NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED INTERIM REPORT

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2009



1.  Accounting policies

Basis of preparation

The Group prepares consolidated financial statements in accordance with the measurement and recognition criteria of International Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRS') including International Accounting Standards ('IAS') and interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ('IASB') and its committees, and as interpreted by any regulatory bodies applicable to the Group, as adopted for use in the European Union and in compliance with Article 4 of the EU IAS Regulation. 

On 29 July 2009 the Company changed its accounting reference date from 31 December to 30 December.  On  27 October, the Company changed its accounting reference date to 29 December.  As permitted by the Companies Act 2006, the Company will continue to prepare its financial statements to 31 December.

This interim report is unaudited and, except as described below, has been prepared on the basis of the accounting policies set out in the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2008 As permitted by the AIM Rules, these interim statements have not been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 "Interim reporting".

The financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2009 and 30 June 2008 has not been audited and does not constitute full financial statements within the meaning of Section 240 of the Companies Act 1985. The financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2009 has not been reviewed by the Company's auditors.

The financial information relating to year ended 31 December 2008 does not constitute full financial statements within the meaning of Section 240 of the Companies Act 1985. This information is an extract of the Group's statutory accounts for that period which have been filed with the Registrar of Companies. Those statutory accounts which were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, received an unqualified report and did not contain statements under section 237(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 1985. The audit report included an emphasis of matter paragraph in relation to going concern.


Going Concern


The Directors have prepared the Interim Results for the half year to 30 June 2009 on a going concern basis. 


However, the ability of the Group to continue as a going concern depends upon three key issues:


  • The approval by Shareholders of the proposed sale of Directinet and Netcollections, and the subsequent completion of the Sale and Purchase Agreement following satisfaction of the other conditions precedent.

  • The continued support of Barclays Bank until completion and the repayment of their debt at completion.

  • The surrender of the Vincent Square leases on the basis negotiated with the landlord, settlement of which will be made from the proceeds of sale of Directinet and Netcollections.


  • The Directors have no reason to believe that the three key issues above will not be achieved and are therefore satisfied that the Company remains a going concern and has prepared these accounts on that basis


New accounting standards

The following new standards and amendments to standards are applicable to the Group for the first time for the year ending 31 December 2009:

i) IAS 1 (revised), 'Presentation of financial statements'. The revised standard prohibits the presentation of items of income and expenses (that is 'non-owner changes in equity') in the statement of changes in equity, requiring 'non-owner changes in equity' to be presented separately from owner changes in equity. All 'non-owner changes in equity' are required to be shown in a performance statement. 

As permitted, the Group has elected to present two statements: an income statement and a statement of comprehensive income. The interim financial statements have been prepared under the revised disclosure requirements.

ii) IFRS 8, 'Operating segments'. IFRS 8 replaces IAS 14, 'Segment reporting'. It requires a 'management approach' to segmental reporting under which segment information is presented on the same basis as that used for internal reporting purposes.  

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The chief operating decision-maker has been identified as the Group Board of Directors. As the Board manages the business on a geographical basis, there has been no change to the reported segments as a consequence of the adoption of IFRS 8.

There has been no impact on the measurement of the Company's assets and liabilities. 



2.  Segmental reporting

Business segments

The chief operating decision maker has been identified as the Board of Directors. The Board makes strategic and operating decisions based on internal reporting and the Group's operating segments have been determined on this basis. The Board considers the business primarily from a strategic operational perspective.
