I have pleasure in presenting the financial statements of Fragrant Prosperity Holdings Limited (the "Company" or "FPP") for the financial year ended 31 March 2020.

During the financial year, the Company reported a net loss of GBP191,778 (2019: GBP232,105) which represents ongoing administrative expenses as well as any costs incurred in identifying potential transactions. As at 31 March 2020, the Company had cash in bank balance of GBP127,710 (2019: GBP5,574).

The Board continued to review a number of potential acquisition opportunities across the sector but none of which has met the necessary criteria for selection.

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020

Directors' report

The Directors present their report together with the audited financial statements, for the financial year ended 31 March 2020.

The Company was incorporated on 28 January 2016 in the British Virgin Islands, as a company limited by shares under the BVI Business Companies Act, 2004. The registered office of the Company is at Vistra Corporate Services Centre, Wickhams Cay II, Road Town, Tortola, VG1110, British Virgin Islands.

Its issued share capital, consisting of Ordinary Shares, are currently admitted to a Standard Listing on the Official List in accordance with Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities.

On the 12 December 2017 the company changed its name from Vale International Group Ltd to Fragrant Prosperity Holdings Ltd.

The Company's nature of operations is to act as a special purpose acquisition company.

Results and dividends

The results for the year are set out in the Statement of Comprehensive Income on page 10. The Directors do not recommend the payment of a dividend on the ordinary shares.

Company objective and future developments

The Company was formed to undertake an acquisition of a target company or business. The Company does not have any specific acquisition under consideration and does not expect to engage in substantive negotiations with any target company or business in the immediate future. The Directors believe that their network, and the Company's cash resources and profile following Admission, mean that the Company will target an Acquisition where the target company has a value of up to GBP100 million. The Company expects that consideration for the Acquisition will primarily be satisfied by issue of new Shares to a vendor (or vendors), but that some cash may also be payable by the Company. Any funds not used in connection with the Acquisition will be used for future acquisitions, internal or external growth and expansion, and working capital in relation to the acquired company or business.

Following completion of the Acquisition, the objective of the Company will be to operate the acquired business and implement an operating strategy with a view to generating value for its Shareholders through operational improvements as well as potentially through additional complementary acquisitions following the Acquisition. Following the Acquisition, the Company intends to seek re-admission of the enlarged group to listing on the Official List and trading on the London Stock Exchange or admission to another stock exchange.

FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020 (continued)

The Company's efforts in identifying a prospective target company or business will not be limited to a

particular industry or geographic region. However, given the experience of the Directors, the Company expects to focus on acquiring a company or business in the technology sector (in particular focussing on technology and/or intellectual property that is used in the financial services industry) with either all or a substantial portion of its operations in Europe or Asia. The Directors' initial search will focus on businesses based in or with operations in Hong Kong, Malaysia, or the United Kingdom.

Principal risks and uncertainties

Currently the principal risks relate to the completion of the Acquisition, and whether, if unsuccessful, the Company could find sufficient suitable investments to ensure compliance with the requirements of its continued listing on the standard market.

As a suitable acquisition has not been identified, there is also a risk that the company may not be a going concern, see note 2 to the financial statements. In addition, an explanation of the Company's financial risk management objectives, policies and strategies is set out in note 9.

Effect of Covid 19

During the first half of the calendar year 2020, the widely reported Covid 19 pandemic effected business and economies throughout the globe. Given the nature of operations of the Company the effect has been minimal to date, although some added headwinds might be experienced resulting in a longer period of time to identify and execute a chosen acquisition of a business due to the overall slowdown in the global economy and travel restrictions.

Key events

At the year end the Company had cash of approximately GBP127,710 and continues to keep administrative costs to a minimum so that the majority of funds can be dedicated to the review of and potentially investment in, suitable projects. The company is likely to receive additional funds in order to continue its activities.

The Directors of the Company during the year were:

Robin Andrew Carrington Rice (resigned 13 December 2019)

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020 (continued)

Substantial shareholders

The Company has been notified of the following interests of 3 per cent or more in its issued share capital as at 14 August 2020.

 
                               Number of Ordinary       % of

  Amigo Corporation                2,963,095             5.7% 
  Jim Nominees Limited             1,960,440             3.8% 
 
 

Capital and returns management

The Directors believe that, following an acquisition, further equity capital raisings may be required by the Company for working capital purposes as the Company pursues its objectives. The amount of any such additional equity to be raised, which could be substantial, will depend on the nature of the acquisition opportunities which arise and the form of consideration the Company uses to make the acquisition and cannot be determined at this time.

The Company expects that any returns for Shareholders would derive primarily from capital appreciation of the Ordinary Shares and any dividends paid pursuant to the Company's dividend policy.

Dividend policy

The Company is primarily seeking to achieve capital growth for its Shareholders.

It is the Board's intention during the current phase of the Company's development to retain future distributable profits from the business, to the extent any are generated. As a holding company, the Company will be dependent on dividends paid to it by its subsidiaries.

The Board does not anticipate declaring any dividends in the foreseeable future but may recommend dividends at some future date after the completion of the Acquisition and depending upon the generation of sustainable profits and the Company's financial position.

The Board can give no assurance that it will pay any dividends in the future, nor, if a dividend is paid, what the amount of such dividend will be.

The Company will only pay dividends to the extent that to do so is in accordance with all applicable laws.

Corporate governance

As a company with a Standard Listing, the Company is not required to comply with the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code. Although the Company does not comply with the UK Corporate Governance Code, the Company intends to adopt corporate governance procedures as are appropriate for the size and nature of the Company and the size and composition of the Board. These corporate

FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020 (continued)

governance procedures have been selected with due regard to the provision of the UK Corporate Governance Code insofar as is appropriate. A description of these procedure is set out below:

-- until an Acquisition is made, the Company will not have nominations, remuneration, audit or risk committees. The Board as a whole will instead review its size, structure and composition, the scale and structure of the Directors' fees (taking into account the interests of Shareholders and the performance of the Company), take responsibility for the appointment of auditors and payment of their audit fee, monitor and review the integrity of the Company's financial statements and take responsibility for any formal announcements on the Company's financial performance. Following the Acquisition, the Board intends to put in place nomination, remuneration, audit and risk committees;

-- the Board has adopted a share dealing code that complies with the requirements of the Market Abuse Regulations. All persons discharging management responsibilities shall comply with the share dealing code since the date of Admission; and

-- Following the Acquisition and subject to eligibility, the Directors may, in future, seek to transfer the Company from a Standard Listing to either a Premium Listing or other appropriate listing venue, based on the track record of the company or business it acquires, subject to fulfilling the relevant eligibility criteria at the time. However, in addition to or in lieu of a Premium Listing, the Company may determine to seek a listing on another stock exchange. Following such a Premium Listing, the Company would comply with the continuing obligations contained within the Listing Rules and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules in the same manner as any other company with a Premium Listing.

The Company has not chosen to apply a particular corporate governance code, as the directors consider that the most widely recognised codes are not appropriate for companies with limited board resources.

The Directors are responsible for internal control in the Company and for reviewing its effectiveness. Due to the size of the Company, all key decisions are made by the Board in full. The Directors have reviewed the effectiveness of the Company's systems during the period under review and consider that there have been no material losses, contingencies or uncertainties due to the weakness in the controls. The Board will be responsible for taking all proper and reasonable steps to ensure compliance with the Model Code by the Directors.

Emissions, Environmental & Social matters

The Company currently is not responsible for any emissions other than indirectly through travel for undertaking due diligence on target businesses. It is therefore not practical to quantify the total emissions of the Company. Likewise as the nature of the Company is an acquisition company, it is the opinion of the Directors that it has no direct social, community and human rights issues are environmental matters on which it should disclose information. Presently all of the Directors of the Company are male, the Directors are actively seeking to balance the board with some female representation although this would likely occur upon a change in the board composition upon the completion of an acquisition.

Responsibility Statement

The directors are responsible for preparing the annual report and the non-statutory financial statements. The directors are required to prepare financial statements for the Company in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union.

FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020 (continued)

International Accounting Standard 1 requires that financial statements present fairly for each financial period the Company's financial position, financial performance and cash flows. This requires the faithful representation of transactions, other events and conditions in accordance with the definitions and recognition criteria for the assets, liabilities, income and expenses set out in the International Accounting Standards Board's "Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements". In virtually all circumstances, a fair representation will be achieved by compliance with all IFRS as adopted by the European Union. Directors are also required to:

   -     select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently; 

- present information, including accounting policies, in a manner that provides relevant, reliable, comparable and understandable information; and

- provide additional disclosures when compliance with the specific requirements in IFRS as adopted by the European Union is insufficient to enable users to understand the impact of particular transactions, other events and conditions on the Company's financial position and financial performance.

The directors are responsible for keeping proper accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time, the financial position of the Company. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

The maintenance and integrity of the Fragrant Prosperity Holdings Ltd website ( http://fragrantprosperity.com ) is the responsibility of the Directors; work carried out by the auditors does not involve the consideration of these matters and, accordingly, the auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred in the accounts since they were initially presented on the website.

Legislation in the British Virgin Islands governing the preparation and dissemination of the financial statements and the other information included in annual reports may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Financial Statements in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority ('DTR') and with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union.

The directors confirm, to the best of their knowledge that:

-- the financial statements, prepared in accordance with the relevant financial reporting framework, give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit or loss of the Company; and

-- the Chairman's Statement and Directors' Report include a fair review of the development and performance of the business and the financial position of the Company, together with a description of the principal risks and uncertainties that it faces.

Auditors and disclosure of information

The directors confirm that:

-- there is no relevant audit information of which the Company's non-statutory auditor is unaware; and

FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

DIRECTORS' REPORT

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEARED 31 MARCH 2020 (continued)

-- each Director has taken all the necessary steps he ought to have taken as a Director in order to make himself aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the Company's non-statutory auditor is aware of that information.

Events after the reporting date

Subsequent to the year end the company has raised additional capital to ensure it has sufficient working capital to proceed with the necessary steps to realign itself with its strategy to identify a target business to acquire.

Events after the reporting date have been disclosed in note 13 to the financial statements.

This responsibility statement was approved by the Board of Directors on 30 July 2020 and is signed on its behalf by;

Craig Marshak

Director

INDEPENT AUDITOR'S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

Qualified Opinion

We have audited the financial statements of Fragrant Prosperity Holdings Limited (the 'Company') for the year ended 31 March 2020 which comprise the statement of comprehensive income, statement of financial position, statement of changes in equity, statement of cash flows and the related notes, including a summary of significant accounting policies. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in the preparation of the financial statements is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

In our opinion, except for the possible effects of the corresponding figures of the matter described in the basis for qualified opinion section of our report, the financial statements:

-- give a true and fair view of the state of the Company's affairs as at 31 March 2020 and of its loss for the year then ended;

   --    have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union; 

Basis for qualified opinion

For the year ended 31 March 2019, the previous auditors issued a disclaimer of opinion as a result of not being provided with a complete set of accounting records for the Company. Supporting evidence could not be obtained for approximately 50% of the expenditure of the Company and the auditors were unable to satisfy themselves by alternative means with regards to expenditure of GBP113,775 included in administrative expenses and other operating expenses of GBP232,105 reported in the statement of comprehensive income. Our opinion on the current period's financial statements is modified because of the possible effect of this matter on the comparability of the current period's figures and the corresponding figures.

We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) (ISAs (UK)) and applicable law. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in the UK, including the FRC's Ethical Standard as applied to listed public interest entities, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion.

INDEPENT AUDITOR'S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

Material uncertainty relating to going concern

In forming our opinion on the financial statements, which is not modified, we have considered the adequacy of the disclosure made in note 2 to the financial statements concerning the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The conditions described in note 2 indicate the existence of material uncertainties which may cast significant doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include the adjustments that would result if the Company was unable to continue as a going concern.

Key audit matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance on our audit of the financial statements of the current period and include the most significant assessed risks of material misstatement (whether or not due to fraud) we identified, including those which had the greatest effect on the overall audit strategy, the allocation of resources in the audit; and directing the efforts of the engagement team. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

INDEPENT AUDITOR'S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

Our application of materiality

We define materiality as the magnitude of misstatement in the financial statements that makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable person would be charged or influenced. We use materiality both in planning and in the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our work.

We determine materiality for the Company to be GBP10,133 and this financial benchmark, which has been used throughout the audit, was determined by way of a standard formula being applied to key financial results and balances presented in the financial statements. Where considered relevant the materiality is adjusted to suit the specific risk profile of the Company.

Performance materiality is the application of materiality at the individual account or balance level set at an amount to reduce to an appropriately low level the probability that the aggregate of uncorrected and undetected misstatements exceeds materiality. Performance materiality was set at 75% of the above materiality levels. We agreed with the board that we would report to the committee all individual audit differences identified during the course of our audit in excess of GBP507 (5% materiality). We also agreed to report differences below these thresholds that, in our view warranted reporting on qualitative grounds.

An overview of the scope of our audit

Our audit was scoped by obtaining an understanding of the Company and its environment, including the system of internal control, and assessing the risks of material misstatement in the financial statements. The audit work is conducted centrally by one audit team, led by the Senior Statutory Auditor.

Other Information

The other information comprises the information included in the annual report other than the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon. The directors are responsible for the other information contained within the annual report. Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and, except to the extent otherwise explicitly stated in our report, we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the course of the audit, or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If we identify such material inconsistencies or apparent material misstatements, we are required to determine whether this gives rise to a material misstatement in the financial statements themselves. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact.

In this context, matters that we are specifically required to report to you as uncorrected material misstatements of the other information include where we conclude that:

-- Fair, balanced and understandable - the statement given by the directors that they consider the annual report and financial statements taken as a whole is fair, balanced and understandable and provides the information necessary for shareholders to assess the Company's position and performance, business model and strategy, is materially inconsistent with our knowledge obtained in the audit; or

We have nothing to report in respect of these matters.

INDEPENT AUDITOR'S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF FRAGRANT PROSPERITY HOLDINGS LTD

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

In the light of the knowledge and understanding of Company and its environment obtained in the course of the audit, we have not identified material misstatements in the chairman's statement or the directors' report.

Responsibilities of directors

As explained more fully in the directors' responsibilities statement set out on page 7, the directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view, and for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements, the directors are responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the directors either intend to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (UK) will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

A further description of our responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements is located on the Financial Reporting Council's website at https://www.frc.org.uk/auditorsresponsibilities. This description forms part of our auditor's report.

Explanation as to what extent the audit was considered capable of detecting irregularities, including fraud

Irregularities, including fraud, are instances of non-compliance with laws and regulations. We design procedures in line with our responsibilities, outlined above, to detect material misstatements in respect of irregularities, including fraud. Our approach was as follows:

-- We obtained an understanding of the legal and regulatory frameworks that are applicable to the Coup and determined the most significant are those that relate to the reporting framework (IFRS) and the relevant tax compliance regulations in the jurisdictions in which the Company operates.

-- We understood how the Company is complying with those frameworks by making enquiries of management, the Company Secretary, and those responsible for legal and compliance procedures. We corroborated our enquiries through our review of board minutes, papers provided to the board, discussion with the board and any correspondence received from regulatory bodies.

-- We assessed the susceptibility of the Company's financial statements to material misstatement, including how fraud might occur by enquiring with management and the board during the planning and execution phase of our audit. We considered the programs and controls that the Company has established to address risks identified, or that otherwise prevent, deter and detect fraud and how senior management monitors those programs and controls. Where the risk was considered to be higher, we performed audit procedures to

   1.   GENERAL INFORMATION 

The Company was incorporated in the British Virgin Islands on 28 January 2016 as an exempted company with limited liability.

The Company's Ordinary shares are currently admitted to a standard listing on the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange.

On the 12 December 2017 the company changed its name from Vale International Group Ltd to Fragrant Prosperity Holdings Ltd.

The Company's nature of operations is to act as a special purpose acquisition company.

   2.   ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

The Board has reviewed the accounting policies set out below and considers them to be the most appropriate to the Company's business activities.

Basis of preparation

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union and IFRIC interpretations applicable to companies reporting under IFRS. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified for financial assets carried at fair value.

The financial information of the Company is presented in British Pound Sterling ("GBP").

Standards and interpretations issued but not yet applied

At the date of authorisation of this financial information, the Directors have reviewed the Standards in issue by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") and IFRIC, which are effective for accounting periods beginning on or after the stated effective date. In their view, none of these standards would have a material impact on the financial reporting of the Company.

Going concern

Until such time as the Company makes a significant investment it will meet its day to day working capital requirements from its existing cash reserves and by raising new equity finance.

In the year ended 31 March 2020 the Company recorded a loss after tax of GBP191,778 (2019: GBP232,105) and a net cash outflow from operating activities of GBP147,653 (2019: GBP221,766).

The directors have prepared cash flow forecasts covering a period of at least 12 months from the date of approval of the financial statements which assume that no significant investment activity is undertaken unless sufficient funding is in place.

The Company had cash of GBP127,710 at 31 March 2020. Although the level of cash outgoings prior to making an investment is expected to be modest, the cash flow forecasts indicate that the Company needs to raise additional funds in the coming months.

Although the directors believe that the Company will be successful in raising the funds required there can be no guarantee of success of that fundraising.

Based on their assessment, the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources, supplemented by the additional funds to be raised, to continue as a going concern for the foreseeable future. Thus, they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing these financial statements.

The requirement to raise additional funds constitutes a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

If the Company was unable to secure sufficient funding to enable it to continue on a going concern basis then adjustments would be necessary to write down assets to their recoverable amounts and provide for additional liabilities.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers any cash on short-term deposits and other short term investments to be cash equivalents.

Taxation

The tax currently payable is based on the taxable profit for the period. Taxable profit differs from net profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other periods and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The Company's liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.

Deferred income tax is provided for using the liability method on temporary timing differences at the reporting date between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes. Deferred income tax liabilities are recognised in full for all temporary differences. Deferred income tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences carried forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which the deductible temporary differences and carry-forward of unused tax credits and unused losses can be utilised.

The carrying amount of deferred income tax assets is assessed at each reporting date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the deferred income tax asset to be utilised. Unrecognised deferred income tax assets are reassessed at each reporting date and are recognised to the extent that is probable that future taxable profits will allow the deferred income tax asset to be recovered.

Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised on the statement of financial position when the company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

Financial assets

Financial assets are classified, at initial recognition, as subsequently measured at amortised cost, fair value through other comprehensive income (OCI), and fair value through profit or loss. The classification of financial assets at initial recognition depends on the financial asset's contractual ]cash flow characteristics and the Group's business model for managing them.

The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired. Management determines the classification of its financial assets at initial recognition and re-evaluates this classification at every reporting date.

As at the reporting date, the Group did not have any financial assets subsequently measured at fair value.

Operating segments

The directors are of the opinion that the business of the Company comprises a single activity, that of an investment company. Consequently, all activities relate to this segment.

Critical accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of financial statements in compliance with IFRS as adopted for use by the European Union requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates or judgements. The directors do not consider there to be any key estimation uncertainty. In respect of critical judgements, the only key judgement is the adoption of going concern on the basis for preparing the financial statements, details of which are set out in note 2.

Share based payments

The Company operates equity-settled, share-based compensation plans, under which the entity receives services from employees as consideration for equity instruments (options) of the Company. The fair value of employee services received in exchange for the grant of share options are recognised as an expense. The total expense to be apportioned over the vesting period is determined by reference to the fair value of the options granted:

   --               including any market performance conditions; 

-- excluding the impact of any service and non-market performance vesting conditions; and

   --               including the impact of any non-vesting conditions. 

Non-market performance and service conditions are included in assumptions about the number of options that are expected to vest. The total expense is recognised over the vesting period, which is the period over which all of the specified vesting conditions are to be satisfied. At the end of each reporting period the Company revises its estimate of the number of options that are expected to vest.

It recognises the impact of the revision of original estimates, if any, in profit or loss, with a corresponding adjustment to equity.

When options are exercised, the Company issues new shares. The proceeds received net of any directly attributable transaction costs are credited to share capital (nominal value) and share premium.

The fair value of goods or services received in exchange for shares is recognised as an expense.

   3.   INCOME TAX EXPENSE 

The Company is regarded as resident for the tax purposes in British Virgin Islands.

No tax is applicable to the Company for the year ended 31 March 2020 and 2019. Consequently no deferred tax is recognised as all timing differences are permanent.

   4.   LOSS BEFORE TAXATION 

The loss before income tax is stated after charging:

LOSS PER SHARE

Basic loss per ordinary share is calculated by dividing the loss attributable to equity holders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding to assume conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares. There are currently no dilutive potential ordinary shares.

   7.   CAPITAL MANAGEMENT POLICY 

The Company's objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Company's ability to continue as a going concern in order to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital. The capital structure of the Company consists of equity attributable to equity holders of the Company, comprising issued share capital and reserves.

   8.   FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT 

The Company uses a limited number of financial instruments, comprising cash and other payables, which arise directly from operations. The Company does not trade in financial instruments.

Financial risk factors

The Company's activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: currency risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and cash ow interest rate risk. The Company's overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the Company's financial performance.

a) Currency risk

The Company does not operate internationally and its exposure to foreign exchange risk is limited to the transactions and balances that are denominated in currencies other than Pounds Sterling.

b) Credit risk

The Company does not have any major concentrations of credit risk related to any individual customer or counterparty. Credit risk arises from cash and cash equivalents and deposits with banks and financial institutions. The Group has taken necessary steps and precautions in minimising the credit risk by lodging cash and cash equivalents only with reputable licensed banks.

c) Liquidity risk

Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and the Company ensures it has adequate resource to discharge all its liabilities. The directors have considered the liquidity risk as part of their going concern assessment. (See note 2). At the date of approval of the financial statements there was a material uncertainty in relation to liquidity risk.

d) Cash flow interest rate risk

The Company has no significant interest-bearing liabilities and assets. The Company monitors the interest rate on its interest bearing assets closely to ensure favourable rates are secured.

Fair values

Management assessed that the fair values of cash and short-term deposits, trade receivables, trade payables, bank overdrafts and other current liabilities approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.
