Interim Results

 

Atlantis Resources Limited, a vertically integrated turbine supplier and project owner in the tidal power industry, is pleased to announce its unaudited Interim Results for the six months to 30 June 2016.

Highlights

Financial highlights

 

·      Atlantis Resources Limited, in line with the requirements of International Accounting Standards 21, has amended its functional and presentation currency to GBP and today presents its first financial report in GBP.

·      The consolidated group cash position at 30 June 2016 was £13.2 million (31 December 2015; £12.3 million), including £7.7 million held at MeyGen (31 December 2015; £7.9 million).

·      Group total equity increased to £103.1 million over the six-month period (31 December 2015; £91.7 million).

·      In April 2016 Atlantis raised £6.5 million before expenses from new and existing shareholders to fund project development activities across the Atlantis portfolio and to secure opportunities for portfolio growth.

 

MeyGen Project

·      Significant progress made on the project in the reporting period, which has continued post period end.

·      All grid connection works completed and energisation to the local distribution network took place in June.  Post period end, all electrical equipment has been installed and commissioning completed in the onshore converter building.

·      Signed an Active Network Management agreement with a local 9.2MW wind farm in July to allow for better utilisation of the network, allowing capacity to be released for the wind farm onto the network during slack tides.

·      Fabrication of the Turbine Support Structures ("TSS") was completed at Nigg Energy Park and fabrication of the TSS ballast blocks was completed at JGC.

·      All detailed design works were completed for offshore installation tools and seafastenings and on the completion of the DEME transaction, Geosea was appointed to install all the turbine support structures, ballast blocks and one turbine.

·      During the reporting period the first AHH turbine nacelle was delivered to Scotland and assembly works commenced with completion post period end. Also subsequent to 30 June we received the second AHH turbine nacelle and components at Nigg for assembly. The Atlantis turbine underwent assembly and completed drive train testing at OREC during the period and has since been transported to Nigg for preparation for deployment.

·      In mid-September the Geosea jack up barge, the Neptune, arrived at Nigg and commenced preparations for equipment mobilisation.

·      In September 2016 we welcomed Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, to officially unveil the MeyGen Project, the world's largest tidal stream power project, at a ceremony held at the Nigg Energy Park in Scotland

·      The company looks forward to updating the market periodically throughout Q4 2016 on construction progress 

Corporate

·      In April 2016 the Group announced a partnership agreement with Equitix, a market leading developer, investor and fund manager of infrastructure assets. Under this agreement, Atlantis and Equitix will work together to advance Atlantis's portfolio of tidal power projects in Scotland, which represent a combined potential capacity of almost 650MW. Equitix intends to acquire at least 25% of each Atlantis project vehicle at financial close of that project.

·      In April 2016 Atlantis announced an agreement in principle to sell a minority stake in TPSL to DEME Concessions NV, a member of the DEME Group, ("DEME"). Under this agreement, DEME agreed to pay Atlantis £2 million in cash consideration for a 2% stake in TPSL and a right to contribute equity funding to the Sound of Islay project. The deal was completed in August 2016.

·      In April 2016 Atlantis announced that it had entered into a memorandum of understanding with SBS, a privately owned international marine, subsea and renewable energy developer to establish a joint venture to develop a 150MW tidal stream site in Indonesia.

·      In May 2016 Atlantis completed the acquisition of Scottish tidal project assets from ScottishPower Renewables (UK) Limited ("SPR") in exchange for a stake in the Company's wider development portfolio, TPSL, which is the holder of the Company's Scottish development portfolio, including an 83% shareholding in the 398MW MeyGen project. As a result of the transaction, TPSL has acquired development rights for an additional 110MW of projects in Scotland, including the seabed rights, grid access and consents for the 10MW Sound of Islay project.

 

Tim Cornelius, Chief Executive of Atlantis, commented:

"The first half of 2016 has been full of positive developments for Atlantis and it is extremely exciting to see the first phase of the world's flagship project, MeyGen, progressing towards first power in the second half of the year. Our team's efforts were recognised and rewarded when we welcomed the First Minister of Scotland and the Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy to Nigg Energy Park for the official unveiling of MeyGen in September.

"In addition, the first half of 2016 has seen us close ground breaking deals for Atlantis, strengthening our offerings across all of our key areas of business including project development, project financing, project delivery and operation. We welcome leading utility ScottishPower Renewables, leading infrastructure fund Equitix and world renowned offshore contractor DEME as key partners to Atlantis and we look forward to working with them to build out our extensive tidal power project portfolio across the United Kingdom."

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

February 2016 marked the second anniversary of Atlantis's transition to a public company, and we have continued in the pioneering spirit which saw us become the first listed tidal power company back in 2014. 

Our flagship MeyGen project is progressing well towards commissioning later this year, with construction completed at the onshore building and the fit out and installation of the electrical equipment now in its final stages.  We reached an important milestone in June with the energisation of our connection to the grid network in readiness for the export of tidally generated electricity.  This followed over 25km of distribution network upgrades and one of the longest 33kV underground cable runs in the country, ensuring that visual impact was minimised.  We were also delighted to announce that we had reached an agreement to allow a neighbouring onshore wind farm to access spare grid capacity when the full connection is not required by our project.  We believe this is the first arrangement of its kind, and is testament to the uniquely predictable nature of the tidal resource, allowing other generators to know exactly when grid capacity will be available. This further demonstrates the advantages of tidal power and the important role it will play in Britain's future energy mix

The first of the turbines from Andritz Hydro Hammerfest was delivered to the Nigg Energy Park for final assembly in early July, just after this reporting period.  The Atlantis turbine has now completed its rigorous onshore testing programme at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult's tidal turbine test facility in Blyth, Northumberland, and as I write this it is on its way up to Nigg for the fitting of the rotor and final pre-installation checks.  The four giant steel foundation structures are also at the Nigg Energy Park, from where they will be loaded onto the installation vessel for deployment.  They will be weighted down in position on the seabed by steel ballast blocks, to be delivered to the project site from nearby Scrabster Harbour.

Our wider portfolio of Scottish projects was strengthened in May with the completion of the acquisition of the Islay project and addition of ScottishPower Renewables (UK) Limited as a shareholder in our development vehicle, Tidal Power Scotland Limited (TPSL).  This followed the news in April that DEME Concessions NV had agreed to invest in TPSL, paying £2 million for 2% of the company and a route to investment in the Islay project and later phases of MeyGen.  Shortly prior to this, we had announced a new partnership agreement with Equitix, the multi-billion pound infrastructure investor, through which Equitix (via its managed funds) intends to acquire at least 25% of each Atlantis project vehicle at financial close of the relevant project.  Together, these new relationships put us in our strongest position yet to ensure successful development of our portfolio and the tidal industry.

As we look forward to the installation of the MeyGen turbines over the coming months and the production of first power from our ground-breaking project, I share the team's excitement for the future and am full of admiration for all that has been achieved, and gratitude to all those who have contributed in so many ways to bring us to this watershed moment in the company's history.  I look forward to working with our many stakeholders to take on the challenges and opportunities to establish tidal power as a long-term source of clean, renewable, and unobtrusive energy around the world.

 

SUMMARY OF RESULTS

 

The group's consolidated total assets increased significantly to £103.1 million at 30 June 2016 from £91.7 million at 31 December 2015, with the acquisition of the development rights for two tidal projects from ScottishPower Renewables valued by the Company at £6.6 million and capital expenditure on MeyGen Phase 1A.

Revenue for the six months to 30 June 2016 arising from third party consulting revenues was £0.2 million. Together with the capital raise from the market, grants and borrowings, total cash from financing activities for the period is £14.2 million. The unaudited consolidated cash position of the Atlantis group as at 30 June 2016 was £13.2 million.

Notes to the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

 

The condensed consolidated statement of financial position of Atlantis Resources Limited (the "Company") and its subsidiaries (the "Group") as at 30 June 2016, the condensed consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, the condensed consolidated statement of changes in equity and the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the Group for the six-month period then ended and certain explanatory notes (the "Consolidated Interim Financial Statements"), were approved by the Board of Directors for issue on 29 September 2016.

These notes form an integral part of the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.

The Consolidated Interim Financial Statements do not comprise statutory accounts of the Group within the meaning in the provisions of the Singapore Companies Act, Chapter 50. The Group's statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2015 were prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Singapore Companies Act and International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The Group's statutory accounts were approved by the Board of Directors on 26 May 2016 and have been reported by the Group's auditors.

 

1.  Domicile and activities

 

Atlantis Resources Limited is incorporated in the Republic of Singapore with its registered office at 80 Raffles Place, level 36, Singapore 048624.

The principal activity of the Group is that of pioneering the development of tidal current power as the most reliable, economic and secure form of renewable energy. The Company is an inventor, developer, owner, marketer and licensor of technology, intellectual property, trademarks, products and services, and an investment holding company

2.  Basis of preparation

 

1.     Statement of compliance

The Consolidated Interim Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34 - Interim Financial Reporting ("IAS 34").

Selected explanatory notes are included to explain events and transactions that are significant to an understanding of the changes in financial position and performance of the Group since the last annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2015.

The Consolidated Interim Financial Statements, which do not include the full disclosures of the type normally included in a complete set of financial statements, are to be read in conjunction with the last issued consolidated financial statements of the Group as at and for the year ended 31 December 2015

2.     Changes in functional and presentation currencies

Items included in the financial statements of each of the Group's entities are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates (the "functional currency").

In prior years, the Company regarded Singapore dollar ("SGD") as its functional currency.  However, as a result of the relocation of the Group's corporate headquarters from Singapore to Edinburgh, the management concluded that SGD can no longer be its functional currency.  As such, effective from 1 January 2016, the Company and two of its subsidiaries Atlantis Projects Pte Ltd and Atlantis Turbines Pte Ltd have changed their functional currencies from SGD to Great Britain Pounds ("GBP").  GBP has also been adopted as the presentational currency of the Group's consolidated interim financial statements.

The change in functional currency of the Company was applied prospectively from date of change in accordance with IAS 21 The Effect of Changes in Foreign Currency Exchange Rate.  On the date of the change of functional currency, all assets, liabilities, issued capital and other components of equity and profit and loss account items were translated into GBP at the exchange rate on that date.

The change in presentation currency of the Group has been applied retrospectively in accordance with IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors, and the comparative figures as at 31 December 2015 and for the period ended 30 June 2015 have also been restated to GBP accordingly.

The changes in functional and presentation currencies have no significant impact on the financial positions of the Group as at 31 December 2015 and 30 June 2016, or the results and cash flow of the Group for the periods ended 30 June 2015 and 2016

3.  Significant accounting policies

 

Except for the new and revised IASs effective for the financial year beginning 1 January 2016 adopted during the six-months period ended 30 June 2016, the accounting policies and method of computation used in the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements are consistent with those applied in the last issued consolidated financial statements of the Group for the year ended
31 December
2015.

The adoption of the new and revised IASs for the financial year beginning 1 January 2016 does not have a significant effect on the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.

New standards, amendments to standards and interpretations that are not effective for the six months ended 30 June 2016 have not been applied in preparing these Consolidated Interim Financial Statements. Except as otherwise indicated below, those new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations are not expected to have a significant effect on the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements. The Group does not plan to adopt these standards early.

·      IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

 

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers will replace IAS 18 Revenue, IAS 11 Construction Contracts and Related Interpretations. The standard establishes the principle for companies to recognise revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. The new standard will also result in enhanced disclosures about revenue, provide guidance for transactions that were not previously addressed (e.g. service revenue and contract modifications) and improved guidance for multi-element arrangements. The Group is currently assessing the impact of adopting this standard in financial year ending 31 December 2018.

 

·      IFRS 9 Financial Instruments

 

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments replaces most of the existing guidance in IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. It includes revised guidance on classification and measurement of financial instruments, a new expected credit loss model for calculating impairment on financial assets, and new general hedge accounting requirements.

 

·      IFRS 16 Leases

 

The new leases standard establishes the principles that entities would apply to report information to users of the financial statements about the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from a lease. The new standards will require a lessee to recognise assets and liabilities arising from a lease on its balance sheet.

 

 

Management is currently evaluating the impact of the implementation of these standards, in view of the complexities and the potential wide-ranging implications.



 

4.  Critical accounting judgements and key sources of estimation uncertainty

 

The preparation of Consolidated Interim Financial Statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

In preparing this set of Consolidated Interim Financial Statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015.

 

5.  Going concern basis

 

The Group meets its day to day working capital requirements through shareholders' funding, loans and grants. The directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. The Group therefore continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.

 

6.  Seasonality of operations

 

The Group's businesses were not affected significantly by seasonal or cyclical factors during the financial period.

During the period, a further £7,325,000 (2015: £19,951,000) of expenditure related to the development of the MeyGen tidal power project at the Inner Sound of the Pentland Firth off the coast of Scotland was capitalised and an aggregate of £451,000 (2015: £11,060,000) of grants were drawn down. Included in the capitalised development costs is an amount of £812,000 (2015: £696,000) that represents borrowing costs capitalised during the period.  The project is progressing according to plan and management estimates the recoverable amount of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets to be higher than the carrying amount such that no impairment was required.

 

10.         Intangible assets

 

On-going development costs related to the Group's tidal turbine development programme, in particular expenditure on the detailed design of and system integration for the Group's AR1500 turbine amounted to £175,000 (2015: £1,200,000) for the period.

On 6 May 2016, Atlantis completed the acquisition of Scottish tidal project assets from ScottishPower Renewables (UK) Limited ("SPR") in exchange for a stake in the group's wider development portfolio. Accordingly, as consideration for the acquisition, Tidal Power Scotland Limited ("TPSL"), the group's Scottish tidal project portfolio company, issued new ordinary shares to SPR resulting in a shareholding for SPR of 6% of the enlarged share capital of TPSL.  The value ascribed to the assets was £6.6 million. As a result of the transaction, which was agreed in December 2015, TPSL has acquired development rights for an additional 110MW of projects in Scotland, including the seabed rights, grid access and consents for the 10MW Sound of Islay project.

Fair value hierarchy

The table below analyses the fair value of financial instruments as disclosed, according to their levels in the fair value hierarchy. It does not include fair value information of instruments if the carrying amount is a reasonable approximation of fair value. The different levels have been defined as follows:

 

·  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 (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices); and

 

·  Level 3:

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

Estimating the fair value

 

The following summarises the significant methods and assumptions used in estimating the fair values of financial instruments of the Group.

Financial assets and liabilities

The notional amounts of financial assets and liabilities with a maturity of less than one year (including trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, secured bridging loan from non-controlling interest and trade and other payables) are assumed to approximate their fair values. All other financial assets and liabilities are discounted to determine their fair values.

18.  Segment information

 

(a)   Operating segments

 

As at 30 June 2016, the Group is principally engaged in development of the MeyGen tidal current power project and the supply of a tidal power turbine to it. The assets, liabilities and capital expenditure of the Group are mainly employed in activities supporting the development of the tidal current power project, MeyGen, being the main reportable segment within the Group.

Currently, the Group is principally engaged in the development of the tidal current power projects and the supply of tidal power turbines to these projects, which are its reportable segments in 2016.  These divisions are managed separately because they require different expertise and marketing strategies. 

The Board of Directors, who are the chief operating decision makers, review internal management reports of each division regularly, in relation to the capital expenditure, resources allocation and funding availability of the projects.

The other operation is the provision of corporate services which does not meet any of the quantitative thresholds for determining reportable segments in 2016 and 2015.

There are varying levels of integration between the power generation and turbine and engineering services divisions, including the delivery of a turbine from the turbine and engineering services to the power generation division.
