We remain committed to focusing upon niche markets within the technology sector and have continued to follow our long- term strategy of growing our specialist businesses organically and adding acquisitions of suitable companies when appropriate, complemented by a strong central administrative and financial core. Chairman’s and Chief Executive Officer’s statement This strategy has delivered another year of impressive financial results, our third in a row since flotation in 2005. Two more specialist IT recruitment businesses have joined our Group in 2007. Intelect Recruitment plc, which provides niche recruitment services predominantly within the software engineering and manufacturing software sectors, was acquired in July 2007. In September 2007, e-CRM People Limited which focuses on the Enterprise Asset Management, IT Service Management, IT Storage and Security sectors also joined the Group. Both businesses have both performed well since acquisition. As ever, our key asset is our people and we thank our dedicated sales and administrative teams for their hard work, thorough knowledge of their individual markets and their dedication to growing the business in the last twelve months. Results_During the year the Group’s existing businesses grew organically on a like-for-like basis by 18%. Contractors working on assignments grew by 40% during the year (including acquisitions), of which 10% was organic growth. We are particularly pleased with the performance of PeopleCo Worldwide and Sand Resources as they represented significant investments for the Group when they were acquired in 2006. Both have delivered very strong growth in net fee income, contractors working and operating profits during 2007. Total revenues, including part year figures for the two acquisitions, grew by 52% to £86.7m, and gross profit (“net fee income”) grew by 43% to £12.9m. This contributed to the Group increasing its EBITA to £4.5m after adding back the charge for IFRS 2 share-based payments. Profit before tax increased by 41% to £3.1m and basic adjusted earnings per share (see note 6) increased by 38% to 11.0 pence (2006: 8.0 pence). Operations_We have continued to grow our client base during 2007 by adding a number of significant new wins including Serco Group, Turner Broadcasting and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. The two Catalist accreditations which were awarded to us during 2006 for at least a three year period by the Office of Government Commerce to allow us to supply specialist IT contractors and interim managers to public sector organisations have underpinned exceptional growth for us in the public sector. We expanded our “Academy” training and development programme for new recruits into the industry during 2007 and this has continued to deliver new fee earners into the different business units. We consider the Academy to be an essential driver for future growth. I’d been in recruitment for 2 years and I was looking for a chance to begin to specialise in certain areas of IT and Finance. The InterQuest Group, and Genesis in particular were strongly recommended to me and in my 5 months here I’ve not been disappointed. My manager backed my plans and I was immediately given the freedom to build my own specialism in Risk. Already I’ve now become the sole supplier to one of the larger consultancies, and have begun doing business with two more. My business has spread beyond the UK and things are looking very exciting going forward. Billings and earnings are excellent and I’ve got my sights firmly fixed on the next sales incentive trip! Tim Chattaway, Senior Consultant, Genesis InterQuest Group plc is more than just a market-leading IT and technology recruitment firm, we’re experts in our field – a trusted source of specialist knowledge backed up by impressive resources. During 2007 strong organic growth continued in our existing businesses and two more successful acquisitions were completed. As a result we have delivered our best set of financial results to date including a 52% increase in revenue, a 43% increase in gross profit and a 41% increase in profit before tax.

Emperor was appointed to update the existing PLC identity, retaining the characteristics of the original brand, but making it more contemporary and relevant for today’s market and, more importantly, introducing corporate standards and guidelines for consistent implementation in the future. Cairn also asked us to develop a differentiated but complementary brand identity for its Indian subsidiary – Cairn India. The finished identity recalls its Cairn Energy heritage in the use of the iconic oval shape and retention of blue as it’s primary colour. The hand-drawn typography gives the logo a contemporary, international feel. The positioning statement of ‘Energy for India’ was developed in parallel with the identity.

Brandandmarketingcommunications28 Direct mail campaign RMJM Building brands RMJM, Scotland’s pre-eminent architects, asked Emperor to produce a visually stunning brochure and website to tell the story behind their successful bid to design Gazprom’s new headquarters in the world heritage city of St Petersburg. Following this we have also produced mailshot marketing packs showcasing their credentials and portfolio to both new and existing customers.
  31. 31. 29 Brandandmarketingcommunications RMJM was appointed to design Gazprom’s new headquarters in St Petersburg, close to the Bolsheokhtinsky Bridge.This includes a new masterplan for Gazprom City, a 70-hectare site to be regenerated on the edge of the historic centre of St Petersburg, 5km from Palace Square.RMJM was selected following an international design competition involving five internationally renowned architects, and the purpose of this publication is to describe the design proposals by RMJM which formed the submission for our winning entry. St Petersburg is a very special place and has been recognised by UNESCO, which has awarded it world heritage status. It has a tradition of producing the highest quality of buildings which come together to form the highest quality of urban environment. The design ideas included within this publication continue that tradition. The proposals are formed from an understanding and respect for the city, an entirely contextual response which is rooted in the ‘place’. The buildings are designed specifically for the site and are not transferable. They respond to the bridge which provides the link to the city, to the city grain with its spires of gold, to the colour and richness of the baroque Smolny Cathedral opposite and to the historical fortress which once occupied the site. The proposals follow studies in precedent, studies in the history of the city and the site. As well as respecting the history of the context, the design concept looks forward to create a new landmark which relates to the contemporary age and has meaning today. Компания RMJM получила заказ на разработку концепции новой штаб- квартиры Газпрома и генерального плана застройки Газпром-Сити в Санкт-Петербурге вблизи Большеохтинского моста на территории нынешней промзоны площадью около 70га на границе исторического центра города, в 5км от Дворцовой площади. Выбор Газпрома пал на RMJM по результатам международного архитектурного конкурса, в котором участвовали также шесть других всемирно известных архитекторов. В данной публикации подробно описывается конкурсное предложение RMJM, сформировавшее победившую концепцию. Санкт-Петербург – совершенно особый город, чья уникальность признана ЮНЕСКО, объявившего исторический центр памятником всемирного культурного наследия. Город с традицией высочайшего архитектурного качества зданий, которые сливаются воедино, создавая гармоничную градостроительную среду. Идеи концепции, опубликованные далее, продолжают данную традицию. Проектные предложения, сформированные из понимания и уважения города и его исторического контекста, в своей идеологии уходят корнями в историю этого места, во времена, когда здесь существовала пятиугольная звезда крепости Ниеншанц, а позднее и пятикрылое здание судостроительной верфи. Здания были спроектированы специально для данного конкретного участка и не могут быть просто перенесены на другое место. В их архитектуре заложен диалог с Большеохтинским мостом, связывающим два берега реки и два города: старый и современный, как переходный элемент к историческому масштабу города с его золотыми шпилями и куполами, с богатством и разноцветием барокко в ансамбле Смольного Собора.Проектные предложения предваряют исследования прецедентов и анализ истории города и участка застройки. Наряду с уважением к истории и контексту места, концепция ориентирована на создание нового и современного здания-символа, отражающего культурные и эстетические ценности нашей эпохи.

This publication outlines the brief and background to the project and explains RMJM’s underlying concept - creating a new spire comprised of five elements whose individual footprints gently rotate on their own axis as the building rises and tapers to create a dynamic new landmark.

Adopters come from all age groups and backgrounds, living in all kinds of homes. They may be working, married, living with their partner, single or unemployed, and may or may not have children of their own. What they have in common is empathy, the ability to be a sensitive parent with their adopted child and a commitment to making a difference to a child’s life. Who needs adopting? Adoption is no longer just about babies: adoptive families are needed for a variety of children especially children of school age, children from minority ethnic backgrounds, sibling groups; children with behavioural problems and children who have a physical or learning disability. The children will come from a diverse range of backgrounds and their ages may range from birth to teenagers. All have one thing in common; they need a permanent adoptive family. 10678 Partners FAQ A4_AW.indd 1 28/8/08 14:53:30 Could you be someone who’s not going to give up on me?

Despite cuts in Base Rates, debt facilities remain scarce and borrowing costs remain high. UK economic prospects are poor in the short term; occupier demand has reduced and there is an increased risk of tenant failures. We expect better quality assets to recover more quickly than secondary properties and the Fund is reasonably positioned to benefit from this. cumulaTive invesTmenT perFormance – Five years percenTage annual perFormance % Life 13.23 11.71 13.16 -2.23 -23.54 12 months to end of October 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Basis: % growth, Total return (gross), bid to bid after the deduction of annual management charges only.

The Company is applying its expertise in epithelial stem cell biology and gene expression profiling to develop novel therapeutics, biomarkers, and contract research services. Emerging protein therapeutics Epistem is discovering the key regulators of adult epithelial stem cells and developing protein therapeutics that control cell production in the areas of oncology, oncology supportive care (mucositis, alopecia), and epithelial disease. We have applied our discovery platform of expert knowledge of the behaviour of adult epithelial stem cells alongside high-resolution gene expression analysis to identify genes from which to identify soluble stem cell regulators. Production, purification, and testing of proteins is underway in our industry-standard in vivo functional stem cell assays. Lead candidates that have demonstrated robust and reproducible in vivo activity are emerging from the recombinant proteins for further characterisation in disease-specific models. Oncology collaboration: cancer stem cells Epistem is leveraging its discovery platform to identify novel targets/pathways in the area of cancer stem cells. This emerging area of oncology focuses on rare and less-differentiated tumour stem cells that are resistant to cancer therapeutics. Cancer stem cells are thought to retain the ability to self-renew, making more identical daughter cells, rather than differentiating into mature cells. Comparing normal to cancerous self-renewal pathways is intended to reveal new targets in oncology and also new pathways to expand the renewal capabilities of normal epithelial tissues. Partnerships Epistem intends to advance its candidate therapeutics through the proof-of-concept stage in preclinical development and then to partner further development with drug companies. Epistem will also enter into discovery partnerships with drug companies, initially in the area of oncology and cancer stem cells. This partnership is particularly attractive since more than 80% of adult cancers are of epithelial origin. Leveraging combined business model The Novel Therapies team identifies and produces candidate regulator proteins for evaluation in the Company’s industry- standard preclinical efficacy assays. In this way Epistem leverages its combined business model to advance protein theapeutics to the stage of well-characterised preclinical candidates.

The platform incorporates: Target validation.• In vitro• compound testing. In vivo• efficacy assessment. using: Acute and chronic IBD models. • Epistem aims to deliver high quality preclinical data that is both credible and reliable, making the decision to progress to the clinical phase more precise. Inflammatory bowel disease describes two separate diseases: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). Both are characterised by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa, resulting in ulceration, mucosal bleeding and diarrhoea. Disease is accompanied by reduced nutritional status and weight loss, and can be associated with a higher risk of developing certain gastrointestinal cancers. The histopathology and molecular basis of Crohn’s disease and UC are very different, with the immune response of UC that of a Th2-type, involving cytokines such as IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13. In contrast, Crohn’s displays characteristics of a Th1-type response, dependent on the production of IL-12, TNF-a and IFN-g. Epistem’s IBD platform combines a comprehensive range of assays and analyses. As IBD is a multi-factorial chronic disease, it is impossible to provide a model that truly represents the clinical situation. However, by providing a range of models, we can give a good indication of the suitability of new therapeutics for treatment of IBD. Upon completion of each discovery programme, Epistem strives to deliver a comprehensive data package that clarifies in vitro and in vivo efficacy, progressing a potential therapeutic agent through the following phases: Target validation Epistem has access to human diseased tissue (e.g. Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis) and expertise in the following areas: Immunohistochemistry.• Image analysis using the Ariol • ® Image Analysis System (Applied Imaging Corp). Histometric data using the • Zeiss AxioHOME ® system. Gene expression profiling (qRT-PCR). • Using these analyses, expression of the target gene or protein in diseased tissue can be confirmed and quantified. In vitro compound testing T cell/B cell interaction model An in vitro model to study the activation of B cells by activated T cells, relevant to Th2-type pathologies, such as ulcerative colitis. In vivo models Epistem has a range of in vivo models to assess agents with different modes of action. Initially agents are tested in the acute models: DSS• TNBS• Oxazolone (in development) • The most potent agents are then selected and progressed to the chronic models as a final efficacy validation step. Chronic DSS• T-cell transfer (in development) • IL-10 knockout• Correlation between MPO activity and colitis (TNBS). Grouped diarrhoea and faecal occult blood incidents (DSS).

Plucked Hair Biomarker Platform To Guide Drug Development Summary: The Biomarker division at Epistem provides services to drug development companies using its plucked hair biomarker technology. Drug induced changes in gene expression (mRNA) can be measured from a single hair. Epistem’s biomarker technology applies to drugs that target intracellular signalling pathways in oncology and other therapeutic areas. The Company’s focus lies with designing biomarker strategies for compounds in preclinical and clinical development: Pharmacodynamics:• measure the biological effect drug has on target and generate mechanism of action (MOA) data. Drug exposure:• Measure drug level and time required to effect targeted signalling pathways. Dose scheduling:• Measure duration of drug effects over dose range and time. Company Overview Epistem is a biotechnology company (LSE: EHP) based in Manchester, UK commercialising its expertise in epithelial stem cells. The Company is applying its expertise in epithelial stem cell biology and gene expression profiling to develop novel therapeutics, biomarkers, and contract research services. Plucked Hair Biomarkers Plucked hairs offer an attractive surrogate tissue for biomarkers. Sample collection is minimally invasive, with the bulb of cells at the end of plucked hairs providing a relevant surrogate tissue for drug development in oncology. Solid epithelial tumours account for over 80% of adult cancers. The hair follicle is highly sensitive to drug effects Epistem co-founder, Professor Chris Potten, is a world-renowned expert in the behaviour of epithelial stem cells. He discovered that very low levels of radiation (0.01 – 0.1 Gy) induces apoptosis in the stem cells of the hair follicle. From this finding, a series of experimental models demonstrating a dose-linear response of the hair follicle to toxicity were developed by Professor Potten’s laboratory. Key Benefits: Minimally invasive procedure.• Multiple independent samplings• before, during and after treatment. Samples stable for shipping.• Drugs reach highly vascularised• hair follicle. Bulb of epithelial cells at end of• plucked hair provide a relevant reference for solid tumours, which account for 80% of adult cancers. Highly sensitive technology for• pathway analysis across a range of therapeutic areas. Epistem’s biomarker platform is based on its foundation in epithelial stem cell biology and its extensive experience of measuring gene expression changes, in small amounts of epithelial tissues, in response to drugs. This minimally invasive technology is used by our Clients to measure drug-induced changes in gene expression and provide valuable information for decision-making in the critical pathway of drug development.
