Honye Financial Services Ltd

Half-Yearly results for the period ended 31 January 2020

Honye Financial Services Ltd announces its half-yearly results for the six months ended 31 January 2020.


We recently published our annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 July 2019 and sent notice to shareholders of the Annual General Meeting of Honye Financial Services Limited ("the Company") which is to be held on 4(th) May 2020.

On 7(th) April 2020 the Company announced the appointment of Yu Xing Liu to the Board. Mr Liu's appointment will enlarge our network of contacts and enhance the Board's ability to source and assess potential investments.

The Corona Virus continues to disrupt the world ' s businesses and the Lockdown in the UK has dramatically slowed economic activity here. There is light at the end of the tunnel as we see China beginning to return to normal after several months and there are tentative steps in Italy, Austria and Denmark to slowly lift restrictions allowing people to return to work.

Your Board throughout this period has continued to review possible investments and acquisitions and hope to identify one sufficiently attractive for the Company to acquire or invest in the next few months.

The Company was incorporated and registered in the Cayman Islands as a private company limited by shares on 25 April 2018 under the Companies Law (as revised) of The Cayman Islands, with the name Honye Financial Services Limited, and registered number 336262.

The Company ' s registered office is located at Ogier Global (Cayman) Limited, 89 Nexus Way, Camana Bay, Grand Cayman, KY1-9901, Cayman Islands.


The principal activity of the Company is to seek acquisition opportunities.


New interpretations and revised standards effective for the period ended 31 January 2020

The Company has applied the same accounting policies and methods of computation in its interim financial statements as in its 2019 annual financial statements, except for those that relate to new standards and interpretations effective for the first time for periods beginning on (or after) 1 January 2020, and will be adopted in the 2020 annual financial statements. New standards impacting the Company in the annual financial statements for the year ending 31 July 2020, and which have given rise to changes in the Company ' s accounting policies are:

IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements and IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors (Amendment - Definition of Material)

IFRS 3 Business Combinations (Amendment - Definition of Business)

Revised Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting

The Directors do not believe these standards and interpretations will have a material impact on the financial statements once adopted.

Standards and interpretations in issue but not yet effective

There are a number of standards and interpretations which have been issued by the International Accounting Standards Board that are effective for periods beginning subsequent to 31 July 2020 (the date on which the company ' s next annual financial statements will be prepared up to) that the Company has decided not to adopt early. The Directors do not believe these standards and interpretations will have a material impact on the financial statements once adopted.


Basis of preparation

These interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting as adopted by the European Union and prepared under the historic cost convention. The comparative figures as at 31 July 2019 have been extracted from the Company ' s Financial Statements for that financial year, but do not constitute these accounts.

The financial information is presented in Pounds Sterling ( GBP ), which is the Company ' s functional currency. A summary of the principal accounting policies of the Company are set out below.

b) Going concern

The Company meets its day-to-day working capital requirements through cash generated from the capital it has raised on admission to the London Stock Exchange and subsequently it has GBP 1.7 million in cash as at 31 January 2020 which is sufficient for its present needs. The Company is likely to need to raise additional funds for planned acquisitions and this will likely be obtained through further transactions through the market.

Taking its cash position into account, the Directors are satisfied that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future and for a period of not less than 12 months from the date of signing the financial statements. Thus they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the interim financial statements.

c) 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.

d) Financial instruments

A financial asset or a financial liability is recognised only when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. 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.

Financial assets

All financial assets are recognised and derecognised on a trade date where the purchase or sale of a financial asset is under a contract whose terms require delivery of the financial asset within the timeframe established by the market concerned, and are initially measured at fair value.

Financial assets are subsequently classified into the following specified categories: Financial assets measured at fair value through profit and loss (FVTPL), Financial assets measured at amortised cost and Financial assets measured at fair value through other comprehensive income .The Company's financial assets measured at amortised cost comprise cash and cash equivalents in the statement of financial position.

Financial liabilities

The Company ' s financial liabilities include 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 obligation are discharged, cancelled or they expire.

e) Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include 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.


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.


Objectives and policies

The Company is exposed to a variety of financial risks: market 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.

b) Currency risk

Currency risk is not considered to be material to the Company as majority of bank transactions were incurred in Pounds Sterling ( GBP).

c) Credit risk

Credit risk refers to the risk that a counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company.

Concentrations of credit risk exist to the extent that the Company ' s cash were all held with DBS Bank. Per Standard & Poor ' s - the Short Term Deposit Rating is A-1+.

d) 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.


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 the 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.

Honye Financial Services Limited has no activities at present other than reviewing possible investment opportunities.

The Company presents basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share information for its ordinary shares.

There is no difference between the basic and diluted loss per share.
