Extracts from the Accounts are set out below:

It is my pleasure to present you with the Annual Report of Angus Energy plc (the "Company" or "Angus Energy") with its subsidiary undertakings (the "Group") for the year ended 30 September 2018.

Firstly, on behalf of the Company, I would like to thank Paul Vonk and Robert Shepherd for their service over the last 3 years. Their leadership and input were instrumental in the Company's development and we wish them all the best. I would also like to welcome on board George Lucan. George brings a unique set of skills to the board which the Company will benefit from during this transformational period.

We have increased the Group's footprint in the Weald with the acquisition of our interest in Balcombe. The positive test results reinforce the decision to purchase the asset and keeps us on track to provide conventional, low-risk exploration and incremental value-adding opportunities. Operationally the team has safely completed the Balcombe well test as well as the currently suspended well test at Brockham.

Financial and Statutory Information

Revenue from oil and gas production during the year was up to £0.066m (2017: £nil) on production of 1,678 barrels. This was the result of the bringing on stream of the Lidsey and Brockham Oil Fields during the year.

The Group recorded a loss of £2.790m (2017: £2.612m).

Following a £2m placing on 5 November 2018 and £1.5m draw down on 10 January 2019 the Group has a strong cash position. A further £2.2m was raised on 15 February 2019 to repay the £1.5m drawn down from our loan facility. This is after accounting for all costs associated with the testing of Brockham X4Z (completed after the reporting period).

Outlook

The Company will continue to work towards commercial production from the Weald Basin and is continuously evaluating new opportunities.

The more limited operations originally proposed at Balcombe have been suspended whilst the Company prepares a planning application for an extended production test at the Balcombe field which shall be submitted as early as practical subject to the approval of our farmee partners . The Company intends to apply and plan for a long term production test for a minimum of 150 days, and also for further extended long term production testing of a minimum of 24 months if granted.

Following the suspension of the well test at Brockham the long lead equipment to isolate the water zones at Brockham has been sourced and is ready for shipping. Options for logging the well to identify the water zone are being considered to give the best results. The Company shall immediately start rig selection and submit a detailed engineering program for approval by our partners and all relevant regulators. The Company welcomes this news as it will greatly speed up the process of re-starting production at Brockham. The operation will be in two stages, water identification and isolation followed by production testing without the rig based on successful identification and isolation of the water zone.

At Lidsey the Company continues to produce crude oil at a variable self-restricted flowrate due to produced water disposal limitations. Whilst the well remains commercially profitable in spite of these limitations, the Company also continues to explore all water disposal solutions including water injection to aid production. Additionally, the Company is beginning a detailed study into the potential exploration lead to the west of the existing Lidsey producing structure. Further work is required to work up the target and determine risk and viability however indications are it could be drilled from the existing pad and potentially a side track of one of the existing wells greatly reducing costs as well as any environmental impact.

Cameron Buchanan

Chairman

05 March 2019

I am pleased to join Angus Energy plc as Executive Director and interim Managing Director. The past few weeks have seen an overhaul of the composition of the Board with a view to strengthening corporate governance and communications with Shareholders, and shortly hope to announce the Board appointments as outlined in the announcement of 29 January 2019.

First please allow me to thank my predecessors, Jonathan Tidswell and Paul Vonk, in their respective roles of Executive Chairman and Managing Director. Under their guidance this excellent portfolio of onshore assets has been assembled and brought into production in some instances, and to the point of production, in others.

The prior fiscal year has been very active for Angus Energy with the bringing on stream of the new Lidsey well, acquisition and testing of Balcombe and the testing of the Kimmeridge layers at Brockham.

Our first concern as a Company must be for the safety of our staff, contractors, the public at large and the environment on which we rely on all operations were performed without any safety incidents or environmental damage. We will continue to work in close co-operation with all of our regulators, ensuring a spotless record of compliance - the Oil and Gas Authority ("OGA"), the Environment Agency ("EA") and the Health and Safety Executive.

Business Review

The principal activity of the Group during the year continued to be on-shore, conventional production and development of hydrocarbons in the UK.

Review of activities

Lidsey

The year began with the successful completion of the drilling of the Lidsey X2 well which was a horizontal well targeting the currently producing Great Oolite Limestone. The horizontal section in the reservoir totaled 443 m in the upper part of the Great Oolite. The well design was selected to reduce the risk of water production as seen in the original Lidsey X1 vertical well.

The Lidsey X2 well was drilled on time and within budget and production began on 17 November 2018 with an initial flow rate of 40 barrels oil per day (bopd) of API 38.5. Once production had been established from Lidsey X2, the earlier Lidsey X1 well was also put into production after the Kimmeridge analysis mentioned below.

The Lidsey X2 well also encountered the Kimmeridge Clay formation and samples were routinely sent for geochemical analysis. Surprisingly, for such a peripheral location the Kimmeridge appeared to be much more mature than expected and on the borders of oil generation. Accordingly, when recompleting the Lidsey X1 well the Kimmeridge was tested. Traces of oil were recovered but due to the lack of thick limestones it was clear that oil could not be extracted easily at commercial rates due to Lidsey X1's location being on the edge of the basin. However further development, enhanced completion techniques and fishbone drilling combined with stimulation are some of the possible avenues to future Kimmeridge production at Lidsey X1.

Current emphasis is on improving production reliability and reducing operating costs at Lidsey X2. Production rates remain restricted due to water disposal and alternative options for water disposal are being considered as this is a large proportion of the operating cost. Previously water produced could be injected at other sites however due to changes in regulation this is no longer possible. A dual completion / injector system is being considered as it would allow water injection without drilling a new injector well.

Future work on Lidsey may include further seismic analysis if the practical issues can be solved. This seismic work would permit re-mapping and investigating of a potential low risk prospect to the west seen in the first mapping of the structure and mentioned in previous RNS announcements.

On 25 April 2018, the Company received approval of its retention application for the Lidsey field from West Sussex County Council's Planning Committee which extends planning permission for the field for a further decade. Finally, on 18 February 2019 the company received permission to operate pumping equipment for 24 hours a day, seven days a week at the Lidsey site. There is no variation to the existing limits on any other operations at the site.

Balcombe

On the 10 May 2018, the Board entered into a transaction with Cuadrilla Balcombe Limited and Lucas Bolney Limited to farm-in for a 25% interest in the Balcombe Field. To fund the cost of this acquisition and the additional costs for the testing of Balcombe, the Group raised £2m on 9 February 2018 and entered into a £3m convertible loan facility. Shortly thereafter on 21 May 2018, the OGA approved the Group's Operatorship of the Field.

The Balcombe licence is interesting because extensive geochemical modelling by Angus and others indicates that the licence is fairly central in the mature area of the Kimmeridge indicating a high probability of considerable amounts of Kimmeridge oil being present. This information was acquired from a previous vertical exploration well which tested around 50 barrels per day of oil from a short Kimmeridge interval.

Approval of the transfer of operatorship was followed on 24 September 2018 by the commencement of a 7 day well test which was constrained by planning obligations and completed on 2 October 2018, just after the end of the period under review. The test utilised Nitrogen and coiled tubing to clean and lift the well for production. The initial operation involved the use of brine to wash out fines and solids around the liner in the horizontal section. Having cleaned the well, an acid wash was performed over the entire horizontal section. Using the coiled tubing and nitrogen the brine was lifted back from the well and the formation together with emulsified oil and clean fresh oil from the formation.

From several periods the well flowed oil and brine (from the previous clean-up) during this process. At the end of the available testing period the brine lost to the formation had all been recovered but considerable amounts of brine continued to be produced with oil. Analysis of the oil sampled showed oil quality of 34 API which is consistent with the Kimmeridge formation oil.

Sampling of the brine late in the testing process, initially suggested that this was formation brine. However, when analysed, the salinity of the brine was found to be inconsistent with the formation fluids expected in this horizon but identical to the brine used during the drilling operation. Detailed study of the much earlier drilling records indicated that potentially much larger amounts of brine had been lost during that drilling and that these would not yet have been recovered.

Future operations will recover this remaining brine with a view to preparing for an extended well test of the well once planning and regulatory processes have been completed. It is anticipated that the regulatory approvals process will take some months to complete before extended well testing would be possible.

Brockham

On 23 October 2017, the Company received final approval from the Oil and Gas Authority ("OGA") for its Field Development Plan Addendum at the Brockham Oil Field (Production License PL235). This OGA approval was the final regulatory consent needed for the Company to begin production from the Kimmeridge layers in the Brockham X4Z well. Finally, in August 2018 the Group received planning permission from Surrey County Council to test the Brockham X4Z well and bring it into production.

In the interim, on 8 November 2017, the OGA gave approval to the Group's acquisition of Terrain Energy's 10% interest in the Brockham Field, taking the Group's share from 55% to 65%. In March 2018 the Company resumed production from the Brockham well BRX2Y although there were no significant changes from pre shut-in production levels, this move allowed the company to re-start site operations and test all existing topside equipment including generators, pumps and oil loading facilities.

The X4Z Well Test began in December 2018 and, after a closure over the holiday period due to prior arrangements with contractors concerning required staffing levels, resumed in January. The results of the test are dealt with in detail below in the section covering "Events after the reporting Period".

Holmwood

Finally we retained our 12.5% interest in the Holmwood Licence and the operator, Europa Oil & Gas, is considering new drill sites for an exploratory well following a decision by the Minister of Environment in September 2018 regarding planning permissions for a previously proposed drill site.

Strategy

The Directors' objective is to create long term value for shareholders by building the Group into a leading onshore oil production company. The Directors' are focused on three areas:

· Increase production and recovery from its existing asset portfolio.

· Grow the asset portfolio through select onshore development and appraisal projects both within and outside of the Weald basin.

· Actively management costs and risks through operational and management control of the entire process of exploring, appraising and developing its assets.

Financial Review

The Group began the period with the following interests: 55% of Brockham (PL235), 60% of Lidsey (PL241), 12.5% of Holmwood (PEDL 143).

The Group had a cash balance of £1.224m as at 30 September 2017 which was complemented by the gross proceeds of £3m raised on 23 November 2017, £2m raised on 9 February 2018 and £3m drawn down from the convertible loan facility put in place on 23 April 2018. The holders of the facility converted their interest into shares in the following three months and thus at the end of the period the Group had no loans outstanding.

On 8 November 2017 the Group received final regulatory approval from the Oil and Gas Authority ("OGA") for its previously disclosed agreement to acquire Terrain Energy Limited's 10% interest in the Brockham Oil Field PL235 increasing the Group's interest to 65%.

On 22 January 2018 the Group entered into a sale agreement to acquire a 25% interest in the Balcombe Oil Field for a cash payment of £4m along with the costs of the well test program of Balcombe-2Z. The Company will also assume the associated costs of a Field Development Plan submission to the Oil & Gas Authority. To contribute funding to the acquisition and cover operational costs the group entered into a £2m gross placing on 9 February and on 23 April 2018 it has issued a £3 m unsecured convertible security.

As at 30 September 2018, the Group retained a 65% in Brockham field, 60% interest in Lidsey field and 25% in the Balcombe field where the Group is the operator of all 3 fields. The Group also retained a 12.5% interest in the Holmwood field. The Group had cash reserves of £0.846m.

The Group generated £0.066m revenue from oil and gas production during the year (2017 £Nil). This was the result of the sale of 1,678 bbls of oil.

The Group recorded a loss of £2.790m (2017 a loss of £2.629m) of which £390k relates to the finance costs of the loan notes. For the year under review, the administrative expenses increased to £2.230m (2017: £1.925m). This increase is due to the Group's increased corporate and operational activity and the associated running costs of being listed.

Corporate Governance

I joined the Board with the aim of improving standards of corporate governance at Angus Energy. The first task in that regard was to assemble an effective and appropriate Board. The previous Board, at least until July of last year, had, as its executive Chairman, a founder shareholder, and only one other executive officer. This was an unsatisfactory situation which corporate governance codes here in the UK and elsewhere always seek to discourage. The composition of the Board that followed Mr. Tidswell-Pretorius' resignation was even more unsatisfactory, having only one executive officer.

The Board has now proposed a series of executive appointments, promoting our chief Technical Officer, Mr. Andrew Hollis, to the Board as Technical Director and Mr. Carlos Fernandes as Financial Director. As long time employees they are expected to bring an intimate knowledge of the Company and its operations without a great increase in cost to the Shareholders. These appointments will also streamline decision making.

The Board hopes to announce the appointment of a non-executive Chairman imminently and thereafter I would recommend that the Nominations Committee may consider one further non-executive director. We will shortly publish on our website our revised committee structure together with a corporate governance calendar.

Communications with shareholders, and stakeholders in general, is another key pillar of good governance. I have mentioned a desire to provide more thorough and regular updates to shareholders than they may have been accustomed to in the past. In this regard, we are under regulatory obligations as a Company in what we can disclose and the manner in which we do so - by the rules of the AIM, the commercial considerations of our Partners in the licences, by Market Abuse Regulations (MAR) and by our operating regulators.

Nonetheless the Company will, as promised, set up a forum on the internet for queries and suggestions so that, even if we are limited in what we can say to you, we are not so limited by what you, shareholders and stakeholders, can say to us. I personally receive almost daily updates on our social media feed. Many minds are better than few and technical suggestions and criticisms are welcomed.

Following Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorius's share dealing and resignation from the board the Company has initiated its own investigation into the matter which has drawn on too long. The investigation is still ongoing, under my supervision, and we aim to bring this matter to a rapid conclusion with an RNS release before the AGM.

Principal risks and uncertainties

Currency risks

The Group sells its produced crude oil; oil is priced in US dollars whilst the bulk of its costs are in GBP and therefore the Group's financial position and performance will be affected by fluctuations in the US dollar, sterling exchange rate along with fluctuations in the oil price. In addition, the Group may make investments in currencies other than Sterling and the Group does not currently intend to hedge against exchange rate fluctuations. Accordingly, the value of such investments may be adversely affected by changes in currency exchange rates notwithstanding the performance of the investments themselves, which may have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Group.

Market risk

The demand for, and price of, oil and gas is highly dependent on a variety of factors beyond the Group's control. The continued marketing of the Group's oil will be dependent on market fluctuations and the availability of processing and refining facilities and transportation infrastructure, including access to roads, train lines and any other relevant options at economic tariff rates over which the Group may have limited or no control. Transport links (including roads and pipelines) may be inadequately maintained and subject to capacity constraints and economic tariff rates may be increased with little or no notice and without taking into account producer concerns. Producers of oil negotiate sales contracts directly with oil purchasers, with the result that the market determines the price of oil. The price depends in part on oil quality, prices of competing fuels, distance to market, the value of refined products and the supply/demand balance. The marketability and prices of oil that may be discovered or acquired by the Group will be affected by numerous factors beyond its control.

Reserve and resource estimates

No assurance can be given that hydrocarbon reserves and resources reported by the Group in the future are present as estimated, will be recovered at the rates estimated or that they can be brought into profitable production. Hydrocarbon reserve and resource estimates may require revisions and/or changes (either up or down) based on actual production experience and in light of the prevailing market price of oil and gas. A decline in the market price for oil and gas could render reserves uneconomic to recover and may ultimately result in a reclassification of reserves as resources. Unless stated otherwise, the hydrocarbon reserve and resources data contained in the financial statements are taken from the Competent Person's Report, at the time of AIM admission on 14 November 2016.

There are uncertainties inherent in estimating the quantity of reserves and resources and in projecting future rates of production, including factors beyond the Group's control. Estimating the amount of hydrocarbon reserves and resources is an interpretive process and, in addition, results of drilling, testing and production subsequent to the date of an estimate may result in material revisions to original estimates.

The hydrocarbon resources data extracted from the Competent Person's Report are estimates only and should not be construed as representing exact quantities. The nature of reserve quantification studies means that there can be no guarantee that estimates of quantities and quality of the resources disclosed will be available for extraction. Therefore, actual production, revenues, cash flows, royalties and development and operating expenditures may vary from these estimates. Such variances may be material. Reserves estimates are based on production data, prices, costs, ownership, geophysical, geological and engineering data, and other information assembled by the Group (which it may not necessarily have produced).

The estimates may prove to be incorrect and potential investors should not place reliance on the forward-looking statements (including data included in the Competent Person's Report or taken from the Competent Person's Report and whether expressed to have been certified by the Competent Person or otherwise) concerning the Group's reserves and resources or production levels. Hydrocarbon reserves and resources estimates are expressions of judgment based on knowledge, experience and industry practice. They are therefore imprecise and depend to some extent on interpretations, which may prove to be inaccurate. Estimates that were reasonable when made may change significantly when new information from additional analysis and drilling becomes available.

This may result in alterations to development and production plans which may, in turn, adversely affect operations. If the assumptions upon which the estimates of the Group's hydrocarbon resources have been based prove to be incorrect, the Group (or the operator of an asset in which the Group has an interest) may be unable to recover and produce the estimated levels or quality of hydrocarbons set out in this document and the Group's business, prospects, financial condition or results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

Environment

As a responsible OGA approved and Environment Agency ("EA") permitted UK operator, Angus Energy is committed to utilising industry best practices and achieving the highest standards of environmental management and safety. Our operations:

• Continuously assess and monitor environmental impact

• Promote internally and across our industry best practices for environmental management and safety

• Constant attention to maintaining our exemplary track record of safe oil and gas production

There were no reportable health and safety incident during the year.

Community

Angus Energy seeks and maintains positive relationships with its local communities. As such, Angus Energy is dedicated to ensuring:

• Open and honest dialogue

• Engagement with stakeholders at all stages of development

• Proactively address local concerns

• Actively minimise impact on our neighbours

• Adherence to a strict health and safety code of conduct

On 4 June 2018, the Group established the Bruce Watt Memorial Scholarship, a yearly scholarship fund of £10,000 per year to support students from Bognor Regis and the surrounding community to undertake further academic studies beyond secondary school. Currently there have been 3 recipients of the Scholarship award.

Events after the reporting period

The Group had a cash balance of £0.846m as at 30 September 2018 subsequent to the significant cash movements described during the reporting period.

After the reporting period, the company completed the Balcombe well test. The test utilised Nitrogen and coiled tubing to clean and prime the well which when removed allowed a natural flow at 853 bopd equivalent, not including 22.5% water. A second flow period was undertaken with the well flowing naturally at 1,587 bopd equivalent, not including 6.6% water.

The Balcombe-2z well produces from a single Micrite Layer, just one of the Kimmeridge Micrite Layers. During the initial flow period, the well slugged at up to 3,000 barrels per day which had to be reduced as it exceeded separator operating capacity. Duration of the test runs were limited. No CO2 or H2S were observed or measured.

The Brockham X4Z well was perforated from 960 metres to 1,155 metres (an interval of 195 metres) measured depth. The objective was to initiate instant flow by perforating with a maximum underbalance of pressure between the reservoir and the well. All kill fluids in the wellbore and lost to the reservoir were recovered. In total 280 barrels have been produced. The well flowed naturally to surface upon the removal of the completion and clean up fluids with flow rates rising steadily as the test continued. It has become apparent that a part of the perforated interval is producing water, which is inhibiting significant oil flow and therefore has not allowed for sustainable flow rates of oil to be reported at this time.

Small quantities of oil of 40 plus API were returned to surface and sampled in the returns and has been confirmed through analysis as Kimmeridge oil.

Angus Energy is now putting together a further engineering program to isolate this water zone which will, subject to agreement from all regulators, include the return of a work over rig and the Company will update the market as soon as possible. Extensive geochemical analysis and modelling of the Weald Basin conducted by and on behalf of Angus Energy, including innovative work on the effects of organic content on measurements of historical temperatures, indicates that the Kimmeridge is mature enough to produce oil over an area which includes Brockham.

On 5 November 2018, the Group announced a £2m private placement at 9p per share. The primary reason for this placing was to increase capitalisation and financial flexibility.

On 9 January 2019, the Group entered into a 2-year £3m loan facility of which £1.5m has already been drawn. The intended use of this facility is for the future development of the Balcombe Field Discovery and to provide further working capital for the Group. On the same date Robert Shepherd also resigned from the board.

On 29 January 2019, Paul Vonk resigned as Managing Director and George Lucan was appointed as Managing Director. The Board is also looking to appoint Carlos Fernandes as Financial Director (currently CFO) and Andrew Hollis as Technical Director (currently Technical Director non-board).

On 26 February 2019, the company announced that it has entered into a binding term sheet regarding the purchase of Doriemus Plc's 20% interest in the Lidsey Licence,PL241, together with its interest in and under the JOA and any wells on the area covered by the Licence (including its 30% direct participating working interest in the Lidsey-X2 production well), for £0.467m of consideration payable in 8,324,024 shares based on a 20 day VWAP at close of business on Friday 22 February 2019 of 5.6148 pence each, subject to regulatory and partner approvals and the execution of all the required sale and purchase agreements.

Outlook

The Company will continue to work towards commercial production from the Weald Basin by water identification and isolation followed by production testing at Brockham and preparing Balcombe for production by applying for the extending well test The company will also continue to explore options to increase production at Lidsey and reduce water disposal costs. Additionally the Company is beginning a detailed study into the potential exploration lead to the west of existing Lidsey producing structure.

I note the Chairman's acknowledgement and would like to personally thank our committed team of professionals at Angus Energy who continue to work hard on behalf of our shareholders.

Approved by the Board of Directors and signed on behalf of the Board.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. General information

Angus Energy Plc (the "Company") is incorporated and domiciled in the United Kingdom. The address of the registered office is Building 3 Chiswick Park, 566 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 5YA.

The principal activity of the Company is that of investment holding. The principal activity of the Group is that of oil extraction for distribution to third parties. The principal activities of the various operating subsidiaries are disclosed in note 15.

2. Presentation of financial statements

The financial statements have been presented in Pounds Sterling (£) as this is the currency of the primary economic environment that the group operates in. The amount are rounded to the nearest thousand (£'000), unless otherwise stated.

3. Accounting policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below.

3.1 Basis of preparation

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International financial Reporting standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union and the Companies Act 2006. The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for certain assets which are stated at their fair value.

3.2 New standards, amendments to and interpretations to published standards not yet effect

A number of new standards and amendments to standards and interpretations have been issued but are not yet effective and in some cases have not yet been adopted by the EU.

The directors do not expect that the adoption of these standards will have a material impact on the financial statements of the Group in future periods, except that IFRS 15 may have an impact on revenue recognition and related disclosures and IFRS 16 will impact the treatment of an operating leases and its presentation. The Group plans to adopt these new standards on the required effective date.

The Group's revenue is driven by sale of crude oil, the goods are sold on their own in separate identified contracts with customers. Delivery point of the sale is the point at which Crude oil passes from the delivery tanker to the customers specified storage terminal, which is generally expected to be the only performance obligation are not expected to have any impact on the Group's profit or loss.

IFRS 16 is likely to require the recognition of most operating lease commitments on the Group's balance sheet as assets and the recognition of a corresponding liability. At 30 September 2019 the present value of operating lease obligations was £822,000 (see note 28).

3.3 Going concern

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

In considering the appropriateness of this basis of preparation, the Directors have reviewed the Group's working capital forecasts for a minimum of 12 months from the date of the approval of this financial statement. At 30 September 2018, the Group had £0.85 million of available cash. Subsequent to the year end, the Group issued 88 million new ordinary shares raised a gross proceeds of £4.2 milllion as additional working capital and entered into a £3 million loan facility. Based on the current management plan, management believes that these funds are sufficient for the expenditure to date as well as the planned forecast expenditure for the forthcoming twelve months. As a result of that review the Directors consider that it is appropriate to adopt the going concern basis of preparation.

3.4 Basis of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements comprise the financial information of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group") made up to the end of the reporting period. Control is achieved when the Group is exposed, or has rights, to variable returns from its involvement with the investee and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the investee.

The consolidated financial statements present the results of the Company and its subsidiaries and joint arrangements as if they formed a single entity. Inter-company transactions and balances between group companies are therefore eliminated in full. The financial information of subsidiaries is included in the Group's financial statements from the date that control commences until the date that control ceases.

Profit or loss and each component of other comprehensive income (OCI) are attributed to the equity holders of the parent of the Group and to the non-controlling interests (NCI). When necessary, adjustments are made to the financial information of subsidiaries to bring their accounting policies into line with the Group's accounting policies. All intragroup assets and liabilities, equity, income, expenses and cash flows relating to transactions between members of the Group are eliminated in full on consolidation.

The acquisition of Angus Energy Holding Limited by the Company, by way of share exchange, for the year ended 30 September 2016 was that of a re-organisation of entities which were under common control. As such, that combination also falls outside the scope of IFRS 3 'Business Combinations' (Revised 2008). The Directors have, therefore, decided that it is appropriate to reflect the combination using the merger basis of accounting in order to give a true and fair view. No fair value adjustments were made as a result of that combination.

3.5 Property, plant and equipment

All fixed assets are initially recorded at cost.

Depreciation is calculated so as to write off the cost of an asset, less its estimated residual value, over the useful economic life of that asset as follows:

Fixtures and fittings - 25% straight line

Plant and machinery - 20% straight line

Motor vehicles - 20% straight line

3.6 Oil and natural gas exploration and evaluation (E&E) expenditure

Oil and natural gas exploration and evaluation expenditure is accounted for using the successful efforts method of accounting.

(a) Licence and property acquisition costs

Licence and property leasehold acquisition costs are capitalised within intangible fixed assets and amortised on a straight-line basis over the estimated period of exploration. Upon determination of economically recoverable reserves amortisation ceases and the remaining costs are aggregated with exploration expenditure and held on a field-by-field basis as proved properties awaiting determination within intangible fixed assets. When development is sanctioned, the relevant expenditure is transferred to tangible production assets.

(b) Exploration expenditure

Geological and geophysical exploration costs are charged against income as incurred. Costs directly associated with an exploration well are capitalised as an intangible asset until drilling of the well is complete and the results have been evaluated. If hydrocarbons are not found, the exploration expenditure is written off as a dry hole. If hydrocarbons are found, and, subject to further appraisal activity, are likely to be capable of commercial development, the costs continue to be carried as an asset. All such carried costs are subject to regular technical, commercial management review to confirm the continued intent to develop or otherwise extract value from the discovery. When this is no longer the case, the costs are written off. When proven and probable reserves of oil and gas are determined and development is sanctioned, the relevant expenditure is transferred to tangible production assets.

(c) Development expenditure

Expenditure on the construction, installation and completion of infrastructure facilities such as platforms, pipelines and the drilling of development wells, including unsuccessful development or delineation wells, is capitalised within tangible production assets.

(d) Maintenance expenditure

Expenditure on major maintenance, refits or repairs is capitalised where it enhances the performance of an asset above its originally assessed standard of performance; replaces an asset or part of an asset which was separately depreciated and which is then written off; or restores the economic benefits of an asset which has been fully depreciated. All other maintenance expenditure is charged to income as incurred.

Treatment of E&E assets at conclusion of appraisal activities

Intangible E&E assets related to each exploration licence/prospect are carried forward, until the existence (or otherwise) of commercial reserves has been determined. If commercial reserves have been discovered, the related E&E assets are assessed for impairment on a cost pool basis as set out below, and any impairment loss of the relevant E&E assets is then reclassified as development and production assets.

3.7 Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised in the Group's balance sheet when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

Trade and other receivables

Trade and other receivables are measured at initial recognition at fair value and are subsequently measured at amortised cost less any provision for impairment.

3.7 Financial instruments (continued)

Trade and other payables

Trade and other payables are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs, and are subsequently measured at amortised cost, where applicable, using the effective interest method, with interest expense recognised on an effective yield basis.

Available-for-sale financial assets

Available-for-sale financial assets are those non-derivative financial assets that are designated as available-for-sale or are not classified in any of the three preceding categories. After initial recognition, available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value with gains or losses being recognised in the fair value adjustment reserve until the investment is derecognised or until the investment is determined to be impaired at which time the cumulate gain or loss previously reported in equity is included in the statement of comprehensive income.

The fair value of investments that are actively traded in organised financial markets is determined by reference to the relevant stock exchange's quoted market bid prices at the close of business on the statement of financial position date. For investments where there is no active market, fair value is determined using valuation techniques. Such techniques include using recent arm's length market transactions; reference to the current market value of another instrument, which is substantially the same; discounted cash flow analysis and option pricing models.

3.8 Impairment of assets

(a) Financial assets

A financial asset is assessed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any objective evidence that it is impaired. A financial asset is considered to be impaired if objective evidence indicates that one or more events have had a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset.

An impairment loss in respect of a financial asset measured at amortised cost is calculated as the difference between its carrying amount, and present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. An impairment loss in respect of an available-for-sale financial asset is calculated by reference to its fair value.

Individually significant financial assets are tested for impairment on an individual basis. The remaining financial assets are assessed collectively in groups that share similar credit risk characteristics.

(b) Non-financial assets

The carrying amounts of the Group's non-financial assets, other than deferred tax assets, are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication exists, then the asset's recoverable amount is estimated. For assets that have indefinite lives, the recoverable amount is estimated at each reporting date.

The recoverable amount of an asset or cash-generating unit is the greater of its value in use and its fair value less costs to sell. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and risk specific to the asset. For the purpose of impairment testing, assets are grouped together into the smallest group of assets that generates cash inflows from continuing use that are largely independent of the cash inflows of other assets or groups of assets (the "cash generating unit").

An impairment loss is recognised if the carrying amount of an asset or its cash generating unit exceeds its estimated recoverable amount. Impairment losses are recognised in the profit or loss.

3.9 Oil and gas production assets

Oil and gas production assets are depreciated using a unit of production method. The cost of producing wells is amortised over total proved and undeveloped oil and gas reserves of the field concerned, except in the case of assets whose useful life is shorter than the lifetime of the field, in which case the straight-line method is applied. Rights and concessions are depleted on the unit-of-production basis over the total proved developed and undeveloped reserves of the relevant area. The unit-of-production rate calculation for the depreciation of field development costs takes into account expenditures incurred to date, together with sanctioned future development expenditure.

In accounting for a farm-out arrangement outside the exploration and evaluation phase, the Group:

· Derecognises the proportion of the asset that it has sold to the farmee

· Recognises the consideration received or receivable from the farmee, which represents the cash received and/or the farmee's obligation to fund the capital expenditure in relation to the interest retained by the farmor

· Recognises a gain or loss on the transaction for the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset disposed of. A gain is recognised only when the value of the consideration can be determined reliably. If not, then the Group accounts for the consideration received as a reduction in the carrying amount of the underlying assets

· Tests the retained interests for impairment if the terms of the arrangement indicate that the retained interest may be impaired

The consideration receivable on disposal of an item of property, plant and equipment or an intangible asset is recognised initially at its fair value by the Group. However, if payment for the item is deferred, the consideration received is recognised initially at the cash price equivalent. The difference between the nominal amount of the consideration and the cash price equivalent is recognised as interest revenue. Any part of the consideration that is receivable in the form of cash is treated as a financial asset and is accounted for at amortised cost.

3.10 Income tax

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

The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from profit as reported comprehensive income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other years and it further excludes items that are not taxable or tax deductible. The Group's liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted or substantively enacted in countries where the Group and its subsidiaries operate by the end of the financial period.

Deferred income taxes are calculated using the balance sheet method. Deferred tax is generally provided on the temporary difference between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. However, deferred tax is not provided on the initial recognition of goodwill, nor on the initial recognition of an asset or liability unless the related transaction is a business combination or affects tax or accounting profit. Deferred tax on temporary differences associated with shares in subsidiaries and joint ventures is not provided if reversal of these temporary differences can be controlled by the Group and it is probable that reversal will not occur in the foreseeable future. In addition, tax losses available to be carried forward as well as other income tax credits to the Group are assessed for recognition as deferred tax assets.

Deferred tax liabilities are provided in full, with no discounting. Deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that the underlying deductible temporary differences will be able to be offset against future taxable income. Current and deferred tax assets and liabilities are calculated at tax rates that are expected to apply to their respective period of realisation, provided they are enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.

Changes in deferred tax assets or liabilities are recognised as a component of tax expense in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, except where they relate to items that are charged or credited directly to equity in which case the related deferred tax is also charged or credited directly to equity.

3.11 Contingent liabilities and contingent assets

A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events and whose existence will only be confirmed by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not wholly within the control of the Group. It can also be a present obligation arising from past events that is not recognised because it is not probable that outflow of economic resources will be required or the amount of obligation cannot be measured reliably.

A contingent liability is not recognised but is disclosed in the notes to the accounts. When a change in the probability of an outflow occurs so that the outflow is probable, it will then be recognised as a provision. A contingent asset is a possible asset that arises from past events and whose existence will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain events not wholly within the control of the Group. Contingent assets are not recognised but are disclosed in the notes to the accounts when an inflow of economic benefits is probable. When inflow is virtually certain, an asset is recognised.

3.12 Operating lease agreements

Rentals applicable to operating leases where substantially all of the benefits and risks of ownership remain with the lessor are charged against profits on a straight line basis over the period of the lease.

3.13 Foreign currencies

Assets and liabilities in foreign currencies are translated into sterling at the rates of exchange ruling at the balance sheet date. Transactions in foreign currencies are translated into sterling at the rate of exchange ruling at the date of the transaction. Exchange differences are taken into account in arriving at the operating profit or loss.

3.14 Decommissioning

Provision for decommissioning is recognised in full on the installation of oil and gas production facilities. The amount recognised is the present value of the estimated future expenditure determined in accordance with local conditions and requirements. A corresponding tangible fixed asset of an amount equivalent to the provision is also created. This is subsequently depreciated as part of the capital costs of the production and transportation facilities. Any change in the present value of the estimated expenditure is reflected in an adjustment to the provision and fixed asset.

3.15 Revenue

Revenue comprises revenue recognised by the company in respect of goods and services supplied during the year, exclusive of Value Added Tax and trade discounts.

Revenue from the sale of oil and petroleum products is recognised when the significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred, which is considered to occur when title passes to the customer. This generally occurs when the product is physically transferred into a vessel, pipe or other delivery mechanism.

Interest income is accrued on a time basis, by reference to the principal outstanding and at the applicable effective interest rate.

3.16 Share-based payments

The Group has applied IFRS 2 Share-based Payment for all grants of equity instruments.

The Group issues equity-settled share-based payments to its employees. Equity-settled share-based payments are measured at fair value at the date of grant. The fair value determined at the grant date of the equity-settled share-based payments is expensed on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, based on the Group's estimate of the shares that will eventually vest.

Fair value is measured using the Black Scholes model. The expected life used in the model has been adjusted, based on management's best estimate, for the effects of non-transferability, exercise restrictions and behavioural considerations. The inputs to the model include: the share price at the date of grant, exercise price expected volatility, risk free rate of interest.

4 Critical accounting estimates and sources of estimation uncertainty

In applying the accounting policies, the directors may at times require to make critical accounting judgements and estimates about the carrying amount of assets and liabilities. These estimates and assumptions, when made, are based on historical experience and other factors that the directors consider are relevant.

The key estimates and assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of the financial year, that have significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are reviewed are as stated below.

Key accounting judgements

(a) Impairment of non-current asset

The Group's non-current assets represent its most significant assets, comprising oil production assets, exploration and evaluation (E&E) assets on its onshore site.

Management is required to assess exploration and evaluation (E&E) assets for indicators of impairment and has considered the economic value of individual E&E assets. The carrying amount of the E&E asset are subject to a separate review for indicators of impairment, by reference to the impairment indicators set out in IFRS 6, which is inherently judgmental.

Processing operations are large, scarce assets requiring significant technical and financial resources to operate. Their value may be sensitive to a range of characteristics unique to each asset and key sources of estimation uncertainty include proved reserve estimates, future cash flow expected to arise from the cash-generating unit and a suitable discount rate.

In performing impairment reviews, the Group assesses the recoverable amount of its operating assets principally with reference to the Group's independent competent person's report, estimates of future oil prices, operating costs, capital expenditure necessary to extract those reserves and the discount rate to be applied to such revenues and costs for the purpose of deriving a recoverable value.

As detailed in note 12 and 13, the carrying amount of the Group's oil production assets and E&E assets at 30 September 2018 were approximately £----5.225million (2017: £2.843million) and £5.218million (2017: £0.155million) respectively. No impairments were made during the year.

The methods and key assumptions in relation to the calculation of the estimates are detailed in note 12.

5. Revenue and segment information

Currently, the Group's principal revenue is derived from the sale of oil. All revenue arose from continuing operations within the United Kingdom. Therefore management considers no detail of operating and geographical segments information is to be reported. Nonetheless, the Group's revenue can be classified into the following streams:

The Group has incurred indefinitely available tax losses of £-----14,796,000 (2017: £10,413,000) to carry forward against future taxable income of the subsidiaries in which the losses arose and they cannot be used to offset taxable profits elsewhere in the Group. In addition, there is approximately £68,000 (2017: £815,000) of deductible temporary difference in respect of the share based payment.

No deferred tax asset was recognised in respect to these accumulated tax losses and the decommissioning provisions as there is insufficient evidence that the amount will be recovered in future years.

Depreciation of oil production assets is included in cost of sales in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

During 2016, the Group sold an option to Alba Mineral Resources Plc, to acquire a 5% stake in the Brockham field, this option was exercised on 9 August 2016. The total consideration payable is 10% of the total costs of the upcoming well conversion work at Brockham capped to a maximum of £187,500 and then 5% of any additional costs.

On 16 December 2016 the Group entered into a sale agreement to acquire a 10% interest in the Brockham oil field for a cash payment of £100,000, relinquishment of Terrain's existing debt to Angus Energy's wholly owned subsidiary Angus Energy Weald Basin No.3 Limited at completion and the carry of Terrain's remaining 10% interest share of the upcoming well costs at Brockham.

The Group simultaneously entered into an option with Terrain for £1 to acquire a 10% interest in the Lidsey oil field for the carry of Terrain's remaining 10% interest share of the upcoming Lidsey-2 horizontal well and a cash payment of £20,000 on exercise of the option, which took place on 4 May 2017.

As at 30 September 2018, the Group retained a 60% interest in Lidsey field and 65% in Brockham field, and is still the operator of both fields.

In assessing whether an impairment is required, the carrying value of the asset or cash generating unit ("CGU") is compared with its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is determined from value in use calculations based on cash flow projections from revenue and expenditure forecasts covering a 5 year period. Assumptions involved in impairment measurement include estimates of commercial reserves and production volumes, future crude oil prices, discount rates and the level and timing of expenditures, all of which are inherently uncertain. The key assumptions used are as follow:





Discount rate


10%


Crude oil price (per barrels)


$60


The growth rate is assumed to be zero and the level of production is constant on the basis the production plant is assumed to be at the most efficient capacity over the period of extraction.

Commercial reserves are proven and probable ("2P") oil and gas reserves, calculated on an entitlement basis. Estimates of commercial reserves underpin the calculation of depletion and amortisation on a Unit of Production ("UOP") basis. Estimates of commercial reserves include estimates of the amount of oil and gas in place, assumptions about reservoir performance over the life of the field and assumptions about commercial factors which, in turn, will be affected by the future oil and gas price.

Annual estimates of oil and gas reserves are generated internally by the Group with external input from operator profiles and/or a Competent Person. These are reported annually to the Board. The self-certified estimated future production profiles are used in the life of the fields which in turn are used as a basis in the value-in-use calculation.

The discount rate is based on the specific circumstances of the Group and its operating segments and is derived from its Weighted Average Cost of Capital ("WACC"), with appropriate adjustments made to reflect the risks specific to the CGU and to determine the pre-tax rate. In considering the discount rates applying to the CGUs, the directors have considered the relative sizes, risks and the inter-dependencies of its CGUs. No reasonably possible change in a key assumption would produce a significant movement in the carrying value of the CGUs and therefore no sensitivity analysis is presented.

During 2017 the period, the Group has entered into an agreement to acquire a 12.5% economic interest in PEDL143 through the immediate payment of certain historic costs incurred by the Operator, amounted to approximately £155,000, along with 25% of the costs of the Holmwood-1 exploration well up to a gross well cost of £3.2 million (£800,000 net cost to Angus), and certain further contingent costs.

On 16 February 2018 the Group entered into a new partnership with Cuadrilla Balcombe Limited and Lucas Bolney Limited. The Group joined the partnership through the acquisition of a 25% interest in licence PEDL244, which includes the entire Balcombe Field discovery, for a total consideration of £4million. On behalf of the partnership, Angus Energy assumed Operatorship of the Balcombe licence.

In performing impairment review, the Group assessed the economic value of individual exploration and evaluation (E&E) assets and had considered no indication for impairment to these E&E assets.

22. BONDS AND DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT

On 16 February 2016 the Company published an Information Memorandum (the "IM") in connection with an application for admission of up to £3,500,000 sterling denominated secured bonds of denomination £1, with a maturity date of 30 June 2022, to trading on the NEX Exchange Growth Market. The Bonds will bear interest at the rate of 8.5 per cent. per annum, payable quarterly in arrears.

The Company intends to issue Bonds when a need for finance arises, in order to progress its plans for the development of its licence portfolio, once the well(s) provided for in its work programme in relation to each of Brockham and Lidsey have been drilled using the AIM Proceeds. Once the well(s) have been drilled, proceeds from the issue of Bonds can be utilised to move forward the cash flows of the Company's production asset(s) in order to accelerate the Company's business plan. Financing the development of its licence portfolio in this manner rather than by the use of cash reserves or the issue of new ordinary shares will allow the Company to increase the value of its production reserves and avoid shareholder dilution.

As at 30 September 2018, the Bonds in issue was £nil (30 September 2017 - £nil)

The Group makes full provision for the future costs of decommissioning oil production facilities and pipelines on the installation of those facilities. The amount provision is expected to be incurred up to 2029 when the producing oil and gas properties are expected to cease operations.

These provisions have been created based on the Group's internal estimates and expectation of the decommissioning costs likely to incur in the future. For the period under review, the directors have assessed that the discount rate and inflation rate to be applied to the current cost of decommissioning to be similar. On this basis, the current cost is considered to be similar to the discounted net present value.

24. Convertible loan note

There are no fair value adjustments to assets or liabilities through profit and loss. There are no financial assets that are either past due or impaired.

Capital management

The Group manages its capital to ensure that it will be able to continue as a going concern while attempting to maximise the return to stakeholders through the optimisation of the debt and equity balance. The capital structure of the group consists of issued capital and external loans.

Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk that a counter-party will cause a financial loss to the Group by failing to discharge its obligations to the Group. The Group manages its exposure to this risk by applying limits to the amount of credit exposure to any one counterparty and employs strict minimum credit worthiness criteria as to the choice of counterparty. The maximum exposure to credit risk for receivables and other financial assets is represented by their carrying amount.

Fair values

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

Interest rate risk

The Group and company's policy is to fund its operations through the use of retained earnings and equity.

The Group exposure to changes in interest rates relates primarily to cash at bank. Cash is held either on current or short term deposits at a floating rate of interest determined by the relevant bank's prevailing base rate.

Foreign currency exchange risks

Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of an exposure will fluctuate because of the changes in foreign exchange rates. The Group's exposure to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates relates primarily to the Group's operating activities (when revenue or expense is denominated in a foreign currency and the Group's net investments in foreign subsidiaries.

The Group does not hedge its foreign currencies. Transactions with customers are mainly denominated in US Dollars. The Group has bank accounts in US Dollars to mitigate against the exchange risks.

Liquidity risks

The principal risk to the Group is liquidity, which arises from the Group's management of working capital. It is a risk that the Group will encounter difficulty in meeting its financial obligations as they fall due. This aspect is kept under review by the directors and in this respect management carries out rolling 12 month cash flow projections on a monthly basis as well as information regarding cash balances. It is the Group's policy as regards liquidity to ensure sufficient cash resources are maintained to meet short-term liabilities.

The maturity profile of the Group's financial liabilities at the reporting dates based on contractual undiscounted payments are summarised below:

Commodity price risk

The Group is exposed to the risk of fluctuations in prevailing market commodity prices of oil products it produces. The table below summarises the impact on profit before tax for changes in commodity prices

Commodity price sensitivity

The analysis is based on the assumption that the crude oil price moves 10% resulting in a change of US$----7,13/bbl in 2018 (2017: US$4.05/bbl), with all other variables held constant. Reasonably possible movements in commodity prices were determined based on a review of the average spot prices at each reporting periods.

Share capital comprises the ordinary issued share capital of the company.

Share premium comprises of the excess above the nominal value of the new ordinary shares issued during the period.

The merger relief reserve represents the difference between the cost of the investment in Angus Energy Holding UK Limited (initially measured at fair value) and the nominal value of the shares transferred as consideration.

Retained earnings represent the aggregate retained earnings of the company.

1. General information

The company was incorporated in England and Wales on 1 June 2015 as a private limited company. Its registered office is located at Building 3, Chiswick Park, 566 Chiswick High Street, London, W4, 5YA.

The financial information of the company is presented in British Pounds Sterling ("£") and rounded into thousand (£'000).

2. Accounting policies

Basis of preparation

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the historical cost convention as modified by the revaluation of certain fixed assets. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with FRS 102 - The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland and the Companies Act 2006. The principal accounting policies are described below. They have all been applied consistently throughout the period.

The company meets the definition of a qualifying entity under FRS 102 and has therefore taken advantage of the disclosure exemptions available to it in respect of its separate financial statements, which are presented alongside the consolidated financial statements. Exemptions have been taken in relation to financial instruments, presentation of a cash flow statement and remuneration of key management personnel.

Investment

Investments in subsidiaries are stated at cost less provision for impairment. Where merger relief is applicable, the cost of the investment is recorded at the fair value on the date of the transaction. The difference between the fair value of the investment and the nominal value of the shares (plus the fair value of any other consideration given) is shown as a merger relief reserve and no share premium is recognised

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash in the statement of financial position is cash held on call with banks.

Financial assets

The directors classify the company's financial assets held at amortised cost less provisions for impairment. The directors determine the classification of its financial assets at initial recognition.

Creditors

Short term creditors are measured at the transaction price. Other financial liabilities, including bank loans, are measured initially at fair value, net of transaction costs, and are measured subsequently at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

Taxation

Tax is recognised in the Statement of comprehensive income, except that a charge attributable to an item of income and expense recognised as other comprehensive income or to an item recognised directly in equity is also recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity respectively.

The current income tax charge is calculated on the basis of tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date in the countries where the Company operates and generates income.

Deferred tax balances are recognised in respect of all timing differences that have originated but not reversed by the Statement of financial position date, except that:

· The recognition of deferred tax assets is limited to the extent that it is probable that they will be recovered against the reversal of deferred tax liabilities or other future taxable profits; and

· Any deferred tax balances are reversed if and when all conditions for retaining associated tax allowances have been met.

Deferred tax balances are not recognised in respect of permanent differences except in respect of business combinations, when deferred tax is recognised on the differences between the fair values of assets acquired and the future tax deductions available for them and the differences between the fair values of liabilities acquired and the amount that will be assessed for tax. Deferred tax is determined using tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.

3. Profit for the financial period

The Company has taken advantage of section 408 of the Companies Act 2006 and, consequently, a profit and loss account for the Company alone has not been presented. The Company's loss for the financial period was approximately £1,850,000 (2017: £1,506,000).

4. Staff costs

There are no employees employed by the company other than the directors. The directors are regarded as the key management and their remunerations are disclosed in note 10 to the consolidated financial statements.
