Disposal of Holding in Frontier IP Group Plc


Transfer of Fund Management Contracts


Sigma, the residential and urban regeneration specialist, is pleased to announce that, following the Placing announced yesterday, it has completed a further two transactions, which leave the Group better positioned and wholly focused on its property-related activities. These transactions are detailed below.


Sale of balance of shareholding in Frontier IP Group Plc


Sigma is pleased to report that on 20 December 2013 it sold the balance of its shareholding in Frontier IP Group Plc, 600,000 ordinary shares of 10p each. This has generated net proceeds of £120,000 and a profit of £60,000.


Transfer of Fund Management Contracts


In line with Sigma's stated objective of withdrawing from its venture capital fund management activities, we are also pleased to report today that we transferred the management of three of our venture capital funds to Shackleton Ventures Limited together with the business advisory contracts of certain of the investee companies.  Sigma continues to be a limited partner in the funds which have been transferred and so retains its investment in those funds.



Graham Barnet, chief executive of Sigma, commented,


"The disposal of our remaining shareholding in Frontier IP and the transfer of three of our venture capital funds help towards completion of the process of refocusing the Group entirely on our property activities."
