Financial Highlights

 

·    Revenue increased 45.6% year-on-year to USD 87.8 million in 1H2017, driven by high utilisation of the Group's employed rigs, the ramp up of the Group's operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ("KSA"), commencement of operations of ADES 3 in Algeria and the introduction of Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) services.

·   Gross profit rose 28.5% year-on-year to USD 41.0 million in 1H2017 (USD 31.9 million in 1H2016), with an associated gross profit margin impacted by the introduction of three offshore units in the KSA. 

·      Adjusted EBITDA increased by 42.7% year-on-year to USD 45.0 million in 1H2017 (USD 31.6 million in 1H2016) aided by the devaluation of the Egyptian pound.

·   Net profit decreased by 6.0% year-on-year to USD 17.3 million in 1H2017 as the Group incurred a one-time expense in relation to its IPO in May 2017 totalling USD 4.6 million.

·    Normalised net profit excluding the one-time USD 4.6 million IPO expense in 1H2017 was USD 21.9 million in 1H2017, an 18.8% year-on-year increase, and generating a net profit margin of 24.9%.

·     Cash balances stood at USD 163.5 million at 30 June 2017, supported by funds raised at the IPO.

·     Net debt stood at USD 65.6 million as at 30 June 2017.

 

Operational Highlights

·   Continued exemplary safety performance, achieving over 22.3 million man hours with a Recordable Injury Frequency Rate ("RIFR") (per 200,000 working hours) at 0.45, below the IADC worldwide standard rate of 0.58.

·   Total backlog reached USD 430 million as at 30 June 2017 compared to USD 501 million as at 31 December 2016, reflecting the realisation of USD 88 million in contractual agreements and the addition of new contract awards and renewals.

·    New contract awards for Admarine 88 with Belayim Petroleum Co. (Petrobel), a joint venture between ENI IEOC and Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), for a three-month drilling campaign. Additionally, Admarine VIII was awarded a farm-in agreement with Fanar Petroleum Company. Operations and revenue generation for both contracts will commence upon rig deployment.

·    Contract renewals for Admarine VI with General Petroleum Company (GPC) for a one-year period to March 2018, and for Admarine V with Petrobel for one year (including an optional six-month extension).

·   Finalised exclusive marketing agreements with leading shipyards enabling ADES to market new build offshore jack-up rigs, including high specification rigs to deploy these assets on a revenue-sharing basis. This innovative approach broadens ADES' service offerings and allows it to penetrate new markets and capture a larger market share, while simultaneously maintaining our low-cost model.

 

Current Trading and Outlook

·   Scaling existing operations and penetrating new markets through participation in a substantial pipeline of active tenders across the Middle East, in existing geographies as well as the UAE and onshore Iraq. Management expect a number of these tenders to close during 2H2017 with revenue contribution to commence in 1H2018.

·  2H2017 expected to witness organic double-digit revenue growth while maintaining similar margins to 1H 2017. ADES now expects certain contracts won during 1H2017 to commence in early 2018. As a result, 2H2017 performance is currently expected to be broadly in line with 1H2017 performance.

·   Acquisition opportunities continue to be reviewed in line with the Company's strategy set out at IPO with the ADES well placed due to its strong cash position.

 

Commenting on the half-year performance, Dr. Mohamed Farouk, Chief Executive Officer of ADES International said:

 

"The first half of 2017 was a milestone period for ADES. We joined the ranks of internationally recognised oil and gas services companies listed on the London Stock Exchange following our successful IPO in May, and announced multiple contract awards and renewals for our assets. Our sustained operational performance and exemplary safety performance with an RIFR5 of 0.45 has allowed us to deliver strong financial results and stands as a testament to the success of our business model. Our revenue grew by 46% year-on-year while maintaining our standard low-cost base, resulting in an EBITDA margin of 51% highlighting the continued activity in development and production operations in the geographies in which we operate.

 

ADES' ability to deliver strong operational results is underpinned by its three-pillar strategy, including the build-up of our current backlog through contract extensions, significant participation in tender activity to increase our market share in existing and new markets, and targeting smart acquisition opportunities. Execution of this strategy is made possible thanks to our lean cost structure, operational excellence, impeccable safety record and robust balance sheet.

 

As new contracts won in 1H2017 are expected to commence operations in 2018, we believe 2H2017 will be broadly in line with 1H2017, with the business continuing to deliver organic double-digit revenue growth while maintaining similar margins in the current financial year.

 

Closing our IPO during this critical time in our growth trajectory has provided the necessary liquidity that will help us take advantage of acquisition opportunities.

 

We will continue to capitalise on our recent successes during the first half of the year by leveraging our established platform, expanding our presence in existing markets, entering new markets in the GCC through active participation in tenders and executing profitable acquisitions aimed at securing long-term growth.

 

In parallel, ADES aims to continue leveraging its lean cost structure and low operating expenses to maximise profitability and continue delivering exceptional shareholder value."

Chief Executive Officer's Report

The first half of 2017 saw ADES join the ranks of internationally recognised oil and gas services companies listed on the London Stock Exchange in May, and announce multiple contract awards and renewals. Our sustained operational performance and exemplary safety performance with an RIFR6 of 0.45 has allowed us to deliver strong financial results and stands as a testament to the success of our business model. Our revenue grew by 46% year-on-year while maintaining our standard low-cost base, resulting in an EBITDA margin of 51% highlighting the continued activity in development and production operations in the geographies in which we operate.

 

ADES' ability to deliver strong operational results is underpinned by its three-pillar strategy, including the build-up of our current backlog through contract extensions, significant participation in tender activity to increase our market share in existing and new markets, and targeting smart acquisition opportunities. Execution of this strategy is made possible thanks to our lean cost structure, operational excellence, impeccable safety record and robust balance sheet.

 

While rig utilisation worldwide has remained low on the back of stagnating recovery in global oil prices, we have maintained our fleet utilisation at an average rate of over 90% since 2012, well above the current average Middle East Jack-up utilisation rate of 66% and Global average of 58%7. The assets we purchased in 2016 - including four jack-up rigs and one onshore drilling rig - are all either currently operational or have been contracted and are waiting to come online in the near future. Our key strength lies in our ability to purchase legacy assets at a fraction of their market price if new. On the back of our comprehensive market intelligence and our ability to swiftly act on opportunities we are able to turn legacy assets into high-quality rigs that are subsequently offered at competitive day-rates due to our low-cost base.  

 

Our operations in the KSA, which began at the end of 2016 with the deployment of three offshore jack-up rigs to Saudi Aramco, generated USD 29 million or 33% of total revenue in 1H2017. This represents only the start of the significant potential for our business in the country - as well as the wider GCC region - that we are looking to capture going forward. Entering the KSA market has allowed us to demonstrate our ability to deliver superior services, and as a result, we have received new invitations to participate in tenders for turnkey jobs in the Kingdom.

 

In Egypt, where we maintain a market-leading position, our commitment to our clients has allowed ADES to maintain long-term relationships with high-profile local and international energy companies, ensuring the continuity of our business during challenging times. Contracts for Admarine V and Admarine VI, both of which expired during the reporting period, have been renewed with Petrobel and GPC, respectively, during the first half of 2017. Meanwhile, Admarine VIII and Admarine 88's new contracts are scheduled to commence in early 2018.

 

As new contracts won in 1H2017 are expected to commence operations in 2018, we believe 2H2017 will be broadly in line with 1H2017, with the business continuing to deliver organic double-digit revenue growth while maintaining similar margins in the current financial year.

 

We are currently participating in new tenders to further scale up our operations in both existing and new markets, including Egypt, KSA, Algeria, UAE and Iraq. Additionally, we have finalised exclusive marketing agreements with a number of shipyards for the rights to utilise 8 rigs in active tenders. The agreements enable the Group to obtain new contracts and generate additional revenue without incurring the additional capital expenditure associated with a high-spec rig.

 

Closing our IPO during this critical time in the life of the Group has provided necessary liquidity that will help the Group take advantage of acquisition opportunities. We have identified a number of prospects and have also been approached by multiple sellers in our field, and are in the process of evaluating these opportunities with a focus on the medium-term and the objective of scaling up our operations in existing and target markets. ADES is in a strong position to finance these acquisitions, both from the funds raised at IPO, as well from our existing banking relationships. It is these strong relationships with multiple stakeholders, from rig owners and brokers to regulators and banks, that provide ADES with a unique position to grow in the region.

 

Our focus during the second half of 2017 will be on capitalising on our recent successes during the first half this year through expanding our presence in existing markets, entering new high growth markets in the GCC, and executing profitable acquisitions aimed at securing long-term growth. The regional scale of ADES, combined with our global industry-leading practices, will help us unlock value across our segments and markets.

Operational & Financial Review

 

Revenue

Consolidated revenue increased 45.6% year-on-year to USD 87.8 million in 1H2017, driven by high utilisation of the Group's employed rigs, including the full impact of new rigs in the KSA and Algeria which came online during the latter half of 2016 and the full six-month impact of introducing MOPU services.

The Group's top line was primarily driven by the ramp up of operations in KSA (three offshore rigs deployed in November 2016), the launch of MOPU services in Egypt with Admarine I (February 2016) and the commencement of operations by ADES 3 in Algeria (October 2016).

 

Egypt contributed 53.3% of total revenue at USD 46.8 million in 1H2017, down from 91.4% in 1H2016, as new geographies increasingly contribute to the Group's top-line. The Group's revenue in Egypt decreased by 15.1% year-on-year due to upgrade projects performed on Admarine II and Admarine VI during 1H2017.

 

In Algeria, where the Group currently has two onshore rigs, revenue increased 137.0% year-on-year from USD 5.2 million to USD 12.4 million due to the commencement of ADES 3's contract in October 2016.

 

KSA, where operations commenced in November 2016, was the highest contributor to the Group's top-line growth year-on-year. Revenue from KSA reached USD 28.7 million in 1H2017, as the Group realised the full impact of its first full six months of operations in the country. With the Group's successful venture into the KSA market and its operations in the Kingdom increasingly contributing to top-line earnings, management reiterates its forward-looking strategy that will see it further expand in the GCC and continue driving long-term revenue growth.

Drilling & Workover (77.2% of revenues in 1H2017)

Maintaining our focus on providing services to customers in the development and production phases, particularly well maintenance and workover services, has allowed the Group to enjoy long-term contracts that are largely sustainable in a sub-sector that is less susceptible to oil price fluctuations. Drilling & Workover, which includes onshore and offshore drilling as well as workover services, is the Group's main source of revenue, contributing 77.2% to total revenue in 1H2017. Drilling & Workover revenue grew by 44.9% year-on-year to reach USD 67.8million in 1H2017, due to the introduction of the KSA rigs in November 2016 as the Company realised the impact of its first full six months of operations in the country.

 

MOPU (14.6% of revenues in 1H2017)

MOPU services, which contributed 14.6% to total revenue during 1H2017, were introduced by ADES in February 2016 with Admarine I, a converted modified jack-up rig equipped with production and process facilities and an FSO, which is used as a storage unit. Admarine I, located in Egypt, is currently under contract with Petrozenima to process, store and offload crude oil. Admarine I was not production-ready until October 2016, when an additional production-related day rate was added to its original day rate. As a result of this, MOPU revenue grew by 121.1% year-on-year to reach USD 12.9 million in 1H2017 as the full impact of its revenue is realised.

 

Jack-Up Barge & Projects (6.2% of revenues in 1H2017)

As part of its offshore offerings, ADES owns an offshore jack-up barge, Admarine II, which is currently leased to GUPCO in the Gulf of Suez area in Egypt. Projects revenue is primarily generated from contracting fees charged to clients for outsourcing various operating projects, such as maintenance, construction and repair services, to third party personnel. Revenue from the Group's jack-up barge and projects, which combined contributed 6.2% to total revenue, fell from USD 7.1 million to USD 5.4 million between 1H2016 and 1H2017, representing a decrease of 23.5% year-on-year. This decrease was attributed in part to planned upgrade work on Admarine II which meant it was taken out of operation, and a decrease in revenue from project work performed during the period.

 

Others (2% of revenues in 1H2017)

Other revenue includes catering revenue and the rental of essential operating equipment that the client has not supplied. Between 1H2016 and 1H2017 other revenue remained at 3.3-3.4% of drilling & workover revenue, growing in proportion to the growth of new rigs coming online. As a result, other revenue reached USD 2.3 million in 1H2017, representing a year-on-year increase of 35.3% and contributing 2.6% to total revenue.

 

Gross Profit

Gross profit rose 28.5% year-on-year to USD 41.0 million in 1H2017 (USD 31.9 million in 1H2016), with an associated gross profit margin of 46.7% versus 52.9% in 1H2016. Margin contraction was mainly attributed to the growth in crew salaries as a percentage of revenue by 4.8 percentage points following the introduction of the three offshore units operating in the KSA, where salary costs are higher than in Egypt.  Management is actively working to ensure costs are kept in line with the wider group and is implementing a plan to ensure more Saudi nationals are employed in the KSA and at the same time reduce the number of foreign workers on rigs in the Kingdom.

The addition of four new rigs to the Group's fleet since June 2016 saw depreciation expense climb 81% year-on-year in 1H2017, recording a 3.3 percentage point increase for the expense as a percent of revenue.

 

Operating Profit

Top-line growth led to a 35.9% year-on-year increase in operating profit to USD 29.4 million in 1H2017 versus USD 21.6 million a year earlier. The continued use of a predominantly local administrative team largely remunerated in local currencies in relation to mainly USD-denominated revenue saw the November 2016 devaluation of the Egyptian pound dampen the effect of increased costs in KSA. Despite a 6.2 percentage point decline in gross profit margin, the Group's operating profit margin fell by 2.4 percentage points to 33.4% compared with 35.8% a year earlier.

 

The devaluation of the Egyptian pound allowed the Group to reduce administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue from 13.6% to 11.7%. This saw adjusted EBITDA increase by 42.7% year-on-year to USD 45.0 million in 1H2017 (USD 31.6 million in 1H2016), with EBITDA margin maintained at 51.3%.

 

Finance Cost

ADES recorded a finance cost of USD 8.3 million in 1H2017, representing a year-on-year increase of 113.5% from USD 3.9 million in 1H2016 due to the expansion of the Group's financing facilities with the addition of a new KSA syndication loan of USD 55 million.

 

IPO-Related Expenses

One-time IPO expenses, in relation to the successful completion of ADES' IPO in May 2017, stood at USD 4.6 million.

 

Income Tax

Income tax expenses recorded in 1H2017 amounted to a credit of USD 687 thousand compared to an expense of USD 295 thousand in 1H2016, due to an adjustment in tax accruals.

 

 

Normalised Net Profit

Normalised net profit, which excludes the one-time USD 4.6 million IPO expense in 1H2017, reached USD 21.9 million in 1H2017, reflecting a year-on-year increase of 18.8%. ADES' normalised net profit margin fell by 5.6 percentage points over the period due to i) higher interest expenses associated with the addition of new financing facilities; and ii) higher depreciation expenses associated with the growth of our fleet by 4 new rigs since June 2016.

 

Balance Sheet

 

Assets

Noncurrent Assets stayed relatively stable between 31 December 2016 and 30 June 2017, decreasing slightly from USD 292.6 million to USD 289.6 million due to the effects of depreciation of property and equipment.

Current assets grew from USD 106.2 million as at 31 December 2016 to USD 290.5 million as at 30 June 2017. This growth is mainly attributed to cash & cash equivalents, which grew from USD 5.2 million to USD 163.5 million due to proceeds from ADES' IPO. Accounts receivable increased from USD 50.8 million to USD 71.3 million during the same period on the back of increased revenue, with its days-on-hand increasing by approximately one month, from 92 days to 126 days. Management are working to ensure this is reduced back to historic levels.

 

Liabilities

Noncurrent liabilities consist solely of the Group's long-term loans, which saw a slight decrease between 31 December 2016 and 30 June 2017 from USD 189.9 million to USD 172.5 million, in association with the repayment of USD 12.4 million of the medium-term loans.

 

Current Liabilities increased slightly from USD 104.0 million as at December 31, 2016 to USD 116.8 million as at 30 June 2017. The increase in current liabilities is due to a USD 5.2 million overdraft facility drawn by the Group and the increase in the current portion of long-term debt by USD 5.6 million associated with the Group's new KSA syndicated loan. Trade and other payables has slightly increased from USD 51.2 million to USD 51.5 million over the period, despite the substantial growth in the Group's top-line and cost of sales, due to the decrease of the Group's days payable outstanding from 170 days to 161 days over the period.

 

 

Principal Risks and Uncertainties

As in any corporation, ADES is exposed to risks and uncertainties that may adversely affect its performance. The Board and senior management agree that the principal risks and uncertainties facing the Group include political and economic situation in Egypt, Algeria, KSA and the rest of the Middle East, foreign currency supply and associated risks, changes in regulation and regulatory actions, environmental and occupational hazards, failure to maintain the Group's high quality standards and accreditations, failure to retain or renew contracts with clients, failure to recruit and retain skilled personnel and senior management, pricing pressures and decreased business activity in the oil and gas industry, among others.

 

Going Concern

The directors are satisfied that the Group has sufficient resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future, a period of not less than 12 months from the date of this report. Accordingly, the directors continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed financial statements.

REPORT ON REVIEW OF INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF ADES INTERNATIONAL HOLDING LTD. AND ITS SUBSIDIARY

 

Introduction

We have reviewed the accompanying interim condensed consolidated statement of financial position of ADES International Holding Ltd. (the "Company") and its subsidiary (the "Group") as of 30 June 2017 and the related interim condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the six-months period then ended, and explanatory notes. Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting ("IAS 34"). Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these interim condensed consolidated financial statements based on our review.

 

Scope of Review

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410, "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity". A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit.  Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

 

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34.

1          BACKGROUND

 

ADES International Holding Ltd (the "Company") was incorporated and registered in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) on 22 May 2016 with registered number 2175 under the Companies Law - DIFC Law No. 2 of 2009 (and any regulations thereunder) as a private company limited by shares. The Company's registered office is at level 5, Index tower, Dubai International Financial Centre, P.O. Box 507118, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The principal business activity of the Company is to act as a holding company and managing office. The Company and its subsidiary (see below) constitute the Group (the "Group"). The Company is owned by ADES Investments Holding Ltd., a company incorporated on 22 May 2016 under the Companies Law, DIFC Law no. 2 of 2009.

 

The Company owns Advanced Energy System (ADES) (S.A.E.) (the "Subsidiary") that was established as an Egyptian joint stock company in Egypt and whose shares are not publicly traded.

 

The Group is a leading oil and gas drilling and production services provider in the Middle East and Africa. The Group services primarily include offshore and onshore contract drilling and production services. The Group currently operates in United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Algeria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Group's offshore services include drilling and work over services and Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) production services, as well as accommodation, catering and other barge-based support services. The Group's onshore services primarily encompass drilling and work over services. The Group also provides projects services (outsourcing various operating projects for clients, such as maintenance and repair services).

 

In 2016, pursuant to a reorganisation plan (the "Reorganisation") the ultimate shareholders of the Subsidiary:

 

(i)   Established the Company as a new holding company with share capital of USD 1,000,000 and made an additional capital contribution of USD 30,900,000 for additional shares that were allotted on 23 March 2017.

 

(ii)  Transferred their shareholdings in Advanced Energy System (ADES) (S.A.E.) to the Company for a total consideration of USD 38,520,807 comprising of cash of USD 29,710,961 and the assumption of shareholder obligation of USD 8,809,846.

 

On 9 May 2017, the Company made an offer of 14,756,258 offer shares of par value USD 1.00 each at an offer price of USD 16.50 per ordinary share and admission to the standard listing segment of the official list and to trading on the London Stock Exchange through an Initial Public Offering ("IPO"). The Company was accordingly listed on the London Stock Exchange and its shares were traded with effect from 12 May 2017. 

 

 

2          SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

2.1       BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Group for the six months period ended 30 June 2017 have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, Interim Financial Reporting.

 

These interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in United States Dollars ("USD"), which is Company's functional and presentation currency.

 

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not contain all information and disclosures required for full financial statements prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and should be read with the Group's annual financial statements as at 31 December 2016. The results for the period ended 30 June 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the financial year ending 31 December 2017.

 

2.2       BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION

 

Subsidiaries

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements comprise the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary as at 30 June 2017. Control is achieved when the Group is exposed, or has rights, to variable returns from its involvement with the investee and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the investee. Specifically, the Group controls an investee if, and only if, the Group has:

 

(a)  Power over the investee (i.e. existing rights that give it the current ability to direct the relevant activities of the investee)

(b)  Exposure, or rights, to variable returns from its involvement with the investee; and

(c)  The ability to use its power over the investee to affect its returns.

 

Generally, there is a presumption that a majority of voting rights results in control. To support this presumption and when the Group has less than a majority of the voting or similar rights of an investee, the Group considers all relevant facts and circumstances in assessing whether it has power over an investee, including:

 

(a)        The contractual arrangement with the other vote holders of the investee

(b)        Rights arising from other contractual arrangements

(c)        The Group's voting rights and potential voting rights

 

The Group re-assesses whether or not it controls an investee if facts and circumstances indicate that there are changes to one or more of the three elements of control. Consolidation of a subsidiary begins when the Group obtains control over the subsidiary and ceases when the Group loses control of the subsidiary. Assets, liabilities, income and expenses of a subsidiary acquired or disposed of during the year are included in the interim condensed consolidated financial statements from the date the Group gains control until the date the Group ceases to control the subsidiary.

 

Profit or loss and each component of other comprehensive income (OCI) are attributed to the equity holders of the parent of the Group and to the non-controlling interests, even if this results in the non-controlling interests having a deficit balance. When necessary, adjustments are made to the interim condensed consolidated financial statements of subsidiaries to bring their accounting policies into line with the Group's accounting policies. All intra-group assets and liabilities, equity, income, expenses and cash flows relating to transactions between members of the Group are eliminated in full on consolidation. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date of acquisition or incorporation, being the date on which the Group obtains control, and continue to be consolidated until the date when such control ceases. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting period as the Group, using consistent accounting policies.

 

A change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary, without a loss of control, is accounted for as an equity transaction. If the Group loses control over a subsidiary, it:

 

-     Derecognises the assets (including goodwill) and liabilities of the subsidiary

-     Derecognises the carrying amount of any non-controlling interests

-     Derecognises the cumulative translation differences recorded in equity

-     Recognises the fair value of the consideration received

-     Recognises the fair value of any investment retained

-     Recognises any surplus or deficit in profit or loss

-     Reclassifies the parent's share of components previously recognised in OCI to profit or loss or retained earnings, as appropriate, as would be required if the Group had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities

 

Business combination

The Group applies the acquisition method to account for business combinations. The consideration transferred for the acquisition of a subsidiary is the fair values of the assets transferred, the liabilities incurred to the former owner of the acquiree and the equity interests issued by the Group. The consideration transferred includes the fair value of any asset or liability resulting from a contingent consideration arrangement. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date.

 

The Group recognises any non-controlling interest in the acquiree on an acquisition-by-acquisition basis, either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest's proportionate share of the recognised amounts of acquiree's identifiable net assets. Acquisition related costs are expensed as incurred.

 

If the business combination is achieved in stages, the acquisition date carrying value of the acquirer's previously held equity interest in the acquiree is re-measured to fair value at the acquisition date; any gain or losses arising from such re-measurement are recognised in profit or loss. Any contingent consideration to be transferred by the Group is recognised at fair value at the acquisition date. Subsequent changes to the fair value of the contingent consideration that is deemed to be an asset or liability is recognised in accordance with IAS 39 in profit or loss.

 

Contingent consideration that is classified as equity is not re-measured, and its subsequent settlement is accounted for within equity. The excess of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the acquisition-date fair value of any previous equity interest in the acquiree over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. If the total of consideration transferred, non-controlling interest recognised and previously held interest measured is less than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired in the case of a bargain purchase, the difference is recognised directly in the statement of profit or loss.

 

Associates and joint ventures

An associate is an entity over which the Group has significant influence. Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions of the investee, but is not control or joint control over those policies. A joint venture is a type of joint arrangement whereby the parties that have joint control of the arrangement have rights to the net assets of the joint venture. Joint control is the contractually agreed sharing of control of an arrangement, which exists only when decisions about the relevant activities require unanimous consent of the parties sharing control.

 

The considerations made in determining significant influence or joint controls are similar to those necessary to determine control over subsidiaries.

 

2.3       STANDARDS ISSUED BUT NOT YET EFFECTIVE

 

New standards, interpretations and amendments adopted by the Group:

The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months period ended 30 June 2017 are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the Group's annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016, except for the adoption of new standards and interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standard Board ("IASB") and effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2017, which do not impact the interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Group. The Group has not early adopted any standard, interpretation or amendment that has been issued but is not yet effective.

 

 

3          SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

Management has determined the operating segments based on the reports reviewed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) that are used to make strategic decisions. The CEO considers the business from a geographic perspective and has identified four geographical segments. Management monitors the operating results of its segments separately for the purpose of making decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment. Segment performance is evaluated based on profit or loss before intersegment charges.
