Chairman's Statement

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it gives me great pleasure to present the financial statements of Senterra Energy plc (the "Company" or "Senterra") for the period ended 31 December 2015.

 

On 10 November 2015, Senterra's shares were admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority ("UKLA") by way of a standard listing under Chapter 14 of the UKLA's Listing Rules and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market ("Admission").

 

On Admission, the Company issued 25,000,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 5 pence per share, raising £1.25 million before expenses.

 

Senterra was formed to take control of or invest in businesses within the oil and gas sector favouring companies with existing production and revenues where there would be scope for growth and attractive returns for shareholders.

Subsequent to the period end, following our announcement of 22 February 2016, the Company continued to both conduct due diligence upon acquisition targets within the oil and gas sector and follow up on expressions of interest by other parties with opportunities outside that of the energy sector who had expressed interest in working with Senterra to facilitate a public listing.

On 23 May 2016, we were therefore pleased to announce that the Company had signed a non-binding letter of intent to acquire a SIM-card technology business based in Singapore and dealings in the Company's shares were, accordingly, suspended pending the publication of a prospectus in relation to this transaction. Our announcement referred to the possibility of a short-term loan being provided by the Company to this business. However, to date, no loan has been made by the Company.

As part of the work on this transaction, it was decided to change the Company's accounting date to 31 December and accordingly the results for the period from 5 June 2015 to 31 December 2015, as previously announced as unaudited interims, have now been audited and are herein presented as audited financial statements.

Due to the complexities of the business being acquired, the work on preparing a prospectus has taken longer than originally anticipated and whilst this is being finalised, the Board would like to emphasise that it is managing its cash position in a prudent manner.

We look forward to updating shareholders on progress on this transaction shortly.

Strategic Report

 

Strategy, objectives and business model

 

The Company has been formed to undertake a single acquisition of a target company or business in the oil and gas sector. There is no specific expected target value for an acquisition, although it is likely that the Company will be targeting an acquisition in the range of £1m to £5m.

 

Following Admission, the Company continued to make progress in the identification and review of acquisition targets in the oil and gas sector. However, as announced in February 2016, the Company had been approached by a number of parties with opportunities outside that of the energy sector who had expressed interest in working with Senterra to facilitate a public listing.  The Directors believed that there were some potentially attractive businesses and technologies amongst these proposals and accordingly on 29 July 2016 obtained Shareholders' approval to evaluate opportunities outside of the oil and gas sector and to incur costs associated with such pursuit.

 

In the meantime, on 23 May 2016, the Company announced that it had signed a non-binding letter of intent to acquire a SIM-card technology business based in Singapore and dealings in the Company's shares were accordingly suspended pending the publication of a prospectus in relation to this transaction, work on which is ongoing.

 

Following completion of an acquisition, the objective of the Company will be to operate the acquired business and implement an operating strategy with a view to generating value for its shareholders through operational improvements as well as potentially through additional complementary acquisitions following the acquisition. Following an acquisition, the Company intends to seek re-admission of the enlarged group to listing on the Official List and trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities.

 

Fair review of the business

 

After successfully listing on the London Stock Exchange's main market on 10 November 2015, the share capital of the Company increased to 27 million shares with the issue of 25 million shares at 5p each raising gross proceeds of £1,250,000.

 

The Company's cash resources are sufficient for general corporate purposes and pre-acquisition activities such as the Company's on-going costs and expenses including Directors' fees and salaries, due diligence costs and other costs of sourcing, reviewing and pursuing acquisitions.

 

The Company continues to keep administrative costs to a minimum so that the majority of funds can be dedicated to the review of and potentially investment in, suitable projects.

 

Principal risks and uncertainties

 

The Directors have identified the following as the key risks facing the business:

 

-  The Oil and Gas sector - exploration, development and production

 

The estimating of reserves and resources is a subjective process and there is significant uncertainty in any reserve or resource estimate.  In addition, the exploration for and production of oil and other natural resources is speculative and involves a high degree of risk, in particular a company's operations may be disrupted by a variety of tasks and hazards which are beyond its control such as environmental regulation, governmental regulations or delays, increase in costs and the availability of equipment or services, and the volatility of oil and gas prices.

 

-The Company's relationships with the Directors

 

The Company is dependent on the Directors to identify potential acquisition opportunities and to execute an acquisition, and the loss of the services of the Directors could materially affect it.

 

-Business Strategy

 

The Company is an entity with no operating history. The Company may be unable to complete an acquisition or to fund the operations of a target business if it does not obtain additional funding.

 

This report was approved by the Board of Directors on 27 September 2016 and signed on its behalf by:

 

 

Jeremy King

Director

Key events

 

On 10 November 2015, the Company was successfully admitted to Standard Listing on the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities.

 

As noted in the Strategic Report, on 23 May 2016, the Company announced that it had signed a non-binding letter of intent to acquire a SIM-card technology business based in Singapore and dealings in the Company's shares were, accordingly, suspended pending the publication of a prospectus in relation to this transaction, work on which is ongoing.

 

Capital structure

 

Details of the issued share capital, together with details of the movements in the Company's issued share capital during the period, are shown in note 9 to the financial statements. The Company has one class of ordinary shares which carry no right to fixed income. Each ordinary share carries the right to one vote at general meetings of the Company. The Deferred Shares carry an entitlement to a non-cumulative annual dividend at a fixed rate of 0.1% of their nominal value, with no further right to participate in the profits or assets of the Company, and carry no voting rights. The Deferred Shares may all be redeemed by the Company for an aggregate redemption payment of £1.

 

There are no specific restrictions on the size of a holding nor on the transfer of shares, which are both governed by the general provisions of the Articles of Association and prevailing legislation. The Directors are not aware of any agreements between holders of the Company's shares that may result in restrictions on the transfer of securities or on voting rights.

 

No person has any special rights of control over the company's share capital and all issued shares are fully paid.

 

With regard to the appointment and replacement of directors, the company is governed by its Articles of Association, the Companies Act 2006 and related legislation. The Articles themselves may be amended by special resolution of the shareholders.

Capital and returns management

 

The Directors believe that, following an acquisition, further equity capital raisings may be required by the Company for working capital purposes as the Company pursues its objectives. The amount of any such additional equity to be raised, which could be substantial, will depend on the nature of the acquisition opportunities which arise and the form of consideration the Company uses to make the acquisition and cannot be determined at this time.

 

The Company expects that any returns for Shareholders would derive primarily from capital appreciation of the Ordinary Shares and any dividends paid pursuant to the Company's dividend policy.

 

Dividend policy

 

The Company intends to pay dividends on the ordinary shares following an acquisition at such times (if any) and in such amounts (if any) as the Board determines appropriate in its absolute discretion. The Company's current intention is to retain any earnings for use in its business operations, and the Company does not anticipate declaring any dividends in the foreseeable future. The Company will only pay dividends to the extent that to do so is in accordance with all applicable laws.

 

Corporate governance

 

In order to implement its business strategy, the Company has adopted a corporate governance structure whereby the key features of its structure are:-

 

·    The Company's Board of Directors comprises three non-executive Directors. The Board is knowledgeable and experienced and has extensive experience of making acquisitions.

·    Consistent with the rules applicable to companies with a Standard Listing, unless required by law or other regulatory process, shareholder approval is not required in order for the Company to complete an acquisition. The Company will, however, be required to obtain the approval of the Board of Directors, before it may complete an acquisition.

·    The Board is not subject to the provisions of a formal governance code and given its present size do not intend to formally adopt any specific code, but will apply governance the Directors consider to be appropriate, having due regard to the principles of governance set out in the UK Corporate Governance Code.

·    Until an acquisition is made, the Company will not have separate audit and risk, nominations or remuneration committees. The Board as a whole will instead review audit and risk matters, as well as the Board's size, structure and composition and the scale and structure of the Directors' fees, taking into account the interests of shareholders and the performance of the Company, and will take responsibility for the appointment of auditors and payment of their audit fee, monitor and review the integrity of the Company's financial statements and take responsibility for any formal announcements on the Company's financial performance.

·    The Corporate Governance Code recommends the submission of all directors for re-election at annual intervals. None of the Directors will be required to retire by rotation and be submitted for re-election until the first annual general meeting of the Company following an acquisition.

·    Following an acquisition, the Company may seek to transfer from a Standard Listing to either a Premium Listing or other appropriate listing venue, based on the track record of the Company or business it acquires, subject to fulfilling the relevant eligibility criteria at the time. If the Company is successful in obtaining a Premium Listing, further rules will apply to the Company under the Listing Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules and the Company will be obliged to comply with the Model Code and to comply or explain any derogation from the UK Corporate Governance Code.

 

Statement as to Disclosure of Information to Auditors

 

The Directors confirm that:

 

·     there is no relevant audit information of which the Company's statutory auditor is unaware; and

·     each Director has taken all the necessary steps he ought to have taken as a Director in order to make himself aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the Company's statutory auditor is aware of that information.

 

Auditors

 

The auditors, Crowe Clark Whitehill LLP, have expressed their willingness to continue in office and a resolution to reappoint them will be proposed at the Annual General Meeting.

 

By order of the Board:

Statement of Directors' Responsibilities

The Directors, whose names and functions appear on page 2 of the 2015 Report, are responsible for preparing the annual report and the financial statements. The Directors are required to prepare financial statements for the Company in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as adopted by the EU.

 

International Accounting Standard 1 requires that financial statements present fairly for each financial year the Company's financial position, financial performance and cash flows. This requires the faithful representation of transactions, other events and conditions in accordance with the definitions and recognition criteria for the assets, liabilities, income and expenses set out in the International Accounting Standards Board's "Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements". In virtually all circumstances, a fair representation will be achieved by compliance with all IFRS. Directors are also required to:

 

-     select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently,

-     present information, including accounting policies, in a manner that provides relevant, reliable, comparable and understandable information, and

-     provide additional disclosures when compliance with the specific requirements in IFRS is insufficient to enable users to understand the impact of particular transactions, other events and conditions on the Company's financial position and financial performance.

 

The Directors are responsible for keeping proper accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time, the financial position of the Company. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

 

The maintenance and integrity of the Senterra website is the responsibility of the Directors; work carried out by the auditors does not involve the consideration of these matters and, accordingly, the auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred in the accounts since they were initially presented on the website.

 

Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of the accounts and the other information included in annual reports may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.

 

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Financial Statements in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority ("DTR") and with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union.

 

The Directors confirm, to the best of their knowledge that:

 

·     the financial statements, prepared in accordance with the relevant financial reporting framework, give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit or loss of the Company;

·     the Strategic and Directors' Report include a fair review of the development and performance of the business and the financial position of the Company, together with a description of the principal risks and uncertainties that it faces; and

·     the annual report and financial statements, taken as a whole, are fair, balanced and understandable and provide the information necessary for shareholders to assess the company's performance, business model and strategy.

Notes to the Financial Statements

 

The notes to the financial statements form an integral part of these financial statements.

 

 

1.       General Information

 

The Company was incorporated in the United Kingdom under the Companies Act 2006 on 5 June 2015 and had not commenced substantive operations during the period under review. The address of the registered office of the Company is given on page 1 of the 2015 Report. The Company has been formed to take control of or invest in businesses within the oil and gas sector.

 

2.      Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The Board has reviewed the accounting policies set out below and considers them to be the most appropriate to the Company's business activities.

 

a)      Basis of Preparation

 

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as adopted for use by the European Union, and effective, or issued and early adopted, as at the date of these statements. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified for financial assets carried at fair value.

 

b)      Standards and interpretations issued but not yet applied

 

At the date of authorisation of this financial information, the directors have reviewed the Standards in issue by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") and IFRIC, which are effective for annual accounting periods ending on or after the stated effective date. In their view, none of these standards would have a material impact on the financial reporting of the Company.

 

c)       Comparative figures

 

No comparative figures have been presented as the financial information covers the period from incorporation to 31 December 2015.

 

d)      Going concern

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes that the Company will continue to be able to meet its liabilities as they fall due for the foreseeable future. The Company meets its day to day working capital requirements through existing cash reserves. The Directors have prepared projected cash flow information for a period of at least twelve months from the date of their approval of the financial statements. On the basis of this cash flow information, the Directors consider that the company will continue to operate without the need for additional financing. Therefore, the Directors consider it appropriate to prepare the financial statements on a going concern basis.

e)      Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers any cash on short-term deposits and other short term investments to be cash equivalents.

 

f)       Taxation

 

The tax currently payable is based on the taxable profit for the period. Taxable profit differs from net profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other periods 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 balance sheet date.

 

Deferred income tax is provided for using the liability method on temporary timing differences at the balance sheet date between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes. Deferred income tax liabilities are recognised in full for all temporary differences. Deferred income tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences carried forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, and carry-forward of unused tax credits and unused losses can be utilised. The carrying amount of deferred income tax assets is assessed at each balance sheet date 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 deferred income tax asset to be utilised. Unrecognised deferred income tax assets are reassessed at each balance sheet date and are recognised to the extent that is probable that future taxable profits will allow the deferred income tax asset to be recovered.

 

g)      Financial assets

 

Financial assets within the scope of IAS 39 are classified as either:

i)    financial assets at fair value through profit or loss

ii)   loans and receivables

iii)   held-to-maturity investments

iv)  available-for-sale financial assets

 

The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired. Management determines the classification of its financial assets at initial recognition and re-evaluates this classification at every reporting date.

 

As at the balance sheet date, the company did not have any financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, nor in the categories of held-to-maturity investments and available-for-sale financial assets.

 

h)      Financial liabilities and equity instruments

 

Classification as debt or equity

 

Financial liabilities and equity instruments issued by the company are classified according to the substance of the contractual arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability and an equity instrument.

 

Equity instruments

 

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

 

Incremental cost directly attributable to the issue of ordinary shares, net of any tax effects, are recognised as a deduction from equity.

 

Financial liabilities

 

Financial liabilities are classified as either financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss or financial liabilities measured at amortised cost.

 

Financial liabilities are classified as at fair value through profit or loss if the financial liability is either held for trading or it is designated as such upon initial recognition

 

Other financial liabilities

 

Trade and other payables are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs, and are subsequently measured at amortised cost, where applicable, using the effective interest method, with interest expense recognised on an effective yield basis.

 

i)       Derecognition of financial liabilities

 

The company derecognises financial liabilities when, and only when, the company's obligations are discharged, cancelled or they expire.

 

j)       Segmental Reporting

 

The Directors are of the opinion that the business comprises of a single economic activity, that of an investment company.

 

Therefore the financial information of the single segment is the same as that set out in the company statement of comprehensive income, company statement of financial position, the company statement of changes to equity and the company statement of cashflows.

 

 

k)      Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies

 

The Company does not enter into any forward exchange rate contracts.

 

The main financial risks arising from the Company's activities are cash flow interest rate risk, liquidity risk, price risk (fair value) and credit risk. The Board reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks and they are summarised as:

 

Cash Flow Interest Rate Risk - the Company's exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily to the Company's custodian accounts with the counterparty.

 

The Company's policy is to manage its interest income, when received, using a mixture of fixed and floating rate deposit accounts.

 

Liquidity Risk - the Company raises funds as required on the basis of budgeted expenditure and inflows. When funds are sought, the Company balances the costs and benefits of equity and debt financing. When funds are received they are deposited with banks of high standing in order to obtain market interest rates.

 

Price Risk - the carrying amount of the following financial assets and liabilities approximate to their fair value due to their short term nature: cash accounts, accounts receivable and accounts payable.

 

Credit Risk - with respect to credit risk arising from other financial assets of the Company, which comprise other receivables, the Company's exposure to credit risk arises from default of the counterparty, with a minimum exposure equal to the carrying amount of these instruments. The maximum exposure to credit risk for receivables and other financial assets are represented by their carrying amount.

 

 

3.       Critical accounting estimates and judgements

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of income, expenditure, assets and liabilities. Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated, including expectations of future events to ensure these estimates to be reasonable.

 

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 Company's nature of operations is to act as a special purpose acquisition company. This significantly reduces the level of estimates and assumptions required.

 

4.      Loss before income tax

 

The loss before income tax is stated after charging:

 


2015


£



Directors emoluments

6,000

Fees payable to the company's auditors

-     - Audit of the company's annual accounts

 

 

9,500

 

5.      Income tax

 

Corporation tax is calculated at 20% of the estimated taxable profit for the period.

 

The charge for the period can be reconciled to the loss in the Statement of Comprehensive Income as follows:


2015


      £



 

Loss before tax on continuing operations

(151,910)

 



 

Tax at the UK corporation tax rate of 20%

(30,382)

 

Tax effect of expenses that are not deductible in determining taxable profit

25,669

 

Change in unrecognised deferred tax assets

4,713

 

Tax charge for the period

-

 



 

 

The Company has accumulated trading losses of £24,000. No deferred tax asset was recognised in respect to these accumulated tax losses as there is insufficient evidence that the amount will be recovered in future years.

 

6.       Loss per share

 

The calculation of loss per share is based on the following loss and number of shares:



 

Loss for the period from continuing operations

£151,910



Weighted average shares in issue

6,961,905



Loss per share

£0.02

 

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss for the period from continuing operations of the company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.

 

There are no potential dilutive shares in issue.

 

 

7.       Other receivables

 


2015

Current:

£



Other receivables

1,106,129

Prepayments

3,165
