Adoption of IFRS 16 Leases from 1 January 2019 benefits EBITDA with the removal of $4.6m of lease costs at the half year point. On a like-for-like basis EBITDA is in line with H1 2018. Prior period financials have not been restated for IFRS 16, as the standard is being adopted with effect from 1 January 2019. Additional depreciation of $4.0m in the half year is charged to the income statement on the capitalised lease assets and accordingly operating profit benefits by a net $0.6m at the half year point. Additional finance charges of $1.1m are recognised in the half year results and result in a net $0.5m deterioration in profit before tax from the adoption of IFRS 16. The balance sheet as at 30 June 2019 now reflects capitalised right-of-use assets of $39.6m and $47.1m of lease liabilities.
