Inspirit Energy Holdings PLC
(“Inspirit Energy”, the “Group” or the “Company”)
 
 
 
Inspirit Energy Holdings PLC (AIM: INSP), the developer of micro Combined Heat and Power (microCHP) boilers, is pleased to announce its interim accounts for the six months ended 31 December 2018. The interim financial information document will also be available on the Company’s website www.inspirit-energy.com.
 
 
Chairman’s Statement:
 
During the period, the Group has continued to advance its microCHP boiler closer towards the goal of commercialisation. To this end, improvements to the design of the Group's Stirling engine technology, including simplification as part of the 'design for manufacture’ process and meeting the challenges in new technology development, sourcing cheaper materials and efficiency re-redesign, has resulted in further delays to the certification process although we hope to progress forward with a higher output and cheaper cost base product latter his year.
 
The Group has continued discussions with a European company that may carry out the certification process, with the new cheaper but robust material employed in the latest model, and advanced manufacturing processes as and when the product is approved for production.
 
As mentioned previously, the applicable market for our technology is global, either as a boiler replacement product or as an add-on to an existing commercial plant room. In the UK there are in excess of 20 million gas boilers installed and more than 1.6 million new and replacement domestic gas boilers are installed each year. This is in addition to almost 300,000 commercial boiler installations each year. Europe as a whole has approximately 70 million boilers installed. These are the first markets to which our technology is applicable.

INSPIRIT ENERGY HOLDINGS PLC
 
Consolidated Notes to the Interim Financial Information
 
1.     General Information
 
      The principal activity of Inspirit Energy Holdings PLC (“the Company”) during the period was that of an investment company which aims to invest in disruptive products or technologies that are either proven or at the later stages of development, which own or have exclusive licence to the relevant intellectual property and may benefit from feed-in tariffs or other renewable energy incentives.
     
      Inspirit Energy Holdings PLC is a company incorporated and domiciled in England and Wales and quoted on AIM, a market operated by the London Stock Exchange. The address of its registered office is 2nd Floor, 2 London Wall Buildings, London, EC2M 5PP, United Kingdom.
 
2.     Basis of Preparation
 
The interim financial information set out above does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of the Companies Act 2006.  It has been prepared on a going concern basis in accordance with the recognition and measurement criteria of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union. Statutory financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2018 were approved by the Board of Directors on 28 December 2018 and delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors on those financial statements was unqualified.
 
The interim financial information for the six months ended 31 December 2018 has not been reviewed or audited. The interim financial report has been approved by the Board on 28 March 2019.
 
Going concern
 
The Directors, having made appropriate enquiries, consider that adequate resources exist for the Company to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future and that, therefore, it is appropriate to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the interim financial statements for the period ended 31 December 2018.
 
Risks and uncertainties
 
The Board continuously assesses and monitors the key risks of the business. The key risks that could affect the Company’s medium term performance and the factors that mitigate those risks have not substantially changed from those set out in the Company’s 2018 Annual Report and Financial Statements, a copy of which is available on the Company’s website: www.inspirit-energy.com. The key financial risks are liquidity and credit risk.
 
Critical accounting estimates
 
The preparation of interim financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the end of the reporting period. Significant items subject to such estimates are set out in note 2 of the Company’s 2018 Annual Report and Financial Statements. The nature and amounts of such estimates have not changed significantly during the interim period.
 
 
3.     Significant Accounting Policies
 
     The accounting policies applied are consistent with those of the annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2018, as described in those annual financial statements.
 
4.  Segmental Analysis
 
The Company’s primary reporting format is business segments and its secondary format is geographical segments. The Company only operates in a single business and geographical segment. Accordingly, no segmental information for business segment or geographical segment is required.
 
5.  Loss per Share
 
The loss per ordinary share is based on the Group’s loss for the period of £214,000 (company’s loss – 6 months to 31 December 2017 £184.000; year ended 30 June 2018 - £953,000) and a basic and diluted weighted average number of ordinary shares of £0.001 each in issue of 1,470,806,859 (31 December 2017 1,420,806,859 – basic and diluted 1,470,806,859; 30 June 2018).
