Trafalgar New Homes PLC
("TNH", the "Company" or the "Group")
UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS
Trafalgar New Homes PLC today announces its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2012.
The first six months of the current year show minimal turnover and a consolidated loss of £102,000 in
accordance with the Company's projections that the principal turnover and profitability for the year to 31
March 2013 will arise in the second half.
The above does not mean that there has been no activity, however. Following on from my comments and those of
the Managing Director in the Statements accompanying the Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2012,
construction has continued on our sites in Kent at High Street, Edenbridge and Oakhurst Manor, Hildenborough.
On those two sites we will aim to deliver 23 residential homes being 8 x two bed apartments, a studio,
penthouse, cottage (and a shop) at Edenbridge and 12 three/four/five bedroom houses at Hildenborough.
Completion of the construction of the Edenbridge site has been achieved; on the Hildenborough site, completion
of the build is anticipated for March/April 2013.
The twelve units at Edenbridge are now being marketed for sale, which should contribute towards the Group's
results for the year ended 31 March 2013. With the other pending sales, I can say that we are currently on
target to achieve our internal projections for the current year. I am confident we will show enhanced earnings
per share for the Group as a result.
Future sales of the Hildenborough houses should contribute to the anticipated enhanced profitability for the
year end 31.03.2014.
Land supply remains good, with the Group continuing to concentrate on the purchase of sites with planning
permission and 'brownfield' sites where we anticipate enhancing the planning status of the site and, therefore,
its value. Terms have been agreed for options and conditional contracts on a number of sites, in addition to
those sites we have agreed to purchase which already have planning permission.
We anticipate buying land and building houses across all market sectors, from two/three bed starter homes and
apartments up to five/six bedroom executive detached houses. Most sites will be for private housing but we
will accommodate affordable housing when it is required, as part of the planning consent.
We have a continuing commitment to provide quality homes at realistic prices in the most sought after

Notes to the pro forma information
(i) The creditors of the Company represent a bank loan repayable in 24 equal monthly instalments.
(ii) The net assets of the Company have been extracted from Part 4 of this Document and adjusted for the
negotiated split of the bank loan per note (i) above.
(iii) The net assets of Combe Bank have been extracted without adjustment from the six month interim
accounts to 31 May 2011 included in Part 5 of this Document. No account has been taken of the activities of
Combe Bank since 31 May 2011.
(iv) The adjustment assumes Trafalgar New Homes Ltd acquires all of the £100,000 of ordinary share capital
of Combe Bank Homes Ltd by issuing 186,817,671 Ordinary 1p shares at a price of 1.2p. Using the Balance Sheets
above, such a transaction would give rise to goodwill on consolidation of circa £3.69m for the enlarged group.
This goodwill would be subject to an impairment review, and due to the insolvent balance sheets of both
companies, would most likely be written off in its entirety. Hence, there would be no impact on the net assets
of the company as shown above.
