SUMMARISED CONSOLIDATED RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 28 FEBRUARY 2019

Salient features

•   First full twelve-month period of operation
•   Pleasing operating performance from investments made
•   Total dividend flow from investments higher than expected
•   Positive cash from operating activities
•   Recent relaxation of regulations around licensing of projects below 10 Megawatts
    presents exciting opportunities and significant pipeline

Introduction

Hulisani is an investment holding company that generates dividend income on its
investments, which are largely focused on energy projects ranging from gas, solar PV,
concentrated solar, wind and hydro in South Africa and in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Shareholders should note that this is the first full twelve-month period in which the company
has earned income from investment activities, having acquired its equity investments during
the February 2018 financial year, after it ceased to be a Special Purpose Acquisition
Company (“SPAC”) on 22 March 2017. Accordingly, the comparable year (February 2018)
includes equity investments acquired during the year and income earned for only a portion
of the financial year, whereas the February 2019 financial year includes income from these
investments for the full twelve-month period.

Hulisani’s key portfolio includes:

•   25% interest in GRI Wind Steel;
•   6.7% interest in the Kouga Wind Farm;
•   66% shareholding in the RustMo1 Solar Farm; and
•   An interest in the Avon and Dedisa Peaking Power Plants, held indirectly through a
    convertible loan into Legend Power Solutions (which holds 27% in each of the Avon and
    Dedisa Peaking Power Plants).

Financial review

Group results

Group revenue, which consists of sales of electricity from RustMo1 Solar, increased to R50.4
million from R37.4 million, largely as a result of timing, considering this is the first full twelve-
month period of operation for the Group. Similarly, the increase in Group operating costs from
R57.7 million to R73.3 million is largely attributable to timing considerations.

Considering the significant growth in investments over the past year, Group cash costs rose
to R48.7 million, largely attributable to salaries and non-recurring investment-related
consultancy fees, amounting to R8.8 million. The net cash from operating activities amounts
to R11m.

Company results

Hulisani’s investments are largely paying better dividends than anticipated and, at the holding
company level, dividends increased from R18.1 million to R36.9 million. Dividends received
from Kouga Wind Farm were 60% higher at R24 million, against budgeted dividends of R15
million. The dividend received from RustMo1 Solar Farm was as budgeted at R12,3 million.


The increased investment activity at the holding company resulted in higher operating
expenses of R33.9 million. The operating results before non-cash expenses amount to R3
million. Non-cash expenses include impairment losses, depreciation and expected credit loss
provisions. Operating costs include non-recurring expenses of R9.4m, consisting mainly of
advisory and legal fees relating to the year’s investment activities. The operating results
before non-cash expenses and non-recurring expenses amount to R12.4m.

The following table reflects the group operating financial results for the year ended 28
February 2019 compared to the corresponding financial period:

Headline losses which exclude extraordinary items, such as impairments, to reflect results
from normal operating activities improved to R40.5 million from R56.6 million. The Group’s
basic losses improved to R40.5 million from R116,8 million, which relates largely to an
improvement in impairments in the current year.

While net cash from operating activities for the Group is positive, certain accounting factors
contributed to the losses, which include:
• Amortisation charges on the intangible assets that arose as a result of the purchase
    price allocation at Group level;
• Equity accounted investments’ share of losses, which relate to the investment in GRI.
    GRI manufactures wind towers and has been affected by the delay of the Power
    Purchase Agreements (PPAs), which were recently signed. New wind tower orders
    have now improved its prospects; and
• Provisions for expected credit losses as a result of the implementation of the new
    IFRS 9.

Fair value gain/(loss)

A fair value loss of R25 million was recognised in the statement of profit or loss and other
comprehensive income in our previous year’s Annual Financial Statements on the Legend
Power Solution convertible loan. In the current year under review, a fair value gain of R1.6
million was recognised in the statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income.
This was driven by improved revenue projections in line with increased activity of the plant.

Outlook

South Africa’s energy sector, specifically from renewable sources, remains attractive
especially considering the recent signing of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for
Independent Power Producers (IPPs) by the Minister of the Department of Energy (DOE) and
Eskom. This is a very encouraging development in terms of policy certainty in South Africa
which is further amplified by the government’s commitment to finalise the Integrated
Resource Plan 2019 and commence Round 5 of the Renewable Energy Independent Power
Producer Programme (REIPPP) as well as the Gas to Power Programme (GTPP) in South
Africa.

Hulisani’s portfolio of advanced projects in the renewable energy sector will benefit from the
signing of the recent PPAs and enhance its returns. It will further benefit from the upcoming
REIPPP and GTPP projects. Hulisani’s current projects pipeline in the secondary market is
approximately R1.2 billion in the focus projects – this is in relation to operating and revenue
generating energy assets within South Africa.

Opportunities for IPPs in South Africa are continually being created, especially for captive
power plants where power is generated for specific clients. The recent relaxation of
regulations around licensing of projects below 10 Megawatts presents a great opportunity and
significant pipeline for Hulisani. This provides Hulisani with additional opportunities to pursue
investments to create a pipeline of projects in this area and grow the company’s quality
energy asset base and diversify its sources of revenue. Hulisani will continue to actively build
capability and aggressively pursue opportunities in the renewable energy sector with a view
to achieve greater scale, diversity and flexibility in our asset base. Hulisani is also continually
assessing various forms of funding to enable the conclusion of the focus projects in the
pipeline.

Notes to the Summarised consolidated financial statements for the year
ended 28 February 2019
1. Basis of presentation

The summarised consolidated financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2019 have
been prepared in accordance with the JSE Limited Listings Requirements (Listings
Requirements) and the requirements of the Companies Act, Act 71 of 2008 applicable to
summarised financial statements. The Listings Requirements require financial statements to
be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and
recognition requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the SAICA
Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial
Reporting Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council, and
contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The summarised
consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2019, which have been prepared in
accordance with IFRS.

The summarised consolidated financial statements were prepared under the supervision of
the chief financial officer, MP Dem, CA (SA).


Audit opinion

This summarised report is extracted from audited information but is not itself audited. The
annual financial statements were audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., who expressed
an unmodified opinion thereon. The audited annual financial statements and the auditor’s
report thereon are available for inspection at the Company’s registered office and on the
Company’s website. The directors take full responsibility for the preparation of the
summarised consolidated financial statements and that the financial information has been
correctly extracted from the underlying annual financial statements.

Accounting policies

The accounting policies applied in preparing the summarised consolidated financial
statements are in terms of IFRS and consistent with those applied in the previous annual
financial statements, except for the adoption of new accounting policies as set out below:
• IFRS 15 – Revenue from contracts with customers; Revenue from customer contract
    derived from providing services is recognised in the accounting period in which the
    services are rendered, and at a point in time. The adoption of this new standard had no
    material impact on the revenue recognition.
• IFRS 9 – Financial instruments; All recognised financial assets that are within the scope
    of IFRS 9 are required to be subsequently measured at amortised cost or fair value on
    the basis of the entity’s business model for managing the financial assets and the
    contractual cash flow characteristics of the financial assets. The measurement of
    impairment losses is based on an expected credit loss model, which takes into account
    the probability weighting as well as forward looking information. The impact is detailed in
    note 3.


2. Critical accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of financial statements requires the use of accounting estimates which, by
definition, will seldom equal the actual results. Management also needs to exercise
judgement in applying the group’s accounting policies. Estimates and judgements are
continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including
expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.
The areas involving significant estimates or judgements are:

                                              8
(i)     Investment in associates decision.

Hulisani holds 100% of issued shares in Red Cap Investments (Pty) ("Red Cap”) Ltd and
Eurocape Renewables (Pty) Ltd ("Eurocape"). Red Cap and Eurocape hold 5.46% and
1.21% interest in Kouga Wind Farm (RF) (Pty) Ltd respectively, combined to 6.67%.

Hulisani management made a judgement regarding the classification of this acquisition to an
investment in associates as Hulisani has a directorship representation in the board of the
investee. The board representation indicates a level of significant influence by Hulisani.

(ii)    Estimated fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit and loss.

Hulisani issued a convertible loan to Legend Power Solutions. The group has elected to
classify the financial asset at fair value through profit and loss. The fair value is determined
by using the discounted cash flow method by discounting the dividend income. The expected
cash flows are discounted using an appropriate discount rate. In determining the recoverable
amount, the group made key assumptions on base revenue from underlying plant operations,
discount rate and period of operation. The loan participates in 9% of distributable profits
available to LPS’ shareholders. On maturity the loan will convert to 9% of equity in LPS.

(iii)   Impairment of investments in subsidiaries.

Management identified impairment indicators relating to the investments in Red Cap
Investments (Pty) Ltd (“Red Cap”), Eurocape Renewables (Pty) Ltd (“Eurocape”), Pele
SPV13 (Pty) Ltd and Momentous Technologies (Pty) Ltd (“Momentous”). The nature of the
investments is that the values wind down over time, in line with the passing of the agreed
time in the Power Purchase Agreements with Eskom. The expected cash flows are
discounted using an appropriate discount rate. In determining the expected cash flows, the
group made key assumptions on forecasted revenue and discount rate.

(iv)    Goodwill impairment.

The carrying value of goodwill in the group is R45m and arose on acquisition of a majority
stake in RustMo1 Solar Farm (Pty) Ltd (“RustMo1”). RustMo1 is considered to be a
separately identifiable cash generating unit and goodwill has been allocated to this cash
generating unit. The recoverable amount of goodwill was based on a value in use discounted
cash flow method. In determining the recoverable amount, the group made key assumptions
on forecasted revenue and the discount rate.

(v)      IFRS 9 Expected Credit Losses

Hulisani management made a judgement regarding the assessment of receivables for
impairments using reasonable and supportable information that was available without undue
cost or effort in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 9 to determine the credit loss
allowance of the respective items at the date they were initially recognised and at statement
of financial position date.

The loss allowances for financial assets are based on assumptions about risk of default and
expected loss rates. The group uses judgement in making these assumptions and selecting
the inputs to the impairment calculation, based on the group’s history, existing market
conditions as well as forward looking estimates at the end of each reporting period.

3.   Change in accounting policies

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards on a basis consistent with the prior year except for the adoption of the
following new or revised standards.

Application of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments

In the current year, the group has applied IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (as revised in July
2014) and the related consequential amendments to other IFRSs. IFRS 9 replaces IAS 39
Financial Instruments and introduces new requirements for 1) the classification and
measurement of financial assets and 2) impairment for financial assets. Details of these new
requirements as well as their impact on the group's financial statements are described below.
The group has applied IFRS 9 in accordance with the transition provisions set out in IFRS 9.

Classification and measurement of financial assets

The date of initial application (i.e. the date on which the group has assessed its existing
financial assets and financial liabilities in terms of the requirements of IFRS 9) is 01 March
2018. Accordingly, the group has applied the requirements of IFRS 9 to instruments that
have not been derecognised as at 01 March 2018 and has not applied the requirements to
instruments that have already been derecognised as at 01 March 2018. Comparatives in
relation to instruments that have not been derecognised as at 01 March 2018 have not been
restated. Instead, cumulative adjustments to retained earnings have been recognised in
retained earnings at 01 March 2018.

All recognised financial assets that are within the scope of IFRS 9 are required to be
subsequently measured at amortised cost or fair value on the basis of the entity’s business
model for managing the financial assets and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the
financial assets.

The measurement requirements are summarised below:
• Debt investments that are held within a business model whose objective is to collect the
   contractual cash flows, and that have contractual cash flows that are solely payments of
   principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding, are subsequently measured at
   amortised cost.
• Debt investments that are held within a business model whose objective is both to collect
   the contractual cash flows and to sell the debt instruments, and that have contractual
   cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount
   outstanding, are subsequently measured at fair value through other comprehensive
   income.
• All other debt investments and equity investments are subsequently measured at fair
   value through profit or loss, unless specifically designated otherwise.
• Debt instruments that are subsequently measured at amortised cost or at fair value
   through other comprehensive income are subject to new impairment provisions using an
   expected loss model. This contrasts the incurred loss model of IAS 39.

The directors reviewed and assessed the group's existing financial assets as at 01 March
2018 based on the facts and circumstances that existed at that date and concluded that the
initial application of IFRS 9 has had the following impact on the group's financial assets as
regards to their classification and measurement:




                                             10
Debt instruments

(i)     Reclassification of Ignite preference shares from available-for-sale to
        amortised cost

In line with IFRS 9 requirements management assessed the classification of the preference
shares in reference to the business model of the group. The financial asset meets both
criteria of hold to collect business model test; and solely payments of principal and interest
(SPPI) contractual cash flow characteristics test, as such it has been classified as
subsequently measured at amortised cost under IFRS 9. This resulted to a reclassification of
the Ignite preference shares from available-for-sale to investment at amortised cost. The
impact of the reclassification is noted as a change in accounting policy, and the fair value
adjustment of R773k recognised in the prior year has been reversed in the beginning of the
prior year (Refer to note 7).

The main effects resulting from this reclassification are as follows:


Financial assets – 01 March 2018                        Fair value through         Investment at
                                                     other comprehensive          amortised cost

                                                                         R’000            R’000

The impact of these changes on equity is as follows:

(ii)    Impairment of financial assets

In relation to the impairment of financial assets, IFRS 9 requires an expected credit loss
model as opposed to an incurred credit loss model under IAS 39. The expected credit loss
model requires the group to account for expected credit losses and changes in those
expected credit losses at each reporting date to reflect changes in credit risk since initial
recognition of the financial assets. In other words, it is no longer necessary for a credit event
to have occurred before credit losses are recognised.




                                               11
Specifically, IFRS 9 requires the group to recognise a loss allowance for expected credit
losses on debt investments subsequently measured at amortised cost or at fair value through
other comprehensive income, lease receivables, contract assets and loan commitments and
financial guarantee contracts to which the impairment requirements of IFRS 9 apply.

In particular, IFRS 9 requires the group to measure the loss allowance for a financial
instrument at an amount equal to the lifetime expected credit losses if the credit risk on that
financial instrument has increased significantly since initial recognition, or if the financial
instrument is a purchased or originated credit-impaired financial asset. On the other hand, if
the credit risk on a financial instrument has not increased significantly since initial recognition
(except for a purchased or originated credit-impaired financial asset), the group is required to
measure the loss allowance for that financial instrument at an amount equal to 12 months
expected credit losses. IFRS 9 also provides a simplified approach for measuring the loss
allowance at an amount equal to lifetime expected credit losses for trade receivables,
contract assets and lease receivables in certain circumstances.

As at 01 March 2018, the directors reviewed and assessed the group's existing financial
assets and amounts due from customers for impairment using reasonable and supportable
information that was available without undue cost or effort in accordance with the
requirements of IFRS 9 to determine the credit risk of the respective items at the date they
were initially recognised, and compared that to the credit risk as at 01 March 2018 and 28
February 2019.


Impact on the financial statements

IFRS 9 was adopted without restating comparative information. The reclassifications and the
adjustments arising from the new impairment rules are therefore not reflected in a restated
balance sheet as at 28 February 2018 but are recognised in the opening balance sheet on 1
March 2018.

Application of IFRS 15 Revenue from contracts with customers

In the current year, the group has applied IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers
(as revised in April 2016) and the related consequential amendments to other IFRSs. IFRS
15 replaces IAS 11 Construction Contracts, IAS 18 Revenue, IFRIC 13 Customer Loyalty
Programmes, IFRIC 15 Agreements for the Construction of Real Estate, IFRIC 18 Transfers
of Assets from Customers and SIC-31 Revenue - Barter Transactions Involving Advertising
Services.

IFRS 15 introduces a 5-step approach to revenue recognition. Far more prescriptive
guidance has been added in IFRS 15 to deal with specific scenarios. However, the group
derives revenue from the sale of electricity at a point in time, to a single external customer,
Eskom. Revenue is measured at the transaction price agreed under the contract. The
group recognises revenue when the amount of revenue can be reliably measured. Revenue
is recognised in the amount to which the group has a right to invoice. The customer is
invoiced on a monthly basis and consideration is payable when invoiced.

Therefore, adoption of IFRS 15 did not have a significant impact on revenue recognition.

(b) GRI Wind Steel SA (Pty) Ltd

On 27 July 2017 the Company acquired 50% of the share capital in Pele SPV13 (Pty) Ltd
(“Pele SPV13”) for a cash consideration of R41.25m and subscribed for preference shares
of R41.25m to Pele SPV198 (Pty) Ltd (“Pele SPV198”). The transaction resulted in an
acquisition of a 25% stake in GRI Wind Steel South Africa (Pty) Ltd (“GRI”) by Pele SPV13.
The preference share subscription agreement includes a requirement that Pele SPV198
pledges its shares held in Pele SPV13 to Hulisani until the preference share funding is
repaid. Therefore, until such time the preference shares have been repaid risks and rewards
associated to Pele SPV198 investment in Pele SPV13 have transferred to Hulisani. In
addition, at the end of the reporting period Pele SPV198 has an option to acquire the 50%
interest in Pele SPV13 once the preference share funding has been repaid. The value of the
option however has been determined to be immaterial.

The goodwill relates to the acquisition of the RustMo1 Solar Farm (Pty) Ltd (“RustMo1”) and
it is mainly attributable to the deferred tax liability recognised on the fair value of intangible
assets.

Impairment of goodwill

For impairment testing goodwill acquired through business combinations is allocated to the
RustMo1 CGU, which is also an operating and a reportable segment.
The carrying amount of the goodwill allocated to the CGU:
                                                                         RustMo1            Total

Goodwill                                                                    44,761         44,761
                                                                            44,761         44,761

The group performed its annual impairment test at 28 February 2019. The recoverable
amount of the cash generating unit to which goodwill has been allocated to is based on value
in use discounted cash flow method. No impairment loss was recognised on goodwill in the
period under review.

The recoverable amount has been determined based on a value in use calculation using cash
flow projections from financial model approved by senior management covering the remaining
period of the Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”).

The key inputs to the discounted cash flow model are as follows:
• Discount rate – 13.2%
• Base revenue - Base revenue is determined using the energy rate inflated at CPI over the
   term of the Power Purchase Agreement. The base revenue in the cash flow projections,
   year ending 28 February 2020, is R51.6 million.

The model is most sensitive to changes in base revenue and discount rate.
• If all assumptions remained unchanged, a 5% decrease in base revenue results in a
   decrease in the recoverable amount, and further impairment of R9m;
• If all assumptions remained unchanged, a 1% increase in discount rate results in a
   decrease in the recoverable amount, and further impairment of R6m.

12. Contingencies

Momentous Technology (“MT”) is the original developer “RustMo1” project and initially held
15% of the shares in RustMo1. Momentous acquired a further 51% in RustMo1 in the prior
year from Evolution One en Commandite Partnership. The relationship between inter alia
Evolution and MT in respect of their shareholding in Rustmo1 was regulated by an Amended
and Restated Shareholders Agreement (the “SHA”), dated 4 November 2012. The SHA
entitled Evolution to subscribe for additional shares in RustMo1 should the RustMo1 project
Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”) be lower than the agreed IRR on the Adjustment Date (being
16 November 2016). Having undertaken its own calculations, Evolution was of the view that it
did not achieve the minimum project agreed IRR and sought to enforce its right to subscribe
for shares in RustMo1 on the Adjustment Date.

On 2 November 2018, Evolution initiated arbitration proceedings at the Arbitration Foundation
Southern Africa to enforce its rights. Management has engaged external legal counsel and
believes it has a strong case and no provision is required at this point.

Information about valuation techniques and inputs used to derive level 3 fair values
convertible loan

The key unobservable inputs, together with the weighted average range of probabilities, are
as follows:


                                          Relationship of unobservable inputs to fair value
                                          High                          Low
Discount rate                             The higher       the    The lower the discount
                                          discount rate the lower rate the higher the fair
                                          the fair value          value

Base revenue from plant operation         The higher the base      The lower the base
                                          revenue the higher the   revenue the lower the fair
                                          fair value               value

Period of operation                       The longer the period the The shorter the period the
                                          higher the fair value     lower the fair value



The fair value is determined by using the discounted cash flow method by discounting the
dividend income. LPS has underlying investment in the Avon and Dedisa open cycle
gas/diesel turbine (OCGT) plants. The dividend income is based on the operational results of
the Avon and Dedisa plant.
The key inputs to the discounted cash flow model of the underlying operational plants are as
follows:
1.       Discount rate – 13.6%

2.      Base revenue from plant operation – Base revenue is determined using the Power
        Purchase Agreement capacity rate for Dedisa and for Avon. The base revenue in the
        cash flow projections of Dedisa and Avon, year ending 28 February 2020, is R2.5
        billion.

3.      Period of operation - 30 years

The model is most sensitive to changes in base revenue from operations, discount rate and
period of operation.
If all assumptions remained unchanged, a 5% decrease in base revenue results in a
further reduction in fair value of R14m;
If all assumptions remained unchanged, a 1% increase in discount rate results in a further
reduction in fair value of R8m.
If all assumptions remained unchanged, a 5 year reduction in the period of operation results
in a further reduction in fair value of R9m.




                                            24
Valuation processes applied by the Group

The group finance department obtains input from independent valuation experts in
performing valuations of financial assets required for financial reporting purposes, including
level 3 fair values. The valuations expert communicates directly with the chief financial officer
(CFO).
The convertible loan is valued by using the Dividend Discount Model. The discount rates
used for the valuations are the prevailing market rates at the time of the valuations.
The group conducts valuations twice a year, at the interim financial reporting period and also
at the year-end reporting
