From the CEO Statement in the Interims... Recent News I want to offer some comments on our recent announcement that we have parted company with Philip Rodrigs. We have said as much as we intend about the situation itself. In general, the reaction from clients and investors has been understanding and measured, but in one or two instances some questions have been raised over whether this represents a cultural issue in the firm. It is this issue I want to address. Every business will suffer issues such as these, even great firms. The test of a business is not its avoidance of them - which is impossible - but rather the way it navigates them when they arrive. The strength of a business to deal with such issues is influenced significantly by the quality of its culture and the unity its people can demonstrate in working through issues. We take our culture and conduct very seriously. It is critical in a business model where we are focused on helping clients fully understand their needs and then solving them. As a result, when we encounter threats to these areas our approach is to deal with them decisively and openly. This is important in a business that is based on openness and transparency with its clients and its people. But a consequence of this approach is that it is very clear to everyone when an issue has arisen. There is little we can do about this - the alternative is far worse for the long term success of the business. I would therefore encourage investors to see this for what we consider it to be - an issue to be navigated by a business that is otherwise on a strong long term growth path and one which represents our determination to hold everyone in the Group to the same high standard, regardless of position.

Financial Highlights · Statutory net profit after tax was £9.1m, compared to £6.1m for the six months ended 31 December 2016, an increase of 49% primarily due to growth in management fees and performance fees. · Statutory basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were 11.34 pence per share and 10.53 pence per share, compared to 7.41 pence and 7.40 pence respectively for the six months ended 31 December 2016. · Adjusted profit after tax1 was £9.6m, an increase of 17% compared to £8.2m for the six months ended 31 December 2016. · Adjusted basic and diluted EPS2 were 11.99 and 11.13 pence per share, compared to 10.03 pence and 10.02 pence respectively for the six months ended 31 December 2016. · The Board of Directors have declared an interim dividend of 7.6 pence per share, of which 2.2 pence is a special dividend and relates to net performance fees.

Artemis Investment Management, Hargreave Hale, BNY Mellon’s Newton Investment Management and River & Mercantile Asset Management were named on Wednesday in the Financial Conduct Authority’s first so-called statement of objections, a formal step in antitrust probes that lays out initial findings of alleged rule breaches. The companies ultimately risk fines of as much as 10 per cent of their worldwide turnover in a particular market if the FCA proves its case, which it opened in 2015. A number of individuals also face investigation under the FCA’s financial-regulatory rather than competition powers, people familiar with the case said. The case turns on small-cap companies’ IPOs in 2014 and 2015. By allegedly colluding rather than competing on price, the asset managers may have pushed down the value at which the companies were listed. The FCA alleged that Newton, Hargreave Hale and River & Mercantile disclosed or accepted information on prices relating to one IPO and a placing, while Artemis and Newton shared information on prices they were willing to pay in relation to another offering...

As a business we are now far stronger in every way - depth of people, scale and skills, and breadth of clients - and as a result we have refreshed our strategy to reflect this. Our ambition for growth continues, but we will remain focused on our central idea, just applied to a broader range of markets, and with an emphasis on delivering returns."

Our client orientated solutions and low attrition rates have resulted in positive net flows in each of the last thirteen quarters since the IPO in 2014. We remain well positioned to continue this growth and will continue to invest in our operating platform, international capabilities and new product launches. This year has seen record aggregate performance fees of £12.5m and our investment platform has delivered strong performance across all of our divisions. I believe it is rare for any investment firm to have this consistency across product offerings, and that is testament to both the quality of our people and the focus of the business on those areas we are confident we can do well.
