VERTU CAPITAL LIMITED

 

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2017

 

I have pleasure in presenting the condensed financial statements of Vertu Capital Limited (the "Company" or "Vertu") for the period from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017.

 

During the financial period, the Company reported a net loss of £58,362 (0.06p per share). As at 30 June 2017, the Company had cash in bank balance of £509,677.

 

As reported earlier in 2016, the Company had entered into a non-binding letter of intent for the proposed acquisition of the entire issued share capital of VCB Malaysia Berhad, a company incorporated in Malaysia, for consideration of £350,000 payable in cash on completion. The proposed acquisition is conditional, inter alia, on satisfactory due diligence, shareholder approvals, execution of the transaction and subsequent re-admission of the Company to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange on completion. While discussions regarding the proposed acquisition continue with UK Listing Authority ('UKLA'), there can be no certainty that any transaction will occur. Should the proposed transaction be complete it would constitute a reverse takeover requiring compliance with the relevant provisions in the Listing Rules.

 

The Board looks forward to receiving feedback for approval from the UKLA for the said acquisition and will provide further updates to the shareholders in due course.

 

Responsibility Statement

 

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Condensed Financial Statements in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority ('DTR') and with International Accounting Standard 34 on Interim Financial Reporting (IAS 34).

The Directors confirm that, to the best of their knowledge, this condensed consolidated interim report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 as adopted by the European Union. The interim report includes a fair review of the information required by DTR 4.2.7 and DTR 4.2.8, namely:

·      an indication of important events that have occurred during the first six months and their impact on the condensed set of financial statements, and a description of the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the financial year; and

·      material related-party transactions in the first six months and any material changes in the related-party transactions described in the last annual report.
