                                    Golden Rock Global plc 
  (Incorporated and registered in Jersey under the Companies (Jersey) Law 1991 with registered 
                                         number 121560) 
                                      Unaudited Condensed Interim 
                                          Financial Statements 
                                 For the Period from 1(st) January 2023 
                                            to 30 June 2023 


It is a pleasure to announce the unaudited condensed interim financial statements for the Company for the period ended 30 June 2023.

The key event during the period was the restoration of the Company's trading facility following the conclusion of discussions with Bolt Global Limited.

Post the period end there were two key events:

-- The appointment of Clear Capital Limited as broker and a placing of new ordinary shares to raise GBP95,000 gross; and

-- As announced on 17 August 2023, the Company entered into heads of terms with 2Mee Limited regarding a potential RTO, and the Company's shares were suspended. The Board is pleased to confirm that legal and financial due diligence in connection with the acquisition of 2Mee Limited is progressing well and we expect to have a complete submission to the FCA for an eligibility review of listing and a prospectus review in accordance with Listing Rule 5.6.21R by 1 December 2023.

As at 30 June 2023, the Company had cash of GBP54,000 and, post the fund raise announced on 20 July 2023, had cash in bank at 30 August 2023 of approximately GBP98,800. The Company has sufficient cash for its immediate requirements but will need to seek further funds or facilities if the acquisition of 2Mee Limited has not concluded in early 2024.

As announced on 5 December 2022, Wei Chen, a director, entered into a Loan Note Agreement for aggregate gross proceeds of GBP100,000. The maturity date of the agreement is 1 December 2023 and the Board are in discussions with Wei Chen regarding whether he wishes to convert the Loan Note in accordance with its terms or extend the maturity date. The Company will make an appropriate announcement in due course in line with its regulatory obligations.

On behalf of the Board, I thank shareholders for their continued support.

a) New interpretations and revised standards effective for the period ended 30 June 2023

The Company has applied the same accounting policies and methods of computation in its interim financial statements as in its 2022 annual financial statements, except for those that relate to new standards and interpretations effective for the first time for periods beginning on (or after) 1 January 2023, and will be adopted in the 2023 annual financial statements. New standards impacting the Company that will be adopted in the annual financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2023, and which have given rise to changes in the Company's accounting policies are:

                     ---------------------------------------  ---------------------- 

b) Standards and interpretations in issue but not yet effective

There are a number of standards and interpretations which have been issued by the International Accounting Standards Board that are effective for periods beginning subsequent to 31 December 2023 (the date on which the company's next annual financial statements will be prepared up to) that the Company has decided not to adopt early. The Directors do not believe these standards and interpretations will have a material impact on the financial statements once adopted.


a) Basis of preparation

The condensed interim financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2023 were approved by the Board of Directors on 28 September 2023. The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and International Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" (IAS 34) as adopted by the European Union. The accounting policies applied by the company in these condensed interim financial statements are the same as those set out in the company's Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2022. No material new standards, amendments to standards or interpretations are effective in the period ended 30 June 2023.

The condensed interim financial statements are unaudited and have not been reviewed by the auditors. The financial information for the year ended 31 December 2022 does not constitute the Company's statutory financial statements. The Company's statutory financial statements for that year have been filed with the Jersey Registrar of Companies and received an unqualified auditor's report.

The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis which assumes that the company will continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future on the grounds that the Directors will continue to financially support the company until such time as the business achieves financial viability. The company financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that would be required if they were to be prepared on a basis other than the going concern basis.

The financial information is presented in Pounds Sterling (GBP), which is the Company's functional and presentational currency.

b) Going Concern

The financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that the Company is a going concern. When assessing the foreseeable future, the directors have looked at a period of 12 months from the date of approval of this report. Despite cash being received post year end from the placing of new ordinary shares, the Company will need to raise additional funds in order to meet its day-to-day working capital requirements. The Directors are confident in their ability to raise sufficient capital from new shareholders or, if necessary, obtain alternative sources of funding. Whilst the Directors recognise that there is significant material uncertainty around going concern as a result of the trading results for the period to 30 June 2023, the accounts have still been prepared on a going concern basis, which is supported by confidence over the ability to raise sufficient funds through the issue of further equity should the need arise.

c) Foreign currency translation

The financial statements of the Company are presented in the currency of the primary environment in which the Company operates (its functional currency).

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency 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 year end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in profit and loss.

d) Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised in the Statement of Financial Position when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instruments. Financial assets and financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value.

Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial assets and financial liabilities (other than financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss) are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition.

Transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition of financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are recognised immediately in profit or loss.

Impairment of financial assets

An assessment for impairment is undertaken when there is objective evidence that a financial asset is impaired. Impairment loss on financial assets is recognised when there is objective evidence that the Company will not be able to collect all the amounts due to it in accordance with the original terms of the receivables. The amount of the impairment loss is determined as the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows.

Financial liabilities

The Company's financial liabilities include amounts due to shareholders and other payables and accruals. Financial liabilities are recognised when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provision of the instrument. All financial liabilities are recognised initially at their fair value, net of transaction costs, and subsequently measured at amortised cost, using the effective interest method, unless the effect of discounting would be insignificant, in which case they are stated at cost.

The Company derecognises financial liabilities when, and only when, the Company's obligations are discharged, cancelled or they expire.

d) Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents includes cash in hand, deposits held on call with banks and other short term (having maturity within 3 months) highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

e) Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares during the period plus the dilutive effect of dilutive potential ordinary shares outstanding during the year.


Preparation of financial information in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making judgements about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

It is the Directors' view that there are no significant areas of estimation, uncertainty and critical judgements in applying accounting policies that have significant effect on the amount recognised in the financial information for the period.


a) Categories of financial instruments

The carrying amounts and fair value of the Company 's f inancial assets and liabilities as at the end of the reporting year are as follows:

                                                                 Half Year to 30/06/2023   Half Year to 30/06/2022

b) Financial risk management objectives and policies.

The Company is exposed to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including currency risk), credit risk and liquidity risk. The risk management policies employed by the Company to manage these risks ar e discussed below. The primary objectives of the financial risk management function ar e to establish risk limits, and then ensure that exposure to risk stays within these limits. The operational and legal risk management functions ar e intended to ensure proper functioning of internal policies and procedures to minimise operational and legal risks.

   i)   Market risk 

Market risk is not material.

ii) Credit risk

Credit risk refers to the risk that a counterp ar ty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. Credit allowances are made for estimated losses that have been incurred by the reporting date.

iii) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities. The Company's approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will always have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company's reputation.


IFRS 8 defines operating segments as those activities of an entity about which separate financial information is available and which are evaluated by the Board of Directors to assess perfo rm ance and determine the allocation of resources. The Board of Directors are of the opinion that under IFRS 8 the Company has only one operating segment and one geographic market, in the UK. The Board of Directors assess the perfo rm ance of the operating segment using financial information which is measured and presented in a m ann er consistent with that in the Financial Statements. Segmental reporting will be reviewed and considered in light of the development of the Company's business over the next reporting period.

   9.   TAXATION 

The Company is incorporated in Jersey, and its activities are subject to taxation at a rate of 0%.


The Company presents basic and diluted earnings per share information for its ordinary shares. Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share are determined by adjusting the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding for the effects of all dilutive potential ordinary shares.

There is no difference between the basic and diluted earnings per share, as the Company has no potential ordinary shares.
