Outlook

 

·        Recent strength in the gold price an encouraging indicator - approximately 90% of the Company's revenues are linked to gold

·        Equity markets showing renewed interest in the exploration sector as a result of the stronger gold price

·        Strategic expansion into West Africa continuing to generate multiple new opportunities

·        West Africa remains a high growth region, particularly in the gold sector with relatively under-developed gold deposits

·        Business development activity securing new business, including with new clients in existing operational areas, together with expansion into new operational countries

·        Strong cash generation from mining companies driving increased exploration budgets

·        Solid pipeline of new contracts commencing in H2 provide confidence in growth plans

 

The Group maintains its revenue guidance range of $110 - $120 million for 2019, with revenue expected to increase in H2 2019, consistent with 2018.

 

 Commenting on the results, Jamie Boyton, Executive Chairman of Capital Drilling, said:

 

"We are pleased to report the Group has delivered another strong performance for the first half, delivering solid financial results while continuing to pursue strategic growth plans. Particularly pleasing is the strong cash result, despite outflows associated with establishing operations in Burkina Faso and mobilisation for a new contract in Mali. Our balance sheet remains robust due to ongoing prudent cost management. As a result of this performance, we have today announced an interim dividend to shareholders of 0.7 cents per share, representing a 17% increase on the previous corresponding period.

 

Our strategic expansion into West Africa continues to yield results which will diversify our revenue base. Our increased presence in the region, together with business development activity undertaken during the half has developed a solid pipeline of new contracts, including a number of new clients and further expansion of operations into Burkina Faso and Nigeria. This positions the company well for the remainder of the year, with the majority of these contracts expected to contribute to revenue from late Q3.

 

We continue to target mine-site based contracts and it is extremely pleasing to have announced the award of a further three long-term contracts during the period. Encouragingly, MSALAB's three-year laboratory management contract with Kinross (Mauritania) sees the investment into developing infrastructure to grow the business coming to fruition. Capital Drilling now has a solid portfolio of eight long-term mine-site based contracts, providing revenue stability across the cycle.

 

Additionally, our existing long-term contracts continue to perform strongly, maintaining a robust ARPOR result. Our underground grade control drilling contract with Resolute Mining (Mali) was extended for a further one year, a reflection of our excellent service delivery.

 

Safety remains at the core of our operations and we have achieved exceptional results during the half, with safety milestones achieved across all our existing long-term contract sites - Geita and North Mara (Tanzania), Sukari (Egypt), Syama (Mali) and Tasiast (Mauritania).

 

We made a strategic decision in the half year to increase the size of our drill for equity programme in line with increased business development activity in West Africa. This proved successful in supporting a number of our contract wins.

 

The recent strength in the gold price is a further positive indicator for Capital Drilling given the sector represents 90% of our overall business, by revenue. Additionally, mining companies are generating stronger cash flows that are driving increased exploration budgets.

 

 

 

The recent announcement of six new contract awards, together with ongoing strong performance at existing long-term operations, places the Group in a strong position for the second half of 2019. We continue to grow and consolidate our presence in the high growth region of West Africa and remain confident this will provide further growth opportunities for the remainder of the year."

Such statements are based on a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management at the time, are subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties. Capital Drilling cautions that such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual financial results, performance or achievements of Capital Drilling to be materially different than the Company's estimated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements. These factors include the inherent risks involved in exploration and development of mineral properties, changes in economic conditions, changes in the worldwide price of commodities and project execution delays, many of which are beyond the control of Capital Drilling.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REVIEW REPORT ON INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF CAPITAL DRILLING LIMITED

 

We have been engaged by the company to review the condensed consolidated set of interim financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 June 2019 which comprises the condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive income, condensed consolidated statement of financial position, condensed consolidated statement of changes in equity, the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows and related notes 1 to 18. We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly financial report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed consolidated set of financial statements.

 

This report is made solely to the company in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410 "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board ("IAASB").  Our work has been undertaken so that we might state to the company those matters we are required to state to it in an independent review report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company, for our review work, for this report, or for the conclusions we have formed.

 

Directors' responsibilities

 

The half-yearly financial report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors.  The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly financial report in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

As disclosed in note 1, the annual financial statements of the group are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (the "IASB").  The condensed consolidated set of interim financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" issued by the IASB.

 

Our responsibility

 

Our responsibility is to express to the Group a conclusion on the condensed consolidated set of interim financial statements in the half-yearly financial report 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 Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the IASB. 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 condensed consolidated set of interim financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 June 2019 is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 as issued by the IASB and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

CAPITAL DRILLING LIMITED

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the six months ended 30 June 2019

 

1.

Basis of presentation and accounting policies

 

 

 

Preparation of the condensed consolidated interim financial statements

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Capital Drilling Limited and Subsidiaries ("Capital Drilling" or the "Group") as at and for the six months ended 30 June 2019 (the "Interim Financial Statements") have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard ("IAS") No. 34, "Interim Financial Reporting". They should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in the Group's Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2018 which have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). The Interim Financial Statements have been reviewed in terms of International Standard on Review Engagements (ISRE) 2410.

 

 

 

Accounting policies

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared under the going concern basis under the historical cost convention, except for certain financial instruments which are measured at fair value.  The Group has adopted a number of new standards and interpretations effective on or before 1 January 2019, which were described in note 2 of the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018. The adoption of these standards and interpretations did not have a material impact on the financial statements. The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation have been followed in these condensed consolidated financial statements as were applied in the preparation of the Group's financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 except for new accounting policies adopted during the year described in Note 4.

 

 

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS recognition and measurement principles requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Management reviews its estimates on an on-going basis using currently available information. Changes in facts and circumstances may result in revised estimates and actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

 

2.

Operations in the interim period

 

 

 

Capital Drilling Limited is incorporated in Bermuda. The Group provides drilling services including but not limited to exploration, development, grade control and blast hole drilling services to mineral exploration and mining companies located in emerging and developing markets. The Group also provides some equipment rental and information technology services to mining and mining related companies.

 

 

During the six months ended 30 June 2019, the Group provided drilling services in Egypt, Mauritania, Mali, Tanzania, Botswana and Ivory Coast.

 

 

The seasonality of the Group's operations has no significant impact on the condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

3.

Taxation

 

 

 

Capital Drilling Limited is incorporated in Bermuda. No taxation is payable on the results of the Bermuda business. Taxation for other jurisdictions is calculated in terms of the legislation and rates prevailing in the respective jurisdictions.

 

 

CAPITAL DRILLING LIMITED

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the six months ended 30 June 2019

 

3.

Taxation (continued)

 

 

 

The Group operates in multiple jurisdictions with complex legal and tax regulatory environments. In certain of these jurisdictions, the Group has taken income tax positions that management believes are supportable and are intended to withstand challenge by tax authorities. Some of these positions are inherently uncertain and include those relating to transfer pricing matters and the interpretation of income tax laws. The Group periodically reassesses its tax positions. Changes to the financial statement recognition, measurement, and disclosure of tax positions is based on management's best judgement given any changes in the facts, circumstances, information available and applicable tax laws. Considering all available information and the history of resolving income tax uncertainties, the Group believes that the ultimate resolution of such matters will not likely have a material effect on the Group's financial position, statements of operations or cash flows.

 

Due to the tax charge calculations in certain countries in which the Group operates being based on revenues instead of profits, the consolidated taxation expense for the period is not directly linked to profits and losses.

 

 

4.

IFRS 16 - Leases

 

IFRS 16 'Leases' replaces IAS 17 'Leases' along with three Interpretations (IFRIC 4 'Determining whether an Arrangement contains a Lease', SIC 15 'Operating Leases-Incentives' and SIC 27 'Evaluating the Substance of Transactions Involving the Legal Form of a Lease'). The new Standard has been applied using the modified retrospective approach, with the cumulative effect of adopting IFRS 16 being recognised in equity as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings for the current period. Prior periods have not been restated. This means comparative information is still reported under IAS 17 and IFRIC 4.

 

For any new contracts entered into on or after 1 January 2019, the Group considers whether a contract is, or contains a lease. A lease is defined as 'a contract, or part of a contract, that conveys the right to use an asset (the underlying asset) for a period of time in exchange for consideration'. To apply this definition the Group assesses whether the contract meets three key evaluations which are whether:

·     the contract contains an identified asset, which is either explicitly identified in the contract or implicitly specified by being identified at the time the asset is made available to the Group

·     the Group has the right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from use of the identified asset throughout the period of use, considering its rights within the defined scope of the contract

·     the Group has the right to direct the use of the identified asset throughout the period of use. The Group assess whether it has the right to direct 'how and for what purpose' the asset is used throughout the period of use.

                                                                                               

Measurement and recognition of leases as a lessee                                                                    

At lease commencement date, the Group recognises a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet. The right-of-use asset is measured at cost, which is made up of the initial measurement of the lease liability, any initial direct costs incurred by the Group, an estimate of any costs to dismantle and remove the asset at the end of the lease, and any lease payments made in advance of the lease commencement date (net of any incentives received). The Group depreciates the right-of-use assets on a straight-line basis from the lease commencement date to the earlier of the end of the useful life of the right-of-use asset or the end of the lease term. The Group also assesses the right-of-use asset for impairment when such indicators exist.

4.

IFRS 16 - Leases (continued)

 

 

 

 

Measurement and recognition of leases as a lessee (continued)

 

At the commencement date, the Group measures the lease liability at the present value of the lease payments unpaid at that date, discounted using the interest rate implicit in the lease if that rate is readily available or the Group's incremental borrowing rate. Generally, the Group uses its incremental borrowing rate as the discount rate. Subsequent to initial measurement, the liability will be reduced for payments made and increased for interest. It is remeasured to reflect any reassessment or modification, or if there are changes in in-substance fixed payments.

 

 

The Group has applied judgement to determine the lease term for some lease contracts in which it is a lessee that include renewal options. The assessment of whether the Group is reasonably certain to exercise such options impact the lease terms, which significantly affects the amount of lease liabilities and rights of use of assets recognised.

 

The Group has elected to account for short-term leases and leases of low-value assets using the practical expedients. Instead of recognising a right-of-use asset and lease liability, the payments in relation to these are recognised as an expense in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Transition

Previously, the Group classified property leases as operating leases under IAS 17. Some leases include an option to renew the lease after the end of the non-cancellable period.

 

At transition, for leases classified as operating leases under IAS 17, lease liabilities were measured at the present value of the remaining lease payments, discounted at the Group's incremental borrowing rate as at 01 January 2019. Rights-of-use of assets are measured at either:

-             their carrying amount as if IFRS 16 had been applied since the commencement date, discounted using the lessee's incremental borrowing rate at the date of initial application.

-             an amount equal to the lease liability, adjusted by the amount of any prepaid or accrued lease payments.

 

The Group used the following practical expedients when applying IFRS 16 to leases previously classified as operating lease under IAS 17:

-             Applied the exemption not to recognise rights-of-use assets and liabilities for leases with less than 12 months of lease term.

-             Exclude initial direct costs from measuring the right-of-use asset at the date of initial application.

-             Used hindsight when determining the lease term if the contract contains options to extend or terminate the lease.

 

 

Impacts on financial statements

 

(i)    Impacts on transition                                                                                          

 

 

On transition to IFRS 16, the Group recognised additional right-of-use assets and additional lease liabilities, recognising the difference in retained earnings. The impact on transition is summarised below.

Segmental analysis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Operating segments are identified on the basis of internal management reports regarding components of the Group. These are regularly reviewed by the Chairman in order to allocate resources to the segments and to assess their performance. Operating segments are identified based on the regions of operations. For the purposes of the segmental report, the information on the operating segments have been aggregated into the principal regions of operations of the Group. The Group's reportable segments under IFRS 8 are therefore:

 

-   Africa:

Derives revenue from the provision of drilling services, equipment rental and IT support services.

 

-   Rest of world:

Derives revenue from the provision of drilling services, equipment rental and IT support services.

 

 

 

 

Information regarding the Group's operating segments is reported below. At 30 June 2019, management reviewed the composition of the Group's operating segments and the allocations of operations to the reportable segments.

Contingencies

 

Zambia Tax:

 

As disclosed in the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018, Capital Drilling (Zambia) Limited is a party to various tax claims made by the Zambian Revenue Authority for the tax years 2007 to 2013. On 30 April 2015, the Company received a tax assessment from the Zambian Revenue Authority totalling ZMW 144.1 million (USD equivalent: $13.1 million), inclusive of penalties and interest. The claims relate to various taxes, including income tax, value added tax, payroll tax and withholding tax. Since the assessment date, Management have responded in detail to these claims, providing the Zambian Revenue Authority with detailed analysis and arguments justifying the Company's tax position. No amount has yet been paid in this regard and no additional communication or actions were received from the Zambian Revenue Authority to date. Capital Drilling (Zambia) is currently dormant with no drilling revenue since November 2014. An amount of $1.6 million has been raised relating to certain areas of the claim, however the directors are of the opinion that a significant portion of the tax claim by the Zambia Revenue Authority is without merit.

Contingencies (continued)

 

 

 

Tanzania tax:

 

 

 

Capital Drilling (T) Ltd is party to a payroll tax claim made by the Tanzanian Revenue Authority (TRA) for the tax years 2009-2015. During the financial year ended 31 December 2016, the company received an immediate demand notice from the (TRA) for Tanzanian Shillings (TZS) of 18,598,361,197 ($ 8,374,660), inclusive of penalties and interest. Management objected to the assessment raised by the TRA and requested the calculations of the notice. In order to object, according to Tanzanian Tax Law Sections 51(1) and (5) of the TAA 2015, a taxpayer is required to pay the tax amount not in dispute or one third of the assessed tax whichever is greater. It is prudent to note that the Finance Act in 2016 added a further subsection (9) in Section 51 regarding tax objections and assessments. The said amendment provides: "Where the taxpayer fails to pay the amount stated under subsection (5) within the time provided therein, the assessed tax decision shall be confirmed as final tax assessment in terms of section 15(1)(a) of the Tax Revenue Appeals Act." In accordance with the above-mentioned legislation, management reached an agreement with the TRA to pay TZS1,500,000,000 ($0.7 million) in lieu of the one third of the assessed value. This amount was fully provided for in the 2016 Annual Financial Statements. In June 2017 the TRA provided their workings to Capital Drilling (T) Ltd. Capital Drilling (T) Ltd identified differences with the TRA on both the specific merits and methodology used to determine the value. Capital Drilling (T) Ltd has maintained an engaging relationship with the TRA to find closure and resolution to this matter. In order to continue the discussions and negotiations with the TRA, Capital Drilling (T) Ltd has, at the request of the TRA, paid an additional amount of TZS1,1000,000 ($0.5 million), increasing the total amount paid to TZS2,600,000 ($1,129 million) as at 31 December 2018. This is in line with the aforementioned Tanzanian Tax Law. While there has been continued communication with the TRA throughout the year, the matter has not yet been finalised.

 

16.

Events post the reporting date

 

 

 

The directors proposed that an interim dividend of 0.7 cent per share be paid to shareholders on 27 September 2019. This dividend has not been included as a liability in these condensed consolidated interim financial statements. The proposed dividend is payable to all shareholders on the Register of Members on 6 September 2019. The total estimated interim dividend to be paid is $1.0 million (2018: $0.8 million). The payment of this dividend will have no tax consequences for the group.

 

 

17.

Going concern

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group has set specific objectives and also has policies and processes in place to manage its capital and its financial, credit risk and liquidity risks.

 

 

The Group has borrowings and debt facilities which, together with its clients' receipts, fund its day to day working capital requirements. Volatile economic conditions may create uncertainty particularly over (a) the level of demand for the Group's services; (b) exchange rate fluctuations against the US Dollar and thus the consequence for the cost of the Group's direct costs; and (c) the availability of bank financing in the foreseeable future.

 

 

The Group's forecasts and projections, taking into account potential changes in its performance, show that the Group should be able to operate within the level of its capital structure. The Group continuously discusses its future borrowing and / or refinancing needs with its bankers and no matters have been drawn to its attention to suggest that these needs may not be met on acceptable terms.

 

The directors confirm that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. The Group continues to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

Financial instruments that are measured in the consolidated statement of financial position or disclosed at fair value require disclosure of fair value measurements by level based on the following fair value measurement hierarchy:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level 1:

quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

 

 

Level 2:

inputs other than quoted prices included within level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (that is, as prices) or indirectly (that is, derived from prices); and

 

 

 

Level 3:

inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (that is, unobservable inputs).

b)   Valuation techniques used to determine fair values

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group's FVTPL financial assets are listed equity securities in the mining industry that are measured at fair value at the end of each reporting period. The FVTOCI investments are designated as level 1 in the fair value hierarchy. Their fair value is determined using quote bid prices in an active market.

 

 

 

 

 

The fair values of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market are determined using standard valuation techniques and are classified in level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. These valuation techniques maximise the use of observable market data where available and rely as little as possible on Group specific estimates. The fair values have been assessed to approximate their carrying amounts based on a discounted cash flow assessment. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

c)   Fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (level 3)

STATEMENT OF DIRECTORS' RESPONSIBILITY

For the six months ended 30 June 2019

 

 

 

The directors are responsible for the maintenance of adequate accounting records and the preparation and integrity of the condensed consolidated interim financial statements and related information.  The auditors are responsible for expressing a review conclusion on the condensed consolidated interim financial information based on their review.

 

The directors are also responsible for the Group's systems of internal financial control.  These are designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance as to the reliability of the financial statements, and to adequately safeguard, verify and maintain accountability for the Group's assets, and to prevent and detect misstatement and loss.  Nothing has come to the attention of the directors to indicate that any material breakdown in the functioning of these controls, procedures and systems has occurred during the six months under review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We confirm that to the best of our knowledge:

 

 

 

a)

the condensed set of consolidated interim financial statements, which has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Boards gives a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit or loss of the Group as required by DTR4.2.4R;

 

b)

the interim management report includes a fair review of the information required by DTR 4.2.7R and DTR4.2.8; and

 

c)

there has been no significant individual related party transactions during the first six months of the financial year and nor have there been any significant changes in the Group's related party relationships from those reported in the Group's annual financial statement for the year ended 31 December 2018.

 

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis since the directors believe that the Group has adequate resources in place to continue in operation for the foreseeable future.

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements were approved by the board of directors on 19 August 2019.

Principal Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Group operates in environments that pose various risks and uncertainties. Aside from the generic risks that face all businesses, the Group's business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially and adversely affected by any of the risks described below.

 

These risks should not be regarded as a complete and comprehensive statement of all potential risks and uncertainties nor are they listed in order of magnitude or probability. Additional risks and uncertainties that are not presently known to the Directors, or which they currently deem immaterial, may also have an adverse effect on the Group's operating results, financial condition and prospects.

 

The principal risks associated with the business are:

 

Area

Description

Mitigation

Fluctuation in levels of mining activity

The Group is highly dependent on the levels of mineral exploration, development and production activity within the markets in which it operates.   A reduction in exploration, development and production activities, or in the budgeted expenditure of mining and mineral exploration companies, will cause a decline in the demand for drilling rigs and drilling services, as was evident in the 2014 and 2015 financial years.

The Group is seeking to balance these risks by building a portfolio of long term drilling contracts and expanding into new geographic areas and the implementation of its Lean Operating Model.

Reliance on key customers

The Group's revenue is reliant on a small number of key customers. A loss of a key customer, or a significant reduction in the demand for drilling provided to a key customer will have a significant adverse effect on the Group's revenues.

The Group has entered into long term contracts with its key customers for periods between two to five years. Contract renewal negotiations are initiated well in advance of expiry of contracts to ensure contract renewals are concluded without interruption to drilling services.

 

The Group has and continues to monitor projects closely and invest a significant amount of time into client relationship and service level monitoring at all levels of the business. A key part of this process is the quarterly project steering committee meetings with key client stakeholders that provide a forum for monitoring and reporting on project performance and performance indicators, contractual issues, pricing and renewal.

 

Operating risks

Operations are subject to various risks associated with drilling including, in the case of employees, personal injury, malaria and loss of life and, in the Group's case, damage and destruction to property and equipment, release of hazardous substances in to the environment and interruption or suspension of drill site operations due to unsafe drill operations. The occurrence of any of these events could adversely impact the Group's business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, lead to legal proceedings and damage the Group's reputation. In particular, clients are placing an increasing focus on occupational health and safety, and deterioration in the Group's safety record may result in the loss of key clients.

The Executive Chairman, Executive Leadership Team and managers provide leadership to projects on the management of these risks and actively engage with all levels of employees. The Group have implemented and continue to monitor and update a range of health and safety policies and procedures including equipment standards and standard work procedures. Employees are provided with training regarding risks associated with their employment, policies and standard work procedures.

 

Health and Safety statistics and incident reports are monitored throughout our projects and the various management structures of the Group, including the HSSE committee. Where necessary policies and procedures are updated to reflect developments and improvement needs.

 

The Group maintains adequate insurance policies to provide insurance cover against operating risks.

Currency fluctuations

The Group receives the majority of its revenues in US dollars. However, some of the Group's costs are in other currencies in the jurisdictions in which it operates.   Foreign currency fluctuations and exchange rate risks between the value of the US dollar and the value of other currencies may increase the cost of the Group's operations and could adversely affect the financial results.  As a result, the Group is exposed to currency fluctuations and exchange rate risks. 

To minimise the Group's risk, the Group tries to match the currency of operating costs with the currency of revenue. Funds are pooled centrally in the head office bank accounts to the maximum extent possible. The group have implemented procedures to allow for the repatriation of funds to the Group's Head Office bank accounts from jurisdictions where exchange control regulations are in effect. The group has also increased their treasury capabilities by appointing a group treasury manager.

Political, economic and legislative risk

The Group operates in a number of jurisdictions where the political, economic and legal systems are less predictable than in countries with more developed industrial structures.  Significant changes in the political, economic or legal landscape in such countries may have a material effect on the Group's operations in those countries.  Potential impacts include restrictions on the export of currency, expropriation of assets, imposition of royalties or other taxes targeted at mining companies, and requirements for local ownership.  Political instability can also result in civil unrest, industrial action and nullification of existing agreements, mining permits or leases.  Any of these may adversely affect the Group's operations or results of those operations.  The Group has invested in a number of countries thereby diversifying exposure to any single jurisdiction.

The Group monitors political and regulatory developments in the jurisdictions it operates in through a number of service providers and advisors.

 

Senior management regularly reports to the Board on any political or regulatory changes in the jurisdictions we operate in.

Where significant events occur, we work closely with our clients, advisors and other stakeholders to address these events.

Adjusted EBITDA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA represents profit or loss for the year before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortisation adjusted for share of income (loss) from associates, interest income, finance charges, fair value adjustments on financial assets at fair value through profit and loss and realised gain (loss) on FVTOCI shares.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is non-IFRS financial measures that is used as supplemental financial measures by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess our financial and operating performance. These non-IFRS financial measures will assist our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period.

 

We believe that including Adjusted EBITDA assists our management and investors in: -

i.      understanding and analysing the results of our operating and business performance, and

ii.    monitoring our ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold our shares. This is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of depreciation and amortisation, income (loss) from associate, interest income, finance charges, fair value adjustment on financial assets at fair value through profit and loss and realised gain (loss) on FVTOCI shares, which may significantly affect comparability of results of operations between periods.

 

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered as alternatives to, or as substitutes for, or superior to, profit or loss for the period or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with IFRS. Further other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently from how we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                   

 

 

 

Net cash (debt)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Net cash (debt) is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as cash and cash equivalents less short term and long-term debt.

Management believes that net cash (debt) is a useful indicator of the Group's indebtedness, financial flexibility and capital structure because it indicates the level of borrowings after taking account of cash and cash equivalents within the Group's business that could be utilised to pay down the outstanding borrowings. Management believes that net debt can assist securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate the Group. Net cash (debt) and similar measures are used by different companies for differing purposes and are often calculated in ways that reflect the circumstances of those companies. Accordingly, caution is required in comparing net debt as reported by the Group to net cash (debt) of other companies.

 

 

CAPITAL DRILLING LIMITED

APPENDIX: GLOSSARY AND ALTERNATIVE PERFORMANCE MEASURES (UNREVIEWED) (Continued)

 

 

Net Asset Value per share (cents)

 

 

Net Asset Value per share (cents) is a non-financial measure taking into consideration the total equity over the weighted average number of shares used in the calculation of basic earnings per share.

 

Management believe that the net asset value per share is a useful indicator of the level of safety associated with each individual share because it indicates the amount of money that a shareholder would get if the Group were to liquidate. Management believes that net asset value per share can assist securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate the Group.

 

Net asset value per share and similar measures are used by different companies for different purposes and are often calculated in ways that reflect the circumstances of those companies. Accordingly, caution is required when comparing net asset value per share as reported by the Group to net asset value per share of other companies.

 

 

Average revenue per operating rig

 

ARPOR is a non-financial measure defined as the average drilling specific revenue for the period divided by the monthly average active operating rigs. Drilling specific revenue excludes revenue generated from shot crew, a blast hole service that does not require a rig to perform but forms part of drilling.  Management uses this indicator to assess the operational performance across the board on a period by period basis even if there is an increase or decrease in rig utilisation.
