Final Results

Dillistone Group Plc ("Dillistone", the "Company" or the "Group"), the AIM quoted supplier of software for the international recruitment industry, is pleased to announce its audited final results for the 12 months ended 31 December 2019.

 

Highlights:

 

· Successfully completed the group restructuring to time and at the lower end of forecast cost.  New operating structure working well with reduced cost base

· Reorganisation financed through a £0.5m bank loan

· Recurring revenues1 represent 82% (2018: 82%) of Group revenue

· Adjusted operating loss2 of £0.207m (2018: profit £0.055m) before acquisition related, reorganisation and other costs

· Loss for the year of £0.842m (2018: loss £0.260m) reflecting the costs associated with reorganising the business

· Cash at 28 July 2020 was £2.1m, reflecting post period CBIL loan of £1.5m.

 

Current Trading & Outlook:

 

· The Group traded ahead of internal expectations during the early months of 2020, and speedy measures by management helped to mitigate some of the impact of Covid-19

· While revenue from existing clients has fallen, new business performance compared to the same period in 2019 has been encouraging, winning more new contracts for a higher combined value.

 

Covid-19:

 

· The Company has taken appropriate action to maintain a strong and stable financial position throughout this current period and for the future - including accessing Government schemes and a temporary company-wide pay cut

· On 3 June 2020, secured a £1.5m loan under the UK Government's Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan scheme ("CBIL Loan"), repayable over 6 years at an interest rate of 3.99% over base.  Interest is waived in the first twelve months and monthly repayments commence in July 2021.  The CBIL Loan can be repaid early without penalty. 

 

Commenting on the results and prospects, Giles Fearnley, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

 

"The changes made to the business in 2019 have improved our ability to meet the needs of our global clients swiftly and efficiently, while significantly reducing our cost base, and placed the business in a situation where we had fully anticipated a return to profitability in H1 of 2020.

 

"After a strong start to the year, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been significant but swift action to manage the cost base during this period, coupled with working to support our clients and improved new business performance, is enabling the Company to effectively work through the challenges.

 

"With a healthy cash balance and having protected and continued to invest in our product development, the Board is optimistic that the business will emerge strongly as the economy recovers."

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

2019 was a year of significant change. This started in February when the Group announced a fundamental reorganisation of the business.  This involved merging the two UK offices into a single, expanded location in Basingstoke, together with also relocating and expanding our Eastleigh development facility.  The Group has streamlined its corporate structures and operations, resulting in the UK businesses being combined into one trading entity and renamed Ikiru People Limited.  A similar reorganisation has occurred in Australia.  These changes came into effect on 31 December 2019, were delivered on time and within budget, and are delivering the planned efficiencies.

 

The restructuring was an important step in our plan to streamline our operating procedures while maintaining our excellent reputation for client service in order that the Group could deliver significantly improved performance starting immediately from 2020.

 

2020 started well for the Group with our early months delivering results ahead of internal expectations.  However, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our target market - the recruitment sector - is clear.  We've seen many of our clients shrink, with some clients closing. We have additionally supported many clients through agreeing discounted periods and deferred terms.

 

The Board has reacted swiftly, taking advantage of various government schemes, including furloughing, and staff unanimously supporting a temporary pay-cut, including all executive and non-executive directors.  In June 2020, the Company secured a loan of £1.5m under the UK Government's Business Interruption Loan scheme.  This enables us to continue to deliver and develop products with confidence.

 

The reorganisation in 2019 resulted in some staff working from home and this led to investment in infrastructure to support this.  This therefore enabled the Group immediately to move to home working for the majority of staff as a result of the pandemic and still operate efficiently and effectively.

 

Looking back at 2019, overall, Group revenue fell 8% to £8.027m, of which recurring revenue fell 8% to £6.593m of which £0.130m related to the loss of a major client as previously announced. 

 

There was an adjusted operating loss in 2019 of £0.207m (2018: Profit £0.055m), mainly due to the fall in revenue and with the full benefits of the reorganisation not expecting to be seen until 2020. The operating loss including reorganisation and acquisition related items was £1.090m (2018: loss £0.414m).

Dividends

The Group is not recommending a final dividend in respect of the year to 31 December 2019 (2018: nil).

Staff

On behalf of the Board I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff for their individual and collective contributions during 2019 and for the professional way they have all risen to the challenges of the pandemic, continuing to deliver for our clients. They ensured that we continued to deliver excellent service throughout 2019's major restructuring and it is through their efforts, commitment and determination that we continue to be a leading technology provider.

 

Corporate governance

It is the Board's duty to ensure that the Group is managed for long-term benefit of all stakeholders.

We have made a number of changes to our Group Board over the last 12 months.  I would like to sincerely thank my predecessor, Dr Mike Love, for his outstanding leadership of the Board over last 9 years.  I am very grateful to him for staying on in a non-executive role to allow for a smooth transition.

I also thank Rory Howard and Alistair Milne who both stepped down from the Board as the restructuring completed.  They have both contributed extensively to the business over very many years.  I am delighted to welcome Paul Mather and Simon Warburton to the Board. Both Paul and Simon joined the Group in 2011 on the acquisition of Voyager and have been leading members of the Executive Team.

 

Outlook

The Group was trading ahead of internal targets for 2020 prior to the impact of Covid-19 and swift action by management has helped mitigate some of the impact of the pandemic.

 

The majority of our clients are in the recruitment sector and this has been significantly affected by the recession.  Our client base has reduced in size with many of our clients having fewer licences than previously.  We believe this would be true for virtually any supplier in our sector.

 

However, we are pleased to report that - while revenue from existing clients has fallen - the business has improved its new business performance on the same period in 2019, winning more new contracts for a higher combined value, despite our decision to withdraw our "Evolve" product from the market.  While this will not make up for the loss of revenue from existing clients, it demonstrates our ability to compete successfully and gives us confidence of a return to growth when markets return to a semblance of normality.

 

However, the most likely outcome for H1 will be a small and much reduced loss compared with the prior year. It remains too early to quantify the impact of the pandemic over the full year, but the Board currently expects to see an improvement on our 2019 result.

 

With a healthy cash balance and having protected, and now, increasing investment in our product development, the Board is optimistic that the business will emerge strongly as the economy recovers.

CEO's Review

Dillistone Group Plc supplies products and services to facilitate recruitment.  We cover everything from retained executive search technology through to tools to facilitate the hiring of temporary staff, pay and bill, from pre-employment skills testing through to a B2C platform that allows executives to share information with executive search firms.

Strategy and objectives

In light of Covid-19, the Board has taken the view that until any material business risk from the pandemic is behind us, our objectives would be revised so that we can successfully navigate the crisis.  We will strive to ensure that we exit the current crisis in a strong position with products that meet the needs of clients.  Consequently, our focus will be to:

 

· Ensure our staff and their families stay safe, engaged and effective;

· Take all reasonable steps we can to help our clients through a challenging period for recruitment;

· Protect and prioritise our product and development efforts around solutions that reflect the needs of a post Covid world; and

· Take appropriate action to maintain a strong and stable financial position, throughout this period and into the future.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

 

The Board and management use absolute figures to monitor the performance of the business using the financial KPIs set out below.  As discussed above the Board has undertaken a major restructuring exercise to address the longer term performance of the business:

Restructuring

During the year, the Group merged two UK offices into a single, expanded location in Basingstoke.  We also relocated and expanded our Eastleigh development facility.  The Group also streamlined its corporate structures and operations to achieve efficiencies across the business.  This resulted in the five UK businesses being combined into one trading entity subsequently renamed Ikiru People Limited.  A similar reorganisation has occurred in Australia combining our two companies into one and renamed as Ikiru People Pty Limited.  Our sole business in the US was also renamed, Ikiru People Inc.

The restructuring and reorganisation has allowed us to integrate teams across the business and to leverage knowledge across the Group to accelerate performance and improve the quality of our services to our clients. 

As part of the reorganisation, a review was made of the Company product strategy.  As a result of this review, one of the Group's six core products, Evolve, was withdrawn from the market at the end of 2019.  Going forward, product development investment has been refocussed with a view to prioritising development which will lead to significant long term growth, rather than short term product enhancements.  This has led the Company to increase investment in areas such as user experience and quality assurance.

At the time that we announced our restructuring plans, we anticipated that the costs of the restructuring would be in the region of £500,000 to £900,000.  We are pleased to report that costs were at the lower end of this estimate at £578,000.  These costs were met without recourse to equity funding from shareholders.

Our business model

 

The business was previously split into three Divisions. Dillistone Systems and Voyager Software and GatedTalent.  The reorganisation has brought all of these businesses together into effectively one division with a focus more on the products we sell than on divisional structures.

The majority of our products are commercialised through one or more of the following:

1.  an upfront licence fee plus a recurring support fee;

2.  Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription basis; or

3.  a hybrid model incorporating an upfront payment and recurring support and cloud hosting fees.

 

There is a continuing move away from the upfront licence model towards our cloud delivery (SaaS) services.  The GatedTalent Division generates revenue from a combination of recruiter subscription fees and service fees from executives. 

The business operates out of Europe, the US and Australia but services clients globally.  As well as supplying and supporting our software we also host the software for a proportion of our clients.  This is done through Microsoft Azure and AWS data centres in Europe, the Americas, Singapore and Australia. 

Group review of the business

2019 saw recurring revenues fall 8% to £6,593m (2018: £7.154m) of which £0.130m related to the previously announced loss of a major client and with attrition exceeding new contract wins in the year.  Non-recurring revenues were in line with the previous year at £1.160m (2018: £1.169m).  As a result, overall revenues decreased by 8% to £8.027m (2018: £8.692m) with recurring revenues representing 82% of Group revenues (2018: 82%).  Cost of sales reduced 19% to £0.849m (2018: £1.054m).

Adjusted EBITDA1 was down 1% to £1.282m (2018: £1.301m).  There was an adjusted operating loss of £0.207m (2018: profit £0.055m) and there was a pre-tax loss before acquisition related items and reorganisation and other adjustments of £(0.298)m (2018: profit £0.018m).  The operating loss for the year increased to £1.090m (2018: loss £0.414m) with reorganisation and other costs totalling £0.578m (2018: £nil) and acquisition related amortisation of £0.305m (2018: £0.469m).  The loss for the year was £0.842m (2018: loss £0.260m).  Cash at the year end was £0.402m (2018: £0.725m).

1 Adjusted EBITDA is adjusted operating profit with depreciation and amortisation added back.  See note 5.

 

Divisional Reviews as structured through 2019

Dillistone Systems

The Dillistone Systems division was primarily focused on providing technology solutions to the executive search market via our range of "FileFinder" applications.  This client group is made up of both executive search firms and executive search teams in major organisations.

The Division accounts for 49% (2018: 48%) of the Group's revenue and it saw revenue fall 7% to £3.895m (2018: £4.195m).

The executive search market remains a key market for our business and is one we continue to invest in significantly. 

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation ('EBITDA') improved to £1.021m (2018: £0.723m) as costs improved despite reduced sales.  The total amortisation and depreciation charge was £0.747m (2018: £0.644m).  Operating profit for 2019 was £0.094m (2018: £0.079m) after reorganisation and other costs of £0.180m.

Voyager Software

Voyager Software was a provider of technology products targeted at the entire recruitment landscape, from front office to back office and bureaus, and includes both recruitment management systems and pre-employment skills testing technology.

In 2019, the Voyager Software division accounted for 47% (2018: 51%) of Group revenues.  The Division's revenues decreased by 14% to £3.795m (2018: £4.429m) £0.130m of this due to the previously announced loss of a major client.  EBITDA decreased to £0.691m (2018: £1.003m). Amortisation and depreciation increased to £0.553m (2018: £0.475m).  Divisional operating loss was £(0.34)m after reorganisation and other costs of £0.172m (2018: £0.528m).

2019 saw some major developments in the Division including:

 

· The addition of IR35 support for both public and private sector workers in our Infinity and Mid-Office pay and bill solution

· Significantly improved support for the placement of shift based temps

· Release of a full suite of Power BI based business intelligence function to clients on our SaaS platform

· Enhancements to our ISV.Online suite

· Withdrawal of the Evolve product from the market, successfully switching the majority of clients onto our Infinity application

GatedTalent

 

GatedTalent was established in 2017 to provide a network allowing executives to share information with selected executive recruiters in a GDPR compliant manner.  The GatedTalent product was launched in late 2017 with first revenues occurring in 2018. 

Revenue is being generated from executive recruiters through subscriptions to the platform and through Member Services generating a premium B2C revenue stream for the Division. 

The Division generated revenue of £0.337m (2018: £0.068m) and made an operating loss before reorganisation and other costs of £0.484m (2018 loss: 0.612m) after depreciation and amortisation charges of £0.189m (2018: £0.127m).  The reorganisation and other costs credit of £1.427m mainly related to the write off of intercompany funding from Dillistone Group which was not expected to be recoverable in the foreseeable future. In 2020, although we no longer report profits on a divisional level, it is the view of the Board that the GatedTalent product is now consistently generating cash.

Following the reorganisation, the divisional structure has been dismantled and in 2020 the business will not report on a divisional basis.

 

Covid-19

 

The Impact of Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the world economy and in our target market - recruitment.  This has impacted our business as we have seen many of our clients shrink, with other clients closing. This directly impacts our revenue.

 

We reacted swiftly to minimise the impact of Covid-19, taking the following actions:

· Approximately 20% of our UK staff have been furloughed under the government scheme

· Other staff and Directors have agreed to a temporary pay cut

· The vast majority of our staff switched to home working

· Our clients were offered support packages to help them survive the period and, hopefully, remain as customers

· Used government support in other jurisdictions where appropriate

· Agreed the postponement of bank loan repayments on our £500,000 loan for 6 months

· Obtained in June 2020 a £1.5m loan under the Government's Business Interruption loan scheme

 

Uncertainty around the scale, timing and impact of the coronavirus pandemic means it is difficult to give meaningful external guidance for forecasts in the year ahead. We have analysed a range of outcomes for the current year for different sales scenarios.  Further details are contained in Note 2 on Basis of Preparation. We have performed stress testing on our cashflows, to determine what is the maximum strain that the business could bear over the next 12 months in respect of the potential impacts of Covid-19.  We are pleased to note that, with the funding support in place, our Balance Sheet is now strong, with significant cash available to us at very competitive rates.

 

Financial Review

 

Total revenues decreased by 8% to £8.027m (2018: £8.692m) with recurring revenues decreasing by 8% to £6.593m (2018: £7.154m) while non-recurring revenues decreased by 1% to at £1.160m (2018: £1.169m).  Third party resell revenue amounted to £0.274m in the period (2018: £0.369m). 

 

Cost of sales decreased to £0.849m (2018: £1.054m).  Administrative costs, excluding acquisition related items, reorganisation and other costs, depreciation and amortisation, fell 7% to £5.896m (2018: £6.337m) as measures were taken to reduce the cost base.  Depreciation and amortisation (excluding acquisition related amortisation) increased to £1.489m (2018: £1.246m).

 

Acquisition related and reorganisations and other costs totalled £0.883m (2018: £0. 469m) and were in respect of:

· the amortisation of intangibles arising on the Voyager, FCP and ISV acquisitions £0.305m (2018: £0.469m).

· reorganisation and other costs totalled £0.578m (2018: £nil)

 

Recurring revenues covered 89% of administrative expenses before acquisition related and reorganisation and other costs (2018: 94%).  Excluding depreciation and amortisation of our own internal development, the administrative costs (before acquisition related and reorganisation and other costs) are covered 112% (2018: 112%) by recurring revenues.

 

The Group benefitted from an income tax credit in 2019 of £0.339m (2018: credit £0.191m).  The 2019 credit reflects the R&D tax credits available to all three divisions and the assumption that any tax losses will be surrendered for the R&D tax credit payment.  It also reflects a prior year adjustment of a credit of £0.140m as the tax computations in respect of prior years were finalised and agreed.  The acquisition related items tax credit of £0.058m (2018: £0.089m) reflects the reduction in deferred tax that arises as amortisation is charged in the profit and loss account. 

 

Profit for the year before acquisition related and reorganisation and other costs amounted to a loss of £0.030m (2018: profit £0.120m).  The 2019 adjusted profits benefitted from tax income of £0.268m (2018: tax income of £0.102m). The statutory loss for the year after acquisition related items and reorganisation and other costs was £0.842m (2018: loss £0.260m).  Basic loss per share (EPS) fell to (4.28)p (2018: (1.32)p).  Fully diluted EPS fell to (4.28)p (2018: (1.32)p).  Adjusted basic EPS fell to (0.15)p (2018: 0.61p).

 

Dillistone Group Plc company results show a loss of £1.843m (2018: profit £1.338m) after a write-off of the intercompany loan with GatedTalent of £1.450m which was necessary to facilitate the reorganisation of the Group.

 

Capital expenditure

 

The Group invested £1.100m in property, plant and equipment and product development during the year (2018: £1.536m).  This expenditure included £1.067m (2018: £1.446m) spent on capitalised development related costs.

 

Trade and other payables


As with previous years, the trade and other payables includes deferred income of £2.873m (2018: £3.575m), i.e. income which has been billed in advance but is not recognised as income at that time.  This principally relates to support, SaaS, cloud hosting renewals and other subscriptions, which are billed in 2019 but are in respect of services to be delivered in 2020.  It also includes licence revenue for which a support contract is required, and which is spread over 5 years under IFRS15.  Contractual income is recognised monthly over the period to which it relates.  It also includes deposits taken for work which has not yet been completed; as such income is only recognised when the work is substantially complete, or the client software goes "live".  

 

The Group implemented IFRS 16 during the year.  The result is to recognise right to use assets on the balance sheet of £0.754m as at the year end and the corresponding lease liabilities which totalled £0.823m.  See Note 9 for more detailed analysis.

 

Cash and debt

 

The Group finished the year with cash funds of £0.402m (2018: £0.725m) made up of positive (£0.690m) and negative (£0.288m) current account balances which can be netted off under the banking facility.

 

The Group obtained a loan of £0.5m in June 2019 of which £0.126m was repaid in the year leaving £0.374m (2018: £nil) repayable at the year end.  It also had a convertible loan of £0.412m (2018: £0.404m).  It was agreed in the year that the convertible loan notes would not be repaid until the bank loan for repaid.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2019

 

 

1.  Publication of non-statutory accounts

 

In accordance with section 435 of the Companies Act 2006, the Directors advise that the financial information set out in this announcement does not constitute the Group's statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 or 2018, but is derived from these financial statements. The financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 have been audited and filed with the Registrar of Companies. The financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union. The financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 have been audited and will be filed with the Registrar of Companies following the Company's Annual General Meeting. The Independent Auditors Report on the Group's statutory financial statements for the years ended 31 December 2019 and 2018 were unqualified and did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis and did not contain statements under Section 498(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

2.  Basis of preparation

 

The preliminary announcement is extracted from the consolidated financial statements of the Group. The financial statements of the subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting date as the parent company. Consistent accounting policies are applied for like transactions and events in similar circumstances.

 

All intra-group balances, transactions, income and expenses and profits and losses resulting from intra-group transactions that are recognised in assets or liabilities are eliminated in full.

 

The uncertainty as to the future impact on the Group of the recent Covid-19 outbreak has been considered as part of the Group's adoption of the going concern basis. The Group has seen many of its clients shrink and with some clients closing.  It has additionally supported many clients through agreeing discounted periods and deferred terms.  Accordingly, the Group will see a reduction in revenue in 2020.  However, the Group has acted quickly, taking advantage of various government schemes, including furloughing, and staff unanimously supporting a temporary pay-cut, including all executive and non-executive directors.  The Group also agreed a 6 month payment holiday on its existing bank loan.  The Company has also secured a loan of £1.5m under the UK Government's Business Interruption Loan (CBIL) scheme.

 

The Board has considered various downside scenarios on the Group's results as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. In preparing this analysis the following assumptions were made for the base case: a reduction in recurring revenue and non recurring revenue in 2020 with some recovery in the second half of 2020 but with revenue not returning to full pre Covid-19 levels in 2020 or 2021.  This base case took £0.5m off 2020 revenue.  A further scenario was modelled ("stress test scenario") that took a further £0.5m off revenue with a deeper long term impact on the business. 

 

If revenue were to fall in line with the stress test model, the Company would take further remedial action to counter the reduction in profit and cash through a cost cutting exercise that would include staff redundancies and general cost control measures.  On this basis, the Group's cash reserves would be reduced to £nil in May 2021 though it would still have access to its bank overdraft of £0.2m.

 

Based on current trading, the stress test scenario is considered unlikely. However, it is difficult to predict the overall impact and outcome of Covid-19 at this stage, particularly if there was a second wave towards the end of 2020. Nevertheless, after making enquiries, and considering the uncertainties described above and after receiving a CBIL loan of £1.5m, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. For these reasons, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the annual report and accounts. 

 

 

3.  Accounting policies and changes thereto

 

This preliminary announcement has been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies adopted in the last annual financial statements for the year to 31 December 2018.

 

IFRS 16 are effective for the first time for the financial year beginning on or after 1 January 2019.  IFRS 16 specifies how the Group will recognise, measure, present and disclose leases. The standard provides a single lessee accounting model, requiring lessees to recognise assets and liabilities for all leases unless the lease term is 12 months or less or the underlying asset has a low value. From 1 January 2019 the Group recognised an asset reflecting the right of use leased asset for the Company's two property leases and an equipment lease, and a lease liability reflecting the obligation to make lease payments. Both the asset and the liability have been recognised on the balance sheet where previously they were off balance sheet. There was no impact on cash flow but there was an impact on the Income Statement as the operating lease payment included within administrative expenses was replaced with a depreciation charge on the leased asset (included in administrative expenses) and an interest expense on the lease liability (included in financial cost). EBITDA also increased as both interest cost and depreciation charge are excluded from the calculation. Note 9 outlines the effect of IFRS 16 on the financial statements.

Revenue

 

In the analysis above 'Recurring income' represents all income recognised over time, whereas 'Non-recurring income' and 'Third party revenues' represent all income recognised at a point in time. 

 

Recurring income includes all support services, SaaS and hosting income and revenue on perpetual licenses with mandatory support contracts deferred under IFRS 15. Non-recurring income includes

 

sales of new licenses which do not require a support contract, and income derived from installing licences including training, installation and data translation.  Third party revenues arise from the sale of third party software.

 

It is not possible to allocate assets and additions between recurring, non-recurring income and third party revenue. No customer represented more than 10% of revenue of the Group in 2019 or 2018.

There are 1,970,005 (2018: 919,848) share options not included in the above calculations, as they are underwater or have not yet vested.

 

The impact of the convertible loan notes in the period is not dilutive and therefore does not impact the calculation of the fully diluted earnings per share.

 

9.  IFRS 16 impact on 2019 results

 

From 1 January 2019, the Group accounts for its leases under IFRS 16 as set out in Note 1, resulting in the following amounts being recorded:

 

Impacts on financial statements:

The effect of initially applying this standard is as follows:

(I)  recognition of a right of use asset and depreciation of this asset;

(II)  removal of rent prepayment/accrual and charge to statement of profit or loss; and

(III)  recognition of lease liability non-current and current and interest on this liability.

 

The following table summarises the impact of transition to IFRS 16 on retained earnings at 1 January 2019.

As set out in Note 1, the Group has applied the modified retrospective approach with recognition of transitional adjustments on the date of initial application, being 1 January 2019, without restatement of comparative figures. 

 

On adoption of IFRS 16, the Group recognised right-of-use assets and lease liabilities in relation to leases of office space.  The Group has applied the practical expedient not to recognise right-of-use assets and liabilities for leases with less than 12 months of lease term remaining as of the date of initial application, as permitted by the standard.

 

Lease liabilities were measured at the present value of the remaining lease payments, discounted using the Group's incremental borrowing rate (being the rate at which a similar borrowing could be obtained from an independent creditor under comparable terms and conditions).  The Group applied the practical expedient permitted by the standard to apply a similar discount rate to a portfolio of leases with similar characteristics.  The rate applied was 5%. The right-of-use assets were recognised by reference to the measurement of the lease liability on that date, including estimates for items such as dilapidation cost obligations under the lease, and amortised on a straight-line basis.

The effects of adopting IFRS 16 for the period ending 31 December 2019 are as follows:
