RED LEOPARD HOLDINGS PLC

Interim Accounts for Red Leopard Holdings Plc ("Red Leopard", the "Company" or the "Group")

for the six months ended 30th  June 2016

 

Red Leopard is pleased to announce its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30th June 2016.

As summarised in the Chairman's statement of our financial statements for the year ended 31st December 2015, which were announced on 29th June 2016, the market for junior mining companies, though showing some signs of recovery, remains challenging.  Despite silver prices being on an upward trend and currently showing a spot price of US$19 an ounce, management believe the market is not yet robust enough to allow us to raise sufficient funds to accelerate the works needed at the Idora Tunnel.

 Consequently, the Company is looking to acquire other complimentary assets which can give more critical mass to its operations, which should enable it to attract the necessary funding required.

The Company continues to consider all opportunities and financing options to enhance shareholder value and management look forward to providing shareholders with further updates in due course.

 

J J May

 

Chairman

 

 

A copy of the interim results will be available on the Company's website www.redleopardholdings.com

Notes to the consolidated financial statements

 

1        Nature of operations and general information

PRINCIPAL ACTIVITY

Red Leopard Holdings plc is focussed on the natural resources sector (both exploration and production), with a particular emphasis on precious mining assets and interests. 

BUSINESS REVIEW

Financial overview and performance

Loss for the group before tax for the period was £96,523 (2015: £113,981).

Strategy
The Company's strategy is to adhere to its investing policy focussed on natural resources. Its primary objective is that of securing for its shareholders the best possible value consistent with achieving, over time, both capital growth and income.

Investing Policy

The investing policy is to pursue investments in the natural recourses sector, and in particular, precious metals.

The Directors are focussed on North and South America, where they believe that a number of opportunities exist to acquire interests in suitable projects, although other regions may also be conisdered. Investments may be made in exploration, development and/or producing assets.

The Directors may consider it appropriate to purchase companies or interests in assets which may result in an equity interest in any proposed investment ranging from a minority position to 100 per cent ownership. Proposed investments may be made in either quoted or unquoted companies and structured as a direct acquisition, joint venture or a direct interest in a project.

Where necessary, the Company may seek participation in the management or with the board of directors of an entity in which the Company invests; or in the event that it is acquired then in the on-going enlarged entity.

New investments will be held for the medium to longer term; although shorter term disposal of any investments cannot be ruled out should such an opportunity present itself.

There is no limit on the number of projects into which the Company may invest, and the Company's financial resources may be invested in a number of propositions or just one, which may be deemed to be a reverse takeover pursuant to Rule 14 of the AIM Rules. Where the Company builds a portfolio of related assets it is possible that there may be cross-holdings between such assets. The Company does not currently intend to fund any investments with debt or other borrowings but may do so if appropriate.

The Directors undertake initial project assessments themselves with additional independent technical advice as required. The Company does not have a separate investment manager.

 

The Directors may offer new Ordinary Shares by way of consideration as well as cash subject to its availability to the Company.  The Company may, in appropriate circumstances, issue debt securities or otherwise borrow money to complete an investment.  The Directors do not intend to acquire any cross-holdings in other corporate entities that have an interest in the Ordinary Shares.

Going Concern

To ensure the full development of its assets and to actively pursue its investing policy, the Company will require further funds to finance its work programme. The Directors are negotiating with their advisors and a number of potential investors for the injection of sufficient new capital, via further equity raisings or debt finance, which would provide sufficient funds to allow it to pursue its objectives, however no funding commitments have yet been obtained.

The Directors are confident of being able to raise the necessary funding. In the short term, prior to the completion of a successful fundraise, the Group has limited but immediate working capital requirements which a Shareholder and Director has committed to supporting the company in meeting.  The success of a future fundraise has been identified as a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt over the going concern assessment. Whilst acknowledging this uncertainty, based upon the expectation of completing a successful fundraising in the near future, the Directors consider it appropriate to continue to prepare the financial statements of the Company on a going concern basis.  The financial statements do not include the adjustments that would result if the Group and Company were unable to continue as a going concern.

Corporate Information

Red Leopard Holdings plc is the Group's ultimate parent company.  It is incorporated and domiciled in Great Britain.  The address of Red Leopard Holdings plc's registered office is 50 Jermyn Street, London, SW1Y 6LX.  Red Leopard Holdings plc's shares are listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange.

2      Basis of preparation

The financial information presented in this half-yearly report constitutes the condensed consolidated financial statements (the interim financial statements) of Red Leopard Holdings plc for the six months ended 30 June 2016.

The interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2015 which have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted for use in the EU. The financial information in this half yearly report, which has been approved by the Board and authorised for issue is unaudited. The financial information set out in this interim report does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in Section 434 (3) of the Companies Act 2006.  The comparative financial information presented herein for the year ended 31 December 2015 has been extracted from the Group's Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2015 which have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.

These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

These consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies adopted in the last annual financial statements for the year to 31 December 2015.  

The accounting policies have been applied consistently throughout the Group for the purposes of preparation of these consolidated interim financial statements. The consolidated financial information includes the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries, after the elimination of inter-company transactions and balances.

3      Earnings per share

The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the loss attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares in issue during the year.

The calculation of diluted loss per share is based on the basic loss per share, adjusted to allow for the issue of shares and the post tax effect of dividends and/or interest, on the assumed conversion of all dilutive options and other dilutive potential ordinary shares.

Reconciliations of the loss and weighted average number of shares used in the calculations are set out below.

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

            -                       Options for ordinary shares

            -                       Convertible loan notes for ordinary shares

The effect of conversion of all potential dilutive ordinary shares would have an anti-dilutive effect on loss per share and therefore they have not been incorporated in the diluted loss per share calculation.

On 24 September 2013, the Company acquired the entire issued share capital of Red Leopard Mining Inc ("RLM"). There are no assets or liabilities in RLM other than mining claims located in Shoshone County, Idaho, USA, which are recognised as separately identifiable intangible assets in respect of exploration and development rights. The Company pays annual rental fees per claim before 31 August to keep the claims in good standing for the following year.

 

The Directors assess the asset at each reporting date for indications of impairment. The mining claims have not yet been fully developed; therefore, there are only inferred resources to form a basis for an impairment review. The Directors have determined therefore that no impairment is required.
