Dozens Savings Plc

("DS" or "the Company")


Business Review

The Company was formed to issue debt securities (namely listed bonds paying 5% fixed interest over a 12 month period) to UK retail investors. The ultimate aim of the Company and its Parent, Project Imagine Limited, is to encourage savers to become investors by providing an investment product where capital is not at risk.

The issued bonds of the company have been admitted to Aquis Stock Exchange and the company has a total facility for issuing GBP7 million of bonds, each bond being worth GBP100, in total over a rolling twelve-month period.

The Company successfully issued 19,316 bonds worth GBP1,931,600 in total during the 12 months ending September 2021. The bonds are marketed by its parent company, Project Imagine Limited and a secondary market is being made by Thomas Grant and Company Limited.

The Company relies on the funding of its Parent, Project Imagine Limited for the continuation of frequent bond issuances in order to encourage savers to become investors.

Principal risks and uncertainties

Business model - the risk that the Company's business model is not sustainable due to poor execution of the Company's strategic plan or inability to adapt to changing market conditions.

Financial - any risks that could impact the Company's financial profile, in particular cash flow risk rising from failure to maintain an adequate working capital position.

Compliance - the risk of not meeting relevant legislations, rules and regulations which could cause customers harm, financial losses or reputational damage to the Company.

Operational - the risk that failures of people, processes or internal and third-party systems could lead to a service disruption or financial losses.

COVID-19 - the risk that critical partners' businesses will cease to be viable impacting continuity of third party services on which the application depends. Also the risk that prospective B2B customers will delay implementation of new core-banking platforms delaying revenue.

Financial Review

Sustainable financial growth is key to delivering Project Imagine's mission in a responsible way which prioritises its customers interests. In FY21 the Group raised GBP5.4m (and a further GBP1.6m post year-end) to support growth while maintaining its regulatory obligations.

In FY21 the Company's operating loss Increased to GBP202,051 (2020 - GBP182,894) as the Company had 12 issuances compared to 8 issuances in FY20 disrupted by Covid-19 pandemic.

At the end of the period, the Company had gross assets of GBP2,063,376 (2020 - GBP1,692,078), shareholder's funds of GBP19,665 (2020 - GBP28,016) and total cash balances of GBP1,904,685 (2020 - GBP1,466,688).

Key performance indicators

Average bond balance held by subscribers

Since September 2020, average bond balance held by customers has increased from GBP2,128 to GBP3,493.

Rate of subscription to monthly bond issuances

Since September 2020, monthly issuances have been oversubscribed by 2x on average.

Other performance indicators

The Company's business model is not reliant on any natural resources, nor does management anticipate climate change having a direct impact on the Company's operations.

The Company performs an important role in society by incentivising users to save. As long as the Company continues to operate in an ethical and responsible fashion, it expects to continue fulfilling this important role while helping other businesses to improve consumers' lives through innovative financial technology.

Future Outlook

Since the reporting date the company has redeemed 1,676 bonds of GBP100 each for an aggregate total of GBP167,600.

While the company has discontinued issuing bonds it will continue to service the bonds of over GBP1.5m currently in issue with the last issuance maturing on 30 September 2022, or until earlier redemption if facilitated in the best interests of the bond holders.
