                     Results for the year ended 31 May 2007



Chairman's Statement

I joined the board of Cantono plc as an executive director on 9
March 2007 following the acquisition of CSF Managed Services plc in early
January 2007, bringing with me over 25 years of senior management experience in
the IT industry.

In the short time I have been with the Group your Board has already
made significant changes as the Group redefines its business strategy and
operations.

The Group has re-branded itself as Cantono plc and transformed into
a managed services company offering outsourced services and products to a broad
range of markets, moving away from software development and distribution. The
re-branding has also given the opportunity for all the newly acquired entities,
along with the Group's existing managed services operation, to unify and
consolidate under a single name. As part of this consolidation process the
Company's shareholding in its non-core activity, Panopticon Software AB, was
sold to its principal founders in May 2007. As part of the disposal the Group
negotiated a debt for equity swap and removed approximately #4.1m of long term
debt.

Turnover for the 12 month period ending 31 May 2007 was #5,144,268
compared to #7,919,931 in the previous period to 31 May 2006. The operating loss
in the period to 31 May 2007 was #6,830,931 compared to #6,343,764 in the
previous 13 month trading period to 31 May 2006.

The reorganisation of the managed services businesses faced many
challenges: commercial, logistical and operational as well as financial. To
carry this through has placed great pressures on all our employees and I would
like to take this opportunity to thank them for their flexibility, determination
and support.

Change continues unabated in the market in which the Group operates
and your Board continues to review its operations and to look for further
improvements and opportunities. As part of this on-going process we were pleased
to successfully complete a further round of fundraising in early August 2007.
The Group raised approximately #10m, net of expenses, to provide additional
working capital for the existing businesses along with new capital to broaden
the Group's business activities into the data centre market. We were also
pleased to report that this fundraising was supported not only by several of our
existing, major shareholders, but also by a number of new, institutional
shareholders, thereby broadening our shareholder base.

The data centre market is one I am familiar with having built a
similar operation within my previous group. This is a very exciting market space
which your Board believes has considerable opportunities for growth for the
foreseeable future and one which your Board is committed to develop.

In summary, your Board has changed the direction of the Group and
continues to seek every opportunity to improve its operational efficiency in the
managed services business and exploit further opportunities as they arise.

Notes to the Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 May 2007

1  Accounting policies

   Basis of preparation

The financial statements have been prepared under the historical
cost convention and in accordance with applicable accounting standards.

The consolidated financial statements include the financial
statements of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings made up to 31 May
2007. The acquisitions method of accounting has been adopted. Under this method,
the results of the subsidiary undertakings acquired or disposed of in the year
are included in the consolidated profit and loss account from the date of
acquisition or up to the date of disposal.

An associate is an undertaking in which the Group has a long term
interest, usually from 20% to 50% of the equity voting rights, and over which it
exercises significant influence. A joint venture is an undertaking in which the
Group has a long term interest and over which it exercises joint control. The
Group's share of the profits less losses of associates and of joint ventures is
included in the consolidated profit and loss account and its interest in their
net assets, other than goodwill, is included in investments in the consolidated
balance sheet.

Where a group company is party to a joint arrangement which is not
an entity, that company accounts directly for its part of the income and
expenditure, assets, liabilities and cash flows. Such arrangements are reported
in the consolidated financial statements on the same basis.

Under section 230(4) of the Companies Act 1985 the Company is
exempt from the requirement to present its own profit and loss account. Its loss
for the financial year was #11,326,065 (2006 - #582,939).

Going concern

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern
basis as the Directors consider there to be sufficient capital available to meet
the Group's requirements for the foreseeable future.

Turnover

Turnover represents the amounts derived from the provision of goods
and services to third party customers during the period and is exclusive of
value added tax.

The Group has three main income streams: software sales and
associated maintenance income, managed services and professional services.

Software sales of standard products are recognised when and to the
extent that the Group has obtained the right to consideration through its
performance. Revenue from support and maintenance is recognised on a
straight-line basis over the period to which the maintenance agreement relates.
Revenue from managed services is recognised on a straight-line basis over the
period of the contract. Professional services income is recognised at the point
of completion.

Depreciation

Depreciation is provided on tangible fixed assets so as to write
off the cost or valuation, less any estimated residual value, over their
expected useful economic life as follows:


Plant and machinery                   3 - 7 years straight line
Fixtures and fittings                 3 - 5 years straight line


Goodwill

Goodwill is the difference between the fair value of consideration
paid for an acquired entity and the aggregate of the fair value of that entity's
identifiable assets and liabilities.

Positive goodwill is capitalised, classified as an asset on the
balance sheet and amortised on a straight line basis over its useful economic
life. It is reviewed for impairment at the end of the first full financial year
following the acquisition and in other periods if events or changes in
circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.

Amortisation

Amortisation is provided on intangible fixed assets so as to write
off the cost or valuation, less any estimated residual value, over their
expected useful economic life.

Investment

Fixed asset investments are stated at cost less provision for
diminution in value.

Research and development expenditure

Research and development expenditure is written off as incurred,
except that development expenditure incurred on an individual project is carried
forward when its future recoverability can reasonably be regarded as assured.
Any expenditure carried forward is amortised in line with the expected future
sales from the related project.

Stock

Stock is valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value,
after due regard for obsolete and slow moving stocks. Net realisable value is
based on selling price less anticipated costs to completion and selling costs.

Foreign currencies

Profit and loss account transactions in foreign currencies are
translated into sterling at the exchange rate ruling at the date of the
transaction. Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are
translated into sterling at the closing rates at the balance sheet date and the
exchange differences are included in the profit and loss account.



The results of overseas operations are translated at the average rates of
exchange during the period and their balance sheets translated into sterling at
the rates of exchange ruling on the balance sheet date. Exchange differences
which arise from translation of the opening net assets and results of foreign
subsidiary undertakings and from translating the profit and loss account at an
average rate are taken to reserves.

Hire purchase and finance lease contracts

Assets held under finance leases, which are leases where
substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset have passed to
the company, are capitalised in the balance sheet and are depreciated over their
useful lives. The capital elements of future obligations under the leases are
included as liabilities in the balance sheet. The interest element of the rental
obligation is charged to the profit and loss account over the period of the
lease and represents a constant proportion of the balance of capital repayments
outstanding.

Assets acquired under instalment finance agreements are treated as
tangible fixed assets and depreciation is provided accordingly. The capital
element of future finance payments is included within creditors. Finance charges
are allocated to accounting periods over the length of the contract.

Operating leases

Rentals payable under operating leases are charged in the profit
and loss account on a straight line basis over the lease term.

Pensions

The Group operates a defined contribution pension scheme.
Contributions are charged in the profit and loss account as they become payable
in accordance with the rules of the scheme.

Equity shares and capital instruments

Shares are included in shareholders' funds. Other instruments are
classified as liabilities if they contain an obligation to transfer economic
benefits and if not they are included in shareholders' funds. The finance cost
recognised in the profit and loss account in respect of capital instruments
other than equity shares is allocated to periods over the term of the instrument
at a constant rate on the carrying amount.

Taxation

Current tax is provided at amounts expected to be paid (or
recovered) using the tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively
enacted by the balance sheet date.

Deferred tax is recognised in respect of all timing differences
that have originated but not reversed at the balance sheet date where
transactions or events that result in an obligation to pay more tax in the
future or a right to pay less tax in the future have occurred at the balance
sheet date. Timing differences are differences between the group's taxable
profits and its results as stated in the financial statements that arise from
the inclusion of gains and losses in tax assessments in the periods different
from those in which they are recognised in the financial statements.

A net deferred tax asset is recognised only when, on the basis of
all available evidence, it can be regarded as more likely than not there will be
suitable profits from which the future reversal of the underlying timing
differences can be deducted.

Deferred tax is measured at the average tax rates that are expected
to apply in the periods in which the timing differences are expected to reverse
based on tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by
the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is measured on a non-discounted basis.

Share based payments

The Group has adopted Financial Reporting Standard 20 'Share based
payment' for the first time this year. No entries have been recorded in the
accounts for the value of the options as the valuation is considered to be
immaterial.

2  Turnover

On 4 January 2007 the Company acquired the whole of the share
capital of CSF Managed Services plc. Its audited accounts for the year ended 31

agreement Computer Solutions and Finance Group plc, its ultimate holding company
