About Clear Leisure Plc

Clear Leisure Plc (AIM: CLP) is an AIM listed investment company pursuing a dynamic strategy to create a comprehensive portfolio of companies primarily encompassing the leisure and real estate sectors mainly in Italy but also other European countries. The Company may be either a passive or active investor and Clear Leisure's investment rationale ranges from acquiring minority positions with strategic influence through to larger controlling positions. For further information, please visit, www.clearleisure.com 

 



 

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

During 2012, the major goals of the Company were to reduce its debt exposure, simplify the holding structure of its assets, while acquiring majority stakes in its three key subsidiaries and achieve synergies between its assets. The Group can report that the first three of these goals have now been achieved.

 

We have reorganised the structure of our holdings into two broad categories: Operational Assets and Investments for Sale, which include Mediapolis, Bibop and Geosim. Operational assets now focus around three key sectors, Hotels & Leisure, Theme Parks and Restaurants, with a number of other assets which are crucial to the growing infrastructure of the Group.

 

We have now completed this investment phase and all outstanding payments to acquire the majority stakes of those core operational assets which the Board believes are key to the future growth of the business have been settled.  The three strategic acquisitions in 2012 have been ORH S.p.A, a hotels and leisure group, Sipiem S.p.A, with interests in theme parks and You Can Group in the restaurant sector.

 

We are continuing to build our majority interests in these businesses and increased our holding in ORH S.p.A to 73.43% in June 2013. We expect to carry out similar transactions if and when opportunities to acquire shares in these subsidiaries become available and should we consider it strategically beneficial to the future performance of the Group.

 

As at the date of this announcement, no further progress has been made with regards to the sale of Mediapolis or our media company, Bibop. The Company will update shareholders with news on progress when it is forthcoming.

 

 

Financial Review

 

The consolidated net asset value (equity attributable to the Company) at 31 December 2012 was EUR 29.5 million, almost twice that of 2011 (EUR 16.2m) and corresponding to a fully diluted net asset value per share of 13.3 pence. Total equity, including non-controlling Interests increased to EUR 39.6 million.

 

The Group reported maiden Revenues of EUR 8.7 million and an Operating Profit of EUR 3.1 million (2011: Loss of EUR 2.6m), due in part to the buy-back of £2.7 million (EUR 3.3 million) of its outstanding bonds at a discounted rate of £1.6 million (EUR 1.9 million), as announced on 6 February 2013.

 

The impairment charge for the year was EUR 4.7 million, compared to EUR 3.5 million in the previous year to December 2011. This was due mainly to writing down certain assets within ORH S.p.A, and Bibop S.p.A, partly compensated by a revaluation gain of EUR 3 million, arising on the Mediapolis land following an appraisal carried out in October 2012.

 

The Group carried out two successful Placings during the year under review, with £2 million raised on 23 February 2012 and £2.8 million raised on 18 October 2012. Proceeds from these capital increases were used to fund the acquisitions mentioned above, with the remainder used as working capital.

 

The Group issued a EUR10 million Zero Coupon Bond on 25 March 2013 of which EUR 3 million has so far been sold to different European institutions, in line with the needs of the Group. The remaining EUR 6.9 million is held in treasury until required. The existing Convertible Bond was repaid using these proceeds at a substantial discount, realising the Group £1.1 million (EUR 1.4 million) in profit.

Board Appointments

 

On 29 May 2012 Francesco Emiliani was appointed as Non-Executive Director.

 

Nilesh Jagatia was appointed Head of Finance on 3 September 2012, becoming Clear Leisure's first UK based employee. Nilesh is responsible for working with the external auditor and finance departments of the investee companies to ensure prompt delivery of financial statements. Nilesh was appointed Group Finance Director on 18 October 2012.

 

Luke Johnson was appointed Non Executive Chairman on 18 October 2012.

 

 

Outlook

 

The Group is now more financially sound, with a number of strategic options available to increase shareholder value. It continues to review new acquisitions within the leisure sector and believes Italy offers substantial opportunities to acquire assets on attractive terms.  The Board has identified a number of targets which would be incorporated within the Ora Hotel Group and hopes to update shareholders on further developments later in the year.

 

The Board continues to look for buyers for its non-strategic assets, namely Mediapolis, GeoSim and Bibop. Once the sale of these assets is realised, the cash proceeds will be used to increase its leisure portfolio, specifically to increase the number of hotels it manages in Italy and to increase its direct ownership of the Sosushi restaurants. Further, Ora Hotel Group and its associated travel agencies will shortly launch a travel booking website, as within Italy, the Internet has not been a traditional method for booking holidays.

 

 

Annual Report and Notice of General Meeting

 

A copy of the audited annual report for the year ended 31 December 2012 will be available to shareholders from 27 June 2013 when a copy will be available for inspection on the Group's website at www.clearleisure.com.

 

The Notice of General Meeting will be posted to shareholders on or before 27June 2013 and the General Meeting will be held at 2pm on 7 August 2013 in London at a venue to be advised at a later date.

The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for certain financial instruments that are stated at their fair values.  Historical cost is generally based on the fair value of the consideration given in exchange for the assets.  The principal accounting policies have been consistently applied to all periods presented, except where stated.

 

3.     Change in accounting policy

These financial statements are presented in Euro because that is the currency of the primary economic environment in which the group now operates.  In 2011 the financial statements were presented in pounds sterling, so the comparative figures for that year and 2010 have been restated in Euro.  Transactions in currencies other than Euro are included in accordance with the policies set out in note 2. 

 

4.     Going Concern

The directors are satisfied that the group has sufficient resources, even though at the balance sheet date the group had extremely little liquidity, to meet its on-going operating costs and investment funding obligations. The directors are of the opinion that operational liabilities and contractual commitments can be settled from the timely disposal of investments, should the need arise, and from on-going future anticipated rounds of debt or equity funding.  Whilst there are inherent uncertainties in relation to future events, and therefore no certainty over the outcome of the matters described, the directors consider that, based upon financial projections and dependent on the success of their efforts to complete these activities, the Company and the Group will be going concerns for twelve months from the date of approval of these financial statements.   As a consequence, these financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis.

 

The projections for the year ended 31 December 2014 do not include any receipts from the sale of the investments held for sale.

 

5. Loss per share

 

The basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the earnings attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the same weighted average number of shares during the period adjusted for the dilutive effect of share options and convertible loans outstanding during the period.

 

The loss and weighted average number of shares used in the calculation are set out below:

IAS 33 requires presentation of diluted earnings per share when a company could be called upon to issue shares that would decrease earnings per share. In respect of 2011 and 2012 the diluted loss per share is the same as the basic loss per share as the loss for each year has an anti-dilutive effect.
