lufc5: Tee hee. That is a good answer. I doubt all would agree with it, but it sure makes alot of sense to me. I am guilty of the average down scenario, but the majority are well researched stocks that I have got in at(what I think) a fair price, only to see it drop and to my mind make the buy in price even more of a bargain. Enjoy your evening and thanks again for your time. It is appreciated. Lufc5.

scburbs: scrabble, They have both been taken over. I think Urbium got taken out at around £9-10 and Chorion at about £4-5, both were nicely profitable for me, although I sold out of Chorion too early. Chorion also did a share consolidation. Chorion may have been a 1 for 30, but not certain on that. In respect of the split Urbium was the larger component although can't recall percentages. Your shares should be worth around £1,700 (assuming 1:50 and 1:30 is correct). Not sure how you go about realising that though.

sscrabble: Anyone with long memories- I have just found two old share certificates I had forgotten about for Chorion and Urbium - 10,000 shares at 1p - any idea if they have value and how much - ( I seem to remember urbium doing a one share for fifty so that is now probably only 200 shares )

torquay turk2: I will have a shot at answering this one but if anyone knows more/better then please feel free to correct me. 'Shorting'- say in connection with a CFD (contract for difference) means that someone has entered into an agreement to sell shares(which they do not yet own) on an agreed future date at an agreed price(the excercise price). They do this in the hope that in the meantime the value of the shares will drop and that they will be able to buy the shares at the lower price, thus making a profit, inorder to keep their original deal aka 'closing their position'. Going long means exactly the opposite ie they agree to buy shares at an agreed future point, at an agreed price in the hope that in the interim the value of the shares will rise above the excercise price. In summary, someone who is short expects the share price to go down and opposit for long. Hope that helps.

knarf: Interim Results RNS Number:4708R Chorion PLC 20 September 2005 September 20, 2005 Chorion PLC Results for the six months ended 30 June 2005 Highlights: * Operating profits (before exceptional costs) of #1.7m against #1.3m for 2004 * Pre-tax profits (before exceptional costs) level with 2004 at #1.1m * Over 100% growth in merchandising revenues, reflecting a full contribution from Mr Men and growth in Noddy merchandise * Adjusted EPS up 1.0p to 5.2p * Progress well underway for the launch of Mr Men and The Famous Five TV series for late 2006 and 2007 respectively * Eight new Agatha Christie films in production * Acquisition of Silver Lining Productions Ltd completed since half-year end Nicholas James, Chief Executive of Chorion, said: 'We are pleased with these results. Noddy will continue to be a core element in our growth, but we are increasingly confident in the role that other investments we have made in the last couple of years will play in our future. We expect Mr Men to hit your screens late in 2006 with a new series of The Famous Five following a year later. We are doubling our output of crime programming based around Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot and now have the Raymond Chandler franchise to work on. We are delighted by July's acquisition of Silver Lining Productions and what it will bring to our Children's Division. All in all, we remain confident that we will continue to deliver value for our shareholders.' Ends Enquiries: Chorion Nick James, Chief Executive 020 7061 3800 Portland Tim Allan 020 7404 5344 Chorion PLC Results for the six months ended 30 June 2005 Chief Executive's Review Chorion has made good progress in the first six months of 2005. Noddy has continued to perform well, we have taken direct control of the licensing programme for Mr Men and we have greatly strengthened our Children's Division with the acquisition of Silver Lining Productions and the licensing and merchandising rights that come with that acquisition. We have added to our Literary Estates business with the acquisition of the rights to Raymond Chandler and our Television and Film business has been boosted by the decision of ITV to double its order for Christie TV films in 2005, giving Chorion one of the largest drama production slates amongst UK independent TV producers. Financial Highlights Six months to 30 Six months to Year to June 2005 30 June 2004 December 2004 #m #m #m Turnover 7.4 7.6 23.9 Gross Profit 6.2 4.4 12.7 Operating Profit * 1.7 1.3 4.8 Profit before Tax * 1.1 1.1 4.1 Adjusted profit before tax * 1.8 1.5 5.2 (before amortisation of intangibles) (Loss)/Profit before tax (0.4) 1.1 4.1 Basic earnings per share (1.9)p 1.8p 7.1p Adjusted earnings per share * 5.2p 4.2p 12.4p (before amortisation of intangibles) * excluding exceptionals In the six months ended 30 June 2005, turnover at #7.4 million was slightly lower than the comparative period (2004: #7.6 million), while profits before tax and exceptional costs were in line with the previous year at #1.1 million. This comparison with the first six months of 2004 reflects the benefit of the Mr Men acquisition for the full period this year, while last year's interim turnover and profits included a contribution from the delivery of the TV film " Death on the Nile". In contrast, no new films were delivered in the first half of 2005 - six of the eight films now in production will be delivered in the second half of this year. The company's performance has always been weighted towards the second half of the year and with the prospects for Noddy and Mr. Men in Christmas 2005 and the six TV films which will be completed and delivered, we approach the second half of the year with good visibility of earnings. Adjusted profits before amortisation, exceptional costs and tax, for the six months, rose to #1.8 million (2004: #1.5 million). Underlying basic earnings per share rose to 5.2p from 4.2p the previous year. Children's Brands We have set ourselves five key objectives to be achieved in 2005. Our progress to date is as follows: 1. To secure co-production partners for the new Mr Men television series and to put the series into physical production for 2006/07 launch During the first half we have completed the first phase of our international brand research into the Mr Men brand. In particular the research has highlighted the affection for the Mr Men brand in the USA despite there having being no recent TV presence there. We have completed the shortlist of production studios for the new TV series and have had productive discussions with broadcasters in the major territories of the USA, UK and France. 2. To raise the global retail value of Noddy from #45 million to #65 million Noddy continues to grow in value in the core territories of the UK and France. France, in particular, is performing extremely well. For the first time, it is now possible that revenues from France will equal those from the UK by the year-end - a significant achievement. Combined growth in the UK and France will thus exceed our expectations this year. In the rest of Europe, Portugal continues to be a run away success and a Noddy live show will be launched there later this year. It will be the first pre-school property ever to have a live show in the country. Our plans to roll Noddy out in other countries in Europe have progressed more slowly, due primarily to a delay in the commencement of broadcasting of the TV series by our broadcaster customers. Broadcast has now commenced in Scandinavia and Benelux and the TV ratings are very good. The initial test broadcast period in Italy has now been completed and achieved a very strong 47% share. Outside of Europe, March/April saw launches of the Noddy TV series in Japan and Australia and July saw the launch in the USA. Overall we are pleased with the progress Noddy has made in the first half and we remain confident of meeting our target for the global retail value of Noddy by the end of 2005. 3. To successfully launch Noddy in the United States Make Way for Noddy launched on TV in the United States on 2nd July 2005. By mid September 62% of PBS stations were broadcasting the programme, including stations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadephia - the top four television markets in the USA. It is too early to obtain ratings for the show but the newspaper reviews that have appeared have all been extremely positive. The Noddy programme in America is being coordinated by FUNimation whom we appointed as the master licensee and video distributor. FUNimation remains confident that Noddy will achieve the good ratings necessary by the first quarter of 2006 to enable discussions to commence with the US licensing industry. 4. To put a new Children's TV series into production for 2006/07 launch During the first half we announced that we had put Famous Five into development as a co-production with Marathon, the leading animation company based in France. Early development is progressing well and we have strong preliminary interest from broadcasters in the core territories of the UK, France and Germany. 5. To identify additional children's properties for launch in 2007/08 It is our intention to identify the 2008 property by the end of 2005. Our acquisition in the first half of Silver Lining Productions Ltd and the rights they hold, together with the other children's rights in the Chorion stable, give us an excellent range to choose from. Other Children's Division News In the UK we have now achieved the full range of key licensing products for Noddy with the signing of a major wood play set deal with Wembley Playcraft that will help the further growth of Noddy in 2006 and beyond. Additionally, we have successfully licensed Egmont to produce a new Noddy magazine in the UK which we expect to perform significantly better than our previously licensed magazine. We have also completed the 100 two minute TV programmes, "Say It With Noddy", that introduces children to different languages in a fun and engaging way. As a result, we have concluded a deal with broadcaster five that will ensure that Noddy stays on air in the UK until 2012 . This is a significant vote of confidence in Noddy and great news for the visibility of the brand for the next 6 years. Mr. Men continues to perform to expectations. In the first half we concluded the early termination of the agency agreement with Copyright Promotions Group for a payment of #1.5m. This appears as an exceptional item in our accounts. Following this termination we were able to take full control of Mr. Men licensing. We currently have more than 80 licensees in the UK and the property continues to perform well, which gives us confidence about growth prospects when the merchandising is supported by a new TV series. Finally, the acquisition of Silver Lining Productions Ltd is a very exciting development for Chorion. It brings into Chorion's stable the licensing and television rights to a number of significant contemporary classic literary properties with potential for considerable growth in the future. Literary Estates We have set ourselves two key objectives to be achieved in 2005. Our progress to date is as follows: 1. To acquire more literary estates with growth potential We have completed the purchase of the Raymond Chandler literary rights, giving Chorion control of the legendary detective character, Philip Marlowe. Although this is a small publishing estate, the TV and film prospects for this brand offer good growth potential over the coming years. In the second half our objective is to make a further literary estate acquisition and we have already identified a number of opportunities. 2. To establish an in-house partwork resource to launch or develop a minimum of one new partwork each year We have recruited a partwork specialist and undertaken a review of the partwork opportunities that the company has in its portfolio of brands. Some of these opportunities are to publish partworks directly and some are opportunities to license partwork formats to other companies. Prior to carrying out this recruitment and opportunity review, we had planned to publish a new Poirot DVD partwork in the UK in 2005. During the review, it became clear that it would not be possible to undertake a full launch of this DVD partwork project this year due to the need for a longer planning and market testing programme than had been initially anticipated. Our plans now are to have a two-stage launch of the Poirot DVD partwork - in Scotland in September 2005, covering approximately 10% of the market for this product, and in the remainder of the UK in February 2006. As a result, we have reduced our second half revenue expectations from this project for 2005. Other Literary Estates News Publishing activities are on target this year. We expected publishing revenues for 2005 to be lower than 2004 as the one-off effect of the very successful Simenon centenary year in Europe - where book sales doubled in some countries - and income from the last editions of the Agatha Christie book partwork that ended in 2004 would both not repeat this year. The first half results reflect this position and are in line with management expectations. We have successfully licensed a new West End production of an Agatha Christie play. "And Then There Were None", Christie's most popular novel, has been adapted for the stage by the critically-acclaimed writer Kevin Elyot whose two pilot scripts for Poirot and Marple in 2003 and 2004 have helped us re-invigorate the TV franchise. The producer is ACT Productions and the production stars Tara Fitzgerald, Graham Crowden, Richard Johnson and Gemma Jones. The play will open in the West End in October and already has interest from Broadway. Television and Film We have set ourselves two key objectives to be achieved in 2005. Our progress to date is as follows: 1. To increase, above four, the number of television films commissioned in 2005 ITV has doubled its order in 2005 for Agatha Christie TV films. We are therefore producing four new Poirot TV films and four new Miss Marple TV films. This increase from four to eight reflects the significant rating and critical success that has been achieved with both the recent Poirot and the new Marple TV films. The success of the new Miss Marple films has also been reflected with a nomination for a Primetime Emmy in the USA. The production of eight TV films is a significant undertaking and makes Chorion one of the UK's larger independent TV drama production companies. We will be delivering six of these eight films in the second half of 2005 with the remaining two being delivered in early 2006. Our accounting policy is to recognise the revenues from these TV films upon delivery. 2. To develop new television films outside the Poirot and Marple franchise for 2006/07 The acquisition of the Raymond Chandler estate has brought the detective Philip Marlowe into the Chorion stable alongside Maigret, Campion and Fen. We are in active discussion in both the United States and the UK on the opportunities in this portfolio. Conclusion Our focus remains on continuing to build the value of all of our brands and content and to deliver further value to shareholders. In our Children's Division, our focus will be on the generation of further growth from Noddy and on moving forward the development and production plans for Mr Men and the Famous Five for delivery in late 2006 and 2007 respectively. In Literary Estates we will continue to expand the publishing programmes and to build on the work already started in the area of partworks. In TV and Film we will ensure the delivery of six more Christie TV films of high quality Staff Finally I would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work and enthusiasm. It is through their imagination and dedication that we continue to innovate with our brands, finding new avenues to exploit them in the interests of our shareholders.

The accounting policies adopted by Chorion PLC are consistent with those disclosed in the Report and Accounts of Chorion PLC for the year ended 31 December 2004, except as noted below. Changes in presentation (a) Presentation of preference shares Chorion PLC adopted the presentation provisions of FRS25 "Financial instruments:Disclosure and presentation" during the year, in accordance with which the 6% cumulative redeemable non-convertible preference shares have been presented wholly as debt due after more than one year. Prior to this they were included in equity. The impact of recognising the preference shares as debt on the balance sheet is to increase creditors falling due after more than one year by #4,500,000; ( 30 June: #4,500,000: 31 December 2004: #4,500,000) and to reduce non-equity share capital by the same amount for each period. The impact on the profit and loss account for the six months ended 30 June 2005 is to increase the interest charge by #135,000 (six months ended 30 June 2004: #25,000; year ended 31 December 2004: #161,000), and to decrease the dividends paid to non-equity shareholders by the same amount for each period. The change in presentation has had no impact on retained profit for the periods ended 30 June 2005, 30 June 2004 or 31 December 2004. (b) Presentation of fixed assets Following a review of accounting policies, the directors have concluded that it is more appropriate to present certain items previously capitalised as tangible fixed assets as other investments related to Film & TV investments. The effect of this decision on the balance sheet has been to increase the net book value of other investments related to Film & TV investments by #493,000 at 30 June 2005 (30 June 2004: #559,000; 31 December 2004: #536,000) and decrease the net book value of tangible fixed assets by the same amount for each period end. The effect on the profit and loss account has been to increase the amortisation of other investments related to Film & TV investments by #43,000 for the six months ended 30 June 2005 ( six months ended 30 June 2004: #23,000 ; year ended 31 December 2004: #47,000 ) and decrease the depreciation of tangible fixed assets by the same amount for each period. The change did not have any impact on the operating profit, retained profit or net assets for the periods ended 30 June 2005, 30 June 2004 or 31 December 2005. The profit and loss comparatives for the six months to 30 June 2004 have been re-stated by transferring amortisation of the Film & TV and other related investments from administrative expenses to cost of sales. This transfer reflects the accounting treatment adopted and disclosed in the accounts for the year ended 31 December 2004. The effect of this has been to increase the cost of sales for the six months ended 30 June 2004 by #2,877,000 and to decrease administrative expenses in the same period by the same period by #2,877,000.
