SYIF Profile Summer 2008 Newsletter

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the latest edition of Profile.

Firstly, may I update you on the latest news regarding the Successor Fund. SYIF and Yorkshire Forward continue to work closely together regarding the development of the Successor Fund in 2009 and the interim arrangements to ensure that businesses can continue to access finance when they need it. Talks are progressing well and we will let everyone know at the earliest opportunity as soon as we are able to announce more details.

Also, in this edition we highlight SYIF's new interest rebate scheme designed to ensure our loans continue to provide affordable gap finance for local businesses. If you would like more information on the new scheme please talk to one of the team or go to http://www.syif.com/finance/loans

SYIF continues to provide financial support to businesses across South Yorkshire when alternative finance may not be available. Examples of some of our recent investments are highlighted in this newsletter; Activ4life, The Real Yorkshire Pudding Company, Numill Ltd and Rocksure Systems.

An area of achievement has been the support SYIF has provided in manufacturing companies, which we highlight in this edition of Profile. More than 160 investments have been made by SYIF in the Advanced Metals and Manufacturing and Engineering Sectors, an industry which continues to thrive in South Yorkshire.

We do hope you enjoy reading this latest edition of Profile.

Chief Executive
South Yorkshire Investment Fund Ltd
