We set up the company over a year ago, essentially to track my own portfolio investments within the biotechnology sector. This is a sector which I believe to be both undervalued and to offer excellent opportunities in its potential for growth. This is a view that I have outlined in the recently published book "Cracking the Code", which outlines the tremendous advances being made in the bio sciences as a result of the fusion of computer power and cumulative human discovery. Financial Review We raised net cash of just under £2.7 million (£3.0 million before listing expenses) in September 2011. I am pleased to report that, by the reporting date, we have increased our total assets to £3,156,154 - nearly a 17% return on available capital. This is despite the fact that it took some time to become invested. At the end of June 2012, we held cash of £237,391, a portfolio of assets valued at £2,909,183 and receivables of £9,580. During the same period, we have generated an income of £510,515 made up of £16,448 dividend income, net sales gains of £226,308 and net unrealised portfolio gains of £267,759. This, after subtracting all expenses of £94,062 and adding interest income and foreign exchange gains of £8,755, produced a total comprehensive income of £425,208. In addition, admission costs of £301,954 have been taken into equity. Bearing in mind the current size of the company, I and the board have been very careful to minimise on-going operating expenses. Thus we have been able to keep the annual running cost of the Company, after listing expenses, under a relatively modest £95,000. Strategy and Outlook Our strategy is very simple - to invest the portfolio into those bio-pharma companies which I hold in my personal portfolios. The bulk of the portfolio (approximately 70%) is and will be invested in companies that are cash generative, and often dividend paying, and which have market capitalisations in excess of US$ 5 billion. Many of these companies are situated in the USA, home to the bulk of the world's largest drug companies, but there are also representatives from elsewhere in the world, providing us with a diversified spread and a generous income stream. Names such as Pfizer, Inc., Sanofi SA, Celgene Corporation and GlaxoSmithKline fall into this category, and while growth for these companies is somewhat constrained by their sheer scale, and by rich-world government pressures on health care costs, they have substantial exposure to emerging markets. The combination of rich-world standards in drug manufacture and emerging market potential growth in sales is a potent one and leads us to believe that many of these large companies will experience better than expected sales and profits in the years ahead. Emerging markets currently have very low per capita expenditure on drugs and we believe that this provides significant opportunities. Furthermore, Price Earnings ratios and other measures of share values indicate fundamental opportunities in these larger companies. To provide greater, albeit more speculative, upside to the portfolio we also hold a range of smaller to medium sized companies which amount to approximately a third of the portfolio. Names such as Medivation, Inc. (which is commercialising a new prostate drug) and Plethora Solutions Holdings (developing a male sexual health product), as well as Summit plc (involved in research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy), all feature. This balanced portfolio approach we hope will continue to yield positive NAV results and we remain optimistic for the next year.

Notes (forming part of the financial statements for the period from 3 May 2011 (date of incorporation) to 30 June 2012) 1 Accounting policies Port Erin Biopharma Investments Limited is a Company domiciled in the Isle of Man. The Company's strategy is to create value for Shareholders through investing in companies that have the potential to generate substantial revenues through the development of biopharmaceutical drugs. The principal accounting policies are set out below. a) Statement of compliance The financial statements are prepared on the historical cost basis except for the valuation of financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the interpretations adopted by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). The financial statements were approved by the Board of Directors on 30 October 2012. b) Basis of preparation Use of estimates and judgment The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of policies and reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making the judgements about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates. The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an on-going basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision only affects that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods. Going concern The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, taking into consideration the level of cash and cash equivalents held by the Company. The Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company will have adequate resources for its continuing existence and projected activities for the foreseeable future, and for these reasons, continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements for the period ended 30 June 2012. Functional and presentation currency These financial statements are presented in Pound Sterling which is the Company's functional currency. c) Investment income Any realised and unrealised gains and losses on investments are presented within Income. Interest income earned during the period, is accrued on a time apportionment basis, by reference to the principal outstanding and the effective rate applicable. Dividend income is recognised when a security held goes ex-dividend. Dividends are shown as net cash received, after the deduction of withholding taxes. d) Financial instruments Classification The Company classifies its investments in equity securities as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss. These financial assets are classified as held for trading or designated at fair value through profit or loss at inception. Classification (continued) Financial assets held for trading are acquired or incurred principally for the purpose of selling in the short term. Financial assets designated at fair value through profit or loss are those that are managed and their performance evaluated on a fair value basis in accordance with the Company's documented investment strategy. Financial assets that are classified as loans and receivables include amounts due from brokers, other receivables and cash and cash equivalents. Recognition/de-recognition Purchases and sales of investments are recognised on their trade date, which is the date on which the Company commits to purchase or sell the asset. Investments are initially measured at fair value. Investments are de-recognised when the rights to receive cash flows from the investments have expired or the Company has transferred substantially all risks and rewards of ownership. Measurement Subsequent to initial recognition, all financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are measured at fair value. Any gains and losses arising from changes in Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are included in profit or loss in the period in which they arise. Interest from Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income using the effective interest rate method. Dividend income from Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income when the Company's right to receive payment is established. Fair value measurement principles The fair value of investment holdings is based on their quoted market prices at the reporting date on a recognised exchange or in the case of non-exchange traded instruments, sourced from a reputable counterparty, without any deduction for estimated future selling costs. Financial assets are priced at their closing bid prices, while financial liabilities are priced at their closing offer prices. Company assets may, at any time include securities and other financial instruments or obligations that are thinly traded or for which no market exists and/or which are restricted as to their transferability under securities laws. If a quoted market price is not available on a recognised stock exchange, or a market is not sufficiently active for the market price to be considered reliable, or if a price is not available from a reputable counterparty, fair value of the financial instruments may be estimated by the Directors using valuation techniques, including use of recent arm's length market transactions, reference to the current fair value of another instrument that is substantially the same, discounted cash flow techniques, option pricing models or any other valuation technique that provides a reliable estimate of prices obtained in actual market transactions. Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash balances and call deposits with maturities of three months or less from the acquisition date that are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in fair value. Compound financial instruments Compound financial instruments comprise convertible loans that can be converted to equity at the option of the issuer. The financial instrument is initially recognised at fair value. Subsequent to initial recognition, the derivative component is measured at fair value while the non-derivative loan component is measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Trade and other receivables Trade and other receivables originated by the Company are initially recognised at fair value and subsequently stated at amortised cost less impairment losses. Trade and other payables Trade and other payables are initially recognised at fair value less directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequently they are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. e) Share capital and share premium Ordinary shares are classified as equity. The ordinary shares of the Company have a par value of £0.000001 each. Excess proceeds received for the issue of shares has been credited to share premium. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of ordinary shares are recognised as a deduction from equity, net of any tax effects. f) Share based payments - warrants The fair value of warrants is calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model (where no fair value of the service or assets provided is evident) and is recognised as expense over the vesting period where applicable with a corresponding increase in equity. On determining fair values, terms and conditions attaching to the warrants are taken into account. Management is also required to make certain assumptions and estimates regarding such items as the life of warrants, volatility and forfeiture rates. Changes in the assumptions used to estimate fair value could result in materially different results. g) Foreign currencies Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at the rate ruling at the date of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rate of exchange ruling at the reporting date. All differences are taken to the income statement. Non-monetary assets and liabilities that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. h) New standards and interpretations not yet adopted A number of new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations are not yet effective for the period, and have not been applied in preparing these financial statements: Effective date (accounting periods commencing on or after) New/Revised International Accounting Standards / International Financial Reporting Standards (IAS/IFRS) IFRS 9 Financial Instruments- Classification 1 January 2015 and Measurement IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements 1 January 2013 IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements 1 January 2013 IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other 1 January 2013 Entities IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement 1 January 2013 The Directors do not expect the adoption of the standards and interpretations to have a material impact on the Company's financial statements in the period of initial application. There has been no material impact on the Company's financial statements of new standards or interpretations that have come into effect during the current reporting period. i) Taxation The Company is subject to income tax at a rate of 0% in the Isle of Man, and accordingly, no tax has been provided for in these financial statements. The Company may be subject to withholding taxes in relation to income from investments, or investment realisation proceeds or gains, and such amounts will be accounted for as incurred. 2 Directors' fees The fees of Directors who served during the period from 3 May 2011 (date of incorporation) to 30 June 2012 were as follows: 2012 £ James Mellon - Thomas Winnifrith - Nicholas James Woolard 10,000 Denham Eke - ─────── 10,000 ═══════ On 6 May 2011, Shellbay Investments Limited entered into a letter of appointment with the Company to provide the services of James Mellon as Non-Executive Chairman of the Company.

These policies are intended to manage risks identified in such a way that opportunities to deliver the Company's objectives are achieved. The Company's risk management takes place in the context of day-to-day operations and normal business processes such as strategic and business planning. The Directors have identified each risk and are responsible for coordinating and continuously improving risk strategies, processes and measures in accordance with the Company's established business objectives. The Company's principal financial instruments consist of cash, receivables and payables arising from its operations and activities. The main risks arising from the Company's financial instruments and the policies for managing each of these risks are summarised below. Credit Risk Credit risk is the risk of loss associated with the counterparty's inability to fulfil its obligations. The Company's credit risk is primarily attributable to investments, receivables and cash balances with the maximum exposure being the reported balance in the statement of financial position. The Company has a nominal level of debtors and as such the Company believes that the credit risk is minimal. The Company holds available cash with licensed banks which have a strong history. The Company considers the credit ratings of banks in which it holds funds in order to reduce exposure to credit risk. The carrying amount of financial assets represents the maximum credit exposure. The maximum exposure to credit risk at the reporting date was: Carrying amount 2012 £ Investments and loans Quoted 2,802,587 Unquoted 42,563 Convertible loans 64,033 Cash and cash equivalents 237,391 ─────── 3,146,574 ═══════ Market price risk Market price risk is the risk that the market price will fluctuate due to macro-economic issues such as changes in market factors specific to that security, market interest rates and foreign exchange rates. The Company is exposed to significant market price risks as financial instruments recognised are linked to market price volatility. A 1% increase/decrease in market value of investments would increase/decrease equity and profit by £28,452. Cash flow and funding risk The Company is exposed to liquidity risk to the extent that it holds investments that it may not be able to sell quickly at close to fair value. The risk is managed by the Company by means of cash flow planning to ensure that future cash requirements are anticipated and, where financial instruments have to be sold to meet these requirements, the process is carried out in a controlled manner intended to minimise the liquidity risk involved. Interest rate risk A significant share of the Company's assets is comprised of cash held at banks. As a result, the Company is subject to risk due to fluctuations in the prevailing level of market interest rates. However, income earned from bank interest is not considered material to the Company's performance or financial position. Fair values of financial instruments At 30 June 2012 the carrying amounts of cash resources, trade and other receivables, and trade and other payables approximate fair value due to their short-term maturities. Foreign currency risk The Company is exposed to foreign currency risk on fluctuations related to financial assets and liabilities that are denominated in a number of currencies.

The warrants may be exercised for 12.5 pence at any time within two years of the date of issue. The warrant exercise is either at the option of the holder or at the option of the Company, in the event that the closing price of the ordinary shares is more than 20 pence for five consecutive trading days. In considering the share subscription price, the lack of historic share price performance data, and the price and conditions attaching to exercise, the Directors deem the warrants to have no separate value from the shares issued on the Company's admission to AIM. The total number of share warrants in issue as at the year-end is set out below: Fair value of warrants at issue Grant Term in Exercise Recipients Date Years Price Issued Placing 9 September 2 £0.125 30,000,000 - subscribers 2011 12 Related party transaction Under an agreement dated 1 December 2011, Burnbrae Limited, a Company related to both James Mellon and Denham Eke, provide certain services, principally accounting and administration, to the Company. This agreement may be terminated by either party on three months' notice. The charge for services provided is £30,000 per annum. 13 Basic and diluted earnings per share The calculation of basic earnings per share of the Company is based on the profit for the year of £425,208 and the weighted average number of shares of 23,428,235 in issue during the period. Diluted earnings per share are calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding to assume conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares such as warrants and options. There is no dilutive effect at 30 June 2012 because the warrants are not able to be exercised until a market-based criterion is satisfied. This criterion had not been satisfied at 30 June 2012. 14 Commitments and contingent liabilities There are no known commitments or contingent liabilities as at the period end.
