Dear Shareholder,

 

I present the Chairman's report for the financial period ending 30 June 2016, where the Company reported a net loss of £13,913 (0.52p per share) and as at 30 June 2016 had liquid cash balances of £1,034,582.

 

During this financial period the Board has continued to actively evaluate a number a potential transactions across a variety of different sectors. At this time no formal agreement has been entered into by the Company however the Board remains focused on delivering a transaction that brings both value and growth potential to the Shareholders of Auctus Growth in the near term.

 

Costs continue to be prudently monitored and are in line with the previously announced budget of £35,000 per annum. The Directors continue to draw no fees from the Company.

 

Finally the Board would like to thank Shareholders for their continued patience and support. Further updates will be provided in due course in regard to the future plans for the Company.
