June 24th 2011, London, UK. Channel Capital Plc (“CC Plc”) has reported record year-end audited results for the year ending March 31st 2011.

Economic Profit1 for the period amounted to $17.1 million, up from $12.9 million the previous year. Positive investment performance and debt management activities contributed to these results, which were significantly ahead of budget.

This performance results in record economic return-on-investment (ROI) of 32%2, versus 24% the previous year. CC Plc reported an IFRS loss of $1.9 million for the year ending March 31st 2011, reflecting fair value adjustments to its portfolio credit default swap transactions.
