the group's unquoted investments in Campmoss, the 47.62% owned joint venture, which represents a substantial part of the company's net assets.

Whilst provision is made in Campmoss accounts for deferred tax, should the shares held in Campmoss be disposed of, for indicative purposes, based on the value in the company's balance sheet at 31 March 2020 this would result in a tax liability of GBP2.84m (March 2019: GBP2.58m; September 2019: GBP2.65m) equivalent to GBP2.29 per share (March 2019: GBP2.07; September 2019 GBP2.14) calculated using a tax rate of 19% (March 2019: 17%; September 2019: 17%). This information is provided to shareholders as an additional, non-statutory, disclosure.

DIVID

The directors have declared an interim dividend of 4.8p (interim March 2019: 4.6p; final September 2019: 12.5p) an increase of 4.3% which will be paid on 2 July 2020 to shareholders on the register at 29 May 2020.

THE INVESTMENT & DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO

The group's freehold property portfolio including those held by Campmoss, continues to be concentrated in the Thames Valley close to Heathrow Airport and to the west of London.

The Windsor Business Centre, Windsor, comprises of four business units totalling 9,500 sq. ft. and is fully let currently on short term leases. Planning permission to increase the existing space to a total of 19,000 sq. ft. was recently obtained and detailed plans are currently being prepared.

Office rents in Windsor have risen substantially over the past few years and any development decision will depend on market factors. In the meantime, the existing units remain available for sale.

Maidenhead Enterprise Centre, Maidenhead, comprises of six individual business units totalling 14,000 sq. ft. and is fully let. A new letting was recently agreed at an increased rental.

At The White House, Egham, the five ground floor retail units are all let. Part of the upper floor office space, which recently underwent extensive refurbishment, is available for let. The Property is centrally located in the High Street and benefits from excellent parking facilities.

Heritage Court, Egham, comprises of four retail units all of which are let. The upper residential floors were previously sold on a long leasehold basis.

At Cowbridge Road, Cardiff, the lease to Royal Mail for use as a Sorting Centre has expired and negotiations for a new short-term lease are in progress. A revised planning application for a new retail and residential building is currently being prepared.

The company occupies its own freehold offices in Egham. Following extensive refurbishment of a residential freehold property in Egham agents have been appointed to market for sale.

CAMPMOSS PROPERTY COMPANY LIMITED & SUBSIDIARIES

During the first half of the financial year Campmoss continued to actively manage their property portfolio including new lettings, preparation of new planning applications to existing freehold buildings, completion of development projects and sales and lettings of the residential portfolio.

The majority of retail tenants are those located at Market Street Bracknell, Berkshire close to the main railway station and adjacent to the recently developed Lexicon Shopping Centre. Whilst a number of essential retail outlets remain open for business those that have closed their operations should be eligible to access Government Grants and other Business support packages.

Alston House, Market Street, Bracknell, comprises of ten retail units on ground and first floor and twelve residential units on the second and third floor. Six retail units are now let to local businesses leaving four currently available. Six of the residential units have been let on Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements with the remaining six apartments available for sale or letting.

I would draw shareholders attention to my earlier comments regarding the group's ongoing contact with retail tenants and practical measures to assist with cash flow where necessary.

At Britannia Wharf, Woking, development of the recently approved 52 residential apartment scheme has commenced with completion, subject to any further government measures, expected by the end of 2021. The construction, funded by Campmoss, is being undertaken as a joint venture with a well-known Surrey based construction and development company.

At Clivemont House, Clivemont Road, Maidenhead, planning permission was recently granted for a residential scheme totalling 80 apartments. Discussions are currently in progress to ascertain the group's future plans for this site.

At The Priory, Stomp Road, Burnham, the 26,000 sq. ft. building comprises 17,000 sq. ft. new office space over three floors and an adjoining Business Centre occupying 9,000 sq. ft. The new offices are let on medium term leases with break clauses whilst part of the Business Centre is available. Alternative uses for the property are currently being considered.

STAFF

I wish to take this opportunity on behalf of shareholders to thank our small management team for their support in these challenging and unprecedented times. Liaising and managing our tenant portfolio and actively responding to the fast changing environment is vital to the continued success of the group.

RELATIONSHIP AGREEMENT

The Company has entered into a written and legally binding Relationship Agreement with myself, its controlling shareholder, to address the requirements of LR9.2.2AD of the Listing Rules.

OUTLOOK

Allowing partial or total release from current lockdown measures will be vitally important in restoring business confidence and encouraging a return to a growing and vibrant economy.

The group's development programme is funded from our own existing resources and it will be important for the government to implement measures as soon as practically possible to encourage activity in the residential and commercial property market.

In these unpredictable times I look forward to reporting further at the year end.

Statement of Responsibility

FOR THE SIX MONTHSED 31 MARCH 2020

The directors are responsible for preparing the condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 March 2020 and they confirm, to the best of their knowledge and belief, that:

-- the condensed consolidated set of interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 March 2020 has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the EU;

   --      the interim management report includes a fair review of the information required by: 

a) DTR 4.2.7R of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules, being an indication of important events that have occurred during the first six months of the financial year and their impact on the condensed set of interim financial statements and a description of the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the year; and

b) DTR 4.2.8R of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules, being related party transactions that have taken place in the first six months of the current financial year and that have materially affected the financial position or performance of the group during that period; and any changes in the related party transactions described in the last annual report that could do so.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 31 MARCH 2020

1. Basis of preparation

This condensed set of financial statements has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting as adopted by the EU.

The annual financial statements of the group are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the EU. As required by the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority, the condensed set of financial statements has been prepared applying the accounting policies and presentation that were applied in the preparation of the group's published consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 September 2019.

The comparative figures for the financial year ended 30 September 2019 are not the group's statutory accounts for that financial year. Those accounts have been reported on by the group's auditor and delivered to the registrar of companies. The report of the auditor was: unqualified; did not give any reference to any matters to which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report; and did not contain a statement under sections 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

Accounting policies

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared applying the accounting policies that will be applied in the preparation of the group's financial statements for the year ended 30 September 2020.

The only change to International Financial Reporting Standards which is relevant to the group which have arisen since the last year end is the implementation of IFRS 16 (Leases). The directors have concluded that the impact of this new Standards is unlikely to be material to the Group and, consequently, in all other respects these condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the group's financial statements for the year ended 30 September 2020.

Use of estimates and judgement

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected. The key areas in which estimates have been used and the assumptions applied are in valuing investment properties and properties in the joint venture, in valuing available for sale assets, in classifying properties and in the calculating of provisions.

An external, independent valuer, having an appropriate recognised professional qualification and recent experience in the location and category of property being valued, values the company's property portfolio at the end of each financial year. The directors of the joint venture value its portfolio each year; such valuation takes into account yields on similar properties in the area, vacant space and covenant strength. The directors of the group and joint venture review the valuations for the interim financial statements.

A provision is recognised in the balance sheet when the group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of a past event and it is probable that an outflow of economic benefit will be required to settle the obligation. If the effect is material, provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and, where appropriate, the risks specific to the liability.

Going concern

The group has sufficient financial resources to enable it to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future, to complete the current maintenance and development programme and meet its liabilities as they fall due. Accordingly, the directors consider it appropriate to continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing these interim financial statements.

2. Segmental analysis

The group manages its operations in two segments, being property and other investments and property development.

The operations of the group are not seasonal.

3. Taxation

The tax position for the six-month period is estimated on the basis of the anticipated tax rates applying for the full year.

4. Dividends

The interim dividend of 4.8p per share will be paid on 2 July 2020 to shareholders on the register on 29 May 2020. Under accounting standards this dividend is not included in the condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 March 2020.

5. Earnings per share

Earnings per share has been calculated using the profit after tax for the period of GBP309,000 (March 2019: GBP251,000; September 2019: GBP1,013,000) and the weighted average number of shares as follows:
