CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

 

On 9 June 2010, Northwest Investment Group Ltd. ("NWIG" or "the Company") raised £3 million from investors and was successfully admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange.

 

During the first half of 2017, we remained in contact with two potential projects relating to a possible investment and the Board of Directors continues its endeavours to identify suitable high-quality assets to be injected into NWIG.

 

The Board reports that it continues to manage cash prudently with shareholder's funds. Operating and Administrative expenses total £281,655 for the period, and a net cash at bank position of £558,551 as at 30 June 2017.

 

At the Company's annual general meeting held on 25 July 2017, shareholders approved the Company's Investing Policy in preference to a potential liquidation.

9    EARNING PER SHARE

 

The calculation of the basic earning per share is based on the profits attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares in issue during the period.

 

The calculation of diluted earning per share is based on the basic earning per share, adjusted to allow for the issue of shares and the post tax effect of dividends and/or interest, on the assumed conversion of all dilutive options and other dilutive potential ordinary shares.

 

Reconciliation of the earning and weighted average number of share used in the calculations are set out below.
