[2] No pro-forma adjustments are applicable as there will be no identified effects on the income statement.

[3] As of the closing of the Transaction, the share price of Kopy Goldfields was 2,35 SEK/share, implying a pre transaction market cap of Kopy Goldfields of KSEK 243,991. Based on the equity of Kopy Goldfields on 30 June 2020 of KSEK 105,747, this implies a surplus value of KSEK 138,244 which has been attributed to the Krasny project. The share of Krasny had, as of 30 June 2020, a book value of KSEK 99,933. The difference between the fair value and the book value of KSEK 138,244 is treated as a pro forma adjustment to the asset and with a corresponding adjustment to equity. Any adjustments due to transaction costs have not been applied.

Comments to the pro-forma financial information

Substantial improvements were recorded in the financial results for the first half of 2020 compared to the corresponding period 2019. Revenues for the first six months of 2020 increased by 54% on the back of a 27% increase in the average realized gold price to USD 1,658 /oz and a 17% increase in gold sales volumes to 26.5koz.

EBITDA for the first half of 2020 amounted to KSEK 155,478 with an EBITDA margin of 36.3%, a significant improvement compared to the corresponding period in 2019, primarily driven by higher gold prices, but negatively affected by the Share of results of joint venture, which amounted to KSEK (6,958), mainly on the back of a negative FX effect.

Finance costs increased due to the recognition of fair value of new hedging instruments entered in the first half of 2020 of KSEK 13,450. The main reason for the increase in Other net operating expenses was an increase in geological expenses of KSEK 6,988 during the first half of 2020, related to a geological study of the Kurelkanskaya gold field (Buor placer).

Profit for the period amounted to KSEK 79,796, an increase by 91% compared to the corresponding period in 2019.

Production and sales

Amur Zoloto operates two bedrock mines, Yubileiny and Perevalnoe, and two placer mines, Buor-Sala and Kagkan-Chudny, in the Khabarovsk region of Russia. The gold production during the first half of 2020, compared with the gold production during first half of 2019, is presented in the following table:

Appendix 1

On 29 May 2020, Kopy Goldfields AB (publ) ("Kopy Goldfields") entered into an agreement with HC Alliance Mining Group Ltd. ("HCAM") and Lexor Group SA ("Lexor" and together with HCAM, the "AZ Shareholders") to acquire all shares in OOO Amur Gold Company Limited ("Amur Zoloto") through an in-kind share issue (Sw. apportemission) which is to be considered as a reverse takeover from Amur Zoloto. This reverse takeover ("The Transaction") was registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office on 7 September 2020.

With the purpose of illustrating the hypothetical impact of the Transaction could have had if it had been executed prior to the beginning of financial year 2020 and the financial position as of 30 June 2020, Kopy Goldfields has prepared a pro forma income statement for the first six months of 2020 and 2019, and a pro forma balance sheet as of 30 June 2020. The purpose of the following consolidated pro-forma information is to report the hypothetical effect which the Transaction would have had on Kopy Goldfields' consolidated income statement for the six months period 2020 and 2019, and consolidated financial position as of 30 June 2020.

The Transaction

Kopy Goldfields acquired 100 percent of the shares of Amur Zoloto, a gold producing company based in Russia, through a share exchange. The Transaction was structured as a contribution in kind where the AZ Shareholders contributed 100 percent of the shares in Amur Zoloto in exchange for a total of 782,179,706 shares in Kopy Goldfields.

Assumptions and judgements

Basis for pro-forma accounts
In the consolidated financial statements, the Transaction is recognised as a reverse acquisition as Amur Zoloto is deemed the acquirer for accounting purposes, whereby the Purchase Price Allocation ("PPA") is performed on Kopy Goldfields.

Accounting policies
The pro forma information has been based on IFRS as adopted by the EU and applied by Kopy Goldfields. Amur Zoloto applies IFRS as issued by the IASB but there are no differences in practice.

Amur Zoloto's income statement is categorised by function, while Kopy Goldfields' income statement is categorised by type of cost. To harmonise these differences, Kopy Goldfields adjustments have been made in the pro forma information to align with Amur Zoloto's presentation format as Kopy Goldfields will adopt it post transaction. This does not affect the operating profit.

Supporting data
The pro forma information for the period 1 January - 30 June 2020, 1 January - 30 June 2019, and 30 June 2020 has been prepared based on the unaudited financial statements of Kopy Goldfields and Amur Zoloto. Amur Zoloto uses RUB as its functional currency. The income statement of Amur Zoloto has been converted into SEK based on accumulated average RUB/SEK exchange rates, and the balance sheet has been converted into SEK based on the closing RUB/SEK exchange rate. The exchange rates used for the conversion to SEK are 0.1397 RUB/SEK in the income statement for the period 1 January - 30 June 2020 and 0.1327 RUB/SEK regarding the financial position as of 30 June 2020 and 0.1423 RUB/SEK in the income statement for the period 1 January 2020 - 30 June 2019.

No pro forma adjustments have been made with respect to synergy effects or integration costs.

Pro forma adjustments
The pro forma adjustments are described in detail below. The adjustments are recurring unless indicated otherwise.

1. Acquisition analysis

The preliminary acquisition analysis and pro forma information in general are based on the following assumptions:

  • As Amur Zoloto's shareholders gained control, the acquisition is deemed to be a so-called reverse acquisition whereby Amur Zoloto is treated as the acquirer of Kopy Goldfields from an accounting perspective.
  • The transaction is deemed to be an asset acquisition under IFRS 2 Share Based Payment, as an asset is acquired in exchange for shares. The fair value of Kopy Goldfields is predominately attributable to the investment in the JV containing the Krasny project.
  • As IFRS 2 is applicable, the fair value of the asset should be the basis of valuing the consideration of shares in the transaction. As of the closing of the transaction the share price of Kopy Goldfields was 2,35 SEK/share implying a pre transaction market cap of Kopy Goldfields of KSEK 243,991. Based on the equity of Kopy Goldfields as per 30 June 2020, of KSEK 105,747, this implies a surplus value of KSEK 138,244 which has been attributed to the Krasny project.
  • As the increase in value of the Krasny project is allocated to the rights owned by the JV which are not amortized, this means that no proforma adjustments is made in the income statement.
