Chief Executive Officer's Report

 

Overview

We present the Group's financial results for the year ended 31 March 2020. The year ended during a global pandemic, which is still with us today and continues to have devastating effects across the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

 

For Mirada, even discounting the one-off effect of the disposal of the non-core parking payment activities of Mirada Connect, last year saw a significant improvement financially, operationally, and commercially. Despite having incurred an operating loss of $1.36m (2019: $2.91m), the Company's performance has dramatically improved over the past 12 months, with remarkable growth in adjusted EBITDA. Operationally, the Group has been able to augment itself to fully deploy its flagship Iris solution across different markets. Commercially, Mirada has benefited from the references provided by its prior successful deployments, which have reinforced the Group's presence and credibility in the market.

 

The main highlights for the year were the integration with Netflix, our new contract win with PMO (Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores) in Spain, and the sale of Mirada Connect, among others. These provide further proof of the quality of our solution and are important steps forward in achieving a greater market footprint and solid financial stability. In addition, we have a growing proportion of recurrent revenues from present customers, and confidence that our operational skills will enable us to continue to deliver for our customers. We therefore view the year ahead with cautious optimism, despite the uncertainties of the present health and economic environment.

 

Trading Review

This was the first year the Group's sole focus was on its main area of business, the Digital TV sector. In July, the mobile payments for parking division, Mirada Connect, was acquired by PayByPhone, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Financial Services, for a consideration of £2.12 million, representing a one-off gain in profit of approximately $1.7 million for the Group. This was an important and positive development for the Company, allowing it to reinforce the balance sheet and to focus the management on the core Digital TV business. Mirada's main product, the Iris platform, continued to gain traction across its installed customer base and the Company was successful in winning new customers during the year. The Company has continued deploying its business model, to benefit from the growth of its customers, and we are pleased to see how our customers' subscriber bases using Mirada's products continue to grow.

 

Within our largest customer, izzi telecom, based in Mexico, the use of our technology continues to grow rapidly, with more than 2.8 million Linux-based set-top boxes (STBs) deployed at the end of the fiscal year in approximately 1.5 million households. Significantly, more than 1 million households are now using izzi's over-the-top (OTT) product (based on mobile devices and web browsers) supplied by Mirada. While the customer adoption of Mirada's products remains high, there is still a large part of izzi's installed base to cover, as it has in excess of 4.2 million pay TV customers, representing more than 8 million STBs, and our expectation is that nearly two thirds of the installed base  will still need to be replaced with Mirada's technology.

 

During the year, Mirada has also been focused on deploying the next-generation service at izzi, based on Android TV technology, which is likely to become the largest Google-based set-top box deployment in the Americas to date.

 

Regarding ATN International, our Atlanta-based customer with a footprint in the Caribbean and mainland US, we are happy to have delivered our solution in their Bermuda cable network, One Communications, where our solution now covers the vast majority of households. Mirada is now focused on the deployment in Viya, ATN Internationals' US Virgin Islands network, which will launch our product in the next few weeks.

 

Regarding Digital TV Edmund, in Bolivia, the customer is slowly solving internal technical problems that delayed the deployment of our solution, and we foresee those being resolved in the next few months. In the meantime, we continue providing support to their operations while they work to fully deploy their pay TV service. Within this customer we are glad to announce the first certifications of our Smart TV technology and our Roku based services.

 

We are also happy to report a much larger than expected adoption of Iris in SkyTel, our Mongolian customer. Our expectation was to have less than 10,000 of their customers subscribe to our services in the first year of operation.  However, by the end of March, in less than nine months, the customer was providing our technology to more than 280,000 subscribers, and our mobile applications in Android and iOS were both number one for the whole country in the Google Play and Apple Store services.

 

We secured a new customer in September, Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores (PMO), in Spain, which, under the "Zapi" brand, aggregates a substantial number of subscribers across multiple independent telecommunication suppliers in the country. We have been working hard to finalise the integration activities since the contract win and, with integration and deployment timelines improving with each new customer we win, we hope to launch commercially in the next few weeks. Zapi has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of customers in Spain, becoming our largest deployment of Iris in Europe to date.

 

The entire Group was able to transition to complete remote working practices at the beginning of March due to the outbreak of COVID-19, and we are satisfied to note that, more than three months into this new scenario, operations remain perfectly normal with no impact on our capability to deliver our products and services. Our customers, which are mostly telecommunications providers of TV services, have become even more invaluable to consumers and have experienced a unprecedented increase of nearly 25% in linear TV consumption and more than 40% for video on-demand (VoD) consumption. In addition, broadband usage has increased over 30% in our customers' networks. This increase in our customers' activities has made our visibility of revenues for the coming year much higher at this stage than in any other prior year. This lends us confidence in our abilities to continue our business without disruption over the coming months.

 

Our pipeline also remains strong, despite the difficult confinement and uncertain situation imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, although we are conscious that, until the pandemic resides, there could be delays in decisions from new customers. Although our customers, and the sector at large, are currently benefiting from the sharp rise in demand for audiovisual and connectivity services, it is still too early to predict if the potential reduction in the purchasing power of consumers will have an overall negative impact in the telco and pay TV business.

 

As part of our SaaS strategy, Mirada has been able to agree long term contracts with key customers, with an increasing recurrent revenue component. This allows our customers to benefit from continuous product improvement and aligns their long-term growth objectives to ours, as we benefit from growth in their subscriber numbers. While it usually means a higher level of investment during the deployment stage, which is not being capitalised, it also provides Mirada with an improved medium and long-term return on investment. The efforts made during prior years on winning and deploying customers are now providing a higher level of recurrent revenue as well as visibility over future revenues. This is ultimately increasing our total turnover, reducing operational losses and allowing the Group to steadily approach a stage of sustained profitability.

 

The Group continues to deliver high quality products for the audiovisual sector, and we are delighted with the growing relevance Mirada is enjoying in the market. There has been a substantial improvement in our EBITDA level, and the Board continues to believe that the Company is close to a point of sustained profitability. In these difficult times we are grateful to be working in a business that can continue providing quality experiences to millions of users, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our fantastic group of employees, customers, suppliers, partners and investors.

 

Financial Overview

Revenue grew to $13.16 million (2019: $12.32 million), a 7% year-on-year increase. Excluding Mirada Connect, which was sold in July 2019, revenue grew to $12.96 million (2019: 11.49 million), a 13% year-on-year increase. Growth in development revenue was $1.47million to reach $7.98 million for the year, driven by the customisation of the Android TV custom launcher for izzi Telecom.

 

Gross profit grew to $12.48 million (2019: $11.46 million) and operating losses reduced to $1.36 million (2019: $2.91 million). Staff Costs decreased by $0.46 million to $6.79 million (2019: $7.25 million) and other administrative expenses decreased by $0.20 million to $3.20 million (2019: $3.40 million). The improvement in revenues and the reduction in costs led to an adjusted EBITDA (as defined in Note 8) of $2.50 million (2019: $0.81 million). There is a tax credit recognised in the current period of $0.31 million (2019: $0.18 million) as a result of Mirada Iberia's research and innovation tax deductions. As a result, the net impact was the achievement of net profit for the year of $0.59 million (2019: loss of $3.11 million).

 

Net Debt increased to $5.05 million (2019: $4.86 million). Long term interest-bearing loans and borrowings increased by 40% to $2.40 million (2019: $1.72 million) and short term borrowings and related party loans and interest decreased to $2.85 million (2019: $3.26 million) - see note 20 for further details. Trade receivables increased from $1.89 million to $1.99 million, due to increased revenues and activity at the end of the fiscal year. A new €1.30 million credit facility was granted by Leasa Spain, S.L.U., owned by Mr. Ernesto Luis Tinajero Flores, who also owns 87.21% of the voting rights of Mirada plc.

 

Other intangible assets have increased by $0.78 million, mainly due to the development of our custom launcher for Android TV.

 

The Group generated $1.80 million of cash in operating activities in the year (2019: cash used in operating activities of $1.24 million), received $2.61 million from the disposal of Mirada Connect and spent a further $4.38 million (2019: $3.07 million) in investing activities. The operating and investing cash flows were funded by the movement in net debt explained above. This resulted in an increase in cash and cash equivalents of $0.06 million.

 

The General Meeting held on 10 September 2019 approved a 100 to 1 share consolidation. The total outstanding share options on 9 September 2019 was 4,148,316 (4,697,166 at 30 September 2018). Therefore, as of 31 March 2020, the total outstanding share options was 41,483.

 

The Company has adopted the following new accounting standards with effect from 1 April 2019:

                IFRS 16- Leases

           IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments

                Amendments to IFRS 9 Prepayment Features with Negative Compensation

                Amendments to IAS 28 Long-term Interests in Associates and Joint Ventures

                Amendments to IAS 19 Employee Benefits

                Annual Improvements to IFRS Standards 2015-2017 Cycle

 

See note 3 to the financial statements for further information on the new IFRS standards.

 

Current Trading and Outlook

Mirada is focused on the Digital TV segment and is increasing its market reach, with a growing healthy pipeline of opportunities as a result of the successful deployment and a wide appraisal of its Iris multi-platform product for both Linux and Android TV solutions, and the integration of Netflix. The Company is now considered to be a top-end solution for potential customers, with a flexible model that allows audiovisual companies of any size to provide a competitive offering for their subscribers.

 

Despite the uncertain impact of COVID-19, Mirada's financial position is continuously improving, reinforced by the support of its largest shareholder. Together, these factors have led to an improved commercial performance, with participation in multiple deals, which, combined with the growing pipeline, provides confidence in the Company's ability to secure more contract wins in the coming years.

Selected notes to financial statements year ended 31 March 2020

 

 

1.        General Information

 

Mirada plc is a company incorporated in the United Kingdom. The address of the registered office is 68 Lombard Street, London, EC3V 9LJ.  The nature of the Group's operations and its principal activities are the provision and support of products and services in the Digital TV and Broadcast markets.

In accordance with section 435 of the Companies Act 2006, the Directors advise that the financial information set out in this announcement does not constitute the Group's statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2019 or 2020 but is derived from them. The financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2019 have been audited and filed with the Registrar of Companies.  The financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2020 have been audited and will be filed with the Registrar of Companies following the Company's Annual General Meeting. The Independent Auditors Report on the Group's statutory financial statements for the years ended 31 March 2019 and 2020 were unqualified and did not contain statements under Section 498(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006. 

The financial information included in this announcement has been prepared in accordance with the recognition and measurement requirements of International Financial Repeating Standards as adopted for use in the EU but does not include all of the disclosures required by those standards.  The accounting policies used in the preparation of the financial information are consistent with those used in the group's financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2019 and are unchanged from those set out in the financial statements for the period ended 31 March 2019, except for the implementation of the IFRS 16 as described in Note 3.

 

2.        Change in consolidation scope

 

Main changes for the year ended as at 31 March 2020:

 

On 5 July 2019, the Group announced the sale of the wholly owned subsidiary Mirada Connect Ltd. to PayByPhone UK Limited (subsidiary of Volkswagen Financial Services, AG), for a consideration of $2.61 million (£2.12 million). As a result, the Group recognised a gain of $1.70 million as shown in the Consolidated Income Statement. As a consequence of said disposal, the results of Mirada Connect Ltd are included as part of the consolidation scope from 1 April 2019 to the effective date of disposal. For the purpose of IFRS 5, this is not a discontinued operation.

 

 

3.        Changes in accounting policies

 

a.     Adoption of new and revised standards effective from 1 April 2019

 

IFRS 16 - Leases

This Standard replaces the following standards: (a) IAS 17 Leases; (b) IFRIC 4 Determining Whether an Arrangement Contains a Lease; (c) SIC-15 Operating Leases - Incentives; and SIC-27 Evaluating the Substance of Transactions in the Legal Form of a Lease.

IFRS 16 establishes that companies that are lessee in lease contracts will recognise in the consolidated balance sheet the liabilities and assets of lease contracts (except short-term and low-value lease agreements). Furthermore, the operating lease expense has been replaced by a charge for straight-line amortisation of right of use assets and an interest expense on lease liabilities.

This standard has not introduced significant changes in the accounting for lease contracts by the lessor.

The Group previously classified leases as operating or finance leases under IAS 17 (refer to Note 26). With respect to the leases classified as finance leases in accordance with IAS 17, the book value of the right of use asset and the lease liability on the date of first-time application will be the carrying amount of the lease asset and the lease liability immediately prior to that date, measured in accordance with IAS 17. With respect to operating leases, the lessee will record the asset by right of use and the lease liability in accordance with this standard as of the date of first-time application.

The Group has opted to apply the modified retrospective approach, without restating the comparative information presented as at 31 March 2019 under the aforementioned standards. On transition to IFRS 16, the Group elected to apply the practical expedient to grandfather the assessment of which transactions are leases. It applied IFRS 16 only to contracts that were previously identified as leases. Under this option, the Group has calculated the lease liability as the current value of the outstanding instalments on the contracts in force at the date of first-time application determined on the basis of the incremental interest rates on the aforementioned date and has recognised the value of the right-of-use asset for the same amount of the lease liability calculated at 1 April 2019.

The average incremental borrowing rates for the main countries affected by this standard, used for calculating the current value of the rights of use and of the operating lease liabilities recognised at the date of first-time application of IFRS 16 are detailed in Note 15.

The right of use and lease liability were defined according to the original contract term.

IFRS 16 establishes two exceptions for the lease recognition that included the low-value lease agreements (amount equal or less than to $5 thousand) and short-term lease agreement (for a period equal or less of 12 months). For these cases, the expenditures are recognised as expense during the term of the lease agreement. The Group has taken advantage of these two practical expedients in determining ROU assets and Lease liability

To calculate this impact, the Group has analysed, among other factors, the duration of the significant leases considering whether the agreements can be terminated early or not and whether or not the durations can be unilaterally extended by the lessee and, in both cases, the degree of certainty, which, in turn, depends on the expected use of the assets located in the underlying properties leased.

The following table shows the impact on the consolidated statement of financial position at 1 April 2019 of application of the standard:

There was no material impact on the Consolidated Statement of Cashflows.

Other new amended standards and Interpretations issued by the IASB that apply to the financial statements do not impact the Group as they are either not relevant to the Group's activities or require accounting which is consistent with the Group's current accounting policies. These standards are:

IFRIC 23 - Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments

Amendments to IFRS 9 - Prepayment Features with Negative Compensation

Amendments to IAS 19 - Employee Benefits

Annual Improvements to IFRS Standards 2015-2017 Cycle

 

b.     Adoption of new and revised standards effective from 1 April 2020

New Standards, interpretations and amendments not yet effective

 

There are a number of standards and amendments to standards, and interpretations which have been issued by the IASB that are effective in future accounting periods that the group has decided not to adopt early.  The most significant of these are as follows, effective for the period beginning 1 April 2020. The Group is currently assessing the impact of these new standard and amendments.  The Group does not expect any other standards issued by the IASB, but not yet effective, to have a material outcome on the group.

Amendments to IAS 1 and IAS 8

Definition of materiality or with relative importance. This amendment clarifies the definition of materiality or relative importance and how it should be applied by introduction in the definition of guides that until now have been addressed in other parts of the IFRS Standards; improving the explanations that accompany the definition and ensuring that the definition of materiality or with relative importance is consistent throughout all IFRS Standards. The Group will consider the new definition of materiality and do not foresee significant impact in the preparation of the consolidated financial statement.

Amendments to IFRS 3 - Business combinations

At the date of authorisation for issue of these consolidated financial statements, the amendments to IFRS 3 - Business combinations have been approved by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

Amendments to IFRS 3 - Business combinations. IFRS 3 is amended to limit and clarify the definition of a business, and to enable a simplified evaluation of whether a set of activities and assets acquired is a group of assets instead of a business.

 

4.        Significant accounting policies

 

a.     Basis of accounting

These Group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, International Accounting Standards and Interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standards Board as adopted by European Union ("IFRSs") and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies preparing their accounts under IFRSs.

 

b.     Going concern

These financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis.  The Directors have reviewed the Company and Group's going concern position taking account of its current business activities, budgeted performance and the factors likely to affect its future development, which are set out in this Annual report, and include the Group's objectives, policies and processes for managing its capital, its financial risk management objectives, its exposure to credit and liquidity risks and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As at 31 March 2020, the Group had cash and cash equivalents of $0.19m (2019: $0.12m), had net current assets of $0.29m (2019: net current liabilities of $0.70m) and net assets of $10.55m (2019: $9.98m.). In the year ended 31 March 2020, the Group generated net cash from operating activities of $1.80m (2019: net cash used in operating activities $1.24m), realised a profit for the year of $0.59m (2019: a loss of $3.11m). Subsequent to the year end, the Directors are pleased to announce that they have secured the following additional funding for the business:

•              €1.6m of new loans obtained between April 2020 and June 2020 from banks with 80% of these loans guaranteed by the Spanish government under the COVID-19 relief scheme.

•              An extension to the term of its €1.30 million credit facility has been granted by Leasa Spain, S.L.U.The term of the Facility has been extended by 12 months and now expires on 30 November 2021.

The Directors have prepared detailed cash flow forecasts for the period to at least 31 December 2021.  The Directors regularly review the detailed forecasts of sales, costs and cash flows. The assumptions underlying the forecasts are challenged, varied and tested to establish the likelihood of a range of possible outcomes, including reasonable cash flow sensitivities. The expected figures are carefully monitored against actual outcomes each month and variances are highlighted and discussed at Board level.  However, the uncertain impact of COVID-19 introduces more risks and uncertainty into this year's review. The Group has seen limited impact of COVID-19 on the operational capability of the business.  From a technology point of view, the Group is also offering and developing the most advanced features in the market, providing services to a growing subscriber base in our core markets.  To this end a base case cash flow forecast has been prepared which takes into account the following key assumptions:

•              The continued availability of the Group's invoice discounting facility throughout the foreseeable future.

•              An average revenue growth of 13% in the foreseeable future, which Directors believe, comprise of revenue that is substantially already secured under signed contracts.  

•              Additional net funding of US$1.4m from lenders

•              An expected receipt of US$0.3m of Research and Development tax credit in March 2021 from Spanish tax authorities.

The Directors have also considered a number of downside scenarios, including a scenario where all revenue growth from new customers is removed, a scenario where no further funding is obtained in the period and a reverse stress test.  The purpose of the reverse stress test for the Group is to test at what point the cash facilities would be fully utilised if the assumptions in the Director's base case forecasts are altered.  This reverse stress test includes both a removal of all revenue growth from new customers and a reduction of contracted revenue from existing customers for the forecast period, resulting in an overall reduction of revenue of c.20%, as well as the removal of any potential future funding and the receipt of the US$0.3m Research and Development tax credits anticipated.  In the event that the performance of the Group is not in line with the projections, and more akin to one of our downside scenarios, including the worst case scenario, action will be taken by management immediately to address any potential cash shortfall for the foreseeable future.  The actions that could be taken by the Directors include both a review and restructuring of employment related costs, including the deferral of any potential bonuses due to employees.  These measures alone could save at least $1.0m in operating costs and therefore cash flows.  Further, the Directors could also negotiate access to other sources of finances from our lenders.  Given the Director's current relationship with lenders and their recent success in negotiations with these financial institutions, whilst there are no binding agreements currently in place, negotiations are in very advanced stages for additional funding.   Therefore, they Directors are confident that any additional funding required would be obtained. 

Whilst the cash flow forecasts prepared have been sensitised to consider a number of downside scenarios, including the reverse stress test, the Directors are pleased to note that the post year end performance of the Group has exceeded the original forecast for April and May 2020.  Therefore demonstrating that the Group has not suffered negatively from the impact of COVID-19 and is in a strong place to meet the base case forecasts.  

Overall, the sensitised cash flow forecasts demonstrate that the Group will be able to pay its debts as they fall due for the period to at least 31 December 2021. The Directors are, therefore, satisfied that the financial statements should be prepared on the going concern basis.

Contract assets ('accrued income') and contract liabilities ('deferred income') are included within 'Trade and other receivables' and 'deferred income' respectively on the face of the Statement of Financial Position.  They arise from the Group's revenue contracts, where work has been performed in advance of invoicing customers, and where revenue is received in advance of work performed.  Cumulatively, payments received from customers at each balance sheet date do not necessarily equate to the amount of revenue recognised on the contracts.

                 

6.        Segmental reporting

               

Reportable segments

The chief operating decision maker for the Group is ultimately the board of directors. For financial and operational management, the board considers the Group to be organised into two operating divisions based upon the varying products and services provided by the Group - Digital TV & Broadcast and Mobile. The products and services provided by each of these divisions are described in the Strategic Report. The segment headed other relates to corporate overheads, assets and liabilities.

After the cancellation of share premium approved by the General Meeting on 10 September 2019, the Company has 41,483 (2019: 4,697,166) potentially dilutive ordinary shares arising from share options issued to staff. However, in 2020 and 2019 the profit/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders and weighted average number of ordinary shares for the purpose of calculating the diluted earnings per ordinary share are identical to those used for basic earnings per ordinary share.  This is because the exercise of share options would have the effect of reducing the loss per ordinary share and is therefore anti-dilutive.
