Integrated Green Energy Solutions Ltd

As noted within the interim consolidated financial statements of TVI for the period ended March 31, 2018, IFRS 9, "Financial Instruments" became effective on January 1, 2018 and replaced previous requirements included in IAS 39, "Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement".  This has had the effect at March 31, 2018 of reporting TVI's investment in IGES through application of fair value through profit or loss.  As such, TVI recognized a gain of $6.6 million for the period ended March 31, 2018, through initial recognition of TVI's investment in IGES at fair value and a further $1.3 million from the revaluation of IGES options held, contributing to a total net income of $6.9 million for the period ended March 31, 2018.  TVI's investment in IGES had previously been fully written-down at September 30, 2017, as a result of recognizing TVI's proportionate share of IGES losses.

The fair value of TVI's investment in IGES at March 31, 2018 was calculated at the IGES share price of A$0.38 ($0.37) as at that date.  TVI's fair value of its investment in IGES may be expected to fluctuate from time to time based on the IGES share price as at the reporting date.  As at the date of this information update, the IGES share price is A$0.61 ($0.60), suggesting a fair value for TVI's investment in IGES of $10.2 million.  The fair value of TVI's investment is calculated on the remaining 16,822,908 IGES shares held by TVI following the divestment of 770,000 IGES shares since the January 30, 2018 relisting date of IGES, at an average share price of A$0.47 ($0.46) to generate net proceeds of approximately $348,250.  As at the date of this information update, TVI continues to hold a 4.94% equity interest in IGES.  TVI may continue to sell IGES shares, depending on market conditions, but will do so in such a way not to negatively influence the market – as it has done thus far.

In addition to IGES shares held, TVI continues to hold 9,158,621 options to purchase IGES shares with a conversion price of A$0.20 and expiry date of December 31, 2019.  Options to purchase IGES shares are also reported at fair value by TVI and for the period ended March 31, 2018 had a reported value of $2.0 million after consideration of conversion price and as calculated through the Black-Scholes model.  As at the date of this information update, the IGES share price is A$0.61 ($0.60), suggesting the fair value for options to purchase IGES shares held by TVI to be $3.9 million after consideration of conversion price.
