Datacash Group PLC 11 April 2006 Tuesday 11th April 2006 DataCash Group Plc: DATA / Index: AIM / Sector: Support Services DATACASH GROUP PLC ('DataCash' or 'the Company') FINAL RESULTS DataCash Group Plc, the AIM listed payments service provider, announces its results for the 12 months to 31 December 2005. Overview • Adjusted pre-tax profit* up 66% to £2.53m (2004: £1.52m) - equivalent to an underlying EPS of 5.65p (2004: 3.40p) • Turnover up 32% to £6.12m (2004: £4.64m) • Cash balance of £4.90m (11p per share) (2004: £3.21m) • Continued strong growth of the core Card Holder Not Present transaction processing business - transaction volumes increased by more than 50% year-on-year to 63 million • Strong growth from retail and gaming customers • Ongoing investment in technology infrastructure and new product offerings • High profile contract wins in 2006 and a healthy pipeline of target customers • Increased dividend payment of 0.75p per share recommended (2004: 0.50p) which is payable on 16 June 2006 to shareholders on the register at 12 May 2006. • Board looks forward to the future with confidence. * before goodwill amortisation, National Insurance provision on share option gain and exceptional items. Contacts: Keith Butcher Finance Director, DataCash Group Plc 0870 7274760 Isabel Crossley St Brides Media & Finance Ltd 020 7242 4477 Chairman's Statement DataCash Group plc made further good progress in 2005, with pre-tax profits, before amortisation of goodwill, NI provision on share option gains and exceptionals ('Adjusted pre-tax profits') rising more than 60% to £2.53m (2004: £1.52m) and cash balances growing by £1.69m to £4.90m (2004: £3.21m). The Board is pleased to recommend a 50% increase in the dividend for the year to 0.75p (2004: 0.50p). Turnover grew by more than 30% from £4.64m to £6.12m in 2005, reflecting the continued growth of the core business of Card Holder Not Present transaction processing. Costs also increased (by 17%) as we invested in our core technology infrastructure and in our sales function. Adjusted pre-tax profits grew by £1m to £2.53m (2004: £1.52m) and underlying earnings per share were 5.65p (2004: 3.40p). We continue to benefit from accumulated tax losses. Transaction growth remained strong, rising by 22m to 63m (2004: 41m), with particular progress from our retail customers, reflecting the increasing willingness of UK consumers to buy on-line and the increased penetration of broadband. The gaming market, which provides in excess of 50% of all our transactions, continued to see good growth. Our strategy of using skills we have developed to support the gaming sector to broaden our wider market opportunity has been vindicated. We are confident of further significant growth in all our target markets in 2006. The strategy of offering a complete service to merchants, and not to restrict ourselves to the online world, has taken some considerable investment and, so far, has generated very little return. However, we are now seeing a growing acceptance of the benefits of our approach and are confident the opportunity we identified more than two years ago will make a contribution. Product and infrastructure development saw significant investment in 2005 and this will continue into 2006. The Group also sought to broaden its position both in terms of product and geographical penetration which included an aborted acquisition. Unfortunately, the due diligence process revealed issues that meant the deal could not be consummated upon the terms previously agreed. The cost of this is shown as an exceptional item of £402,000. Andrew Dark joined the Group in January 2006 as CEO, bringing considerable experience of payment systems. Andrew has already made a very positive contribution and we welcome him to the Group. I would like to thank all the employees of DataCash, especially Jane Reedy, who was a Board director until May 2005 and who will retire shortly, for their contribution during 2005, a year that saw good progress towards achieving our strategic goals. The Board looks forward with confidence and expectations of good revenue and profits growth in 2006. David Bailey Chairman

Just drifting through. BLT - yes. Any shares repurchased within 30 days are matched against that earlier sale for capital gains tax purposes (unless the shares sold earlier were purchased that same day). So if you rebuy lower, you have crystallised an immediate profit for capital gains on the sale up to 30 days earlier, and the original purchase from the year before runs on.

Just had a thought: there is a useful FBB thread on Capital Gains Tax (epic CGT) where clever people often know the answer to questions like yours....might be worth posting your query there.

Sorry, BLT, but I haven't the slightest idea. Mr. Brown has made our tax regime (particularly CGT) so complicated that even many people working in the Inland Revenue have admitted to me that they don't understand the rules either!

Is it correct that an AIM share that is sold, but subsequently repurchased within 30 days is deemed to be neutral with regards to business taper relief ? Example :- AIM share purchased {100,000 shares} in April 2003 and then sold in October 2004....meaning 1 year + holding period i.e. 50% BTR.... The shares were then repurchased within 30 days....and then sold a year later....meaning a total holding period of more than 2 years i.e. 100% BTR.... My point being that if you repurchase AIM shares within the 30 days that the business taper relief {BTR} is maintained....is this true ? Any comments ?
