CEO Review

 

 

 

Introduction

 

2018 was a landmark year for Induction as we embarked on our journey to help healthcare professionals streamline the delivery of care. The Group's technology enables healthcare professionals to save time and deliver care more effectively and healthcare institutions to identify ways to allocate resources more efficiently. The Group is initially targeting improving the way healthcare professionals communicate with each other, through its mobile application (''App''), Induction Switch. Induction Switch is an App that provides a telephone directory (allowing healthcare professionals to easily find extension numbers), messaging and an administration portal (to share and view hospital guidelines), all in a secure and regulatory compliant setting.

 

Business review

 

Key Performance Indicators as at 31 March 2019:

 

·      79,649 registered users, an increase of 38% over the last six months;

·      40,765 average monthly users in the month of March 2019;

·      users looked up 6.3m numbers in the directory, made 1.3m calls using Induction Switch and looked up 40,654 guidelines during the last 12 months

·      45% of NHS hospital doctors and 14% of all NHS healthcare professionals use Induction Switch;

·      584 UK healthcare institutions and 140 overseas healthcare institutions using Induction Switch; and

·      174 private workspaces set up with 1,423 "Level 1" users.

 

During the Period the Company was focusing on growing its user base, building out the Induction Switch functionality and securing the funds post-Period-end via an IPO to begin to deliver on the Group's strategy.

 

Growing the user base

 

As at 31 March 2019 Induction Switch had 79,649 registered users, primarily in the UK, including 52,338 doctors, General Practitioners and consultants, 15,611 nurses and 11,700 other healthcare professionals. The user base has been growing rapidly largely through word of mouth between healthcare professionals.

 

From a geographic perspective, as at 31 March 2019, 74,733 (94%) of the Group's registered users were based in the UK, 1,723 (2%) in the US, 1,557 (2%) in South Africa, 832 (1%) in Malta, 677 (1%) in Australia and 127 (0.2%) elsewhere. Aside from Australia and the UK, where the Group has a commercial presence, the user base in all of the other geographies has grown through word of mouth, demonstrating the need for a product such as Induction Switch.

 

As at 31 March 2019, the Group's users were based in 724 healthcare institutions. Within this user base, there were 42 healthcare institutions with more than 500 Induction Switch users, demonstrating both the breadth and depth of current penetration.

 

The Group launched private workspaces in September 2018 and by 31 March 2019 174 private workspaces had been created. As at 31 March 2019 there were 1,423 users in the private workspaces also known as "Level 1" users, with 857 having joined in the last two months of this financial year as the Group has started to focus on increasing user numbers in Level 1 workspaces ahead of the full commercial launch of messaging. Level 1 access is free to users.

 

Over the next year, the Group is planning to launch a number of premium features that will only be accessible to users paying a monthly fee. Users subscribing to these premium features are known as ''Level 2'' users.

 

One of the Group's strengths is that it has an engaged user base and it is focused on making sure that Induction Switch's value proposition remains highly current for all of its users. The Group does this by engaging with users on a regular basis and designing product "blueprints" that helps individual users and groups of users in Level 1 workspaces get the most from Induction Switch. This engagement is demonstrated both by the high average monthly user numbers and by what the Directors believe are industry leading retention rates, with an average of more than 60% of users retained for more than 6 months.

 

Building out Induction Switch's functionality

 

During the Period to 31 March 2019 the Group made a significant investment in its technology platform, acquiring the intellectual property rights to the MedX secure messaging app. This allowed the Group to bring together the original MedX technology platform developed as part of the proof of concept in Australia with the well-established Induction Switch App in the UK, launching the first generation of the combined application in August 2018. The second generation App incorporating, amongst other features, instant messaging was launched in late March 2019.

 

The Group also invested in the Company's technology backbone, with a view to creating a scalable and reliable platform capable of servicing the healthcare market. The Groups technology infrastructure has been designed to cater for country specific regulations and data sovereignty.

 

In addition, the Group has undergone a positive independent audit by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance for the purpose of certification in ISO9001:2015 and ISO27001:2013 to cover the required activities in the provision of software products in a secure manner. This initial audit took place in January 2019 and the Group's certification to both standards was approved in March 2019.

 

 

Successful IPO for future growth

 

In April 2019, the shareholders in the Company executed a share for share exchange whereby Induction Healthcare Group PLC acquired 100% of the share capital of the Company and in May 2019 Induction Healthcare Group PLC successfully completed its Initial Public Offering (the "IPO") on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange. This, together with a private placing completed just ahead of the IPO, raised gross proceeds of £16.6m. These funds will be used for working capital and to fund the cash consideration of acquisitions.

 

The Company would like to thank its shareholders, employees and advisors for their support. The IPO was achieved against a backdrop of challenging market conditions and continued uncertainty with regard to the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union.

 

 

Growth strategy

The Group's strategy is to leverage its 79,649 (as at 31 March 2019) registered and fast growing user base of healthcare professionals as a way to bring technology to healthcare delivery at the grass roots level. The Directors' intention is to grow the Group's number of users, its breadth of technological functionality and its geographic reach through a buy and build strategy.

 

 

Current trading and outlook

Trading since the Period end has been positive. Registered users have increased from 79,649 to 94,020 as at 25 July 2019, growth of just over 18% since the Period end. Moreover, the number of private workspaces and "Level 1" users in those workspaces have increased by 21% and 42% respectively, to 210 and 2,022, with the Group continuing to focus on building an engaged user base.

 

Induction Switch messaging functionality was launched in March 2019 and is currently being trialled in a handful of workspaces. The initial user reaction has been positive, and the plan remains to roll it out to a broader user base during the current financial year.

 

The Group continues to make progress expanding Induction Switch functionality and whilst it has taken slightly longer than expected to resolve some of the technical teething issues, premium features are still planned to be launched during the current financial year. The freemium business model has been well received by healthcare professionals and the initial signs are encouraging, both in terms of the value proposition and the Group's ability to access funding pools as it seeks to upgrade users to "Level 2".

 

The Group has an active pipeline of acquisition targets, in line with its strategy to pursue acquisitions that add new and complementary products, users and geographies.

1.     Accounting policies

Induction Healthcare Limited is a private company incorporated, domiciled and registered in England in the UK. Its principal activity is the provision of software to healthcare professionals. The registered number is 11232772 and the registered address is Wework c/o Induction Healthcare, 12 Hammersmith Grove, London, United Kingdom, W6 7AP.

 

These financial statements include the consolidated financial information of Induction Healthcare Limited (the "Company") and its subsidiaries (together referred to as the "Group").  Details of Induction Healthcare Limited's subsidiaries are included in Note 9. The Group has only one reportable segment.

 

Both the financial statements of the Group and the financial statements of the company have been prepared and approved by the Directors in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the EU ("Adopted IFRSs"). Under s408 of the Companies Act 2006 the company is exempt from the requirement to present its own profit and loss account. This is the first period for which financial statements have been prepared.

 

Judgements made by the Directors, in the application of these accounting policies that have significant effect on the financial statements and estimates with a significant risk of material adjustment in the next year are discussed in Note 22.

 

The financial information included in this preliminary statement has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union. The information in this preliminary statement has been extracted from the Group's annual report and consolidated financial statements for the Period ended 31 March 2019 and the accounting policies applied, and the judgements, estimates and assumptions made in applying these policies, are consistent with those used in preparing the annual report and consolidated financial statements. This preliminary statement does not constitute statutory consolidated financial statements for the Period ended 31 March 2019 as defined under section 434 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

The Group's annual report and consolidated financial statements for the period ended 31 March 2019 were approved by the Board of Directors on 29 July 2019. The report of the auditor on those financial statements was unqualified, did not contain an emphasis of matter paragraph and did not contain any statement under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006. The annual report and consolidated financial statements for the Period ended 31 March 2019 will be filed with the Registrar in due course.

 

1.1    Measurement convention

 

These financial statements are prepared on the historical cost basis except that other financial assets and liabilities are stated at fair value.

 

1.2    Going concern

For the Period ended 31 March 2019, the Group made a loss of £2,748,563 and had net current liabilities of £2,684,006. The following matters have been considered by the Directors in determining the appropriateness of the going concern basis of preparation in these financial statements:

 

(a)   On 1 April 2019, the shareholders in Induction Healthcare Limited executed a share for share exchange whereby Induction Healthcare Group PLC acquired 100% of the share capital of Induction Healthcare Limited

(b)   On 30 April 2019 and 1 May 2019, Mr Peter Davies and the Induction Healthcare Group PLC entered into a subscription letter and confirmation letter pursuant to which Peter Davies agreed to subscribe for 1,739,130 Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Induction Healthcare Group PLC at a price of £1.15 per share raising £2,000,000;

(c)   On 22 May 2019, Numis Securities Placed 12,681,915 shares in Induction Healthcare Group PLC at a price of £1.15 per share with a range of investors raising £14,584,202. These funds were paid into an Induction Healthcare Limited bank account increasing the intercompany balance between Induction Healthcare Limited and Induction Healthcare Group PLC. The intercompany balance is repayable on demand with an interest rate of 0%.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

Induction Healthcare Group PLC has provided a letter of support to Induction Healthcare Limited expressing its intentions to continue to provide financial and other support, including not seeking repayment of amounts currently made available through intercompany loans, for at least twelve months from the date of signing these financial statements. As with any company placing reliance on other group entities for financial support, the directors acknowledge that there can be no certainty that this support will continue although, at the date of approval of these financial statements, they have no reason to believe that it will not do so. Further, the directors are of the opinion that no asset is likely to be realised for an amount less than the amount at which it is recorded in these financial statements as at 31 March 2019. Consequently, the Directors are confident that the Group and Company will have sufficient funds to continue to meet their liabilities as they fall due for at least twelve months from the date of approval of the financial statements and therefore have prepared the financial statements on a going concern basis.

 

1.3    Basis of consolidation

 

                Subsidiaries

Subsidiaries are entities controlled by the Group. The Group controls an entity when it is exposed to, or has rights to, variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the entity. In assessing control, the Group takes into consideration potential voting rights. The acquisition date is the date on which control is transferred to the acquirer. The financial information of subsidiaries is included in these financial statements from the date that control commences until the date that control ceases. Losses applicable to the non-controlling interests in a subsidiary are allocated to the non-controlling interests even if doing so causes the non-controlling interests to have a deficit balance.

 

                Change in subsidiary ownership and loss of control

 

Changes in the Group's interest in a subsidiary that do not result in a loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions.

 

Where the Group loses control of a subsidiary, the assets and liabilities are derecognised along with any related non-controlling interest and other components of equity.  Any resulting gain or loss is recognised in profit or loss.  Any interest retained in the former subsidiary is measured at fair value when control is lost.

 

                Transactions eliminated on consolidation

 

Intra-group balances and transactions, and any unrealised income and expenses arising from intra-group transactions, are eliminated. Unrealised gains arising from transactions with equity-accounted investees are eliminated against the investment to the extent of the Group's interest in the investee. Unrealised losses are eliminated in the same way as unrealised gains, but only to the extent that there is no evidence of impairment.

 

1.4    Foreign currency

 

Transactions in foreign currencies are translated to the respective functional currencies of Group entities at the foreign exchange rate ruling at the date of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the consolidated balance sheet date are retranslated to the functional currency at the foreign exchange rate ruling at that date. Foreign exchange differences arising on translation are recognised in the consolidated income statement. Non-monetary assets and liabilities that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Non-monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies that are stated at fair value are retranslated to the functional currency at foreign exchange rates ruling at the dates the fair value was determined.

 

The functional currency of the Company is Sterling. The assets and liabilities of foreign operations with functional currencies other than Sterling, including fair value adjustments arising on consolidation, are translated to the Group's presentational currency, Sterling, at foreign exchange rates ruling at the consolidated balance sheet date. The revenues and expenses of foreign operations are translated at an average rate for the year where this rate approximates to the foreign exchange rates ruling at the dates of the transactions.

 

Exchange differences arising from this translation of foreign operations are reported as an item of other comprehensive income and accumulated in the translation reserve.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

Exchange differences arising from a monetary item receivable from or payable to a foreign operation, the settlement of which is neither planned nor likely in the foreseeable future, are considered to form part of a net investment in a foreign operation and are recognised directly in equity in the translation reserve.

 

When a foreign operation is disposed of in its entirety or partially such that control is lost, the cumulative amount in the translation reserve related to that foreign operation is reclassified to profit or loss as part of the gain or loss on disposal.

 

1.5    Fair value measurement

 

Financial instruments measured at fair value are classified into a fair value hierarchy based on the valuation technique used to determine fair value as follows:

 

·    Level 1: quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

·    Level 2: inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e., as prices) or indirectly (i.e., derived from prices)

·    Level 3: inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

 

If the inputs used to measure the fair value of an asset or a liability fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy, then the fair value measurement is categorised in its entirety in the same level of the fair value hierarchy as the lowest level input that is significant to the entire measurement.

 

1.6    Classification of financial instruments issued by the Group

 

Financial instruments issued by the Group are treated as equity only to the extent that they meet the following two conditions:

 

(a)           they include no contractual obligations upon the Group to deliver cash or other financial assets or to exchange financial assets or financial liabilities with another party under conditions that are potentially unfavourable to the Group; and

(b)           where the instrument will or may be settled in Induction Healthcare Limited's own equity instruments, it is either a non-derivative that includes no obligation to deliver a variable number of Induction Healthcare Limited's own equity instruments or is a derivative that will be settled by the company exchanging a fixed amount of cash or other financial assets for a fixed number of its own equity instruments.

 

To the extent that this definition is not met, the proceeds of issue are classified as a financial liability.  Where the instrument so classified takes the legal form of Induction Healthcare Limited's own shares, the amounts presented in the financial statements for called up share capital and share premium account exclude amounts in relation to those shares. 

 

1.7    Financial instruments

 

                Recognition and initial measurement

 

Non-derivative financial instruments comprise other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, loans and borrowings, and trade and other payables. All financial assets and liabilities are initially recognised when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial assets and liabilities are initially measured at fair value plus, for items measured at amortised cost, transaction costs directly attributable to its acquisition or issue.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1.     Accounting policies (continued)

 

                Financial assets - classification and subsequent measurement

 

On initial recognition, a financial asset is classified as measured at amortised cost or fair value through profit or loss ("FVTPL"). The Group has no financial assets measured at fair value through other comprehensive income ("FVOCI"). A financial asset is measured at amortised cost if it is both: held within a business model whose objective is to hold assets to collect contractual cash flows; and its contractual terms give rise to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the amount outstanding. For the purposes of this assessment, "principal" is defined as the fair value of the financial asset on initial recognition, and "interest" is defined as consideration for the time value of money and for the credit risk associated with the principal amount outstanding. In assessing whether the contractual cash flows are solely payments of principal and interest, the Group considers the contractual terms of the instrument, including any terms which may affect the timing or amount of contractual cash flows. All financial assets not measured at amortised cost are measured at FVTPL.

 

Financial assets at FVTPL are subsequently measured at fair value with net gains and losses, including any interest or dividend income, recognised in profit or loss. Financial assets measured at amortised cost are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. The amortised cost is reduced by impairment losses.

 

Interest income, foreign exchange gains and losses, and impairment are recognised in profit or loss. Any gain or loss on derecognition is recognised in profit or loss.

 

                Financial liabilities - classification and subsequent measurement

 

Financial liabilities are classified as measured at amortised cost or FVTPL. A financial liability is classified as at FVTPL if it is classified as held-for-trading, it is a derivative or it is designated as such on initial recognition. Financial liabilities at FVTPL are measured at fair value and net gains and losses, including any interest expense, are recognised in profit or loss. All other financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Interest expense and foreign exchange gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss. Any gain or loss on derecognition is also recognised in profit or loss.

 

                Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash balances and call deposits. Bank overdrafts that are repayable on demand and form an integral part of the Group's cash management are included as a component of cash and cash equivalents for the purpose only of the consolidated cash flow statement.

 

                Derivative financial instruments and other financial assets

 

Other financial assets comprise call options. Options are initially classified as FVTPL and recognised at fair value based on the consideration paid for the option. Subsequently, the options are measured at fair value and the gain or loss on remeasurement to fair value is recognised immediately in profit or loss.

 

                Business model assessment

 

The Group makes an assessment of the objective of the business model in which a financial asset is held at a portfolio level as this best reflects the way the business is managed and information provided to management. The assessment includes consideration of the stated objectives of the portfolio, the performance of the portfolio, the risks that affect the performance of the business model, and the frequency, volume and timing of sales of financial assets.

 

                Derecognition

 

The Group derecognises a financial asset when the contractual rights to receive cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the rights to receive the contractual cash flows in a transaction in which substantially all of the risks and rewards of ownership are transferred.

 

The Group derecognises a financial liability when its contractual obligations are discharged or cancelled, or expire.

 

1.8    Business combinations

 

All business combinations are accounted for by applying the acquisition method. Business combinations are accounted for using the acquisition method as at the acquisition date, which is the date on which control is transferred to the Group.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

The Group measures goodwill at the acquisition date as:

 

·    the fair value of the consideration transferred; plus

·    the recognised amount of any non-controlling interests in the acquiree; plus

·    the fair value of the existing equity interest in the acquiree; less

·    the net recognised amount (generally fair value) of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed.

 

When the excess is negative, a bargain purchase gain is recognised immediately in profit or loss.

 

Costs related to the acquisition, other than those associated with the issue of debt or equity securities, are expensed as incurred.

 

Any contingent consideration payable is recognised at fair value at the acquisition date. If the contingent consideration is classified as equity, it is not remeasured and settlement is accounted for within equity. Otherwise, subsequent changes to the fair value of the contingent consideration are recognised in profit or loss.

 

On a transaction-by-transaction basis, the Group elects to measure non-controlling interests, which have both present ownership interests and are entitled to a proportionate share of net assets of the acquiree in the event of liquidation, either at its fair value or at its proportionate interest in the recognised amount of the identifiable net assets of the acquiree at the acquisition date. All other non-controlling interests are measured at their fair value at the acquisition date.

 

1.9    Company investment in subsidiaries

 

Investments in subsidiaries are included in the Company balance sheet at cost less any provision for impairment.

 

1.10 Intangible assets

 

                Research and development

 

Expenditure on research activities is recognised in the consolidated income statement as an expense as incurred.

 

Expenditure on development activities is capitalised if the product or process is technically and commercially feasible and the Group intends to and has the technical ability and sufficient resources to complete development, future economic benefits are probable and if the Group can measure reliably the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development. Development activities involve a plan or design for the production of new or substantially improved products or processes.  The expenditure capitalised includes the cost of materials, direct labour and an appropriate proportion of overheads and capitalised borrowing costs. Other development expenditure is recognised in the consolidated income statement as an expense as incurred. Capitalised development expenditure is stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and less accumulated impairment losses.

 

                Other intangible assets

 

Expenditure on internally generated goodwill and brands is recognised in the consolidated income statement as an expense as incurred. Other intangible assets that are acquired by the Group are stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses.

 

1.11 Amortisation

 

Amortisation is charged to the consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of intangible assets unless such lives are indefinite. Intangible assets with an indefinite useful life and goodwill are systematically tested for impairment at each balance sheet date. Other intangible assets are amortised from the date they are available for use. The estimated useful lives are as follows:

 

·    patents and trademarks               

up to 5 years

·    capitalised development costs

up to 5 years

·    other intellectual property

up to 5 years

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

1.12 Impairment

 

                Non-derivative financial assets

 

                The Group recognises loss allowances for expected credit losses ("ECLs") on financial assets measured at amortised cost. The Group measures loss allowances at an amount equal to lifetime ECLs, except for cash and cash equivalents which is measured using 12-month ECLs. ECLs are a probability-weighted estimate of credit losses and are measured as the present value of all cash shortfalls expected on financial assets, using the effective interest rate of the financial asset. Lifetime ECLs are the ECLs which result from all possible default events over the expected life of a financial instrument. When determining ECLs, the Group considers reasonable and supportable qualitative and quantitative information that is relevant and available without undue cost or effort. The Group considers a financial  asset to be in default when the borrower is unlikely to pay its obligations to the Group in full without recourse by the Group to actions such as realising security (if any held) or when the financial asset is more than 90 days overdue.

 

                Loss allowances for financial assets measured at amortised cost are deducted from the gross carrying amount of the assets. The carrying amount of a financial asset is written off when the Group has no reasonable expectation of recovering a financial asset in its entirety or a portion thereof.

 

                Non-financial assets

 

The carrying amounts of the Group's non-financial 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 intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives or that are not yet available for use, the recoverable amount is estimated each period end.

 

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 the risks specific to the asset. For the purpose of impairment testing, assets that cannot be tested individually 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" or "CGU").

 

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

 

1.13 Employee benefits

 

                Short term employee benefits

 

                Short term employee benefits are expensed as the related service is provided. A liability is recognised if the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation to pay an amount as a result of past employee service and the obligation can be estimated reliably.

 

                Defined contribution plans

 

A defined contribution plan is a post-employment benefit plan under which the company pays fixed contributions into a separate entity and will have no legal or constructive obligation to pay further amounts. Obligations for contributions to defined contribution pension plans are recognised as an expense in the consolidated income statement in the periods during which services are rendered by employees.

 

                Share-based payment transactions

 

Share-based payment arrangements in which the Group receives goods or services as consideration for its own equity instruments are accounted for as equity-settled share-based payment transactions, regardless of how the equity instruments are obtained by the Group.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

The grant date fair value of share-based payment awards granted to employees is recognised as an employee expense, with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period that the employees become unconditionally entitled to the awards.  The fair value of the options granted is measured using an option valuation model, taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the options were granted.  The amount recognised as an expense is adjusted to reflect the actual number of awards for which the related service and non-market vesting conditions are expected to be met, such that the amount ultimately recognised as an expense is based on the number of awards that do meet the related service and non-market performance conditions at the vesting date. For share-based payment awards with market and non-vesting conditions, the grant date fair value of the share-based payment is measured to reflect such conditions and there is no true-up for differences between expected and actual outcomes.

 

Share-based payment transactions in which the Group receives goods or services by incurring a liability to transfer cash or other assets that is based on the price of the Group's equity instruments are accounted for as cash-settled share-based payments.  The fair value of the amount payable to employees is recognised as an expense, with a corresponding increase in liabilities, over the period in which the employees become unconditionally entitled to payment. The liability is remeasured at each balance sheet date and at settlement date. Any changes in the fair value of the liability are recognised as personnel expenses in profit or loss.

 

1.14 Provisions

 

A provision is recognised in the consolidated balance sheet when the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of a past event, that can be reliably measured and it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre-tax rate that reflects risks specific to the liability.

 

1.15 Revenue

 

Revenue comprises the fair value of consideration received or receivable for access to Induction Switch, the Group's proprietary application which facilitates communication between healthcare professionals, in the ordinary course of the Group's activities. Revenue is shown net of value added tax and trade discounts and is reported as follows:

 

·      On a per-user basis whereby users are charged a monthly fee to access Induction Switch, with the pricing depending on the features selected by users. Invoices are issued monthly and settled via a credit or debit card. Revenue is recognised on a monthly basis reflecting the period during which they have access to Induction Switch.

·      On a healthcare institution basis whereby healthcare institutions are charged a subscription for making Induction Switch available to users. This revenue is recognised rateably over the period of the subscription.

 

1.16 Expenses

 

                Cost of sales

 

Cost of sales consists of the direct costs associated with Induction Switch, the Group's proprietary application, including costs incurred for server hosting and data population.

 

                Operating lease payments

 

Payments made under operating leases are recognised in the consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Lease incentives received are recognised in the consolidated income statement as an integral part of the total lease expense.         

 

                Financial income

 

Financing expenses comprise interest payable, finance charges on shares classified as liabilities and finance leases recognised in profit or loss using the effective interest method, unwinding of the discount on provisions, and net foreign exchange losses that are recognised in the income statement (see foreign currency accounting policy).  Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of an asset that takes a substantial time to be prepared for use, are capitalised as part of the cost of that asset. Financial income comprises interest receivable on loans issued by the Group and is recognised in profit or loss as it accrues, using the effective interest method. Foreign currency gains and losses are reported on a net basis.

 

 

 

 

 

Notes (continued)

 

1              Accounting policies (continued)

 

1.17 Taxation

 

Tax on the profit or loss for the period comprises current and deferred tax. Tax is recognised in the consolidated income statement except to the extent that it relates to items recognised directly in equity, in which case it is recognised in equity.

 

Current tax is the expected tax payable or receivable on the taxable income or loss for the period, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date, and any adjustment to tax payable in respect of previous periods.

 

Deferred tax is provided on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for taxation purposes. The following temporary differences are not provided for: the initial recognition of goodwill; the initial recognition of assets or liabilities that affect neither accounting nor taxable profit other than in a business combination, and differences relating to investments in subsidiaries to the extent that they will probably not reverse in the foreseeable future. The amount of deferred tax provided is based on the expected manner of realisation or settlement of the carrying amount of assets and liabilities, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.

 

A deferred tax asset is recognised only to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the temporary difference can be utilised. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each reporting date and recognised to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profits will be available against which they can be used.

 

1.18 Adopted IFRS not yet applied

 

The following Adopted IFRSs have been issued but have not been applied by the Group in these financial statements. Their adoption is not expected to have a material effect on the financial statements unless otherwise indicated:

 

·    IFRS 16 Leases (effective date 1 January 2019) - the Group has no leases which would fall within the scope of IFRS 16.

·    IFRIC 22 Foreign Currency Transactions and Advance Consideration (effective date to be confirmed).

·    IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments (effective date to be confirmed).

·    Annual Improvements to IFRS Standards 2014-2016 Cycle (effective date to be confirmed).

·    Amendments to IFRS 2: Classification and Measurement of Share-based Payment Transactions (effective date to be confirmed).

Risk management (continued)

 

All financial instruments measured at fair value are considered to be Level 3 financial instruments in the fair value hierarchy. Other financial assets comprise the cost of an option to acquire either the shares or the assets of Podmedics Limited in exchange for consideration of £400,000 satisfied in either shares or cash.  Whilst no formal valuation process was undertaken, the option was recognised initially at cost, which represented the market value at the time that the option was acquired. Given as at 31 March 2019 no formal decision has been made with regard to whether to exercise the option and that there has been no material change in the trading of Podmedics between the time of the acquisition of the option and the Period end, the Directors have concluded that there has been no material change in the fair value of the option. There are no significant unobservable inputs used in the valuation of the option.

 

 

The Group has exposure to the following principal financial risks in the operation and management of its

business:

 

(i) Liquidity risk;

(ii) Credit risk; and

(iii) Financial risk.

 

Liquidity risk

 

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Group will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. The Group's treasury policies are designed to ensure that sufficient cash is available to support current and future business requirements. Cash management is a core feature of the Group's business model and rolling cash flow forecasts, updated on at least a monthly basis, are reviewed to manage these requirements. At 31 March 2019, the contractual maturity of all financial liabilities other than loans and borrowings was less than 2 months. The Director loan is repayable in the event of an Initial Public Offering or a financing which raises not less than £20m in equity or a sale of a controlling interest or substantially the whole of the assets to a third party purchaser. See Subsequent Events Note 21 for more details. Contractual cash flows are equal to the carrying amounts of financial liabilities.

 

Credit risk

 

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Group if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations and arises principally from the Group's receivables from customers and investment securities. The Group's principal financial assets are cash and cash equivalents, other financial assets, and other receivables, the carrying values of which represent the Group's maximum exposure to credit risk in relation to financial assets, as shown in this note. The Group's credit risk is primarily attributable to its cash and cash equivalents. The credit risk arising from cash and cash equivalents is limited because the counterparties are banks with triple-A credit ratings assigned by international credit-rating agencies.

 

Market risk

 

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices, such as foreign exchange rates, interest rates and equity prices will affect the Group's income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. Interest rate risk is not considered to be material to the Group.

Risk management (continued)

 

The Groups main exposure is to the United States dollar and the Australian dollar. However, the Group's exposure is limited as the sums involved are relatively small. The Group has a bank account denominated in Australian dollars and the Group's exposure to foreign exchange risk is limited by ensuring the Group has enough cash in this account to cover approximately six months of expenditure. The Group's exposure to foreign currency risk is as follows. This is based on the carrying amount for monetary financial instruments other financial assets and liabilities based on notional amounts. Sensitivity analysis has not been presented as the effects of reasonably possible strengthening or weakening of the foreign currencies below would not have a material impact on the Group's financial information.

21.  Subsequent events

 

On 1 April 2019, the Group went through a reorganisation where the following happened:

 

·      The shareholders in Induction Healthcare Limited executed a share for share exchange whereby Induction Healthcare Group PLC acquired 100% of the share capital of Induction Healthcare Limited in consideration for the issues share in Induction Healthcare Group PLC to the shareholders of Induction Healthcare Limited on the basis of one ordinary share in Induction Healthcare Group PLC for each ordinary share in Induction Healthcare Limited.

·      Induction Healthcare Limited issued a loan note to Hugo Stephenson replacing the outstanding £2.5m Directors loan facility as at 1 April 2019. Shortly thereafter Induction Healthcare Group PLC agreed to acquire this loan note from Hugo Stephenson in exchange for the issue by Induction Healthcare Group PLC of a loan note in the same amount (the "Company Loan Note").

 

On the 30 April 2019 and 1 May 2019, Mr Peter Davies and the Induction Healthcare Group PLC entered into a subscription letter and confirmation letter pursuant to which Peter Davies agreed to subscribe for 1,739,130 Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Induction Healthcare Group PLC at a price of £1.15 per share, raising £2,000,000.

 

On 7 May 2019, the Induction Healthcare Group PLC carried out a share split such that that each of the existing issued ordinary shares of £1 each in the capital of the Company was sub-divided into 200 ordinary shares of 0.5 pence.

 

On 7 May 2019 the Induction Healthcare Group PLC and Hugo Stephenson agreed to amend the Company Loan Note Instrument to permit the Induction Healthcare Group PLC and Hugo Stephenson to agree to the conversion of all or part of the loan notes into Ordinary Shares and to provide that the loan notes (to the extent not converted) are repayable by the Induction Healthcare Group PLC within 5 business days of a financing pursuant to which the Group raises not less than £10 million of equity financing.  On the same day Hugo Stephenson and the Induction Healthcare Group PLC entered into a subscription letter pursuant to which Hugo Stephenson agreed to subscribe for 1,739,130 Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Induction Healthcare Group PLC at a price of £1.15 per share (the aggregate subscription price therefore being £2,000,000), such subscription price to be satisfied by the conversion of £2,000,000 of the loan notes.

 

On 7 May 2019, Dr Edward Wallitt, Induction Healthcare Limited and the Podmedics Limited entered into a share purchase agreement pursuant to which Induction Healthcare Limited acquired the entire issued share capital of Podmedics Limited (06840040) from Dr Edward Wallitt. The consideration payable under the share purchase agreement was £400,000 which was satisfied following Admission by the issue by the Company to Dr Edward Wallitt of 347,826 Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Induction Healthcare Group PLC. Pursuant to the share purchase agreement, Dr Edward Wallitt granted customary warranties and a tax deed to Induction Healthcare Limited. The primary reason for the acquisition was to bring under the Group's control all of the assets and intellectual property relating to Induction Switch. The intangibles fair value relating to the acquisition of Podmedics Limited had not been completed at the date that these accounts were approved therefore the remaining disclosures required under IFRS3 Business Combinations has not been presented in these financial statements.

 

On 22 May 2019, Numis Securities Placed 12,681,915 shares in Induction Healthcare Group PLC at a price of £1.15 per share with a range of investors raising £14,584,202. These funds were paid into an Induction Healthcare Limited bank account increasing the intercompany balance between Induction Healthcare Limited and Induction Healthcare Group PLC. The intercompany balance is repayable on demand.

 

 

 

 

 

22.  Accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of financial information in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Significant items subject to such assumption and estimate include the useful economic life of assets and the measurement and recognition of provisions. Actual results could differ from these estimates and any subsequent changes are accounted for with an effect on income at the time such updated information becomes available.

 

The most critical accounting policies in determining the financial condition and results of the Group are

those requiring the greatest degree of subjective or complex judgement. These relate to valuation of acquired intangible assets and other assets which are the areas of judgment that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements.

 

Intangible assets

 

Intangible assets are reviewed for impairment if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. When a review for impairment is conducted, the recoverable amount of an asset or a cash-generating unit is determined based on the higher of market value or value-in-use calculations prepared on the basis of management's assumptions and estimates.

 

Under the terms of a deed of assignment between Induction Healthcare Limited, Hugo Stephenson and JuicyMed Pty Ltd, a company controlled by Hugo Stephenson, Induction Healthcare Limited agreed to issue 35,773 £1 ordinary shares at par to the assignor or a nominee of the assignor (in this case Blue Muse Investments Pty Ltd as trustee of The Blue Muse Trust). No formal valuation was done of the intellectual property at the time of the transaction transferred to the Group. The intangible asset was recognised initially at cost and the Directors expect future economic benefits to flow to Induction Healthcare Limited as a result of the assignment. The Directors have carried out an impairment review and concluded no indicators of impairment exist.

 

Other assets

 

Induction Healthcare Limited paid £100,000 for an option to acquire either the shares or the assets of Podmedics Limited in exchange for consideration of £400,000 satisfied in either shares or cash. No formal valuation was done of the option at the time of acquisition. The option was recognised initially at cost and, given as at 31 March 2019 no formal decision has been made with regard to whether to exercise the option and that there has been no material change in Podmedics between the time of the acquisition of the option and the Period end, the Directors have concluded that there has been no material change in the fair value of the option.
