In addition to the ongoing development of the ENGAGE platform, the Group has also built two downloadable showcase VR experiences, being the award-winning Apollo 11 VR experience and the Titanic VR experience.

Chief Executive's Review

 

The Group is pleased to report this maiden set of interim results since VR Education was admitted to AIM and to the ESM and dealings in its ordinary shares commenced on 12 March 2018.  The Group successfully raised £6.0 million before costs via an oversubscribed placing of 60,000,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 10 pence per share.

 

During the period, VR Education has successfully delivered on the operational milestones that were clearly set out at the time of the Group's IPO, namely expanding the development and marketing team, completing projects with the BBC and Oxford University and releasing Part 2 of Titanic VR. The stated milestones for H2 2018, including the commercial release of ENGAGE with full payment capabilities, the progression of business development and marketing programmes for ENGAGE Enterprise and ENGAGE Education, and the release of the Group's next VR Experience, are also all progressing to plan.

 

VR Education has a clear strategy to drive the future growth of the business.  The Group's main focus is the development and commercialisation of ENGAGE, its online virtual learning and corporate training platform, which provides an environment for creating, sharing and delivering proprietary and third-party VR content for educational and corporate training purposes.

 

The Group plans to raise brand awareness by showcasing the ENGAGE platform and its capabilities at high profile tradeshows and conferences around the world, including a number of major education conferences in 2018/2019 including GESS Dubai, one of the largest educational events held annually in the UAE and the Schools and Academies Show in Birmingham, UK.

 

ENGAGE

 

The Group has already developed a functional test release of the ENGAGE platform and expects to complete the development of the first commercial phase of ENGAGE in 2018.  During the Period, the Group has made significant progress in adding additional functionality including the web application, the user account system, and a new avatar system among other major updates.

 

In June 2018, the Group successfully recorded ten lectures with a range of senior professors from Oxford University.  These are currently in production and will be released in Q4 2018 alongside the full commercial release of ENGAGE as a marketing tool to attract additional users to the platform.

 

Showcase experiences

 

In addition to developing ENGAGE, the Group creates showcase experiences not only to generate revenue but to also build up the Group's VR asset base, which can be reused by external educators on the ENGAGE platform whilst improving the Group's reputation and attracting developer talent.

 

At the end of the Period, the Group had built two downloadable showcase VR experiences, being the award-winning Apollo 11 VR experience and an early access version of the Group's Titanic VR experience.

 

Apollo 11 VR continued to sell well during the interim period from 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2018 with increased revenue expected in H2 2018 with the upcoming release of Apollo 11 HD VR due for release in early Q4 2018.  To 30 June 2018, Apollo 11 VR has been downloaded a total of 130,000 times.

 

Current trading and outlook

Since the Period end, VR Education has continued to make solid progress.

 

On 30 July 2018, the Group released a major update of ENGAGE Alpha with significantly increased functionality. This introduced the web application, the user account system, and a new avatar system among other major updates. This is a significant step towards full commercial release in Q4 2018.

 

The full version of Titanic VR was released on 16 August 2018 on Steam and Oculus and will launch soon on the PlayStation network in Europe and USA.

 

The Group successfully completed the "1943: Berlin Blitz" experience in collaboration with BBC and was nominated for best Linear Virtual Reality experience at the Venice Film Festival in September 2018.

 

VR Education's entry to the AIM market and to the ESM is an exciting step as the Group progresses its growth strategy. The Board is focused on continued revenue growth and launching the full version of ENGAGE by the end of 2018, in line with market expectations.

Financial Review

 

Revenue for the half year is up 30% on the prior half year from €230k to €300k, driven by the continued success of the Apollo 11 VR experience, revenue from the early access version of Titanic VR and revenue from the work completed for the BBC, "1943: Berlin Blitz".  This is in line with the expectations of the Group.

 

EBITDA loss was €1.2 million compared to a loss of €0.1 million in the prior year.  This includes IPO-related legal and professional costs of €0.6 million.

 

Loss before tax, after a non-cash convertible debt conversion fair value loss of €2.6 million and associated conversion costs of €0.3 million, was a loss of €4.1 million, in line with management expectations, compared to a loss in the prior year of €0.1 million.

 

Operating cashflows after €0.2 million of capex were a net outflow of €1.3 million for the period.  The current run-rate of staff costs and other ongoing costs is approximately €0.3 million per month.

 

At 30 June 2018, the Group has a strong cash position with a net cash position of €4.9 million.

Notes to the Interim Report

 

1. Basis of Preparation

 

The consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the recognition and measurement principles of International Financial Reporting Standards as endorsed by the European Union ("IFRS") and expected to be effective at the year-end of 31 December 2018.

 

The accounting policies are unchanged from the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017. The interim financial statements are unaudited and do not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006.  Statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2017, prepared in accordance with IFRS, have been filed with the Companies Registration Office.  The Auditors' Report on these accounts was unqualified, did not include any matters to which the Auditors drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and did not contain any statements under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

The consolidated interim financial statements are for the 6 months to 30 June 2018.

 

The interim consolidated financial information does not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017, which were prepared in accordance with IFRS's as adopted by the European Union.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

New standards, interpretations and amendments adopted by the Company

 

The following standards and amendments have been adopted for the first time in these financial statements:

 

•              IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

•              IAS 7 Disclosure Initiative (amendments)

•              IAS 12 Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets for Unrealised Losses (amendments)

•              IFRS 9 - Financial Instruments

 

The Company has adopted IFRS 15 for the current year and applied it retrospectively for the preceding financial year in accordance with IFRS 15 C3(b) however no material adjustments were identified between the requirements of IFRS 15 and the methods applied by the Company in the application of IAS 18.  There was no impact on the Company financial statements in respect of IAS 7, IAS 12 or IFRS 9.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Research costs are expensed as they are incurred. Development costs that are directly attributable to the design and testing of identifiable and unique commercial software controlled by the Company are recognised as intangible assets when the following criteria are met:

 

-              it is technically feasible to complete the software product so that it will be available for use and sale;

-              management intends to complete the software product and use or sell it;

-              there is an ability to use or sell the software product;

-              it can be demonstrated how the software product will generate future economic benefits;

-              adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and use or

-              sell the software product are available; and

-              the expenditure attributable to the software product during its development can be reliably

-              measured.

 

Directly attributable costs that are capitalised as part of the software product include the software development employee costs and subcontracted development costs.

 

Other development expenditure that does not meet these criteria is recognised as an expense as incurred.

 

Development costs previously recognised as an expense are not recognised as an asset in a subsequent period.

 

Computer software development costs recognised as assets are amortised over their estimated useful lives, which do not exceed 3 years and commences after the development is complete and the asset is available for use.  Intangible assets are amortised over their estimated useful lives based on the pattern of consumption of the underlying economic benefits.  Amortisation is included in cost of sales.

An impairment review was carried out at the balance sheet date. No impairment arose.

 

 

 

4. Share Based Payments

 

Share-based payment schemes with employees

 

During the period ended 30 June 2018, VR Education Holdings plc introduced a share-based payment scheme for employee remuneration ("the 2018 Scheme") to replace the scheme previously in operation within Immersive VR Education Limited ("the 2016 Scheme").  The 2018 Scheme and the 2016 schemes are classified equity settled share based payment plans.  Recipients under the scheme are awarded options over ordinary shares of the Company.

 

On the 12 March 2018, the options under the 2016 Scheme were cancelled as part of the Capital Restructure and Listing process and replaced with options under the 2018 Scheme under the equivalent terms and conditions as the 2016 scheme, and a stock split which gave rise to the issue of 740 shares for every 1 share held.  The options granted under the 2016 Scheme had vesting periods of up to 36 months.  The replacement of the options did not give rise to any additional income statement expense in 2018.

 

There were 311,108 employee options granted during 2018 at an exercise price of €0.135 per share and these vest subject to continued service by the employee over a period of 3 years. Options expire at the end of a period of 7 years from the Grant Date or on the date on which the option holder ceases to be an employee.

 

Share-based payment expense with Director

 

On 12 March 2018, VR Education Holdings plc granted options to purchase 1m ordinary shares to Richard Cooper, the Chairman of the Company.  The options vest if the market capitalisation of the Company equals 2.5 times the market capitalisation on admission to listing for a consecutive period of 30 days. Except in the event of a change in control (see below) the options, which are exercisable at a price of £0.0001, cannot be exercised for a period of two years and expire on 12 March 2023.  The market capitalisation requirement is a "market condition" under IFRS 2 and the valuation of the option, which amounted to €0.668, takes this market condition into account.

 

In the event of a change in control, in the two years after admission to listing, the options are exercisable at prices ranging from £0.0001 to £0.10.  The change in control scenarios gave rise to option values of €0.018 -€0.112.
