CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

I am pleased to report the Group's audited results for the financial year ended 31 March 2016.

 

Turnover for continuing operations in the year increased by 5.2% to £3.87m (2015: £3.68m).  This increase was mainly due to the significant growth in construction contracts which grew by   a remarkable 37.8%. The increased income from construction contract income was offset to some extent by a decrease in  maintenance income.

 

 

Looking forward, the Board expects the large infrastructure projects and the line extension of the MTR Corporation Limited ("MTRC") in Hong Kong to provide the Company with opportunities for business growth in the coming years and given the Board's confidence in the future, it is declaring an increased final dividend of 0.41 HK cents (gross) per share for the financial year ended 31 March, 2016 (2015: 0.39 HK cents)

 

The Directors remain confident of the future of UniVision and are optimistic about the Group's prospects.

 

 

DISPOSAL OF TAIWANESE SUBSIDIARY

 

As announced on 28 June 2016, the Group has entered into an agreement to sell its entire interest in its Taiwan subsidiary- T-Com Technology Company Limited ("the Subsidiary" or "T-Com") to Mr. Stephen Koo, the Executive Chairman of the Group.

 

The Subsidiary recorded a substantial operating loss of NTD23m (£478K) for the year ended 31 March, 2016. Poor trading and economic conditions led to the sharp decrease in its construction revenue and its gross profit. The weak economic situation and the reduction of capital expenditure and budgets by the local government and private sector customers for improving and replacement of their surveillance systems, led to the substantial decrease in job orders in the Taiwan subsidiary.

 

The Board sees no immediate prospect for improvement in the situation. Before the disposal, the Group owned 52.25% interest in the Subsidiary and shared the losses it suffered pro rata to that holding. The terms of the disposal enable UniVision to avoid any share of future losses. It also provides the option for the Group to repurchase the company if the business returns to profitability within the next five years.

 

The terms of the sale provide for consideration of HK$600K to be settled in cash. In addition, the Group will receive repayment of outstanding debts and other amounts due from the Subsidiary within 24 months of completion

 

Mr. Stephen Koo currently provides a personal guarantee for the banking facilities of T-Com  and due to the requirement for a third party purchaser to replace this guarantee, and having regard to the poor operating results and the difficult trading conditions,  the Board considered this arrangement to be the best available to the Group. .

 

 

 

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

                                                                                                                                   (Continued)

 

The disposal enables UniVision's Management to focus attention and resources on its local security and surveillance business.

 

The value of the assets and liabilities of T-Com were £3,617K and £3,215K as 31 March, 2016, respectively which were included in the financial statements as Assets/Liabilities of Disposal Group classified as held for sale. The net value was £402k as at 31 March 2016.

 

The operating result of T-Com for this year: loss £478K (2015: profit £110K) is presented in the financial statements as loss/profit from discontinued operations.

 

Completion of the sale process is underway and notarised documents for the proposed share transfer have been submitted to the Taiwan authorities for approval.

 

 

POTENTIAL CLAIM

 

Legal proceedings were initiated by Nan Ning Hai Li Real Estate Development Limited ("Hai Li" or the "Plaintiff") against Mr Stephen Koo and UniVision in the Hong Kong High Court on 10 March 2016. The Plaintiff has claimed damages in respect of breach of contract and/or duty for a share transfer agreement which it claims was entered between Hai Li and Mr Stephen Koo for the purchase of Stephen Koo's 41% shareholding in UniVison on 14 December 2015 and in a series of oral agreements between Hai Li and Mr Stephen Koo and UniVision represented by Mr Stephen Koo made before and after the 14 December 2015. As announced on 25 April 2016, Mr Koo and UniVision received the Acknowledgement of Service of Writ of Summons from the solicitor of the Plaintiff and have returned to the Registry of the High Court the accompanying Acknowledgment of Service contesting the proceedings. 

 

As announced on 24 August 2016, Mr Stephen Koo and UniVision have received the Statement of Claim from the solicitor of the Plaintiff and their legal counsel is now drafting a Defence based on the evidence. The Defence is expected to be filed with the Court by early September, 2016.

 

Based on preliminary legal opinion the directors believe that the allegations and the causes of action as set out in the Statement of Claim are not at all clear and doubt that the Plaintiff can substantiate them. Accordingly UniVision is applying to the Court to strike out the claims against it.

 

 

FINANCIAL REVIEW 

 

'Continuing operations' represent the Group's Security and Surveillance Systems business undertaken by the Hong Kong Company. The same business undertaken by the Taiwan Subsidiary is now classified as discontinued operations. The loss from the discontinued operations during the year was £478K (2015: profit £110K).

 

The profit from the continuing operations attributable to the equity holders of the Company is £138K (2015: £33K). Having regard to the low economic growth and keen competitive environment the Directors are encouraged by this result.

 

The Group generated positive net cash of £22K from its operating activities in the year (2015: £328K). The Hong Kong company, in which the continuing operations are based has no external

                                                                                                                                   (Continued)

 

loan and maintained a cash balance of £0.65m at the year end. The Directors attribute this to close monitoring and effective control of working capital. The group as a whole had cash and cash equivalents at 31 March 2016 of £0.95m (31 March 2015: £1.2m).

 

During the year under review the relative strengthening of the HK$ against GBP has led to a 6.9% appreciation in the GBP reported amount in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income. Also, a relative strengthening of HK$ at the year-end has led to a 2.9% appreciation in the GBP reporting amount in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. All figures in the Financial Statements therefore needed to be adjusted for comparison purposes.

 

Turnover from continuing operations in the year increased by 5.2% to £3.87m (2015: £3.68m).  This increase was mainly due to the significant growth in construction contract income. .The revenue from construction contracts (excluding discontinued operations) increased by 38% or £0.6m as compared with last year. The growth of construction revenue in Hong Kong was mainly due to the income of £290K from the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Project, and £264K from the South Island Line Project. Additionally construction contracts, including the installation, relocation, modification and replacement works were provided by MTR Corporation Limited. These projects show the Company's ability to win and deliver on projects in a highly competitive environment.

 

On the other hand, the revenue of the Group's maintenance contracts (excluding discontinued operations) compared with last year declined by 34.2% mainly due to the change of scope in the services provided in the new maintenance contract to MTRC, a three year contract commencing on 1 January 2015. In addition, fewer sub-contract orders were received because the coming major CCTV replacement project for the railway lines of MTRC will be launched in 2017. Nevertheless, maintenance contract and its sub-contracts provided regular cash flow for the Group's operations. 

 

Gross profit margin for continuing operations increased to 32% (2015: 29%). The major reason was the increase in gross profit from 18% to 33% in the Group's construction contracts These increment was contributed from a few orders with comparatively high profit margin. The effective and efficient control of human resources, material costs, logistics and sub-contracting charges also contributed the increment.

 

The higher gross profit of construction segment offset the effect by decrease in gross profit margin of maintenance contracts. The gross profit margin for the Group's maintenance business for the period was decreased 8% due to the initial purchase cost for installation of equipment in the main maintenance contract with MTRC and increased cost for changing parts for systems.

 

Against the improved gross profit, administration expenses for continuing operations remained constant at £955K (2015: £892K)

 

Net profit before income tax from continuing operations was £138K (2014: £33K). Basic profit from continuing operations per share for this year was 0.04p (2015: 0.01p).

 

No significant capital investment occurred in the year.

 

The directors propose the payment of a final dividend of 0.41 HK cents (gross) per share for the financial year ended 31 March, 2016 (2015: 0.39 HK cents). The dividend timetable is as follows:

BUSINESS REVIEW

 

Markets

 

According to Tech Navio's analysts' forecast, the Global Video Surveillance market will grow steadily at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 22 per cent over the period of four years from 2016 to 2020. The increasing demand for wireless network infrastructure is the key growth driver for this market. Moreover, the increase in concern over security and the demand to replace analogue systems with Internet protocol based systems, is also expected to boost the market in the forecast period.

 

High demand for the IP cameras is expected because the total cost of operations is lower than with analogue cameras. Besides, IP cameras are more flexible and secure than analogue cameras.

 

UniVision will commit resources to accessing and developing new technologies and solutions to cope with the opportunities in Internet Protocol and High Definition CCTV System technology. 

 

Based on the above, the Board anticipates demand for Security and Surveillance Systems from local government infrastructure projects and the commercial sector will increase in coming years. On the other hand, there may well be increased competition leading to reduced income and so the Company will explore other market segments, such as rolling stock business in the railway to strengthen the business growth.

 

 

 

Business

 

During the year, the Hong Kong Company has participated in the Pre-Qualification process for the CCTV Replacement project for Hong Kong MTR.  The project is expected to replace about 6,500 analogue-based CCTV cameras from with IP-based units. Since our Company currently is the CCTV System maintainer for MTR, we are in a good position to bid for this project.

 

To support the Pre-Qualification, the Company is negotiating partnership arrangements with certain PRC enterprises. This will be facilitated by the disposal of UniVision's interest in T-Com, its Taiwanese subsidiary on the ground that tendering for government projects is not allowed if there is PRC funding in its shareholding company. The strategy also optimises the Group's operational efficiency. This disposal should improve the operating result of T-Com.

 

After the de-merger of Leader Smart Group, the Security and Surveillance Systems business is the only business segment of the Group. The major customers are public organisations and sizeable private enterprises, such as the Electricial and Mechanical Services Department ("EMSD") of the Hong Kong Government and MTRC in Hong Kong which are the two largest customers in this financial year. 

 

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

                                                                                                                                   (Continued)

 

 

PROSPECTS

 

.

The Board expects that the growing demand for its network and high definition security and surveillance products will enable the Group to continue to prosper in these markets.

 

The Company continues to actively tender for new construction contracts while maintaining its stake in the maintenance sector of Security & Surveillance market. In view of the subsequent completion of some major infrastructure projects, such as the Third Runway of Hong Kong International Airport and extension of railway lines, such as the new line Shatin-Central, the Board is optimistic about the prospects for business growth in the coming years.

 

Finally, on behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our customers, suppliers and shareholders for their continued support of UniVision. I would also like to acknowledge the hard work of the management and all the staff for their contribution and dedication to the Group.

Directors' Interests in Contracts and Interests in Shares

Details of Directors' Interests in Contracts and Interests in Shares are given in the Directors' Report.

 

 

REPORT ON CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Introduction

The Directors believe that their foremost function is to generate continuous profits for the Company's investors, and that this should be achieved by a policy of high standards of corporate governance, integrity and ethics.  As the Company is listed on AIM and not subject to the Listing Rules of the UK Listing Authority, it is not officially required to comply with the provisions detailed in the Combined Code on Corporate Governance.  However, it is the intention of the Board to manage the Company's and Group's affairs in accordance with this Code, in so far as is practical and appropriate for a public company of this size and complexity.  The following are a few examples on how the Directors have applied the principles of good corporate governance to manage the Company throughout the year.

 

Board of Directors

The Board directs and controls the Company and is responsible for strategy and operating performance.  It meets regularly throughout the year and has adopted a schedule of matters specifically reserved for its decision.

 

All Directors are elected by shareholders at the first opportunity after their initial appointment to the Board and to be re-elected thereafter at intervals of not more than three years.  Biographical information on all the Directors is listed in the Directors' and Senior Management's Biographies section to the annual report, which may help the shareholders to make a decision at the time of re-election.

 

Upon their appointments, the Directors are offered an opportunity to request information and training relevant to their legal and other duties.  They are also given written guidelines and rules defining their responsibilities within an AIM listed company.

 

The Board considers that all Non-executive Directors are independent of management and day to day operation, and free from any commercial relationship with the Company.  These Non-executive Directors do not participate in any of the Company's pension schemes or bonuses.  The Chairman of the Audit and Remuneration Committees is a Non-executive Director.

 

Nomination Committee

As the Board of Directors of the Company is relatively small, there is no separate Nomination Committee. All nominations to the Board are considered by all of the Directors.

 

Audit Committee

Our Audit Committee comprises Mr. Nicholas James LYTH (our Non-executive Director) and Mr. Stephen Sin Mo KOO (our Executive Chairman) and is chaired by Mr. Nicholas James LYTH.  The Chairman of the Audit Committee has full discretion to invite any Executive Directors to attend its meetings.  The Audit Committee meets not less than twice per annum.

 

 

REPORT ON CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 (Continued)

 

The responsibilities of the Committee are to:

 

-     monitor the quality of the overall internal control system of all financial matters;

-     review the Company's Accounting Policies and ensure compliance with accounting standards;

-     ensure that the financial performance of the Company is properly measured and reported on;

-     consider the appointment/re-appointment of the external auditor;

-     review the conduct of the audit and discuss the audit fees;

-     review reports from the Auditors relating to the Company's accounting and internal controls;

-     to ensure the Company complies with the AIM Rules.

 

 

Remuneration Committee

Our Remuneration Committee comprises Mr. Nicholas James LYTH (our Non-executive Director) and Mr. Stephen Sin Mo KOO (our Executive Chairman) and is chaired by Mr. Nicholas James LYTH.  The Remuneration Committee meets as required. 

 

The responsibilities of the Committee are to:

-     determine the specific remuneration package for each Director including Director's fees,    salaries, allowances, bonuses, options, benefits-in-kind; and

-     seek for professional advice, including comparison with similar businesses, in order to correctly fulfil its duties, as the Committee deems appropriate.

 

In discharging its functions, the Committee may obtain independent external legal and other professional advices as it deems necessary.  The expense of such advice shall be borne by the Company.

 

Internal Control

The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that the Company maintains an internal financial control system with appropriate monitoring procedures for all Group companies.  The purpose of this system is to safeguard Company assets, maintain proper accounting records, and ensure that reliable financial information is used within the Group and for publication purposes.  However, the system is designed to manage rather than completely eliminate risk and can only provide reasonable but not absolute assurance against material misstatement.

 

In order to achieve the above responsibilities, the Board meets regularly and monitors the Company's internal financial control by reviewing the overall process and the performance of the systems, setting annual budgets and periodic forecasts, and seeking any prior approval for all significant expenditure.

 

The Group currently does not have an internal audit department and after extensive review and consideration, the Board has concluded that the existing control mechanisms are sufficient for the size of the Group.  This decision will be kept under review.

 

 

 

REPORT ON CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 (Continued)

 

Going Concern

After making appropriate enquiries, the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company and the Group have adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.  For this reason, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the Company's and Group's financial statements.

 

Investor Relations

The Company realises that effective communication can increase transparency and accountability to its shareholders; as such, the Company discloses its information to its shareholders through RNS (i.e. the news distribution service operated by the London Stock Exchange plc).  The same information can also be found on the Company's website (www.uvel.com).  The Company will make every effort to ensure that all price-sensitive information is released publicly and immediately.  If an immediate announcement is not possible, the Company will try to publicize the information at the earliest time possible to ensure that the shareholders and the public have fair access to it.

 

The Company will send the Annual Report and the notice of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to all its shareholders.  This notice is also made available on RNS.  The Company recognises the importance of the shareholders' views and encourages them to attend the AGMs where they can share their opinions and raise direct queries and concerns towards the Directors, including the chairperson of each of the Board Committees.  The shareholders are also welcomed to discuss any issues on an informal basis at the conclusion of the AGMs.

 

STATEMENT OF DIRECTORS' RESPONSIBILITIES

 

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Directors' Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations.

 

The Directors are responsible for preparing financial statements for each financial year which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Group and the Company and of the profit or loss for that year. 

 

In preparing those financial statements, the Directors are required to:

 

select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;

make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent;

state whether applicable accounting standards have been followed, subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements;

prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Group and the Company will continue in business.

 

The Directors are responsible for keeping proper accounting records that disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company.  They have general responsibility for taking such steps as are reasonably available to them to safeguard the assets of the Group and the Company to prevent and detect fraud and other irregularities.   

 

 

 

 

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT

TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF

UNIVISION ENGINEERING LIMITED

(Incorporated in Hong Kong with limited liability)

 

 

We have audited the financial statements of UniVision Engineering Limited (the "Company") and its subsidiary (collectively referred to as the "Group") set out on pages 21 to 72, which comprise the Consolidated and the Company Statement of Financial Position as at 31 March 2016, and the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, the Consolidated and the Company Statement of Changes in Equity and the Consolidated and the Company Statement of Cash Flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.

 

This report is made solely to the Company's shareholders, as a body, in compliance with the Alternative Investment Market Rules ("AIM Rules") for companies as published by the London Stock Exchange plc. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company's shareholders 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 shareholders as a body for this report or for the opinions we have formed.

 

Directors' responsibility for the financial statements

 

The Directors are responsible for the preparation of these financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards 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.

 

Auditor's responsibility

 

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

 

Scope of the audit of the financial statements

 

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity's preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the Directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

 

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

3.          Special capital reserve "B"

 

By a special resolution passed on 30 July 2004 and Order of the High Court dated 20 November 2004, the authorised and issued capital of the Company was reduced from HK$159,245,000 divided into 31,849 ordinary shares of HK$5,000 each to HK$16,405,000 divided into 3,281 ordinary shares of HK$5,000 each. The reduction of capital was effected by cancellation of 28,568 ordinary shares of HK$5,000 each in the issued and paid up share capital of the Company.

1.      GENERAL

 

UniVision Engineering Limited ("the Company") is incorporated in Hong Kong with limited liability and its shares are listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM").  The address of the registered office is Unit 1A, 2/F., Sunbeam Centre, 27 Shing Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

 

The financial statements are presented in Sterling Pound ("£"), which is the presentation currency of the Company.

 

The Company and its subsidiary (hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Group") are mainly engaged in the supply, design, installation and maintenance of closed circuit television and surveillance systems and the sale of security system related products. The principal activities of its subsidiary are set out in note 18 to the financial statements.

 

 

2.      BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRSs") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB").

 

The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention basis, as modified by the revaluation of financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of policies and reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making the judgements about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimate is 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.

 

Judgements made by management in the application of IFRSs that have significant effect on the financial statements and major sources of estimation uncertainty are discussed in note 5 in the financial statements.

 

 

 

3.      APPLICATION OF NEW AND REVISED INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING STANDARDS ("IFRSs")

 

(a)   New and revised  IFRSs that have been issued and effective

 

The following standards have been adopted by the Group and the Company for the first time for the year ended 31 March 2016:

 

-      Amendments to IAS 19 "Employee benefits: Defined benefit plans: Employee contribution" introduce a relief to reduce the complexity of accounting for certain contributions from employees or third parties under defined benefit plans.  When the contributions are eligible for the practical expedient provided by the amendments, a company is allowed to recognise the contributions as a reduction of the service cost in the period in which the related service is rendered, instead of including them in calculating the defined benefit obligation. The amendments do not have an impact on these financial statements.

 

-      Annual improvements to IFRSs 2010-2012 cycle and 2011-2013 cycle contain amendments to nine standards with consequential amendments to other standards.  Among them, IAS 24 "Related party disclosures" has been amended to expand the definition of a "related party" to include a management entity that provides key management personnel services to the reporting entity, and to require the disclosure of the amounts incurred for obtaining the key management personnel services provided by the management entity.

 

(b)   New and revised IFRSs that have been issued but are not yet effective

 

The following new and revised IFRSs, potentially relevant to the Group's and the Company's operations, have been issued and are mandatory for adoption by the Group and the Company for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2016 or later periods. However, the Group and the Company have not early adopted them.

 

   IFRS 9 (2014) "Financial instruments"

   IFRS 15 "Revenue from contracts with customers"

   Amendments to IFRS 11 "Accounting for acquisitions of interests in joint operations"

   Amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 38 "Clarification of acceptable methods of depreciation and amortisation"

   Amendments to IFRS 10 and IAS 28 "Sale or contribution of assets between an investor and its associate or joint venture"

   Annual improvements to IFRSs 2012-2014 cycle

 

The Group and the Company have not applied any new or revised IFRSs that are not yet effective for the accounting year ended 31 March 2016.

 

 

 

 

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

 

4.1     Basis of consolidation

 

(a)     Subsidiaries

 

Subsidiaries are all entities (including structured entities) over which the Group has control. The Group controls an entity when the Group is exposed to, or has rights to, variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the entity.   Subsidiaries are consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Group. They are deconsolidated from the date that control ceases. Inter-company transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions between group companies are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated. Accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

 

The Group uses the acquisition method of accounting to account for business combinations. The consideration transferred for the acquisition of a subsidiary is the fair values of the assets transferred, the liabilities incurred and the equity interests issued by the Group. The consideration transferred includes the fair value of any asset or liability resulting from a contingent consideration arrangement. Acquisition related costs are expensed as incurred. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date. On an acquisition-by-acquisition basis, the Group recognises any non-controlling interest in the acquiree either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest's proportionate share of the acquiree's net assets.

 

Changes in the Group's interests in a subsidiary that do not result in a loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions, whereby adjustments are made to the amounts of controlling and non-controlling interests within consolidated equity to reflect the change in relative interests, but no adjustments are made to goodwill and no gain or loss is recognised.

 

(b)     Separate financial statements

 

In the individual Company's statement of financial position, interests in subsidiaries are accounted for at cost less impairment loss. Cost includes direct attributable costs of investment. The results of subsidiaries are accounted for by the Company on the basis of dividend received and receivable.

 

Impairment testing of the interests in subsidiaries is required upon receiving a dividend from these investments if the dividend exceeds the total comprehensive income of the subsidiary for the period the dividend is declared or, if the carrying amount of investment in the separate financial statements exceeds the carrying amount in the consolidated financial statements, of the investee's net assets including goodwill.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.1     Basis of consolidation (continued)

 

(c)     Non-controlling interests

 

Non-controlling interests represent the equity in a subsidiary not attributable directly or indirectly to the Company, and in respect of which the Group has not agreed any additional terms with the holders of those interests which would result in the Group as a whole having a contractual obligation in respect of those interests that meets the definition of a financial liability. For each business combination, the Group can elect to measure any non-controlling interests either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest's proportionate share of the subsidiary's net identifiable assets.

 

Non-controlling interests are presented in the consolidated statement of financial position within equity, separately from equity attributable to the equity shareholders of the Company. Non-controlling interests in the results of the Group are presented on the face of the consolidated statement of comprehensive income as an allocation of the total profit or loss and total comprehensive income for the year between non-controlling interests and the equity shareholders of the Company.

 

4.2     Segment reporting

 

An operating segment is a component of the Group that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incurs expenses, including revenues and expenses that relate to transactions with other components of the Group. Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The Group's Executive Director, Mr. Stephen Sin Mo KOO is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments.

 

4.3     Foreign currency

 

(a)     Functional and presentation currency

 

Items included in the financial statements of each of the Group's entities are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates ("the functional currency"). The Consolidated and Company financial statements are presented in Sterling Pound ("£"), which is the Group's presentation currency. As the Company is listed on AIM, the directors consider that this presentation is more useful for its current and potential investors.

 

The functional currency of the Group's entities is summarised as follows:

 

1.

UniVision Engineering Limited

 

Hong Kong Dollars

("HK$")

2.

T-Com Technology Co. Limited

 

New Taiwan Dollars

("NTD")

 

 

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.3     Foreign currency (continued)

 

(b)     Transactions and balances

 

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions or valuation where items are remeasured.  Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income, except when deferred in other comprehensive income as qualifying cash flow hedges and qualifying net investment hedges. 

 

Foreign exchange gains and losses that relate to borrowings and cash and bank balances are presented in the statement of comprehensive income within "finance income or cost". All other foreign exchange gains and losses are presented in the statement of comprehensive income within "administrative expense" or "other income".

 

Changes in the fair value of monetary securities denominated in foreign currency classified as available for sale are analysed between translation differences resulting from changes in the amortised cost of the security and other changes in the carrying amount of the security. Translation differences in respect of changes in amortised cost are recognised in profit or loss, and other changes in carrying amount are recognised in other comprehensive income.

 

Translation differences on non-monetary financial assets and liabilities such as equities held at fair value through profit or loss are recognised in profit or loss as part of the fair value gain or loss. Translation differences on non-monetary financial assets, such as equities classified as available for sale, are included in other comprehensive income.

 

(c)     Group companies

 

The results and financial position of all the Group's entities (none of which has the currency of a hyper-inflationary economy) that have a functional currency different from the presentation currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:

 

(i)      assets and liabilities for each statement of financial position presented are translated at the closing rate at the end of the reporting period;

 

(ii)      income and expenses for each statement of comprehensive income are translated at average exchange rates (unless this average is not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates prevailing on the transaction dates, in which case income and expenses are translated at the rate on the dates of the transactions); and

 

(iii)     all resulting exchange differences are recognised in other comprehensive income.

 

On consolidation, exchange differences arising from the translation of the net investment in foreign operations, and of loan and borrowings and other currency instruments designated as hedges of such investments, are taken to other comprehensive income. When a foreign operation is partially disposed of or sold, exchange differences that were recorded in equity are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income as part of the gain or loss on sale. Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of a foreign entity are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the closing rate.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.4     Plant and equipment

 

Plant and equipment is initially recognised at cost and subsequently carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment loss. The cost of an asset comprises its purchase price and any directly attributable costs of bringing the asset to working condition for its intended use.

 

On disposal of an item of plant and equipment, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and its carrying amount is taken to profit or loss.

 

Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method to allocate their depreciable amounts over the estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Furniture and fixtures

3 - 5 years

Computer equipment

2 - 5 years

Motor vehicles

3 years

Research assets

3 - 5 years

 

Fully depreciated plant and equipment is retained in the financial statements until the items are no longer in use and no further charge for depreciation is made in respect of these assets.

 

The residual values, useful life and depreciation method are reviewed at the end of each reporting period to ensure that the amount, method and period of depreciation are consistent with previous estimates and the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the items of plant and equipment. The effects of any revision are recognised in profit or loss when the changes arise.

 

Subsequent expenditure relating to plant and equipment that has already been recognised is added to the carrying amount of the asset only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Group and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. All other repair and maintenance expenses are recognised in profit or loss when incurred.

 

4.5     Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of:

 

(a)     the aggregate of the fair value of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the fair value of the Group's previously held equity interest in the acquiree; over

 

(b)     the net fair value of the acquiree's identifiable assets and liabilities measured as at the acquisition date.

 

When (b) is greater than (a), then this excess is recognised immediately in profit or loss as a gain on a bargain purchase.

 

Goodwill is stated at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Goodwill arising on a business combination is allocated to each cash-generating unit, or groups of cash generating units, that is expected to benefit from the synergies of the combination and is tested annually for impairment. On disposal of a cash generating unit during the year, any attributable amount of purchased goodwill is included in the calculation of the profit or loss on disposal.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.6     Impairment of assets

 

The carrying amounts of non-current assets, such as plant and equipment, are reviewed at the end of each reporting period to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount is estimated. In addition, for goodwill, the recoverable amount is estimated annually whether or not there is any indication of impairment.

 

Calculation of recoverable amount

 

The recoverable amount of an asset is the greater of its fair value less costs of disposal and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. Where an asset does not generate cash inflows largely independent of those from other assets, the recoverable amount is determined for the smallest group of assets that generates cash inflows independently (i.e. a cash-generating unit).

 

Recognition of impairment losses

 

An impairment loss is recognised in profit or loss if the carrying amount of an asset, or the cash-generating unit to which it belongs, exceeds the recoverable amount. Impairment losses recognised in respect of cash-generating units are allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of any goodwill allocated to the cash-generating unit (or group of units) and then, to reduce the carrying amount of the other assets in the unit (or group of units) on a pro rata basis, except that the carrying value of an asset will not be reduced below its individual fair value less costs of disposal (if measurable), or value in use (if determinable).

 

Reversals of impairment losses

 

In respect of assets other than goodwill, an impairment loss is reversed if there has been a favourable change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount. An impairment loss in respect of goodwill is not reversed (including those provided during the interim financial reporting).

 

A reversal of an impairment loss is limited to the asset's carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognised in prior years. Reversals of impairment losses are credited to profit or loss in the year in which the reversals are recognised.

 

4.7     Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined using the weighted average method and comprises design costs, raw materials, direct labour, other direct costs and other costs incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale.

 

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.8     Financial instruments

 

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

 

Financial assets and financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value. Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial assets and financial liabilities are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition.

 

4.8.1  Financial assets

 

Loans and receivables

 

Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables (including trade and other receivables and bank balances and cash) are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment (see accounting policy on impairment of loans and receivables below).

 

Interest income is recognised by applying the effective interest rate, except for short-term receivables where the recognition of interest would be immaterial.

 

 

Type of item

 

Nature and terms of item

 

1.

Bills receivable

 

Certain customers pay accounts receivable with bills receivable from Taiwan banks with maturities less than twelve months. These are also referred to as "bankers" acceptances, which are unsecured, interest-free and to be matured in twelve months.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.

Loans

 

Unsecured temporary advances to the subsidiary, which are interest-free and eliminated upon consolidation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.

Other receivables

 

They include:

 

 

 

 

a. Retention receivable under warranty provision among certain construction contracts for a period of twelve months

 

 

 

 

b. Accrued income from maintenance contracts, which are billed or collected within twelve months.

 

 

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.8     Financial instruments (continued)

 

4.8.1  Financial assets (continued)

 

Impairment of loans and receivables

 

Loans and receivables are assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of each reporting period.  Loans and receivables are considered to be impaired when there is objective evidence that, as a result of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the loans and receivables, the estimated future cash flows of loans and receivables have been affected.

 

Objective evidence of impairment could include:

 

•      significant financial difficulty of the issuer or counterparty; or

 

•      breach of contract, such as default or delinquency in interest and principal payments; or

 

•      it becoming probable that the borrower will enter bankruptcy or financial re-organisation.  

 

For certain categories of loans and receivables, such as trade receivables, assets that are assessed not to be impaired individually are, in addition, assessed for impairment on a collective basis. Objective evidence of impairment for a portfolio of receivables could include the Group's past experience of collecting payments, an increase in the number of delayed payments in the portfolio past the average credit period and observable changes in national or local economic conditions that correlate with default on receivables.

 

The amount of the impairment loss recognised is the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the loans and receivables' original effective interest rate.

 

The carrying amount of loans and receivables is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all loans and receivables with the exception of trade receivables, where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance account. Changes in the carrying amount of the allowance account are recognised in profit or loss. When a trade receivable is considered uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited to profit or loss.

 

If, in a subsequent period, the amount of impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognised, the previously recognised impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss to the extent that, the carrying amount of the loan and receivable at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortised cost would have been had the impairment not been recognised.

 

 

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.8     Financial instruments (continued)

 

4.8.2  Financial liabilities and equity instruments

 

Debt and equity instruments issued by a group entity are classified as either financial liabilities or as equity in accordance with the substance of the contractual arrangements and the definitions of a financial liability and an equity instrument.

 

Equity instrument

 

An equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of an entity after deducting all of its liabilities. Equity instruments issued by the Group are recognised at the proceeds received, net of direct issue costs.

 

Financial liabilities

 

Financial liabilities (including trade and other payables and loan and borrowings) are subsequently measured at amortised cost, using the effective interest method.

 

Effective interest method

 

The effective interest method is a method of calculating the amortised cost of a financial liability and of allocating interest expense over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash payments (including all fees paid or received that form an integral part of the effective interest rate, transaction costs and other premiums or discounts) through the expected life of the financial liability or, where appropriate, a shorter period, to the net carrying amount on initial recognition. Interest expense is recognised on an effective interest basis.

 

Derecognition

 

The Group derecognises a financial asset only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset to another entity.

 

On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety, the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the sum of the consideration received and receivable and the cumulative gain or loss that had been recognised in other comprehensive income and accumulated in equity is recognised in profit or loss.

 

The Group derecognises financial liabilities when, and only when, the Group's obligations are discharged, cancelled or expire. The difference between the carrying amount of the financial liability derecognised and the consideration paid and payable is recognised in profit or loss.

 

4.8.3  Offsetting financial instruments

 

Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount reported in the statement of financial position when there is a legally enforceable right to offset the recognised amounts and there is an intention to settle on a net basis or realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.9     Trade and other receivables

 

Trade and other receivables are initially recognised at fair value and thereafter stated at amortised cost less allowance for impairment of bad and doubtful debts, except where the receivables are interest-free loans made to related parties without any fixed repayment terms or the effect of discounting would be immaterial. In such cases, the receivables are stated at cost less allowance for impairment of bad and doubtful debts.

 

4.10   Bank deposits

 

They represent bank deposits with maturities greater than three months, which are restricted as bank deposits held as collateral for performance bonds issued by the bank to customers.

 

4.11   Cash and cash equivalents

 

In the statement of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents includes cash in hand, deposits held at call with banks and other short-term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.

 

4.12   Trade and other payables

 

Trade and other payables are initially recognised at fair value and subsequently stated at amortised cost unless the effect of discounting would be immaterial, in which case they are stated at cost.

 

4.13   Interest-bearing borrowings

 

Interest-bearing borrowings are initially recognised at fair value less transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, the interest-bearing borrowings are stated at amortised cost with any difference between the amount initially recognised and redemption value being recognised in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income over the period of the borrowings together with any interest and fees payable using the effective interest method.

 

4.14   Share capital

 

Ordinary shares are classified as equity.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.15   Revenue recognition

 

Revenue comprises the fair value of the consideration received or receivable for the sale of goods and rendering of services in the ordinary course of the Group's activities. Revenue is shown net of business tax, value-added tax, rebates and discounts, and after eliminating sales within the Group.

 

The Group recognises revenue when the amount of revenue and related cost can be reliably measured, it is probable that future economic will flow to the entity and when specific criteria have been met for each of the Group's activities as described below. The amount of revenue is not considered to be reliably measurable until all contingencies relating to the sale have been resolved. The Group bases its estimates on historical results, taking into consideration the type of customer, the type of transaction and the specifics of each arrangement.

 

(i)      Construction contracts

 

Revenue from construction contracts is recognised when the outcome of a construction contract can be estimated reliably:

 

§  revenue from a fixed price contract is recognised using the percentage of completion method, measured by reference to the percentage of contract costs incurred to date to estimated total contract costs for the contract; and

 

§  revenue from a cost plus contract is recognised by reference to the recoverable costs incurred during the period plus an appropriate proportion of the total fee, measured by reference to the proportion that costs incurred to date bear to the estimated total costs of the contract.

 

When the outcome of a construction contract cannot be estimated reliably, revenue is recognised only to the extent of contract costs incurred that it is probable will be recoverable.

 

(ii)      Maintenance contracts

 

Revenue from maintenance contracts is recognised on a straight line basis over the term of the maintenance contract.

 

(iii)     Product sales

 

Revenue from product sales is recognised on the transfer of risks and rewards of ownership, which generally coincides with the delivery of goods to customers and the passing of title to customers.

 

(iv)     Interest income

 

Interest income is recognised as it accrues using the effective interest method.

 

(v)     Dividend income

 

Dividend income from investments is recognised when the shareholder's right to receive payment has been established (provided that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the amount of income can be measured reliably).

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.16   Construction contracts

 

When the outcome of a construction contract can be estimated reliably, contract costs are recognised as an expense by reference to the stage of completion of the contract at the end of the reporting period. When it is probable that total contract costs will exceed total contract revenue, the expected loss is recognised as an expense immediately. When the outcome of a construction contract cannot be estimated reliably, contract costs are recognised as an expense in the period in which they are incurred.

 

Contracts in progress at the end of the reporting period are recorded in the statement of financial position at the net amount of costs incurred plus recognised profit less recognised losses and progress billings, and are presented under the caption of "Trade and other receivables" or "Trade and other payables" in the statement of financial position as the "Amounts due from customers for contracts-in-progress" (as an asset) or the "Amounts due to customers for contracts-in-progress" (as a liability), as applicable. Progress billings not yet paid by the customer are included in the statement of financial position. Amounts received before the related work is performed are included in the statement of financial position, as a liability, as "Advances received".

 

4.17   Borrowing costs

 

Borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of qualifying assets, which are assets that necessarily take a substantial period of time to get ready for their intended use or sale are added to the cost of those assets until such time as the assets are substantially ready for their intended use or sale.  Investment income earned on the temporary investment of specific borrowings pending their expenditure on qualifying assets is deducted from the borrowing costs eligible for capitalisation.

 

All other borrowing costs are recognised in profit or loss in the period in which they are incurred.

 

4.18   Leases

 

Leases are classified as finance leases whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases.

 

Operating lease payments are recognised as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.  In the event that lease incentives are received to enter into operating leases, such incentives are recognised as a liability. The aggregate benefit of incentives is recognised as a reduction of rental expense on a straight-line basis.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.19   Employee benefit

 

These comprise short term employee benefits and contributions to defined contribution retirement plans.

 

Short-term employee benefits, including salaries, annual bonuses, paid annual leave, leave passage, contributions to defined contribution retirement plans and the cost of non-monetary benefits are accrued in the year in which the associated services are rendered by employees of the Group. Where payment or settlement is deferred and the effect would be material, these amounts are stated at their present values.

 

Contributions to the defined contribution scheme are charged to profit or loss when incurred.

 

4.20   Income tax

 

Income tax expense for the year comprises current and deferred tax. Tax is recognised in the statement of comprehensive income, except to the extent that it relates to items recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity. In this case, the tax is also recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity, respectively.

 

The current income tax charge is calculated on the basis of the tax laws enacted or substantively enacted at the end of the reporting period in the countries where the Company and its subsidiaries operate and generate taxable income. Management periodically evaluates positions taken in tax returns with respect to situations in which applicable tax regulation is subject to interpretation. It establishes provisions where appropriate on the basis of amounts expected to be paid to the tax authorities.

 

Deferred income tax is recognised, using the liability method, on temporary differences arising between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the consolidated financial statements. However, deferred tax liabilities are not recognised if they arise from the initial recognition of goodwill; deferred income tax is not accounted for if it arises from initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that at the time of the transaction affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss. Deferred income tax is determined using tax rates (and laws) that have been enacted or substantially enacted by the end of the reporting period and are expected to apply when the related deferred income tax asset is realised or the deferred income tax liability is settled.

 

Deferred income tax assets are recognised only to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profit will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilised.  

 

Deferred income tax is provided on temporary differences arising on investments in subsidiaries and associates, except for deferred income tax liability where the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference is controlled by the Group and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future.

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets against current tax liabilities and when the deferred income taxes assets and liabilities relate to income taxes levied by the same taxation authority on either the same taxable entity or different taxable entities where there is an intention to settle the balances on a net basis.

 

4.      SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

4.21   Provisions and contingent liabilities

 

Provisions are recognised for other liabilities of uncertain timing or amount when the Group or the Company has a legal or constructive obligation arising as a result of a past event, it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation and a reliable estimate can be made. Where the time value of money is material, provisions are stated at the present value of the expenditure expected to settle the obligation.

 

4.22   Dividend distributions

 

Dividend distributions to the Company's shareholders are recognised as liabilities in the Group's and the Company's financial statements in the period in which the dividends are approved by the Company's shareholders or directors, where appropriate.

 

4.23   Events after the reporting period

 

Events after the reporting period that provide additional information about the Group's and the Company's position at the end of the reporting period or those that indicate the going concern assumption is not appropriate are adjusting events and are reflected in the financial statements. Events after the reporting period that are not adjusting events are disclosed in the notes to the financial statements when material.

 

 

5.      CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS

 

Critical judgements in applying accounting policies

 

In the process of applying the accounting policies, Management has made the following judgements that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements (apart from those involving estimations, which are dealt with below).

 

(i)       Estimation of contract costs

 

Estimated costs to complete contracts are judged by the Directors through the application of their experience and knowledge of the industry in which the Group operates. However, contract performance can be difficult to predict accurately.  The Directors believe that contract budgets do not deviate materially from actual costs incurred due to a strong cost control system with regular reviews of budgets which highlight any incidences that could affect estimated costs to completion.

 

The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of the reporting periods, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year.

 

Key sources of estimation uncertainty

 

The key assumptions concerning the future, and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of the reporting period, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year, are discussed below.

 

(i)       Impairment of assets

 

The Group has to exercise judgement in determining whether an asset is impaired or the event previously causing the asset impairment no longer exists, particularly in assessing: (1) whether an event has occurred that may affect the asset value or such event affecting the asset value has not been in existence; (2)  whether the carrying value of an asset can be supported by the net present value of future cash flows which are estimated based upon the continued use of the asset or derecognition; and (3) the appropriate key assumptions to be applied in preparing cash flow projections including whether these cash flow projections are discounted using an appropriate rate. Changing the assumptions selected by management to determine the level of impairment, including the discount rates or the growth rate assumptions in the cash flow projections, could materially affect the net present value used in the impairment test.

 

 

5.      CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS (CONTINUED)

 

Key sources of estimation uncertainty (continued)

 

(ii)      Impairment of trade and other receivables

 

The estimation of impairment of trade and other receivables includes an assessment of recoverability of individual account balances and a review of ageing analysis of trade and other receivables by the Directors.  The Directors will also review the credit history of customers in assessing the recoverability of trade and other receivables.  When any indication comes to their attention that a trade and other receivable might not be recovered in full, impairment will be made and recognised as an expense in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.  As at 31 March 2016, the total carrying amount of the Group's trade and other receivables was £5,525,191 (2015: £7,296,438) and the total carrying amount of the Company's trade and other receivables was £5,525,191 (2015: £4,812,753).

 

(iii)     Income taxes

 

The Group is subject to income tax in different jurisdiction in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the PRC.  Significant estimates are required in determining the provision for income taxes. There are many transactions and calculations for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain during the ordinary course of business. Where the final tax outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will impact the income tax and deferred tax provisions in the period in which such determination is made.

 

As at 31 March 2016, the Group has unused tax losses of £4,657,046 (2015: £4,746,391) available for offset against future profits. A deferred tax asset of £768,413 (2015: £783,154) has not been recognised in respect of the unused tax losses. In cases where there are future profits generated to utilise the tax losses, a material deferred tax asset may arise, which would be recognised in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the period in which such future profits are recorded.

(b)     Financial risk management objectives and policies

 

The Group's major financial instruments include loan and borrowings, trade and other receivables and trade and other payables. Details of these financial instruments are disclosed in the respective notes. The risks associated with these financial instruments include currency risk, interest rate risk, credit risk and liquidity risk.  The policies on how these risks are mitigated are set out below.  Management manages and monitors these exposures to ensure appropriate measures are implemented in a timely and effective manner.

 

(i)      Market risk

 

(1)   Currency risk

 

Certain entities in the Group have foreign currency transactions and have foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities, which expose the Group to foreign currency risk. The Company has foreign currency transactions, which expose the Company to foreign currency risk.

 

The carrying amounts of the Group's and the Company's foreign currency denominated monetary assets and monetary liabilities, mainly represented by trade and other receivables, cash and bank balances, trade and other payables and loan and borrowings, at the end of the reporting period are as follows:

Sensitivity analysis

 

The following table details the Group's sensitivity to a 5% increase and decrease in Sterling against the relevant foreign currencies and all other variables were held constant.  5% (2015: 5%) is the sensitivity rate used when reporting foreign currency risk internally to key management personnel and represents management's assessment of the reasonably possible change in foreign exchange rates. The sensitivity analysis includes only outstanding foreign currencies denominated monetary items and adjusts their translation at the end of the reporting period for a 5% (2015: 5%) change in foreign currency rates.  A positive/(negative) number indicates a decrease/(increase) in post-tax profit/(loss) for the year when Sterling strengthens 5% (2015: 5%) against the relevant foreign currencies.  For a 5% (2015: 5%) weakening of Sterling against the relevant currency, there would be an equal but opposite impact on the post-tax profit/(loss) for the year.

(2)   Interest rate risk

 

The Group and the Company is exposed to fair value interest rate risk in relation to fixed rate bank deposits and borrowings at fixed rates. The Group and the Company is exposed to cash flow interest rate risk due to fluctuation of the prevailing market interest rate on certain bank borrowings which carry at prevailing market interest rates as shown in note 25.  The Group currently does not have an interest rate hedging policy.  However, Management monitors interest rate exposure and will consider hedging significant interest rate exposure should the need arises.

 

The Group's and the Company's exposures to interest rates on financial liabilities are detailed in the liquidity risk management section of this note.

(b)     Financial risk management objectives and policies (continued)

 

(i)      Market risk (continued)

 

(2)   Interest rate risk (continued)

 

Sensitivity analysis

 

The sensitivity analysis below has been determined based on the change in interest rates and the exposure to interest rates for the non-derivative financial liabilities at the end of the reporting period and on the assumption that the amount outstanding at the end of the reporting period was outstanding for the whole year and held constant throughout the financial year.  The 25 basis points increase or decrease represents Management's assessment of a reasonably possible change in interest rates over the period until the next fiscal year.  The analysis is performed on the same basis for 2015.

 

For the year ended 31 March 2016, if interest rates had been 25 basis points higher/lower, with all other variables held constant, the Group's post-tax profit for the year would increase/decrease by approximately £0 (2015: £2,117).

 

(ii)     Credit risk

 

At 31 March 2016, the Group's and the Company's maximum exposure to credit risk in the event of the counterparties' failure to perform their obligations in relation to each class of recognised financial assets is the carrying amount of those assets as stated in the consolidated statement of financial position.

 

The Group's credit risk is primarily attributable to its trade and other receivables. In order to minimise the credit risk, the Management of the Group has a credit policy in place and the exposures to these credit risks are monitored on an ongoing basis.  Credit evaluations of its customers' financial position and condition are performed on each and every major customer periodically.  These evaluations focus on the customer's past history of making payments when due and current ability to pay, and take into account information specific to the customer as well as pertaining to the economic environment in which the customer operates.  Debts are usually due within 90 days from the date of billing.  The Group's exposure to credit risk is influenced mainly by the individual characteristics of each customer.  The default risk of the industry and country in which customers operate also has an influence on credit risk. At the end of the reporting period, the Group had no significant concentrations of credit risk where individual trade and other receivables balance exceed 10% of the total trade and other receivables at the end of the reporting period.

 

The credit risk on liquid funds is limited because the counterparties are banks with high credit ratings assigned by international credit rating agencies. Also, the Group has no significant concentration of credit risk, with exposure spread over a number of counterparties and customers.

 

Further quantitative disclosures in respect of the Group's and the Company's exposure to credit risk arising from trade and other receivables are set out in note 21.

(b)     Financial risk management objectives and policies (continued)

 

(iii)    Liquidity risk

 

In managing the liquidity risk, the Group's policy is to regularly monitor and maintain an adequate level of cash and cash equivalents determined by Management to finance the Group's operations. Management also needs to ensure the continuity of funding for both the short and long terms, and to mitigate the effects of cash flow fluctuation. At 31 March 2016, the Group had aggregate banking facilities of £438,574 (2015: £2,412,189), of which £438,574 were unused (2015: £1,290,137).

 

The following table details the contractual maturities of the Group's and the Company's financial liabilities at the end of the reporting period, which is based on the undiscounted cash flows and the earliest date on which the Group can be required to pay. The table includes both interest and principal cash flows.

(c)     Fair value

 

The fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities are determined in accordance with generally accepted pricing models based on discounted cash flow analysis. Balance with a subsidiary is unsecured, interest free and have no fixed repayment terms.

 

The Directors of the Company consider that the carrying amounts of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded at amortised cost in the financial statements approximate to their fair values at the end of the reporting period.

 

(d)     Capital risk management

 

The Group's primary objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Group's ability to continue as a going concern, so that it can continue to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital.

 

The Group actively and regularly reviews and manages its capital structure to maintain a balance between the higher shareholder returns that might be possible with a higher level of borrowings and the advantages and security afforded by a sound capital position, and makes adjustments to the capital structure in light of changes in economic conditions.

 

The Group monitors its capital structure on the basis of a net debt-to-adjusted capital ratio.  For this purpose the Group defines net debt as total debt (which includes bank borrowings and other financial liabilities) less bank deposits and cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted capital comprises all components of equity less unaccrued proposed dividends.

 

 

6.      FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (CONTINUED)

 

(d)     Capital risk management (continued)

 

During 2016, the Group's strategy, which was unchanged from 2015, was to maintain the net debt-to-adjusted capital ratio as low as feasible.  In order to maintain or adjust the ratio, the Group may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders, return capital to shareholders, issue new shares or sell assets to reduce debt. 

 

Neither the Company nor its subsidiary is subject to externally imposed capital requirements.

 

The net debt-to-adjusted capital ratios of the Group and the Company at the end of the reporting period were as follows:

Receivables that were past due but not impaired relate to a number of independent customers that have a good track record with the Group. Based on past experience, management believes that no impairment allowance is necessary in respect of these balances as there has not been a significant change in credit quality and the balances are still considered fully recoverable. The Company does not hold any collateral over these balances.
