Notes to the financial statements

1. Summary of significant accounting policies

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

a) Basis of preparation

The company was incorporated in England and Wales on 17 April 2014.

The statement of financial position and related notes have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union (IFRS) that would have applied had the statement of financial position been prepared for a financial year of the company. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention and are presented in US Dollars, which is the company’s functional currency.

The significant accounting policies are set out below and have been consistently applied throughout the period.

b) Going concern

After making enquiries, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future and consequently the financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

c) Cash

Cash is cash in hand and at bank.

d) Foreign currency translation

The company’s financial statements are presented in US Dollars which is the company’s functional and presentation currency.

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the US Dollars using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at period end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income.

e) Financial assets

Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. They are included in current assets, except for maturities greater than 12 months after the end of the reporting period. These are classified as non-current assets. The group’s loans and receivables comprise ‘trade and other receivables’ and ‘receivables from fellow subsidiaries’ in the balance sheet. Loans and receivables are subsequently carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method

Notes to the financial statements continued

f) Borrowings

Borrowings are recognised initially at fair value, net of transaction costs incurred. Borrowings are subsequently carried at amortised cost; any difference between the proceeds (net of transaction costs) and the redemption value is recognised in the statement of comprehensive income over the period of the borrowings using the effective interest method. Borrowings are presented as long or short-term based on the maturity of the respective borrowings in accordance with the loan or other agreement. Borrowings with maturities of less than twelve months are classified as short-term. Amounts are classified as long-term where maturity is greater than twelve months. Where no objective evidence of maturity exists, related amounts are classified as short-term.

g) Trade and other payables

Trade and other payables are classified as financial liabilities and are recognised initially at fair value. Subsequent to initial recognition they are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

h) Current and deferred income tax

Tax on the profit or loss for the period comprises current and deferred tax.

Current tax is 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.

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 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.

i) New accounting standards and interpretations

Certain new accounting standards and interpretations have been published that are not mandatory for the period ended 30 June 2016. The company’s assessment of the impact of these new standards and interpretations are not expected to have a significant impact upon the company’s net results, net assets or disclosures.

2. Financial risk management

The company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks. The company’s overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the company’s financial performance.

a) Foreign exchange risk

Foreign exchange risk arises when transactions and recognised assets and liabilities of the company are denominated in a currency that is not the company’s functional currency. The company does not have significant exposure to foreign exchange risk. There are no forward exchange rate contracts in place at, or subsequent to, 30 June 2016.

b) Interest rate risk

The company had borrowings of $697.9 million as at 30 June 2016. Interest is payable at 7.5% on the nominal value of $730 million.

c) Credit risk

The company is not exposed to credit risk because it does not have sales and trade receivables.

d) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the company will not have sufficient funds to meet liabilities. Since the company has amounts due from group companies which short term, repayable on demand and are in excess of current liabilities, the company is not exposed to liquidity risk. The ultimate repayment of the principal will also be funded through intercompany arrangements.

e) Capital management

The company’s objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the company’s ability to continue as a going concern in order to provide returns for shareholders. Capital includes share capital, contributions from parent and accumulated losses.

3. Administration expenses

The company had no employees during the year.

The directors have received no remuneration during the year for their services to this entity.
