AFRICAN DAWN 2015 Annual Report

Accounting Policies continued 1.3 Basis of consolidation (continued) AFRICAN DAWN 42 ANNUAL REPORT 2015 Contingent consideration Any contingent consideration to be transferred by the Group is recognised at fair value at the acquisition date. Subsequent changes to the fair value of the contingent consideration that is deemed to be a financial instrument is recognised in accordance with IAS 39 either in profit or loss or as a change to other comprehensive income. Contingent consideration that is classified as equity is not re-measured, and its subsequent settlement is accounted for within equity. Acquisition method The acquiree’s identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities that meet the conditions for recognition under IFRS 3 - Business Combinations are recognised at their fair value at the date of acquisition, except for: • Deferred taxation assets or liabilities, which are recognised and measured in accordance with IAS 12 - Income Taxes, and liabilities or assets related to employee benefit arrangements, which are recognised and measured in accordance with IAS 19 - Employee Benefits; • Liabilities or equity instruments that relate to the replacement, by the Group, of an acquiree’s share-based payment awards, which are measured in accordance with IFRS 2 - Share-based Payments; and • Assets (or disposal groups) that are classified as held for sale in accordance with IFRS 5 on-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, which are measured in accordance with that standard. Provisional accounting If the initial accounting for a business combination is incomplete by the end of the reporting period in which the combination occurs, the Group reports provisional amounts for the items for which the accounting is incomplete. Where provisional amounts were reported, these are adjusted during the measurement period (see below). Additional assets or liabilities are recognised to reflect any new information obtained about the facts and circumstances that existed at the date of acquisition, which, if known, would have affected the amounts recognised on that date. The measurement period is the period from the date of acquisition to the date the Group receives complete information about the facts and circumstances that existed at the acquisition date. This measurement period is subject to a maximum of one year after the acquisition date. Non-controlling interest The Group recognises any non-controlling interest in the acquiree on an acquisition-by-acquisition basis, either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest’s proportionate share of the recognised amounts of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets. Step acquisition If the business combination is achieved in stages, the acquisition date carrying value of the acquirer’s previously held equity interest in the acquiree is re-measured to fair value at the acquisition date. Any gains or losses arising from such re-measurement are recognised in profit or loss. 1.4 Goodwill Goodwill arises on the acquisition of subsidiaries, associates and joint arrangements. Goodwill is measured at cost less accumulated impairment losses. In respect of equity-accounted investments the carrying amount of goodwill is included in the carrying amount of the investment. Goodwill represents the excess of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the acquisition-date fair value of any previous equity interest in the acquiree over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired. If, after reassessment, the Group’s interest in the net fair value of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets exceeds the sum of the consideration transferred plus the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the fair value of the acquirer’s previously held equity interest (if any), this excess is recognised immediately in profit or loss as gain on bargain purchase.
