Dr Paul Harper, Non-Executive Chairman, commented:

"The Company continues to make good progress, maintaining the momentum seen in the previous year. We are excited to be working with two new biotech clients (Convert Pharmaceuticals and Bicycle Therapeutics) as well as, for the first time, Cancer Research UK (announced just after the end of the period). The landmark deal with Merck KGaA was renewed reflecting the recognition by the Merck team of the quality and value on both the modelling itself and of the quality of the interpretation and guidance provided by an experienced Physiomics(R) team. The relationship with Merck represents an independent endorsement of the quality of the Physiomics(R) package in the drug discovery field in oncology which has allowed Dr Millen and his team to create new relationships and to secure new contracts. This success has led to a healthy pipeline of new opportunities going forward. It is also my firm belief that the emerging personalised medicine package will add significantly to the Company's skill set, opening wholly new opportunities. Meanwhile the team has embarked on a more extensive business development strategy aimed at bringing in new business."

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer's Statement

Introduction

We are pleased to report in the financial year ended 30 June 2019, for the second year running, the Company achieved its highest ever level of total income. A combination of the acquisition of two important new clients, repeat business from some existing ones and a second year of significant commitments by Merck KGaA, all contributed to what was our most successful year to date. Increased marketing spend, publicity relating to the Merck contract and important new clients who have shared their name publicly have all helped to create the momentum we've experienced in the last twelve months as well as the increasing recognition that Physiomics is becoming the "go-to" company for cancer modelling services.

In addition, the Company completed its second Innovate UK grant in consecutive years in the field of personalised cancer treatment. The project achieved a good level of engagement with clinicians including an important presentation at the Royal Marsden Hospital (one of the UK's leading cancer centres) at an event jointly organised with the National Institute for Health Research and the Institute for Cancer Research.

The key areas of focus for the Company are outlined in this statement and explored further in the Strategic Report.

Financial Review

The Company's full year total income of GBP783,101 reflects these achievements, being the highest in its history, and a 53% increase on the previous full year to 30 June 2018. Total income grew to GBP411,195 in the second half compared with the first half unaudited total income of GBP371,906, showing a steady growth of the business from period to period.

The operating loss decreased 23% to GBP201,219 (2018 GBP260,391). The loss after taxation decreased 43% to GBP104,040 (2017: GBP183,341).

Following the Company's placing in May 2018, the Company allocated funds to expand the in-house team, increase marketing spend and update its IT infrastructure, all of which have helped to generate and support the increased level of business transacted during this financial year compared with previous years.

Net assets at the year-end were GBP607,914 (2018: GBP690,026) of which GBP405,366 (2018: GBP571,869) comprised cash and cash equivalents. Net cash outflow from operating activities fell by GBP26,025 (2018: GBP267,477) compared with the previous year although this was offset by increased investment in IT infrastructure (see Cash Flow statement below). No further funds were raised during this financial year.

Staff

As a consulting business, our staff are critical to our business and represent not just the "engine room" but also the client facing side of Physiomics. The Company's decision to hire an additional full-time employee to supplement its delivery team in July 2018 has allowed it to execute more client and grant business than ever before. The Board regularly reviews staffing versus workload and as required the Company will consider expanding its permanent, full-time, in-house team to address its increasing workload.

We would like to thank our staff for their hard work and commitment during the year.

Independent Auditors' Report to the Members of Physiomics Plc

Opinion

We have audited the financial statements of Physiomics Plc for the year ended 30th June 2019 which comprise the income statement, the statement of comprehensive income, the statement of financial position, the cash flow statement, the statement of changes in equity and the related notes. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

In our opinion, the financial statements:

-- give a true and fair view of the state of the Company's affairs as at 30th June 2019 and of its loss for the year then ended;

-- have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union; and

   --          have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006. 

Basis for opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) (ISAs (UK)) and applicable law. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in the UK, including the FRC's Ethical Standard as applied to listed entities and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Conclusions relating to going concern

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters in relation to which the ISAs (UK) require us to report to you where:

-- the directors' use of the going concern basis of accounting in the preparation of the financial statements is not appropriate; or

-- the directors have not disclosed in the financial statements any identified material uncertainties that may cast significant doubt about the Company's ability to continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting for a period of at least twelve months from the date when the financial statements are authorised for issue.

Key audit matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period and include the most significant assessed risks of material misstatement (whether or not due to fraud) we identified, including those which had the greatest effect on: the overall audit strategy, the allocation of resources in the audit; and directing the efforts of the engagement team. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

Our application of materiality

We define materiality as the magnitude of misstatement in the Financial Statements that of materiality makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable person would be changed or influenced. We use materiality both in planning and in the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our work.

We determined materiality for the Company to be GBP16,950. We agreed with the Audit Committee that we would report to them all audit differences in excess of 5% of materiality, as well as differences below that which would, in our view, warrant reporting on a qualitative basis. We also report to the Audit Committee on disclosure matters that we identified when assessing the overall presentation of the Financial Statements.

An overview of the scope of our audit

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 Annual 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 misstatement or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report.

Other information

The directors are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the annual report other than the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon. Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and, except to the extent otherwise explicitly stated in our report, we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If we identify such material inconsistencies or apparent material misstatements, we are required to determine whether there is a material misstatement in the financial statements or a material misstatement of the other information. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Opinions on other matters prescribed by the Companies Act 2006

In our opinion, based on the work undertaken in the course of the audit:

-- 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; and

-- the strategic report and the directors' report have been prepared in accordance with applicable legal requirements

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

In the light of the knowledge and understanding of the Company and its environment obtained in the course of the audit, we have not identified material misstatements in the strategic report or the directors' report.

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters in relation to which 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. 

Responsibilities of directors

As explained more fully in the directors' responsibilities statement set out on page 15 of the Company's gull Annual Report, the directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view, and for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements, the directors are responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the directors either intend to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (UK) will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

A further description of our responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements in located on the Financial Reporting Council's website at www.frc.org.uk. This description forms part of our auditor's report.

Use of our report

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 auditor's 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.

Notes to the Financial Statements

   1       Accounting policies 

Company information

Physiomics Plc is a company limited by shares incorporated in England and Wales. The registered office is The Magdalen Centre, Oxford Science Park, Robert Robinson Avenue, Oxford, OX4 4GA.

   1.1    Accounting convention 

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted for use in the European Union and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS, (except as otherwise stated).

The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis. The principal accounting policies adopted are set out below.

The Company has taken advantage of the exemption under section 402 of the Companies Act 2006 not to prepare consolidated accounts. The financial statements present information about the Company as an individual entity and not about its group.

   1.2    Going concern 

The accounts have been prepared on the going concern basis. The Company primarily operates in the relatively defensive pharmaceutical industry which we expect to be less affected by current economic conditions, including the potential consequences of Brexit, compared to other industries.

The Company had GBP405,366 of cash and cash equivalents as at 30 June 2019 (2018 GBP571,869).

The board operates an investment policy under which the primary objective is to invest in low-risk cash or cash equivalent investments to safeguard the principal.

The Company's projections, taking into account anticipated revenue streams, show that the Company has sufficient funds to operate for the next twelve months. In coming to this conclusion, the Company notes that current cash and currently contracted projects are projected to cover budgeted expenses for the majority of this period. In addition to currently contracted projects the Company anticipates a number of new clients as well as repeat business from some existing clients.

After reviewing the Company's projections, the Directors believe that the Company is adequately placed to manage its business and financing risks for the next twelve months. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the annual report and accounts.

   1.3    Revenue recognition 

The revenue shown in the income statement relates to amounts received or receivable from the provision of services associated with outsourced systems and computational biology services to pharmaceutical companies.

Revenue from the provision of the principal activities is recognised by reference to the stage of completion of the transaction at the balance sheet date where the amount of revenue can be measured reliably and sufficient work has been completed with certainty to ensure that the economic benefit will flow to the Company.

   1.4    Intangible assets other than goodwill 

Intangible assets acquired separately from third parties are recognised as assets and measured at cost.

Following initial recognition, intangible assets are measured at cost or fair value at the date of acquisition less any amortisation and any impairment losses. Amortisation costs are included within the net operating expenses disclosed in the income statement.

Intangible assets are amortised over their useful lives as follows:

 
              Useful life   Method 
 Software     15 years      Straight line 
 Trademarks   10 years      Straight line 
 

Useful lives are also examined on an annual basis and adjustments, where applicable are made on a prospective basis. The Company does not have any intangible assets with indefinite lives.

   1.5    Tangible fixed assets 

Tangible fixed assets are initially measured at cost and subsequently measured at cost or valuation, net of depreciation and any impairment losses.

Depreciation is recognised so as to write off the cost or valuation of assets less their residual values over their useful lives on the following bases:

   Fixtures and fittings                                                   3 years straight line 
   IT Equipment                                                              3 years straight line 

The gain or loss arising on the disposal of an asset is determined as the difference between the sale proceeds and the carrying value of the asset and is recognised in the profit and loss account.

   1.6    Research and development expenditure 

Expenditure on research activity is recognised as an expense in the period in which it is incurred.

   1.7    Fixed asset investments 

A subsidiary is an entity controlled by the Company. Control is the power to govern the financial and operating policies of the entity so as to obtain benefits from its activities.

Participating interests are stated at cost less amounts written off in the Company balance sheet.

   1.8    Impairment of tangible and intangible assets 

Property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the asset's carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's fair value less costs to sell and value in use. For purposes of assessing impairment, assets that do not individually generate cash flows are assessed as part of the cash generating unit to which they belong. Cash generating units are the lowest levels for which there are cash flows that are largely independent of the cash flows from other assets or groups of assets.

   1.9    Fair value measurement 

IFRS 13 establishes a single source of guidance for all fair value measurements. IFRS 13 does not change when an entity is required to use fair value, but rather provides guidance on how to measure fair value under IFRS when fair value is required or permitted. The resulting calculations under IFRS 13 affected the principles that the Company uses to assess the fair value, but the assessment of fair value under IFRS 13 has not materially changed the fair values recognised or disclosed. IFRS 13 mainly impacts the disclosures of the Company. It requires specific disclosures about fair value measurements and disclosures of fair values, some of which replace existing disclosure requirements in other standards.

1.10 Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short-term liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.

1.11 Financial assets

Financial assets are recognised in the company's statement of financial position when the company becomes party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

Financial assets are classified into specified categories. The classification depends on the nature and purpose of the financial assets and is determined at the time of recognition.

Financial assets are initially measured at fair value plus transaction costs, other than those classified as fair value through the income statement, which are measured at fair value.

Trade and other receivables

Trade receivables are recognised and carried at the lower of their original invoiced value and recoverable amount. Balances are written off when the probability of recovery is considered to be remote.

Impairment of financial assets

Financial assets, other than those at fair value through the income statement, are assessed for indicators of impairment at each reporting end date.

Financial assets are impaired where there is objective evidence that, as a result of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the financial asset, the estimated future cash flows of the investment have been affected.

Derecognition of financial assets

Financial assets are derecognised only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership to another entity.

1.12 Financial liabilities

Financial liabilities are classified as either financial liabilities at fair value through the income statement or other financial liabilities.

Financial liabilities are classified according to the substance of the contractual arrangements entered into.

Derecognition of financial liabilities

Financial liabilities are derecognised when, and only when, the company's obligations are discharged, cancelled, or they expire.

1.13 Equity instruments

Equity instruments issued by the company are recorded at the proceeds received, net of direct issue costs. An equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of the Company after deducting all of its liabilities.

1.14 Taxation

The tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax.

Current tax

The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from net profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other years and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The company's liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting end date.

Deferred tax

Deferred tax is the tax expected to be payable or recoverable on differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit,and is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or from the initial recognition of other assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the tax profit nor the accounting profit.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each reporting end date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered. Deferred tax is calculated at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period when the liability is settled or the asset is realised. Deferred tax is charged or credited in the income statement, except when it relates to items charged or credited directly to equity, in which case the deferred tax is also dealt with in equity. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when the company has a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets and liabilities and the deferred tax assets and liabilities relate to taxes levied by the same tax authority.

1.15 Employee benefits

The costs of short-term employee benefits are recognised as a liability and an expense.

The cost of any unused holiday entitlement is recognised in the period in which the employee's services are received.

Termination benefits are recognised immediately as an expense when the company is demonstrably committed to terminate the employment of an employee or to provide termination benefits.

1.16 Retirement benefits

Payments to defined contribution retirement benefit schemes are charged as an expense as

they fall due.

1.17 Share-based payments

The Company issues equity settled share-based payments to certain employees. Equity settled share-based payments are measured at fair value at the date of grant. The fair value determined at the grant date is expensed on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Fair value is measured by use of a Black-Scholes model.

1.18 Leases

Rentals payable under operating leases, less any lease incentives received, are charged to income on a straight-line basis over the term of the relevant lease except where another more systematic basis is more representative of the time pattern in which economic benefits from the lease asset are consumed.

1.19 Government grants

Government grants are recognised when there is reasonable assurance that the grant conditions will be met and the grants will be received.

Government grants of a revenue nature are credited to the profit and loss account in the same period as the related expenditure.

1.20 Foreign exchange

Transactions in currencies other than pounds sterling are recorded at the rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. At each reporting end date, monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing on the reporting end date. Gains and losses arising on translation are included in the income statement for the period.

1.21 Segment reporting

A business segment is a group of assets and operations engaged in providing products or services that are subject to risks and returns that are different from those of other business segments. A geographical segment is engaged in providing products or services within a particular economic environment that are subject to risks and return that are different from those of segments operating in other economic environments.

1.22 Adoption of international accounting standards

At the date of authorisation of these financial statements, the following standards and interpretations which have not been applied in these financial statements were in issue but not yet effective:

-- IFRS 16 "leases" will be effective for the year ending June 2020 onwards and the impact is not expected to be significant. IFRS16 requires lessees to recognise the future liability reflecting the future lease payments and a right-of-use asset for all lease contracts.

   2       Critical accounting estimates and judgements 

Revenue for projects started and completed during the financial year is recognised in full during the year. Revenue from a project which commences in one financial year and is completed in a subsequent financial year is recognised over the life of the project based on the expected period to completion as anticipated at each balance sheet date less what has already been recognised during a previous financial period or periods.

There were no other material accounting estimates or areas of judgements required.

The loss attributable to equity holders (holders of ordinary shares) of the Company for the purpose of calculating the fully diluted loss per share is identical to that used for calculating the loss per share. The exercise of share options would have the effect of reducing the loss per share and is therefore anti- dilutive under the terms of IAS 33 'Earnings per Share'.
