FY16 audited accounts and Appendix 4E: Comparison of profit and loss items (refer to link below)
The difference in the Net Profit after Tax in the audited accounts and the preliminary report primarily relates to the accounting treatment of warrants issued to the lender in respect of the USD20m working capital facility (as announced to the ASX 1 July 2015). In the audited accounts, the value of the warrants granted has been recorded in the "Other Income" line, and the partial amortisation of those warrants has been added to the "Finance Costs" line.
As previously announced, the figure for professional and consultants fees includes the non-recurring merger and acquisition costs of $11.8m.
In addition, the working capital facility was reclassified from a current liability in the preliminary report, to a non-current liability in the audited accounts. A conservative approach was taken at the time of the preliminary report, with the loan classified as current because it was refinanced in July 2016. However a strict interpretation of the accounting standards requires the position to be examined as at 30 June 2016, which was prior to the refinancing. As at that date, the loan was not repayable until October 2018, and therefore it has been classified as a non-current liability.
Note that there is no change to operational revenues, or underlying EBITDA.
