CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

It is a pleasure to announce the interim results for the Company which cover the six month period to 30 June 2018.

The net loss in the period was GBP135,995 (30 June 2017: (GBP187,000). The Board remains mindful of preserving shareholder funds and I'm pleased to report that as at 30 June 2018 cash balances totalled GBP773,172 (31 December 2017 GBP960,858).

During the period the Board has continued its search for a suitable acquisition but notes that the number of opportunities it has received has recently slowed down. In light of this the Board has arranged for its acquisition criteria to be circulated to a database of professional advisers and it is hopeful that this will generate an increased supply of potential opportunities over the coming months.

Whilst it is taking longer than originally anticipated to find a suitable acquisition the Board's view remains that the fintech sector is a global phenomenon that is still gathering strength and that a suitable opportunity that satisfy's the Company's investment creteria will be identified. It is therefore the intention to continue to pursue the Company's current strategy.

In the Prospetus dated 25 October 2016, the Board agreed to consult with Shareholders on the ongoing direction and activities of the Company if a suitable acquisition had not been completed within two years and as such I would like to Shareholders to write me, at the registered office of the Company, with their views by the end of October 2018.

The Company intends to announce the result of the Shareholder consultation later this year.

On behalf of the Board I thank shareholders for their continued support.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

   1.   GENERAL INFORMATION 

The Company was incorporated and registered in Jersey as a public company limited by shares on 17 June 2016 under the Companies (Jersey) Law 1991, as amended, with the name Golden Rock Global plc, and registered number 121560.

The Company's registered office is located at 11 Bath Street, St Helier, JE2 4ST, Jersey.

   2.   PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES 

The principal activity of the Company is to seek acquisition opportunities, initially focusing on the Fintech sector.

   3.   RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENT 

a) New interpretations and revised standards effective for the period ended 30 June 2018

The Company has adopted the new interpretations and revised standards effective for the year ended 31 December 2017. The adoption of these interpretations and revised standards had no material impact on the disclosures and presentation of the financial statements.

b) Standards and interpretations in issue but not yet effective

A number of new standards and amendments to existing standards have been issued, but are not effective for the period ended 30 June 2018. The Directors do not anticipate that the adoption of these revised standards and interpretations will have a significant impact on the figures included in the financial statements in the period of initial application other than the following:

Amendments to IFRS 9: Financial Instruments

This amendment confirm that when a financial liability measured at amortised cost is modified without this resulting in de-recognition, a gain or loss should be recognised immediately in profit or loss.

The gain or loss is calculated as the difference between the original contractual cash flows and the modified cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. This means that the difference cannot be spread over the remaining life of the instrument which may be a change in practice from IAS 39.

The standard is effective for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019.

The condensed interim financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2018 were approved by the Board of Directors on 17 September 2018. The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and International Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" (IAS 34) as adopted by the European Union. The accounting policies applied by the company in these condensed interim financial statements are the same as those set out in the company's Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2017. No material new standards, amendments to standards or interpretations are effective in the period ending 30 June 2018.

The condensed interim financial statements are unaudited and have not been reviewed by the auditors. The financial information for the year ended 31 December 2017 does not constitute the Company's statutory financial statements. The Company's statutory financial statements for that year have been filed with the Jersey Registrar of Companies and received an unqualified auditor's report.

The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis which assumes that the company will continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future on the grounds that the Director will continue to financially support the company until such time has the business achieves financial viability. The company financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that would be required if they were to be prepared on a basis other than the going concern basis.

The financial information is presented in Pounds Sterling (GBP), which is the Company's functional and presentational currency.

b) Foreign currency translation

The financial statements of the Company are presented in the currency of the primary environment in which the Company operates (its functional currency).

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in profit and loss.

c) Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised in the Statement of Financial Position when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instruments. Financial assets and financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value.

Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial assets and financial liabilities (other than financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss) are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition.

Transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition of financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are recognised immediately in profit or loss.

   4.   ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 

Impairment of financial assets

An assessment for impairment is undertaken when there is objective evidence that a financial asset is impaired. Impairment loss on financial assets is recognised when there is objective evidence that the Company will not be able to collect all the amounts due to it in accordance with the original terms of the receivables. The amount of the impairment loss is determined as the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows.

Financial liabilities

The Company's financial liabilities include amounts due to shareholders and other payables and accruals. Financial liabilities are recognised when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provision of the

instrument. All financial liabilities are recognised initially at their fair value, net of transaction costs, and subsequently measured at amortised cost, using the effective interest method, unless the effect of discounting would be insignificant, in which case they are stated at cost.

The Company derecognises financial liabilities when, and only when, the Company's obligations are discharged, cancelled or they expire.

d) Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents includes cash in hand, deposits held on call with banks and other short term (having maturity within 3 months) highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

e) Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares during the period plus the dilutive effect of dilutive potential ordinary shares outstanding during the year.

   5.   ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS 

Preparation of financial information in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making judgements about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

It is the Directors' view that there are no significant areas of estimation, uncertainty and critical judgements in applying accounting policies that have significant effect on the amount recognised in the financial information for the period.

   6.   FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT 

a) Categories of financial instruments

The carrying amounts and fare value of the Company's financial assets and liabilities as at the end of the reporting year are as follows:

                                             ---------------  --------------- 
 

b) Financial risk management objectives and policies.

The Company is exposed to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including interest rate risk and currency risk), credit risk and liquidity risk. The risk management policies employed by the Company to manage these risks are discussed below. The primary objectives of the financial risk management function are to establish risk limits, and then ensure that exposure to risk stays within these limits. The operational and legal risk management functions are intended to ensure proper functioning of internal policies and procedures to minimise operational and legal risks.

   i)          Interest rate risks 

All cash holdings and cash equivalents are held in accounts with variable rates.

   ii)          Currency risks 

The Company is exposed to exchange rate fluctuations as transactions are undertaken denominated in foreign currencies.

At 30 June 2018 the Company had GBP718,428 cash and cash equivalents in a Hong Kong Dollar account. At 30 June 2018, had the exchange rate between the Pound Sterling and the Hong Kong Dollar increased/decreased by 10%, the effect on the result in the period would be a gain of GBP65,000/ loss of GBP65,000.

   iii)         Credit risk 

Credit risk refers to the risk that counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. Credit allowances are made for estimated losses that have been incurred by the reporting date.

Concentrations of credit risk exist to the extent that the Company's cash balances were all held with China Merchants Bank. Per Standard & Poor's, the Short Term Foreign / Local Currency Deposit Rating is A-2.

   iv)         Liquidity risk 

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities. The Company's approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will always have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company's reputation.

The Company's financial liabilities are primarily amounts due to shareholders. The amounts are unsecured, interest-free and repayable on demand.

   7.   SEGMENT REPORTING 

IFRS 8 defines operating segments as those activities of an entity about which separate financial information is available and which are evaluated by the Board of Directors to assess performance and determine the allocation of resources. The Board of Directors are of the opinion that under IFRS 8 the Company has only one operating segment and one geographic market in UK. The Board of Directors assess the performance of the operating segment using financial information which is measured and presented in a manner consistent with that in the Financial Statements. Segmental reporting will be reviewed and considered in light of the development of the Company's business over the next reporting period.

   9.   TAXATION 

The Company is incorporated in Jersey, and its activities are subject to taxation at a rate of 0%.

10. EARNINGS PER SHARE

The Company presents basic and diluted earnings per share information for its ordinary shares. Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share are determined by adjusting the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding for the effects of all dilutive potential ordinary shares.

There is no difference between the basic and diluted earnings per share, as the Company has no potential ordinary shares.
