CLARIFICATION OF CHANGE STATEMENT
Shareholders of the Company (“Shareholders”) are referred to the Change Statement announcement issued on 1 July 2021 (“Change Statement”) wherein the Company provided details pertaining to the modification to the reviewed results for the year ended 29 February 2020, previously issued on 31 August 2020 (“Reviewed Results”), following the publication of the audited results for the year then ended (“Audited Results”) on 1 July 2021.
This announcement serves to clarify that in addition to the change highlighted in the Change Statement, the Audited Results also include an adverse opinion issued by the auditors of the Group, SizweNtsalubaGobodo Grant Thornton Inc. (“Auditors”) on the consolidated Audited Results of the Company, which is a change from the unmodified review conclusion which highlighted material uncertainties relating to going concern issued in the Reviewed Results. The Auditors expressed an unmodified opinion, with a material uncertainty relating to going concern, on the results of the Company which also form part of the Audited Results. The basis for the adverse opinion is that the consolidated Audited Results are prepared on a going concern basis which in the Auditors’ judgement is inappropriate. This Auditors’ opinion is available, along with the full set of annual financial statements, on the Company’s website at www.eforaenergy.com.
