Chairman's Report

Papillon Holdings PLC ("the Company") is an investment company with the primary objective of undertaking a single acquisition of a target company, business or asset in the industrial or service sectors.

In our interim report published in December 2018 we reported that, on 18 May 2018, we had reached agreement via a non-binding head of terms to make an investment in 50% of the issued share capital of a fintech company focussed on the used car market, Pace Cloud Limited, trading as CarCloudÒ. The Trade Mark has now been successfully registered.

Car Cloud has developed innovative technology that bridges the gap between private and retail vehicle sales and delivers consistently high values for the user. It has an aggressive growth strategy, utilising its unique technology to expand its offering to an, as yet, underexploited area of the private car sale market; currently +200,000 private cars are sold and brought every month in the UK. The app has been launched and can be searched and downloaded under the name, "CarCloud". The service had not yet been launched nationally as yet but the initial metrics are proving to be very promising.

The transaction is progressing well, and we have executed a Share Purchase Agreement to acquire a 50% interest in Pace Cloud Limited. Additionally, Papillon is raising up to GBP800k via the issue of convertible loan notes ('Loan Notes'), which will be drawn down as required by the Company and to date, GBP200k has been received. The Loan Notes carry an interest coupon of 10 per cent pa over their minimum term of 12 months, with a conversion price of 1.25 pence per new Papillon ordinary share. A further GBP300,000 is due from the Company's Brokers on around 10 May 2019.

The proceeds from the issue of the Loan Notes will be used, in conjunction with existing resources, to continue to finance the costs of developing the CarCloud App and business together with the expenses of Papillon Holdings PLC. The directors believe that the investment in Car Cloud has enormous potential in a very large market and that the proposed investment should add significant shareholder value and the directors continue to investigate routes to enhancing the offering, the valuation and the route to market of CarCloud. The investment proposes to break new ground in the market in which it operates, and the business model is a complete new solution in the way that individuals own and protect their vehicles, it is a complete ownership solution from purchase and finance, through maintenance and on to the ultimate sale of a vehicle. The Company has submitted a full information memorandum to the UK Listing Authority ('UKLA'), which will be published in due course. The UKLA continue to review the prospectus and we expect this to be agreed with UKLA in the relatively near future in order that the placing and re-admission of the shares of your company to trading on the standard segment of the LSE may take place. The Investment is subject, inter alia, to the completion of due diligence, documentation and compliance with all regulatory requirements.

I would personally like to thank our shareholders again for their patience during this process and the extended time in which the shares of your company have been suspended from trading and we look forward to a successful future post the completion of our investment in Car Cloud.

   1       General information 

Papillon Holdings Plc ('the company') is an investment company incorporated in the United Kingdom. The address of the registered office is disclosed on the company information page at the front of the annual report. The Company was incorporated and registered in England and Wales on 19 October 2015 as a private limited company and re-registered on 24 June 2016 as a public limited company when listed on London Stock Exchange.

   2       Accounting policies 
   2.1   Basis of Accounting 

This financial information has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), including IFRIC interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) as adopted by the European Union and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention. The principal accounting policies adopted are set out below.

These policies have been consistently applied.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgment or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements are disclosed in Note 3. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Although these estimates are based on management's experience and knowledge of current events and actions, actual results may ultimately differ from these estimates.

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an on-going basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised if the revision affects only that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods.

   a)    Going concern 

These financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that the Company is a going concern. When assessing the foreseeable future, the Directors have looked at a period of at least twelve months from the date of approval of this report and the working capital requirements of the Company.

After making enquiries, the Directors firmly believe that together with their support the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements.

b) Changes in accounting policies and disclosures

(a) New and amended standards adopted by the Company

The Company has applied any applicable new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations that are mandatory for the financial year beginning on or after 1 January 2018 including IFRS 15 and IFRS 9.

The nature and impact of amendment is described below:

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

IFRS 15 supersedes 1AS 11 Construction Contracts, lAS 18 Revenue and related Interpretations and it applies, with limited exceptions, to all revenue arising from contracts with its customers. IFRS 15 establishes a five-step model to account for revenue arising from contracts with customers and requires that revenue be recognised at an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer.

IFRS 15 requires entities to exercise judgement, taking into consideration all of the relevant facts and circumstances when applying each step of the model to contracts with their customers The standard also specifies the accounting for the incremental costs of obtaining a contract and the costs directly related to fulfilling a contract. In addition, the standard requires extensive disclosures.

(b) New, amended standards, interpretations not adopted by the Company

A number of new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations to existing standards have been published that are mandatory for the Company's accounting periods beginning after 1 January 2018, or later periods, where the Company intends to adopt these standards, if applicable, when they become effective. The Company has disclosed below those standards that are likely to be applicable to the Company and is currently assessing the impact of these standards.

-- IFRS 16 Lease, effective date 1 January 2019 sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract, i.e. the customer ('lessee') and the supplier ('lessor'). IFRS 16 completes the IASB's project to improve the financial reporting of leases and replaces the previous leases Standard, IAS 17 Leases, and related Interpretations.

-- IFRIC 23 "Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments", effective date 1 January 2019 clarifies application of recognition and measurement requirements in IAS 12 Income Taxes when there is uncertainty over income tax treatments.

Management has not yet fully assessed the impact of these standards but does not believe they will have a material impact on the financial statements.

   2.2   Segmental reporting 

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The chief operating decision-maker, who is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments, has been identified as the steering committee that makes strategic decisions. In the opinion of the director, the company has one class of business, being that of an investment Company. The company's primary reporting format is determined by the geographical segment according to the location of its establishments. There is currently only one geographic reporting segment, which is the UK. All costs are derived from the single segment.

   2.3   Cash and cash equivalents 

Cash and cash equivalents comprised of cash at bank and in hand.


Equity comprises the following:

-- Share capital: the nominal value of equity shares

-- Share premium

-- Loan notes equity reserve and

-- Accumulated deficit.

Equity instruments

Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or options are shown in equity as a deduction, net of tax, from proceeds.

Financial assets

On initial recognition, financial assets are classified as either financial assets at fair value through the statement of profit or loss, held-to-maturity investments, loans and receivables financial assets, or available-for-sale financial assets, as appropriate.

Loans and receivables

The Company classifies all its financial assets as trade and other receivables. The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired.

Trade receivables and other receivables that have fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market are classified as loans and receivables financial assets. Loans and receivables financial assets are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment loss. Interest income is recognised by applying the effective interest rate, except for short-term receivables when the recognition of interest would be immaterial.

The Company's loans and receivables financial assets comprise other receivables (excluding prepayments) and cash and cash equivalents included in the Statement of Financial Position.

Financial liabilities

Financial liabilities are recognised when, and only when, the Group becomes a party to the contracts which give rise to them and are classified as financial liabilities at fair value

through the profit and loss or loans and payables as appropriate.

When financial liabilities are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value plus directly attributable transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method other than those categorised as fair value through income statement.

Fair value through the income statement category comprises financial liabilities that are either held for trading or are designated to eliminate or significantly reduce a measurement or recognition inconsistency that would otherwise arise. Derivatives are also classified as held for trading unless they are designated as hedges. There were no financial liabilities classified under this category.

The Company determines the classification of its financial liabilities at initial recognition and re-evaluate the designation at each financial year end.

A financial liability is de-recognised when the obligation under the liability is discharged, cancelled or expires.

When an existing financial liability is replaced by another from the same party on substantially different terms, or the terms of an existing liability are substantially modified, such an exchange or modification is treated as a de-recognition of the original liability and the recognition of a new liability, and the difference in the respective carrying amounts is recognised in the income statement.

   2.5   Taxation 

Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax.

There is no tax currently payable based on the Company making a loss for the year. Taxable profit differs from net profit as reported in the statement of comprehensive income because it excludes items of income and expense that are taxable or deductible in other years, 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 end of the reporting period.

Deferred tax is recognised on temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the consolidated financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences.

Deferred tax assets are generally recognised for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which those deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such deferred tax assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary differences arise from goodwill or from the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.

Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries, except where the Company is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated with such investments are only recognised to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficient taxable profits against which to utilise the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected to reverse in the foreseeable future.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at the end of the each reporting period 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 asset to be recovered.

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period in which the liability is settled or the asset realised. The measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities reflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the Company expects, at the end of the reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities.

Current or deferred tax for the year is recognised in profit or loss, except when it relates to items that are recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity, in which case the current and deferred tax is also recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity respectively. Where current tax or deferred tax arises from the initial accounting for a business combination, the tax effect is included in the accounting for the business combination.

   3       Critical accounting estimates and judgments 

The company makes certain judgements and estimates which affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities. Critical judgements and the assumptions used in calculating estimates are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

In the process of applying the Company's accounting policies, which are described above, the Directors do not believe that they have had to make any assumptions or judgements that would have a material effect on the amounts recognised in the financial information.

   4       Financial risk management 

The Company's activities may expose it to some financial risks. 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) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities. The responsibility for liquidity risks management rest

with the Board of Directors, which has established appropriate liquidity risk management framework for the management of the company's short term and long-term funding risks management requirements. During the period under review, the Company has not utilised any borrowing facilities. The Company manages liquidity risks by maintaining adequate reserves by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows, and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities.

b) Capital risk

The Company takes great care to protect its capital investments. Significant due diligence is undertaken prior to making any investment. The investment is closely monitored.

Fair value hierarchy All the financial assets and financial liabilities recognised in the financial statements which are short-term in nature are shown at the carrying value which also approximates the fair values of those financial instruments. Therefore, no separate disclosure for fair value hierarchy is required.

The Company's activities expose it to a variety of financial risks, mainly credit risk and liquidity risk.

Market risk Market risk is defined as the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Company's market risks arise from open positions in (a) interest bearing assets and liabilities, and (b) foreign currencies; to the extent that these are exposed to general and specific market movements (see details below).

(i) Interest rate risk The Company's interest-bearing assets comprise of only cash and cash equivalents. As Papillon Holdings' interest-bearing assets do not generate significant amounts of interest; changes in market interest rates do not have any significant direct effect on its income.

(ii) Currency risk The Company is exposed to movement in foreign currency exchange rates arising from normal trading transactions that are denominated in currencies other than the respective functional currencies of the entity, primarily with respect to GBP. The Company does not have a policy to hedge its exposure to foreign currency exchange risk as the Company has both revenue and exposures denominated in GBP such that the net exposure is declining as the Company moves towards being naturally hedged.

Credit risk Credit risk refers to the risk that a counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. Credit risk arises from cash balances (including bank deposits, cash and cash equivalents) and credit exposures to trade receivables. The Company's maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents and trade receivables.

Liquidity risk: Trade and other payables are monitored as part of normal management routine.

Borrowings and other liabilities mature according to the following schedule:

On 26 October 2018 the Company issued GBP100,000 convertible loan notes, repayable on 25 October 2019 if not converted into shares prior to that date, and bearing interest at 10% p.a, payable quarterly in arrears. On 28 November 2018 the Company also issued GBP100,000 convertible loan notes, repayable on 27 November 2019 if not converted into shares prior to that date, and bearing interest at 10% p.a, payable quarterly in arrears.

The net proceeds from the two separate issues of the loan notes have been split between the liability element and an equity component, representing the fair value of the embedded option to convert the liability into equity of the Company:

The Directors estimate the fair value of the liability component of the loan notes at 31 December 2018 to be approximately GBP193,958. This fair value has been calculated by discounting the future cash flows at the deemed market rate of 12%.
