Chairman' s Statement

On 21 December 2020, just before the world's first Covid-19 Christmas, DP Poland sought shareholder approval for, the 'reverse takeover' of Dominium S.A (the "Acquisition").

Prior to the two businesses coming together, Dominium had been a significant, successful pizza competitor in the Polish market. Unlike DP Poland, Dominium's focus was more on dine-in than delivery, owning and operating some prominent restaurant sites across Poland.

The Acquisition received significant support from DP Poland shareholders, and was approved by shareholders on 8 January 2021.

The Board believes that the Acquisition is a transformational deal for DP Poland: the two businesses complement one another, both with high quality products and service and the combined dine-in and delivery offering has meaningful scale in the Polish market. On completion of the Acquisition, DP Poland became one of the largest pizza and Italian food operators in Poland . In addition, the business combination removes any possible confusion over the names of the two businesses.

The transaction took some 12 months to finalise: the impact of Covid-19 and the consequential restrictions in movement, the need for approval from the Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection ("UOKiK"), negotiating a complex transaction in two languages, under two different legal codes, proved challenging. But we got there! The positive approach of the combined team was crucial to this; I am delighted to say that this approach continues.

We appreciate the continued support of Domino's Pizza International, Inc. ("DPI"), our master franchisor, who's approval of this transaction was essential to getting the deal across the line.

At the time of writing this statement, Covid-19 case rates continue to fall in Poland, dine-in (both in restaurant terraces/summer gardens and inside the restaurants themselves) has resumed recently, and customers are clearly enjoying the ability to dine out once again at their favourite restaurants. Early days yet, but encouraging signs for your company. Your board continues to believe that, however long it takes for Covid-19 related issues to subside, the combination of the businesses of DP Poland and Dominium will create a major player in the Polish food and beverage sector.

Combining two similar sized businesses takes time. We started our efforts to combine the two businesses as early as possible. These efforts have not been helped by the continuing Covid-19 issues relating to operating in Poland, limiting the reopening of summer gardens and terraces, besides indoor dining, but we have made good progress over the first half of this year. Further details of the integration progress are set out in the Chief Executive's Review.

As reported on 31 March 2021, DP Poland's trading performance in respect of the year ended 31 December 2020 was in line with management expectations. Dominium had a difficult time in 2020, as its dine-in operations were, in effect, closed in accordance with Government rules. Nevertheless, Dominium's management - led by Piotr - pivoted the Dominium business successfully towards delivery/collection to address this new environment. As the enlarged group comes together, the Board believes that the performance of 2020 is not indicative of the enlarged group's potential for the future.

Your board continues to believe that the enlarged group is well positioned and prepared for the easing of Covid-19 regulations across Europe and the world. Despite the ongoing challenges, your board continues to be confident about the prospects for the enlarged DP Poland group as a leading player in the Polish food and beverage sector.

The enlarged group has a great team. I thank every member of our team for their efforts over this extraordinary period. I also thank DPP shareholders for their support

Chief Executive's Review

It is my pleasure to address you for the first time in my role as the Chief Executive Officer of DP Poland.

2020 was an extraordinary year due to the Covid-19 pandemic but I believe that it was also a breakthrough year for the company. The challenges and opportunities for DP Poland in early 2020, driven also by the government imposed lockdowns, made your board reconsider the company's business strategy and led DP Poland to explore the possibility of acquiring Dominium. Our conclusions, and the proposed strategy for the enlarged group, were set out in DP Poland's AIM Admission Document published on 21 December 2020. The transaction completed on 8 January 2021, with overwhelming support of the shareholders of both businesses. I thank all shareholders for that support.

The acquisition of Dominium represents a step change in Domino's operations in Poland. DP Poland has almost doubled in size (in terms of store numbers) and our growth plans have been accelerated significantly. A larger network of stores allows us to be closer to our customers and to deliver our freshly baked pizza faster and cheaper than at any time before. This proved to be of great importance during the pandemic and I am confident that this strong positioning will continue to serve us for much longer.

The transaction brought not only an increase in footprint but provided the opportunity to share our best practices. We have compiled a new menu based on the bestselling products and recipes of each business. We have built a team comprising of the most promising talents of the two organisations and also selected the best suppliers; our greater buying power as an enlarged group is helpful in this regard. We have utilised the operational capacity of DP Poland's commissary to supply products to the entire enlarged network.

DP Poland, as an enlarged business, remains primarily focussed on delivery, however we will continue to operate our dine-in locations, previously Dominium restaurants, and treat those as our flagship stores. Dominium had successfully combined a dine-in and delivery business model, occupying high footfall locations which promoted the brand and stimulated delivery sales. I believe that this effect will be even stronger for the enlarged network.

We are happy to see the growing scale of vaccination across the country and the resulting relaxation of lockdown measures. Our dine-in locations faced significant challenges during the pandemic as they were required by Government regulation to be closed. However, at the time of writing this review conditions appear to be improving: with the public, our potential customers, using every opportunity to go out. We believe that we now have a network that can operate successfully both during and post the lockdown environment.

We began our preparation for the integration of DP Poland and Dominium during the last quarter of 2020, however the implementation could only be started once the acquisition completed. I am pleased to report that the operational combination has been completed: we have redesigned our organisational chart, changed and unified remuneration policies, launched a new menu for the combined business and invested in capital to standardise our level of service across the network. We have placed a particular focus on the processes around food preparation, investing heavily in our kitchens and refrigeration units. The biggest challenge has proved to the integration of IT and adoption of systems which are standardised among all Domino's brand businesses around the world. We believe that our efforts in IT integration and adoption of systems, which continues to be implemented across our stores, will pay off in the future.

All of the above would not be possible without the support of our combined team. I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and hard work of our employees and I would like to use this opportunity to thank everyone for going the extra mile to get us to where we are today. The team extends beyond that of DP Poland, and I am proud to say that today we consider ourselves a member of a wider Domino's family. We have received tremendous support at all levels from DPI and the Acquisition could not have taken place if it had not been supported so well by the entire European team of DPI, who have spent significant time working on, and supporting us through, the process.

At the time of writing this review we are operating in, what we hope to be, the start of the post Covid-19 environment: I sincerely hope that the progress in this regard will continue. All of our restaurants have been able to provide collection, delivery and dine-in services to our customers since 28 May 2021. Our products are now sold via a single e-commerce platform, which was launched during the first quarter of 2021. We have also introduced a mobile application that is an updated version of the solution that worked well in Dominium. On the back of the IT integration, we have introduced a new menu with new products and prices..

The pandemic and the merger has proved challenging over the last year. I believe that we have used that time wisely and are now at a point where we will start to see the benefits of these efforts in the months and years to come.

In this annual report we are presenting the 2020 financial statements of DP Poland on a standalone basis, as the merger completed after the financial year end. DP Poland enjoyed a growth in delivery sales during the 2020 lockdown, although it did not achieve a breakthrough in terms of profitability during the financial year. I believe that the combination of DP Poland and Dominium will address this issue and I look forward to reporting on the Group's performance during the 2021 financial year.

STRATEGIC REPORT

Chief Financial Officer 's Review

Overview

It is a great pleasure for me to comment on the financial performance of DP Poland for the first time as the Company's Chief Financial Officer.

2020 was marred by challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, which had a severe impact on the operations and performance of many industries worldwide, including the restaurant and food delivery sectors in Poland. The ability to provide indoor dine-in services has been restricted by Polish government guidelines twice in 2020: once during the Spring (for 9 weeks) as well as the Autumn (for the last 10 weeks of 2020 since late October 2020, but continuing in 2021 for a further 21 weeks until late May 2021). These restrictions have, inevitably, negatively impacted restaurants' performance, however in contrast, the food delivery sector has thrived. The food delivery sector in Poland has grown significantly during the pandemic and the Group, with its short delivery times, contactless payments and contactless delivery/collection service has benefitted from this sector's growth despite the unfortunate circumstances.

Despite its rapid like-for-like sales growth and consistent store rollout program, the Group has been facing continued pressure on labour costs which have been coupled with underutilised operations as a result of its sub-optimal store footprint. We expect that the integration with Dominium will alleviate these pressures.

Reverse takeover

The Company announced on 6 August 2020 that an application had been filed with UOKiK, the Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, in connection with the proposed acquisition by DP Poland of the entire issued share capital of Dominium, a Polish pizza restaurant operator. On 19 October 2020, the Company announced that approval for the Acquisition had been granted by UOKiK. As the Acquisition constituted a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules, trading in the Company's Existing Ordinary Shares was suspended pending publication of an Admission Document. The Admission Document was published on 21 December 2020, and the proposed transaction was subject to shareholders' approval. Following shareholder approval, which was granted on 7 January 2021, the transaction completed on 8 January 2021.

Consideration for the Acquisition was satisfied by the issue of 283,766,661 new ordinary shares in DP Poland and the issue by DP Poland of an unsecured loan note of EUR1.3 million to Malaccan Holdings Limited. Additionally, outstanding debt due from Dominium to Malaccan Holdings Limited to the value of EUR6.2 million was converted into the same unsecured loan note, bringing the total amount of principal owed by DP Poland to Malaccan Holdings Limited to EUR7.5 million. As part of the transaction a placing of 19,965,361 new ordinary shares and a subscription of 23,784,639 new ordinary shares in DP Poland was conducted, at a price of 8 pence (the "Issue Price") per ordinary share, raising approximately GBP3.5 million (before expenses) for the Group. In addition, 21,824,204 of the shares issued to Malaccan Holdings Limited were placed at the Issue Price. The enlarged share capital of DP Poland was admitted to AIM on 8 January 2021.

The Acquisition almost doubled the number of stores within the Company's portfolio and will provide a basis for:

(i) a more compelling consumer proposition under the single - Domino's Pizza brand;

(ii) optimisation of the delivery network;

(iii) streamlining of the enlarged Group's operations; as well as

(iv) further expansion and market penetration into new cities and towns.

The Group's objective is to continue to build on its position as a leading player in Poland and work towards being the market leader in terms of number of stores as well as in pizza delivery. Several synergies have already been achieved in terms of costs and further are expected to be achieved in forthcoming months.

The figures below do not include the results of Dominium as the Acquisition completed after the Group's 2020 financial year end.

Revenue

The increase in Group's revenue of 7% is primarily due to the Group's delivery operations benefitting from the Covid-19 restrictions and the improved food delivery dynamics in Poland. The primary drivers for the 5% LFL growth in 2020 was due to an increase in average order value as well as effective price increases. From a phasing perspective, as profiled later in the Key Performance Indicators section, DP Poland's performance in 2020 consistently improved from quarter to quarter, with negative LFL growth during the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic to a 12.9% increase in the last quarter of 2020.

Direct costs

Direct costs increased by 10% in 2020 which outpaced the increase in revenues. The key drivers of this movement included a substantial increase in national minimum wage in Poland, a 33% increase in the maintenance costs of the delivery scooter fleet as scooters were not replaced. In addition, the Group experienced a 48% increase in personal protection equipment costs due to the pandemic (for example purchasing gloves and masks for employees) and a 56% increase in the commissions paid towards online payments processing and aggregators. Furthermore, the Group experienced a general increase in costs as a result of franchise stores being acquired from sub-franchisee owners.

Although the Polish economy was subject to one of the highest inflation rates in Europe during 2020, the Group managed to keep food costs (as % of revenue) at a stable level.

Throughout 2020 labour cost inflation continued in Poland, representing a challenge for the Group, particularly for newer stores which usually have insufficient sales to absorb the fixed cost element of labour during their early stages. The national minimum wage in Poland in 2020 has been increased by 16% (year-on-year) on top of a 7% (year-on-year) increase in 2019.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A")

SG&A were equivalent to 19% of revenue, similarly to levels in 2019 . The Group experienced an increase in wages and salaries as well as in IT costs.

Other non-cash and non-recurring items

The Group recognised significant level of non-cash and non-recurring items in 2020. These include the costs related to the Acquisition (totalling GBP 1,085,572) as well as the impairment of loans and a bad debt provision, both relating to sub-franchisees, totalling GBP929,246 . A substantial part of impairment and bad debt provision relates to the buy-outs of sub-franchisee stores, which were planned in 2020 and completed throughout the year and into 2021. Finally, executive redundancy costs totaled GBP111,925.

Group loss for the period

Group loss for the period increased by 66%. This is mainly due to non-recurring costs which are described above .

Actual exchange rates for 2020 and 2019

The large cash movement is a result of negative 2020 EBITDA and the costs incurred in connection with the reverse acquisition of Dominium S.A.. The cash balances stated above do not include the funds raised for the Company in connection with the Acquisition.

Macro-economic conditions in Poland

Polish GDP decreased during 2020 against a backdrop of strong growth in 2019. The country is expected to face increased inflation during 2021. The board is constantly monitoring purchase prices to ensure the Croup can react to any price increases from its suppliers.

The unemployment rate improved in 2020 with a further improvement in note during the start of 2021.

Going concern

The board considered the Group's forecasts, in particular those relating to the ongoing integration of Dominium operations into the Group and its expected impact on the Group's performance, to satisfy itself that the Group has sufficient resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future.

Over the past quarters in 2020 and 2021, the board of DP Poland has given considerable thought as to how the Group might define, quantify and minimise the risks related to the Covid-19 pandemic. As the number of new Covid-19 cases recorded in Poland reached its peak during the months of March and April in 2021, and has reduced since then, and with the rapid roll-out of the vaccination program, the board considers that the pandemic-related risks are reducing. Our core focus remains on delivering the expected synergies arising from the merger with Dominium, as profiled in the Admission Document, which are the key building block in bringing the Company's net cash flows into positive territory. The Company's recent equity fundraise, which provided an additional GBP3.5m (before expenses) of resource, has further improved the Company's cash balances and its ability to settle the substantial transaction and integration costs, capital expenditure as well as operating losses, in expectation of the synergistic benefits of the merger.

Having considered the Group's cash flows and its liquidity position, and after reviewing the forecast for the next twelve months and beyond, the Directors believe that the Group have adequate resources to continue operations for the foreseeable future and for this reason they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements.

That said, the board does take into account the uncertainty related to the future dynamics of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the uncertainty related to the actual quantum and timing of full synergies being delivered, which remain the most pronounced risks to our going concern assumptions.

   1.   ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

Basis of preparation

The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis, with the exception of certain financial instruments and share based payments. The consolidated and Company financial statements of DP Poland plc have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRS'), adopted pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002 as it applies in the European Union, as they apply to the financial statements of the Group for the year ended 31 December 2020 and applied in accordance with the Companies Act 2006.. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS and IFRIC interpretations issued and effective or issued and early adopted as at the time of preparing these statements (June 2020). The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting policies.

   2.   REVENUE 

Revenue is measured based on the consideration to which the Group expects to be entitled in a contract with a customer and excludes amounts collected on behalf of third parties. All of the revenue is derived in Poland.

Corporate store sales: Contracts with customers for the sale of products to end consumers include one performance obligation. The Group has concluded that revenue from the sale of products should be recognised at a point in time when control of the goods is transferred to the consumer, which is the point of delivery or collection. Sales are recorded approximately 30 minutes before delivery. Revenue is measured at the menu price less any discounts offered.

Royalties, franchise fees and sales to franchisees: Contracts with customers for the sale of products include one performance obligation, being the delivery of products to the end customer. The Group has concluded that revenue from the sale of products should be recognised at a point in time when control of the goods are transferred to the franchisee, generally on delivery. Revenue is recognised at the invoiced price less any estimated rebates. The performance obligation relating to royalties is the use of the Domino's brand. This represents a sales-based royalty with revenue recognised at the point the franchisee makes a sale to an end consumer. Revenue from franchisee fees is recognised when a franchisee opens a store for trading or on completion of sale of one or more stores to a third party, as this is the point at which all performance obligations have been satisfied.

Rental income on leasehold property: Rental income arising from leasehold properties where the lease is an operating lease is recognised on a straight-line basis in accordance with the lease terms. Rental payments are recognised over the period to which they relate. Under IFRS 16 'leases' rents received under finance leases are treated as capital repayments and interest receipts and are excluded from revenues.

 
 Revenue is divided into 'core revenues' and 'other 
  revenues' as follows: 
                                                                 2020         2019 
                                                                  GBP          GBP

   3.   SEGMENTAL REPORTING 

The Board monitors the performance of the corporate stores and the commissary operations separately and therefore those are considered to be the Group's two operating segments. Corporate store sales comprise sales to the public. Commissary operations comprise sales to sub-franchisees of food, services and fixtures and equipment. Commissary operations also include the receipt of royalty income from sub-franchisees. The Board monitors the performance of the two segments based on their contribution towards Group EBITDA - excluding non-cash items, non-recurring items and store pre-opening expenses. In accordance with IFRS 8, the segmental analysis presented reflects the information used by the Board. No separate balance sheets are prepared for the two operating segments and therefore no analysis of segment assets and liabilities is presented.

Corporate store direct costs include all costs directly attributable to operating the stores. Store EBITDA represents corporate store sales less store food costs and direct store expenses.

The Directors have reviewed the tax rates applicable in the different tax jurisdictions in which the Group operates. They have concluded that a tax rate of 19% represents the overall tax rate applicable to the Group.

   7.   LOSS PER SHARE 

The loss per ordinary share has been calculated as follows:

 
                     2020          2020          2019          2019

                  average      / (loss)       average      / (loss) 
                   number         after        number         after 
                of shares           tax     of shares           tax 
  ---------  ------------  ------------  ------------  ------------ 
   Basic      251,228,264   (5,818,296)   232,432,469   (3,511,768) 
   Diluted    251,228,264   (5,818,296)   232,432,469   (3,511,768) 
  ---------  ------------  ------------  ------------  ------------ 
 

The weighted average number of shares for the year excludes those shares in the Company held by the employee benefit trust. At 31st December 2020 the basic and diluted loss per share is the same, as the vesting of JOSS, SIP or share option awards would reduce the loss per share and is, therefore, anti-dilutive.

The Company does not have an authorised share capital.

11. EVENTS AFTER THE BALANCE SHEET DATE

a) Reverse Acquisition

With effect from 8 January 2021, the Company became the legal parent of Dominium S.A.. The aggregate consideration paid by the legal acquirer was GBP23,871,998 satisfied by the issue of 283,766,661 new ordinary shares of the Company issued at 8p per ordinary share and GBP1,170,665 by way of a 1.3m EUR loan note issued in favour of Malaccan Holdings Ltd the former owner of Dominium S.A..

Under IFRS 3, due to the relative values of the companies, the transaction is treated as a reverse acquisition with Dominium S.A. as the accounting acquirer and the pre-acquisition DP Poland Group as the accounting acquiree. Malaccan Holdings Ltd became the majority shareholder with approximately 52.8% of the share capital of the enlarged Group at the time of the transaction. Malacan Holdings Ltd has subsequently reduced its holding to 45% of the issued share capital."

The Directors believe that the combination of the two businesses will place the Company within the top three pizza chains in Poland in terms of stores and restaurants. The acquisition will almost double the number of stores within the Company's portfolio and will provide a basis for further expansion and market penetration into new cities and towns. There are a number of cost savings and synergies which are expected to arise from the acquisition.

b) Issue of ordinary shares

On 07 January 2021 the Company completed a placing of 19,965,361 new ordinary shares and a subscription of 23,784,639 new ordinary shares with certain existing and new investors, at a price of 8 pence per share raising a total of GBP3.5 million before expenses.

The fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired by the accounting acquirer are as follows:

 
                                             8 January

  DP Poland Group                               12,554 
 
 
 Consideration paid by the accounting 
  acquirer                                      18,423 
 

Any fair value adjustments to the assets and liabilities above are still being considered.

Acquisition expenses

The advisors' and other costs incurred by DP Poland plc (the legal acquirer) in acquiring Dominium S.A. amounted to GBP1,129,643 of which GBP1,085,573 was incurred during 2020. The expense is presented in the Group Income Statement under 'Other non-cash and non-recurring items'.

Intangible assets

The intangible assets acquired by the accounting acquirer relate to: Franchise fees, intellectual property rights, software and the capitalised loan discount relating to sub-franchisee loans

Trade and other receivables

The Directors consider that the gross contractual amounts of trade receivables and loan receivables are not materially different to the fair values

Borrowings

As part of the reverse acquisition DP Poland plc (the legal acquirer) issued a EUR1.3 million loan note in favour of Malaccan Holdings Ltd the former owner of Dominium S.A.. In addition, outstanding debt of EUR6.2 million (approximately GBP5.6 million) that was previously due from Dominium to Malaccan Holdings under certain existing Shareholder Loans was converted into a further unsecured loan note of EUR6.2 million being issued to Malaccan Holdings on the same terms and in substitution for that outstanding debt. In aggregate, therefore, EUR7.5 million Loan Notes were issued by DP Poland plc and remain outstanding to Malaccan Holdings upon completion of the acquisition of Dominium S.A.. The Loan Notes are not convertible.

Goodwill

The goodwill recognised by the accounting acquirer is equal to the consideration (as determined under IFRS 3) which was paid by the accounting acquirer less the fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired with the accounting acquiree. The goodwill recognised is made up by the expected synergies of the enlarged business and it is expected that the improved scale of the enlarged business will help the Company to achieve its objective of becoming a market leader in Poland.

Results of Dominium S.A. - the accounting acquirer

The results of Dominium have not been included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the year ended 31 December 2020 because the acquisition became effective after the balance sheet date. If the accounting acquirer had been a member of the Group from the beginning of the year, it would have contributed revenues of GBP13,982,727 and net loss for the period of GBP3,007,356.

12. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The Annual General Meeting of the members of DP Poland plc will be held at The Foster, Room, West Meon Village Hall, West Meon, Hampshire, GU32 1LH, at 9.00 a.m. on 30 July 2021.
