PAPILLON HOLDINGS PLC
Interim management report

Half yearly report for the period ended 30 June 2016

To the members of Papillon Holdings plc

Results for the period

For the period from incorporation on 19 October 2015 to 30 June 2016, the Company's results included the running costs of the Company and listing fees on the London Stock Exchange which, through careful control, we have kept to a minimum

During the period, the Company raised £874,000 gross in equity capital and on 24th June 2016 the Company successfully listed its entire share capital on the London Stock Exchange.  

Long-term strategy and business objectives

The Company will be seeking to acquire a company or asset within the industrial or services sector, with a view to implementing a strategy that will generate significant value for its shareholders.

Risks and uncertainties

The Company is a newly formed entity, lacking an operating history, and therefore, investors have no basis on which to evaluate the Company's ability to achieve its objective of identifying, acquiring and operating one or more companies or businesses

Although the Company will seek to evaluate the risks inherent in a particular target business (including the industries and geographic regions in which it operates), it cannot offer any reassurance that it will make a proper discovery or assessment of all of the significant risks. Furthermore, no assurance may be made that an investment in Ordinary Shares will ultimately prove to be more favourable to investors than a direct investment, if such opportunity were available, in a target company or business.  

Going Concern

As stated in note 1 to the condensed financial statements, the directors are satisfied that the Company has sufficient resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future, a period of not less than 12 months from the date of this report. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed financial statements.

Post Balance Sheet Event

On 9 September 2016 the Company informed shareholders that it has signed a non-binding Heads of Terms to acquire the entire issued share capital of myclubbetting.com Limited, a specialised betting and gaming related business, for new shares in the Company (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition, if completed, would result in Papillon shareholders having a minority interest in the enlarged group (the "Group"). The Acquisition is subject, inter alia, to the completion of due diligence, documentation and compliance with all regulatory requirements, including the Listing and Prospectus Rules and, as required, the Takeover Code. The Acquisition, if it proceeds, will constitute a Reverse Takeover under the Listing Rules since, interalia,in substance it will result in a fundamental change in the business of the issuer.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED INTERIM REPORT

  1. Accounting policies

Basis of preparation

This announcement was approved by the Board of directors on 28th September 2016

The financial information in this interim report has been prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards. IFRS comprises standards issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the interpretations issued by the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) as adopted by the European Union (EU).

There are no IFRS, or IFRIC interpretations that are effective for the first time in this period that would be expected to have a material impact on the company.

The financial information has been prepared under the historical cost convention, as modified by the accounting for financial instruments at fair value.

The Directors are of the opinion that the financial information should be prepared on a going concern basis, in the light of the Company's financial resources.

These condensed interim financial statements for the nine months ended 30 June 2016 are unaudited.

No taxation charge has arisen for the period and the Directors have not declared an interim dividend.

Copies of the interim report can be found on the Company's website at www.papillonholdingsplc.com

Going concern

The directors are satisfied that the Company has sufficient resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future, a period of not less than 12 months from the date of this report. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed financial statements.

2. Loss per share

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the earnings attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period.

For diluted loss per share, the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue is adjusted to assume conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares.

The calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share is based on the following figures:-

      Period ended

2016

(unaudited)
 

Loss for the period
     

(218,005)
       
Weighted average number of
  shares - basic and diluted
    15,921,034
Basic earnings per share      (1.37p)
       
Diluted earnings per share      (1.37p)
       

2. Loss per share (Continued)

The basic and diluted earnings per share are the same, since where a loss is incurred the effect of outstanding share options and warrants is considered anti-dilutive and is ignored for the purpose of the loss per share calculation.
