REVIEW OF THE BUSINESS – Chairman’s Statement

The past twelve months has been an unforgiving and volatile time for mining companies. During the year, we have seen metal prices falling to multi-year lows with assets being either shut down or sold by the industry titans. However, for smaller mining companies with cash, this cycle has presented opportunities to acquire cheap or distressed assets that would not otherwise have been available.

As a Company with a listing on the ISDX Growth Market, our access to capital is predominantly through UK investors, whether that be private client brokers or sophisticated and high net worth individuals. This funding route has been a very tough environment for raising capital as the sector downturn has effected investor appetite and sentiment. In spite of this, All Star successfully raised £126,000 during the year ended 31 December 2015. This has enabled the Company to strengthen its balance sheet, streamline its operations and regain stability.

On 24 July 2015, NQ Minerals Plc, a Company in which All Star anticipated holding 5,521,000 shares in, was admitted to trading on the ISDX Growth Market at the placing price of 8p per share. This admission to trading allowed All Star to attribute a valuation to its shareholding, and as at 31 December 2015 the shareholding in NQM was up over 50%, valued at £703,927.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow board member, shareholders and our advisers for their continued support and patience over the past twelve months. Clearly, the Company has turned the corner following a very difficult corporate restructuring/reorganisation over the past few years. However, the benefits of this is clear for all to see as All Star has recorded its first profit in 2015.

FINANCIALS

The financial results for the 12 month period to 31 December 2015 show a profit after taxation of £161,022 (2014: £262,645 restated loss). This turnaround in the Company’s performance is as a result of the strategic decisions made by the board in relation to the now successful restructuring of the Group. The profit recorded is the net result of the increase of the value of the NQ Minerals investment and the write off required for certain loans made to subsidiaries that have since ceased trading.

The basic earnings per share from continuing operations was 0.02p (2014:0.02p loss).

The Directors do not recommend the payment of a dividend.

OUTLOOK

Having significantly reduced losses in comparison to previous years and recorded a profit in 2015, the Directors believe that All Star has made significant progress in enabling legacy matters to be resolved and to look to the future.

The financial and operational position of All Star has positively been transformed over recent years. With the funding we have raised during the period under review, further creditors have been settled, putting the Company in its strongest position of late. While the board continues to review new projects that have the ability to complete value add propositions in the long term, the Company's working capital position still requires careful management.

OPINION ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In our opinion:

  • The financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of the Company’s affairs as at 31 December 2015 and of the profit for the year then ended;

  • The financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union;

  • The financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union and as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006; and

  • The financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006.

EMPHASIS OF MATTER – GOING CONCERN

In forming our opinion on the financial statements, which is not modified, we have considered the adequacy pf the disclosures made in the financial statements concerning the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue to trade is dependent on the performance of its investments held and continued ability to raise sufficient funds in support of its projects. Based upon the current economic climate there exists a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt around investment performance and therefore the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include the adjustments that would be necessary if the Company was unable to continue as a going concern.
