The Management Board of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa S.A.(“Company”, “JSW”) hereby reports that today it adopted a resolution on recognizing an additional impairment loss on non-current assets in the coal segment in the amount of PLN 164.0 million, to be charged to the Company’s profit and loss account for Q2 2022.
In accordance with the provisions of IAS 36 “Impairment of assets”, an analysis of indications of impairment has been carried out, as a result of which it has been concluded that there are no new indications which would suggest the possibility of impairment nor has it been found that the indications identified in previous periods as a result of which impairment losses had been established ceased to exist.
At the same time, due to the fact that the discounted cash flows generated by the cash generation unit, i.e. the “Jastrzębie-Bzie” Coal Mine (“CGU”), are negative and that the CGU’s recoverable amount is zero, and in consideration of the impairment loss on the CGU’s assets recognized in previous periods and the increase in the CGU’s assets as at 30 June 2022, it became necessary to recognize an additional impairment loss on non-current assets in the coal segment.
The recognition of the above impairment loss will reduce the operating result of JSW and the JSW Group but will not impact their liquidity position. The final value of the impairment loss will be presented in the standalone and consolidated financial statements of JSW and the JSW Group, respectively, for the 6-month period ended 30 June 2022.
Please be advised that the above figure of the impairment loss is an estimate and is subject to change.
