OVERVIEW
 
 
PSG is an investment holding company consisting of underlying investments that operate
 
across a diverse range of industries which include financial services, banking, private
 
equity, agriculture and education. PSG’s market capitalisation (net of treasury shares)
 
is approximately R36bn.
 
 
The year under review marked the first time that PSG achieved consolidated recurring
 
headline earnings in excess of R1bn. This follows strong results from all of its key
 
investments.
 
 
RESULTS
 
 
The two key benchmarks which PSG believes to measure performance by are Sum-of-the-Parts
 
(“SOTP”) value and recurring headline earnings per share.
 
 
SOTP
 
 
The calculation of the SOTP value is simple and requires limited subjectivity as 88% of
 
the value is calculated using JSE-listed share prices, while other investments are
 
included at market-related valuations. At 28 February 2015, the SOTP value per PSG share
 
was R163.28 (2014: R95.01). At 7 April 2015, the SOTP value was R195.02 per share.

Capitec is PSG’s largest investment and at 28 February 2015 comprised 41% (2014: 30%)
 
of the SOTP value’s total assets. Its higher contribution follows a 123% increase in
 
Capitec’s share price and an increase in PSG’s direct interest in Capitec as a result of
 
the below mentioned PSG/Thembeka scheme of arrangement during the past financial year.
 
Subsequent to year-end, Capitec’s share price increased by a further 33%. It continues
 
to be the major contributor to PSG’s recurring headline earnings.

Recurring headline earnings for the year ended 28 February 2015 increased by 32% to
 
593.6 cents per share, following commendable recurring headline earnings per share growth
 
from Capitec (26%), PSG Konsult (31%) and Zeder (15%). Although Curro reported a 38%
 
increase in recurring headline earnings per share for the year ended 31 December 2014, its
 
earnings contribution to the larger PSG group remains relatively small. This investment is,
 
however, expected to contribute significantly to PSG’s earnings in years to come.
 
PSG Private Equity reported a 10% decrease in recurring headline earnings per share
 
following challenging trading conditions at certain investments.
 
 
Headline earnings increased by 48% to 818.6 cents per share. The non-recurring headline
 
gains achieved during the year under review mainly comprised marked-to-market profits
 
achieved on listed shares held by PSG’s associated BEE investment holding company
 
(previously Thembeka).
 
 
Attributable earnings increased by 40% to 811.3 cents per share.
 
 
SIGNIFICANT TRANSACTIONS
 
 
The following significant transactions were undertaken during the past financial year:
 
 
• PSG raised R1.275bn in cash through the issue of ordinary shares, of which R920m was
 
by means of a book build and R355m through private placements.
 
• The PSG/Thembeka scheme of arrangement, amounting to R1.5bn, was concluded in terms
 
of which significant value was unlocked for Thembeka shareholders. Following the scheme
 
of arrangement, PSG holds a 49% interest in a new BEE investment holding company and
 
PSG’s interest in Capitec and Curro increased to 30.7% and 58.5%, respectively.
 
• Zeder increased its direct interest in Pioneer Foods to 27.3% through the issue of Zeder
 
shares in a transaction valued in excess of R2.5bn. This constituted the single largest
 
transaction in PSG’s history.
 
• Following the aforementioned Zeder share issue, PSG’s interest in Zeder diluted to 29.1%.
 
PSG subsequently increased its shareholding to 33.8% for a cash consideration of R447m.
 
• PSG invested R356m cash in Curro, mainly in support of its rights issue to fund further
 
expansion.
 
 
CAPITEC (30.7%)
 
 
Capitec continued to impress, not only by delivering yet another set of stellar financial
 
results, but also with the way in which it managed the challenges brought about by the demise
 
of African Bank, its largest competitor, as well as large strikes affecting many of its
 
clients during the past financial year.
 
 
While net transaction fee income from banking operations grew by 35%, Capitec’s lending
 
business experienced modest growth. Although the growth in net transaction fee income is
 
expected to slow temporarily in the next financial year, when new limits on card processing
 
fees between banks and merchants are applied, Capitec expects it to be offset by a continued
 
increase in its primary banking client numbers, as well as increased activity per client.
 
 
Unlike many other players in the unsecured lending sector, Capitec has conservative
 
provisioning and bad debt write-off policies. It provides 8% for loans that are up to date,
 
45% for loans behind by one instalment, 73% for loans behind by two instalments and 87% for
 
loans behind by three instalments. After 90 days in arrears, Capitec considers the loan bad
 
and writes it off in full. Provisions are almost twice the size of loans in arrears, as
 
demonstrated by the arrears coverage ratio of 196% as at 28 February 2015 (2014: 167%).
 
In addition, Capitec improved its bad debt recoveries by 39% to R602m during the year under
 
review.
 
 
Capitec has a prudent capital adequacy ratio of 36%. Its diversified funding base comprises
 
a healthy blend of wholesale fixed, retail fixed and call deposits. Although retail deposits
 
grew by R6.4bn during the past financial year, confidence in the wholesale funding market was
 
negatively influenced by market events and the ratings downgrade of the South African banking
 
sector. Capitec, however, has a high level of liquidity with R19.8bn in cash and short-term
 
funds, representing 37% of total assets. It is fully compliant with the Basel 3 liquidity
 
ratios.
 
 
PSG remains a loyal supporter of Capitec and looks forward to its continued success.

www.capitecbank.co.za.
 
 
PSG KONSULT (62.7%)
 
 
PSG Konsult recently announced its first set of financial results as a JSE (and NSX)-listed
 
company. Its commendable growth in recurring headline earnings per share resulted from a
 
strong performance by the PSG Wealth and PSG Asset Management divisions in particular.
 
 
PSG Konsult’s comprehensive results for the year ended 28 February 2015 are available at
 
www.psg.co.za.
 
 
CURRO (58.5%)
 
 
The education market offers significant investment opportunities and Curro continues to
 
capitalise on same in pursuit of its 2020 target of 80 schools with 80 000 learners. Curro
 
is currently in the process of a R740m capital raising by means of a rights offer to fund
 
its expansion plans. PSG has underwritten same.
 
 
The majority of Curro’s schools are either performing to expectation, or better. PSG remains
 
optimistic that Curro will achieve (and perhaps even exceed) its aforementioned target.
 
 
Curro’s comprehensive results for the year ended 31 December 2014 are available at
 
www.curro.co.za.
 
 
ZEDER (33.8%)
 
 
Following the conclusion of the Zeder/Agri Voedsel scheme of arrangement, Zeder now owns
 
an asset portfolio valued in excess of R14bn, with its 27.3% direct interest in
 
Pioneer Foods representing 73% of the total. Zeder’s SOTP value per share increased by 74.5%
 
to R9.18 during the past financial year. Pioneer Foods in particular reported strong earnings
 
growth for the year under review.
 
 
Zeder recently announced its firm intention to acquire the remaining 25% shares in Capespan,
 
held by minority shareholders other than management, by means of a scheme of arrangement.
 
The proposed transaction is valued in excess of R500m.
 
 
Zeder’s comprehensive results for the year ended 28 February 2015 are available at
 
www.zeder.co.za.
 
 
PSG PRIVATE EQUITY (100%)
 
 
PSG Private Equity serves as incubator to find the businesses of tomorrow. Management is
 
continuously refining the existing portfolio and actively searching for exciting new
 
investment opportunities. Given its nature, this portfolio is likely to yield volatile
 
earnings, while providing significant optionality.
 
 
BEE INVESTMENT HOLDING COMPANY (PREVIOUSLY THEMBEKA) (49%)
 
 
The new BEE investment holding company, emanating from the aforementioned PSG/Thembeka
 
scheme of arrangement during January 2015, is 51%-owned by the Stellenbosch BEE Education
 
Trust of which all beneficiaries are black individuals. PSG provided the new BEE investment
 
holding company with R800m in preference share funding to acquire select investments from
 
Thembeka, the most significant being interests of 6.6% in Curro, 4.4% in Pioneer Foods and
 
20% in Kaap Agri. These investments are all subject to BEE lock-in periods. The value
 
created will be used by the Stellenbosch BEE Education Trust to fund gifted but needy
 
black students’ education.
 
 
PROSPECTS
 
 
We believe PSG’s investment portfolio should continue yielding above average returns in
 
future.
 
 
DIVIDENDS
 
 
Ordinary shares
 
PSG’s policy remains to pay up to 100% of free cash flow as an ordinary dividend, of which
 
one third is payable as an interim and the balance as a final dividend at year-end. The
 
directors have approved and declared a final gross dividend of 145 cents (2014: 90 cents)
 
from income reserves, for a total dividend of 200 cents (2014: 133 cents) in respect of
 
the year ended 28 February 2015, representing a 50% increase.
 
 
The final dividend amount, net of South African dividend tax of 15%, is 123.25 cents per
 
share for those shareholders that are not exempt from dividend tax. The number of ordinary
 
shares in issue at the declaration date is 220 431 722, and the income tax number of the
 
company is 9950080714.

Notes to the condensed group financial statements
 
 
1. Basis of presentation and accounting policies
 
 
These condensed group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the recognition and
 
measurement principles of International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the
 
International Accounting Standards Board, including IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting; the SAICA
 
Financial Reporting Guides, as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee; the Financial Reporting
 
Pronouncements, as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council; the requirements of the South
 
African Companies Act, 71 of 2008, as amended; and the JSE Listings Requirements for preliminary
 
reports.
 
 
The accounting policies applied in the preparation of these condensed group financial statements are
 
consistent in all material respects with those used in the prior year’s annual financial statements,
 
apart from the early adoption of the amendments to IAS 16 Property, plant and equipment and IAS 41
 
Agriculture: Bearer plants, which were applied retrospectively. Previously, bearer plant biological
 
assets were measured at fair value less cost to sell with the adjustment being recognised in profit
 
or loss. Following the amendments, bearer plants are measured at cost, less accumulated depreciation
 
and impairment losses. Accordingly, bearer plants are measured similar to self-constructed items of
 
property, plant and equipment.
 
 
The group also adopted the various other revisions to IFRS which were effective for its financial
 
year ended 28 February 2015. These revisions have not resulted in material changes to the group’s
 
reported results and disclosures in these condensed group financial statements.
 
 
In addition to the business combinations set out below, the group’s results for the year under review
 
included, inter alia, those of Capespan Group Ltd (“Capespan”) and Klein Karoo Saad Bemarking
 
(Pty) Ltd for the full year, while same were only consolidated for 8 months and 4 months in the
 
prior year, respectively.
 
 
2. Preparation

6. Business combinations
 
 
6.1 Subsidiaries acquired
 
 
The group’s most significant business combinations entered into during the year under review included:
 
 
Mpongwe Milling (2009) Ltd (“Mpongwe Milling”)
 
 
During April 2014, the group, through Zeder, acquired the entire issued share capital of Mpongwe
 
Milling, a maize and wheat mill operating in the Copperbelt province of Zambia, for a Zambian kwatcha
 
denominated cash consideration equating to R307m. Mpongwe Milling complements the group’s existing
 
farming operations in Zambia and the acquisition provides the group with an opportunity to expand its
 
product offering across the value chain. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, synergies pertaining
 
to the procurement and marketing functions of the mill and farming operations.
 
 
Waterstone College (Pty) Ltd (“Waterstone”)
 
 
During June 2014, the group, through Curro, acquired the entire issued share capital of Waterstone,
 
a private school in Gauteng, South Africa, for a cash consideration of R130m (of which R30m is deferred)
 
and Curro shares to the value of R1m. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, the employee corps and
 
expected synergies.
 
 
SMC Brands SA (Pty) Ltd (“SMC Brands”)
 
 
During September 2014, the group, through PSG Private Equity’s subsidiary, CA Sales Holdings (Pty) Ltd
 
(“CA Sales”), increased its interest in SMC Brands (previously an associate) from 49% to 100% for a
 
cash consideration of R81m. SMC Brands is involved in the distribution of fast moving consumer goods
 
and complements the group’s already existing investments in same. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter
 
alia, the employee corps and expected synergies.
 
 
Pack ’n Stack Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (“Pack ’n Stack”)
 
 
During June 2014, the group, through PSG Private Equity’s subsidiary, CA Sales, increased its interest
 
in Pack ’n Stack (previously an associate) from 30% to 50.2% for a cash consideration of R52m.
 
Pack ’n Stack is involved in the distribution of fast moving consumer goods and complements the group’s
 
already existing investments in same. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, the employee corps and
 
expected synergies.
 
 
Ryla 21 (RF) (Pty) Ltd (“BEE investment holding company”)
 
 
During January 2015, the group acquired a 49% interest in BEE investment holding company as part of the
 
aforementioned Thembeka scheme of arrangement. Given the group’s shareholding and preference share
 
funding of R800m advanced to BEE investment holding company, the group is deemed to control and
 
therefore needs to consolidate this entity. The remaining 51% shareholding is held by the
 
Stellenbosch BEE Education Trust and all benefits derived from same will be utilised to fund gifted
 
but needy black students’ education.
 
 
The amounts of identifiable net assets acquired, as well as goodwill and non-controlling interests
 
recognised from aforementioned business combinations, can be summarised as follows:

Goodwill recognised from these business combinations can be attributed to the employee corps, expected
 
synergies, economies of scale and the businesses’ growth potential. Transaction costs relating to
 
aforementioned business combinations were insignificant and expensed in the income statement.
 
 
The aforementioned business combinations do not contain any contingent consideration or indemnification
 
asset arrangements.
 
 
Had the aforementioned entities been consolidated with effect from 1 March 2014 instead of their
 
respective acquisition dates, the consolidated income statement would have reflected additional revenue
 
from sale of goods and income of R1.4bn and profit after tax of R131m.
 
 
6.2 Consolidation of mutual fund
 
 
PSG Money Market Fund (“PSGMMF”)
 
 
During June 2014, the group further invested excess cash in the PSGMMF following the book build
 
capital raising set out in note 9 below. In light of the larger interest held by the group in PSGMMF
 
and PSG Konsult managing the fund, the group commenced consolidation of the PSGMMF. The PSGMMF invests
 
in various money market instruments with an average maturity of 90 days or less. Money market
 
instruments issued by ABSA, FirstRand, Nedbank, Standard Bank and the South African government
 
comprised approximately 80% of funds under management at the reporting date.
 
 
The amounts of identifiable net assets acquired and third-party liabilities arising on consolidation
 
of the mutual fund recognised can be summarised as follows:
 
 
Mutual

Rm
 
 
Identifiable net assets acquired 3 034

Cash consideration 1 489
 
 
Cash consideration paid (1 489)
 
Cash and cash equivalents acquired 314
 
Net cash outflow from consolidation of mutual fund (1 175)
 
 
The increase in other financial assets and liabilities as per the statement of financial position are
 
mainly as a result of the consolidation of aforementioned mutual fund.
 
 
7. Linked investment contracts
 
 
These represent PSG Life Ltd, a subsidiary of PSG Konsult, clients’ assets held under investment
 
contracts, which are linked to a corresponding liability. Accordingly, the value of policy benefits
 
payable is directly linked to the fair value of the supporting assets and therefore the group is not
 
exposed to the financial risks associated with these assets and liabilities. The impact on the income
 
statement from the returns on investment contract policy holder assets and liabilities, as well as the
 
investment income earned by the ordinary shareholders of the group, were as follows:

8. Trade and other receivables and payables
 
 
Included under trade and other receivables are PSG Online, a subsidiary of PSG Konsult, broker- and
 
clearing accounts of which R1.9bn (2014: R1.9bn) represents amounts owing by the JSE for trades
 
conducted during the last few days before year-end. These balances fluctuate on a daily basis depending
 
on the activity in the markets.
 
 
The control account for the settlement of these transactions is included under trade and other payables,
 
with the settlement to clients taking place within three days after the transaction date.
 
 
9. Corporate actions
 
 
Apart from the transactions set out in note 6, the group’s most significant corporate actions included
 
the following:
 
- The group raised R1.275bn in cash through the issue of ordinary shares, of which R920m was by means
 
of a book build and R355m through private placements.
 
- The group’s scheme of arrangement with Thembeka Capital (RF) Ltd (“Thembeka”), amounting to R1.5bn,
 
was concluded in terms of which significant value was unlocked for Thembeka shareholders. Following
 
the scheme of arrangement, the group holds a 49% interest in a new BEE investment holding company
 
and the group’s interest in Capitec and Curro increased to 30.7% and 58.5%, respectively.
 
- The group, through Zeder, increased its direct interest in Pioneer Food Group Ltd to 27.3% through
 
the issue of Zeder shares in a scheme of arrangement valued in excess of R2.5bn.
 
- Following the aforementioned Zeder share issue, the group’s interest in Zeder diluted to 29.1%.
 
The group subsequently increased its shareholding to 33.9% for a cash consideration of R447m.
 
- The group invested R356m cash in Curro, mainly in support of its rights issue to fund further
 
expansion.
 
 
The increase in investment in ordinary shares of associates and joint ventures as per the statement of
 
financial position are mainly as a result of the group’s aforementioned increased interest in Pioneer
 
Food Group Ltd and the Thembeka scheme of arrangement.
 
 
10. Non-current assets held for sale
 
 
The non-current assets and liabilities held for sale at the reporting date comprised mainly PSG Private
 
Equity’s interest in GRW Holdings (Pty) Ltd (an associate), and Zeder’s interest, through Capespan, in
 
Addo Cold Storage (Pty) Ltd (a subsidiary). The prior year non-current assets held for sale comprised
 
mainly JSE-listed Capevin Holdings Ltd shares, which was subsequently disposed of by Zeder.
 
 
11. Financial instruments
 
 
11.1 Financial risk factors
 
 
The group’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including currency risk,
 
fair value interest rate risk, and price risk), credit risk and liquidity risk.
 
 
These condensed group financial statements do not include all financial risk management information and
 
disclosures set out in the annual financial statements, and therefore they should be read in conjunction
 
with the group’s annual financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2015. Risk management
 
continues to be carried out by each major entity within the group under policies approved by the
 
respective boards of directors.
 
 
11.2 Fair value estimation
 
 
The group, through PSG Life Ltd, issues linked investment contracts where the value of the policy
 
benefits (i.e. liability) is directly linked to the fair value of the supporting assets, and as such
 
does not expose the group to the market risk relating to fair value movements.
 
 
The information below analyses financial assets and liabilities, which are carried at fair value, by
 
level of hierarchy as required by IFRS 13. The different levels in the hierarchy are defined below:
 
 
Level 1
 
The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets is based on quoted market prices at the
 
reporting date. A market is regarded as active if quoted prices are readily and regularly available from
 
an exchange, dealer, broker, industry group, pricing service, or regulatory agency, and those prices
 
represent actual and regularly occurring market transactions on an arm’s length basis. The quoted market
 
price used for financial assets held by the group is the current bid price.
 
 
Level 2
 
Financial instruments that trade in markets that are not considered to be active but are valued (using
 
valuation techniques) based on quoted market prices, dealer quotations or alternative pricing sources
 
supported by observable inputs are classified within level 2. These include over-the-counter traded
 
derivatives. As level 2 investments include positions that are not traded in active markets and/or are
 
subject to transfer restrictions, valuations may be adjusted to reflect illiquidity and/or
 
non-transferability, which are generally based on available market information. If all significant
 
inputs in determining an instrument’s fair value are observable, the instrument is included in level 2.
 
 
Level 3
 
If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is
 
included in level 3. Investments classified within level 3 have significant unobservable inputs, as they
 
trade infrequently.
 
 
The carrying value of financial assets and liabilities carried at amortised cost approximates their
 
fair value, while those measured at fair value in the statement of financial position can be summarised
 
as follows:

Unit-linked investments and debt securities represent the largest portion of the level 3 financial
 
assets and relate to units and debentures held in hedge funds that are priced monthly. The prices
 
are obtained from the asset managers of the particular hedge funds. These are held to match investment
 
contract liabilities, and as such any change in measurement would result in a similar adjustment to
 
investment contract liabilities.
 
 
Derivative financial assets, equity securities, debt securities and unit-linked investments are all
 
included in “other financial assets” in the statement of financial position, while derivative financial
 
liabilities and third party liabilities arising on consolidation of mutual funds are included in “other
 
financial liabilities”.
 
 
There have been no significant transfers between level 1, 2 or 3 during the year under review, nor were
 
there any significant changes to the valuation techniques and inputs used to determine fair values.
 
Valuation techniques and main inputs used to determine fair value for financial instruments classified
 
as level 2 can be summarised as follows:
 
 
Instrument Valuation technique Main inputs
 
 
Derivative financial assets Exit price on recognised Not applicable
 
and liabilities over-the-counter platforms
 
Debt securities Valuation model that uses the market Bond interest rate

12. Capital commitments and contingencies
 
 
For the 2015 calendar year, Curro plans to invest approximately R600m in the expansion of existing
 
campuses, develop three new Curro schools, develop a new site for the Meridian Pretoria school and
 
expand the Cosmo City campus, develop three new Curro Castles in the Johannesburg Area, invest R250m
 
in land banking of various key sites and investigate potential acquisitions. As mentioned above,
 
Curro is currently in the process of a R740m capital raising by means of a rights offer to fund
 
its expansion plans. PSG has underwritten same.
 
 
Capespan, being a subsidiary of Zeder, has approved investments of more than R500m in property, plant
 
and equipment, which included the subsequent to reporting date acquisition of the following operations:
 
- Novo Packhouse’s coldstores, packhouse and equipment for a cash consideration of R100m; and
 
- Theewaterskloof’s business operations (being a pome fruit farm), moveable equipment, farm land and
 
biological assets for a cash consideration of R140m.
 
 
Subsequent to the reporting date, Zeder announced its firm intention to acquire the remaining 25%
 
shareholding in Capespan, held by minority shareholders other than management, by means of a scheme of
 
arrangement. In terms of the scheme of arrangement, Zeder will issue 85 ordinary shares for every 100
 
Capespan ordinary shares acquired.
 
 
13. Restatement of prior year figures
 
 
The prior year figures of Capespan, a subsidiary of the group through Zeder, have been restated to
 
account for the following:
 
 
Restatement 1: Agriculture: Bearer plants
 
Management adopted the retrospective amendments to IAS 16 Property, plant and equipment and IAS 41
 
Agriculture: Bearer plants on the basis set out in note 1 above.
 
 
Restatement 2: Accounting for the sales and cost of sales of product sold
 
Management reassessed an existing management agreement which was accounted for as management fee
 
income, but concluded it to rather fall within IFRIC 4 Determining whether an Arrangement contains a
 
Lease and therefore applied IAS 17 Leases retrospectively. This resulted in Capespan now accounting
 
for this agreement and the related farming operations as principal.
 
 
Restatement 3: Reclassification of production costs
 
Certain production costs were reallocated from other expenses to cost of sales to correctly disclose
 
the nature thereof. This restatement had no impact on previously reported profit.
 
 
The effect of these restatements on the group’s results are as follows:

Capespan, to which all of the aforementioned restatements relate, only became a subsidiary of the group
 
during the prior year and therefore no amendments were required to the amounts reported in respect of
 
earlier years.
 
 
14. Segment report
 
 
The group’s classification into seven reportable segments, namely: Capitec, Curro, PSG Konsult, Zeder,
 
PSG Private Equity, BEE investment holding company (previously Thembeka), and PSG Corporate, remains
 
unchanged. These segments represent the major investments of the group. The services offered by
 
PSG Konsult consist of financial advice, stock broking, fund management and insurance, while Curro
 
offers private education services. The other segments offer financing, banking, investing and advisory
 
services. All segments operate predominantly in the Republic of South Africa. However, the group has
 
exposure to offshore operations through Zeder’s investments in Capespan, Zaad Holdings Ltd and
 
Agrivision Africa, and PSG Private Equity’s investment in CA Sales.
 
 
Intersegment income represents income derived from other segments within the group which is recorded at
 
the fair value of the consideration received or receivable for services rendered in the ordinary course
 
of the group’s activities. Intersegment income mainly comprises intergroup management fees charged in
 
terms of the respective management agreements.
 
 
Headline earnings comprise recurring and non-recurring headline earnings. Recurring headline earnings
 
are calculated on a proportional basis, and include the proportional headline earnings of underlying
 
investments, excluding marked-to-market adjustments and one-off items. The result is that investments
 
in which the group holds less than 20% and which are generally not equity accountable in terms of
 
accounting standards, are equity accounted for the purpose of calculating the consolidated recurring
 
headline earnings. Non-recurring headline earnings include one-off gains and losses and marked-to-market
 
fluctuations, as well as the resulting taxation charge on these items. SOTP is a key valuation tool
 
used to measure PSG’s performance. In determining SOTP, listed assets and liabilities are valued using
 
quoted market prices, whereas unlisted assets and liabilities are valued using appropriate valuation
 
methods.
 
 
These values will not necessarily correspond with the values per the statement of financial position
 
since the latter are measured using the relevant accounting standards which include historical cost and
 
the equity method of accounting.
