Parallel Media Group Plc ("PMG" the "Group" or the "Company")

Annual Results for the year ended 31 December 2016

 

Parallel Media Group Plc (AIM: PAA), a leading event marketing and media agency, announces its results for the year ended 31 December 2016.

 

Charirman's Statement

 

I have pleasure in presenting the Company's Annual Report, Strategic Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2016. Over the past year PMG has continued to restructure its balance sheet and strengthen its business in Asia.

 

Activity of PMG during the period under review:

-      Organised the sponsorship by AIA of Maroon 5's tour of Hong Kong and Thailand;

-      Continued to seek sponsorship for its European Tour golf event in the Far East through its Singapore subsidiary the Championship Limited; and

-      Undertaken a review of its asset base and sold Parallel Media Group (Championship) Limited to its Chairman, thereby significantly reducing the Group's liabilities.

 

Other significant events:

-      The Company has reached a settlement with Arena Group over the payment of fees, whereby the Company has received a cash sum of US$125K (£86K) received in March 2016 and another US$25K (£20K) received in January 2017; and 

-      The Company has further improved its balance sheet through the write back of certain old credit balances amounting to £237K, less the amounts paid towards certain of these liabilities of £44K, as the Directors no longer consider that these amounts represent liabilities of the Group. The net credit of £193K has been included as an exceptional item.

 

As in previous years I have continued to support the working capital requirements of the business and the amount lent to the Group at 31 December 2016 amounted to £1,417K (2015 - £872K). Whilst there are no formal terms for these loans, I had agreed with the independent director Ranjit Murugason (the "Independent Director") that these loans would not carry any interest and remained repayable on demand. Subsequent to the year end, on 29 June 2017 the Company has entered into formal agreements in relation to these loans, whereby interest will be payable at 5 per cent per annum commencing on 1 January 2017 and the interest will be rolled up into the loan principal. The total loans provided by me will be repayable by 1 July 2018, or at an earlier date at the discretion of the Company. At the date of publication of these accounts my loans to PMG total approximately £1,904K, including £38K of accrued interest and this sum also includes the repayment of the Group's outstanding loan with Lloyds Bank which I have recently settled for £213K, together with the associated legal and other fees of £18K.

 

Outlook:

With a much cleaner balance sheet and a reduced cost base, PMG can look clearly to the future to focus on its two primary sources of revenue - its live event division and its entertainment business.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow board members, as well as all of our hard working staff around the world.

A notice of the Company's AGM will be distributed in due course and be made available on the Company's website.

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU  596/2014).

 

 

Strategic Report

 

The Directors of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings, which together comprise Parallel Media Group, present their Strategic Report for the year ended 31 December 2016.

 

The Strategic Report is a statutory requirement under the Companies Act 2006 and is intended to provide fair and balanced information that enables the Directors to be satisfied that they have complied with s172 of the Companies Act 2006, which sets out the Directors' duty to promote the success of the Company.

 

Principal Activities

 

The principal activities of the Group during the year ended 31 December 2016 were live music and entertainment events.

 

Organisation Review

 

PMG has expertise in guiding some of the world's leading brands in the Asian markets. Founded in 1987 by Chairman, David Ciclitira, and listed on the London Stock Exchange's AIM since August 2001, the operations of PMG are run from two main offices in London and Singapore.

 

The Board of Directors now comprises the Chairman and two non-executive Directors. Their profiles can be found on the Company's website www.parallelmediagroup.com 

 

Strategy and Business Plan

 

PMG now focuses on two distinct business areas, Sport and live event Entertainment.

 

In Sport PMG specialises in golf and has been responsible for promoting tournaments such as The Championship (formerly the Ballantine's Championship) and the Prudential Causeway Trophy, a Ryder Cup style competition between professional golfers from Singapore and Malaysia.  Discussions continue regarding the renamed 2017 Golf Tournament.

 

In entertainment PMG specialises in connecting international brands with music solutions in the Asian markets and will continue to focus on its live events over the next 12 months.

The media business is still under review by the Group's management.

 

Financial and Performance Review

 

The consolidated Income Statement is set out on page 19. The Group made an operating loss of £522K (2015 - loss of £266K) when compared with the previous year. The Group recorded a loss for the year of £1,734K (2015 - profit of £611K) after an exceptional charge of £1,182K (2015 - profit from discontinued operations of £920K), which includes impairment charges relating to the Group's Tournament Rights, which are held as an intangible asset, an impairment charge against the carrying value of the Group's investment in a subsidiary company and the write back of certain liabilities which are no longer considered payable. The loss per share on total operations was 57.6p (2015 - Profit 20.3p).

 

The net liabilities of the Group as at 31 December, 2016 were £2.749K (2015 - £1,009K). The Directors have undertaken an impairment review regarding the value of Tournament Rights. As no new tournament was held in 2016 and the Directors have no reasonable certainty that a golf tournament will be held in 2017, whilst the Group still retains the right to promote European Tour golf events, as at 31 December 2016, the Directors have taken the view that the value of this intangible asset has been impaired and have accordingly written the value of this asset down by £1,321K to a carrying value of £1K, which is shown as an exceptional item. The Group is continuing the search for a primary sponsor such that a golf tournament in the Far East can be held in the future.

 

The investment in a subsidiary (the "Investments") originally related to the 25% equity purchase of Parallel Media

Group Asia Pte Ltd ("PMGA") in 2013. As a result of PMGA's trading losses in recent years and the balance sheet deficit at 31 December 2016 and there being no reasonable certainty of PMGA returning profitability in the near term, the Directors have undertaken an impairment review regarding the value of the Investments at 31 December 2016 and have taken the view that the value of this asset has been impaired and have accordingly written off this asset in its entirety (£54K charge included as an exceptional item).

 

PMG had entered into a long term agreement with Team Rock in December 2015, which allowed the Group to represent Team Rock's interest in Asia, specifically to co-promote the Classic Rock awards in Japan. The event was held in Tokyo in November 2016 to much critical acclaim and it is therefore disappointing to report that Team Rock went into liquidation in December 2016 and the Group is considered unlikely at this point in time to receive its anticipated revenue of £60K in the foreseeable future and as a result the Directors have made a full provision against this receivable.

 

Management have also identified that, due to an accounting error, both turnover and overheads were overstated in the unaudited interim results for the 6 months ended 30 June 2016 by £67K. The re-stated numbers would

therefore show turnover of £200K (as previously announced £267K) and other administrative expenses of £141K (as previously announced £208K). These adjustments produce no change to the stated operating loss before exceptional items of £110K.

The statement of financial position of the Group is set out in page 21 and the statement of cash flows is set out on page 25.

 

Operating Review

 

Sport

-      Continues to seek sponsorship for its European Tour date.

Entertainment

-      Organised the sponsorship by AIA of Maroon 5's tour of Hong Kong and Thailand.

Media

-      Under review by the management of the Company.

Risk and Uncertainties

Revenue risk:

PMG derives the majority of its revenues from events promotion and sponsorship sales in Asia. Sponsorship sales rely on international brands seeking to expand their presence in the Asian markets. A downturn in Asian sponsorship could negatively impact PMG results. PMG is working to mitigate this risk through the development of long-term sponsorship contracts.

 

Cost risk:

A considerable portion of PMG's cost of sales is derived from business in Asia through the delivery of events in the region. Increases in local supplier costs may negatively impact PMG's financial performance. PMG works to mitigate this risk by working with internationally recognised suppliers and renegotiates supply contracts on an event by event basis.

 

Event cancellation risk:

When staging international golf events in the Asia region. To mitigate the impact of event cancellation, PMG insures against this risk.

 

New product risks:

PMG carries out market research on new products and expects all new products to generate revenues.

 

Financial Instruments

 

Although PMG is headquartered in the UK, a considerable portion of revenue and costs are denominated in US dollars, Singapore dollars, Euros and Korean Won. As a result, the Group's consolidated financial statements (presented in Sterling) can be affected by adverse currency movements. The Group's financial risk management objective is to minimise the exposure to such foreign currency risks. PMG's policy is to match US dollar, Euro and Korean Won revenue and costs as closely as is practicable.

 

The Group is exposed to interest rate risk from movements in the bank base rate. The Company's £251K debt facility with Lloyds incurred interest at 4% above base, prior to its repayment.

 

The Group is exposed to the usual credit risk and cash flow risk associated with selling on credit and manages this through credit control procedures. The Group's customers are predominantly comprised of, large multi-national luxury brands. The sponsorship & consulting revenues are secured by contracts for the provision of services. Title sponsors pay contracted stage payments in regular intervals throughout the year. Secondary sponsors pay contracted sponsorship fees usually 60 days prior to the event. The Group aims to ensure that the majority of sponsorship is paid prior to the provision of the service or event.

 

The Group and Company's surplus liquid resources were maintained on short-term interest bearing deposits.  The Group plans to continue to meet operating and other commitments as they fall due. Liquidity risk is managed through cash flow forecasts and regular planning.

 

Internal Controls and Risk Management

 

The Directors are responsible for the Group's system of internal financial control. Although no system of internal financial control can provide absolute assurance against material misstatement or loss, the Group's system is designed to bring reasonable assurance that problems are identified on a timely basis and dealt with appropriately.

 

The Board reviews capital investment, additional borrowing facilities, guarantees and insurance arrangements.

 

Key Performance Indicators

 

PMG is looking to focus on its two primary sources of revenue, namely, its live event division and its entertainment business. As these develop in the future, the Board will develop a set of specific KPIs that are relevant to the business. The performance measures used to monitor the business during the period under review are disclosed in the Financial and Performance Review set out above.

 

Forward Looking Statement

 

PMG will continue to focus on its Live Events over the forthcoming 12 months and has been looking for suitable acquisitions in the live event entertainment sector. I am pleased to report that the Board has identified potential acquisition opportunities and is currently in the process of evaluating these, although there can be no certainty that any transaction will be completed. Further announcements will be made as and when appropriate.

 

Corporate Governance

 

The Group is committed to high standards of corporate governance. The non-executive director Timothy Sturm was Chairman of the Audit Committee until his resignation on 12 January 2017, while Ranjit Murugason continues his role as a non-executive director and is now Chairman of the Audit Committee.

 

Role of the Board

 

The Board's role is to agree PMG's long-term direction and strategy and monitor achievement of its objectives. The Board aims to meet six times a year for these purposes and hold additional meetings where necessary. The Board receives reports on all significant strategic and operational matters.

 

Shareholders

 

The Board seeks to protect shareholders' interests by following where appropriate the guidelines in the UK Corporate Governance Code. The annual general meeting provides the Board with an opportunity to informally meet and communicate with investors.

 

Suppliers and Contractors

 

It is Group policy that appropriate terms and conditions for its transactions be agreed with its suppliers and that payment should be made in accordance with those terms and conditions, provided that the supplier has also complied with them.  The Group does not follow any code or standard on payment practice.

 

This strategic report was approved by the Board of Directors on 29 June 2017 and signed on its behalf.

Directors' Responsibility Statement

 

The Directors are responsible for preparing the strategic report, the Directors' report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations.

 

Company law requires the Directors to prepare Group and Company financial statements for each financial year. As required by the AIM Rules of the London Stock Exchange, the Directors have prepared the Group financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union and have also elected to prepare the parent Company financial statements in accordance with those standards. Under company law the Directors must not approve the financial statements unless they are satisfied that they give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Company and the Group and of the profit or loss of the Group for that period.

 

In preparing these financial statements the Directors are required to:

 

·     select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;

·     make judgements and accounting estimates that are reasonable and prudent;

·     state whether the Group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union; and

·     prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Company and the Group will continue in business.

 

The Directors are responsible for keeping adequate accounting records that are sufficient to show and explain the Group's transactions and disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company and the Group and enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Companies Act 2006. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and the Group and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

 

The Directors are responsible for the maintenance and integrity of the corporate and financial information included on the Company's website. Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of the financial statements and other information included in annual reports may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.

 

 

Independent Auditor's Report to the members of Parallel Media Group PLC

 

We have audited the financial statements of Parallel Media Group plc for the year ended 31 December 2016 which comprise the Consolidated Income Statement, Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, Consolidated and Company Statements of Financial Position, Consolidated and Company Statements of Changes in Equity, Consolidated and Company Statements of Cash Flows and the related notes. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union and, as regards the parent Company financial statements, as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006.

 

This report is made solely to the Company's members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the Companies Act 2006. Our audit work has been undertaken for no purpose other than to draw to the attention of the Company's members those matters which we are required to include in an auditor's report addressed to them. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to any party other than the Company and Company's members as a body, for our work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.

 

Respective responsibilities of Directors and auditor

As explained more fully in the Directors' Responsibilities Statement set out on page 16 the Directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view. Our responsibility is to audit and express an opinion on the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland). Those standards require us to comply with the Auditing Practices Board's (APB's) Ethical Standards for Auditors.

 

Scope of the audit of the financial statements

An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the Group's circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the Directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. In addition we read all the financial and non-financial information in the annual report to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and to identify any information that is apparently materially incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with, the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report.

 

 

Opinion on financial statements

In our opinion:

·   the group financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of the Group's and of the parent Company's affairs as at 31 December 2016 and of the Group's loss for the year then ended;

·   the group financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union;

·   the parent Company financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union and as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006; and

·   the financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006.

 

Opinion on other matters prescribed by the Companies Act 2006

In our opinion, based on the work undertaken in the course of the audit:

·   the information given in the Strategic Report and the Directors' Report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements; and

·   the Strategic Report and the Directors' Report have been prepared in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

 

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

In the light of the knowledge and understanding of the Group and its environment obtained in the course of

the audit, we have not identified material misstatements in the Strategic Report or the Directors' Report.

 

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters where the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if, in our opinion:

·    adequate accounting records have not been kept by the parent company or returns adequate for our             audit have not been received from branches not visited by us;

·    the parent company financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and return;

·    certain disclosures of Directors' remuneration specified by law are not made; and

·    we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit.

Parallel Media Group plc

NOTES FORMING PART OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for the year ended 31 December 2016

 

1.    Basis of preparation

 

These financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis as modified by use of the fair-value basis where required and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union, and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS as at 31 December 2016.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of policies and reported amounts in the financial statements which are disclosed in note 3.

 

A separate Income Statement or Statement of Comprehensive Income for the parent Company has not been presented as permitted by section 408 of the Companies Act 2006. The parent Company loss for the year was £1,651K (2015 - Loss as restated £1,072K).

 

1.1  Going concern

The Directors have prepared trading and cash flow forecasts for the Group for the year ended 31 December 2017. The forecasts incorporate trading assumptions, including sponsorship from existing tournaments, new sponsorship revenues and revenues from new products. The forecasts show that the Group has sufficient cash to meet liabilities as they fall due for a period of 12 months from the date of signature of the financial statements.

 

In addition, the Directors have received confirmation that financial support will be provided to the PMG Group of companies sufficient to enable the Group to continue to trade and meet its financial obligations as they fall due for the foreseeable future being at least 12 months from the date that the Parallel Media Group plc financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016 are approved and signed.

 

The Directors believe these forecasts to be realistic and consequently have prepared the financial statements on the going concern basis, which assumes that the Group will continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.

 

1.2  Adoption of standards effective in 2016

The financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and Interpretations as adopted by the EU in force at the reporting date.

 

a)    New and amended standards adopted by the Group.

There were no new standards in effect that have had a significant effect on the financial statements. There have been improvements to standards which provide clarifications rather than substantive changes to requirements.

 

New and Revised Standards

 

IFRS in issue but not applied in the current financial statements

 

The following IFRS and IFRIC Interpretations have been issued but have not been applied by the Group and the Company in preparing these financial statements, as they are not as yet effective and in some cases had not yet been adopted by the EU. The Company intends to adopt these Standards and Interpretations when they become effective, rather than adopt them early.

 

·    IFRS 9, 'Financial Instruments'

·    IFRS 15, 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers'

·    IFRS 16 Leases

·   IFRS 10 and IAS 28 (amendments), 'Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture'

·   Amendments to IFRS 2, 'Classification and Measurement of Share-based Payment Transactions'

·   Amendments to IAS 7, 'Disclosure Initiative'

·   Amendments to IAS 12, 'Recognition of Deferred Tax assets for Unrealised Losses'

   

1.2  Adoption of standards effective in 2016 (continued)

The Directors do not expect that the adoption of the Standards listed above will have a material impact on the Group in future periods except that IFRS 9 will impact both the measurement and disclosure of financial instruments and IFRS 15 may have an impact on revenue recognition and related disclosures. Beyond this, it is not practicable to provide a reasonable estimate of the effect of IFRS 9 and IFRS 15 until a detailed review has been completed.

 

IFRS 16 is a significant change to lease accounting and all leases will require balance sheet recognition of a liability and a right-of-use asset, except short term leases of low value assets. The effect on the Group is expected to be immaterial.

 

A number of IFRS and IFRIC interpretations are also currently in issue which are not relevant for the Company's activities and which have not therefore been adopted in preparing these financial statements.

 

2. Accounting policies

 

2.1 Consolidation and investments

The consolidated financial statements incorporate the results of the Company and all of its subsidiary undertakings as at 31 December 2016 using the purchase method of accounting. Under the purchase method the results of subsidiary undertakings are included from the date of acquisition. On disposal, the results are included up to the date of disposal.  Inter-company balances, transactions and unrealised gains/losses are eliminated on consolidation.

 

2.2 Intangible assets - Tournament rights

The rights to promote European Tour golf events were acquired in September 2006 and are included in the statement of financial position as intangible assets in the audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016. These assets are amortised on a straight line basis over their expected life of 20 years. Intangible assets acquired are held at cost less amortisation and are reviewed on an annual basis for impairment.

 

2.2.1 Intangible assets - Development costs

Development costs are included in the statement of financial position at cost less any impairment provision. Development costs are only recognised where it can be demonstrated that the project is technically feasible;

 

2.2.1 Intangible assets - Development costs (continued)

where there is a clear intention to complete the project; that there is ability to use or sell the asset; that there is a high probability of future economic benefits and expenditure can be measured reliably.

 

Amortisation is charged to the Income Statement on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the intangible asset. This is between 2 and 11 years based on the asset unless such lives are indefinite.  These changes are included in administrative expenses in the Income Statement.

 

2.3 Investment in joint ventures

A joint venture is an entity over which the Group has joint control. Joint control is the contractually agreed sharing of control over an economic activity, and exists only when the strategic financial and operating decisions relating to the activity require the unanimous consent of the parties sharing control. The investment in a joint venture is initially recognised at cost and adjusted for the Group's share of the changes in the net assets of the joint venture after the date of acquisition, and for any impairment in value. If the Group's share of losses of a joint venture exceeds its interest in the joint venture, the Group discontinues recognising its share of further losses.

 

2.4 Property, plant & equipment

All property, plant and equipment assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.

 

Depreciation is provided on office equipment and fixtures & fittings at 20% on a straight line basis. Residual values, remaining useful lives and depreciation methods are reviewed annually and adjusted if appropriate.

 

2.5 Impairment of assets

The carrying amounts of the Group's assets, other than inventories, are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment.

 

An impairment loss is recognised whenever the carrying amount of an asset or its cash-generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount. Impairment losses are recognised in the Income Statement. An impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the asset's carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation, if no impairment loss had been recognised.

 

2.6 Financial instruments

The Group classifies financial instruments, or their component parts, on initial recognition as a financial asset, a financial liability or an equity instrument in accordance with the substance of the contractual arrangement.

 

Financial instruments are recognised on trade date when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial instruments are recognised initially at fair-value plus, in the case of a financial instrument not at fair-value through profit and loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the financial instrument.

 

Financial instruments are derecognised on trade date when the Group is no longer a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

 

2.7 Trade receivables

Trade receivables are stated at their amortised cost. Trade receivables are reduced by appropriate allowances for estimated irrecoverable amounts.

 

2.8 Cash and cash equivalents

Cash equivalents comprise short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

 

2.9 Trade payables

Trade payables are stated at their amortised cost.

 

2.10 Interest-bearing borrowings (other than compound financial instruments)

Interest-bearing borrowings are stated at amortised cost using the effective interest method. The effective interest method is a method of calculating the amortised cost of a financial liability and of allocating interest expense over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash payments through the expected life of the financial liability.

 

2.11 Share based payments

Options are measured at fair-value at grant date using the Black-Scholes model. The fair-value is expensed on a straight line basis over the vesting period, based on an estimate of the number of options that will eventually vest. Cash settled share based payment transactions results in the recognition of a liability at its current fair-value.

 

2.12 Revenue recognition

Revenue includes sponsorship, management fees, sales & consulting fees, and income from sales of broadcasting rights. Revenue is recognised when the Group has earned the right to receive consideration for its performance, measured on the following basis:

 

(i)     Management fees and other fees earned - on rendering of services to third parties.

(ii)   Income from sale of sponsorship and commercial rights - on a straight line basis in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

(iii)  Income from sale of broadcasting rights - on delivery of the programmes to broadcasters in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

 

2.13 Deferred taxation

Deferred tax is provided in full using the balance sheet liability method. Deferred tax is the future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and tax bases of assets and liabilities shown on the statement of financial position.

 

The amount of deferred tax provided is based on the expected manner of recovery or settlement of the carrying amount of assets and liabilities, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date.

 

The Group does not recognise deferred tax liabilities, or deferred tax assets, on temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries, as it is not considered probable that the temporary differences will reverse in the foreseeable future.

 

A deferred tax asset is recognised only to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the asset can be utilised. The carrying amounts of the deferred tax assets are reviewed at each statement of financial position date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the assets to be recovered.

 

2.14 Segmental reporting

The Group has three operating segments, namely: the Sports, Entertainment and Media segments. In identifying these operating segments, management generally follows the Group's service lines representing its main products and services (see note 4).

 

Each of these operating segments is managed separately as each requires different technologies, marketing approaches and other resources. All inter-segment transfers are carried out at arm's length prices.

 

For management purposes, the Group uses the same measurement policies as those used in its financial statements, except for certain items not included in determining the operating profit of the operating segments, such as share-based payment expenses.

 

In addition, corporate assets which are not directly attributable to the business activities of any operating segment are not allocated to a segment. This primarily applies to the Group's headquarters.

 

2.15 Foreign currencies

Monetary assets and liabilities expressed in foreign currencies are translated at the rates of exchange ruling at the reporting date.  Transactions in foreign currencies are translated at the rate ruling at the date of the transaction. Differences on exchange arising on translation of subsidiaries are charged directly to other comprehensive income. All other exchange differences have been charged to the Income Statement in the period under review.

 

2.16 Business combinations

The consolidated financial statements incorporate the results of business combinations using the purchase method.  The cost of an acquisition is measured as an aggregate of the consideration transferred, measured at the acquisition date fair-value and the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree. For each business combination, the Group measures the non-controlling interest in the acquiree at the proportionate share of the acquiree's identifiable net assets. Subsequent changes in the proportion of the non-controlling interests, which do not result in the de-recognition of the subsidiary, are accounted for in equity. Costs incurred in connection with the acquisition are recognised in profit or loss as incurred.

 

When the Group acquires a business, it assesses the financial assets and liabilities assumed for appropriate classification and designation in accordance with the contractual terms, economic circumstances and pertinent conditions at the acquisition date.

 

 If the business combination is achieved in stages, the acquisition date fair-value of the Group's previously held equity interest in the acquiree is re-measured to fair-value at the acquisition date through profit or loss.  Goodwill is initially measured at cost being the excess of the consideration transferred over the Group's share of net identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed. If this consideration is lower than the fair-value of nets assets of the subsidiary acquired, the difference is recognised in profit or loss.

 

After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less any recognised impairment losses. For the purpose of impairment testing, goodwill acquired in a business combination is, from the acquisition date, allocated to either the acquired business or to each of the Group's cash generating units that are expected to benefit from the combination irrespective of whether other assets or liabilities of the acquiree are assigned to those units.

 

Where goodwill forms a part of a cash-generating unit and part of the operation within that unit is disposed of, the goodwill associated with the operation disposed of is included in the carrying amount of the operation when determining the gain or loss on disposal of the operation. Goodwill disposed of in these circumstances is measured based on the relative values of the operation disposed of and the portion of the cash-generating unit until retained.

 

Goodwill arising from business combinations is assessed for impairment annually.

 

The results of the acquired operations are included in the consolidated Income Statement and consolidated statement of comprehensive income from the date on which control is obtained.

 

2.17 Exceptional items

Exceptional costs and are those costs incurred by the Group which are considered by the Directors to be material in size and are unusual and infrequent in occurrence which require separate disclosure within the financial statements.

 

3. Accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of financial information in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, in the case of the Group, being International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union, requires the Directors to make estimates and judgements that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, income and expenditure and the disclosures made in financial statements. Such estimates and judgements must be continually evaluated based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events.

        

The significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies as set out above, and the key source of estimation, were:

         

3.1  Intangible assets

Tournament rights are the rights to promote European Tour golf events acquired in a market transaction in September 2006. These assets are carried at cost less amortisation and impairment. Amortisation is calculated to write-off the assets over their expected useful life of 20 years. Following an impairment review and subsequent provision for impairment, tournament rights have a carrying value of £1K (2015 - £1,458K).

 

3.2 Investments

 

The investment in a subsidiary (the "Investments") originally related to the 25% equity purchase of Parallel Media Group Asia PTE Ltd ("PMGA") in 2013. As a result of PMGA's trading losses in recent years and the balance sheet deficit at 31 December, 2016 and there being no reasonable certainty of PMGA returning to profitability in the near term, the Directors have undertaken an impairment review regarding the value of the Investments at 31 December, 2016 and have taken the view that the value of this asset has been impaired and have accordingly written this asset off in its entirety.

 

4.      Segment reporting

Operating segments

The Group operates under three segments, namely, Sports, Entertainment and Media.

 

Parallel Sports

Parallel Sports operates professional golf tournaments around the world sanctioned by The European Tour, The Asian Tour and The Korean LPGA with a focus in Asia. 

 

Parallel Media

The media segment had focused on smart media and is currently being reviewed by the Directors of the Company.

 

Parallel Entertainment

The entertainment division is focused on building on our relationships with AIA and promoting new music related events.

Tournament rights

Tournament rights are the rights to promote European Tour golf events acquired in a market transaction in September 2006. These assets are carried at cost less amortisation. Amortisation is calculated to write off the assets over their expected useful life of 20 years.

The Directors have undertaken an impairment review regarding the value of the Tournament rights.  As no new tournament was held in 2016 and the Directors have no reasonable certainty that a golf tournament will be held in the Far East in 2017, as at 31 December 2016, whilst the Group still retains the right to promote European Tour golf events, the Directors have taken the view that the value of this intangible asset has been impaired and have accordingly written the value of this asset down by £1,321K to a carrying value of £1K.

 

Development costs

Development costs are incurred in the creation of new media assets and propositions, the benefits of which are expected to be derived in future years. Development costs are written-off over the expected useful life of the asset. The development assets are assessed for impairment when indicators of impairment occur.

The investment in a subsidiary (the "Investments") originally related to the 25% equity purchase of Parallel Media Group Asia PTE Ltd ("PMGA") in 2013. The consideration paid at that time to Urban Strategic PTE Ltd, a Company controlled by one of the Group's Non Executive Directors Mr R Murugason, was 44,761 ordinary shares of 0.01p each (1,074,283 ordinary shares of 2.2p each, prior to the share consolidation in December 2013) in the Group at 120p, being in aggregate £53,713.

 

As a result of PMGA's trading losses in recent years and the balance sheet deficit at 31 December 2016 and there being no reasonable certainty of PMGA returning to profitability in the near term, the Directors have undertaken an impairment review regarding the value of the Investments at 31 December 2016 and have taken the view that the value of this asset has been impaired and have accordingly written this asset off in its entirety.

 

A list of subsidiary companies is included in Note 30.

 

Parallel Media Group Asia has a 50% interest in Parallel Smart Media Asia Alpha Entertainments Private Limited and holds 50% of the 200 ordinary shares at 1SGD each. The Company is incorporated in Singapore and did not trade during 2016 or 2015.

 

Parallel Media Group has a joint venture with Parallel Media Italia s.r.l. a Company incorporated in Italy and holds 51% of the ordinary share capital of EUR10,000. The Company did not trade in 2016 or 2015.

 

Parallel Media Group has a joint venture with Causeway Trophy PTE Ltd a Company incorporated in Singapore and holds 50% of the ordinary share capital of SGD100.

At the 31 December 2016, amounts payable to Lloyds Bank totalled £251K (of which £85K is included in current liabilities and £166K is included in non-current liabilities above). The loan was restructured in 2015 and from that date is now repayable in 48 consecutive monthly instalments representing principal and interest. The loan carries interest payable at 4% over base rate. The loan may be repaid early at the discretion of the Group. The loan is secured by a personal guarantee provided by David Ciclitira.

 

As set out more fully in note 32 to these accounts, this loan was fully repaid in June 2017 in the sum of £213,064 by David Ciclitira.

 

23. Financial instruments

 

The Group and Company operations expose them to a number of financial risks. The Directors aim to protect the Group and Company against the potential adverse effects of these financial risks.

 

Financial assets

Financial assets include cash and trade and other receivables (excluding prepayments) which are classified as "loans and receivables"; and equity investments which are classified as "available for sale" (excluding investments in subsidiaries and joint ventures). These amounts, where appropriate, have been shown separately on the face of the statement of financial position. Funds not immediately required for the Group and Company's operations are invested in bank deposits.  It is the Directors' opinion that the carrying values of cash, trade receivables and investments approximate to their fair values.

 

Financial liabilities

Financial Liabilities include current and non-current borrowings, convertible loans and trade and other payables (excluding: tax & social security, and deferred income). All amounts are carried at amortised cost. These amounts have been disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. It is the Directors' opinion that the carrying values of financial liabilities approximate to their fair-value.

 

Liquidity risk

The Group and Company's surplus liquid resources were maintained on short-term interest bearing deposits. The Group and Company plans to continue to meet operating and other loan commitments as they fall due. Liquidity risk is managed through cash flow forecasts and regular planning.

Group trade and other receivables excluding prepayments as at 31 December 2016 were £23K, all of which were assets not impaired but past due. PMG have contra supply arrangements which are expected to enable the recovery of the unimpaired but past due amounts and/or consider these collectable. Impaired trade receivables for the year ended 31 December 2016 represent specifically identified amounts which are past due and for which collection is deemed unlikely. All remaining trade and other receivables as at 31 December 2016 are collected and/or collectable and are therefore considered of low credit risk. All bank deposits are maintained in the UK and are considered to be low credit risk.

 

Market risk

(a)   Interest rate risk

Bank loans totalling £251K are at variable interest rates and are therefore exposed to interest rate fluctuations.  Sensitivity: For each +/- 1% change in the bank rate, the profit for the year will be positively or negatively impacted by £2,509 (2015: £3,163).

 

(b)   Foreign currency risk

Although the Company is based in the UK, a significant part of the Group's and Company's operations are overseas, primarily in Asia, and the operating or functional currency of a large part of the Asian business is in US Dollars or Euros.  As a result, the Company's consolidated Sterling accounts can be affected by movements in the US Dollar/Sterling and the Euro/Sterling exchange rates. 

 

The foreign assets and liabilities of the Group and Company are closely matched as at 31 December 2016.  The table below sets out the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for the Group in their presentational currency (i.e. Sterling) and a total impact for each 10% fluctuation in exchange rates.  Based on the carrying amounts of foreign assets and liabilities  as at 31 December 2016, for each 10% fluctuation in exchange rates, net assets are expected to be impacted by +/- £54K (2015: £43K).

24. Deferred taxation

 

The actual and potential liability to deferred tax is £Nil (2015: - £Nil) due to the availability of UK tax losses, subject to agreement with the HM Revenue and Customs, there is an estimated deferred tax asset of £4,282K (2015: £3,952K). This is not recognised as there is insufficient evidence of future profits against which these losses could be utilised.

 

There were no deductible temporary differences or unused tax credits at either 31 December 2016 or 31 December 2015. There were no amounts of deferred tax recognised in the Income Statement for either the year ended 31 December 2016 or for the year ended 31 December 2015.

(i)           Deferred B shares

The Deferred Shares do not entitle their holders to receive any dividend or other distribution, they do not entitle their holders to receive notice of or to attend, speak or vote at any General Meeting of the Company, and they do not entitle their holders on a return of assets on a winding-up of the Company or otherwise only to the repayment of the capital paid up on such Deferred Shares and only after repayment of the capital paid up on each Ordinary Share in the capital of the Company and the payment of a further £100,000 on each such Ordinary Share (£1,000,000 in the case of each deferred B share).

 

(ii)          New Deferred shares

Upon consolidation of the shares in 2013 each ordinary share of 52.8p was subdivided and converted into one New Ordinary Share of 1p and one New Deferred share of 51.8p each. The new Deferred Shares share the same rights as the existing Deferred B shares.
