CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

I am pleased to report another strong set of interim results, for the six months ended 31 December 2019. These show revenues of GBP53.3m (2018: GBP50.0m) and a profit before taxation of GBP24.4m (2018: GBP18.8m) that included a profit from trading of GBP7.1m (2018: GBP6.2m). Period end net cash at bank was GBP32.9m (2018: GBP38.6m). The introductory page to these interim results summarises the main highlights.

Following the permanent appointment of Neil Lennon in May 2019 and the securing of an unprecedented "Treble-Treble", the Club entered the new season with optimism. Whilst we were disappointed not to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, Neil and the team quickly put this set back behind them and took on the challenge of a testing Europa League group. They performed with real distinction by winning the group with a match to spare, a first-time achievement, and defeating an Italian Club on its home soil which was also a first for Celtic in the current format of competitive European football. The Club went on to secure its tenth consecutive domestic trophy by defeating Rangers FC in the Betfred Cup Final in December 2019. As 2019 drew to a close the Club reflected on the most successful decade in its history, having won 18 trophies from a possible 30.

Whilst the financial results were absent of the enhanced income associated with Champions League Football for a second year, the overall financial performance improved. In addition to significant gains from player sales, the underlying trading remained buoyant through revenues from commercial arrangements, match day sales, hospitality and merchandising. The profit on disposal of intangible assets recognised in the period amounted to GBP23.0m (2018: GBP17.6m). A key contributor was the sale of Kieran Tierney to Arsenal FC. Our period end net cash at bank of GBP32.9m (2018: GBP38.6m).

Crucially, we continue to commit substantial funds to our football department. Salaries have increased over the same period last year and in the summer and winter transfer windows 2019/2020 we invested in ten new player registrations. During the period under review, we secured the permanent registrations of Christopher Jullien, Hatem Abd Elhamed, Boli Bolingoli, Greg Taylor, Jeremie Frimpong, Luca Connell, Lee O'Connor and Jonathan Afolabi as well as acquiring the temporary registrations of Fraser Forster, Moritz Bauer and Mohamed Elyounoussi. In addition, we extended the contracts of James Forrest, Callum McGregor, Nir Bitton, Michael Johnston and Scott Bain. In the January transfer window we subsequently acquired the permanent registrations of Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro. And we continued to supplement our first team by developing our own emerging talent, with Karamoko Dembele beginning to secure more first team appearances in recent months and Michael Johnston becoming a regular first team player.

At the time of writing, we sit at the top of the Scottish Premier League having secured 67 points which equates to 10 more than the same stage last season after 25 matches played. By almost all key footballing measures, performance has improved relative to the same period last year.

The Board is keenly aware of the inherent volatility that exists in football and continues to adopt the self-sustaining financial operating model that has delivered stability and the all-important objective of football success. We will continue to pursue this strategy, whilst balancing the key short term objectives of retaining the SPFL Premiership title, the Scottish Cup and advancing in Europe.

As in previous years, our trading seasonality dictates that the financial performance in the second half of the financial year ended June 2020 will most likely be lower than the first half, owing to playing less home matches and the expectation of receiving less distributions from UEFA competition.

Finally, on behalf of the Board I would like to reiterate to our supporters, shareholders and partners that their commitment is greatly appreciated and their contribution has been once again outstanding in helping to deliver continued success.

INDEPENT REVIEW REPORT TO CELTIC PLC

Introduction

We have been engaged by the Company to review the financial information in the interim report for the six months ended 31 December 2019 which comprises the consolidated statement of comprehensive income, the consolidated balance sheet, the consolidated statement of changes in equity, the consolidated cash flow statement and the related notes.

We have read the other information contained in the interim report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed set of financial statements.

Directors' responsibilities

The interim report, including the financial information contained therein, is the responsibility of and has been approved by the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the interim report in accordance with the rules of the London Stock Exchange for companies trading securities on AIM which require that the interim report be presented and prepared in a form consistent with that which will be adopted in the Company's annual financial statements having regard to the accounting standards applicable to such annual financial statements.

Our responsibility

Our responsibility is to express to the Company a conclusion on the financial information in the interim report based on our review.

Our report has been prepared in accordance with the terms of our engagement to assist the Company in meeting the requirements of the rules of the London Stock Exchange for companies trading securities on AIM and for no other purpose. No person is entitled to rely on this report unless such a person is a person entitled to rely upon this report by virtue of and for the purpose of our terms of engagement or has been expressly authorised to do so by our prior written consent. Save as above, we do not accept responsibility for this report to any other person or for any other purpose and we hereby expressly disclaim any and all such liability.

Scope of review

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity", issued by the Financial Reporting Council for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial information consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the financial information in the interim report for the six months ended 31 December 2019 is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the rules of the London Stock Exchange for companies trading securities on AIM.

Use of our report

Our report has been prepared in accordance with the terms of our engagement to assist the Company in meeting the requirements of the rules of the London Stock Exchange for companies trading securities on AIM and for no other purpose. No person is entitled to rely on this report unless such a person is a person entitled to rely upon this report by virtue of and for the purpose of our terms of engagement or has been expressly authorised to do so by our prior written consent. Save as above, we do not accept responsibility for this report to any other person or for any other purpose and we hereby expressly disclaim any and all such liability.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL INFORMATION

   1.      BASIS OF PREPARATION 

The financial information in this interim report comprises the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, Consolidated Balance Sheet, Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity, Consolidated Cash Flow Statement and accompanying notes. The financial information in this interim report has been prepared under the recognition and measurement requirements of IFRSs as adopted for use in the European Union but does not include all of the disclosures that would be required under those accounting standards. The accounting policies adopted in the financial information are consistent with those expected to be adopted in the Company's financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2020 and are unchanged from those used in the Company's annual report for the year ended 30 June 2019, except for the adoption of IFRS 16, which is described below.

The financial information in this interim report for the six months to 31 December 2019 and to 31 December 2018 has not been audited, but it has been reviewed by the Company's auditor, whose report is set out on page 4.

Adoption of standards effective for periods beginning 1 July 2019

The following standards have been adopted as of 1 July 2019:

IFRS 16 Leases

The Company has adopted IFRS 16 from 1 July 2019, using the modified retrospective transitional approach whereby comparative numbers are not restated. The reclassifications and the adjustments arising from the new leasing rules are therefore recognised in the opening balance sheet on 1 July 2019.

On adoption of IFRS 16, the Company recognised lease liabilities in relation to leases which had previously been classified as 'operating leases' under the principles of IAS 17 'Leases'. These liabilities were measured at the present value of the remaining lease payments, discounted using the Company's incremental borrowing rate as at 1 July 2019. The weighted average incremental borrowing rate applied to the lease liabilities at 1 July 2019 was 3.82%.

The Company has taken advantage of the following practical expedients upon transition:

-- A single discount rate to be applied to a portfolio of leases with reasonably similar characteristics, being 3.82%;

-- Reliance on its assessment of whether a lease is onerous by applying IAS 37 immediately before the date of initial application, which results in an onerous lease provision of GBP429k which is offset against the right of use asset;

-- Not recognise leases whose term ends within 12 months of the date of initial application; and

-- Exclude initial direct costs from the right of use assets at the date of initial application.

In terms of the above the overall impact to the financial statements on initial application are:

   --      Right of use assets (committed lease payments): GBP 1,859k 
   --      Onerous lease provision offset on the right of use assets: GBP429k 
   --      Lease liability: GBP1,859k 

The net impact on retained earnings on 1 July 2019 was GBPnil.

The Company's leasing activities

The Company leases various retail stores and cars. Rental contracts have varying lengths of fixed periods but may have extension options as described in (ii) below. Lease terms are negotiated on an individual basis and contain a wide range of different terms and conditions. The lease agreements do not impose any covenants, but leased assets may not be used as security for borrowing purposes.

Accounting approach

From 1 July 2019, leases are recognised as a right-of-use asset and a corresponding liability at the date at which the leased asset is available for use by the Company. Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance cost. The finance cost is charged to profit or loss over the lease period so as to produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability for each period. The right-of-use asset is depreciated over the shorter of the asset's useful life and the lease term on a straight-line basis.

The lease payments are discounted using the Company's incremental borrowing rate as note above.

Right-of-use assets are measured at cost comprising the following:

   --      the committed lease payments due from date of recognition to the end of the lease term; 

-- any other committed payments in relation to the leases including service charges and dilapidation commitments;

-- an applied discount factor on the above commitments equal to the Company's cost of borrowing as noted above;

Included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the period to 31 December 2019 is a depreciation charge of GBP0.29m included within operating costs and notional interest of GBP0.02m included within finance expense.

As at 31 December 2019, the right of use asset included in 'Property, plant and equipment' has a net book value of GBP1.15m and the lease liability included within trade and other payable has a value of GBP1.50m, with GBP0.72m less than one year and GBP0.78m greater than one year.

Other considerations

(i) Variable lease payments

Estimation uncertainty arising from variable lease payments

One property lease contains variable payment terms that are linked to sales generated from the store. The initial measurement of the lease payment terms are based on the minimum guaranteed payments which are in-substance fixed payments. The variability in lease terms based on sales levels over a certain amount will be recognised in the profit or loss when such conditions are triggered. As such, any decrease in sales would not affect the lease liability. However, a 5% increase in sales in the store would increase total lease payments by GBP11k.

(ii) Extension and termination options

Extension and termination options are included in a number of property and equipment leases across the Company. These terms are used to maximise operational flexibility in terms of managing contracts. The majority of extension and termination options held are exercisable only by the Company and not by the respective lessor.

In determining the lease term, management considers all facts and circumstances that create an economic incentive to exercise an extension option, or not exercise a termination option. Extension options (or periods after termination options) are only included in the lease term if the lease is reasonably certain to be extended (or not terminated). In all leases recognised as at 31 December 2019, the lease end date has been taken as the first available termination date per the lease agreements.

(iii) Leases not recognised under IFRS16

Short-term leases and leases of low-value assets are recognised on a straight-line basis as an expense in profit or loss. Short-term leases are leases with a lease term of 12 months or less. There is therefore no change in the treatment of these within the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

Going concern

The Company has sufficient financial resources available to it, together with established contracts with a number of customers and suppliers. As a consequence, the Directors believe that the Company is well placed to continue managing its business risks successfully and they have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Thus, they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the financial information in this interim report.

   4.     TAXATION 

Tax has been charged at 19% for the six months ended 31 December 2019 (2018: 19%) representing the best estimate of the average annual effective tax rate expected to apply for the full year, applied to the pre-tax income of the six month period. A deferred tax liability of GBP1.8m (2018: GBP0.1m) has been recognised in respect of short term timing differences.

   5.    EARNINGS PER SHARE 

Basic earnings per share has been calculated by dividing the profit for the period of GBP19.3m (2018: GBP15.2m) by the weighted average number of Ordinary Shares in issue 94,262,133 (2018: 93,865,887). Diluted earnings per share as at 31 December 2019 has been calculated by dividing the profit for the period by the weighted average number of Ordinary Shares, Convertible Cumulative Preference Shares and Convertible Preferred Ordinary Shares in issue, assuming conversion at the balance sheet date if dilutive.
