Mporium is a technology company at the forefront of the transformation in digital marketing. Mporium's proprietary technology enables advertisers, to identify and monetise micro-moments - those moments when there are significant changes in the levels of consumer intent. Using technologies derived from financial services, these micro-moments are used to drive highly performant digital advertising campaigns: from brand advertising to direct response.

The technology has already been adopted by several market leading media agencies including announced relationships with GroupM, Total Media, Jellyfish, Essence and the7stars.

Based in the UK, Mporium Group plc is quoted on AIM, the junior market of the London Stock Exchange plc.

Strategic and Financial Report for the year ended 31 December 2017

Overview

Mporium Group plc (AIM:MPM), the technology company at the forefront of the transformation in digital marketing, listed on the London Stock Exchange's AIM market, is pleased to announce its results for the twelve months to 31 December 2017.

Mporium operates in the growth sector of Digital Advertising and seeks to monetise micro-moments - those moments when there are significant changes in the levels of consumer intent. Throughout 2017, the development of the IMPACT product was accelerated, delivering increased levels of functional sophistication and performance. This resulted in the signing of a number of high profile commercial agreements during the year.

In addition to signing commercial agreements with advertising agencies, the technology was also adopted directly by brands, providing a valuable additional route to market. The momentum generated by the business, product and organisational progress, has provided a strong basis for growth in 2018.

To support the development and marketing of the product, and for general working capital purposes, the Company successfully conducted a fundraise through a placing during the year of £3.0m in March 2017, and closed a further fundraise of £3.1m in December 2017.

Strategy

Mporium's strategy is to implement IMPACT as an overlay to Digital Advertising campaigns, driving enhanced digital performance without the need for either technical integration or the re-engineering of campaigns. The business strategy is driven by the growth of Digital Advertising, and the changing way in which Digital Media spend is allocated as companies become increasingly under pressure to make their campaigns more cost effective.

Digital Media spend in 2017 in Mporium's target markets of Western Europe and North America equated to a market of $126 billion. During 2017, spend on Google and Facebook advertising venues, currently Mporium's key advertising venues, totalled over $52 billion in the US alone, representing over 63% of US Digital Ad spend. Mobile ad formats, which include spending on search and display advertisements served to mobile phones and tablets, will make up 68.3% of digital ad expenditures worldwide in 2018.

The growth of Digital Advertising continues to be fuelled by the unprecedented rate of smartphone adoption. Smartphones have provided consumers with the ability to react instantaneously to events, fundamentally changing the dynamics and performance of Digital Advertising campaigns.

Mobile ad spending overtook global ad outlays on desktop/laptop in 2016, and this gap will continue to widen. The growth of the overall digital market and that of mobile in particular, provide significant impetus to Mporium's business proposition.

The IMPACT product takes a unique approach to delivering enhanced Digital Advertising performance, focussing on the importance of events to consumer engagement. The technology monitors a wide range of Signals in real-time, makes informed data-driven Decisions, and executes the relevant Actions that capitalise on the identified opportunities. These Actions include the real-time pricing and selection of media across search, social and display advertising venues.

The product is based on proprietary technology with strongly defendable Intellectual Property Rights ("IPR"), providing Mporium with a unique and compelling offering that is underpinned by an automated and scalable technology platform.

Business Model

The primary route to market for IMPACT is through digital media agencies, which provide a leveraged salesforce and lower the cost of accessing markets globally. Although agreements with agencies continue to provide the primary route to market, Mporium has also executed a number of engagements with brands directly during 2017.

Revenues to date have been derived as a percentage of spend under management, which is consistent with the revenue model used by the majority of digital agencies. As the Group continues to develop, other models including Software as a Service ("SaaS") delivery and performance-based payments will increase.

Product Development

Substantial investment in the IMPACT product during 2017 has delivered increased product capabilities, flexibility and scalability. The product capabilities have expanded in multiple dimensions: increasing the range of the Signals, Decisions and Actions that are integral to the product.

The range of Signals has increased well beyond the original TV capabilities and now includes multiple new Signals from sources such as Sports, News, Influencer and Social Media. The inclusion of these additional Signals enables digital campaigns to be managed with far greater sophistication and precision.

The Decisions capability of the product has been vastly improved during 2017 through the application of advanced Data Science and Machine Learning techniques. These capabilities are used to analyse the performance of advertising campaigns, identifying anomalies within the campaigns and correlating those anomalies to historical events. This process enables IMPACT to take advantage of similar events when they occur in the future.

The Actions capabilities have increased through the deeper integration of IMPACT with the Google AdWords and Facebook platforms. The technology operates as an overlay to existing campaigns and credentials, using proprietary connectivity to the relevant advertising engine Application Programming Interfaces ("APIs").

The increased scalability of the product has been important in a number of ways. It has enabled the product to service a greater number of clients and also to operate at greater scale across campaigns and geographies. In the case of Sports Signals alone, this increased scalability enabled the product to deliver over 10 million ad impressions in over 130 countries during a four month period.

Business Activity

IMPACT gained significant market traction during 2017 with a number of important commercial agreements:

·    Essence, a market-leading global digital agency that is majority-owned by WPP. This new agreement follows the successful trial of IMPACT on the digital marketing campaign for two of Essence's largest blue-chip clients.

·    the7stars, the UK's largest independent media agency. Mporium's technology helped Iceland and the7stars win Best Paid Search Campaign in The Drum Digital Trading Awards.

·    A pure-play, listed online female fashion eCommerce company. Unlike previous Mporium deals, no agency was involved; the agreement was signed directly between Mporium and the fashion company.

·    Total Media, the market-leading behavioural planning agency. IMPACT will be rolled out across further campaigns, with an increased remit making use of additional triggers and advertising venues. This is the first agreement that Mporium has signed with a behavioural planning agency.

·    An agreement to provide IMPACT to one of the world's largest and most prestigious performance marketing agencies. The initial deployment of IMPACT is with a leading global electronics brand. The agency operates in more than 50 countries and is part of one of the largest communications groups in the world.

·    Following the successful implementation of IMPACT with a number of GroupM agencies, a commercial agreement was signed with the wider group. This agreement provides access to the IMPACT technology across the GroupM agencies.

To ensure the momentum achieved in 2017 is maintained and growth accelerated, the Company appointed Glyn Shadwell as Chief Operating Officer ("COO") on 13th March 2018.

Glyn has over 20 years' experience in the marketing sector and was most recently Head of Strategy & Client Partnerships at Quantcast, he previously held senior roles within a number of marketing agencies, including Dentsu Aegis, McCann Erickson and Manning Gottlieb OMD. Glyn is a well-known and respected figure within the industry and brings a deep knowledge of clients, product strategy, operational excellence and cultural best practice to Mporium.

Corporate Activity

The Company raised additional capital on two occasions in 2017 to fund the substantial investment in IMPACT development. These funding rounds have provided both existing and new shareholders further opportunities to invest in Mporium's ground breaking technology.

In March 2017, the Company raised £3.0m net through a placing of 20,333,000 shares at 15p per share, and in December 2017 a placing of 53,333,333 shares at 6p per share raised a further £3.1m net of costs.

In November 2017 Mporium received income of £1.1 million from Cxense, a former commercial partner. This income related to non-trading activities associated with the removal of a lock-in agreement.

Board Changes

On 8th August 2017, after nearly two intensive years as Chairman throughout the Group's crucial foundation phase, Nigel Walder left the business and the Chief Executive Officer, Barry Moat, stepped into the role of Executive Chairman. Nelius De Groot joined the Board as Chief Executive Officer after two years as Chief Operating Officer. Additionally, Richard Gordon, stepped down from his role as Finance Director, and left at the end of September.

On 23rd February 2018, Staale Bjornstad, Non-Executive Director, stood down from the Board and Nicholas (Nick) Bertolotti was appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Company.

Nick brings enviable experience to the Company, having spent over 25 years advising companies in the Technology, Media and Telecoms ("TMT") sector. From 2003 to 2016 he was a Managing Director in Investment Banking at Credit Suisse, where he headed up the European Media Equity Research team. Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Nick worked at JPMorgan and Arthur Andersen (now Deloitte).

Results Overview

The Board is pleased to report good progress in the year to 31 December 2017. Investment in IMPACT has created a highly sophisticated product that has resulted in the signing of a number of high profile commercial agreements that will generate revenues for the Company in 2018 and beyond.

The full year results include costs associated with the continued development and evolution of the IMPACT product. Ensuring that IMPACT's functionality remains first in class, is critical to the Group's development and successful market penetration. These activities are the principal driver behind the financial performance of the Company during the year under review.

Mporium's gross profit increased to £1.823 million, up 21.1% on 2016.

Administrative expenses increased to £6.824 million, up 8.1% on 2016, reflecting the Company's accelerated investment in the IMPACT product. During 2017, Mporium took the opportunity to benefit from releasing Cxense ASA from a share swap lock-in agreement. This enabled the Company to report a total loss before taxation of £3.872 million, a reduction of £0.933 million (19.4%) in comparison with the previous year.

The Company's Fast Web Media (FWM) business reported operating profit of £0.2 million, broadly in line with those generated in 2016. Increasing FWM's customer base has proved challenging, although further impetus to increase client acquisition will be provided by the new Company COO and through the appointment of a new Head of Agency, both of whom have considerable experience of FWM's target market.

Outlook

The growth of Digital Advertising remains buoyant and is forecast to represent a global market of $375 billion by 2021. The vast majority of this growth is being driven by Mobile Ad spending, which should represent 76% of Digital and 38% of Media Ad expenditure by 2021, according to eMarketer.

The growth of the overall digital market and that of mobile in particular, provides significant impetus to Mporium's business proposition. Apart from the financial dynamics, there are a number of business and regulatory factors that provide Mporium with significant business opportunities.

The advertising agency model is undergoing seismic change, driven by the digital transition, increased competition, pressure on margins and the effect of regulation on data privacy. In May 2018, the EU will implement the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will have a dramatic effect on the way in which personal data can be used by advertisers both in Europe and internationally. Although the impact of GDPR is wide-ranging, the issue of data privacy is clearly broader than this regulation, particularly given the effect of the privacy issues raised by the Cambridge Analytica / Facebook investigations.

Many MarTech and AdTech business models are built upon the targeting of individuals, based upon third-party personal data. These businesses are severely exposed to the consequences of the GDPR regulation, and to future data privacy legislation that will likely result from the Cambridge Analytica / Facebook investigations.

Unlike technologies utilising personal data, IMPACT uses events to drive performance, it is about the "when" to reach audiences and not about the "who". The implementation of GDPR will provide IMPACT with a critical business advantage, as the performance of many advertising campaigns that are based upon the usage of personal data for targeting will suffer an immediate decline.

In this new regulatory environment, IMPACT can enhance performance for campaigns without requiring any audience data. However, for those brands and agencies that have acquired the relevant consent to use personal data, IMPACT can further enhance performance by using events to enable them to reach their audience at the optimal times.

The recent Cambridge Analytica / Facebook investigations have also raised the potential for advertisers to redirect advertising spend to other advertising venues. Although the product currently focuses on Google and Facebook, Mporium's technology is advertising venue agnostic. The IMPACT development strategy continues to be driven by advertiser demand and when advertisers embrace additional venues (e.g. Amazon, Oath and Snap), then IMPACT Actions can be extended to incorporate these venues.

The development effort in 2018 will ensure that the product remains at the cutting edge of current technology, delivering a clear performance advantage in a highly disrupted market. There will be particular focus on the Decisions element of the product, which represents core Mporium IP and drives the overall performance of the product.

The Board is confident that a strong foundation was created in 2017, with the increased capability of Mporium's unique technology and increased market penetration. In 2018, management have focused on further developing the relationships that have been built with agencies, as well as targeting new agencies and brands. The positive momentum generated in 2017 has continued into the new year and the Board is confident that 2018 will be a pivotal and successful year for the Company.

KPIs

The financial Key Performance Indicator for the company is revenue based, 2017 revenues are £1.978 million (2016: £1.824 million).

The non-financial Key Performance Indicators for the Company remain under development and will be extended to incorporate metrics that reflect the use of the technology by brands directly:

·      number of leads that are generated;

·      number of agencies that are acquired;

·      number of brands that are serviced;

·      average advertising revenue under management

These are indicators of the evolution of (i) the sales and marketing strategy for the Mporium product, namely to grow the customer base; (ii) the ability of the product to deliver advertising performance at scale; and therefore (iii) the ability to generate recurring income.

These metrics are monitored consistently within the business and the announcements over the previous months indicate significant progress. An update relating to these metrics will be provided as part of the 2018 results.

2    Accounting policies


Statement of Compliance

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the financial statements are set out below. The policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union ('IFRS'). These financial statements have also been prepared in accordance with the Companies Act 2006 as applicable to companies reporting under IFRS.

Basis of preparation

The financial information set out in this statement does not constitute the Group's Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2017 prepared in accordance with the Companies Act 2006.  The auditors have reported on the Group's statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2017 which are unqualified.  The financial information set out in this statement has been extracted from those statutory financial statements.  The financial information contained within this preliminary announcement was approved by the Board on 24 April 2018. The statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016, including an unmodified auditor's report, have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017 will be delivered to the Registrar of Companies following the Company's annual meeting.

The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention and presented in Pounds Sterling, the Group's presentational currency and the company's functional currency. The accounting policies have been applied consistently by the Group to all periods presented in these financial statements.

The preparation of financial statements in compliance with adopted IFRSs requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires Group management to exercise judgment in applying the Group's accounting policies. The areas where significant judgments and estimates have been made in preparing the financial statements and their effect are disclosed in Note 3.

The Group financial statements consolidate the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries. The parent company financial statements present information about the Company as a separate entity and not about its group.

Basis of consolidation

The financial information consolidates the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings. The results of subsidiaries acquired are consolidated for the period from the date on which control passes. Control as defined under IFRS 10 is when the Group obtains the power over the investee, exposure or rights to variable returns from involvement in the investee and the ability to use its power to affect the amount of the investee's returns.

Business combinations are consolidated under the acquisition method of accounting from the date on which the Group obtains control. The cost of a business combination is measured at the fair value of the consideration given, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date irrespective of the extent of any non-controlling interest. The excess of the fair value of consideration transferred over the fair value of the Group's share of the identifiable net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. If the costs of the acquisition are less than the fair value of the net assets acquired the difference is recognised directly in the income statement.

Inter-company transactions, balances and unrealised gains and losses on transactions between Group companies are eliminated in full. The accounting policies which follow set out the policies applied in preparing the Group and company financial information.

Going concern

The Directors have prepared a cash flow forecast up to 30 April 2019 which indicates that continued product development, increased sales and marketing activity and general working capital requirements are likely to require a further funding round within the next 12 months. The success of the previous funding rounds, the most recent in December 2017, and current discussions with major shareholders supports the Directors' reasonable expectation that a further funding round will succeed and Mporium will have adequate resources to continue in operational existence throughout this period.

The financial statements have been prepared assuming the Group and Company will continue as a going concern. In assessing whether the going concern assumption is appropriate, management has considered the Group's and Company's existing working capital position and the recent raise of £3.1m net. Under the going concern assumption, an entity is ordinarily viewed as continuing in business for the foreseeable future with neither the intention nor the necessity of liquidation, ceasing trading or seeking protection from creditors pursuant to laws or regulations. It is noted that if additional funding is not available then the Group and Company would be unlikely to be able to continue as a going concern. These circumstances indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the Group's and Company's ability to continue as a going concern and therefore may be unable to realise assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business.

Changes in accounting policies

Certain new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations to existing standards have been published that are not mandatory for the Group's accounting periods beginning after 1st January, or later periods, to which the Group has decided not to adopt early when early adoption is available for those adopted by the EU. These are:

·      IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (IASB effective date 1 January 2018)

·      IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (IASB effective 1 January 2018)

·      IFRS 16 Leases (IASB effective 1 January 2019 - not yet adopted by the EU)

·      IFRIC 22 Foreign currency transactions and advance consideration (IASB effective date 1 January 2018 - no yet adopted by the EU)

·      IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over income tax treatments (IASB effective date 1 January 2019)

·      IFRS 2: Classification and Measurement of Share-based Payment Transactions (IASB effective date 1 January 2018 - not yet endorsed)

·      Amendments to IAS 7: Disclosure Initiative (IASB effective date 1 January 2017 - not yet endorsed)

·      Amendments to IAS 12: Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets for Unrealised Losses (IASB effective date 1 January 2017 - not yet endorsed)

The impact of IFRS 9, IFRS 16 and IFRS 15 have not yet been considered. With regards to IFRS 15, the impact of this will be assessed as the Group's revenue streams develop and new contracts are negotiated. IFRS 15 will be adopted in the Group's Financial Statements for the 6 months ended 30 June 2018.

Revenue

Revenue comprise of services and software licences provided to external customers (excluding VAT and other sales taxes).

Consideration received from customers in respect of services is only recorded as revenue to the extent that the Group has performed its contractual obligations in respect of that consideration, and therefore it is expected that economic benefits will flow to the Group.

Product Revenue

Revenue from services and software licences for the use of the technology product is recognised over the period of the licence to reflect the on-going obligations of the Group. These revenues are recorded under product revenue per note 5 of the accounts.

Agency Project Fees

Revenue for project work by FWM is recognised over the term of the agreement and in the period that the services were delivered. These service revenues are recorded agency project fees to existing customers per note 5 of the accounts.

Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment is stated at cost, or deemed cost less accumulated depreciation, and any recognised impairment loss.

Depreciation is charged so as to write off the cost or valuation of assets less any residual value over their estimated useful lives on the following bases:

 

             Office equipment                 33% straight line

             Furniture and Fixtures       33% straight line

             Computer Hardware           33% straight line

             Computer Software             33% straight line 

 

Intangible assets

Intangible assets, representing amounts paid to third parties and internal resources for development of the Mporium SaaS Platform, are stated at cost, or deemed cost less accumulated amortisation, and any recognised impairment loss. A Software licence between Cxense ASA and the Company has been recognised as an intangible asset and amortised over the three-year licence. Further information on the accounting policy for Research and development activities is provided below. Intellectual property in the company is recognised as an intangible asset and amortised over three-years, it is stated at cost less accumulated amortisation.

Amortisation is charged to write off the cost of an asset less any residual value over their estimated useful lives and on the following basis:

             Development product         33% straight line

             Intellectual property          33% straight line

 

Depreciation and amortisation charges are included within administrative expenses in the statement of comprehensive Income.

Goodwill

All business combinations are accounted for by applying the acquisition method. Goodwill represents the excess of the consideration transferred over the fair value of the net assets and any contingent liabilities acquired. Acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. Goodwill arising on acquisitions is stated at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. Goodwill is allocated to cash-generating units and is tested annually for impairment.

Research and development activities

Expenditure on research or on the research phase of an internal project is recognised as an expense when incurred. The intangible assets arising from the development phase of an internal project are recognised if, and only if, the following conditions apply:

·      it is technically feasible to complete the asset for use by the Group;

·      the Group has the intention of completing the asset for either use or resale;

·      the Group has the ability to either use or sell the asset;

·      it is possible to estimate how the asset will generate income;

·      the Group has adequate financial, technical and other resources to develop and use the asset; and

·      the expenditure incurred to develop the asset is measurable.

 

If no intangible asset can be recognised based on the above, then development costs are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income in the period in which they are incurred.

Investments

Investments held by the Company in its subsidiary undertakings are stated at cost less provision for any impairment in value.

Available for sale financial assets (AFS)

AFS financial investments, being an equity instrument, are initially recognised at fair value with subsequent adjustments to fair value recognised in other comprehensive income.

Impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets

At each statement of financial position date, the Group reviews the carrying amounts of its property, plant and equipment and intangible assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss.

If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss (if any). Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Group estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs.

The recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects the current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. If the recoverable amount of an asset (or cash-generating unit) is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset (cash-generating unit) is reduced to its recoverable amount. An impairment loss is recognised immediately in the income statement and is included in the administrative expense.

Where an impairment loss subsequently reverses, the carrying amount of the asset (cash-generating unit) is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but so that the increased carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognised for the asset (cash-generating unit) in prior years. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognised immediately in the income statement.

Conversion of foreign currency

Monetary assets and liabilities in foreign currencies are translated into sterling at rates of exchange ruling at the statement of financial position date. Transactions in foreign currencies are translated into sterling at the rate of exchange ruling at the date of the transaction. Non-monetary assets having been translated are carried at their historical cost.

Exchange differences are recognised in the statement of total comprehensive income for the year.

Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised on the Group's statement of financial position when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

Trade and other receivables

Trade and other receivables are initially measured at fair value and subsequently carried at amortised cost less impairment. At the end of each accounting period they are assessed for impairment.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand that is readily convertible to a known amount of cash and are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

Financial liabilities and equity

Financial liabilities and equity instruments issued by the Group are classified according to the substance of the contractual arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability and an equity instrument. An equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of the Group after deducting all of its liabilities. The accounting policies adopted for specific financial liabilities and equity instruments are set out below.

Trade payables

Trade payables are initially measured at fair value and are subsequently measured at amortised cost, using the effective interest rate method.

Equity instruments

Equity instruments issued by the Group are recorded at the proceeds received, net of direct issue costs.

Commitments and contingencies

Commitments and contingent liabilities are disclosed in the financial statements unless the possibility of an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits is remote. A contingent asset is not recognised in the financial statements but disclosed when an inflow of economic benefits is probable.

Events after the statement of financial position date

Post year-end events that provide additional information about the Group's position at the statement of financial position date and adjusting events are reflected in the financial statements. Post year-end events that are not adjusting events are disclosed in the notes when material.

in the period in which they are incurred.

Taxation

Current taxation

Current tax assets and liabilities for the current and prior periods are measured at the amount expected to be recovered from or paid to the tax authorities. The tax rates and the tax laws used to compute the amount are those that are enacted, or substantively enacted, by the statement of financial position date.

Deferred taxation

Deferred tax is provided in full using the balance sheet liability method for all taxable temporary timing differences arising between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying values for financial reporting purposes. Deferred tax is measured using currently enacted or substantially enacted tax rates. Deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent the temporary difference will reverse in the foreseeable future and it is probable that future taxable profit will be available against which the asset can be utilised.

Leases

Operating lease payments are recognised as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term, except if another systematic basis is more representative of the time pattern in which economic benefits will flow to the Group.

Lease incentives and similar arrangements of incentives are taken into account when calculating the straight-lined expense.

Share-based payments

The Group operates equity-settled share-based remuneration plans for its employees and directors. None of the Group's plans are cash-settled. Where employees or directors are rewarded using share-based payments, the fair value of employees' services is determined indirectly by reference to the fair value of the equity instruments granted.

This fair value is appraised at the grant date and excludes the impact of non-market vesting conditions (for example profitability and sales growth targets and performance conditions).

All share-based remuneration is ultimately recognised as an expense in profit or loss with a corresponding credit to shareholders' equity. If vesting periods or other vesting conditions apply, the expense is allocated over the vesting period, based on the best available estimate of the number of share options expected to vest.

Non-market vesting conditions are included in assumptions about the number of options that are expected to become exercisable. Estimates are subsequently revised if there is any indication that the number of share options expected to vest differs from previous estimates.

Any cumulative adjustment prior to vesting is recognised in the current period. No adjustment is made to any expense recognised in prior periods if share options ultimately exercised are different to that estimated on vesting. Upon exercise of share options, the proceeds received net of any directly attributable transaction costs up to the nominal value of the shares issued are allocated to share capital with any excess being recorded as share premium.

As part of the process surrounding the acquisition of Mporium Limited by Mporium Group Plc, the holders of all outstanding options under the Mporium Limited Share Scheme surrendered those entitlements in exchange for the grant, by Mporium Group plc, of replacement options that were on equivalent terms.

The profit and loss impact of share options issued by Mporium Group plc is recognised in the company which receives the benefits from those employees who hold the share options.

 

Shareholder's Equity

Equity comprises:

Share capital - the nominal value of ordinary shares is classified as equity.

Share premium reserve - represents the excess over nominal value of the fair value of consideration received for equity shares, net of expenses of the share issue.

Share option reserve - represents equity settled share-based employee remuneration.

Other reserve - arising from the application of merger accounting following the principles of FRS 6.

Retained earnings - includes all current and prior period retained profits/(losses).

 

Employee benefits

The Group has agreed to make pension contributions to third party insurance companies in respect of certain employees at rates agreed with the individuals concerned. Such contributions are accounted for as they fall due on a defined contribution basis.

3    Critical accounting judgements and key estimation of uncertainty

 

Significant Judgements

The reduction in the fair value of the Available for Sale Financial Asset during the year is not considered to be a significant decline under IAS 39 due to the reasonable expectation that the performance of the asset will improve in future periods.

A provision has been made in full in the parent company accounts against amounts due from subsidiaries due to uncertainty over when the balances will be re-paid.

Accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise judgments in the process of applying the Group's accounting policies. Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and reasonable expectations of future events. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

The accounting policies cover areas that are considered by the Directors to require estimates and assumptions which have significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets & liabilities within the next financial year. The policies and the related notes to the financial statements are found below:

Recoverability of receivables (note 17)

The recoverability of the receivables is determined by the Group. Management monitors the circumstances relating to the payments due from third parties, together with the recoverability of the amounts due. Any indication of non-recoverability and change in fair value is adjusted for accordingly. Management feel comfortable with the current level of recoverability. Due to a small number of current clients and the closeness of those relationships recoverability is deemed to be low risk, as the number of clients increase and the direct relationship with these clients potentially change management will assess the situation again.

 

Impairment of Intangible assets and goodwill (note 14)

Intangible assets include the capitalised development costs of the Mporium Platform. These costs are assessed based on management's view of the internal and external development costs relating to time spent on projects that enhance the Mporium Platform, supported by internal time recording and considering the requirements of IAS 38 'Intangible assets'. The development cost of the product is amortised over the useful life of the asset. The useful life is based on the management's estimate of the period that the asset will generate revenue, which is reviewed annually for continued appropriateness. The carrying value is tested for impairment when there is an indication that the value of the assets might be impaired. When carrying out impairment tests these would be based upon future cash flow forecasts and these forecasts would be based upon management judgment. Future events could cause the assumptions to change; which could have an adverse effect on the future results of the Group.

An impairment review of the investment in FWM was performed by management through a discounted cash flow covering 5 years, growth in revenues have been assumed to be between 5 and 15%, this was used with a Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) of 15% , it was concluded no impairment was required to the business.

Share-based payments (note 23)

Share options are measured at their fair value using the Black-Scholes valuation model, which takes into account conditions attached to the vesting and exercise of the equity instruments. The expected life used in the model is adjusted, based on management's best estimate, for the effects of non-transferability, exercise restrictions and behavioural considerations.

Going concern (note 2)

The directors have prepared and reviewed a business plan and cash flow forecast. The forecast includes a fund raising and contains certain assumptions about the level of future sales and gross margin achievable. These assumptions are the Directors' best estimate of the future development of the business.

Deferred taxation - potential asset in relation to tax losses carried forward (note 11)

The recoverability of the tax losses carried forward to future accounting periods is determined by the Group. Management monitors the circumstances relating to the future profitability of the Group, together with the anticipated utilisation of the amounts carried forward. Any indication of non-recoverability and change in fair value is adjusted for accordingly. No such asset has been recognised in these financial statements.

4    Financial instruments and treasury risk management

 

         General objectives, policies and processes

The overall objective of the Board is to set policies that seek to reduce risk as far as possible without unduly affecting the Group's competitiveness and flexibility. All funding requirements and financial risks are managed based on policies and procedures adopted by the Board of directors. The Group does not use derivative financial instruments such as forward currency contracts, interest rate swaps or similar instruments.

The Group does not issue or use financial instruments of a speculative nature.

 

Principal financial instruments

The principal financial instruments used by the Group, from which financial instrument risk arises, are as follows:

·      Trade receivables;

·      Cash and cash equivalents;

·      Trade and other payables;

·      AFS financial assets

 

         Financial Assets

Trade and other receivables are initially measured at face value and subsequently at amortised cost. Book values and expected cash flows are reviewed by the Board and any impairment charged to the consolidated statement of comprehensive income in the relevant period.

Trade payables and accruals principally comprise amounts outstanding for trade purchases and ongoing costs. The Group targets the payments of trade payables between 30 to 90 days of receipt of the invoice.

Treasury risk management

The Group manages a variety of market risks, including the effects of changes in foreign exchange rates, liquidity and counterparty risks.

 

Credit risk

         The Group's principal financial assets are cash, trade and other receivables.

         The credit risk on liquid funds is limited because the counterparties are UK banks with high credit ratings assigned by international credit rating agencies.

         The Group currently operates with positive cash and cash equivalents as a result of issuing share capital in anticipation of future funding requirements. The Group's investment policy is therefore one of achieving high returns with minimal risks.

As at the year-end trade receivables of £42,692 were past due but not impaired (2016: £30,135).

Currency risks

         The Group's operations are located in the United Kingdom. The Group's transactions are primarily denominated in sterling with little exposure to foreign currency risks. Due to the limited risks to the Group, forward exchange contracts are not considered necessary and are not used. The Group does not operate foreign currency bank accounts.

         The translation risk on the Group's foreign exchange payables and receivables is considered to be immaterial due to their short-term nature.

Liquidity risk

         Operational cash flow represents on going trading revenue and costs, administrative costs and research and development activities. The Group manages its liquidity requirements by the use of both short-term and long-term cash flow forecasts. The Group's policy to ensure facilities are available as required is to issue equity share capital in accordance with long-term cash flow forecasts.

   The financial market turbulence and associated illiquidity in credit markets during the year has had no impact on the Group's ability to meet its financing requirements.

   The Group actively manages its working finance to ensure it has sufficient funds for operations and planned research and development activities.

The Group's main financial liabilities are trade and other payables. All amounts are due for payment in accordance with agreed settlement terms with suppliers or statutory deadlines.

 

Derivative financial instruments

   The Group does not currently use derivative financial instruments as hedging is not considered necessary. Should the Group identify a requirement for the future use of such financial instruments, a comprehensive set of policies and systems as approved by the directors will be implemented.

In accordance with IAS 39, "Financial instruments: recognition and measurement", the Group has reviewed all contracts for embedded derivatives that are required to be separately accounted for if they do not meet specific requirements set out in the standard.

Capital management

   The Group's activities are of a type and stage of development where the most suitable capital structure to continue as a going concern is that of entirely financed by equities. The directors will reassess the future capital structure when projects under development are sufficiently advanced. The Group considers its capital to consist of share capital.

   The Group's financial strategy is to utilise its resources and current trading revenue streams to further appraise and test the Group's research and development projects. Mporium Group plc keeps investors informed of its progress with its projects through regular announcements and raises additional equity finance at appropriate times.

5    Operating segments

 

         The Group's operations are centred on providing software as service and supporting services. Revenues and results are reported to the Chief Operating Decision Maker on this basis and management therefore considers there to be one reporting segment covering the Group.

Reconciliation of the tax credit

The tax credit for the year is lower (2016: lower) than the tax credit on ordinary activities at the standard rate of corporation tax in the UK (2017: 19.25% and 2016: 20%) for the reasons set out in the following reconciliation.

As at 31 December 2017 Mporium Group plc has trading tax losses available to be carried forward totalling £20,342,487 (2016: £26,386,568). Given the current position of the Group it is considered that there is not sufficient certainty over the utilisation of tax losses carried forward in order to recognise a deferred tax asset in the financial statements.

12  Loss per share

 

Diluted loss per share is calculated after showing the effect of outstanding options in issue. As the effect of the options would be to reduce the loss per share there is no requirement to disclose a diluted loss per share.

Calculation of loss per share is based on the following loss and numbers of shares:

Internal Intangibles

During 2017, the product IMPACT has been further developed with scalability at the forefront, through a combination of the use of an outsource partner Xoomworks, and through the recruitment of an in-house development team and consultants. Under the guidance of a new CTO starting in November 2017, Mporium has continued with an agile methodology approach to the development of the new IMPACT product. This approach, which relies heavily on market and customer feedback, enables us to refine the product and react quickly to customer demand.

Goodwill

The goodwill has been allocated to the Fast Web Media Cash Generating Unit. An impairment review of the investment in FWM was performed through a discounted cash flow covering the next 5 years with a terminal growth rate to perpetuity. FWM has re-aligned and turned its business performance around to complement the Group's vision of the digital marketing agency of the future, following a relatively stagnant period for the business. They re-launched with Mporium Group technology at the core of the FWM offering. The Cash Flow included a discounted terminal value to reflect the value of ongoing operations of the business. This was calculated using a 2.0% growth rate in line with GDP at the time. Revenue growth has been included at a rate of between 5% to 20% over the 5 year period.  A Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) of 15% was used and it was concluded that no impairment was required to the goodwill.

Other Intangibles

The licence of Cxense software continued to be amortised over the 3-year licence period.

23  Share-based payments

 

The first share option scheme was adopted by the then parent company, Mporium Limited, on 17 October 2008. Further schemes were adopted by the Group on 24 April 2013, 27 February 2014, 22 May 2014 and 8 June 2015. The schemes were established to attract and retain the best available personnel for positions of responsibility, to provide additional incentive to employees or officers of the Company and to promote the success of the Company's business.

As part of the process surrounding the acquisition of Mporium Limited by Mporium Group Plc, the holders of all outstanding options under the Mporium Limited Share Scheme surrendered their entitlements in exchange for the grant, by Mporium Group plc, of replacement options that were on equivalent terms. All share options are valued on the same basis as before.

The share option schemes are administered by the directors of Mporium Group Plc.

Share options are issued as part of a long-term incentive scheme ("LTIS") or in lieu of salary or bonus due. LTIS options typically vest 3 years from the date of issue, however, some options issued under the 2015 Share Option Scheme vest in equal amounts on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd anniversaries of the issue date. Vesting is contingent upon the option-holder being an employee of the company at the vesting date. All options have a maximum term of 10 years. A summary of options, movements and average prices are shown in the table below.
