Interim Management Report


 

Half yearly report for the period ended 28 February 2021

To the members of Fandango Holdings plc

 

Chairman's Report

Fandango Holdings PLC ("the Company") is an investment company incorporated on 25 August 2016, with the original primary objective of undertaking a single acquisition of a target company, business or asset in the industrial or service sector.

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 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.

The company continues to work with its financiers on this transaction who have continued to support the company with regard to its limited working capital requirements during this period. In addition, and contemporaneously with the above transaction, the company is also working closely with its financiers on what may be a simultaneous Reverse Takeover Transaction and the directors look forward to being able to update the market further with regard to this in the near term.

Results for the period

For the period from 1 September 2020 to 28 February 2021, the Company's results included the ongoing running costs of the Company including listing fees on the London Stock Exchange and other advisory costs.

Long-term strategy and business objectives

The company continues to seek to complete an acquisition in line with its primary objective of undertaking a single acquisition of a target company, business or asset in the industrial or service sector.

Risks and uncertainties

The Company is a relatively new entity, with only a brief operating history, and therefore, investors have no basis on which to evaluate the Company's ability to achieve its objective of identifying, acquiring and operating one or more companies or businesses.



 

Going Concern

As stated in Note 1 to the condensed financial statements, 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.
