2. CHANGE IN INVESTMENT ENTITY STATUS AND EARNINGS
International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) require that an entity reassess
whether it is an Investment Entity if facts or circumstances indicate changes to one or
more of the elements making up the definition of an Investment Entity or the typical
characteristics of an Investment Entity.
Whilst PSG Group's focus on value creation for its shareholders has not changed, the
major corporate action detailed in the full announcement has necessitated PSG Group to
reassess its Investment Entity status in terms of IFRS, whereby it was determined that it
became an Investment Entity with effect from 1 March 2020. The performance of its
remaining investment portfolio is accordingly measured with reference to the fair value of
each investment (i.e. SOTP value) rather than the consolidated profitability of PSG Group
(i.e. recurring earnings) with effect from 1 March 2020 in PSG Group’s strive to meet its
objective of value creation through capital appreciation, investment income or both.
Where an entity’s status change to that of an Investment Entity, it does not consolidate its
subsidiaries, but rather measures subsidiaries at fair value through profit or loss. Such
change in accounting is applied prospectively, with no adjustment to prior year
comparatives. However, an Investment Entity continues to consolidate subsidiaries that
provide services related to the Investment Entity’s investment activities (i.e. those wholly-
owned subsidiaries comprising PSG Group’s head office operations).
Pursuant to the aforementioned change in Investment Entity status, PSG Group’s
financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2021, prepared in accordance with
IFRS, are not comparable to prior years. For the year under review, PSG Group reported
earnings per share of R139,08 (2020: R11,29) and headline earnings per share of R4,81
