   This period has seen further progress of the cost reduction exercise 
combined with year-on-year growth in the sales for the same H1 period of 
the OnSuite products (i.e. OnSite, OnGuard and OnSide). The team is now 
in place to take the revenue generating sections of the business forward 
to create positive value. 
   In December 2018, STM Security UK Ltd signed a contract for OnGuard Plus 
(OnGuard incorporating Sequestrum), which provides increased visibility 
and proof of work for their man-guarding sector. This was followed in 
January 2019 with the launch of OnSite (incorporating Sequestrum, the 
Company's proprietary distributed ledger technology), an inspection and 
auditing tool that utilises blockchain to provide immutable records and 
proof of work for digital inspections. The first such contract was 
signed in January 2019 with Firedoor Guardian Ltd for use in their fire 
door inspection service. The value of this contract proved that the 
market will pay for 'best in class' products. 
   As previously announced, we have also seen an increasing number of 
contracts being signed following successful proof of concept agreements. 
The Company has continued to target the football sector with its OnSide 
product and has signed a number of contracts as well as continuing to 
carry out proof of concept agreements with new clubs. In January 2019, 
the first non-football proof of concept agreement for OnSide was signed 
with the Harlequins Foundation the community arm of Harlequins Rugby, 
taking the product into the Rugby sector, and post year-end agreed a 
contract with a Charity organisation that has no link to football or 
sport in general. 
   In addition, the Company has integrated Sequestrum, Catenae's 
distributed ledger technology (blockchain), into its core product suite, 
providing clients with the ability to store critical and regulatory 
reports in an immutable form within the Sequestrum repository, providing 
auditable proof of both the existence of the report as well as its 
original content. 
   Sales Team 
   Post period end, in May 2019, the Board announced the appointment of a 
Head of Sales. One of his first actions has been the appointment of a 
leading marketing partner to engage targeted organisations focused upon 
the core sectors for the OnSuite products. Although in its early stages, 
we are already seeing an increase in pipeline activity and appointments 
with potential new customers. 
   Trust in Media Joint Venture 
   As announceed on 26 March 2018,  the Company entered into a Joint 
Venture ("JV") with Martin Heath and that JV would trade as Trust in 
Media Ltd. The board has now taken steps to place Trust in Media Ltd 
into liquidation as that venture has not performed as expected. The 
purpose of the JV was to produce payment processing, copyright and 
intellectual property solutions, initially within the Media industry, 
utilising a combination of private and public blockchain technologies 
including Catenae's Sequestrum. 
   The Board has continued to review the expenditure of the business to 
ensure that the appropriate resources are in place to allow the Company 
to focus on marketing and selling the products that are now developed. 
In addition, the Board has continued to manage the balance sheet with 
net liabilities reduced to GBP399,980 (30 Sept 2018: GBP891,929). 
   During the period, the Company raised funds through the issue of shares 
to support the development of the business. The Company raised 
GBP995,000 cash and settled GBP95,055 of services through the issue of 
shares. The Company continues to carefully manage its working capital 
position and is currently considering a number of funding opportunities. 
Further announcements will be made in due course. 
   The board is also looking to further strengthen its capabilities and 
expects to announce changes in due course. 
   The Company is now in a position where it is taking advantage of the 
existing product suite and is seeing growth in terms of potential 
pipeline and converted sales. The Company continues to look at 
opportunities that enable it to expand its reach into new sectors and to 
significantly increase its growth.

   1.                   General information 
   The principal activity of Catenae Innovation Plc ("Catenae" or "the 
Company") is the provision of digital media and technology. 
   Catenae is incorporated in the United Kingdom with registration number 
4689130. Catenae is domiciled in the United Kingdom and has its 
registered office at 27 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AX, and this 
is its principal place of business for the Company is 199 Bishopsgate, 
   EC2M 3TY. 
   Catenae's shares are quoted on the AIM market of the London Stock 
   Catenae's financial statements are presented in Pounds Sterling (GBP). 
   This financial information has been approved for issue by the Board of 
Directors on 27 June 2019. 
   2.                   Basis of preparation 
   The financial information in the half yearly report has been prepared 
using the recognition and measurement principles of International 
Accounting Standards, International Financial Reporting Standards and 
Interpretations adopted for use in the European Union (collectively 
Adopted IFRSs). The principal accounting policies used in preparing the 
half yearly report are those the Company expects to apply in its 
financial statements for the year ending 30 September 2019 and are 
unchanged from those disclosed in the Directors' Report and financial 
statements for the year ended 30 September 2018. 
   The financial information for the six months ended 31 March 2019 and the 
six months ended 31 March 2018 is unaudited and does not constitute the 
Company's statutory financial statements for those periods. The 
comparative financial information for the full year ended 30 September 
2018 has, however, been derived from the audited statutory financial 
statements for that period. A copy of those statutory financial 
statements has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. 
   While the financial figures included in this half-yearly report have 
been computed in accordance with IFRSs applicable to interim periods, 
this half-yearly report does not contain sufficient information to 
constitute an interim financial report as that term is defined in IAS 
   Going concern 
   As stated in the accounts for the year to 30 September 2018, the future 
business model of the Company is based around the generation of 
sustainable revenues and profits through strategic partnerships and 
internal projects. As described in the Chief Executive's statement, 
progress has been and continues to be made to develop the Company's 
activities and associated revenues. However, as also noted in the 30 
September 2018 accounts, the Company needs to raise further funds from 
the placing of shares or through other means, whilst the revenues and 
profits from these solutions are fully developed. 
   During the period the Company has raised funds of GBP995,000 through the 
issuing of shares for cash and settled GBP95,055 of services through the 
issue of shares. 
   In line with the plans and projections prepared by the Board, the 
Company's activities continue to build, however in accordance with those 
plans, in the short term the Company needs to continue to raise funds 
from a combination of trading and placement of shares to fund its 
   3.                   Loss per share 
   The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the loss 
attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the average weighted 
number of shares in issue during the period. The calculation of diluted 
loss per share is based on the basic loss per share, adjusted to allow 
for the issue of shares and the post tax effect of dividends and 
interest, on the assumed conversion of all other dilutive options and 
other potential ordinary shares. 
   There were 162,702,116 share options and 110,931,460 share warrants 
outstanding at 31 March 2019 (2018: 163,213,116 and 385,098,130), 
however the figures have not been adjusted to reflect conversion of 
these share options as the effects would be anti-dilutive. 
                        Weighted                                               Weighted
