Notification to Shareholders of Adoption of Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 101

On 31 August 2016, Clinigen posted a letter to shareholders, the full text of which is set out below.

Following the publication of FRS 100, 'Application of financial reporting requirements', by the Financial Reporting Council, Clinigen Group plc is required to change its accounting framework for its entity financial statements, which is currently UK GAAP, for its financial year commencing 1 July 2015. The Board considers that it is in the best interests of the group for Clinigen Group plc to adopt FRS 101, 'Reduced disclosure framework'.

No disclosures in the current UK GAAP financial statements would be omitted on adoption of FRS 101.

As a result of adopting FRS 101, the recognition of deferred tax asset on share based payments will be required in line with the group consolidated accounts under EU-adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Full disclosure of the re-measurement will be given in the Financial Statements. Loans and Borrowings will be split out from Creditors and presented separately on the face of the Company Balance Sheet.

A shareholder or shareholders holding in aggregate 5% or more of the total allotted shares in Clinigen can serve objections to the use of the disclosure exemptions on Clinigen, in writing, to the Company Secretary, Clinigen Group plc, Pitcairn House, 1st Avenue, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, DE14 2WW not later than 16 September 2016.

This election will apply on an ongoing basis until such time as Clinigen notifies shareholders of any change to its chosen accounting framework for the parent entity financial statements.

Please note this election only applies to the Clinigen parent entity financial statements and does not affect the group consolidated financial statements which will continue to report under EU-adopted IFRS.
