Outlook

Mr Terry Butler, Chief Executive Officer, said the six months for Dominion Finance Group (DFG) the operating company, was very satisfactory with revenue up 16.4% to $14.2 million and indications for the next 6 months were positive.

Total Assets had increased from $151 million as at 31 March 2005 to $168 million as at 30 September 2005. Shareholders Funds stood at $27.45 million. The interim fully imputed dividend of 2.7 cents per share is 23.8% higher than the interim dividend for the same period last year.

Enquiries for lending opportunities were still good but the Company had determined to maintain a greater level of liquidity and to manage organic growth to an acceptable level. The company had cash reserves and undrawn bank lines of over $21 million as at 30 September 2005. Dominion would continue to look for growth opportunities and had considered a number but for a variety of reasons had not progressed further with them.
