Dukemount Capital Plc

("Dukemount" or "the Company")

Interim Results

Dukemount Capital Plc (LSE: DKE) is pleased to announce its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 31 October 2021 ("the Interim Report").

Highlights

   --    Entered into JV agreement with HSKB Ltd (renamed DKE Flexible Energy Limited) 
   --    Completed gas peaker funding package 
   --    Completed purchase of two RTB 11kV energy generation sites 

Operational Developments

Dukemount has successfully signed off a subordinated funding package necessary to enable completion of the senior debt funding for its gas peaking projects and through HSKB completed the purchase of two special purpose companies. Each company contains an 11kV gas peaking facility, which are ready to build, with full planning permission and grid access. HSKB has changed its name to DKE Flexible Energy Limited ("DKE Energy"). DKE Energy will initially build two gas peaking facilities. Dukemount will manage the construction of the two sites and provide its knowledge of long-dated income funding and finance to optimize the capital structure.

Dukemount is currently working with its advisors and the FCA to get a prospectus approved and the first tranche of the funding available to be able to commence the construction process.

Paul Gazzard commented:

"It has been a very positive few months for DKE and we look forward to continuing to grow the pipeline and getting into the construction phase of the new sites with the support of our funders and shareholders.

We look forward to updating the market with more developments soon as they are delivered."

Interim Management Report

I hereby present the Interim Report for the six months ended 31 October 2021. During the period the Group made a loss of GBP227,218 (six months to 31 October 2020: loss of GBP156,947). These losses are consistent with the Group's run rate and arose in the course of: pursuing transactions; maintaining the Company's listing on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority by way of a standard listing and include: consultancy fees, professional fees and directors' fees.

During the period, the board has pushed on to securing long dated income opportunities.

During the period the Company entered into a Joint Venture Agreement in relation to flexibility power expert HSKB Ltd ("HSKB"). Pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement, Dukemount acquired 50% of the issued share capital of HSKB for nominal value.

Dukemount successfully signed off a subordinated funding package necessary to enable completion of the senior debt funding for the gas peaking projects in September 2021 and announced in October 2021 that HSKB had successfully completed the purchase of two special purpose companies. Each company contains an 11kV gas peaking facility, which are ready to build, with full planning permission and grid access. HSKB has also changed its name to DKE Flexible Energy Limited ("DKE Energy"). DKE Energy will initially build two gas peaking facilities. Dukemount will manage the construction of the two sites and provide its knowledge of long-dated income funding and finance to optimize the capital structure. DKE Energy's management brings its technical, operational and market expertise of the UK flexible power market, as well as access to a pipeline of further deals.

Outlook

Dukemount believes the opportunities presented by the joint venture to be an important milestone for Dukemount to meet its projected growth targets. Dukemount is set to rollout further joint venture projects with a focus on gas peaking and battery storage facilities. Both asset types balance the fluctuating power requirements of the grid during periods of high-level demand or shortfalls of electricity supply: a problem which is set to become more acute in the transition to a greater reliance on renewable energy sources.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank our shareholders for their support and the Dukemount team for their continuing efforts in driving this business forward.

Notes to the Interim Report

For the six months ended 31 October 2021

   1.            GENERAL INFORMATION 

Dukemount Capital Plc (the "Company") is a company domiciled in England. The interim report for the six months ended 31 October 2021 comprises the results of the Company and its subsidiaries (together referred to as the "Group").

   2.            BASIS OF PREPARATION 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention and on a going concern basis and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, International Accounting Standards and IFRIC interpretations endorsed for use in the United Kingdom ("IFRS"). The condensed consolidated interim financial statements contained in this document do not constitute statutory accounts. In the opinion of the directors, the condensed consolidated interim financial statements for this period fairly presents the financial position, result of operations and cash flows for this period. The Board of Directors approved this Interim Financial Report on 27 January 2022.

Statement of compliance

The Interim Report includes the consolidated interim financial statements which have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 'Interim Financial Reporting'. The condensed interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the period ended 30 April 2021, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRS endorsed for use in the United Kingdom.

Accounting policies

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the period ended 31 October 2021 have not been audited or reviewed in accordance with the International Standard on Review Engagements 2410 issued by the Auditing Practices Board. The figures were prepared using applicable accounting policies and practices consistent with those adopted in the statutory annual financial statements for the year ended 30 April 2021. There have been no new accounting policies adopted since 30 April 2021.

Going concern

The Group has assessed its ability to continue as a going concern. The Directors, having made due and careful enquiry, are of the opinion that the Group will have access to adequate working capital to meet its obligations for the period of at least twelve months from the date when the condensed interim financial statements are authorised for issue. The Directors therefore have made an informed judgement, at the time of approving these condensed interim financial statements, that there is a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. As a result, the Directors have adopted the going concern basis of accounting in the preparation of the condensed interim financial statements for the period ended 31 October 2021.

   3.            RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES 

The Board continually assesses and monitors the key risks of the business. The key risks that could affect the Group's short and medium-term performance and the factors that mitigate those risks have not substantially changed from those set out in the Company's 2021 audited financial statements, a copy of which is available on the Company's website: http://www.dukemountcapitalplc.com .

   4.              REVENUE 

Revenue relates to amounts contractually due under a property development agreement at the balance sheet date relating to the stage of completion of a contract as measured by surveys of work performed to date. Revenue is recognised for services when the Group has satisfied its contractual performance obligation in respect of the services. The amount recognised for the services performed is the consideration that the Group is entitled to for performing the services provided. Revenue from contracts with customers is recognised over time.
