BoxNation, Queensberry Losses Reported in Financial Reports

By Shaun Brown

Boxing Channel Media Ltd, the trading name for BoxNation, reported a loss of £1.7m for a 14 month financial period to March 31, 2015.

The figures, which have been lodged with Companies House, are down from losses of £3.4m in 12 months to January 31, 2014.

 The UK subscription channel, which launched in September 2011, and shows fights from all over the world including ones staged by Queensbury Promotions, are now entering its fifth year of operation.

The more alarming news from the filed accounts shows a balance sheet deficit to the tune of £8m.

Accounts were prepared on a going concern basis and the auditors state in their report dated December 14, 2015: "The matters explained in note 1.1 to the financial statements indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern."

However, the report did go on to state that: "The directors are confident that the company will be able to continue as a going concern as the company is in the process of raising funds, expected to be in the region of £5 million, through a corporate exercise.

"Subsequent to the expected fund raising, revenues are projected to increase significantly and the company to move to profitability in the period to 31 March 2017, retaining positive cash balances as a result of the investment of the anticipated fund raising proceeds in the business."

 This comes at a time when Queensbury Promotions Ltd, whose accounts for the period until 31 March 2015, were submitted to Companies House in July 2015. These showed a loss of £3.3m and balance sheet deficit of nearly £4m.

[QUOTE=Clegg;16377364]Boxnation was a a nice idea but Bunce and the other guy with their 'fat loudmouths down the pub' routine made things a bit too painful for me to subscribe. It's a paid-for service so they should've aimed the content…

Not surprising, really. Productive values are terrible. Their presenting and commentary team is awful, Steve Lillis is the only one I can even tolerate. Buncey is like a beery guy in a pub shouting at you over his Guinness. Barry…
