CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

 

Introduction

 

I am pleased to present the unaudited interim results for the period ended 31 December 2017. Baskerville floated on the standard segment of the Official List and was admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange on 22 September 2017, with the remit to invest in the technology sector.   

 

During this interim period, Baskerville recorded a loss of £50,696, being the minimal running costs of the Company. Cash assets at period end were nearly £1.7 million with no debts. 

 

Outlook

 

We continue to consider a number of potential investments within the technology sector.  When we have identified a company that has the potential to create significant shareholder value, we will update the market.
