Year End Financial Accounts

 

Fandango Holdings plc, the investment company focused on the industrial and services sectors, is pleased to provide its financial accounts for the year end 31 August 2020.

 

STRATEGIC REPORT  

 

Principal activity and fair review of the business

 

Fandango Holdings is an investment company focused on identifying and acquiring attractive assets, through which it can leverage the Board's extensive experience and track record of growing companies to build value and create significant uplift to its shareholders.

 

For the year to 31 August 2020, the Company's results include the running costs of the Company and listing fees on the London Stock Exchange standard segment. The Company's shares remain suspended.

 

Since February 2018 Fandango has made loans to Stranger Holdings PLC which were advanced during the previous accounting period and which attract interest at 10% per month (to 25 May 2018: 5% per month). The loans are repayable upon demand. The total amount of the loan outstanding at the year-end was £512,000 being the principal amount owed of £160,000 and interest of £352,000. The current balance outstanding, at the date of this report, excluding interest is £178,850. It was agreed that no further interest would accrue on these loans after 31 August 2020.

 

The company has also made loans available to Papillon Holdings PLC where a total of £100,365 was advanced in the year and attracted interest at 5% per month, repayable upon demand. The total loan balance at the year end was £119,808 being the principal amount owed of £100,365 and £19,443 in interest. The amount outstanding at the date of this report excluding interest is £112,365. It was agreed that no further interest would accrue on these loans after 31 August 2020.

 

The future

 

On 19 July 2020, the Company entered into a non-binding Heads of Terms with a group of companies (the "target") involved in construction, civil engineering, concrete and aggregates. The target's corporate finance advisors have continued to support the Company whilst the target's business has undergone structural and organisational changes during the period since the Heads of Terms were signed. The Acquisition, if it proceeds, will constitute a Reverse Takeover under the Listing Rules since, inter alia, in substance it will result in a fundamental change in the business of the issuer The Acquisition is subject, inter alia, to the completion of due diligence, documentation and compliance with all regulatory requirements, including the Listing and Prospectus Rules and, as required, the Takeover Code.

 

As the Acquisition will constitute a Reverse Takeover under the Listing Rules, the Company's shares remain suspended pending the publication of a prospectus and the application for the enlarged Company to have its Ordinary Shares admitted to the Official List and to trading on the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange.

 

The Company is working on the preparation of a prospectus in relation to the Acquisition and will, in due course, be making application for the enlarged Company to have its Ordinary Shares admitted to the Official List and to trading on the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange.

 

Key performance indicators

 

There are no key performance indicators for this period as the Company has not completed its investment activity.

 

The Company operates in an uncertain environment and is subject to a number of risk factors. The Directors have carried out a robust assessment of the risks and consider the following risk factors are of particular relevant to the Company's activities, although it should be noted that this list is not exhaustive and that other risk factors no presently known or currently deemed immaterial may apply.

 

Principal risks and uncertainties

 

i.  Business strategy

 

The Company is a relatively new entity with no operating history and has not yet completed the acquisition of a suitable investment.

 

The Company may be unable to complete a suitable acquisition in a timely manner

 

ii.  Liquidity Risk

 

The Directors have reviewed the working capital requirements and believe that there is sufficient working capital to fund the business.

 

Environmental Responsibility

 

The Company and its management believe that any matters related to environmental responsibility are not currently applicable as there are no trading activities. Nevertheless, the Company and its management acknowledge the importance of environmental responsibility and minimum compliance with local regulatory environmental requirements in the event where future trading and operational activities occur.

 

Social, community and human rights responsibility

 

The Company and its management recognise and acknowledge the responsibility under English law to promote success of the Company for the benefits of its stakeholders. The Company and its management also acknowledge and recognise the responsibility towards partners, suppliers, contractors, investors, lenders and local community in which future operational activities will take place. The Company has two employees, being the directors. At the end of the financial year there were two directors, both male.

 

Anti-corruption and anti-bribery policy

 

The Company is aware of the UK Bribery Act 2010 and any related guidelines and regulations. The Company and its management have conducted a review into its operational procedures to consider the impact of the Bribery Act 2010 and the Board has adopted anti-corruption and anti-bribery policy.

 

Going Concern

 

As stated in note 2 to the financial statements, the Directors and James Longley, a shareholder, have offered letters of support confirming that they will provide such additional working capital as necessary to enable the Company to meet all of its debts as and when they fall due for a period of at least twelve months from the date of approval of the financial statements. On this basis the Directors are satisfied that the Company 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 financial statements.

 

 Section 172 Statement

 

The Directors acknowledge their duty under s.172 of the Companies Act 2006 and consider that they have, both individually and together, acted in the way that, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the Company for the benefit of its members as a whole.

DIRECTORS' REMUNERATION REPORT

 

Introduction

 

The information included in this report is not subject to audit other than where specifically indicated.

 

Remuneration Committee

 

The remuneration committee consists of Timothy Cottier and Charles Tatnall. This committee's primary function is to review the performance of executive directors and senior employees and set their remuneration and other terms of employment.

 

The Company has only had two executive directors and no senior employees.

 

The remuneration committee determines the Company's policy for the remuneration of executive directors, having regard to the UK Corporate Governance Code and its provisions on directors' remuneration.

 

The remuneration policy

 

Each of the Directors shall be paid a fee at such rate as may from time to time be determined by the Board, but the aggregate of all such fees so paid to the Directors shall not exceed £250,000 per annum or such higher amount as may from time to time be decided by ordinary resolution of the Company. Any Director who is appointed to any executive office shall be entitled to receive such remuneration (whether by way of salary, commission, participation in profits or otherwise) as the Board or any committee authorised by the Board may decide, either in addition to or in lieu of his remuneration as a Director. In addition, any Director who performs services which in the opinion of the Board or any committee authorised by the Board go beyond the ordinary duties of a Director, may be paid such extra remuneration as the Board or any committee authorised by the Board may determine.

 

Recruitment Policy

 

Base salary levels will take into account market data for the relevant role, internal relativities, their individual experience and their current base salary. Where an individual is recruited at below market norms, they may be re-aligned over time, subject to performance in the role. Benefits will generally be in accordance with the approved policy. For external and internal appointments, the Board may agree that the Company will meet certain relocation and/or incidental expenses as appropriate.

 

Service agreements and terms of appointment (audited)

 

The directors have service contracts with the company. These contracts are not fixed term and may be terminated by either the Company or the Director by giving a 6 months' notice.

 

Directors' interests (audited)

 

The directors' interests in the share capital of the company are set out in the Directors' report. There has been no change in the directors interest from the date of the accounts to the date of this report.

The directors' interests in the share capital of the Company are set out in the Directors' report (audited).

No pension contributions were made by the company on behalf of its directors, and no excess retirement benefits have been paid out to current or past directors.

 

Payment for loss of Office

 

If a contract is to be terminated, the Company will determine such mitigation as it considers

fair and reasonable in each case.

 

The Company reserves the right to make additional payments where such payments are made in good faith in discharge of an existing legal obligation (or by way of damages for breach of such an obligation); or by way of settlement or compromise of any claim arising in connection with the termination of an Executive Director's office or employment.

 

Percentage change tables (audited)

 

The Directors have considered the requirement for the percentage change tables comparing the Chief Executive Officer's percentage change of remuneration to that of the average employee to not provide any meaningful information to the shareholders. This is due to the company not having any employees in this or the prior period with the exception of the Directors. The Directors will review the inclusion of this table for future reports.

 

Company performance graph (audited)

 

The Directors have considered the requirement for a UK 10-year performance graph comparing the Company's Total Shareholder Return with that of a comparable indicator. The Directors do not currently consider that including the graph will be meaningful because the Company has only been listed since 2017, is not paying dividends, is currently incurring losses as it gains scale and whose focus is to seek an acquisition. In addition, and as mentioned above, the remuneration of Directors is not currently linked to performance and we therefore do not consider the inclusion of this graph to be useful to shareholders at the current time. The Directors will review the inclusion of this table for future reports.

 

Relative Importance of spend on pay (audited)

 

The table below illustrates a comparison between total remuneration to distributions to

shareholders and loss before tax for the financial period ended 31 August 2020 and 31 August 2019:

Operational cash outflow has been shown in the table above as cash flow monitoring and forecasting in an important consideration for the Board when determining cash-based remuneration for Directors and employees.

 

Other matters

 

There are no other reportable matters to disclose.

 

Approval by shareholders

 

At the next annual general meeting of the company a resolution approving this report is to be proposed as an ordinary resolution. The Board considers shareholder feedback received and guidance from shareholder bodies. This feedback, plus any additional feedback received from time to time, is considered as part of the Company's annual policy on remuneration.

 

This report was approved by the board on 1 February 2021

 

 

 

 

On Behalf of the Board

Committee Chairman

 

 

 

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE REPORT

 

Policy

 

The policy of the board is to manage the affairs of the Company with reference to the UK Corporate Governance Code, which is publicly available from the Financial Reporting Council.

 

Application of principles of good governance by the board of directors

 

The board currently comprises the two directors: Charles Tatnall and Timothy Cottier.

 

There are regular board meetings each year and other meetings are held as required to direct the overall company strategy and operations with the aim of delivering long term shareholder value. The value to shareholders is to be derived from the completion of a reverse take over and subsequent profitability. Board meetings follow a formal agenda covering matters specifically reserved for decision by the board. These cover key areas of the company's affairs including overall strategy, acquisition policy, approval of budgets, major capital expenditure and significant transactions and financing issues. The Board is also responsible for the effectiveness of the Company's risk management and internal control systems. The Board believes these are working effectively, but recognises the ongoing need for identification, evaluation and management if significant risks.

 

The Board met 2 times during the year. Outside of the scheduled meetings, the directors maintain frequent contact with each other to discuss any issues of concern they may have relating to the Company or their areas of responsibility, and to keep them fully briefed on the Company's operations. Where Directors have concerns which cannot be resolved about the running of the company, or a proposed action, they will ensure that their concerns are recorded in the Board minutes.

 

 

Board Meetings Attended

 

(2 held in year)

The Board is pleased with the high level of attendance and participation of Directors at Board

and committee meetings.

 

The board has delegated certain responsibilities, within defined terms of reference, to the audit committee and the remuneration committee as described below. The Company does not have a Nomination Committee at present. The appointment of new directors is made by the board as a whole. This is considered reasonable for a Company of this size. The requirement for a Nomination Committee will be considered on an ongoing basis.

 

The board undertakes a formal annual evaluation of its own performance and that of its committees and individual directors, through discussions and one-to-one reviews with the Chairman and the senior director.

 

The Board does not comply with the provision of the UK Corporate Governance Code that at least half of the Board, excluding the Chairman, should comprise non-executive directors determined by the Board to be sufficiently independent. Similarly, the Code states that the Audit and Remuneration Committees should be made up of at least two non-executive directors. Lastly the Code requires that the members of the Audit Committee are independent.  These non-compliances are ongoing and due limited size of the Board, which the Board feels if reasonable for a Company of this size.

 

The Chairman has a number of other commitments but believes that these do not impact on his ability to direct the Board.

 

Audit committee

 

The audit committee comprises the two directors: Charles Tatnall and Timothy Cottier. and meets at least once a period. The committee's terms of reference are in accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code. The committee reviews the company's financial and accounting policies, interim and final results and annual report prior to their submission to the board, together with management reports on accounting matters and internal control and risk management systems. It reviews the auditors' management letter and considers any financial or other matters raised by both the auditors and employees. The Committee met once in the period, with full attendance.

 

The committee considers the independence of the external auditors and ensures that, before any non-audit services are provided by the external auditors, they will not impair the auditors' objectivity and independence. During the year there were no non-audit services provided to the company.

 

The Committee has primary responsibility for making recommendations to the board in respect of the appointment, re-appointment and removal of the external auditors. Having assessed the performance objectivity and independence of the auditors, the Committee will be recommending the reappointment of Jeffreys Henry LLP as auditors to the Company at the 2020 Annual General Meeting.

 

There is currently no internal audit function within the Company. The directors consider that this is appropriate of a Company of this size.

 

Remuneration Committee

 

The Remuneration Committee comprises the two directors: Charles Tatnall and Tim Cottier. The primary function of the Committee is to advise the board on overall remuneration packages of the directors after consideration of remuneration policies, employment terms, current remunerations of the Board and advisors and the policies of comparable companies in the Industry. No third parties have provided advice that materially assisted the Remuneration Committee during the year. The Committee met once in the period, with full attendance.

 

The remuneration committee determines the company's policy for the remuneration of executive directors, having regard to the UK Corporate Governance Code and its provisions on directors' remuneration. This is set out in the Directors' Remuneration report.

 

Diversity

 

The Company has not adopted a formal policy on diversity, however it is committed to a culture of equal opportunities for all, regardless of age, race or gender. The board is currently made up of two male directors, and there are no other employees in the Company.

 

Shareholder relations

 

The Board acts on behalf of it's shareholders to deliver long term value. In order to accomplish this, the Board keeps a number of channels of communication open to better understand the views of the shareholders. Open and transparent communication with shareholders is given high priority. All Directors are kept aware of changes in major shareholders in the Company and are available to meet with shareholders who have specific interests or concerns. Regular updates to record news in relation to the Company and the status of its activities released on the London Stock Exchange website.

 

The Directors are available to meet with institutional shareholders to discuss any issues and gain an understanding of the Company's business, its strategies and governance.

 

At every AGM individual shareholders are given the opportunity to put questions to the Chairman and to other members of the Board that may be present. Notice of the AGM is sent to shareholders at least 21 working days before the meeting.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT

TO THE MEMBERS OF FANDANGO HOLDINGS

 

Independent auditor's report to the members of Fandango Holdings Plc

 

Opinion

 

We have audited the financial statements of Fandango Holdings Plc (the 'Company') for the year ended 31 August 2020 which comprise the statement of comprehensive income, the statements of financial position, the statements of cash flows, the statements of changes in equity and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies.

 

The financial reporting framework that has been applied in the preparation of the financial statements is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

 

In our opinion:

the financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of the Company's affairs as at 31 August 2020 and of the Company's loss for the year then ended;

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

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

 

Basis for opinion

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) (ISAs (UK)) and applicable law. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in the UK, including the FRC's Ethical Standard as applied to listed entities, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

 

Material uncertainty related to going concern

 

We draw attention to note 2.1a) in the financial statements, which explains that the Company is dependent on the continued support of the Directors and James Longley (a shareholder) for a period of at least 12 months from the date of these financial statements. These events, or conditions, along with other matters set forth in note 2.1a), indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may cast doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

 

Emphasis of matter

 

We draw attention to Note 10 and 16 of the financial statements.

 

The Company has advanced, (including accrued interest), an amount of £511,516 to Stranger Holdings Plc ("Stranger"), as well as an amount of £119,809 to Papillon Holdings Plc (Papillon), both related parties by virtue of common control. The recovery of these loans are dependent on the companies completing reverse takeovers and capitalising the loan balances. The Directors are confident that this is achievable within 12 months.

 

The financial statements do not include the adjustments that would result if the Company were to make a provision against the above balances. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

 

Key audit matters

 

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period and include the most significant assessed risks of material misstatement (whether or not due to fraud) we identified, including those which had the greatest effect on: the overall audit strategy, the allocation of resources in the audit; and directing the efforts of the engagement team. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. This is not a complete list of all risks identified by our audit.

 

 

Key audit matter

How our audit addressed the key audit matter

Recoverability of loans - Loan balances of £511,516 due from Stranger Holdings Plc ("Stranger") and £119,809 to Papillon Holdings Plc (Papillon).

 

 

To determine if the debts are recoverable a review of the latest available management accounts for Stranger and Papillon has been undertaken.

 

 The last accounts filed for both companies showed material uncertainties relating to going concern and the latest management accounts indicate that the Company still has net liabilities.

 

Both companies are in the process of undertaking reverse take-overs. It is the intention that the loans be capitalised, once the transactions have been completed. This would imply recoverability as the equity can then be liquidated on successful re-listing of shares on the stock market.

 

Based on our review we have concluded however that there remains fundamental uncertainty as to whether the companies have adequate funding in place to trade for the next 12 months and consequently repay the loan, or complete their respective reverse take overs

 

We have accordingly decided to include an Emphasis of Matter in relation to the recoverability of the loan.

Going concern - A key aspect of our audit was to review the Directors' work surrounding the going concern assumption for Fandango Holdings Plc

 

The Directors prepare forecasts which cover a period of 12 months to satisfy themselves that it is appropriate to prepare the accounts on a going concern basis. 

Our work in this are included the following:

 

§ Critical assessment of the Directors' going concern assessment, challenging the forecast and key assumptions;

 

§ Assessment of the cash flow forecast for committed and contracted expenditure versus discretionary expenditure, compared to the level of available cash resources;

 

§ Review of the Company's strategy and progress since the period end to understand the likelihood of its success and impact on cash flow; and

• Reviewed the letter of support provided by management and enquired about management's ability to provide sufficient working capital for a period of at least 12 months from the date of this report.

 

§ Assessment of the adequacy of disclosures in the Financial Statements.

 

 

Our application of materiality

 

The scope of our audit was influenced by our application of materiality. We set certain quantitative thresholds for materiality. These, together with qualitative considerations, helped us to determine the scope of our audit and the nature, timing and extent of our audit procedures on the individual financial statement line items and disclosures and in evaluating the effect of misstatements, both individually and in aggregate on the financial statements as a whole.

 

Based on our professional judgment, we determined materiality for the financial statements as a whole as follows:

Overall materiality

£4,000 (2019: 3,700).

How we determined it

10% of loss before tax. (2019: 5% of loss before tax).

We believe that profit/loss is the primary measure used by the shareholders in assessing the performance of the Company, and is a generally accepted auditing benchmark.

 

 

We agreed with the board that we would report to them misstatements identified during our audit above £200 (2019: £310) as well as misstatements below those amounts that, in our view, warranted reporting for qualitative reasons.

 

An overview of the scope of our audit

 

As part of designing our audit, we determined materiality and assessed the risks of material misstatement in the financial statements. In particular, we looked at where the directors made subjective judgments, for example in respect of significant accounting estimates that involved making assumptions and considering future events that are inherently uncertain. As in all of our audits we also addressed the risk of management override of internal controls, including evaluating whether there was evidence of bias by the directors that represented a risk of material misstatement due to fraud.

 

How we tailored the audit scope

 

We tailored the scope of our audit to ensure that we performed enough work to be able to give an opinion on the financial statements as a whole, taking into the accounting processes and controls.

 

Other information

 

The directors are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the annual report, other than the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon. Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and, except to the extent otherwise explicitly stated in our report, we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

 

In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If we identify such material inconsistencies or apparent material misstatements, we are required to determine whether there is a material misstatement in the financial statements or a material misstatement of the other information. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

 

Opinions on other matters prescribed by the Companies Act 2006

 

In our opinion the part of the directors' remuneration report to be audited has been properly prepared in accordance with the Companies Act 2006.

 

In our opinion, based on the work undertaken in the course of the audit:

 

the information given in the strategic report and the directors' report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements; and

the strategic report and the directors' report have been prepared in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

 

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

 

In the light of the knowledge and understanding of the Company and its environment obtained in the course of the audit, we have not identified material misstatements in the strategic report or the directors' report.

 

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters in relation to which the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if, in our opinion:

 

adequate accounting records have not been kept by the Company,

the Company financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and returns; or

certain disclosures of directors' remuneration specified by law are not made; or

we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit.

 

Responsibilities of directors

 

As explained more fully in the directors' responsibilities statement set out on page 7, the directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view, and for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

 

In preparing the financial statements, the directors are responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the directors either intend to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

 

Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements

 

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (UK) will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

 

A further description of our responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements is located on the Financial Reporting Council's website at:

 

www.frc.org.uk/auditorsresponsibilities. This description forms part of our auditor's report.

 

Other matters which we are required to address

 

We were appointed as auditors by the Company on 8 May 2017. Our total uninterrupted period of engagement is 4 years covering the period ending 25 August 2016 to 31 August 2020.

 

The non-audit services prohibited by the FRC's Ethical Standard were not provided to the Company and we remain independent of the Company in conducting our audit.

 

Jeffreys Henry LLP had been employed to prepare tax returns for the Company and in preparation of accounts of the target of the reverse takeover, but no such services have been provided for the current period.

 

Our audit opinion is consistent with the additional report to the audit committee.

 

Use of this report

 

This report is made solely to the Company's members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the Companies Act 2006. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company's members those matters we are required to state to them in an auditor's 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 and the Company's members as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2020

 

1  General information  

Fandango Holdings PLC ('the Company') is an investment company incorporated and domiciled in the United Kingdom. The address of the registered office is disclosed on the company information page at the front of the annual report.  The Company was incorporated and registered in England on 25 August 2016 as a private limited company and re-registered as a public limited company on 8 May 2017.

 

2  Accounting policies  

 

2.1Basis of Accounting

 

This financial information has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), including IFRIC interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) as adopted by the European Union and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention. The principal accounting policies adopted are set out below. 

 

  These policies have been consistently applied. 

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgment or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the consolidated financial statements are disclosed in Note 3. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Although these estimates are based on management's experience and knowledge of current events and actions, actual results may ultimately differ from these estimates.

 

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an on-going basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised if the revision affects only that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods.

 

a)  Going concern

 

These financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that the Company is a going concern. When assessing the foreseeable future, the Directors have looked at a period of at least twelve months from the date of approval of this report and have looked at the adequacy of funds required as well as working capital requirements of the Company.

 

The Company continues to be loss-making and has very limited cash balances to pay it's debts as and when they fall due. The Directors and James Longley, a shareholder, have provided letters of support confirming that they will provide such additional working capital as necessary to enable the Company to meet all of its debts as and when they fall due for a period of at least twelve months from the date of approval of the financial statements. On this basis the Directors are satisfied that the Company 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 financial statements.

 

b)  New and amended standards adopted by the Company

 

There are no IFRSs or IFRIC interpretations that are effective for the first time for the financial year beginning that would be expected to have a material impact on the Company.

 

Standards, interpretations and amendments to published standards that are not yet effective

 

Standards, amendments and interpretations to published standards

There are no IFRSs or IFRIC interpretations that are effective for the first time for the financial year beginning that would be expected to have a material impact on the Company. The new IFRSs adopted during the year are as follows:

· IFRS 16 - Leases

· IAS 19 - Employee Benefits (amendment)

 

The following new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations have been issued, but are not effective for the financial period beginning 1 September 2019 and have not been early adopted. The Directors anticipate that the adoption of these standard and the interpretations in future periods will have no material impact on the financial statements of the Company.

 

The new standards include:

IFRS 3  Business Combinations (amendment)1

IFRS 16   Leases (amendment)1

IFRS 17  Insurance Contracts2

IAS 1   Presentation of Financial Statements1

IAS 8  Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors1

 

1 Effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2020

2 Effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2021

 

2.2  Financial instruments

 

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

 

  Other receivables

 

Other receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Subsequent to the initial recognition, other receivables are measured at amortised cost less impairment losses for bad and doubtful debts.

 

Expected credit losses are calculated as the difference between the carrying amount of financial asset and the estimated future cash flows, discounted where the effect of discounting is material.

 

  Cash and cash equivalents

 

  Cash and cash equivalents comprised of cash at bank and in hand.

 

  Fair values

 

The carrying amounts of the financial assets and liabilities such as cash and cash equivalents, receivables and payables of the Company at the statement of financial position date approximated their fair values, due to relatively short-term nature of these financial instruments.

 

  Other payables

 

Other payables are initially recognised at fair value and thereafter stated in amortised cost.

 

2.3  Share capital

 

Ordinary shares are classified as equity.

Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new ordinary shares or options are shown in equity as a deduction, net of tax, from the proceeds.

 

2.4  Taxation

 

Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax.

 

There is no tax payable as the Company has made a taxable loss for the year. Taxable loss differs from net loss as reported in the statement of comprehensive income because it excludes items of income and expense that are taxable or deductible in other years, and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The Company's liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period.

 

Deferred tax is recognised on temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the consolidated financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit or loss. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences.

 

Deferred tax assets are generally recognised for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which those deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such deferred tax assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary differences arise from goodwill or from the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.

 

Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries, except where the Company is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated with such investments are only recognised to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficient taxable profits against which to utilise the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected to reverse in the foreseeable future.

 

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at the end of each reporting period and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period in which the liability is settled or the asset realised. The measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities reflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the Company expects, at the end of the reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities.

 

Current or deferred tax for the year is recognised in profit or loss, except when it relates to items that are recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity, in which case the current and deferred tax is also recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity respectively.

 

2.5  Segmental reporting

 

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The chief operating decision-maker, who is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments, has been identified as the steering committee that makes strategic decisions. In the opinion of the director, the Company has one class of business, being that of an investment company. The Company's primary reporting format is determined by the geographical segment according to the location of its establishments. There is currently only one geographic reporting segment, which is the UK. All costs are derived from the single segment.

 

3  Critical accounting estimates and judgments

 

The Company makes certain judgements and estimates which affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities. Critical judgements and the assumptions used in calculating estimates are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The most notable judgement is considered to be the expected credit loss on loans to related parties, as discussed in Note 10.

 

In the process of applying the Company's accounting policies, which are described above, the Directors do not believe that they have had to make any assumptions or judgements that would have a material effect on the amounts recognised in the financial information.

 

4  Financial risk management

 

The Company's activities may expose it to some financial risks. The Company's overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the Company's financial performance.

 

a)  Liquidity risk

 

Liquidity risk is the risk that Company will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities. The responsibility for liquidity risks management rest with the Board of Directors, which has established appropriate liquidity risk management framework for the management of the Company's short term and long-term funding risks management requirements. During the period under review, the Company has not utilised any borrowing facilities. The Company manages liquidity risks by maintaining adequate reserves by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows, and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities.

 

b)  Capital risk

 

The Company takes great care to protect its capital investments. Significant due diligence is undertaken prior to making any investment. The investment is closely monitored.

 

c)  Credit risk

 

The Company has provided loans to companies. The Company assesses the creditworthiness, prior to providing the loans to limit the risk of default.

No liability to UK corporation tax arose on ordinary activities for the current period.

 

The Company has estimated excess management expenses of £465,748 (2019: £421,040) available for carry forward against future trading profits.

 

The tax losses have resulted in a deferred tax asset at a rate of 19% (2019: 19%) of approximately £88,492 (2019: £71,577) which has not been recognised in the financial statements due to the uncertainty of the recoverability of the amount.

Due to the loss in the periods, the effect of the warrants was considered anti-dilutive and hence no diluted loss per share information has been provided

 

The number of shares on a diluted basis relates to the issue of 25,000,000 warrants to the Directors which confers the right but not the obligation to subscribe in cash for up to 25,000,000 £0.01p Ordinary Shares at the subscription price.

 

9  Capital risk management

 

The Directors' objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Company's ability to continue as a going concern in order to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital. At the date of this financial information, the Company had been financed by the introduction of capital. In the future the capital structure of the Company is expected to consist of borrowings and equity attributable to equity holders of the Company, comprising issued share capital and reserves.
