Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Officer, Aslan Saranga said:

"On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to report resilient results for the year in the face of unprecedented trading conditions, which saw operational constraints such as curfews and the suspension of dine-in service resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.  We were able to increase our system sales by 14.6% on the back of our strong Turkish performance.  Despite 27 store closures in Turkey and Russia due to Covid-19, we were also able to increase our store portfolio by six during 2020, reaching a total of 771 stores across our four countries of operation.

"The Turkish business performed very strongly from a top line point of view, especially with record-breaking like-for-like growth rates in the second half of the year.  New product introductions, such as the extension of the oven-baked sandwich line, new chicken offerings and Döner (chawarma) suite products along with celebrity-endorsed advertising campaigns, and brand-building Euroleague and Eurocup sponsorships contributed significantly to the increase in system sales.  Furthermore, as mentioned in our latest trading update, there has also been a Covid-19 inspired shift to home delivery across all consumer sectors.  The strong trading in Turkey is continuing in 2021 with like-for-like growth rate of 49.0% in January/February.

"After a slow start to 2020 and further depressed sales performance due to 72 days' curfew in Moscow during the second quarter, the Russian business saw an improving top line performance in the second half of the year.  While we recorded a like-for-like growth rate of -12.6% for 2020, we are encouraged by the steady improvement to -1.9% like-for-like growth rate during the last two months of 2020 which gives us momentum going into 2021, as evidenced by the 6.4% like-for-like growth rate in January/February.  In line with the Russian Plan outlined in our 2019 results announcement, we began a TV advertising campaign in October and introduced our "New and Improved" Pizza with a new dough formulation and new meat toppings, based on the feedback from our market research.  We also introduced two new pizzas and garlic bread in October.  These initiatives have been well received and, alongside our Moscow-targeted TV advertising campaigns, have contributed to the improvement in the like-for-like growth rates.

"2020 also saw us surpass the 75% milestone for Group online delivery system sales as a percentage of total delivery system sales.  The steady increase of this mix over the last few years is important for the Group as online customers have a higher ordering frequency, customers can be analysed by our CRM systems to come up with different offerings for different segments, and we can provide more targeted advertising to them.

"I would like to welcome Mr. Daniel Rubinowski as our newly appointed CEO of Russian Operations, who brings with him a wealth of QSR experience in the Russian and CIS markets.  I would also like to thank our outgoing CEO of Russian Operations, Mr. Mustafa Özgül, for his dedicated service to the company over the years and wish him success in his future endeavours.

"I would also like to thank our outgoing shareholder, Turkish Private Equity Fund II L.P., for its continuous contribution and support to the business since 2010, whilst welcoming Jubilant Foodworks Limited as a new and substantial shareholder.

"2021 has seen the start of the vaccination programmes in Turkey and Russia, and whilst this brings some relief, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to create uncertainty in our markets. However, the resilience shown by the Group in 2020 and the trading momentum carried over to the first two months of 2021 give the Board confidence regarding our market positioning and the prospects for our business in the long term."

Notes

(1) System sales are sales generated by the Group's corporate and franchised stores to external customers and do not represent revenue of the Group.

 (2) Like-for-like growth is a comparison of sales between two periods that compares system sales of existing system stores. The Group's system stores that are included in like-for-like system sales comparisons are those that have operated for at least 52 weeks preceding the beginning of the first month of the period used in the like-for-like comparisons for a certain reporting period, assuming the relevant system store has not subsequently closed or been "split" (which involves the Group opening an additional store within the same map of an existing store or in an overlapping area).

(3) EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and non-recurring and non-trade income/expenses are not defined by IFRS. These items are determined by the principles defined by the Group management and comprise income/expenses which are assumed by the Group management to not be part of the normal course of business and are non-trading items. These items which are not defined by IFRS are disclosed by the Group management separately for a better understanding and measurement of the sustainable performance of the Group.  Please refer to Note 3 in the Consolidated Financial statements for a reconciliation of these items with IFRS.

(4) Adjusted net income is not defined by IFRS.  Adjusted net income excludes income and expenses which are not part of the normal course of business and are non-recurring items. Management uses this measurement basis to focus on core trading activities of the business segments and to assist it in evaluating underlying business performance.  Please refer to Note 3 in the Consolidated Financial statements for a reconciliation of this item with IFRS.

(5) Net debt and adjusted net debt are not defined by IFRS. Adjusted net debt includes cash deposits used as a loan guarantee and cash paid, but not collected during the non-working day at the year end. Management uses these numbers to focus on net debt including deposits not otherwise considered cash and cash equivalents under IFRS.  Please refer to Note 16 in the Consolidated Financial statements for a reconciliation of these items with IFRS.

(6) Delivery system sales are system sales of the Group generated through the Group's delivery distribution channel.

(7) Online system sales are system sales of the Group generated through its online ordering channel.

(8) Group like-for-like growth is a weighted average of the country like-for-like growths based on store numbers as described in Note (2) above.

Although 27 stores were closed due to the pandemic, DP Eurasia was able to finish the year with six net stores added compared to 2019.  The Group increased its system sales by 14.6% year-on-year, driven by the strong like-for-like sales growth in Turkey.

The Turkish operations' system sales, representing 68% of Group system sales, increased by 26.4%.  The start to the year was strong; however, due to the effects of Covid-19, the second quarter's like-for-like growth lagged the first quarter.  In the second half of the year, the Turkish business recorded very strong like-for-like growth rates, partially aided by the tail effect of the reduction of the VAT rate from 8% to 1%.  Despite periodical operational constraints due to curfews that hurt the take-away and eat-in channels, the Group achieved a robust 26.0% like-for-like growth in Turkey, mainly attributable to the strategies that were undertaken in sales and marketing.  The new product launches, continued celebrity-endorsed marketing and increased delivery focus and demand due to the pandemic were key to the strong like-for-like growth rates.  As a result of the pandemic, a total of 14 stores were closed in Turkey; however, on the back of strong like-for-like growth in Turkey in the second half of the year and franchisee demand, a total of 33 stores were opened in the Turkish segmentActive management and optimisation of the Turkish estate, which is ordinary course of business for the Group, continued in 2020.  14 stores were transferred from corporate to franchisee ownership, and one transfer in the opposite direction.

The Russian operations' system sales, representing 30% of Group system sales, decreased by 6.3% (15.3% based on RUB).  The Russian operations had like-for-like sales growth of -12.6% for the year, with growth affected by the increased competition, especially in terms of aggregators and fast-food players that are supported by them, as well as the 72-day strict Moscow curfew due to Covid-19 in the second quarter, where like-for-like growth recorded rates of -30-35% in some weeks.  The Group embarked on the execution of its Russia plan at the beginning of 2020 and saw a recovery in its like-for-like growth rates to -1.9% in November/December.  The Group had 13 store closures due to Covid-19 in Russia.  Refranchising activity was low, with one store transferred from corporate to franchisee ownership, and two store transfers in the opposite direction.  Russian franchised stores amounted to 75, representing 39% of the Russian store portfolio.

The Group's like-for-like growth continues to be driven mainly by the performance of its online ordering platforms.  Online delivery system sales as a share of delivery system sales reached 75.3% for the year, which represents a 5.4 percentage point increase on a year-on-year basis.

In Turkey, online system sales like-for-like growth for the period was 54.4%, as a result of which online delivery system sales as a share of delivery system sales reached 70.2% for the period, a 6.0 percentage point increase from a year ago, aided also by an increase in volumes through the aggregator.

In Russia, online system sales like-for-like growth for the period was 13.1%, as a result of which online delivery system sales as a share of delivery system sales reached 89.7% for the period, a 7.7 percentage point increase from a year ago, which was also boosted by the Group's inclusion in an aggregator platform in May after a six-month trial period.

Online system sales continued to outpace the overall system sales growth at 40.3% for the Group.  Turkish online system sales grew by 55.2%, while Russian online system sales grew by 20.3% (8.8% based on RUB).

Revenue

Group revenue grew by 4.0% to TRY 1,019.2 million.  Turkish segment revenue grew by 20.4% to TRY 673.6 million, while Russian segment revenue decreased by 17.9% to TRY 345.6 million.

Adjusted EBITDA

The Group's adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) contracted by 44.1% to TRY 69.6 million.  Adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) for the Turkish segment, which includes the Azerbaijani and Georgian businesses, was TRY 118.6 million, a year-on-year increase of 9.1%, and adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) for the Russian segment was TRY -37.3 million, a decrease from the TRY 24.5 million figure of a year ago.  The Group's adjusted EBITDA figure includes TRY 11.9 million of Covid‐19 related costs, of which TRY 9.1 million are considered to be of non‐recurring nature.  The breakdown of these costs between Turkey and Russia was TRY 6.6 million and TRY 5.3 million, respectively.  Additionally, costs relating to our Dutch corporate expenses reduced adjusted EBITDA by TRY 11.7 million in 2020.  The comparable adverse effect of this item was TRY 8.7 million in 2019, with the increase in 2020 primarily due to the devaluation of the TRY against the EUR and the GBP.

In 2020, the Group's adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) margin as a percentage of system sales was 4.4% compared to 9.1% in 2019.  The main reasons for the decrease were the contraction in the Russian business due to the operational constraints levied for Covid-19, increased competition, especially due to the aggregators, and the Covid-19 related costs.

Adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) margin as a percentage of system sales for the Turkish segment (including Azerbaijan and Georgia) recorded a decrease to 10.8% from 12.5%, mainly due to Covid-19 related costs and an increase in marketing.

The Russian segment margin decreased to -7.9% from 4.9%.  The main reason for the decrease is the system sales contraction caused by the pandemic and increased competition from the aggregators.  Management has continued with the execution of the plan announced at last year's results announcement and has recorded an improvement on the 2020 adjusted EBITDA margin compared to the H1'2020 adjusted EBITDA margin.  The Board continues to remain confident in the medium and long-term potential of the Russian market for DP Eurasia.

Adjusted Net Income

For the year ended 31 December 2020, adjusted net loss (excluding IFRS 16) was TRY 87.1 million.  The main reasons for the deterioration in adjusted net income were the contraction in EBITDA as explained previously and the switch to a foreign exchange loss in 2020 from a foreign exchange gain in 2019.  The Group does not have any hard currency denominated bank borrowings; however, the Group recorded a foreign exchange loss of TRY 16.5 million due to the intragroup loans made between different jurisdictions versus a foreign exchange gain of TRY 6.8 million in the previous year.

Capital expenditure and Cash conversion

The Group invested TRY 49.0 million of capital expenditure in 2020.  The Turkish segment capital expenditure was TRY 32.5 million and the Russian segment capital expenditures amounted to TRY 16.4 million (RUB 171 million).

Cash conversion, defined as (adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16) - capital expenditure)/adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16)) for the period was 29.7% (2019: 14.2%) for the Group as a result of prudent capital expenditure management and 72.6% (2019: 65.8%) for the Turkish segment as a result of its strong performance.  The Russian segment had negative cash conversion due to its negative adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted net debt and Leverage

Excluding the impact of IFRS 16, the Group's adjusted net debt at 31 December 2020 was TRY 242.0 million, representing an increase of 2.0% from 30 June 2020 and an increase of 6.8% from 31 December 2019.  The Group's bank borrowings continue to be denominated in its operational currencies of TRY and RUB.  As at 31 December 2020, 73% of the Group's bank borrowings were denominated in TRY, compared to 52% as at 31 December 2019, while the remainder is denominated in RUB.

The Group continues its prudent and conservative approach to debt and its absolute net debt position has stayed materially constant as compared to a year ago.  However, as a result of the reduced EBITDA performance during the year ended 31 December 2020, its leverage ratio (defined as adjusted net debt (excluding IFRS 16)/adjusted EBITDA (excluding IFRS 16)) was 3.5x as at 31 December 2020 (2019: 1.8x).

The Group's Russian loan facility carries financial covenants, which the Group was unable to meet in 2020 and for which the Group was granted waivers.  The Group was also granted waivers for the first two quarters of 2021.  In July 2020, DP Eurasia made a prepayment of RUB 0.6 billion under its Russian loan, reducing the principal outstanding to RUB 1.0 billion, of which RUB 0.2 billion is supported by a cash collateral deposit.  The Group's strong liquidity position enables it to repay its bank borrowings in Russia if required, and still maintain a strong liquidity position.  As at 31 December 2020, DP Eurasia had TRY 128 million of cash at hand (including the TRY 19 million deposit amount in Sberbank) and additional available bank lines of TRY 142 million.

Shareholder Update

On 19 February 2021, Jubilant Foodworks Limited ("JFL"), the largest foodservice company in India, and Fides Food Systems Coöperatief U.A. announced that Jubilant Foodworks Limited and its wholly owned subsidiary, Jubilant Foodworks Netherlands B.V., have entered into a purchase agreement with Turkish Private Equity Fund II L.P. to fully acquire Fides Food Systems Coöperatief U.A., which holds 32.81% of the ordinary share capital of DP Eurasia, for a price of approximately GBP 24.80 million.  The transaction was closed on 9 March 2021.

Jubilant Foodworks Limited is India's largest foodservice company.  Its Domino's Pizza franchise extends across a network of 1,314 restaurants in 285 cities (as of 31 December 2020).  JFL has the exclusive rights to develop and operate Domino's Pizza brand in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal.  At present, it operates in India, and through its subsidiary companies in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.  JFL also has the exclusive rights to develop and operate Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in India and has 27 restaurants in operation across eight cities in India (as of 31 December 2020).  JFL also operates its owned restaurant brands: 'Hong's Kitchen', which serves two cities with seven restaurants in India (as of 31 December 2020) and Ekdum! with three restaurants.  JFL is also offering ready-to-cook range of sauces, gravies and pastes under the brand 'ChefBoss'.

The takeover regimes of both the UK and the Netherlands no longer apply to DPEU, including in relation to the recent share acquisition and any further stake-building by a controlling shareholder

As a result of Brexit, companies which formerly had their registered office in one EEA member state and their shares admitted to trading on a regulated market in the UK have now fallen outside the "shared jurisdiction" regime. The shared jurisdiction regime provided that, for such companies, certain rules from the UK Takeover Code and certain rules of the state in which the company is registered apply to takeover activity. Following the end of the transition period at midnight on 31 December 2020, this regime no longer applies such that neither the UK Takeover Code regime nor the home state regime applies since the Dutch mandatory public offer rules only apply to Dutch companies that are listed on a regulated market in the EU/EEA and the London Stock Exchange is no longer an EU/EEA regulated market.

New Appointment

Mr. Daniel Rubinowski has been appointed as the CEO of Russian Operations and is expected to start his role in April.  Prior to this, he was Marketing Director of KFC for Russia & CIS for over four years at Yum!.  Previously, he spent more than ten years in Beiersdorf AG working in its headquarters in Germany and affiliates in Poland and Russia.  Mr. Rubinowski has a degree in Economics from Poznan University of Economics.

Consideration of additional listing

As previously announced, the Board is considering an additional listing on a major stock exchange to complement its current listing on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.  Upon its initial review, the Board has taken the decision to further investigate the dual listing of DP Eurasia at the Borsa Istanbul. This process remains ongoing and the Company will provide a further update in due course.

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION OF CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

2.1 Principles of consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the parent company, DP Eurasia N.V. and its subsidiaries for the year ended at 31 December 2020. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Company (the "acquisition date").

 

Basis of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Group on the basis set out in sections below. The financial results of the subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Group or deconsolidated from the date that control ceases.

 

Subsidiaries are all companies over which the Group has control. The Group controls an entity when the Group is exposed to, or has rights to, variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power to direct the activities of the entity.

The subsidiaries fully consolidated, the proportion of ownership interest and the effective interest of the Group in these subsidiaries as of 31 December 2020 are disclosed in Note 1.

 

The result of operations of subsidiaries acquired or sold during the year are included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income from the acquisition date or until the date of sale. 

 

The statements of financial position and statements of comprehensive income of the subsidiaries are consolidated on a line-by-line basis and the carrying value of the investment held by the Company and its subsidiaries are eliminated against the related shareholders' equity. Intercompany transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions between Group companies are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the transferred asset. Accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

 

Consolidation of foreign subsidiaries

Financial statements of subsidiaries operating in foreign countries are prepared in the currency of the primary economic environment in which they operate. Assets and liabilities in financial statements prepared according to the Group's accounting policies are translated into the Group's presentation currency, Turkish Liras, from the foreign exchange rate at the statement of financial position date whereas income and expenses are translated into TRY at the average foreign exchange rate. Exchange differences arising from the translation are included in the "currency translation differences" under shareholders' equity.

 

The foreign currency exchange rates used in the translation of the foreign operations within the scope of consolidation are as follows:

2.2 Functional and presentation currency

 

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").

 

The consolidated financial statements are presented in TRY, which is the Group's presentation currency.

NOTE 3 - SEGMENT REPORTING

 

The business operations of the Group are organised and managed with respect to geographical positions of its operations. The information regarding the business activities of the Group as of 31 December 2020 and 2019 comprise the performance and the management of its Turkish and Russian operations and head office.

 

The Group has two business segments, determined by management according to the information used for the evaluation of performance and the allocation of resources, the Turkish and Russian operations. Other operations are composed of corporate expenses of Dutch companies. These segments are managed separately because they are affected by economic conditions and geographical positions in terms of risks and returns.

1.   EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and non-recurring and non-trade income/expenses are not defined by IFRS. These items are determined by the principles defined by Group management and comprise income/expenses which are assumed by Group management to not be part of the normal course of business and are non-trading items. These items, which are not defined by IFRS, are disclosed by Group management separately for a better understanding and measurement of the sustainable performance of the Group.

2.   The reason for the significant increase in one-off non-trading costs is mainly related to impairment expenses of the tangible and intangible assets.

The Group applied IFRS 9 simplified approach to measuring expected credit losses, which uses a lifetime expected loss allowance for all trade, lease and other receivables based on historical losses. The Group analysed the impact of IFRS 9 and the historical losses that were incurred in 2020 also impacted the expected credit losses going forward, resulting in an additional TRY 955 recorded as provision for doubtful receivables (31 December 2019: TRY 606). The Group also assessed whether the historic pattern would change materially in the future. The expected credit loss applied per aging bucket is shown as below:

NOTE 17 - TAX ASSETS, LIABILITIES AND TAX EXPENSE

 

Corporate tax

The Group is subject to taxation in accordance with the tax regulations and the legislation effective in the countries in which the Group companies operate. Therefore, provision for taxes, as reflected in the consolidated financial statements, has been calculated on a separate-entity basis.

 

The Netherlands

Dutch tax legislation does not permit a Dutch parent company and its foreign subsidiaries to file a consolidated Dutch tax return. Dutch resident companies are taxed on their worldwide income for corporate income tax purposes at a statutory rate of 25%. No further taxes are payable on this profit unless the profit is distributed.

 

Services incurred by Dutch parent companies may generally be divided into two kinds of services being group services for which costs are incurred for the economic and commercial benefit of subsidiaries and shareholder services for which costs are incurred for activities provided in the capacity of the shareholder. All costs incurred by the Company are shareholder services (costs incurred for activities provided in the capacity of shareholder) and not group services (costs incurred for the economic or commercial benefit of subsidiaries).

 

Since shareholder services are not for the benefit of any one specific subsidiary, it is not required to re-charge these fees or costs to a subsidiary or to subsidiaries.

If certain conditions are met, income derived from foreign subsidiaries is tax exempted in the Netherlands under the rules of the Dutch participation exemption. However, certain costs such as acquisition costs are not deductible for Dutch corporate income tax purposes. Furthermore, in some cases the interest payable on loans to affiliated companies is non-deductible.

 

When income derived by a Dutch company is subject to taxation in the Netherlands as well as in other countries, generally avoidance of double taxation can be obtained under the extensive Dutch tax treaty network or under Dutch domestic law. 

 

Dividend distributions are subject to 15% Dutch withholding tax. However, under the Netherlands' extensive tax treaty network, this rate can, in many cases, be significantly reduced if certain conditions are met.

 



 

Turkey

The Corporate Tax Law was amended by Law No, 5520, dated 13 June 2006. Most of the articles of the new Corporate Tax Law (No 5520) came into force on 1 January 2006. Corporate tax is payable at a rate of 22% (31 December 2019: 22%) on the total income of the Group after adjusting for certain disallowable expenses, exempt income and investment and other allowances (e.g. research and development allowance). No further tax is payable unless the profit is distributed (except for withholding tax at the rate of 19.8%, calculated on an exemption amount if an investment allowance is granted in the scope of Income Tax Law Temporary Article 61).

 

With the Law on Amendments to Certain Laws and Tax Laws and Decrees by the Courts dated 28 November 2017, the tax rate has been changed to 22% for corporate tax and advance tax of corporate earnings for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 taxation periods.

 

Companies are required to pay advance corporate tax quarterly at the rate of 22% on their corporate income in Turkey. Advance tax is payable by the 17th of the second month following each calendar quarter end. Advance tax paid by corporations is credited against the annual corporate tax liability. If, despite offsetting, there remains a paid advance tax amount, it may be refunded or offset against other liabilities to the government.

 

Russia

Income taxes have been provided for in the consolidated financial statements in accordance with legislation enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period. The income tax charge comprises current tax and deferred tax and is recognised in profit or loss for the year, except if it is recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity because it relates to transactions that are also recognised, in the same or a different period, in other comprehensive income or directly in equity.

 

Current tax is the amount expected to be paid to, or recovered from, the taxation authorities in respect of taxable profits or losses for the current and prior periods. Taxable profits or losses are based on estimates if financial statements are authorised prior to filing relevant tax returns. Taxes other than on income are recorded within operating expenses as established in Chapter 25 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation. Corporate tax is payable at a rate of 20% (31 December 2019: 20%) as identified in Article 247 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation Special rules may apply in cases where a different from 20% tax rate is used.

 

Deferred income tax is provided using the balance sheet liability method for tax loss carry forwards and temporary differences arising between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes. In accordance with the initial recognition exemption, deferred taxes are not recorded for temporary differences on initial recognition of an asset or a liability in a transaction other than a business combination if the transaction, when initially recorded, affects neither accounting nor taxable profit. Deferred tax balances are measured at tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the end of the reporting period, which are expected to apply to the period when the temporary differences will reverse, or the tax loss carry forwards will be utilised.

Deferred income tax assets recognition of Fidesrus

Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the deferred tax asset to be utilised. Various factors are considered to assess the probability of the future utilisation of deferred tax assets, including past operating results, operational plan, expiration of tax losses carried forward, and tax planning strategies. If actual results differ from these estimates or if these estimates must be adjusted in future periods, the financial position, results of operations and cash flows may be negatively affected. In the event that the assessment of future utilisation of deferred tax assets must be reduced, this reduction will be recognised in the income statement.

 

Based on the change in the tax code in the Russian Federation after 31 December 2015, previously applied limitation on carry forward tax losses for a ten-year period has been abolished and any losses incurred since 2007 will be carried forward until fully recognised.
