NOTES TO THE SUMMARISED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The accounting policies applied in the preparation of these annual results for the year ended 28 February 2018 are in terms of
IFRS and are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the audited annual financial statements. These are consistent
with prior year.
BASIS OF PREPARATION
The summarised consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the
recognition and measurement principles of International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and the SAICA Financial
Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial
Reporting Standards Council presented in accordance with the minimum content, including disclosures, prescribed by IAS
34: Interim Financial Reporting applied to year-end reporting, the Companies Act of South Africa, and the JSE Limited's
Listings Requirements ("Listings Requirements").
These summarised financial results have been extracted from the annual financial statements of RHB which have been
prepared under the supervision of the Financial Director, Dion Mhlaba CA(SA). These summarised annual financial results
have been audited by the auditors. The Board takes full responsibility for the preparation of this report and ensuring that the
financial information has been correctly prepared.
The Board has considered the implications of IFRS 8: Operating segments and are of the opinion that the current operations
of the Group constitute one operating segment.
Management fees have been paid by the Company to RH Bophelo Management Company Proprietary Limited for providing
operational management services. Management fees are 0,7% per quarter of the total capital raised, while the Company is
classified as a Special Purpose Acquisition Company ("SPAC"). Management fees paid to RH Bophelo Management
Company Proprietary Limited in the current year amounted to R2 458 055 (nil in the prior year). An amount of R776 616 (nil
in the prior year) was included in other payables at year end.
Fees of R2 900 000 (nil in the prior year) were paid by the Company to RH Bophelo Operating Company Proprietary Limited,
a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, for the costs related to the operations of the business. An amount of R26 403 (nil
in the prior year) was included in other payables at year end.
Professional fees of R11 508 300 were paid by the Company to Thirdway Investments Proprietary Limited. These payments
were made for capital raising and corporate advisory services. Thirdway Investments Proprietary Limited owns 30% of RH
Bophelo Management Company Proprietary Limited and a non executive director of the Company is a partner in Thirdway
Investments Proprietary Limited.
ISSUE OF STATED CAPITAL
During the year, the Company raised R499 999 999 through the issue of 49 999 999 "A" ordinary shares at R10 a share. In the
prior year, the Company had 1"A" ordinary share in issue.
The Company also issued 1 "B" share for R1 to RH Bophelo Management Company Proprietary Limited. In the prior year,
the Company had no "B" shares in issue.
The net asset value per share at year end is R9,91 (prior year: R1).
The key financial results reflected in these inaugural financial results are:
- RHB recorded an operating group profit of R7 835 912 for its first period of operation, comprised almost entirely of
costs associated with the listing of the Company on the JSE, due diligence expenses and interests earned from the funds
- Basic earnings per share and headline earnings per share amounted 24,7 cents. The reported net income should be
viewed in the context of the following:
- RHB listed on the JSE on 12 July 2017, and did not engage in any commercial trade prior to listing;
- Apart from the 50 000 000 shares issued in preparation of the listing, no other shares were issued;
- The subscription amount of R500 million less all permissible expenses is kept in the escrow account with RMB
until the Company is reclassified from a SPAC to the investment entity sector of the JSE;
- Total interest earned as at 28 February 2018 was R20 827 263;
- The expenses reported for this period is therefore comprised of permissible expenses incurred to advance and
achieve RHB's JSE listing, and operational expenses of R12 522 732; and
- RHB acquired assets only on 26 April 2018 and therefore any income earned is not indicative of the Company's
At the time of listing, the Board made it known to the market that the Company was seeking the acquisition of a viable asset
in the Healthcare industry. Since the listing, management has been diligently reviewing various potential acquisition
opportunities and is continuously engaging with potential vendors on propositions that could satisfy the Company's vision
and values. The Company has sufficient resources to make a significant investment, using cash, equity and debt, or any
combination thereof as deemed appropriate by management and the Board.
BASIC AND HEADLINE EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic earnings per share was based on profit after tax of R7 835 912 and weighted average number of ordinary shares of
31 780 822 issued and subscribed on 12 July 2017.
At reporting date RHB had not concluded a viable asset acquisition, therefore the income earned in the current year is not
indicative of the Company's prospects.
Headline earnings per share (cents) 24,7 -
Diluted headline earnings per share (cents) 24,7 -
