Craven House Capital Plc

("Craven House" or the "Company")

Unaudited Interim Report for the period ended 30 November 2018

INVESTMENT MANAGER'S REPORT FOR THE SIX MONTH PERIODED 30 NOVEMBER 2018

For the unaudited six months to 30 November 2018, Craven House Capital ended the period with a Net Asset Value of $21,426,000 which equates to $8.57 per share. This represents a decrease of $3,439,000 from the NAV reported at the year ending May 2018. This change was largely the result of mark-to-market prices of liquid securities we intend to hold for an extended period of time. During the period the company acquired a significant asset in the shares of IIU, Inc. This acquisition marks our first significant presence in the United States. As mentioned in previous communications we see the US as an attractive investment destination given the global investment markets and the current stage of the debt and business cycles. We remain concerned about asset values in emerging markets and Europe and have a current preference for smaller private and listed enterprises in North America. It remains a difficult environment for value investors, however, we have recently identified what we believe are pockets of opportunity.

Portfolio Update

The summary of the valuations of Craven's investment holdings as at the period end is as follows;

DLC Holdings Corp. (TSX:DLC)

DLC Holdings Corp. is a primary investment subsidiary focused on agricultural related investments in Brazil and South Africa. As a micro-cap listed company, its share price can fluctuate significantly without any change to the intrinsic value of the company. Despite the shares trading recently at CAD $0.25 per share on significant volume, the shares closed the period at CAD $0.15 resulting in an accounting valuation significantly lower than the prior period. We remain highly confident in the long term value of DLC's current portfolio and in the listed platform providing a platform to consolidate other assets.

Craven House Angola LDA.

Craven House Angola is primarily engaged in the provision of working capital, as previously announced, to successful European and US entrepreneurs operating in Angola for many years. Oil revenues comprise the vast majority of Angola's foreign currency earnings and a multi-year weakness in the oil price has created a scarcity of foreign currency within the banking system. As a result, good companies have had to seek funding beyond the traditional banks to finance imports. We are fortunate to have good partners in Angola who have managed the difficult operating environment profitably. The recent peaceful transition of political power combined with higher oil prices have increased the likelihood of an economic recovery. While we believe this does not present a threat to our capital it is a threat to continued profitability and margins. Should capital controls be reduced or lifted our funds will no longer be needed by our partners. If this were to happen we would need to find an alternative opportunity to deploy capital or seek to expatriate funds. It is important to note that our investment success in Angola is primarily the result of an economic anomaly created by exogenous forces rather than business acumen or operational expertise.

INVESTMENT MANAGER'S REPORT FOR THE SIX MONTH PERIODED

30 NOVEMBER 2018

Qeton Ltd

Qeton is a trading company which specialises in the purchase of globally sourced products for importation into capital constrained economies. At present the focus is on consumer goods and industrial products into Angola where capital controls continue to add significant friction to funds flow and trade. Our relationship with on the ground operators in the region provide insights into the shifting market dynamics. The current economic and political situation remains positive for Qeton, however, this could change at any moment if the Kwanza becomes more freely convertible or capital controls are lifted entirely. Should this happen we would seek to repatriate capital from Angola for investment elsewhere.

Craven House Capital North America LLC

As mentioned above, the United States is becoming an investment focus for Craven House. Our holding in IIU, Inc. has been rewarding as is demonstrated by the transaction announced on January 17, 2019 with LM Funding America, Inc. Additionally, we are finding investment opportunities in small-cap and micro-cap listed securities traded on the NYSE and NASDAQ. These companies have largely been abandoned by investors as market dynamics have moved towards passive index funds and other structured products. Additionally, many US brokerages restrict shareholders buying shares trading at less than $5 or with a market capitalisation of under $50 million. We believe this presents significant opportunities as many of these very small listed companies are trading at a discount to their orderly liquidation value and/or intrinsic value.

Kwikbuild Corp.

As mentioned in previous communication we are bearish on South Africa given the political and economic climate. Our portfolio in South Africa is in the process of being liquidated and we intend to allocate the capital elsewhere. Fortunately, the bulk of our portfolio consists of debt secured by assets and the proceeds can be freely repatriated through the banking system unless further currency controls are enacted. This is not an insignificant risk given the state of the South African economy.

Reduction in Capital

We continue to move forward with the legal process to buy back Craven House shares for cancellation. However, given the current share price combined with the expected liquidity over then next year, we expect share buybacks to be a central aspect of our capital allocation process until such time as the share price closes the gap with the intrinsic value of the company. Craven House has consistently issued shares at a premium and will endeavour to buy back as many shares as are available at a discount. As highlighted in the May 2018 year-end accounts, the Board will continue to assess the value of the AIM quote and will provide any material updates to shareholders in due course.

Transaction after the end of period

After the period, Craven House announced a significant transaction with LM Funding America, Inc. (NASDAQ:LMFA) whereby LMFA would acquire IIU, Inc in a transaction which will likely result in Craven House becoming the controlling shareholder in the Nasdaq listed company. The conversion of funds due following the sale in common stock of LMFA requires shareholder approval from LMFA shareholders and is not certain. Should LMFA shareholder approval be granted, Craven House will have another listed subsidiary, with high market liquidity which could serve as a platform for further growth. The likely result will be that Craven House's primary holdings will be two subsidiary listed companies in LMFA and DLC Holdings with the balance of the portfolio comprised of African related assets concentrated in loan portfolios in Angola and South Africa and a trading company focused on the export of consumer and industrial products to Angola.

   5. Called up share capital (continued) 
    The aggregate nominal values of the ordinary and deferred shares 
    include exchange differences arising from the translation of shares 
    at historic rates and the translation at the rate prevailing at 
    the date of the change in functional currency. 
    The deferred shares carry no entitlement to receive notice of any 
    general meeting, to attend, speak or vote at such general meeting. 
    Holders are not entitled to receive dividends, and on a winding 
    up of the Company holders of deferred shares are entitled to a return 
    of capital only after the holder of each Ordinary share has received 
    a return of capital together with a payment of GBP1 million per 
    share. The deferred shares may be cancelled at any time for no consideration 
    by way of a reduction in capital. 
    In the year ended 31 May 2018, the Company extended the time scale
