BASIS OF PREPARATION AND ACCOUNTING POLICIES  

 

The summary Group financial statements for the period ended 1 March 2015 are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements for abridged reports, and the requirements of the Companies Act applicable to summary financial statements. The Listings Requirements require abridged reports to be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements 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 and to also, as a minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The summary Group financial statements does not include all the information required by IFRS for full financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the 2015 integrated annual report. The accounting policies applied in the preparation of the Group financial statements, from which the summary Group financial statements were derived, are in terms of International Financial Reporting Standards and are consistent with the accounting policies applied in the preparation of the previous Group annual financial statements. These results have been audited by KPMG Inc., whose unqualified report is available for inspection at the registered office of the Company. The auditor’s report does not necessarily cover all of the information contained in this financial report. Shareholders are therefore advised that in order to obtain a full understanding of the nature of the auditor’s work, they should obtain a copy of that report together with the accompanying financial information from the registered office of the Company. These financial statements have been prepared by the Finance Division under the supervision of the Public Officer, Mr Bakar Jakoet CA(SA).

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS  

 

All financial instruments held by the Group are measured at amortised cost, with the exception of derivative financial instruments and certain items included in trade and other payables. The latter is measured at fair value through profit or loss, is categorised into level 2 of the fair value hierarchy and is considered to be immaterial. Level 2 is defined as using inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability either directly (as prices) or indirectly (derived from prices). The carrying value of all financial instruments approximate their fair value.

ISSUE OF SHARES IN RESPECT OF FORFEITABLE SHARE PLAN  

 

Pick n Pay Stores Limited issued 6 925 000 shares in June 2014, in order to meet the share obligations under its new employee forfeitable share plan (FSP), which was approved by shareholders in February 2014. The FSP brings our approach to providing share incentives in line with international best practice, further aligning the interests of senior management with those of our shareholders.  

The shares were awarded to FSP participants during August 2014. The participants, although benefiting from full voting rights and full rights to any dividends declared, cannot dispose of their shares during a three-year employment period. In addition, the shares are subject to further performance conditions linked to the Pick n Pay Stores Limited Group’s compound annual growth in headline earnings per share. Should the employment condition or performance conditions not be met, the shares (or a portion thereof) are forfeited. Please refer to our 2015 integrated annual report for further information.  

The total employee cost in respect of the FSP is recognised on a straight-line basis over the employment period, commencing on the award date. The current period expense is R67.3 million.
