A LL RI G TH S B ELO N G T O FU S I O N - FU EL 02 — FINA NC I A L REVIEW 1 Revenues for 1Q 2021 are related with the supply of custom - made components to our production partner MagP, S.A. for further processing and production of the HEVO - SOLAR units. This supply is valued at cost of acquisition. 2 In accordance with IFRS 2, the merger is not considered a business combination, but rather as the equivalent of Fusion Fuel issuing shares for the net assets of HL Acquisitions, accompanied by a recapitalization. Because HL Acquisitions is not considered a business, its net assets, mostly cash, are recorded at historical cost with no goodwill or other intangible assets recognized, while the shares issued by the Company to acquire HL Acquisitions are recorded at the fair value of the equity instruments issued. Operations prior to the business combination are those of Fusion Fuel Portugal. The fair value of the Fusion Fuel equity instruments issued to acquire HL Acquisitions is calculated by reference to the market value of the HL equity as of the date of the HL shareholder vote on December 4, 2020. As per IFRS 2, the excess of the value of the equity instruments issued over the net assets of HL Acquisitions (incl. the PIPE) of EUR 177m does not qualify as an intangible asset and is considered to be the cost of listing Fusion Fuel’s shares and is reflected as Listing expenses on Fusion Fuel’s income statement. A detailed breakdown of the listing expenses can be found in the Financial Commentary in the 20 - F section of the 2020 annual report. 3 As part of the merger outlined in 2 above, the Company agreed to a potential additional equity payment to certain former shareholders of Fusion Fuel who became employees of and service providers to the Company. As these awards are dependent on future service being provided to the Company, the Company considers them to be service awards under IFRS 2 and classifies both the expected share and warrant awards in equity with a corresponding compensation expense in the income statement. The shares and warrants expected to be awarded are estimated and measured at grant - date fair value and attributed to the income statement on a straight - line basis from the period from grant to expiration on June 30, 2022. This is a non - cash expense. 4 Derivatives are initially recognized at their fair value on the date the derivative contract and transaction costs are expensed to profit or loss. Warrants are subsequently re - measured at fair value at each reporting date with changes in fair value recognized in profit or loss. The fair value of the tradeable warrants is determined with reference to the prevailing market price for warrants that are trading on the NASDAQ under the ticker HTOOW. The fair value of non - tradeable warrants is determined with reference to the market value of the traded warrants, adjusted for an illiquidity discount of 5%.
