The purpose of these instruments are to finance the company's operations. Due to the nature of the financial instruments used there is no exposure to price risk or credit risk. The company manages its exposure to cash flow risk and liquidity risk by ensuring that funds are available to meet liabilities as they fall due. Directors' responsibilities statement The directors are responsible for preparing the strategic report, the directors' report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations. Company law requires the directors to prepare financial statements for each financial year. Under that law the directors have elected to prepare the financial statements in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law). Under company law the directors must not approve the financial statements unless they are satisfied that they give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company and of the profit or loss of the company for that period. In preparing these financial statements, the directors are required to: * select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently; * make judgments and accounting estimates that are reasonable and prudent; * state whether applicable UK Accounting Standards have been followed, subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements; * prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the company will continue in business. The directors are responsible for keeping adequate accounting records that are sufficient to show and explain the company's transactions and disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the company and enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Companies Act 2006. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities. DIRECTORS' REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2013 Company's policy for payment of creditors The company's policy is to agree terms of payment with suppliers in advance of each transaction, to ensure that suppliers are made aware of the terms of payment and to abide by the terms of payment. Trade creditors at the year end represented 111 days' purchases. Auditors The auditors, Nyman Libson Paul, will be proposed for reappointment in accordance with section 489 of the Companies Act 2006. Disclosure of information to auditors Each of the persons who are directors at the time when this directors' report is approved has confirmed that: * so far as that director is aware, there is no relevant audit information of which the company's auditors are unaware, and * that director has taken all the steps that ought to have been taken as a director in order to be aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the company's auditors are aware of that information. This report was approved by the board on 19 June 2014 and signed on its behalf. C Comu Director INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF EUROCAP INVESTMENTS PLC We have audited the financial statements of Eurocap Investments PLC for the year ended 31 December 2013, set out on pages 6 to 11. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and United Kingdom Accounting Standards (United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice). This report is made solely to the company's members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the Companies Act 2006. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the company's members those matters we are required to state to them in an auditors' report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company and the company's members as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed. Respective responsibilities of directors and auditors As explained more fully in the directors' responsibilities statement, the directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view. Our responsibility is to audit and express an opinion on the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland). Those standards require us to comply with the Auditing Practices Board's Ethical Standards for Auditors. Scope of the audit of the financial statements An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the company's circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial information in the strategic report and the directors' report to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and to identify any information that is apparently materially incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with, the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report. Opinion on financial statements In our opinion the financial statements: * give a true and fair view of the state of the company's affairs as at 31 December 2013 and of its loss for the year then ended; * have been properly prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice; and * have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006. Emphasis of matter Without qualifying our opinion, we draw your attention to note 1 in the financial statements which indicates that the company has net liabilities at the balance sheet date of £27,551. These circumstances which are detailed fully in note 1 indicate the existence of a material uncertainty in connection with the company's ability to continue as a going concern. Opinion on other matter prescribed by the Companies Act 2006 In our opinion the information given in the strategic report and the directors' report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements. INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF EUROCAP INVESTMENTS PLC Matters on which we are required to report by exception We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters where the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if, in our opinion: * adequate accounting records have not been kept, or returns adequate for our audit have not been received from branches not visited by us; or * the financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and returns; or * certain disclosures of directors' remuneration specified by law are not made; or * we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit.
