2. Significant accounting policies
v. Convertible notes
Convertible notes that do not contain an equity
component are accounted for as follows:
At initial recognition the derivative component of the
convertible notes is measured at fair value and presented
as part of derivative financial instruments (see Note 2(w)).
Any excess of proceeds over the amount initially
recognised as the derivative component is recognised
as the liability component. Transaction costs that relate
to the issue of the convertible note are allocated to the
liability and derivative components in proportion to the
allocation of proceeds. The portion of the transaction
costs relating to the liability component is recognised
initially as part of the liability. The portion relating to
the derivative component is recognised immediately
in profit or loss.
The derivative component is subsequently re-measured
in accordance with Note 2(w). The liability component
is subsequently carried at amortised cost. The interest
expense recognised in profit or loss on the liability
component is calculated using the effective interest
If the note is converted, the carrying amounts of the
derivative and liability components are transferred to
share capital as consideration for the shares issued.
If the note is redeemed, any difference between
the amount paid and the carrying amounts of both
components is recognised in profit or loss.
w. Derivative financial instruments
Derivative financial instruments are recognised initially
at fair value. At the end of each reporting period the
fair value is re-measured. The gain or loss on re-
measurement to fair value is recognised immediately in
profit or loss.
x. New accounting standards for application in
Accounting Standards and Interpretations issued by
the AASB that are not yet mandatorily applicable to the
company, together with an assessment of the potential
impact of such pronouncements on the company when
adopted in future periods, are discussed below:
AASB 9: Financial Instruments and associated
Amending Standards (applicable to annual reporting
periods commencing on or after 1 January 2018).
The Standard will be applicable retrospectively (subject to
the provisions on hedge accounting outlined below) and
includes revised requirements for the classification and
measurement of financial instruments, revised recognition
and derecognition requirements for financial instruments,
and simplified requirements for hedge accounting.
The key changes that may affect the company on
initial application include certain simplifications to
the classification of financial assets, simplifications
to the accounting of embedded derivatives, upfront
accounting for expected credit loss, and the irrevocable
election to recognise gains and losses on investments
in equity instruments that are not held for trading in
other comprehensive income. AASB 9 also introduces a
new model for hedge accounting that will allow greater
flexibility in the ability to hedge risk, particularly with
respect to hedges of non-financial items. Should the
entity elect to change its hedge policies in line with the
new hedge accounting requirements of this Standard,
the application of such accounting would be largely
Although the directors anticipate that the adoption of
AASB 9 may have an impact on the company’s financial
instruments, including hedging activity, it is impracticable
at this stage to provide a reasonable estimate of such
AASB 15: Revenue from Contracts with Customers
(applicable to annual reporting periods commencing on
or after 1 January 2018).
When effective, this Standard will replace the current
accounting requirements applicable to revenue with a
single, principles-based model.
Except for a limited number of exceptions, including
leases, the new revenue model in AASB 15 will apply to
all contracts with customers as well as non-monetary
exchanges between entities in the same line of business
to facilitate sales to customers and potential customers.
The core principle of the Standard is that an entity will
recognise revenue to depict the transfer of promised
goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects
the consideration to which the entity expects to be
entitled in exchange for the goods or services.
To achieve this objective, AASB 15 provides the following
Identify the contract(s) with a customer
identify the performance obligations in the contract(s)
Determine the transaction price
allocate the transaction price to the performance
obligations in the contract(s); and
recognise revenue when (or as) the performance
obligations are satisfied.
This Standard will require retrospective restatement,
as well as enhanced disclosures regarding Revenue.
