CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER'S STATEMENT

FOR THE SIX MONTH PERIOD ENDED 30 NOVEMBER 2017

 

 

I am delighted to report this first set of financial results following the recent strategic expansion of the Group. Good progress has been made in the first half of the current financial year with all the existing entities within the Group and each of the acquired entities delivering profits in line with expectations.

 

Group revenue amounted to £13.9m (H1 2016/17: £8.0m). This comprised £9.8m (H1 2016/17: £8.0m) at Onepm, Academy and Bradgate, an organic increase of 23%, and £4.1m from the recently acquired subsidiaries, iLoans, Gener8 and Positive.  Included in revenue is £2.4m (H1 2016/17: £1.0m) of commission income in respect of the broked-on activities.

 

Profit before tax and exceptional costs increased to £3.6m (H1 2016/17: £2.0m). Profit after tax in the period rose to £2.7m (H1 2016/17: £1.6m).  Earnings per share ("EPS") increased 4.9% to 3.23p (H1 2016/17: 3.08p). EPS has been calculated on a weighted average basis taking into account the issue of 31,158,955 new ordinary shares of 10p each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") during the period in connection with the share placing and open offer in June 2017 and the earn-out arrangements relating to the acquisition of Academy in 2015 and Bradgate in 2016.  At the period end, a total of 86,100,936 Ordinary Shares were in issue.

 

The Group paid a single final dividend in respect of the financial year ended 31 May 2017.  It is the Board's intention to continue this policy with one dividend payment, being a final dividend, in respect of the current financial year ending 31 May 2018.

 

At the period end, the Group's consolidated net assets stood at £44.5m (31 May 2017: £28.5m), an increase of 56%.

The Group's goal is to achieve a market capitalisation of £100m. The objectives that will enable this goal to be achieved and which shape the strategic plan remain as follows:

 

·              building scale through operating a model of distributed separate subsidiary entities

·              having a multi-channel and multi-product offering for business lending to SMEs

·              maintaining risk mitigation through funding and broking capability

·              being 'digitally capable'

·              strictly adhering to underwriting policies and credit control procedures, and

·              being geared appropriately with cost-effective funding facilities

 

The Board is pleased with the further strategic progress made during the period to 30 November 2017.  At period end the Group comprised six trading subsidiaries operating from seven sites in the UK with 158 employees serving over 16,000 SME businesses. It is organised into three profitable product groups; Asset Finance including vehicles, Loans and Commercial Finance.

 

The Board is confident that the Group is maintaining its commitment to provide a range of finance solutions to support the UK SME sector whilst delivering profitable growth to further increase shareholder value.

 

 

The Group's capital management objective is to maintain a strong capital base to support its current operations and planned growth whilst continuing to reduce its cost of capital in order to provide increasing returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders.  To meet these objectives, the Group has implemented a centralised Treasury function and adopted a policy of sourcing different funding instruments appropriate to each of the financial products it provides:

 

·   In respect of Asset Finance, the Group is continuing to increase its block discount facilities and pursue complementary credit instruments that will reduce the overall cost of borrowing.

 

·    In respect of Loans, the Group utilises block discount facilities and a Secured Loan Note facility, comprising loans from high net worth individuals, and

 

·   In respect of Commercial Finance, the Group utilises 'back-to-back' bank facilities for lending against client receivables.

 

In each case, security is provided to each lender in the form of an assignment of the underlying lease, loan or invoice receivables.

 

 

Principal risks and uncertainties

There are a number of potential risks and uncertainties which could have a material impact on the Group's performance over the remaining six months of the financial year and could cause actual results to differ materially from expected and historical results.  The directors do not consider that the principal risks and uncertainties have changed since the publication of the annual report for the year ended 31 May 2017.  A detailed explanation of the risks summarised below, and how the Group seeks to mitigate the risks, can be found on page 8 of the annual report which is available at

 

The key risks identified and which the Board has reasonable expectation are appropriately mitigated are:

 

·    Credit Risk - the risk of default, potential write-off, disruption to cash flow and increased recovery costs on a debt that is not repaid individually, or if there is a wider market deterioration.

·    Funding Risk - the general risk of the Group not being able to meet its current and future financial obligations over time and specifically that funding is not available to meet the Group's growth targets.

·    Acquisition Risk - the risk that the Group's acquisition programme does not deliver value, overstretches resource beyond its capacity or has failed to identify problems within the acquired businesses.

·    Regulatory Risk - the risk of legal or regulatory action resulting in fines, penalties and sanctions that could arise from the Group's failure to identify and adhere to regulatory requirements in the UK. In addition, there is the risk that new or enhanced regulations could adversely impact the Group.

 

 

Responsibility Statement

The directors confirm that to the best of their knowledge:

 

 

 

 

 

Outlook

Demand for finance from UK SMEs, whether for their business-critical assets, vehicles, loans, or funding against invoices, continues to be strong. This level of demand is encouraging given an increasingly competitive market for alternative, non-bank finance and against the background of economic uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process. The Board continues to see opportunities for further organic growth from cross-selling and new business origination. Additionally, there are opportunities for further strategic growth from new product introductions and the application of financial technology. The Board looks forward with confidence to the continued success of the business in the remainder of the current financial year.

 

By order of the Board,

 

Ian Smith

Chief Executive Officer, 1pm plc

We have been engaged by the company to review the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 November 2017 which comprises the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position, the Consolidated Cash Flow Statement, the Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity and related notes 1 to 9.  We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed set of financial statements.

This report is made solely to the company in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity", issued by the Auditing Practices Board.  Our work has been undertaken so that we might state to the company those matters we are required to state in an independent review report and for no other purpose.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company, for our review work, for this report, or for the conclusions we have formed.

The half-yearly financial report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors.  The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly financial report in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Services Authority. As disclosed in note 1, the annual financial statements of the Group are prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.  The condensed set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, "Interim Financial Reporting", as adopted by the European Union.

Our responsibility is to express to the company a conclusion on the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report based on our review.

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, "Review of Interim Financial Information performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the Auditing Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom.  A review of interim financial information consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures.  A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit.  Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 November 2017

The financial information set out in the interim report does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 434(3) and 435(3) of the Companies Act 2006.  The Group's statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 May 2017 prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the European Union and with the Companies Act 2006 have been filed with the Registrar of Companies.  The auditor's report on those financial statements was unqualified and did not contain a statement under Section 498(2) of the Companies Act 2006.  These interim financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies set out in the most recently available public information, which are based on the recognition and measurement principles of IFRS in issue as adopted by the European Union (EU) and are effective at 31 May 2017.  The condensed set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union.

The financial information for the six months ended 30 November 2016 and the six-month period to 30 November 2017 are unaudited and do not constitute the Group's statutory financial statements for these periods.  The accounting policies have been applied consistently throughout the Group for the purposes of preparation of these interim financial statements.

The directors are satisfied that the Group has sufficient resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future, a period of not less than 12 months from the date of this report.  Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed financial statements.

IFRS 9, 'Financial Instruments' has been issued but is not yet effective and has not been adopted as application was not mandatory for the year.  The introduction of the standard is likely to have some impact on the Group.  An assessment is in progress to understand and assess the full impact of this standard before it becomes effective in January 2019.

IFRS 16, 'Leases' has been issued but is not effective until January 2019.  The new standard has not been adopted as application was not mandatory for the year.  The standard will eliminate the classification of leases as either operating or finance leases and result in operating leases being treated as finance leases. This will result in previously recognised operating leases being treated as property, plant and equipment and a finance lease creditor.  The issue of the standard will increase the value of property, plant and equipment and the finance lease liability on the balance sheet, but the adoption of this standard will not have a material impact on the profit of the Group.
