Net Asset Value Per Share Correction: 2022 Annual Financial Report
Shareholders are referred to the announcement of the Company's Preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2022 (released on 10 June 2022) and No Change Statement and Annual Report Publication (released on 27 June 2022).
Note 15 to the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2022 (the "2022 Financial Statements") - Net Asset Value metrics per share, should have been reported as follows:
· Share-based payment award shares of 1,181,961 should have been reported as 3,653,918 shares.
· The total Diluted number of shares in issue of 293,436,174 should have been reported as 295,908,131 shares.
Net assets attributable to equity shareholders remains unchanged.
The change in the total Diluted number of shares decreases all NAV per share metrics as at 31 March 2022 by 2p per share as follows:
31 March 2022
Diluted NAV per share - reported
Diluted NAV per share - amended
In accordance with IAS 33 - Earnings Per Share, the number of vested share options was included in the weighted average number of basic shares line rather than the share-based payment award shares line in Note 14 (Earnings per share) to the 2022 Financial Statements. However, in Note 15, to calculate Net Asset Value (NAV) per share, the number of vested share options should have been included within the share-based payment award shares line. Whilst earnings per share was correct and included all dilutive share options, the number of dilutive shares in Note 15 erroneously omitted the full amount of dilutive share options and instead linked directly to the share-based payment award shares line in Note 14.
In addition, the 2022 Annual Report quoted Total Accounting Return as 25.0%. This should have been reported as 23.6% as a result of the reduced NAV per share metric following the adjustment to the Diluted number of shares reported above.
