V Pharmacy Management has just completed its first capital raising thanks to an introduction from Wholesale Investor and is now set to launch its franchise models. With the combined experience of DC Strategy, Australia’s leading franchising specialist, V Pharmacy Management will roll out its two retail pharmacy brands, V Pharmacy and Alive Discount Pharmacy. Retail Pharmacy will capitalise on the aging population over the next few decades. The V Pharmacy Brand offers a fresh approach to a conservative and boring industry with in store health screening in an innovative store design recognised with two American Express National Retail Awards. V Pharmacy focuses on health, nutrition and beauty categories in shopping centre formats. See www.vpharmacy.com.au for more information. Alive Discount Pharmacy offers a price leading model with the successful “Feel alive for less” slogan. Alive Discount Pharmacy has shown amazing sales growth and is positioned for significant expansion. Having proven the brands, and now aligned with strong strategic partners, look out for a V Pharmacy or Alive Discount Pharmacy opening near you.

Deep Value Microcap Fund Returns 93.37% for investors in 12 Months Microequities Deep Value Microcap Fund returned a negative 0.57% in February, bringing the total return in the last 12 months to 93.37%. With the reporting season behind us, our Fund’s portfolio constituents delivered on the whole impressive numbers. One company which did not deliver the growth demonstrated a significant derailment from our investment case, Penrice Soda (ASX:PSH) was promptly sold by our fund. The Fund has acquired two new companies in the information technology sector. One of the companies’ holds significant operating leverage to a new cycle of CAPEX and technology spend in its respective industry. We have purchased the company for the Fund near a historical low, at a deep discount to our appraised value. The other technology company purchased possesses a predictable highly generative operating cash flow business led by a highly experienced and capable management team and we expect the business to transition from a period of low growth to higher double digit growth. Currently trading at a strong discount to its sector, and on double digit gross dividend yield, we believe that over our investment cycle the company will be ultimately revalued by the market. In the meantime its high dividend yield will provide adequate returns to our investors.

Maintaining average growth in excess of 200%, Flour Cask Bay Sanctuary is already well on the way towards its most successful year to date.

Better Management Of WORKING CAPITAL RAISED FROM INVESTORS By Michael Derin, Managing Director, Azure Group In June 2009 HSBC revealed after researching over 300 of their key clients, 85% suggested that working capital management was their highest priority for their business and the driving force for improvement during 2010.

As a starting point look at what industry you’re in and how your larger competitors manage their working capital and liquidity needs and deploy similar tactics.

Those companies that are utilising capital raised from investors in their business are now more than ever seeking out strategies and solutions to address the uncertainties and risks within their business, allowing them to better control their spend.

If you are a business that effectively manages your working capital needs you have the opportunity to not only improve cash, cost and services but are also able to be more agile and flexible against your competitors and a rapidly changing economy.

Some would say Australia has fared better than the rest of the world. Certainly the big end of town continues to put an emphasis on their working capital requirements and actively manages their balance sheet to their advantage.

Getting it right can mean the difference between growth and failure!

But perhaps it is the realisation that investors are still seeking a return that has made the small end of town take this just as seriously and has helped Australia fair better.

Getting it right allows you the flexibility to introduce new divisions, key products and/or services and continue on the path of success! Getting it right means a return for your investors and the potential for more investment in the future!

Working capital has had a more profound impact on business today, than in the last 10 years. Capital raised was spent loosely during the boom times and was wasted by many companies pursuing growth at all costs. This has left Investors cautious, in my view, and now setting rules for how their money is spent. Previously businesses could carry large levels of stock and debt and be patient until sold or collected; now it is a big risk. In terms of investors’ capital, it needs much more careful management to last longer, as the ability to raise capital is harder in today’s market and costs much more to raise. Businesses that raised capital via an information memorandum, prospectus or by individual Investors would have had to develop clear milestones applied for use of the funds. Today investors expect that the CEO and key executive team are delivering those milestones and using their funds in an appropriate manner. In advising companies I strongly influence CEO’s to prioritise spend in accordance with key milestones. The reason for this is it is easy for the CEO to use the funds for other strategies or initiatives that alter the focus of the company and investors are more aware of the impact this can have on their investment. I have seen the repercussions when investment capital raised is spent frivolously and know things could have been managed much better with stronger controls in place. Outside the key milestones you are expected to deliver for your investors, you can manage working capital better by doing such things as; putting emphasis on the importance of real time information so you are getting a clear picture on your daily / weekly / monthly / quarterly and annual working capital needs; and reducing costs and increasing income for example. Many small-medium corporate businesses are limited by time and resources and struggle to put strenuous controls in place that manage cashflow, working capital and liquidity. On the flip side, large corporates have treasury departments that turn working capital management into a profit centre rather than a cost centre and they can effectively manage payment terms for customers and suppliers. However, small-medium corporates can deploy the same strategies as the large end of town only if they invest in making them work. If your business has key investors, those investors expect you to manage your business like large corporates do and work similar strategies that help with working capital management.

Seeing the Glass Half Full,

Monetising Clean Technology By Jigar Shah, CEO Carbon War Room

The lack of a comprehensive agreement on ways to reduce the impact of climate change at the Copenhagen summit in December was a disappointment. The failure of the Australian Government to pass comprehensive greenhouse gas emissions only compounded matters. However, studies by experts such as McKinsey and others suggest that at least 50% of the emissions savings needed by 2020 can be achieved through cost-effective technologies. From efficiency, advanced biofuels, renewable energy, and sequestration many of the world’s industries such as aviation, shipping, manufacturing and information technology can save money by investing in solutions. Reducing emissions drives profits, creates wealth, and staves off the worst impacts of climate change. With the pace of innovation, it is likely that these opportunities will continue to grow for decades to come. As we speak, entrepreneurs are inventing new efficiency measures that will open up even more opportunities. The challenge is to figure out why some of these technologies cannot scale up even after they have reached their cost goals. Market failures that cause these opportunities to remain inaccessible hold back progress.

customers, ports and technology companies to put a “fuel economy” sticker on the side of every ship. This allows customers to force ship owners to accelerate the use of proven technologies to reduce carbon output and save money. With a growing coalition of people passionate for change, we will be able to reduce shipping emissions by 35% within just 5 years, in addition to aiding the industry’s recovery from the recession. Catalysing new capital to support “greening” buildings, is another of the Carbon War Room’s early battles against climate change and one of the biggest opportunities. Buildings are responsible for more than 70% of all carbon emissions. That’s why, besides planning new buildings that make sense, we must refurbish those that are outdated. This will require accessible financing from national and local governments, possibly new legislation and a raft of new entrepreneurs to design and refit the buildings. The Carbon War Room is working with local governments to accelerate billions of new investment through non-recourse financing mechanisms that heretofore have not been available due to financial innovation. The last 40 years have seen great strides made in information technology, software and computing and many fortunes have been made. The next 40 years will see great progress in climate change solutions and a host of new fortunes made. This is going to be fun!

Time is short because the thirst for modern conveniences and population growth are causing us to consume more in the developed world. At the same time, providing people with access to basic electricity and services in the developing world can reduce emissions by reducing the burning of biomass. Consumption is straining the current infrastructure and resources and we must look to clever and ingenious fixes instead of more 20th century technologies. Over the past centuries, human beings have solved the most intractable problems from navigation in the high seas to putting satellites into orbit. Each new innovation helps us improve the lives of those that live without and brings great peace to the world. In June of 2008, oil hit $147/barrel leading to food crises and higher input costs throughout the world. Today, companies like BHP Billiton and others are diversifying their fuel mix to biofuels and reducing energy consumption using efficiency measures. They are not doing this to save emissions but to reduce their liability to high oil prices and increase their profitability. Human beings took a shortcut by burning oil and coal that took millions of years to produce in just a few short centuries. The next generation of technologies will allow us to switch to more sustainable forms of energy – reducing harmful price volatility and imbalanced trade deficits. The Carbon War Room recognizes that Systems do not change themselves; the world needs entrepreneurial leadership to create a post-carbon economy where humanity can thrive within global resource limitations. The world can no longer afford to be intimidated by the magnitude of the climate crisis, nor into believing that we must choose between economic prosperity and environmental security. It is time for our most talented and driven leaders come together, collaborate, and innovate until victory is assured. Each year, shipping contributes over 1 billion tons of carbon dioxide and black soot. Just 15,000 of the world’s 100,000 ships produce more than half of those emissions. The market failure is information access. Carbon War Room is working with shipping companies, governments, shipping

Optimising Growth Through an IPO By Alistair Jaque (Partner) and Leila Golchin (Associate) - Swaab Attorneys

Size is not a constraint to a successful listing. While the media and public interest tends to centre on floats of market giants, many small and medium sized companies have also listed.

The company must also meet either the profit test or the asset test:

Most companies follow the initial public offering (IPO) route to gain greater access to equity capital to fund their growth. Listing also provides companies with exposure to a wider range of investors, creates more financing opportunities and usually increases the company’s prestige in the market.

Is your company prepared for listing?

Domestic capital markets - a place for companies big and small

Your company may need to consider some or all of the following:

Smaller companies often have difficulty attracting the attention of the market which is fundamental to a successful listing. However, many smaller companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) have reaped the rewards in generating investor interest by adopting a robust investor relations strategy.

• Appointment of advisers- you may need to identify and appoint advisers to coordinate your company’s listing process. Advisers may include stockbrokers, underwriters, accountants, lawyers, tax specialists and investor relations advisers.

The ASX considers that a successful investor relations program should achieve: • a fair market valuation and lower cost of equity capital for your company • an easier and cost effective way to access capital in the future • investor support and confidence in your company which will produce a positive impact on stock liquidity. More than one third of all ASX listed companies are from the resources sector. Of these 800 companies, more than two thirds are classed as juniors or explorers. The ASX and mining industry have developed standards of reporting adopted in the Joint Ore Reserve Committee (JORC) Code which has been incorporated into the ASX Listing Rules. The purpose of the JORC Code is to ensure that mining and exploration companies adhere to minimum standards in the reporting of explorations results, resources and reserves, which has created investor confidence in the mining sector. Identifying the need for listing your company The first step in the process is to identify whether listing is appropriate for your company. This should be consistent with your company’s long-term strategic goals. The most common reasons for listing include raising capital to fund growth, expansion, facilitating an exit for early stage investors, raising a company’s public profile, ability to attract and provide an alternative incentive for employees and obtaining a market value for your business. Listed companies are able to attract professional or institutional investment as a result of the increased transparency and trading liquidity of a public listing. This may bring with it increased business credibility, stability and wider business networks. It may also increase the certainty of capital supply should you need additional capital in the future. Trading post-listing stimulates liquidity in your company’s shares, and gives shareholders the opportunity to realise the value of their holdings. This will help broaden your shareholder base, because investors know that they can readily enter and exit their holdings, and it will also facilitate further capital raising.

• the company’s aggregated profit from continuing operations for the last three full financial years must have been at least AUD$1 million and the company’s consolidated profit from continuing operations for the most recent twelve months must exceed AUD$400,000; or • at the time of admission, the company must have net tangible assets of at least AUD$2 million or a market capitalisation of at least AUD$10 million.

Directors and managers need to examine a wide range of factors in order to gauge the company’s preparedness for listing. Professional advisers are often used to assist in resolving some of these issues.

• Structural changes - you and your advisers may determine that changes to the board, operations of the business, corporate structure or your company’s constitution are necessary to facilitate your listing. • Financial reports - you will need to present comparable historical financial results in the prospectus document. • Taxation issues - the taxation issues involved in listing can be complex and should be clarified as early as possible. •Valuation - the market value of your business is central to listing. If funds are to be raised, it will affect the proportion of the company’s shares which need to be issued. It is advisable early in the process for you and your advisers to undertake some basic financial analysis to estimate a realistic valuation.

Does your company meet the criteria for listing? The ASX Listing Rules set out the specific requirements which an organisation has to meet to list on the ASX and these are underpinned by a set of principles to ensure the quality of the market, which the ASX operates. To be eligible to list on the ASX, your company must satisfy a specific set of minimum admission criteria, including structure, size and number of shareholders. The key criteria to be eligible for listing are the number of shareholders and the company size. The company must have: • at least 500 investors each having a parcel of securities with a value of AUD$2,000; or • at least 400 investors each having a parcel of securities with a value of at least AUD$2,000 and persons who are unrelated parties of the company must hold not less than 25% of the total number of securities in that class.

Executive Summary Australian Bauxite Limited (ASX: ABZ) is an exploration company holding the core of the Eastern Australian Bauxite Province. Bauxite is the ore of aluminium. The company’s 17 initial tenements covering 5,000km2 in Queensland and NSW were selected to meet 3 principles: • Good quality bauxite • Proximity to infrastructure • No socio-environmental constraints. The company’s bauxite is high quality – able to be processed at low temperature – which is in short supply globally. The company’s first drilling prospect revealed a maiden resource of 22 million tonnes from drilling less than 10% of the identified deposit. The company aspires to identify bauxite resources in excess of 200 million tonnes in one of the world’s best bauxite provinces. From its listing on ASX on 24 December 2009, the company is already creating shareholder value - and the best is yet to come.

Competitive Advantages •  Highest quality bauxite - high alumina – low silica •  Alumina mineral is the best – Gibbsite (alumin-trihydrate “THA” only) •  Strong demand for bauxite able to be processed into alumina at low temperature •  22 million tonnes identified from drilling <10% of one tenement suggest large tonnage potential •  Close to existing infrastructure – transport, coal mines, industrial centres and ports on the east coast •  100%-owned tenements with no restrictions on bauxite exports •  Aspires to identify resource in excess of 200 million tonnes •  Controls the core of the eastern Australian bauxite province

Key Investment Highlights •  Low discovery risk – deposits have been identified – more to come. •  Low entry point into a growing market with a growing company •  Deposit asset is of greater value than market capitalisation (favourable peer comparison) •  22 million tonnes JORC resource identified in <10% of one tenement – more to come •  Aggressive drilling program scheduled throughout 2010 to prove assets in excess of 200 million tonnes •  Highly experienced management team •  17 tenements control the core of the eastern Australia bauxite province •  Listed on 24 December 2009 at 0.20c per share, closed at 0.35c end February 2010 •  Bauxite is easily mined (no overburden) and easily processed •  Global demand is rising, especially from China, which has no bauxite

Bone Medical Limited (Bone) is an international biopharmaceutical development company positioned to exploit the growing market in the treatment of bone disease particularly in osteoporosis and arthritis. Bone is focussed on breakthrough treatments for bone and joint degeneration and disease, especially osteoporosis and arthritis.

Corporate Structure

Bones’s first two drug candidates are Capsitonin™, an oral formulation of calcitonin which as an injectable and nasal spray generates annual sales of approx $1 billion, and CaPTHymone™, an oral formulation of parathyroid hormone which as an injectable is also a billion dollar market, both used for treatment on osteoporosis. Bone’s lead arthritis candidate is TNF Regulators BN006 which is currently a $15 Billion market.

Exit Strategy

Bone’s strategy is to develop oral versions of currently approved injectable drugs (low risk) using the in-licensed oral delivery technology, Axcess™ and Mozaic™.

Competitive Advantages •  Substantial research experience in the development of oral protein delivery systems;

Bone Limited is a public company listed on the ASX

Being listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), Bone investors are able to readily find liquidity in their investment. Following a substantial capital raising, and successful clinical trials in the leading drug candidates, Bone will be prepared for a Large Pharmaceutical partner with the possibility of a late stage takeover. An approximate time frame for these events would be 2-4 years.

•  Successful clinical studies demonstrating effective oral delivery of therapeutic peptides; •  Novel, evidence-based drug discovery technology focussed on modification of cellular behaviour; •  Unique single therapeutic area / multi-technology platform combination permits development of coherent product pipeline; •  Low-cost business model avoiding substantial overheads and emphasizing operational flexibility •  Bone Medical trades at a steep discount to peers on both an intrinsic valuation and competitive basis. •  The leading drug candidates (Capsitonin™and CaPTHymone™) are non-new chemical entities.

Key Investment Highlights •  Portfolio approach reduces overall risk •  Strong Board and Management with specific expertise in drug development and commercialisation •  Strong project pipeline that should enable on-going development of innovative pharmaceutical products •  Bone’s technologies are well founded and have the potential to generate competitive products; •  Market opportunity remains attractively large •  Technologies are the subject of several patent applications which cover the requisite scope of Bone’s research and development effort •  Two lead products do not contain new chemical entities and their development and regulatory pathway is therefore likely to be shorter and less costly than for novel drugs. •  Potential licensing opportunity out if selected products succeed in phase II trials
