NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED INTERIM REPORT

FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2017

 

1.    BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

The interim financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis and in accordance with the recognition and measurement principles of International Financial Reporting Standards adopted for use in the European Union ("IFRS").

 

The interim financial statements for the period ended 31 December 2018 have not been audited and do not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. 

 

This Interim Financial Report was approved by the Board of Directors on 27thMarch 2019.

 

Statement of compliance

 

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard ('IAS') 34 - Interim Financial Reporting as adopted by the European Union. Accordingly the interim financial statements do not include all of the information or disclosures required in the annual financial statements. The accounting policies that the Company has applied in the preparation of these interim financial statements are consistent with the policies described in the Company's latest annual financial statements, being the accounts for the period to 30 June 2018.

 

Going concern

 

The Company reported a loss for the 6 month period ended 31 December 2018 of £53,146 (period ended 31 December 2017: £50,696). The Directors' have considered the appropriateness of the going concern basis and note that as at the balance sheet date the Company has significant cash balances of £1.5 million which is sufficient to cover the anticipated on-going operating costs of the Company for a period of at least 12 months from the date that the interim financial statements will be approved. Accordingly, the Directors' consider that the going concern basis of preparation remains appropriate.

 

 

2.    TURNOVER AND SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

 

All of the Company's activity and income and expenses in the period ended 31 December 2018 were incurred in the United Kingdom, and relate to Baskerville's ongoing investment activities.

 

3.   LOSS PER SHARE

 

The calculation of the basis and diluted earnings per share is based on the following data:
