AfriAg Global Plc: Audited Results to 31 December 2018

Mon 13th May, 2019 7:00am
AfriAg Global plc

(“AfriAg Global” or the “Company”)

Audited Final Results for the Year Ended 31 December 2018

Chairman’s report (incorporating the strategic report)

AfriAg Global PLC (NEX: AFRI), the London listed global agri-logistics
specialists, today presents its Annual Report for year ended 31 December 2018.

In a very significant move this financial year, the Company became one of the
very few listed in London that was authorised by its shareholders to invest in
the exciting global medicinal cannabis sector.

David Lenigas, Executive Chairman of AfriAg Global, commented:

“I am particularly excited about the shareholder approval gained in 2018 to
allow the Company to invest in the fast-growing globally expanding legal
medical cannabis space. There are very few companies listed in London and
indeed in Europe that are actually allowed to pursue investments in this
sector, and we plan to leverage this unique ability. We as a board have a
number of near-term initiatives that we are pursuing that will hopefully, if
closed, add significant value to the Company.”

Investment policy change to include Medical Cannabis investments:

On 12 September 2018, shareholder approval was obtained at a general meeting
for the expansion of the Company’s investment strategy to include medicinal
cannabis. The Company has now expanded its existing investment strategy to
also include investments in companies, projects or products that are
progressing research in and development of medicinal cannabis and its
derivatives, producing or cultivating medicinal cannabis, producing or
supplying products derived from or related to cannabis (including, but not
limited to, hemp and cannabidiol products); and/or commercialising or
marketing medicinal cannabis and its derivatives. The Company sees tremendous
opportunities in the sector.

Going forward, the Company is likely to be an active investor within this
legal medical cannabis sector and look to acquire control of certain target
companies, although it may also consider acquiring non-controlling
shareholdings in legal medical cannabis companies. The proposed investments to
be made by the Company may be in either quoted or unquoted securities and made
by direct acquisition of an interest in companies, partnerships or joint
ventures, or direct interests in projects and these investments can be at any
stage of development. Accordingly, the Company’s proposed future equity
interests in proposed investments may range from a minority position all the
way up to 100 percent ownership. The Directors primary objective is to achieve
the best possible value over time for Shareholders, primarily through capital
growth.

Agriculture Investments:

Sadly, the market has not considered what has been achieved with our
investments in the agricultural sector well, even though these investments
continue to perform in a difficult global environment. We, as a Company, will
assess whether further or continued investments in the sector is warranted, as
we move towards the medical cannabis focus.

Our investment in AfriAg Marketing Pty Ltd (100% owned by AfriAg Global Plc):

AfriAg Marketing had revenues during the period of £2.24 million (2017:
£3.12 million). During this year, the business has been focusing on
consolidating our core activities of exporting, distribution and trading of a
wide range of fruit and vegetable perishable food lines, including blueberry,
passion fruit, pineapple, apple, strawberry, butternut, peas, fine beans,
mange tout, sugar snap, baby corn, chillies, baby veg, and herbs to name our
top product lines. Foreign exchange management, with the wild fluctuations in
global currency rates, always proves challenging and contributed to the loss
during the period of ZAR 2.628million (£149,000) (2017 profit: ZAR 0.343
million (£20,000)).

Our investment in AfriAg (Pty) Limited (40% owned by AfriAg Global Plc):

AfriAg (Pty) Limited, the South African registered agri-logistics and trading
company,  reported revenues during the 10-month period to 31 December 2018 of
£9.016 million (12 months to 31 December 2017: £14.746 million); and a net
profit for the 10 months to 31 December 2018 of £227,000 (12 months to 3
December 2017: £179,000). The Company has equity-accounted for its 40% share
of this profit for 2018, being £97,000 (2017: £72,000).

Financial Results:

During the period, the Group had revenues of £2.24 m (2017: £3.12 m) and
made a gross profit of £66,000 (2017: £280,000). The total comprehensive
loss for the period attributable to equity holders of the parent was £347,000
(2017: £27 000)

There was a weighted loss per share of 0.017 p (2017: loss per share of 0.003
p).

Current assets at 31 December 2018 amounted to £1,056,000 (2017:
£1,293,000).

Outlook:

We have a very unique ability, being one of the few companies listed in London
and indeed Europe, to actually undertake investments in the fast-growing legal
medical cannabis sector. It has taken a great deal of management and legal
work to achieve this, and this will be a big focus for the management over the
coming year.

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank our shareholders, staff
and consultants for their continued support and I look forward to reporting
further significant progress over the next period and beyond.

The directors of the Company accept responsibility for the contents of this
announcement.

    Investing policy  The Company’s investment strategy focuses on acquisitions of direct and/or indirect interests in the agricultural and medicinal cannabis sectors.   Agriculture The Board intend to seek acquisitions of direct and/or indirect interests in  
    businesses involved in agriculture generally and the production, processing, logistics and distribution of agricultural produce. The Company will focus on opportunities in this sector in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, but will consider possible       
    opportunities anywhere in the world.   Medicinal Cannabis The Board intend to seek investments in companies, projects or products that are:  The Company will seek investments in companies and projects in jurisdictions which have well-developed and         
    reputable laws and regulations for the research and production of medicinal cannabis and in jurisdictions that are signatories to the United Nation’s conventions on narcotics.   Types of Investments The Company is likely to be an active investor within    
    these sectors and acquire control of certain target companies although it may also consider acquiring non-controlling shareholdings. The proposed investments to be made by the Company may be in either quoted or unquoted securities and made by direct       
    acquisition of an interest in companies, partnerships or joint ventures, or direct interests in projects and can be at any stage of development. Accordingly, the Company’s equity interest in a proposed investment may range from a minority position to 100  
    per cent. ownership and a controlling interest. The Directors’ primary objective is to achieve the best possible value over time for Shareholders, primarily through capital growth.  If the Company takes a controlling stake, the acquisition could trigger a 
    Reverse Takeover under Rule 58 of the NEX Exchange Rules.  The Board intend to acquire one or more investments in quoted or unquoted businesses or companies (in whole or in part) thereby creating a platform for further investments. There is no limit on the 
    number of companies, projects or products that the Company may invest in with the agricultural and medicinal cannabis sectors. The Company may need to raise additional funds for these purposes and may use both debt and/or equity.

   Investing policy (continued)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
   The Board believes that their collective experience, together with their extensive network of contacts and the Company’s Technical Committee, will assist them in the identification, evaluation and funding of appropriate investment opportunities within the 
   medicinal cannabis sector. When necessary, other external professionals will be engaged to assist in the due diligence on prospective targets and their management teams. The Directors will also consider appointing additional directors and/or advisors with 
   relevant experience if the need arises.  It is anticipated that there may be opportunities to spin out businesses privately or by initial public offerings where Shareholders may be able to be benefit through distributions of cash and/or shares and/or      
   rights to subscribe in listings. Given the nature of the investment strategy, the Company does not intend to make additional regular and periodic disclosures or calculations of net asset value outside of the requirements for a NEX Exchange Growth Market   
   traded company. It is anticipated that the Company will hold investments for the medium to long term, although where opportunities exist for shorter term investments, the Company may undertake advantage of such opportunities.  The Directors intend to      
   review the investment strategy on an annual basis and, subject to their review and in the absence of unforeseen circumstances, the Directors intend to adhere to the investment strategy. Changes to the investment strategy may be prompted, inter alia, by    
   changes in government policies or economic conditions which alter or introduce additional investment opportunities. It is the intention of the Directors to invest the Company’s cash resources, as far as practicable, in accordance with the investment       
   strategy. However, due to market and other investment considerations, it may take some time before the cash resources of the Company are fully invested.  It is intended that the funds currently available to the Company will be used to meet general working 
   capital requirements, to undertake due diligence on potential target acquisitions and to make investments in accordance with the investment guidelines described above.

   adopted by the Company are set out below.

   Going Concern                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
   The Directors noted the losses that the Group has made for the Year Ended 31 December 2018. The Directors have prepared cash flow forecasts for the period ending 31 May 2020 which take account of the current cost and operational structure of the Group.  The cost structure of the Group and Parent Company comprises a high proportion of discretionary spend and therefore in the event that cash flows become constrained, costs can be quickly reduced to enable the Group and Parent Company to operate within its available funding.  These forecasts demonstrate that the Group has sufficient cash funds available to allow it to continue in business for a period of at least twelve months from the date of approval of these financial statements. Accordingly, the financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.  It is the prime responsibility of the Board 
   to ensure the Group and Parent Company remains as going concerns. At 31 December 2017, the Group had cash and cash equivalents of £101,000 and borrowings of £nil. The Group and Parent Company has minimal contractual expenditure commitments and the Board considers the present funds sufficient to maintain the working capital of the Group and Parent Company for a period of at least 12 months from the date of signing the Annual Report and Financial Statements. For these reasons the Directors adopt the going concern basis in the preparation of the Financial Statements.

    Basis of Consolidation                                                                                                                                                                      
    The Group financial statements consolidate those of the Company and all of its subsidiary undertakings drawn up to the balance sheet date. Subsidiaries are entities over                   
    which the Company has the power to control, directly or indirectly, the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits from their activities. The Company                        
    obtains and exercises control through voting rights. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date at which control is transferred to the Company. They are                             
    deconsolidated from the date that control ceases.                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Unrealised gains on transactions between the Company and its subsidiaries are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence                    
    of an impairment of the asset transferred. Amounts reported in the financial statements of subsidiaries have been adjusted where necessary to ensure consistency with the                   
    accounting policies adopted by the Group.                                                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Acquisitions of subsidiaries are dealt with by the acquisition method. The acquisition method involves the recognition at fair value of all identifiable assets and                         
    liabilities, including contingent liabilities of the subsidiary, at the acquisition date, regardless of whether or not they were recorded in the financial statements of                    
    the subsidiary prior to acquisition. On initial recognition, the assets and liabilities of the subsidiary are included in the consolidated balance sheet at their fair                      
    values, which are also used as the bases for subsequent measurement in accordance with the Group accounting policies. Goodwill is stated after separating out identifiable                   
    intangible assets. Goodwill represents the excess of acquisition cost over the fair value of the Group's share of the identifiable net assets of the acquired subsidiary                    
    at the date of acquisition. Acquisition costs are written off as incurred.                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Investments in associates are initially recognised at cost and subsequently accounted for using the equity method. Any goodwill or fair value adjustment attributable to                    
    the Group’s share in the associate is not recognised separately and is included in the amount recognised as investment in associate. The carrying amount of the investment                   
    in associates is increased or decreased to recognise the Group’s share of the profit or loss and other comprehensive income of the associate, adjusted where necessary to                   
    ensure consistency with the accounting policies of the Group. Unrealised gains and losses on transactions between the Group and its associates are eliminated to the                        
    extent of the Group’s interest in those entities. Where unrealised losses are eliminated, the underlying asset is also tested for impairment                                                
                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Revenue recognition                                                                                                                                                                         
    Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable and represents amounts from the sales of goods provided in the normal course of                           
    business, net of value added tax and discounts, and is recognised when the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the product have been transferred to a third                       
    party. In the case of sale or return transactions, revenue is only recognised when, and only to the level that, risks and rewards are transferred.                                          
                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Revenue is the invoiced value of goods and services supplied and excludes VAT and other sales-based taxes.

    life on a straight-line basis at the following annual rates: All assets are subject to annual impairment reviews.

    Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value.                                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Financial instruments                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
    Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised on the Group and Company’s statement of financial position when the Group or Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    The Company’s activities give rise to some exposure to the financial risks of changes in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. The Company has no borrowings and is principally funded by equity, maintaining all its funds in bank accounts.     
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Financial assets                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
    Financial assets are classified into the following specified categories; financial assets “at fair value through profit or loss” (FVTPL), “held to maturity” investments, “available for sale” (AFS) financial assets and “loans and receivables”. The          
    classification depends on the nature and purpose of the financial assets and is determined at the time of initial recognition.                                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Available for sale financial assets                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
    Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivative financial assets that are either designated to this category or do not qualify for inclusion in any of the other categories of financial assets. The Group’s available-for-sale financial assets include 
    listed securities. These available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value. Realised Gains and losses are recognised in the income statement and unrealised gains and losses in other comprehensive income and reported within the available-for   
    -sale reserve within equity, except for permanent impairment losses and foreign exchange differences, which are recognised in the income statement. When the asset is disposed of or is determined to be impaired, the cumulative gain or loss recognised in    
    other comprehensive income is reclassified from the equity reserve to the income statement and presented as a reclassification adjustment within other comprehensive income. Interest calculated using the effective interest method and dividends are          
    recognised in the income statement within investment income.                                                                                                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Reversals of impairment losses are recognised in other comprehensive income.

    Share capital is determined using the nominal value of shares that have been issued.                                                                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    The share premium account represents premiums received on the initial issuing of the share capital. Any transaction costs associated with the issuing of shares are deducted from share premium, net of any related income tax benefits.                        
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    The share-based payment reserve represents the cumulative amount which has been expensed in the income statement in connection with share based payments, less any amounts transferred to retained earnings on the exercise of share options.                   
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Foreign currency reserve represents the exchange translation gains/(losses) on converting overseas subsidiaries.                                                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Revaluation reserve represents the unrealised gain or loss on fair/market value movement on available for sale investments and other assets which are valued at their fair value at the balance sheet date.

Bank overdrafts are shown within current liabilities on the balance sheet.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Financial liabilities                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
    Financial liabilities are obligations to pay cash or other financial assets and are recognised when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.  All financial liabilities initially recognised at fair value less transaction   
    costs and thereafter carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method, with interest-related charges recognised as an expense in finance cost in the income statement. A financial liability is derecognised only when the obligation is           
    extinguished, that is, when the obligation is discharged or cancelled or expires.                                                                                                                                                                               
    Trade payables                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
    Trade payables are non-interest-bearing and are initially measured at fair value and thereafter at amortised cost using the effective interest rate.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Taxation                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
    The tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax.                                                                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the period. Taxable profit differs from the net profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other periods and it       
    further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The Group’s liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date.

    Provisions                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
    Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present obligation as a result of a past event, it is probable that the Group will be required to settle that obligation and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. The amount         
    recognised as a provision is the best estimate of the consideration required to settle the present obligation at the balance sheet date, taking into account the risks and uncertainties surrounding the obligation                                             
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Share based payments                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
    The Company issues equity-settled share-based benefits to employees. All equity-settled share-based payments are ultimately recognised as an expense in profit or loss with a corresponding credit to reserves.                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Share-based payments relating to the subsidiary company increase the carrying value of the investment in the subsidiary and are included in the loss on disposal of the subsidiary.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    If vesting periods or other non-market vesting conditions apply, the expense is allocated over the vesting period, based on the best available estimate of the number of share options expected to vest. Estimates are subsequently revised if there is any     
    indication that the number of share options expected to vest differs from previous estimates. Any cumulative adjustment prior to vesting is recognised in the current period. No adjustment is made to any expense recognised in prior periods if share options 
    ultimately exercised are different to that estimated on vesting.                                                                                                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Upon exercise of any share options the proceeds received net of attributable transaction costs are credited to share capital, and where appropriate share premium.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
 3  Critical accounting judgements and key sources of estimation uncertainty                                                                                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    In the process of applying the Group’s accounting policies, as described in note 2, management has made the following judgements that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements.                                   
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    Valuation of share-based payments to employees                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    The Company estimates the expected value of share-based payments to employees and this is charged through the income statement over the vesting period. The fair value is estimated using the Black Scholes valuation model which requires a number of          
    assumptions to be made such as level of share vesting, time of exercise, expected length of service and employee turnover and share price volatility. This method of estimating the value of share-based payments is intended to ensure that the actual value   
    transferred to employees is provided for by the time such payments are made.

     The Company established on 3 October 2014 a share incentive plan ("SIP") and effective as of 3 October 2014. The purpose of the SIP is to incentivise officers, employees and consultants of the Company by the award of ordinary shares in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") for no cost. Ordinary Shares under this plan will not exceed 10 per cent of the Company's issued share capital from time to time without the prior approval of shareholders of the Company.  The Company also established on 3 October 2014, an employee benefit trust called the AfriAg Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") to implement the use of the SIP. The EBT is a discretionary trust for the benefit of directors, employees and consultants of the Company and its subsidiaries.  Accordingly, the trustees of the EBT subscribed for 118,000,000 new ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the Company, at par value per share at an aggregate cost to the Company of £118,000, such shares representing 9% of the so enlarged issued share capital of the Company at the time. The shares held in the EBT are intended to be used to satisfy future awards made by the Company's Remuneration Committee   
     under the SIP. It is intended that any individual awards under the scheme will be subject to vesting and performance conditions. There have been no further subscriptions during the year ended 31 December 2018(2017 : nil). On 1 August 2017, the Company awarded the remaining 18 million EBT shares to various consultants (2017:18 million), leaving nil shares held by the EBT which was wound up during the year ended 31 December 2017.

     A modified Black-Scholes model has been used to determine the fair value of the share options on the date of grant. The fair value is expensed to the income statement on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, which is determined annually. The model assesses a number of factors in calculating the fair value. These include the market price on the date of grant, the exercise price of the share options, the expected share price volatility of the Company’s share price, the expected life of the options, the risk- free rate of interest and the expected level of dividends in future periods. As disclosed in note 5 the share option charge for the period was £nil (2017- £nil)

     The Group’s financial instruments comprise cash at bank and payables which arise in the normal course of business. It is, and has been throughout the period under review, the Group’s policy that no speculative trading in financial instruments shall be undertaken.

     Interest rate risk and liquidity risk The Group is funded by equity, maintaining all its funds in bank accounts. The Group’s policy throughout the period has been to minimise the risk of placing available funds on short term deposit. The short-term deposits are placed with banks for periods up to 1 month according to funding requirements.  The Group had no undrawn committed borrowing facilities at any time during the period.   Currency risk The group is directly exposed to currency risk of its subsidiaries, as they are based in South Africa, and exposed to movement against the South African Rand as their assets, liabilities, revenue and expenditure are denominated therein. The parent company is denominated in pound sterling.   Market risk The group and company’s current exposure to market risk in relation to its AFS investments, which are listed on stock markets throughout the world.   Fair values  Cash and cash equivalents (which are presented as a single class of assets on the face of the balance sheet) comprise cash held by the company with an original maturity of three months or less.
