Accsys Technologies' operations comprise three principal business units: (i) the Accoya® wood production facility located in Arnhem, The Netherlands; (ii) technology development, focused on a programme of continuous improvements to the process engineering and operating protocols for the acetylation of wood which are currently under development and the development of technology for the acetylation of wood fibre; and (iii) the licensing of technology for the production of Accoya® wood and Tricoya® wood elements across the globe. Accoya® Wood is produced by using a proprietary, non-toxic process that effectively converts sustainably grown softwoods and non-durable hardwoods into what is best described as a 'high technology wood' via acetylation. Distinguished by its durability, dimensional stability and, perhaps most importantly of all, its reliability (in terms of consistency of both supply and quality), Accoya® wood is particularly suited to exterior applications where performance and appearance are valued. Unlike most woods, its colour does not degrade when exposed to sunlight. Moreover, the Accoya® wood production process does not compromise the wood's strength or machinability. The combination of UV resistance, dimensional stability, increased coatings life, durability and retained strength means that Accoya® wood offers a wealth of new opportunities to architects, designers and specifiers. Leading applications include external doors and windows, shutters/shading, siding and cladding, decking, outdoor furniture/equipment and glulam beams for structural use. Tricoya® Wood Elements is Accsys Technologies' proprietary technology for the acetylation of wood fibres, chips, and particles for use in the fabrication of wood based composites, including panel products. These composites demonstrate enhanced durability and dimensional stability which allow them to be used in a variety of applications which were once limited to solid wood or man-made products. Tricoya® Wood Elements is lauded as the first major innovation in the wood composites industry in more than 30 years. Wood Acetylation is a process, which increases the amount of 'acetyl' molecules in wood, thereby changing its physical properties. The environmentally responsible process protects wood from rot by making it 'inedible' to most micro-organisms and insects, without - unlike conventional treatments - making it toxic. It also greatly reduces the wood's tendency to swell and shrink, making it less prone to cracking and ensuring that, when painted, it requires dramatically reduced maintenance. Acetylated wood's increased durability offers major carbon sequestration advantages, compared to other woods and man-made building materials such as steel, vinyl, and plastic. Wood Composites include a range of derivative wood products which are manufactured by binding together the strands, particles, fibres, or veneers of wood together with adhesives to form composite materials

  • Alent plc was demerged from Cookson plc and is a leading global supplier of specialty chemicals (advanced surface treatment plating chemicals and electronics assembly materials) used in the global electronics production industry and also in automotive and other industrial markets. The specialty chemicals industry is characterised by companies focusing on customised specialty materials that are generally important for the end application but represent only a relatively small share of customers' overall production costs. Specialty chemical materials are used in a broad range of end-markets, including, for example, the electronic, automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, plastics, personal care, coatings, aerospace and agrochemical industries. Specialty chemical businesses typically have close customer relationships and relatively high R&D intensity, and benefit from high barriers to entry. By contrast to bulk or commodity chemical products, specialty chemical products are generally tailored to meet specific customer requirements and are primarily sold based on the value they add to a customer's manufacturing process or final product. Therefore, in the specialty chemicals industry, relationships with customers tend to be closer as compared to bulk or commodity chemicals businesses. The timely introduction of new and enhanced applications is a key driver of future growth, and higher-growth specialty chemicals players tend to benefit from underlying shifts in technology in their end-markets. Electronics component manufacturers are dependent on specialty chemical materials to drive their technology to the next level. For example, in the case of integrated circuit manufacturers, specialty chemical materials help facilitate the manufacture of smaller microchips with a higher transistor density. Therefore, although specialty chemical materials such as those supplied by Alent generally account for a small portion of total manufacturing costs, these products are critical in supporting technological development, ensuring product quality and allowing a customer to optimise its manufacturing processes.

Dundas has been proven to be the highest-grade mineral sand ilmenite project globally, with an initial Inferred mineral resource of 23.6Mt at 8.8% ilmenite (in situ) reported according to the JORC Code, including a high-grade zone equal to 7.9Mt at 14.2% ilmenite. Crucially significant further upside remains, as the resource forms part of a larger exploration target for the tested area of between 90Mt to 130Mt at an in-situ grade of between 6.3% and 8.4% ilmenite.

Furthermore, the mineral resource area covers just ~17% of the raised beach area and is only one of the following three main target areas situated along an >40km coastline.

  • Camper & Nicholsons Marina Investments Limited (CNMI) is a closed-ended investment company registered and incorporated in Guernsey that listed on AIM in January 2007. At the time of Listing CNMI was externally managed with a Manager, Marina Management International Ltd and an Investment Adviser, Camper & Nicholsons Marinas International Limited. CNMI raised €50m for the acquisition, development, redevelopment and operation of an international portfolio of both new and existing marinas and related real estate in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and the United States. In December 2008, CNMI internalised its management through the acquisition of the Manager and Investment Adviser with the acquisition of the latter also adding a new revenue stream from the management of 3rd party marinas and attendant consultancy work. At the same time CNMI acquired the rights in perpetuity to use the Camper & Nicholsons brand name in the marina sector. Current research indicates that demand continues to exceed supply for marina berths. At the same time new marina development is restricted due to geographical limitations, development costs, and environmental and planning rules. Over the past few years there has been an explosion in global yacht production and consequently demand for marina berths has increased, resulting in a steady rise in berthing rates, particularly around the Mediterranean. CNMI aims to consolidate a highly fragmented market and deliver a compelling investment case for marinas as an undervalued asset class.

  • Churchill Mining plc plans to leverage off the growth currently being experienced in China and India and in particular their appetite for raw materials used as feedstock in their burgeoning energy and steel industries. Churchill's growth plan quickly accelerated in 2007-2008 following the discovery of a very large thermal coal deposit (Churchill 75% owner) in the East Kutai Regency of Kalimantan, Indonesia. To date more than 1.41 billion tonnes of coal has been drilled to JORC standard and the project area explored only represents 20% of the Company's total land holding in the Regency.

  • Ferrum Crescent Limited is an Australian company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. The Company seeks to capitalise on the future demand for iron and steel worldwide by producing iron products in the Republic of South Africa, for both the domestic and the export markets. Ferrum Crescent will maximise the beneficiation of iron ore product locally in line with the objectives of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act 2002 (South Africa). During the recent global rush for iron ore resources, South Africa, a relatively under-developed market, has been largely overlooked, prompting Ferrum to identify and pursue opportunities in South Africa. To that end, the Company has acquired a controlling interest in a South African company that holds the rights to significant iron ore deposits in South Africa. The Turquoise Moon Iron Project consists of two separate iron ore (magnetite) occurrences, the Moonlight Deposit and the De Loskop Prospect. The Moonlight Deposit consists of coarse-grained magnetite-quartz rocks that display the following features which set it apart from comparable magnetite deposits: * The ability to produce very high quality concentrates at a coarse grind size; * Exceptionally low level of detrimental elements in the concentrates; * Near surface mineralisation; * Low stripping ratios. The mineralisation is close to surface and consequently represents a low stripping ratio target with consequential mining cost benefits. The contained iron within the maiden Indicated Resource is sufficient to exceed 20 years' production. The Company also holds an interest in the De Loskop Prospect, which is located approximately 150k east of Moonlight and only 50k north of Polokwane, the regional service centre. The prospect contains a huge iron exploration target at a grade of between 30% Fe and 40% Fe. Being close to Polokwane, the De Loskop prospect has good infrastructure nearby and will be explored by the Company in greater detail in the near future.

The Group complements its proprietary software products and solutions with the provision of maintenance, enhancements and support, together with expertise in consulting and implementation, to provide a complete offering to its clientele. Core transactional systems are the backbone applications of an organisation, the systems that are required to be in place to run the day-to-day operations of the different departments within a business, as well as interface with other systems such as finance and human resources. Business intelligence aims to improve business insight to support better business decision-making by increasing the quality, reliability and visibility of information. In a worldwide survey conducted by Gartner, business intelligence was ranked first in the top ten technology priorities for CIO's in 2012, and the same sentiments were echoed in an Asia focused survey conducted by Gartner. Fusionex operates principally in the Asia Pacific region, where IT spend is estimated by IDC to grow at a CAGR of 5.2 per cent. to US$681 billion in 2016 and the Directors believe that Fusionex is well placed to capitalise on this growth by providing customers with solutions which render a lower Total Cost of Ownership and a quicker Return on Investment. Fusionex also successfully markets outside of the Asia Pacific region, with all non-Asia Pacific revenues accounting for approximately 24 per cent of total Fusionex Group revenues in the 12 months to 30 September 2012.

  • Gulf Marine Services plc has become the leading provider of advanced self-propelled self-elevating support vessels (SESVs) in the world. The fleet serves the oil, gas and renewable energy industries from its offices in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and the United Kingdom. The Group's assets are capable of serving clients' requirements across the globe, including the Middle East, South East Asia, West Africa and Europe. The GMS core fleet of 13 SESVs is amongst the youngest in the industry, with an average age of seven years. The vessels support GMS' clients in a broad range of offshore oil and gas platform refurbishment and maintenance activities, well intervention work and offshore wind turbine maintenance work (which are opex-led activities), as well as offshore oil and gas platform installation and decommissioning and offshore wind turbine installation (which are capex-led activities). The SESVs are four-legged vessels and are self-propelled, which means they do not require tugs or similar support vessels for moves between locations in the field; this makes them significantly more cost-effective and time-efficient than conventional offshore support vessels without self-propulsion.
  • Gulfsands Petroleum plc is an independent oil and gas exploration, development and production group based in Houston, Texas. It owns a 50% working interest and is operator of Block 26 in North East Syria. The Khurbet East oil field was discovered in June 2007 and commenced commercial production in July 2008 only 13 months after the discovery. A second field discovery, the Yousefieh field, was brought on-stream in April 2010. Prior to the introduction of European Union sanctions on Syria, these fields were producing at an average combined production in excess of 24,000 barrels of oil per day. As a consequence of the introduction of additional EU sanctions on Syria's oil and gas sector, on 11th December, 2011, the Company issued a notice of 'force majeure' in respect of its oil production activities on Block 26 and has ceased to have an active participation in those oil production activities, while remaining entitled to receive a share of the revenues generated from oil produced from these fields if production continues under the supervision of the Syrian government's General Petroleum Corporation. Updates on Block 26 oil production activities will be the subject of separate news releases. Block 26 covers approximately 5,414 km2 and encompasses existing fields which currently produce over 100,000 barrels of oil per day, and are operated mainly by the Syrian Petroleum Company. The current exploration license expires in August 2012. Gulfsands' working interest 2P reserves in Syria at 31 December 2010 were 53.6 mmbbls. In Tunisia, Gulfsands is acquiring working interest positions in two exploration permits in Tunisia (Chorbane and Kerkouane Permits) and one exploration permit in Southern Italy (G.R15.PU) from ADX Energy Ltd the operator of all three permits. The Company's interest in these permits remains subject to the completion of the Company's farm obligations and various approvals from the governments of Tunisia and Italy. In Iraq, Gulfsands signed a Memorandum of Understanding in January 2005 with the Ministry of Oil in Iraq for the Maysan Gas Project in Southern Iraq, following completion of a feasibility study on the project, and is negotiating details of a definitive contract for this regionally important development. The project will gather, process and transmit natural gas that is currently a waste by-product of oil production and as a result of the present practice of gas flaring, contributes to significant environmental damage in the region. The Company is actively engaged in discussions with respect to financing and potential equity partners. Gulfsands has no reserves in Iraq. In the Gulf of Mexico USA, the Company owns interests in 30 leases offshore Texas and Louisiana, which include 20 producing oil and gas fields with proved and probable working interest reserves at 31 December 2010 of 3.2 mmboe (figures adjusted for the disposal of non-core properties in December 2010).

  • Hadrian's Wall Secured Investments Limited will, using a targeted investment strategy, focus on market segments which are and, in the opinion of the Investment Adviser, will continue to be, under-served by the mainstream banking sector. In particular, HWSIL's lending and investment activities will be primarily focused on the secured SME lending market within the UK. The Investment Adviser believes that this market segment continues to be under-served due to the combination of relatively modest individual loan size and the need for skilled credit analysis, which has caused other alternative lenders to focus their efforts elsewhere. Through a combination of skilled investment analysis, the experience of the Investment Adviser's investment team and a focus on under-served lending segments, the Company believes that it is well positioned to capitalise on this opportunity.

  • Harvest Minerals Limited is a South American focused fertiliser Company targeting low cost, near term development projects. The Company's primary focus is the development of its 100% owned Arapua Fertiliser Project from which it produces its KPfértil product, a proven, multi-nutrient, slow release, organic fertiliser and remineraliser, which is produced from a weathered potassium and phosphate rich lava and offers many economic and agronomic benefits. Covering 14,946 hectares and located in the heart of the Brazilian agriculture belt in Minas Gerais, Arapua is a shallow, low cost mine with an indicated and inferred resource of 13.07Mt at 3.1% K2O and 2.49% P2O5. This resource translates into a mine life of over 100 years at a rate of 450k tonnes per annum and crucially is based on drilling just 6.7% of the known mineralisation, leaving significant upside potential. With a trial mining licence in place allowing Harvest to extract 50kt of product on a rolling basis, whilst the full mining licence application process is underway, and official registration of KPfértil as a remineraliser expected by the end of 2017, Harvest is ideally placed to address the significant demand for locally produced fertiliser in Brazil; Brazil has abundant agricultural land but lacks domestic fertiliser, with the country currently importing 90% of the potash it uses. Furthermore, the Brazilian government has set a target to be self-sufficient in fertilisers by 2020, creating significant market opportunity for Harvest and its KPfértil product.

The enlarged Group's assets consist of oil palm and rubber plantations (both majority and minority held) in Indonesia and Malaysia, the latter with real-estate development value, and beef-cattle interests in Australia. The Group's strategy is to exit from its plantation investments in Malaysia within the next five or so years. These assets have, in varying degrees, considerable real-estate value due to their proximity either to the North-South Highway or to conurbations. However, the earnings derived from them are modest and, in the board's view, the time has come when they should be disposed of as and when acceptable prices can be achieved. It is the board's intention to undertake a substantial expansion in Indonesian plantation ventures which should achieve higher returns and will supplement the existing portfolio of majority and minority-held plantation investments in that country.
