General information

HELLENIC PETROLEUM Holdings S.A. (“the Company or “HELLENIC PETROLEUM”) is the parent company of HELLENIC PETROLEUM Group (the “Group”). On 3rd January 2022, a new corporate structure was completed by way of a hive-down of its refining, supply and trading of oil products and petrochemicals sector from HELLENIC PETROLEUM to a new established company (Note 38). As part of the hive-down, the parent company changed its name from “HELLENIC PETROLEUM S.A.” to “HELLENIC PETROLEUM Holdings S.A.. The Group operates in the energy sector predominantly in Greece, as well as in the wider South Eastern Europe / East Mediterranean region. The Group’s activities include refining and marketing of oil products, production and marketing of petrochemical products and electricity generation through renewable energy sources. The Group is also active in exploration for hydrocarbons and provides engineering services. Through its investments in DEPA Commercial, DEPA International Projects and Elpedison B.V., the Group also operates in the natural gas sector and in electricity generation (through gas-fired units) and trading.

The parent company is incorporated in Greece with an indefinite corporate life and the address of its registered office is 8A Chimarras Str., Marousi, 151 25. The shares of the Company are listed on the Athens Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange through GDRs.

The consolidated financial statements of HELLENIC PETROLEUM Holdings S.A. for the year ended 31 December 2021 were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors on 24 February 2022. The shareholders of the Company have the power to amend the financial statements after their issuance.

Summary of significant accounting policies

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements are set out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented unless otherwise stated.

2.1

Basis of preparation

These consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2021 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”), as endorsed by the European Union (“EU”), and present the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Group on a going concern basis.

In determining the appropriate basis of preparation of the consolidated financial statements, the Directors are required to consider whether the Group can continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.

The Group’s business activities, together with factors which the Directors consider are likely to affect its development, financial performance and financial position are set out in the Director’s report. The most significant financial and operational risks and uncertainties that may have an impact upon the Group’s

13

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

performance and their mitigation are outlined in Note 3 including liquidity risk, market risk, credit risk and capital risk to these consolidated financial statements.

At 31 December 2021, the Group held cash of €1.053 million and has a positive operating working capital position. Its total loans and borrowings amount to €2.991 million, €2.413 million relate to committed term facilities and €578 million to uncommitted short-term revolving facilities on demand. Of its total borrowings, an amount of €894 million of term loans and €578 million to uncommitted short-term revolving facilities fall due within the next 12 months.  Details of these balances and their maturities are presented in Note 18.

Management expects that all committed borrowings maturing within the next 12 months will be refinanced with similar terms and will commence discussions in the near term with the respective lenders to extend or refinance the maturing facilities and is confident that such discussions will conclude successfully. Moreover, as part of its long term funding strategy, Management is able to raise funds from debt capital markets through the issuance of listed bonds. Should further funding be required, the Group can draw from committed term facilities limits €180 million without further approvals as well as from uncommitted facilities €372 million, subject to approvals from the respective financial institutions. Based on their assessment, taking into account the above and also their financial forecasts over the next 18 months, Management is satisfied that the Group has sufficient liquidity to meet its current liabilities and working capital requirements.

The future financial performance of the Group is dependent upon the wider economic environment in which it operates. The factors that particularly affect the performance of the Group include economic growth and pace of recovery post pandemic, energy transition and impact on natural gas and electricity pricing, as well as associated compliance costs, which together will affect the demand for fuels and benchmark refining margins which is a key determinant of profitability, as well as operating expenditure.

Covid-19 continues to heighten the inherent uncertainty in the Group’s assessment of these factors. In particular, risks to economic growth persist principally from the potential impact that potential         Covid-19 variants may have on   economic activity. Further risks to economic recovery may inter-alia arise from, rising inflation and monetary policies implemented by central banks impacting interest and exchange rates expectations, prolongation of global supply issues and the European energy crisis. Nevertheless, the roll out of the mass vaccination schemes launched by governments during 2021 positively affected the severity of infections in terms of hospitalizations and symptoms experienced; consequently worldwide restrictions to mobility have been relaxed to a large extent with some governments lifting the entirety of restrictions in early 2022. Equally, worldwide economic recovery accelerated particularly in the second half of 2021 and is forecasted to continue in 2022. The increase in economic activity positively impacted demand for fuels and benchmark margins. Conversely the higher demand for energy, particularly in Europe, is considered a key factor for the increase in the price of natural gas, electricity and the cost of CO2 emissions rights which are significant cost components in the refining process.

The Group’s financial forecasts were modelled over an 18-month period, ending 30 June 2023 and reflect the outcomes that the Directors consider most likely, based on the information available at the date of signing of these consolidated financial statements. This includes the expectation of demand evolution, benchmark refining margins and associated costs applicable to the Group. The Group

14

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

financial forecasts have been prepared with consideration to independent third-party data which inter-alia include forecasted international commodity prices used in the calculation of benchmarks refining margins, demand evolution and operating costs. In the 18-month period assessed and considering successful refinancing of maturing debt obligations, the Group expects to generate sufficient cash from operations to meet all its operating liabilities as they fall due and planned investments. Further details on the Group’s actions for financing of operations are included in Note 3.

Taking into account the above in their assessment, Management has excercised judgement and concluded that, at the time of approving the consolidated financial statements there is a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future, being at least 12 months from the date of approval of these consolidated financial statements.

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the historical cost basis, except for the following:

financial instruments – some of which are measured at fair value (Note 3.3 & 24)
defined benefit pension plans – plan assets measured at fair value
assets held for sale – measured at the lower of carrying value and fair value less cost to sell

The preparation of financial statements, in accordance with IFRS, requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates and assumptions. It also requires management to exercise its judgment in the process of applying the Group’s accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgment or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the consolidated financial statements are disclosed in “Note 4: Critical accounting estimates and judgements”. Estimates and judgements are continuously evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events as assessed to be reasonable under the present circumstances.  

2.1.1

New standards, amendments to standards and interpretations

New and amended standards adopted by the Group.

The accounting principles and calculations used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020 and have been consistently applied in all periods presented in this report except for the following IFRS amendments, which have been adopted by the Group as of 1 January 2021. The Group applied, the IFRS Interpretation Committee's Agenda Decision issued on May 2021 for IAS 19 Employee benefits - Attributing Benefit to Periods of Service and disclosed below (Note 21), the nature and effect of these changes. Several other amendments and interpretations applied for the first time in 2021 but did not have a significant impact on the consolidated financial statements of the Group for the year ended 31 December 2021.

IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7, IFRS 4 and IFRS 16 (Amendments) ‘Interest rate benchmark reform – Phase 2’. In August 2020, the IASB published Interest Rate Benchmark Reform – Phase 2, Amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7, IFRS 4 and IFRS 16, completing its work in response to IBOR reform. The amendments provide temporary reliefs which address the financial reporting effects when an interbank offered rate (IBOR) is replaced with an alternative nearly risk-free interest rate (RFR). In

15

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

particular, the amendments provide for a practical expedient when accounting for changes in the basis for determining the contractual cash flows of financial assets and liabilities, to require the effective interest rate to be adjusted, equivalent to a movement in a market rate of interest. Also, the amendments introduce reliefs from discontinuing hedge relationships including a temporary relief from having to meet the separately identifiable requirement when an RFR instrument is designated as a hedge of a risk component. There are also amendments to IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures to enable users of financial statements to understand the effect of interest rate benchmark reform on an entity’s financial instruments and risk management strategy. While application is retrospective, an entity is not required to restate prior periods.

IFRS 16 (Amendment) ‘Covid-19-Related Rent Concessions’: The amendment applies, retrospectively, to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 June 2020. Earlier application is permitted, including in financial statements not yet authorized for issue at 28 May 2020. IASB amended the standard to provide relief to lessees from applying IFRS 16 guidance on lease modification accounting for rent concessions arising as a direct consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. The amendment provides a practical expedient for the lessee to account for any change in lease payments resulting from the Covid-19 related rent concession the same way it would account for the change under IFRS 16, if the change was not a lease modification, only if all of the following conditions are met:

ØThe change in lease payments results in revised consideration for the lease that is substantially the same as, or less than, the consideration for the lease immediately preceding the change.
ØAny reduction in lease payments affects only payments originally due on or before 30 June 2021.
ØThere is no substantive change to other terms and conditions of the lease.

Attributing Benefit to Periods of Service (IAS 19 Employee Benefits) – IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRS IC or IFRIC) Agenda Decision issued May 2021: The International Financial Reporting Standards Interpretations Committee issued a final agenda decision in May 2021, under the title "Attributing Benefits to Periods of Service" (IAS 19), which includes explanatory material regarding the attribution of benefits in periods of service regarding a specific defined benefit plan analogous to that defined in Article 8 of Greek Law 3198/1955 regarding provision of compensation due to retirement (the "Labor Law Defined Benefit Plan"). This explanatory information differentiates the way in which the basic principles and regulations of IAS 19 have been applied in Greece in the previous years, and therefore, according to what is defined in the “IASB Due Process Handbook (par 8.6)”, entities that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS are required to amend their Accounting Policy accordingly. Based on the above, the aforementioned decision is implemented as a change in accounting policy. The impact of the change is disclosed in detail in Note 21.

Standards issued but not yet effective and not early adopted

The Group has not early adopted any other of the following standard, interpretation or amendment that has been issued but is not yet effective. In addition, the Group is in the process of assessing the impact of all standards, interpretations and amendments issued but not yet effective, on the consolidated financial statements.

IFRS 10 (Amendment) Consolidated Financial Statements and IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures: Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture: The amendments address an acknowledged inconsistency between the requirements in IFRS 10 and those in IAS 28, in dealing with the sale or contribution of assets between an investor and its associate or joint venture. The main consequence of the amendments is that a full gain or loss is recognized when a transaction involves a business (whether it is housed in a subsidiary or not). A partial gain or loss is recognized when a transaction involves assets that do not constitute a business, even if these assets are housed in a subsidiary. In December 2015 the IASB postponed the effective date of this amendment indefinitely pending the outcome of its research project on the equity method of accounting. The amendments have not yet been endorsed by the EU.
IFRS 3 Business Combinations; IAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment; IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets as well as Annual Improvements 2018-2020 (Amendments): The amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2022 with earlier application permitted. The IASB has issued narrow-scope amendments to the IFRS Standards as follows:
ØIFRS 3 Business Combinations (Amendments) update a reference in IFRS 3 to the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting without changing the accounting requirements for business combinations.
ØIAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment (Amendments) prohibit a company from deducting from the cost of property, plant and equipment amounts received from selling items produced while the company is preparing the asset for its intended use. Instead, a company will recognise such sales proceeds and related cost in profit or loss.
ØIAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets (Amendments) specify which costs a company includes in determining the cost of fulfilling a contract for the purpose of assessing whether a contract is onerous.
ØAnnual Improvements 2018-2020 make minor amendments to IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, IAS 41 Agriculture and the Illustrative Examples accompanying IFRS 16 Leases.

IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements and IFRS Practice Statement 2, Disclosure of Accounting policies (Amendments): The Amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2023 with earlier application permitted. The amendments provide guidance on the application of materiality judgements to accounting policy disclosures. In particular, the amendments to IAS 1 replace the requirement to disclose ‘significant’ accounting policies with a requirement to disclose ‘material’ accounting policies. Also, guidance and illustrative examples are added in the Practice Statement to assist in the application of the materiality concept when making

17

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

judgements about accounting policy disclosures. The Amendments have not yet been endorsed by the EU.
IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements: Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-current (Amendments): The amendments were initially effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2022 with earlier application permitted. However, in response to the covid-19 pandemic, the Board has deferred the effective date by one year, i.e. 1 January 2023, to provide companies with more time to implement any classification changes resulting from the amendments. The amendments aim to promote consistency in applying the requirements by helping companies determine whether, in the statement of financial position, debt and other liabilities with an uncertain settlement date should be classified as current or non-current. The amendments affect the presentation of liabilities in the statement of financial position and do not change existing requirements around measurement or timing of recognition of any asset, liability, income or expenses, nor the information that entities disclose about those items. Also, the amendments clarify the classification requirements for debt which may be settled by the company issuing own equity instruments.

In November 2021, the Board issued an exposure draft (ED), which clarifies how to treat liabilities that are subject to covenants to be complied with, at a date subsequent to the reporting period. In particular, the Board proposes narrow scope amendments to IAS 1 which effectively reverse the 2020 amendments requiring entities to classify as current, liabilities subject to covenants that must only be complied with within the next twelve months after the reporting period, if those covenants are not met at the end of the reporting period. Instead, the proposals would require entities to present separately all non-current liabilities subject to covenants to be complied with only within twelve months after the reporting period. Furthermore, if entities do not comply with such future covenants at the end of the reporting period, additional disclosures will be required. The proposals will become effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2024 and will need be applied retrospectively in accordance with IAS 8, while early adoption is permitted. The Board has also proposed to delay the effective date of the 2020 amendments accordingly, such that entities will not be required to change current practice before the proposed amendments come into effect. These Amendments, including ED proposals, have not yet been endorsed by the EU.

IAS 8 Accounting policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors: Definition of Accounting Estimates (Amendments): The amendments become effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2023 with earlier application permitted and apply to changes in accounting policies and changes in accounting estimates that occur on or after the start of that period. The amendments introduce a new definition of accounting estimates, defined as monetary amounts in financial statements that are subject to measurement uncertainty. Also, the amendments clarify what changes in accounting estimates are and how these differ from changes in accounting policies and corrections of errors. The Amendments have not yet been endorsed by the EU.
IAS 12 Income taxes: Deferred Tax related to Assets and Liabilities arising from a Single Transaction (Amendments): The amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2023 with earlier application permitted. In May 2021, the Board issued amendments to IAS 12, which narrow the scope of the initial recognition exception under IAS 12 and specify how companies should

18

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

account for deferred tax on transactions such as leases and decommissioning obligations. Under the amendments, the initial recognition exception does not apply to transactions that, on initial recognition, give rise to equal taxable and deductible temporary differences. It only applies if the recognition of a lease asset and lease liability (or decommissioning liability and decommissioning asset component) give rise to taxable and deductible temporary differences that are not equal. The Amendments have not yet been endorsed by the EU.
IFRS 16 ‘Leases-Cοvid 19 Related Rent Concessions beyond 30 June 2021 (Amendment)’: The Amendment applies to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 April 2021, with earlier application permitted, including in financial statements not yet authorized for issue at the date the amendment is issued. In March 2021, the Board amended the conditions of the practical expedient in IFRS 16 that provides relief to lessees from applying the IFRS 16 guidance on lease modifications to rent concessions arising as a direct consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. Following the amendment, the practical expedient now applies to rent concessions for which any reduction in lease payments affects only payments originally due on or before 30 June 2022, provided the other conditions for applying the practical expedient are met.

2.2

Basis of consolidation

(a) Subsidiaries

Subsidiaries are all entities (including structured entities) over which the Group has control. The Group controls an entity when the Group is exposed to or has rights to variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the entity.

At each reporting period, the Group reassesses whether it exercises control over the investees, in case there are facts and circumstances indicating a change in one of the control elements above. Subsidiaries are consolidated from the date on which effective control is transferred to the Group and cease to be consolidated from the date on which control is transferred out of the Group.

Inter-company transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions between Group companies are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated, unless there is objective evidence that the asset is impaired. Accounting policies of subsidiaries are changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

Non-controlling interests in the results and equity of subsidiaries are shown separately in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of financial position respectively.

19

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

(b) Changes in ownership interests in subsidiaries without change of control

Transactions with non-controlling interests that do not result in loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions – that is, as transactions with the owners in their capacity as owners. The difference between fair value of any consideration paid and the relevant share acquired of the carrying value of net assets of the subsidiary is recorded in equity. Gains or losses on disposals to non-controlling interests are also recorded in equity.

(c) Disposal of subsidiaries

When the Group ceases to have control over an entity, any retained interest in the entity is re-measured to its fair value at the date when control is lost, with the change in carrying amount recognised in profit or loss. The fair value is the initial carrying amount for the purposes of subsequently accounting for the retained interest as an associate, joint venture or financial asset. In addition, any amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income in respect of that entity are accounted for as if the Group had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. This may mean that amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss.

(d) Associates and Equity method

Associates are all entities over which the Group has significant influence but not control, generally accompanying a shareholding of between 20% and 50% of the voting rights. Investments in associates are accounted for using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, investments are initially recognised at cost and their carrying amount is increased or decreased to recognise the investor’s share of the profit or loss or share of other comprehensive income of the investee after the date of acquisition. The Group’s investment in associates includes goodwill identified on acquisition. Dividends received or receivable from associates and joint ventures are recognised as a reduction in the carrying amount of the investment.

If the ownership interest in an associate is reduced but significant influence is retained, only a proportionate share of the amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income is reclassified to profit or loss where appropriate.

The Group’s share of its associates’ post-acquisition profit or loss is recognised in the statement of comprehensive income, and its share of post-acquisition movements in other comprehensive income is recognised in other comprehensive income with a corresponding adjustment to the carrying amount of the investment. When the Group’s share of losses in an associate equals or exceeds its interest in the associate, the Group does not recognise further losses, unless it has incurred legal or constructive obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate.

The Group determines at each reporting date whether there is any objective evidence that the investment in the associate is impaired. If this is the case, the Group calculates the amount of impairment as the difference between the recoverable amount of the investment in the associate and its carrying value. The recoverable amount is the higher of the associate’s fair value less costs to sell and its value in use (discounted cash flows expected to be generated based upon management’s expectations of future economic and operating conditions).

20

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

Profits and losses resulting from upstream and downstream transactions between the Group and its associates are recognised in the Group’s financial statements only to the extent of unrelated investor’s interests in the associates. Unrealised losses are eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred. Accounting policies of associates are changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

(e) Joint arrangements

Investments in joint arrangements are classified as either joint operations or joint ventures depending on the contractual rights and obligations of each investor.

Joint ventures are accounted for using the equity method. Under the equity method of accounting, interests in joint ventures are initially recognised at cost and adjusted thereafter to recognise the Group’s share of the post-acquisition profits or losses and movements in other comprehensive income. When the Group’s share of losses in a joint venture equals or exceeds its interest in the joint ventures, the Group does not recognise further losses, unless it has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the joint venture. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its joint ventures are eliminated to the extent of the Group’s interest in the joint venture. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred. Accounting policies of joint ventures are changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

A joint operation arises where the Group has rights to the assets and obligations of the operation. The Group recognizes its share of the assets, obligations, revenue and expenses of the jointly controlled operation, including its share of those held or incurred jointly, in each respective line of its’ financial statements.

After application of the equity method, the Group determines whether it is necessary to recognise an impairment loss on its investment in  joint ventures. At each reporting date, the Group determines whether there is objective evidence that the investment in the joint venture is impaired. If there is such evidence, the Group calculates the amount of impairment as the difference between the recoverable amount of the joint venture and its carrying value, and then recognises the loss within ‘Share of profit/ (loss) of investments in associates and joint ventures’ in the statement of profit or loss.

2.3

Business combinations

The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for all business combinations, regardless of whether equity instruments or other assets are acquired. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the aggregate of the consideration transferred, measured at acquisition date fair value and the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree. For each business combination, the Group measures the non-controlling interest in the acquiree at the proportionate share of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets. Acquisition costs incurred are expensed.

The consideration transferred for the acquisition of a subsidiary is the total of the fair values of the assets transferred, the liabilities incurred to the former owners of the acquiree and the equity interests issued by the Group. The consideration transferred includes the fair value of any asset or liability resulting from a contingent consideration arrangement. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and

21

HELLENIC PETROLEUM HOLDINGS S.A.

Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS

for the year ended 31 December 2021

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date.

Where settlement of any part of cash consideration is deferred, the amounts payable in the future are discounted to their present value as at the date of acquisition. The discount rate used is the entity’s incremental borrowing rate, being the rate at which similar borrowing could be obtained from an independent financier under comparable terms and conditions.

Any contingent consideration to be transferred by the Group is recognised at fair value at the acquisition date and is classified either as equity or a financial liability. Amounts classified as a financial liability are subsequently remeasured to fair value with changes in fair value recognized in profit or loss, in accordance with the appropriate IFRS. Amounts classified as equity are not remeasured.

Goodwill (as disclosed in Note 2.10) is initially measured as the excess of the aggregate of the consideration transferred and the amount recognized for non-controlling interest and any previous interest held over the net identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed. If this consideration is lower than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, the Group reassesses whether it has correctly identified all of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed and reviews their measurement, before any remaining difference is recognised in profit or loss.

After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. For the purpose of impairment testing, goodwill acquired in a business combination is, from the acquisition date, allocated to each of the Group’s cash-generating units that are expected to benefit from the combination, irrespective of whether other assets or liabilities of the acquiree are assigned to those units.

For a transaction or event to be a business combination, the assets acquired and liabilities assumed over which the Group has obtained control are required to constitute a business.

A 'business' is an integrated set of activities and assets that is capable of being conducted and managed to provide goods or services to customers, generate investment income or generate other income from ordinary activities. A business generally consists of inputs, processes applied to those inputs and the ability to contribute to the creation of outputs. At a minimum, to be considered a business the acquired set is required to include an input and a substantive process that together significantly contribute to the ability to create outputs.

To be a business, the acquired set does not need to include all of the inputs and processes required to create outputs but it is required to be capable of being managed to create outputs.

If the group concludes that an entity acquired is in essence an asset acquisition, then no goodwill is recognised and the respective assets are recognised at cost, which is effectively the purchase price allocated to these assets.

2.4

Segment reporting

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The executive committee is the chief operating decision-maker, who makes strategic decisions and is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments. The executive committee is comprised of the Chief Executive Officer and eight General Managers of the Group. The Group’s key operating segments are disclosed in Note 5.

2.5

Foreign currency translation

(a) Functional and presentation currency

Items included in the financial statements of each of the Group’s entities are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates (the functional currency). The consolidated financial statements are presented in Euro, which is the parent entity’s functional currency and the presentation currency of the Group. Given that the Group’s primary activities are in oil refining and trading, in line with industry practices, most crude oil and oil product trading transactions are based on the international reference prices of crude oil and oil products in US Dollars. Depending on the country of operation, the Group translates this value to the local currency (Euro in most cases) at the time of any transaction.

(b) Transactions and balances

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at year-end exchange rates are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income. They are deferred in equity if they relate to qualifying cash flow hedges and qualifying net investment hedges.  

For transactions that include the receipt or payment of advance consideration in a foreign currency the date of the transaction, for the purpose of determining the exchange rate, is the date of initial recognition of the non-monetary prepayment asset or deferred income liability.

Foreign exchange gains and losses are presented in the same line as the transaction they relate to in the statement of comprehensive income, except those that relate to borrowings and cash, which are presented in a separate line (“Currency exchange gains/(losses)”).

Non-monetary items that are measured at fair value in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rates at the date when the fair value was determined. Translation differences on assets and liabilities carried at fair value are reported as part of the fair value gain or loss.

(c) Group companies

The results and financial position of all the Group entities that have a functional currency different from the presentation currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:

(i)assets and liabilities for each statement of financial position presented are translated at the closing rate at the date of that statement of financial position;

(ii)income and expenses for each statement of comprehensive income are translated at average exchange rates (unless this average is not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates prevailing on the transaction dates, in which case income and expenses are translated at the dates of the transactions); and
(iii)all resulting exchange differences are recognized in other comprehensive income.

On consolidation, exchange differences arising from the translation of the net investment in foreign operations are recognised in other comprehensive income. When a foreign operation is sold, exchange differences that were recorded in other comprehensive income are recycled to the profit or loss of the statement of comprehensive income.

Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of a foreign entity are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the closing rate. Exchange differences arising are recognised in other comprehensive income.

Assets held for sale

The Group classifies assets as held for sale if their carrying amounts will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. Assets classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of their carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell. Costs to sell are the incremental costs directly attributable to the disposal of an asset.

The criteria for held for sale classification is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the asset is available for immediate sale in its present condition. Actions required to complete the sale should indicate that it is unlikely that significant changes to the sale will be made or that the decision to sell will be withdrawn. Management must be committed to the plan to sell the asset and the sale expected to be completed within one year from the date of the classification.

Property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are not depreciated or amortised once classified as held for sale.

Upon the classification of investments in associates and joint ventures as assets held for sale, the equity method of accounting is discontinued from that point onwards.

Assets held for sale and their related liabilities are presented separately as current items in the statement of financial position.

2.7

Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment is comprised mainly of land, buildings, plant & machinery, transportation means and furniture and fixtures. Property, plant and equipment are shown at historical cost less accumulated depreciation. Historical cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the items.

Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Group and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced part is derecognised. Repairs and maintenance are charged to the profit or loss of the statement of comprehensive income as incurred. Refinery turnaround costs that take place periodically are capitalised and charged to profit or loss on a straight line basis until the next scheduled turnaround to

the extent that such costs either extend the useful economic life of the equipment or improve the capacity of its production.

Assets under construction are assets (mainly related to the refinery units) that are in the process of construction or development, and are carried at cost. Cost includes cost of construction, professional fees and other direct costs. Assets under construction are not depreciated, as the corresponding assets are not yet available for use.

Land is also not depreciated. Depreciation on assets is calculated using the straight-line method to allocate the cost of each asset to its residual value over its estimated useful economic life, as shown on the table below for the main classes of assets:

– Buildings (including petrol stations)

10 – 40 years

– Plant & Machinery

Specialised industrial installations and Machinery

10 – 35 years

Pipelines

Other equipment

3050 years

5 – 25 years

– Transportation means

LPG and white products carrier tank trucks

5 – 10 years

Other Motor Vehicles

4 – 10 years

Shipping Vessels

25 – 35 years

– Furniture and fixtures

Computer hardware

3 – 5 years

Other furniture and fixtures

4 – 10 years

Specialised industrial installations include refinery units, petrochemical plants, tank facilities and petrol stations.

The assets’ residual values and estimated useful economic lives are reviewed at the end of each reporting period and adjusted prospectively if appropriate.

If the asset’s carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount then it is written down immediately to its recoverable amount (Note 2.12).

The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets retired or sold are removed from the accounts at the time of sale or retirement and any gain or loss, which is determined by comparing the proceeds with the carrying amount, is included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income within “Other operating income / (expenses) and other gains / (losses)”.

Leases

2.8.1

Right-of-use assets

The Group recognizes right-of-use assets at the commencement date of the lease (i.e., the date the underlying asset is available for use). Right-of-use assets are measured at cost, less any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, and adjusted for any re-measurement of lease liabilities. The cost of right-of-use assets includes the amount of lease liabilities recognized, initial direct costs incurred, and lease payments made at or before the commencement date less any lease incentives received. Unless the Group is reasonably certain to obtain ownership of the leased asset at the end of the lease term, the recognized right-of-use assets are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the shorter of its estimated useful life and the lease term. Right-of-use assets are subject to impairment on their own or together with the Cash Generating Unit to which they belong.

2.8.2

Lease Liabilities

At the commencement date of the lease, the Group recognizes lease liabilities measured at the present value of lease payments to be made over the lease term. The lease payments include fixed payments (including in-substance fixed payments) less any lease incentives receivable, variable lease payments that depe
