Escape Hunt posts a pre-tax loss of £1.61 million for the seven month period to 31 December when it traded under the name of Dorcaster.
The group said there were no revenues and the majority of the loss related to expenditure on the company's admission to AIM, due diligence costs in reviewing potential acquisitions and preliminary costs in connection with the acquisition of the Escape Hunt Group.
Dorcaster was formed in May 2016 to undertake one or more acquisitions of target companies in the consumer and leisure sectors.
The company was admitted to AIM, raising gross proceeds of £9.7 million by way of a placing of its shares and commenced trading on the London Stock Exchange's secondary market for listed securities on 8 July.
During the period to 31 December, the company has not traded but in November entered into an exclusivity agreement to negotiate for the acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Experiential Ventures Limited ('Escape Hunt'), a leading global provider of live escape-the-room and exit-game experiences.
