Doric Nimrod Air One has published accounts covering the year to the end of March 2014.
There has been no change to the 2.25p per quarter dividend payment and the company has not changed the residual value of the aircraft it owns. The net asset value rose to 107p from 92p – this largely reflects foreign exchange movements.
