16. Events after the reporting period 
 
APQ Global Ltd acquired APQ Partners LLP for a nominal value and fair value of
£0.01 on 3 February 2017.  The Company achieved this by taking over as
Managing Partner of APQ Partners LLP.   In doing so the Company achieved its
objective as stated in the Admission documents of taking total control of the
entity which acts as the employer of the UK based individuals providing
services to the Company.  As APQ Partners LLP was acquired for a nominal
value, no goodwill was included in the costs.  Under the terms of the Service
Agreement as described in Note 15 above, APQ Partners LLP charged no fees to
the Company, and in return the Company met the costs of APQ Partners LLP.  The
entity had no other revenue streams, accordingly there were no liabilities or
creditors on the books of APQ Partners LLP at the point at which the Company
assumed control and no revenue or profit was recognised in the books of the
Company after the acquisition.
