Chairman's statement

 

The revenue of the Group grew by 7.26% to £33.59 million in the first six months of 2016, which was mainly contributed by growth in the mobile phone prepaid airtime reload and bill payment business via the Group's existing banking channels (such as mobile banking, internet banking and ATMs) and payment terminal base in Malaysia.  As a result of the increased revenue, the Group recorded an operating profit of £0.29 million (H1 2015: operating profit of £0.22 million) and the Group's profit after tax increased to £0.14 million in the first six months of 2016, as compared to a profit after tax of £0.11 million in the first six months of 2015.

 

The contribution from the Group's operations in the Philippines remained insignificant with a small revenue generated through the provision of an e-payment solution.

 

As at 30 June 2016, the Group had cash and cash equivalents of £2.57 million (30 June 2015: cash and cash equivalents of £1.71 million) and the secured loans and borrowings from financial institutions were £3.05 million (30 June 2015: £2.43 million).  

 

Current trading and outlook

 

The Board of MobilityOne expects the trading performance in the second half of 2016 to remain positive notwithstanding the current economic situation in Malaysia which may present challenging business conditions.

 

Besides the Group's mobile phone prepaid airtime reload and bill payment business via its existing business channels, the Group will continue to explore new opportunities to expand its e-payment solutions and services in Malaysia to capitalise on the efforts of the Malaysian central bank to encourage switching from paper-based payments to e-payments. 

 

In view of the Group's past experience in the international remittance business, the Group is acquiring 50% of the issued and paid-up share capital of Unique Change Sdn Bhd ("Unique Change") for a nominal purchase consideration of RM10.00 (c. £1.87).  Unique Change is incorporated in Malaysia and provides international remittance services from Malaysia, mainly to Bangladesh, Nepal and Indonesia. It currently holds a remittance business license issued by the Central Bank of Malaysia and has 6 outlets in Malaysia.  The acquisition provides a good opportunity for the Group to partner with the existing shareholders of Unique Change to grow the business.  In 2015, there were more than 2.1 million foreign workers in Malaysia, mainly from Indonesia (39.2%), Nepal (23.5%) and Bangladesh (13.2%) who have the need to send money back to their home countries. Full details on the acquisition have been announced today.

NOTES TO THE INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.

Basis of preparation


 

The Group's interim financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2016 were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors on 28 September 2016.

 

The interim financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs and IFRIC interpretations) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), as adopted by the European Union, and with those parts of the Companies (Jersey) Law 1991 applicable to companies preparing their financial statements under IFRS. It has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" and does not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

 

Full details of the accounting policies adopted, which are consistent with those disclosed in the Company's 2015 Annual Report, will be included in the audited financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2016.

 

2.

Basis of consolidation


 

The consolidated statement of comprehensive income and statement of financial position include financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries made up to 30 June 2016.

 

3.

Nature of financial information

 

The unaudited interim financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2016 does not constitute statutory accounts under the meaning of Section 435 of the Companies Act 2006. The comparative figures for the year ended 31 December 2015 are extracted from the audited statutory financial statements. Full audited financial statements of the Group in respect of that financial year prepared in accordance with IFRS, which we received an unqualified audit opinion, have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.

 

4.

Functional and presentation currency

 

(i)         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 functional currency of the Group is Ringgit Malaysia (RM). The consolidated financial statements are presented in Pound Sterling (£), which is the Company's presentational currency as this is the currency used in the country in which the entity is listed.

 

Assets and liabilities are translated into Pound Sterling (£) at foreign exchange rates ruling at the Statement of Financial Position date. Results and cash flows are translated into Pound Sterling (£) using average rates of exchange for the period.

 

(ii)        Transactions and balances

 

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year/period-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income.

5.

Segmental analysis


No segmental analysis of revenues, profits, assets and liabilities are presented and no geographical segment information is presented as the Group mainly trades and provides services in only one region - the Far East.

 

6.

Taxation


Taxation on the income statement for the financial period comprises current and deferred tax. Current tax is the expected amount of taxes payable in respect of the taxable profit for the financial period and is measured using the tax rates that have been enacted at the Statement of Financial Position date.

 

Deferred tax is recognised on the liability method for all temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the Statement of Financial Position and its tax base at the Statement of Financial Position date. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits can be utilised. Deferred tax is not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or negative goodwill or from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction which is not a business combination and at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting profit nor taxable profit.

            

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the Statement of Financial Position date. The carrying amount of a deferred tax asset is reviewed at each Statement of Financial Position date and is reduced to the extent that it becomes probable that sufficient future taxable profit will be available.

 

Deferred tax is recognised in the income statement, except when it arises from a transaction which is recognised directly in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or credited directly in equity, or when it arises from a business combination that is an acquisition, in which case the deferred tax is included in the resulting goodwill or negative goodwill.

 

7.

Earnings per share


The basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the profit in the six month period ended 30 June 2016 of £144,761 (30 June 2015: profit of £113,165 and year ended 31 December 2015: profit of £165,678) attributable to ordinary shareholders by the number of ordinary shares outstanding at 30 June 2016 of 106,298,780 (30 June 2015: 106,298,780 and 31 December 2015: 106,298,780).

 

The diluted earnings per share for the six month period ended 30 June 2016 is calculated using the number of shares adjusted to assume the conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares of 116,898,780 (on 5 December 2014, the Company granted share options of 10,600,000 shares at 2.5p to directors and certain employees of the Group).

Contingent liabilities


 

In the period under review, corporate guarantees of RM20.0 million (£3.68 million) were given to a licensed bank by the Company for credit facilities granted to a subsidiary company.

 

10.

Significant accounting policies


 

The interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared applying the same accounting policies that were applied in the preparation of the Company's published consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015 except for the adoption of new and amended reporting standards, which are effective for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2016. Various amendments to standards and interpretations of standards are effective for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2016 as detailed in the 2015 Annual Report, none of which have any impact on reported results.

 



 




Amortisation of intangible assets

 

Software is amortised over its estimated useful life. Management estimated the useful life of this asset to be within 10 years. Changes in the expected level of usage and technological development could impact the economic useful life therefore future amortisation could be revised.

 

The Group determines whether goodwill is impaired at least on an annual basis. This requires an estimation of the value-in-use of the cash generating units ("CGU") to which goodwill is allocated. Estimating a value-in-use amount requires management to make an estimation of the expected future cash flows from the CGU and also to choose a suitable discount rate in order to calculate the present value of those cash flows.

 

The research and development costs are amortised on a straight-line basis over the life span of the developed assets. Management estimated the useful life of these assets to be within 5 years. Changes in the technological developments could impact the economic useful life and the residual values of these assets, therefore future amortisation charges could be revised.

 


Impairment of goodwill on consolidation

 

The Group's cash flow projections include estimates of sales. However, if the projected sales do not materialise there is a risk that the value of goodwill would be impaired.

 

The Directors have carried out a detailed impairment review in respect of goodwill. The Group assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired, by considering cash flows forecasts. The cash flow projections are based on the assumption that the Group can realise projected sales. A prudent approach has been applied with no residual value being factored. At the period end, based on these assumptions there was no indication of impairment of the value of goodwill or of development costs.

 


Research and development costs

 

All research costs are recognised in the income statement as incurred.

 

Expenditure incurred on projects to develop new products is capitalised and deferred only when the Group can demonstrate the technical feasibility of completing the intangible asset so that it will be available for use or sale, its intention to complete and its ability to use or sell the asset, how the asset will generate future economic benefits, the availability of resources to complete the project and the ability to measure reliably the expenditure during the development. Product development expenditures which do not meet these criteria are expensed when incurred.

 

Development costs, considered to have finite useful lives, are stated at cost less any impairment losses and are amortised through other operating expenses in the income statement using the straight-line basis over the commercial lives of the underlying products not exceeding 5 years. Impairment is assessed whenever there is an indication of impairment and the amortisation period and method are also reviewed at least at each Statement of Financial Position date.
