The Minutes of the previous Annual General Meeting were read, confirmed and signed

The Report of the Directors was then read by the Chairman, and was as follows:

The Directors have the pleasure to submit herewith the Accounts of the Company for the year ended 31 Mar 1924 duly certified by the Company’s Auditors.

The Trade done during the year has been fairly well maintained and the accounts show a gross profit of £17,530 to which must be added £625 received from Dividend and Rents. The Expenses of carrying on the business are still very heavy and amounted during the year to £16,030 thus leaving a net profit of £2,123. Out of this has been paid a year’s dividend on the First, and Second Preference Shares, and a third instalment has been set aside towards the redemption of the lease of 330 Liverpool Road, leaving a net balance of £45.11.5 to be set off against the loss at the 31st March 1923. The Directors regret that they cannot recommend the payment of a Dividend on the Ordinary Shares but it is satisfactory to find that the result of the Trading for the last year was an improvement on the year ended 31st March 1923.

The Auditors Messrs Marreco, Houseman, & Brandon retire, and being eligible offer themselves for re-election.

Proposed by Mr F Garrett that Messrs Marreco & Co be appointed Auditors for the ensuing year and this was seconded by Mr A Eames.

It was proposed by Mr F Garrett that the accounts submitted be passed. This was seconded by Mr A Tanner and approved. Mr F A Garrett proposed a vote of thanks to the Chairman which was accorded by those present.
