September 30, 2020

The information contained within this announcement is deemed by the Company to constitute inside information as stipulated under the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 ("MAR"). Upon publication of this announcement via a regulatory information service ("RIS"), the inside information contained in this document is now considered to be in the public domain.

 

ZENITH ENERGY LTD.    

("Zenith" or the "Company") 

Preliminary unaudited financial results for the year ended March 31, 2020

Zenith Energy Ltd. ("Zenith" or the "Company") (LSEZEN; OSE: ZENA-ME), the listed international oil & gas production company focused on pursuing African development opportunities, is pleased to announce its preliminary unaudited consolidated financial results for the year ended March 31, 2020.

 

Following consultations with its independent auditor, PKF LittleJohn, and a result of the imminent potential award of a new 25-year license in the Republic of the Congo for the Tilapia oilfield, the Company will publish its audited financial results for the year ended March 31, 2020 around the week starting October 19, 2020.

 

Zenith can also confirm that it has engaged the auditors to perform an ISRE 2410 review on the interim financial statements for the six months ended September 30, 2020.

 

Further, the Company is in the process of engaging a Big 4 accounting firm to perform a Purchase Price Allocation exercise ("PPA") in respect of the acquisition of Anglo African Oil & Gas Congo S.A.U ("AAOG Congo").

 

Shareholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these preliminary results as material differences may arise once the audited financial results are published.


The Company and its subsidiaries have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to be affected.  The pandemic has caused problems with international travel and in the availability of appropriate individuals both within the Company and among suppliers and government-sector bodies with which it interacts.  In addition, the sharp decline in world economic output as a result of the pandemic, has had a negative impact on oil prices and demand for oil products. While the Board believes matters will improve substantially in the future as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are progressively overcome, there remains a material possibility that the pandemic situation may deteriorate further, which would impact the financial situation of the Company.

 

Commenting on the results, Mr. Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer, stated:

 

"We are pleased to have achieved significant reductions in our G&A expenses for the year ended March 31, 2020.

 

These results also reflect the reconfiguration of the Company's geographic footprint following the cessation of oil production activities in Azerbaijan and our new focus on acquiring onshore oil production and development assets in Africa.

 

We are fully confident our recently announced acquisitions will strongly position the Company, especially in terms of profitability, when oil prices progressively recover with a return to normalised worldwide economic activity following the progressive alleviation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

In agreement with our independent auditors, we have delayed the publication of our audited financial results for the year ended March 31, 2020 whilst we await a final decision from the Ministry of Hydrocarbons of the Republic of the Congo in response to our comprehensive technical and commercial offer for a new 25-year license for the Tilapia oilfield.

 

I look forward to reporting on our exciting progress in due course."

Notes to Editors

Zenith Energy Ltd. is an international oil and gas production company, listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:ZEN) and the Merkur Market of the Oslo Stock Exchange (ZENA:ME).

Zenith's development strategy is to identify and rapidly seize value-accretive hydrocarbon production opportunities in the onshore oil & gas sector, specifically in Africa. The Company's board of directors and senior management team have the experience and technical expertise to develop the Company successfully.

 

Chairman's statement

 

Introduction

 

In the year ended March 31, 2020, a number of material changes took place with regards to the Company's development strategy and geographic concentration.

 

The Company is pursuing an ambitious acquisition campaign in Africa by maximizing the use of its financial resources to enrich its portfolio, at a time of singular opportunity made possible by the significant decline in oil prices caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, to acquire highly prospective production, development and exploration assets in Tunisia and the Republic of the Congo

 

The Board believes this strategy will enable Zenith to develop successfully and, in doing so, create value for all stakeholders.

 

 

 

New African development strategy

 

On March 2, 2020, the Company announced that, in view of Zenith's strategic focus on pursuing large-scale oil production and development opportunities in Africa, it would return the Contract Rehabilitation Area ("CRA") to SOCAR.

 

The Company's publicly reported difficulties in increasing production from the CRA since 2016, as well as its past and future investment obligations, led the Board of Directors to unanimously agree, in the interest of shareholders, that the Company's future success could be better achieved in other assets with existing production and near-term development and exploration potential in Africa.

 

The low oil price environment has facilitated access to a number of highly attractive acquisition opportunities as a result of large international oil companies restructuring their portfolios and selling, at advantageous commercial terms, their working interests in small to medium size assets across the region.

 

Zenith's recent acquisitions in Tunisia from KUFPEC and CNPC, two world-renowned oil companies, are evidence of this strategy being implemented. Upon completion, conditional upon regulatory approval being granted by the Comité Consultatif des Hydrocarbures ("CCH") of the Republic of Tunisia, it is expected that Zenith will have a daily production ranging between 250-300 barrels of oil per day. The Board of Directors is highly satisfied with the commercial terms agreed for both transactions and is currently exploring further opportunities of this kind.

 

The acquisition of Anglo African Oil & Gas Congo S.A.U ("AAOG Congo") from AAOG plc (a company quoted on the AIM of the London Stock Exchange), the former operator of the highly prospective Tilapia license in the Republic of the Congo, represents a potentially transformational opportunity for the Company. The Board is pleased to have been able to renegotiate the initially agreed consideration of £1 million for an 80% interest (announced on December 27, 2020) to a final consideration of £200,000 for a 100% interest in AAOG Congo (announced on April 17, 2020). The acquisition of AAOG Congo has not only enabled Zenith to acquire an existing operator in the Republic of the Congo, but also US$5.3 million in receivables owed to AAOG Congo by Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo ("SNPC"), the national oil company of the Republic of the Congo, and the novation to Zenith of 100% of the inter-company loans between AAOG Congo and AAOG plc, equivalent to approximately to approximately £12.5 million as of the date of completion of the acquisition.

 

As publicly announced, the Company has submitted a comprehensive commercial and technical offer to the Ministry of Hydrocarbons of the Republic of the Congo for the award of a new 25-year license for the Tilapia oilfield. The Company has established Zenith Energy Congo SA ("Zenith Congo"), at the request of the Ministry of Hydrocarbons of the Republic of the Congo, for the purpose of participating in the bid process and, it is hoped, receive a new 25-year license for the Tilapia oilfield.

 

We thank shareholders for their support during what have been unprecedented times and we look forward with enthusiasm to delivering on our publicly announced objectives.

b)     Sold 70,005 bbls of oil from its assets in Azerbaijan, as compared to 75,913 bbls of oil sold in the 2019 similar period.  As at March 31, 2020, inventory consists of CAD $264 (2019 - CAD $nil) of crude oil that has been produced but not yet sold, and CAD $1,623k of materials (2019 - CAD $156k).

c)     Sold 17,666 mcf of natural gas from its Italian assets, as compared to 10,868 mcf of natural gas in the 2019 similar period.

d)     Sold 10,500 MWh of electricity from its Italian electricity production assets, as compared to 9,433 MWh for the corresponding period of 2019. 

e)     Sold 214 bbls of condensate from its Italian assets, as compared 628 bbls of condensate in the 2019 similar period.

 

Financing activities

 

The Company issued equity during the course of the financial year ended March 31, 2020, raising a combined net total of CAD$20.226m to finance its operational activities and fund the purchase of key operational equipment for the development of its operational activities in Azerbaijan.

 

During the year, 316,645,857 new common shares were issued, as detailed in the financial statements (note 15).

 

On January 20, 2020, the Company announced the issuance of the following unsecured, multi-currency Euro Medium Term Notes at par value (the "Notes"):

 

·    EURO 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.125 per cent per year (the "EUR-Notes")

·    GBP 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.50 per cent per year (the "GBP-Notes")

·    USD 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.375 per cent per year (the "USD-Notes")

·    CHF 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.00 per cent per year (the "CHF-Notes")

 

        The Notes were issued under Zenith's EUR 25,000,000 multi-currency Euro Medium Term Notes Programme, as announced by the Company on November 6, 2019, and will be due on January 27, 2024. The Notes were admitted to trading on the Third Market (MTF) of the Vienna Stock Exchange ("Wiener Borse AG").

 

        The Notes are governed by Austrian law and, since the Notes are not convertible into equity of Zenith, the issuance of the Notes was not subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada.

 

        The issue of the Notes is aligned with the Company's strategy of diversifying its financing towards non-equity dilutive funding to support its successful development.

The Seller holds an undivided 22.5% interest in the Tunisian Acquisition, together with 25 Class B shares in Compagnie Tuniso-Koweito-Chinoise de Pétrole (CTKCP), the operator, representing 22.5% of the issued share capital of the company.

 

The Seller agreed to sell, assign and transfer to Zenith Netherlands the Tunisian Acquisition on the terms and subject to the conditions set out in the SPA.

The consideration payable by Zenith Netherlands under the SPA was US$500,000.

 

·    On April 22, 2020, the Company announced the total repayment of the Loan Facility for US$1,485,000 and accrued interest. 

 

The amount of the principal, and related accrued interest, of the Loan Facility is represented and accounted as a liability in the audited Annual Financial Report of the Company as of March 31, 2019, and in the unaudited Q2 Financial Statements as of September 30, 2019, for an aggregate amount of US$2,080,523.

Completion of the Tunisian Acquisition remains conditional on approval being granted by the Comité Consultatif des Hydrocarbures   of the Republic of Tunisia in respect of the transfer of the Seller's right, title and interest in and under the Tunisian Acquisition to Zenith Netherlands. Zenith has initiated the necessary formalities in relation to the aforementioned approval process, and that a decision is expected in due course.

 

·      On June 25, 2020, the Company announced it completed the handover process (the "Handover") of the Contract Rehabilitation Area to SOCAR in the Republic of Azerbaijan. As a result of the Handover, Zenith has ceased all oil production operations in Azerbaijan and all field production personnel, approximately 170 employees, have been transferred to a division of SOCAR.

 

·      On July 7, 2020, the Company announced that it has entered into a joint venture agreement (the "Agreement") with a local oil & gas company in the Republic of the Congo.

 

The primary objective of the Agreement is the potential acquisition of an onshore oil production license (the "Potential Acquisition"), last producing at a rate of approximately 300 barrels of oil per day from the regionally proven Mengo formation as recently as 2019. Production has currently been suspended pending the assignation of a new license.

 

The Potential Acquisition is located in the Kouilou region of the Republic of the Congo in proximity of Pointe-Noire, the country's second largest city, and is also in the vicinity of Tilapia, the Company's recently acquired oil production asset with transformational production potential.

 

Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company and its local partner will jointly submit an application to the relevant authorities in the Republic of the Congo, including the Ministry of Hydrocarbons, for the award of a new license in relation to the Potential Acquisition.

 

Further, in accordance with the Agreement, it is stipulated that Zenith shall have the role of joint operator and majority partner in the event that a new license is successfully obtained in relation to the Potential Acquisition.

 

Following preliminary technical analysis of the Potential Acquisition, as part of the due diligence activities conducted prior to entering into the Agreement, Zenith is confident that profitable oil production operations can be achieved following the reactivation of the Potential Acquisition and the performance of targeted, low-intensity workover activities.

 

·      On July 31, 2020, the Company announced the termination, by mutual agreement between the parties, of the sale and purchase agreement entered into with Coro Energy plc ("Coro") relating to the proposed acquisition by Zenith of Coro's entire Italian natural gas production and exploration portfolio.

CEO Statement

 

Zenith Energy Ltd. ("Zenith" or the "Group") is an international oil and gas production Group, incorporated in Canada, listed on the Main Market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "ZEN" and on the Merkur Market of the Oslo Stock Exchange under the ticker "ZENA:ME".

 

Zenith's strategic objective is to become a mid-tier, Africa focused hydrocarbon production and exploration company. Specific attention is directed towards assets with proven development potential via development drilling, field rehabilitation, and low-risk exploration activities.

 

In view of the recent decline in oil prices, as well as macroeconomic developments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a singular time of opportunity has come about for companies such as Zenith to acquire, at highly commercially advantageous terms, oil and gas production and exploration assets being divested by many oil majors and leading oil and gas companies.  As a leadership team, we are seeking to maximize this opportunity in order to ensure Zenith emerges from the current low oil price environment a much stronger and larger entity with significant future development potential.

 

We are very pleased to have recently concluded two separate transactions with CNPC, one of the largest oil and gas corporations in the world, and KUFPEC, a subsidiary of the State of Kuwait's national oil company, to acquire their respective working interests of 22.5% in the Sidi El Kilani Concession and the North Kairouan permit in Tunisia, which contain the producing Sidi El Kilani oilfield. We look forward with confidence to receiving regulatory approval from the Comité Consultatif des Hydrocarbures of the Republic of Tunisia in respect of the transfer of ownership for both acquisitions in due course.

 

Similarly, we are delighted to have established a presence in the Republic of the Congo following our acquisition of Anglo African Oil & Gas Congo S.A.U ("AAOG Congo"), the former Congolese subsidiary of Anglo African Oil & Gas plc (a company listed on the AIM of the London Stock Exchange) in May 2020. The decline in oil prices brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as renegotiations with the seller, enabled Zenith to acquire, at highly advantageous terms, an interest, albeit brief, in the now expired Tilapia I license (expired on July 18, 2020), as well as receivables of approximately US$5.3 million dollars owed by SNPC (Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo) and the full novation to Zenith of intercompany loans between AAOG plc and AAOG Congo equivalent to US$16 million.

 

As publicly announced, the Company has presented a comprehensive commercial and technical offer (the "Offer") to the Ministry of Hydrocarbons of the Republic of the Congo in order to be awarded a new 25-year license for the Tilapia oilfield (to be named Tilapia II).  We are confident that we shall be successful in obtaining a new 25-year license. In the event our Offer is accepted, the Company will look to begin drilling activities in well TLP-103C at the earliest opportunity.

 

We are aware that the Company's operational track record in Azerbaijan, and the handover of the Contract Rehabilitation Area ("CRA") to SOCAR announced to the market on March 2, 2020, disappointed market expectations. However, in view of the significant resources deployed to date and the future obligations required for future development, as well as the underwhelming operational results, the Board of Directors is firmly of the view that this outcome was in the best interests of shareholders and the future commercial success of the Company. The operational challenges, as publicly communicated on a number of occasions, was due, inter alia, to the severely dilapidated condition of the wells from the Soviet era, the unreliability of historical data, and the highly challenging geology of the field.

 

The results for the year ended March 31, 2020, ("2020 FY") reflect the significant changes the Group has undergone during the course of the 2020 Financial Year, specifically in result of the impairment resulting from the handover of the CRA in Azerbaijan and its associated reserves. However, it should be underlined, on a positive note, that we have been able to achieve a significant reduction in our General and Administrative Expenses during the 2020 FY to CAD$3,361k, compared to CAD$5,251k incurred in the preceding financial year ended March 31, 2019.

 

We are very excited about our countercyclical acquisition campaign in Africa in the current low oil price environment, especially the highly prospective development production potential of the Tilapia oilfield in the event we are successful in being awarded a new 25-year license and the material daily production revenue to be obtained from completion of our acquisitions in Tunisia. Indeed, we are hopeful to conclude further acquisitions of a similar kind in due course.

 

I thank shareholders for their loyal support. As is clear, my confidence in Zenith, as well as that of the team, remains unchanged. We fully believe that our new geographic concentration in Africa, in less geologically challenging assets acquired at highly advantageous commercial terms, will enable the Company to achieve its operational objectives and deliver value to our investors.

 

The Board is committed to sustained growth and exploiting any value accretive opportunities that may present themselves. We shall continue to evaluate the acquisition of additional energy production opportunities building on the momentum of our recent progress to further support the Group's expansion.

Notes to the financial statements

 

1.      Corporate and Group information

 

The unaudited financial information for the year ended March 31, 2020 contained in this preliminary announcement was approved by the Board on September 30, 2020. This announcement does not constitute the final accounts for the Group but is derived from those accounts.  Accounts for the year ended March 31, 2019 have been lodged as required. Statutory accounts for the year ended March 31, 2020 will be lodged as required. The auditors have reported on the 2019 accounts. Their reports were not qualified but within the key audit matter in relation to the carrying value of D and P assets drew attention to the fact the licenses may be lost should the required production levels within the REDSPA not be satisfied. It also included a material uncertainty in relation to going concern.

 

New standards and interpretations

 

a.   Adoption of new and revised standards

The following IFRSs or IFRIC interpretations are those that were effective for the first time for the financial year beginning April 1, 2019 and relevant to the entity:

 

Standard / Interpretation/Amendments

 

IFRS 9

Pre-pay-ment Features with Negative Com-pen-sa-tion to address the concerns about how IFRS 9 'Financial In-stru-ments' clas-si-fies par-tic-u-lar pre-payable financial assets. In addition, the IASB clarified an aspect of the accounting for financial li-a-bil-i-ties following a mod-i-fi-ca-tion.

IFRS 16

Leases

 

IAS 19 (plan amend-ments)

Plan Amendment, Cur-tail-ment or Set-tle-ment to harmonise accounting practices and to provide more relevant in-for-ma-tion for de-ci-sion-mak-ing.

 

IAS 28 (long-term interests)

Long-term Interests in As-so-ci-ates and Joint Ventures to clarify that an entity applies IFRS 9 'Financial In-stru-ments' to long-term interests in an associate or joint venture that form part of the net in-vest-ment in the associate or joint venture but to which the equity method is not applied.

 

IFRIC 23

Un-cer-tainty over Income Tax Treat-ments.

 

Annual Im-prove-ments to IFRS Standards 2015-2017 Cycle

Amend-ments to IAS 12 "Income Taxes", IAS 23 "Borrowing Costs", IFRS 3 "Business Combinations" and IFRS 11 "Joint Arrangements" as result of the IASB's annual im-prove-ments project.

 

 

The adoption of these new and revised Standards and Interpretations has not resulted in significant changes to the Group's accounting policies that have affected the amounts reported for the current or prior years.

 

 

 

 

b.   New standards and interpretations in issue but not yet effective

 

At the date of authorization of these financial statements, the Group has not applied the following new and revised IFRSs that have been issued but are not yet effective:

Standard / Interpretation

impact on initial application

effective date

IFRS 17

Insurance contracts.

1 January 2021

 

The Directors do not expect that the adoption of the Standards listed above, in particular IFRS 16, will have a material impact on the financial statements of the Group in future periods.

 

Business combinations

 

The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for acquisitions of subsidiaries and assets that meet the definition of a business under IFRS. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange. The consideration transferred includes the fair value of any asset or liability resulting from a contingent consideration agreement.

 

Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at fair value at the acquisition date. The excess of the cost of acquisition over the fair value of the identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities acquired is recorded as goodwill. If the cost of an acquisition is less than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, a bargain purchase gain is recognised immediately in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

 

Transaction costs that are incurred in connection with a business combination other than those associated with the issue of debt or equity instruments are expensed as incurred.

 

Intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated on consolidation, and any unrealized income and expenses arising from intercompany transactions are eliminated in preparing the consolidated financial statements.

 

 

2.      Administrative expenses

 

During the year ended March 31, 2020, the Group incurred CAD$ 5,479k (2019 - CAD$ 7,957k) of Administrative Expenses.  Furthermore, during the same period the Group incurred CAD$ 2,118k (2019 - CAD$ 2,706k) of non-recurrent expenses which relate to the cost of raising funds, negotiation for potential acquisition of producing assets and the share based payments costs, which is a non-cash item.

3.      Business combinations

 

On May 5, 2020, the Company announced it had successfully completed the acquisition of a 100 percent interest in Anglo African Oil & Gas Congo S.A.U ("AAOG Congo") from AIM listed Anglo African Oil & Gas plc (the "Seller"). At the time of the acquisition, AAOG Congo had a 56 percent majority interest in, and was the operator of, the Tilapia oilfield in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

 

As previously announced on   April 17, 2020, the Company had entered into a conditional deed of variation to vary the terms of a share purchase agreement with AAOG for the acquisition of a  100  per cent   interest in AAOG Congo and related intercompany loans (the "Acquisition") for a revised total consideration of £200,000 ("Consideration").

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Acquisition, the Seller novated 100% of the intercompany loans with AAOG Congo, thereby transferring all its rights and obligations relating to these intercompany loans, to Zenith as of the date of Completion, equivalent to approximately £12.5 million. As a result, this credit balance has been transferred to Zenith's balance sheet.

 

The Business Combinations outlines the accounting process to be followed when an acquirer obtains control of a business. Such business combinations are accounted for using the 'acquisition method', which generally requires assets acquired and liabilities assumed to be measured at their fair values at the acquisition date.

 

The Company has engaged a Big 4 accounting firm to perform a Purchase Price allocation exercise ("PPA") in respect of the acquisition of Anglo African Oil & Gas Congo S.A.U ("AAOG Congo").

 

Zenith can also confirm that it has engaged PKF LittleJohn to perform an ISRE 2410 review on the interim financial statements for the six months ended September 30, 2020.

 

This number may change as a result of the above reviews and would also be impacted in the event that Zenith did not receive a new license in relation to the oil and gas assets owned by AAOG Congo at the time of the acquisition.

Impairment test for property, plant and equipment

As of March 31, 2020, a review was undertaken of the carrying amounts of property, plant and equipment to determine whether there was any indication of a trigger that may have led to these assets suffering an impairment loss. Following this review impairment triggers were noted in relation to the Azerbaijan assets due to the carrying amount of the Group net assets exceeding the Company's market capitalization and also the Group encountered some operational difficulty with well workovers which led to lower than expected production levels compared to forecasts for the same period.

As there is no readily available market for the Group's oil and gas properties, fair value is derived as the net present value of the estimated future cash flows arising from the continued use of the assets, incorporating assumptions that a typical market participant would take into account. The value in use of an oil and gas property is generally lower than its Fair Value Less Costs of Disposal ('FVLCD') as value in use reflects only those cash flows expected to be derived from the asset in its current condition. FVLCD includes appraisal and development expenditure that a market participant would consider likely to enhance the productive capacity of an asset and optimize future cash flows. Consequently, the Group determines recoverable amount based on FVLCD using a Discounted Cash Flow ('DCF') methodology.

The DCF was derived by estimating discounted after-tax cash flows for each CGU based on estimates that a typical market participant would use in valuing such assets. The impairment tests compared the recoverable amount of the respective CGUs noted below to the respective carrying values of their associated assets. The estimates of FVLCD meet the definition of level three fair value measurements as they are determined from unobservable inputs.

Italian Cash Generating Unit

Key assumptions:

·    Production profiles: these were based on the latest available information from management.

·    Capital and operating costs: these were based on the current operating and capital costs in Italy.

·    Gas price: An average 2020 gas price of $4.944/Mscf based on information from the World Bank European gas price forecast and information provided by management.

·    Discount rate: The estimated fair value less costs to sell of the Italian CGU was based on 15% (2019 - 15%). This was based on a Weighted Average Cost of Capital analysis consistent with that used in previous impairment reviews.

 

Based on the key assumptions set out above:

·    The estimated recoverable amount of the Italian CGU on March 31, 2020 was higher than its carrying amount by CAD$8m, therefore, no impairment was recognized in the year ended March 31, 2020 (2019 - CAD $nil) in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

 

Congo Cash Generating Unit

The assets in the Congo CGU were transferred to the group on 20 January 2020.  As of the date of these financial statements no impairment review has been carried out because the assets have been in the group for less than three months.  An impairment review will be undertaken in the next financial year.

 

 

8.      Inventory

 

As of March 31, 2020, inventory consists of CAD $14 (2019 - CAD $nil) of crude oil that has been produced but not yet sold, and CAD $785k of materials (2019 - CAD $156k). The amount of inventory recognised in the statement of comprehensive income is CAD $167k (2019 - CAD $220k).

The Group applies the IFRS 9 simplified approach to measuring expected credit losses using a lifetime expected credit loss provision for trade receivables. To measure expected credit losses on a collective basis, trade receivables are grouped based on similar credit risk and ageing. The Group's customer base is of a similar bracket and share the same characteristics, as such these have been treated as one population. The Group's customers are all State customers, therefore, the lifetime expected losses are considered to be CAD$ nil.

Options

 

The Group has a stock options plan (the "Plan") for its directors, employees and consultants. The maximum number of shares available under the Plan is limited to 10% of the issued and outstanding common shares at the time of granting options. Granted options are fully vested on the date of grant, at which time all related share‐based payment expense is recognized in the consolidated statements of income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss). Share options expire five years from the date of granting.

 

As at March 31, 2020, the Group had 9,085,225 stock options outstanding (relating to 9,085,225 shares) and exercisable at a weighted average exercise price shown on the table above per share with a weighted average life remaining of 2.73 years.

The fair value of the options was calculated using the Black-Scholes pricing model calculations based on the following significant assumptions:

 

Risk-free interest rate

0.50% - 0.70%

Expected volatility

100%

Expected life

(a)  Loan Notes

 

To avoid the risk of the excessive dilution of the capital, the Company issued two different sets of EMTN (Bond) accruing interest payable semi-annually and listed on European Stock Exchanges.

a.    Zenith 8% EMTN - ISIN   AT0000A23S79

During the financial year 2019, as announced in September 2018 and January 2019, the Company issued Loan Notes to finance its development activities in Azerbaijan for a total amount of CAD$4,759k, with the duration of 2 years.

During the financial year ended March 21, 2020, the Company issued additional loan Notes for a total amount of CAD$9.8M.

The maturity date of the Notes is 20 December 2021, and they carry an interest charge of 8% per annum, payable upon the maturity of 20 December 2021.

b.    Zenith EMTN Programme up to Euro 25M

On January 20, 2020, the Company announced the issuance of the following unsecured, multi-currency Euro Medium Term Notes at par value (the "Notes"):

•             EURO 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.125 per cent per year

•             GBP 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.50 per cent per year

•             USD 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.375 per cent per year

•             CHF 1,000,000 bearing an interest of 10.00 per cent per year

 

The Notes, as announced by the Company on November 6, 2019 (https://www.zenithenergy.ca/investors/at-prospectus/), are due on January 27, 2024. The Notes are admitted to trading on the Third Market (MTF) of the Vienna Stock Exchange ("Wiener Borse AG").

 

The Notes are governed by Austrian law and, since the Notes are not convertible into equity of Zenith.

 

The issue of the Notes is aligned with the Company's strategy of diversifying its financing towards non-equity dilutive funding to support its successful development.

 

The EMTN Programme was carried out primarily with the purpose of financing the Company's development activities in Azerbaijan (financing of the 1,200hp drilling rig and a new well). The Company chose the Vienna Stock Exchange because it was considered the most accessible market in terms of simplicity of process and listing costs. The currently available amount for the drawing under the Programme is intended to be used for the development of the Company's activities in Congo, Tunisia and Italy.

c.     Revolving credit facility

                On October 18, 2019, the Company entered into a revolving credit line facility for the total amount of Euro 200,000 (CAD$294k) for a duration of 18 months. The facility is secured by a corresponding EMTN Zenith 8%, 2021 value.

d.    Accounting situation as of March 31, 2020

At the year ended March 31, 2020, CAD$82k (March 31, 2019 - CAD$14k) is classified as a current liability and CAD$18,505k (March 31, 2019 - CAD$4,759k) is classified as long-term

 

 

16.   Loss from discontinued operations (unaudited)

 

On March 2, 2020, the Company announced that it would return the Contract Rehabilitation Area ("CRA") to SOCAR (the "Handover") and that it would continue to operate the CRA and maintain oil production activities in Azerbaijan without interruption until the Handover was completed. The Company stated it would achieve a near total reduction of operating expenses in Azerbaijan upon completion of the handover of the CRA, which was effectively completed in June 2020.

 

As a result of the Handover, all production infrastructure and employees associated with the CRA were transferred to a division of SOCAR. As per the REDPSA agreement with SOCAR, Zenith is not liable for any kind of compensation fee as a result of the termination thereof. In addition, there are no decommissioning fees to be borne by Zenith, whereas its Azerbaijan subsidiary has recently received a payment for oil production of approximately US$508,000 from SOCAR corresponding to material revenues for the months of April, May and part of June 2020.

 

The unaudited results of the subsidiary in Azerbaijan have been included in the loss from discontinued operations in the statement of comprehensive income and they are comprised as follows:

The provision has been made by estimating the decommissioning costs at current prices using existing technology. The following significant weighted average assumptions were used to estimate the decommissioning obligation:

The timings of the cash flows depend on the capital expenditure incurred and the development of assets in each concession.  Each concession has a license for a set number of years; however, the licenses could be extended for longer periods if the operator incurs capital expenditure and develops the area. The application process starts after a license is not extended or when the reserves of a particular concession have been fully extracted.

(1)      The Group did not have any in-the-money convertible notes, warrants and stock options during the years ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. The effect of convertible notes, warrants and stock options is anti-dilutive in loss periods.

The basic and diluted loss per share for 2020 are the same as there are no dilutive effects on earnings as the effect of the exercise of share options would be to decrease the earnings per share. Details of share warrants and options that could potentially dilute earnings per share in future years are set out in Note 15.

Zenith finances its operations through a mixture of equity, debt and retained earnings. Finance requirements are reviewed by the Board when funds are required for acquisition, exploration and development of projects.

 

Zenith's policy is to maintain an appropriate financial position to sustain future development of the business. There were no changes to the Group's capital management approach during the year ended March 31, 2020.

 

Zenith's treasury functions, which are managed by the board, are responsible for managing fund requirements and investments which include banking, cash flow management, interest and foreign exchange exposure to ensure adequate liquidity to meet cash requirements.

 

Zenith's principal financial instruments are cash and deposits, and also trade and other receivables. These instruments are used for meeting the Group's requirement for operations.

 

Zenith's main financial risks are foreign currency risk, liquidity risk, interest rate risk, commodity price risk and credit risks. Set out below are policies that are used to manage such risks:

 

 

 

 

a)  Credit risk

 

Credit risk is the risk of an unexpected loss if a customer or counter party to a financial instrument fails to meet its commercial obligations. The Group's maximum credit risk exposure is limited to the carrying amount cash of CAD $1,226k (2019 - CAD $3,058k) and trade and other receivables of CAD $30,902k (2019 - CAD $5,248k).

 

Deposits are, as a general rule, placed with banks and financial institutions that have credit rating of not less than AA or equivalent which are verified before placing the deposits.

 

The composition of trade and other receivables is summarised in the following table:

The receivables related to the sale of oil and natural gas are due from large companies who participate in the oil and natural gas industry in Argentina and Italy. Oil and natural gas sales receivables are typically collected in the month following the sales month.

 

  The Group considers its receivables to be aged as follows:

b)  Liquidity risk

 

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Group will incur difficulties meeting its financial obligations as they are due. The Group's approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due, under both normal and distressed conditions without incurring unacceptable losses or risking harm to the Group's reputation.

 

The Directors have considered the recoverability of the outstanding debts of the Group and do not consider there to be any impairment necessary.

22.   Operating segments

 

The Group's operations are conducted in one business sector, the oil and natural gas industry. Geographical areas are used to identify Group's reportable segments. A geographic segment is considered a reportable segment once its activities are regularly reviewed by the Board of the Directors.

 

The Group has three reportable segments which are as follows:

 

·    Italy, which commenced gas operations following the acquisition of assets in June 2013;

·    The Republic of the Congo, which was acquired during the 2020 FY

·    Other, which includes corporate assets and the operations in the Canadian, Swiss,  Argentinian and Norwegian entities.

Azerbaijan, which was acquired during the FY 2017 and divested during FY 2020, is mentioned only for comparative purposes with the past financial year. The unaudited results for Azerbaijan as of March 31, 2020 are included in the "Discontinued Operations" (section 16).
