ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Section IV Performance Discussion and AnalysisI OverviewSignificant precipitation in North America in the first quarter followed by unprecedented flooding in the secondquarter, alongside extreme dry weather in Europe, India and parts of Asia-Pacific, delayed and reduced applicationof crop protection products in these regions. Latin America benefited from relatively strong demand in the southernhemisphere off-season. India’s monsoon season started late in the second quarter, delaying the sowing of severalsummer-planted crops.Crop prices have generally remained subdued in the first half of 2019, with the exception of corn, which continuesto challenge farmer income in most regions, resulting in continued sluggish demand for crop protection products.The sustained supply-constrained environment, mostly owing to increased environmental focus in China, has seencontinued industry-wide shortages in certain raw materials and intermediates, and resulted in procurement costsremaining elevated compared to the first half of last year. The Company continues to raise its prices in all regionsand contain its manufacturing and other operating costs to mitigate this impact.For ADAMA, the extended cold and wet conditions in North America, alongside dry weather in Europe, India andparts of Asia-Pacific, delayed and reduced application of crop protection products, while continued tight supplyconditions prevented the Company from taking advantage of demand for certain products.Strong growth in Latin America, led by Brazil, as well as resilient performance in APAC, notably Australia,alongside the contribution of joiners Bonide and Anpon, partially offset these weather- and supply-related delays.In China, continued strong demand for the Company’s differentiated, formulated and branded products is supportingthe shift towards sales through its own channels and away from sales of unformulated, technical active ingredientsto intermediaries.The Company continues to drive growth with new launches of differentiated product throughout all regions. Thecontinued supportive pricing environment allowed for the raising of prices by an average of 3% across all regions,passing on some of the impact of the constrained supply and higher procurement costs, while mitigating the impactof generally softer currencies. In addition, the Company continues to contain its manufacturing and other operatingcosts, while recording idleness costs at Jingzhou old site.Looking toward the second half of the year, the Company expects robust growth, as the southern hemisphere regions,which are performing strongly, move into their peak season, as the Monsoon season progresses in India, and assupply constraints start alleviating.Increasing collaboration activitiesThe Company continues to advance collaboration opportunities with other ChemChina group entities, as well asother entities of the Sinochem group, to make the most of its positioning.Jingzhou Old SiteFollowing resumption of operations at the Jingzhou old site in late March, the Company is advancing the gradualramp-up of production. The new state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility is operational, and the upgraded

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

biological-decomposition systems are being acclimated to the improved wastewater quality. As this progresses, theCompany is still experiencing constrained supply in key products manufactured at the site, especially impacting theAmericas, Asia-Pacific, China and India, Middle-East and Africa, constraining sales and gross profit byapproximately $100 million and $35 million, respectively, in the half-year, and recorded approximately $20 millionin related idleness costs during the period, bringing the impact from the disruption on EBITDA to approximately$50 million and on Net Income to approximately $40 million. In recent weeks, the Ecological Protection SupervisionTeam of the central government commenced on-site inspections at many ChemChina’s group companies, includingthe Company’s sites in China, as part of its strengthening ongoing environmental and safety focus. ADAMA isworking in full cooperation, in the context of its 3-year relocation and upgrade process which is due to concludenext year, to identify and rectify any safety or environmental matter.Notwithstanding that the old site only produces a small number of products for the group, and the fact that ADAMAhas significant production and procurement capabilities elsewhere in China and worldwide ,the suspension has hada negative impact on the Company’s performance as described above.Regarding the explanations on the changes of the financial data, please refer to the “II Analysis of Main Business”of this chapter.II Analysis of Main BusinessSee details on the relevant contents of “I.

Note: The significantly higher total profits, net income and EBITDA for the first half of 2018 mainly reflect theone-time capital gain from the divestment of a portfolio of registrations in connection with the 2017 ChemChina-Syngenta transaction, which increased Total Profits and EBITDA by USD 314.3 million and Net Income by USD

244.8 million.

Analysis of Financial Highlights

(1) Sales

Regional Sales Performance

Europe: Sales in Europe were impacted by tight supply conditions as well as unseasonably hot weather towards theend of the second quarter, which constrained sales in key countries.In Northern Europe, sales continued to be impacted by credit restraint in Ukraine, with the Company proactivelyrestricting sales to only those customers with a proven ability to pay, as well as by adverse weather conditions inGermany, reducing crop protection application in all major crops, alongside the tight supply conditions.In Southern Europe, weak disease pressure in key markets resulted in subdued demand for crop protection products,while supply-related constraints further impacted sales.In the second quarter, ADAMA launched MERKUR? in France, a differentiated, broad-spectrum three-wayherbicide mixture in an innovative formulation, combating weed seed germination and growth. In addition, theCompany obtained several new product registrations, including MERPLUS?, a differentiated fungicide for pomefruits in Europe and FLUTEPRID?, a 3-way combination insecticide-fungicide seed dressing for control of diseasesand pests in grain crops in Russia.North America. Sales in North America benefited from continued price increases partially offsetting adverseweather conditions.Significant and extended precipitation in the first quarter, followed by unprecedented floodings in the second quarter,

posed significant challenges for farmers, delaying the planting season and reducing planted acreage, impacting salesacross key agricultural markets.In Consumer and Professional Solutions, the Company saw a pleasing contribution from joiner Bonide, despite thechallenging weather conditions which similarly impacted the non-crop market.BRAZEN?, a selective herbicide for grass control in spring wheat and barley in Canada, delivered a strongperformance in its first quarter following its recent launch.Latin America. Latin America delivered business growth in key countries across the region, alongside continuedprice increases, more than offsetting the impact of constrained supply.The Company continues to grow strongly in Brazil, where robust demand for its corn portfolio overcame supplyshortages in certain products. The Company saw strong performance in the key soybean market, leveraging itsdistinctive product offering, including flagship CRONNOS?, the triple-action fungicide for rust, while benefitingfrom an increase in planted areas.Noteworthy performance was recorded in the second quarter in Argentina, despite adverse weather conditions.During the quarter, the Company launched several new products, including BREVIS?, a differentiated post-bloomfruit thinner in apples in Argentina, as well as KADABRA?, a broad-spectrum mixture insecticide for vegetablesin Mexico, and UBERTOP? an insecticide used mainly for the control of a wide range of pests in tomato andcabbage in Central America, while the proprietary NIMITZ? suite of nematicide products was launched in Peru.Asia-Pacific. Sales in the region grew, driven by business growth and continued price increases.The second quarter saw a strong recovery in Australia, as long-awaited rain bolstered the winter crop seasonfollowing the severe drought which significantly impacted sales in the country in the first quarter. However, droughtconditions continued to impact the broader Asia-Pacific region in the second quarter, reducing crop protectionapplication and constraining sales in many countries.During the quarter, the Company obtained a number of new registrations for differentiated products, includingLEGACY MA-X? for controlling a wide range of broadleaf weeds in Australian winter cereals and pasture,APROPO? fungicide for rice in Philippines, and TOPNOTCH? to control various diseases in Australian wheat andbarley.In China, ADAMA continues to see strong demand for its differentiated, formulated and branded products, andprioritizes the sale of these products through its own channels by rapidly shifting away from selling unformulated,technical product to intermediaries, and in so doing benefiting from the full product positioning as well as end-to-end margin. Sales of these formulated, branded products other than those from the Jingzhou old site, grew by morethan 20% in both the quarter and first half.ADAMA continues to make significant portfolio advances in China, with the launch in the second quarter ofLEIWANG?, a combination insecticide to help combat the fall army worm outbreak.Anpon delivered a solid performance in its first full quarter since joining, compensating for the interruption tosupply resulting from the Jingzhou old site.India, Middle East & Africa. Sales in India were impacted by the late Monsoon rains, reducing planting areas anddelaying crop protection application, as well as supply constraints in China-sourced products. In the half-year,growth in the region benefited from a strong performance in Turkey.

(2) Gross Profit

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Compared to the first half of last year, procurement costs remained elevated, mostly owing to increasedenvironmental and safety focus in China that has seen continued industry-wide shortages in certain raw materialsand intermediates. Benefiting from a stronger pricing environment, the Company continued to raise prices, by anaverage of 3% across all regions, and contained its manufacturing and other operating costs, which compensatedfor a large part of the impact of the constrained supply, higher procurement costs and softer currencies. The Jingzhouold site disruption constrained H1 gross profit by approximately $35 million.

(3) Operating Expenses

Sales and Marketing expenses increased mainly due to the first-time inclusion of Bonide’s expenses, as well asthe amortization of the written-up value of assets transferred from Syngenta in connection with the 2017ChemChina-Syngenta transaction (see additional details below), which offset the benefit of expense containmentand softer currencies.In recent years, the Company conducted various corporate development activities, including mergers andacquisitions, which resulted in the inclusion within its sales and marketing expenses of various one-time or non-cash or non-operational items affecting the Company’s reported numbers, mainly as follows:

? Amortization of legacy Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) of 2011 acquisition of Solutions: Under PRC GAAP,since the first combined reporting in Q3 2017 following the combination, the Company has inherited thehistorical “legacy” amortization charge that ChemChina previously was incurring in respect of its acquisition ofSolutions in 2011. This amortization is done in a linear manner on a quarterly basis, most of which will be fullyamortized by the end of 2020. Its reported financial impact in the first half of 2019 is USD 19 million, net of tax.? Amortization of Transfer assets received and written-up due to 2017 ChemChina-Syngenta transaction:

The proceeds from the Divestment of crop protection products in connection with the approval by the EUCommission of the acquisition of Syngenta by ChemChina, net of taxes and transaction expenses, were paid toSyngenta in return for the transfer of a portfolio of products in Europe of similar nature and economic value.Since the products acquired from Syngenta are of the same nature, and with the same net economic value asthose divested, the Divestment and Transfer transactions had no net impact on the underlying economicperformance of the Company. Its reported financial impact in the first half of 2019 is USD 19.8 million.? Amortization of acquisition PPA (non-cash): The amortization of non-cash intangible assets created in the

course of acquisitions, has no impact on the ongoing performance of the companies acquired. Its reportedfinancial impact in the first half of 2019 is USD 2.4 million, net of tax.General and Administrative expenses: the Company continued to contain expenses and benefited from softercurrencies, which offset the first-time inclusion of expenses of Bonide, while the increase mainly resulted from therecording of a first half charge in respect of idleness costs at the Jingzhou old site, as it advances its gradual ramp-up in production.Research and Development expenses reflect higher spending on strategic research and development projects.

(4) Financial Expenses

Financial expenses alone mainly reflect interest payments on corporate bonds and loans as well as foreign exchangegains/losses on the bonds and other monetary assets and liabilities before the Company carries out any hedging. Thesharp increase in the first half of 2019 compared with the same period last year is mainly due to the impact of boththe appreciation of the Israeli Shekel, as well as the increase of the higher CPI on the Shekel-denominated CPI-linked bonds.

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Given the global nature of its operational activities and the composition of its assets and liabilities, the Group, inthe ordinary course of its business, uses foreign currency derivatives (forwards and options) to hedge the cash flowrisks associated with existing monetary assets and liabilities that may be affected by exchange rate fluctuations. Netgains/losses from hedging of those positions are recorded in Gains/Losses from Changes in Fair Value, and are thentransferred to Investment Income upon realization.The aggregate of Financial Expenses, Gains/Losses from Changes in Fair Value and Investment Income uponrealization (hereinafter as Total Net Financial Expenses and Investment Income), which more comprehensivelyreflects financial cost of the Company in supporting its main business and protecting its monetary assets/liabilities,amounts to USD 84 million for H1 2019 compared with USD 70 million for H1 2018.The increase in aggregate Net Financial Expenses and Investment Income reflects the higher CPI impact on theIsraeli bonds, as well as higher interest and hedging costs, while the lower expenses in the corresponding periodslast year reflect the benefit of foreign exchange income related to balance sheet positions.

(5) Tax expenses.

Net tax expenses were lower largely due to the lower taxable income, while the higher tax expenses in the priorperiods reflected the non-cash impact of the devaluation of the Brazilian Real, resulting in a lower value of localcurrency-denominated non-monetary assets, as well as the tax charge incurred on the capital gain from thedivestment of registrations related to the ChemChina-Syngenta transaction, in the amount of USD 69.5 million.

(6) Cash Flow.

Operating cash flow was lower, reflecting the build-up of working capital and the impact of the partially operationalJingzhou old site. The higher level of working capital reflects increased trade receivables resulting from theCompany’s strong growth in Q4 2018 and the robust performance in Brazil in the first-half of 2019, alongsidecertain reduction in payable days due to a change in supplier mix. Inventory levels were higher due to the missingof sales resulting from the weather-related challenges as well as credit restraint in eastern Europe, alongside thebuild-up of inventory to prepare for the expected growth in the second half of 2019, as well as the first-time additionof Bonide.Net cash used in investing activities increased mainly reflecting the acquisition of Bonide, while in the first quarterof 2018, the Company recorded the one-time proceeds from the divestiture of several products in connection withthe approval by the EU Commission of the acquisition of Syngenta by ChemChina, and outflow of a lesser netamount for the transfer of a similar portfolio of products.Net cash provided by Financing Activities includes mainly the increase in borrowing during the period, offset byinterest and dividend payments, as well as payments in respect of bond hedges.

X Risks Facing the Company and Countermeasures

The Group believes that it is exposed to several major risk factors, resulting from its economic environment, theindustry and the Group's unique characteristics, as follows (the order below does not indicate priority):

Exchange rate fluctuationsAlthough the Company reports its consolidated financial statements in RMB, the Company’s material subsidiarySolutions reports its consolidated financial statements in US dollars, which is its functional currency, while itsoperations, sales and purchases of raw materials are carried out in various currencies. Therefore, fluctuations in theexchange rate of the selling currency against the purchasing currency impact the Company’s results. The Group'smost significant exposures are to the Euro, the Israeli Shekel and the Brazilian Real. The Group has lesser exposuresto other currencies. The strengthening of the US dollar against other currencies in which the Company operatesreduces the dollar value of such sales and vice versa.On an annual perspective, approximately 27% of the Group’s sales are to the European market and therefore theimpact of long-term trends on the Euro may affect the Company's results and profitability.Concentration of currency exposure from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations against assets, includinginventory of finished products in countries of sale, liabilities and cash flow denominated in foreign currencies aredone constantly. High volatility of the exchange rates of these currencies could increase the costs of transactions tohedge against currency exposure, thereby increasing the Company's financing costs.The Group uses commonly accepted financial instruments to hedge most of its substantial net balance sheet exposureto any particular currency. Nonetheless, since as part of these operations the Group hedges against most of itsbalance sheet exposure and only against part of its economic exposure, exchange rate volatility might impact theGroup’s results and profitability. As of the date of approval of the financial statements, the Group has hedged mostof its balance sheet exposure for 2019 as it is on the date of publication of this report.In addition, as the Company’s product sales depend directly on the cyclical nature of the agricultural seasons,therefore the Company’s income and its exposure to the various currencies is not evenly distributed over the year.Countries in the northern hemisphere have similar agricultural seasons and therefore, in these countries, the highest

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

sales are usually during the first half of the calendar year. During this period, the Company is most exposed to theEuro and the Polish Zloty. In the southern hemisphere, the seasons are opposite and most of the local sales arecarried out during the second half of the year. During these months, most of the Company's exposure pertains to theBrazilian Real. The Company has more sales in markets in the northern hemisphere and therefore, the Company'ssales volume during the first half of the year is higher than the sales volume during the second half of the year.Exposure to Interest rate, Israel CPI and NIS exchange rate fluctuationsThe debentures issued by Solutions, the material subsidiary of the Company, are Israeli Shekel based and linked tothe Israel Consumer Price Index (CPI) and therefore an increase in the CPI and an appreciation of the shekel rateagainst the dollar might lead to a significant increase in its financing expenses. As of the date of approval of thefinancial statements, Solutions hedged most of its exposure to these risks on an ongoing basis, through CPI hedgingand USD-ILS exchange rate hedging transactions.The Group is exposed to changes in the US dollar LIBOR interest rate as the Group has dollar denominated liabilities,which bear variable LIBOR interest. The Group prepares a quarterly summary of its exposure to changes in theLIBOR interest rate and periodically examines hedging the variable interest rate by converting it to a fixed rate. Asof the date of approval of the financial statements, the Group has not carried out hedging for such exposure, sinceUS dollar interest rates have been relatively stable.Business operations in emerging marketsThe Group conducts business – mainly product sales and raw material procurement – inter alia, in emerging marketssuch as Latin America (particularly in Brazil, the largest market, country wise, in which the Group operates), EasternEurope, South East Asia and Africa. The Group's activity in emerging markets is exposed to risks typical of thosemarkets, including: political and regulatory instability; volatile exchange rates; economic and fiscal instability andfrequent revisions of economic legislation; relatively high inflation and interest rates; terrorism or war; restrictionson import and trade; differing business cultures; uncertainty as to the ability to enforce contractual and intellectualproperty rights; foreign currency controls; governmental price controls; restrictions on the withdrawal of moneyfrom the country; barter deals and potential entry of international competitors and accelerated consolidations bylarge-scale competitors in these markets. Developments in these regions may have a significant effect on the Group'soperations. Distress to the economies of these markets could impair the ability of the Group's customers to purchaseits products or the ability to market them at international market prices, as well as harm the Group's ability to collectcustomer debts, in a way that could have a significant adverse effect on the Group's operating results.The Group’s operations in multiple regions allows for the diversification of such risks and for the reduction of itsdependency on particular economies. In addition, changes in registration requirements or customers' preferences indeveloped western countries, which may limit the use of raw materials purchased from emerging economies, mayrequire redeployment of the Group's procurement organization, which might negatively affect its profitability for acertain period.Operating in a competitive marketThe crop protection products industry is highly competitive. Currently, approximately 60% of the industry's globalmarket is shared by five leading Originator Companies, which are based in Europe or North America, these beingCorteva, Bayer, BASF Syngenta and FMC, which develop, manufacture and market both patent-protected as wellas off-patent products. The Group competes with the original products with the aim of maintaining and increasingits market share.

The Originator Companies possess resources enabling them to compete aggressively, in the short-to-medium term,on price and profit margins, so as to protect their market share. Loss of market share or inability to acquire additional

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

market share from the Originator Companies can affect the Group's position in the market and adversely affect itsfinancial results.Similarly, the Group also competes in the more decentralized off-patent market, with other off-patent companiesand smaller-scale Originator Companies, which have significantly grown in number in recent years and arematerially changing the face of the crop protection products industry, the majority of whom have not yet deployedglobal distribution networks, and are only active locally. These companies price their products aggressively and attimes have lower profit margins than the Group, which may harm the volume of the Group's sales and product prices.The Group's ability to maintain its revenues and profitability from a specific product in the long term is affected bythe number of companies producing and selling comparable off-patent products and the time of their entrance to therelevant market.Any delay in developing or obtaining registrations for products and/or delayed penetration into markets and/orgrowth of competitors that focus on off-patent active ingredients (whether by the expansion of their product portfolio,granting registrations to other manufacturers (including manufacturers in China and India) to operate in additionalmarkets, transforming their distribution network to a global scale or increasing the competition for distributionaccess), and/or difficulty in purchasing low cost raw materials, may harm the Group’s sales volumes in this sector,affect its global position and lead to price erosion.Decline in scope of agricultural activities; exceptional changes in weather conditionsThe scope of agricultural activities may be negatively affected by many exogenous factors, such as extreme weatherconditions, natural disasters, a significant decrease in agricultural commodity prices, government policies and theeconomic condition of farmers. A decline in the scope of agricultural activities necessarily would cause a declinein the demand for the Group’s products, erosion of its prices and collection difficulties, which may have a significantadverse effect on the Group's results. Extreme weather conditions as well as damages caused by nature have animpact on the demand for the Group's products. The Group believes that, should a number of such bad seasonsoccur in succession, without favorable seasons in the interim, its results may sustain significant harm.Environmental, health and safety legislation, standards, regulation and exposureMany aspects of the Group's operations are strictly regulated, including in relation to production and trading, andparticularly in relation to the storage, treatment, manufacturing, transport, usage and disposal of its products, theiringredients and byproducts, some of which are considered hazardous. The Group's activities involve hazardousmaterials. Defective storage or handling of hazardous materials may cause harm to human life or to the environmentin which the Group operates. The regulatory requirements regarding the environment, health and safety could, interalia, include soil and groundwater clean-up requirements; as well as restrictions on the volume and type of emissionsthe Group is permitted to release into the air, water and soil.The regulatory requirements applicable to the Group vary from product to product and from market to market, andtend to become stricter with time. In recent years, both government authorities and environmental protectionorganizations have been applying growing pressure, including through investigations and indictments as well asincreasingly stricter legislative proposals and class action suits related to companies and products that maypotentially pollute the environment. Compliance with the foregoing legislative and regulatory requirements andprotection against such legal actions requires the Group to spend considerable financial resources (both in terms ofsubstantial ongoing costs and in terms of material one-time investments) as well as human resources in order tomeet mandatory environmental standards. In some instances, this may result in delaying the introduction of productsinto new markets or in adverse effects on the Group’s profitability. In addition, the toughening, material alterationor revocation of environmental licenses or permits, or their stipulations, or the inability to obtain such licenses andpermits, may significantly affect the Group's ability to operate its production facilities, which in turn may have a

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

material adverse effect on the financial and business results of the Group. The Group may be required to bearsignificant civil liability (including due to class actions) or criminal liability (including high penalties and/or highcompensation payments and/or costs of environmental monitoring and rehabilitation), resulting from violation ofenvironmental, health and safety regulations, while some of the existing legislation may impose obligations on theGroup for strict liability, regardless of proof of negligence or malice.While the Group invests material sums in adapting its facilities and in constructing special facilities in accordancewith environmental requirements, it is currently unable to assess with any certainty whether these investments(current and future) and their outcomes may satisfy or meet future requirements, should these be significantlyincreased or adjusted. In addition, the Group is unable to predict with any certainty the extent of future costs andinvestments it may incur so as to meet the requirements of the environmental authorities in the relevant countries inwhich it operates since, inter alia, the Group is unable to estimate the extent of potential pollutions, their length, theextent of the measures required to be taken by the Group in handling them, the division of responsibility amongother parties and the amounts recoverable from third parties.Furthermore, the Group may be the target of bodily injury claims and property damage claims caused by exposureto hazardous materials, which are predominantly covered under the Group’s insurance policies.Legislative, standard and regulatory changes in product registrationThe majority of the substances and products marketed by the Group require registration at various stages of theirdevelopment, production, import, utilization and marketing, and are also subject to strict regulatory supervision bythe regulatory authorities in each country. Compliance with the registration requirements that vary from country tocountry and which are becoming more stringent with time, involves significant time and costs, and rigorouscompliance with individual registration requirements for each product. Noncompliance with these regulatoryrequirements might materially adversely affect the scope of the Group’s expenses, cost structure and profit margins,as well as penetration of its products in the relevant market, and may even lead to suspension of sales of the relevantproduct, and recall of those products already sold, or to legal action. Moreover, to the extent new regulatoryrequirements are imposed on existing registered products (requiring additional investment or leading to the existingregistration's revocation) and/or the Group is required to compensate another company for its use of the latter'sproduct registration data, these might amount to significant sums, considerably increasing the Group's costs andadversely affecting its results and reputation.Additionally, the Group believes that, in countries where the Group maintains a competitive edge, any tougheningof registration requirements may actually increase this edge, since this will make it difficult for its competitors topenetrate the same market, whereas in countries in which the Group possesses a small market share, if any, suchtoughening may make further penetration of the Group's products into that market more difficult.Product liabilityProduct and producer liability present a risk factor to the Group. Regardless of their prospects or actual results,product liability lawsuits might involve considerable costs as well as tarnish the Group's reputation, thus impactingits profits. The Group has a third-party and defective product liability insurance cover. However, there is no certaintythat the scope of insurance cover is sufficient. Any future product liability lawsuit or series of lawsuits couldmaterially affect the Group’s operations and results, should the Group lose the lawsuit or should its insurance covernot suffice or apply in a particular instance. In addition, while currently the Group has not encountered any difficultyrenewing such insurance policy, it is possible that it will encounter future difficulties in renewing an insurancepolicy for third party liability and defective products on terms acceptable to the Group.

Successful market penetration and product diversification

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

The Group’s growth and profit margins are affected, inter alia, by the extent of its success in developingdifferentiated products and obtaining registrations for them, so as to enable it to gain market share at the expense ofits competitors. Usually, being the first to launch a certain off-patent product affords the Group continuing advantage,even after other competitors penetrate the same market. Thus, the Group's revenues and profit margins from a certainproduct could be materially affected by its ability to launch such product ahead of the launch of a comparableproduct by its competitors.Should new products fail to meet registration requirements in the different countries or should it take a long periodof time to obtain such registrations, the Group's ability to successfully introduce a new product to the market inquestion in the future would be affected, since entry into the market prior to other competitors is important forsuccessful market penetration. Furthermore, successful market penetration involves, inter alia, productdiversification in order to suit each market's changing needs. Therefore, if the Group fails to adapt its product mixby developing new products and obtaining the required regulatory approvals, its future ability to penetrate thatmarket and to maintain its existing market share could be affected. Failure to introduce new products to givenmarkets and meet Group objectives (given the considerable time and resources invested in their development andregistration) might affect the sales of the product in question in the relevant market, the Group’s results and margins.Intellectual property rights of the Group and of third partiesThe Group's ability to develop off-patent products is dependent, inter alia, on its ability to oppose patents of anOriginator Company or other third parties, or to develop products that do not otherwise infringe intellectual propertyrights in a manner that may involve significant legal and other costs. Originator Companies tend to vigorouslydefend their products and may attempt to delay the launch of competing off-patent products by registering patentson slightly different versions of products for which the original patent protection is about to expire or has expired,with the aim of competing against the off-patent versions of the original product. The Originator Companies mayalso change the branding and marketing method of their products. Such actions may increase the Group's costs andthe risk it entails, and harm or even prevent its ability to launch new products.The Group is also exposed to legal claims that its products or production processes infringe on third-partyintellectual property rights. Such claims may involve time, costs, substantial damages and management resources,impair the value of the Group's brands and its sales and adversely affect its results. To the best of the Group’s currentknowledge, such lawsuits that were concluded involved non-material amounts.Furthermore, the Group protects its brands and trade secrets with patents, trademarks and other methods ofintellectual property protection, however these protective means may not be sufficient for safeguarding itsintellectual property. Any unlawful or other unauthorized use of the Group's intellectual property rights couldadversely affect the value of its intellectual property and goodwill. In addition, the Group may be required to takelegal action involving financial costs and resources to safeguard its intellectual property rights.Fluctuations in raw material inputs and prices, and in sales costsSignificant percentage of the cost of the Groups’ sales derives from raw material costs. Hence, significant increasesor decreases in raw material cost affect the cost of goods sold, which is generally expressed a number of monthsfollowing such cost fluctuation. Most of the Group's raw materials are distant derivatives of oil prices and therefore,extreme increase or decrease in oil prices may affect the costs of raw materials, yet only partially.To reduce exposure to fluctuations in the prices of raw materials, the Group customarily engages in long-termpurchase contracts for key raw materials, wherever possible. Similarly, the Group acts to adjust its sales prices, ifpossible, to reflect the changes in the costs of raw materials.As of the date of approval of the financial statements, the Group has not engaged in any hedging transactions againstincreases in oil and other raw material costs.

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Exposure due to recent developments in the genetically modified seeds marketAny further significant development in the market of genetically modified seeds for agricultural crops, including asa result of regulatory changes in certain countries currently prohibiting the use of genetically modified seeds, and/orany significant increase in the sales of genetically modified seeds or Glyphosate and/or to the extent new cropprotection products are developed for further crops that would be widely used (substituting traditional products),will affect demand for crop protection products, requiring the Group to respond by adapting its product portfolio tothe new demand structure. Consequently, to the extent that the Group fails to adapt its product mix accordingly, thismay reduce demand for its products, erode their sales price and necessarily affect the Group’s results and marketshare.Nevertheless, the fact that the Group itself markets Glyphosate acts to mitigate this exposure (albeit only in termsof marketing margins).Operational risksThe Group’s operations, including its manufacturing activities, rely, inter alia, on state-of-the-art computer systems.The Group continually invests in upgrading and protecting these systems. Any unexpected failure of these systems,as well as the integration of new systems, could involve substantial costs and adversely affect the Group's operationsuntil completion of the repair or integration. The potential occurrence of a substantial failure that cannot be repairedwithin a reasonable time frame may also affect the Group's operations and its results. Currently, the Group has aproperty and loss-of-profit insurance policy.Data protection and cyberDuring its activity, the Group may be exposed to risks and threats, related to the stability of its informationtechnologies systems, data protection and cyber, which could appear in many different forms (such as service denial,misleading employees, malfunction, encryption or data erasing and other cyber-attacks via E-mail or malicioussoftware). An attack on such computerized systems, mainly network based systems may cause the group materialdamages and expenses and even partial suspension and disruption of their proper functioning. In order to minimizethe abovementioned risks, the group invests resources in its technological strength and in proper protection of itssystems.Raw material supply and/or shipping and port services disruptionsLack of raw materials or other inputs utilized in the manufacture of Group products may prevent the Group fromsupplying its products or significantly increase production costs. Moreover, the Group imports raw materials to itsproduction facilities worldwide, from where it exports the products to its subsidiaries around the world forformulation and/or commercialization purposes. Disruptions in the supply of raw materials from regular suppliersmay adversely affect operations until an alternative supplier is engaged. If any of the Group's suppliers are unableto supply raw materials for a prolonged period, including due to ongoing disruptions and/or prolonged strikes and/orinfrastructure defects in the operating of a relevant port, and the Group is unable to engage with an alternativesupplier at similar terms and in accordance with product registration requirements, this may adversely affect theGroup's results, significantly affect its ability to obtain raw materials in general, or obtain them at reasonable prices,as well as limit its ability to supply products and/or meet customer supply deadlines. These might negatively affectthe Group, its finances and operating results. In order to reduce this risk, it is the Group's practice to occasionallyadjust the volume of its product inventories and at times utilize air freight.

Failed mergers and acquisitions; difficulties in integrating acquired operationsThe Group's strategy includes growth through mergers, acquisitions, investments and collaborations designed, in acalculated manner, to expand its product portfolio and deepen its presence in certain geographical markets.

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Growth through mergers and acquisitions requires assimilation of acquired operations and their effective integrationin the Group, including realization of certain forecasts, profitability, market conditions and competition.Failure to successfully implement the above and/or non-realization of the said forecasts may result in not achievingthe additional value forecasted, losing customers, exposure to unexpected liabilities, reduced value of the intangibleassets included in the merger or acquisition as well as the loss of professional and skilled human resources.Production concentration in limited plantsA large portion of the Group’s production operations is concentrated in a small number of locations. Naturaldisasters, hostilities, labor disputes, substantial operational malfunction or any other material damage mightsignificantly affect Group operations, as a result of the difficulty, the time and investment required for relocatingthe production operation or any other activity.International taxationMost of the Group’s sales are global, through its consolidated subsidiaries worldwide. These individual companiesare assessed in accordance with the tax laws effective in each respective location. The Group’s effective tax ratecould be significantly affected by different classification or attribution of the profits arise from the share of valueearned of the companies in the Group in the various countries, as shall be recognized in each tax jurisdiction;changes in the characteristics (including regarding the location of control and management) of these companies;changes in the breakdown of the Group's profits into regions where differing tax rates apply; changes in statutorytax rates and other legislative changes; changes in assessment of the Group's deferred tax assets or deferred taxliabilities; changes in determining the areas in which the Group is taxed; and potential changes in the Group'sorganizational structure.Changes in tax regulations and the manner of their implementation, including with regard to the implementation ofBEPS, may lead to a substantial increase in the Group's applicable tax rates and have a material adverse effect onits financial state, results and cash flows.The Group’s Financial Statements do not include a material provision for exposure for international taxation, asstated above.Risks arising from the Group’s debtThe Group finances its business operations by means of its own equity and loans from external sources (primarilydebentures issued by Solutions and bank credit). The Group's main source for servicing the debt and its operatingexpenses is by means of the profits from the Group companies’ operations. Restrictions applying to the Groupcompanies regarding distribution of dividends to the Group, or the tax rate applicable on these dividends, may affectthe Group's ability to finance its operations and service its debt.In addition, the Group's Finance Documents require it to meet certain Financial Covenants. Failure to meet thesecovenants due to an exogenous event or non-materialization of Group forecasts, and insofar as the financing partiesrefuse to extend or update these Financial Covenants as per the Group’s capabilities, may lead the financing partiesto demand the immediate payment of these liabilities (or part thereof).Exposure to customer credit risksThe Group’s sales to customers usually involve customer credit as is customary in each market. A portion of thesecredit lines are insured, while the remainder are exposed to risk, particularly during economic slowdowns in therelevant markets. The Group’s aggregate credit, however, is diversified among many customers in multiplecountries, mitigating this risk. In addition, in certain regions, particularly in South America, credit days areparticularly long (compared to those extended to customers in regions such as Europe), and on occasion, inter alia,owing to agricultural seasons or economic downturns in those countries, the Group may encounter difficulty incollection of customer debts, with the collection period being extended over several years.

ADAMA Ltd. Semi-Annual Report 2019

Generally, such issues arise more often in developing countries where the Group is less familiar with its customers,the collaterals might be in double until actual repayment and the insurance cover of these customers is likely to belimited. Credit default by any of the customers may negatively impact the Group's cash flow and financial results.The Group’s working capital and cash flow needsSimilar to other companies operating in the crop protection industry, the Group has substantial cash flow andworking capital requirements in the ordinary course of operations. In view of the Group's growth and consideringits primary growth regions, the Group’s broad product portfolio and the Group’s investments in manufacturinginfrastructures, the Group has significant financing and investment needs. The Group acts continually to improvethe state and management of its working capital. While currently the Group is in compliance with all its financialcovenants, significant deterioration of its operating results may in the future lead the Group to fail to comply withits financial covenants and fail to meet its financial needs. As a result, the Group's ability to meet its goals andgrowth plans, and its ability to meet its financial obligations, may be harmed.

(6) Other related information on environmental protection

At the end of January 2019, preceding the Spring Festival, the Company voluntarily suspended operations atSanonda’s old site in Jingzhou, which is in the process of being relocated to a nearby advanced site, due to recordingof higher than permitted levels of wastewater compounds. The Company was subsequently instructed by the localgovernment not to resume operations before rectification. The Company rectified the discharge levels and resumedoperations at the old site at the beginning of April 2019. For details, please see the announcement published onwww.cninfo.com.cn on February 13, 2019.Following resumption of operations at the Jingzhou old site in late March, the Company is advancing the gradualramp-up of production. The new state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility is operational, and the upgradedbiological-decomposition systems are being acclimated to the improved wastewater quality. As this progresses, theCompany is experiencing constrained supply in key products manufactured at the site, especially impacting NorthAmerica, Latin-America, Asia-Pacific, China, India, Middle-East and Africa, and recorded approximately $20million in related idleness costs during the half-year.In recent years, the Company has already invested $125 million in the relocation of the Jingzhou old site, and hasinstalled advanced production and environmental facilities at a new and already operational site, including aninvestment of $16 million in a new, state-of-the-art wastewater facility, which is ready to commence operation.As the ramp-up of production proceeds, the site continues to remain under inspection of the relevant authorities withwhom the Company is working in close and constant collaboration. In this regard, in recent weeks, the EcologicalProtection Supervision Team of the Central Government commenced on-site inspections at many of ChemChina’ssubsidiaries, including ADAMA, as part of its efforts to strengthen ongoing environmental and safety focus.ADAMA is working in full cooperation in the context of its 3-year relocation and upgrade process, which is due toconclude next year, to identify and rectify any safety or environmental issue at Jingzhou.

Assets and liabilities obtained shall be measured at theirrespective carrying amounts as recorded by the combining entities at the date of the combination. Thedifference between the carrying amount of the net assets obtained and the carrying amount of theconsideration paid for the combination is adjusted to the share premium in capital reserve. If the sharepremium is not sufficient to absorb the difference, any excess shall be adjusted against retained earnings.Costs that are directly attributable to the combination are charged to profit or loss in the period in which theyare incurred.

During March 2019, the acquisition of Jiangsu Anpon Electrochemical co. LTD. (Hereinafter – “Anpon”), awholly-owned subsidiary of CNAC, was successfully completed.

5.2 Business combinations not involving enterprises under common control and goodwill - (cont’d)

The acquiree’s identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities acquired by the acquirer in a businesscombination, that meet the recognition criteria shall be measured at fair value at the acquisition date. Wherethe cost of combination exceeds the acquirer’s interest in the fair value of the acquiree’s identifiable netassets, the difference is treated as an asset and recognized as goodwill, which is measured at cost on initialrecognition. Where the cost of combination is less than the acquirer’s interest in the fair value of theacquiree’s identifiable net assets, the remaining difference is recognized immediately in profit or loss for thecurrent year.

The goodwill raised because of the business combination should be separately disclosed in the consolidatedfinancial statement and measured by the initial amount less any accumulative impairment provision.

6. Basis for preparation of consolidated financial statements

The scope of consolidation in consolidated financial statements is determined on the basis of control. Controlis achieved when the Company has power over the investee; is exposed, or has rights, to variable returnsfrom its involvement with the investee; and has the ability to use its power to affect its returns.

For a subsidiary disposed of by the Group, the operating results and cash flows before the date of disposal(the date when control is lost) are included in consolidated income statement and consolidated statement ofcash flows.

For a subsidiary acquired through a business combination not involving enterprises under common control,the operating results and cash flows from the acquisition date (the date when control is obtained) are includedin consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of cash flows.

For a subsidiary acquired through a business combination involving enterprises under common control, itwill be fully consolidated into consolidated financial statements from the date on which the subsidiary wasultimately under common control by the same party or parties.

The significant accounting policies and accounting years adopted by the subsidiaries are determined basedon the uniform accounting policies and accounting years set out by the Company.

All significant intra-group balances, transactions and unrealized profits are eliminated on consolidation.

The portion of subsidiaries' equity that is not attributable to the Company is treated as non-controllinginterests and presented as "non-controlling interests" in the shareholders’ equity in consolidated balancesheet. The portion of net profits or losses of subsidiaries for the period attributable to non-controllinginterests is presented as "non-controlling interests" in consolidated income statement below the "net profit"line item. Total comprehensive income attributable to non-controlling shareholders is presented separatelyin the consolidated income statement below the total comprehensive income line item.

III SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES - (cont’d)

6. Basis for preparation of consolidated financial statements - (cont’d)

When the amount of loss for the period attributable to the non-controlling shareholders of a subsidiaryexceeds the non-controlling shareholders' portion of the opening balance of owners' equity of the subsidiary,the excess amount is still allocated against non-controlling interests.

Acquisition of non-controlling interests or disposal of equity interest in a subsidiary that does not result inthe loss of control over the subsidiary is accounted for as equity transactions. The carrying amounts of theCompany's interests and non-controlling interests are adjusted to reflect the changes in their relative interestsin the subsidiary. The difference between the amount by which the non-controlling interests are adjusted andthe fair value of the consideration paid or received is adjusted to capital reserve under owners' equity. If thecapital reserve is not sufficient to absorb the difference, the excess is adjusted against retained earnings.Other comprehensive income attributed to the non-controlling interest is reattributed to the shareholders ofthe company.

A put option issued by the Group to holders of non-controlling interests that is settled in cash or otherfinancial instrument is recognized as a liability at the present value of the exercise price. The Group’s shareof a subsidiary’s profits includes the share of the holders of the non-controlling interests to which the Groupissued a put option.

When the Group loses control over a subsidiary due to disposal of certain equity interest or other reasons,any retained interest is re-measured at its fair value at the date when control is lost. The difference between(i) the aggregate of the consideration received on disposal and the fair value of any retained interest and (ii)the share of the former subsidiary's net assets cumulatively calculated from the acquisition date according tothe original proportion of ownership interest is recognized as investment income in the period in whichcontrol is lost. Other comprehensive income associated with the disposed subsidiary is reclassified toinvestment income in the period in which control is lost.

7. Classification and accounting methods of joint arrangement

Joint arrangement involves by two or more parties jointly control. Joint control is the contractually agreedsharing of control over an economic activity, and exists only when the strategic financial and operatingdecisions relating to the activity require the unanimous consent of the parties sharing control (the ventures).

The Group makes the classification of the joint arrangements according to the rights and obligations in thejoint arrangements to either joint operations or joint ventures.

A joint venture is a joint arrangement whereby the parties that have joint control of the arrangement haverights to the net assets of the joint arrangement. Joint ventures are accounted for using the equity method.

9.1 Transactions denominated in foreign currencies

On initial recognition, foreign currency transactions are translated into functional currency using the spotexchange rate prevailing at the date of transaction.

At the balance sheet date, foreign currency monetary items are translated into functional currency using thespot exchange rates at the balance sheet date. Exchange differences arising from the differences between thespot exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date and those on initial recognition or at the previousbalance sheet date are recognized in profit or loss for the period, except that (i) exchange differences relatedto a specific-purpose borrowing denominated in foreign currency that qualify for capitalization arecapitalized as part of the cost of the qualifying asset during the capitalization period. (ii) exchange differencesrelated to hedging instruments for the purpose of hedging against foreign currency risks are accounted forusing hedge accounting.

When preparing financial statements involving foreign operations, if there is any foreign currency monetaryitems, which in substance forms part of the net investment in the foreign operations, exchange differencesarising from the changes of foreign currency are recorded as other comprehensive income, and will bereclassified to profit or loss upon disposal of the foreign operations.

Foreign currency non-monetary items measured at historical cost are translated to the amounts in functionalcurrency at the spot exchange rates on the dates of the transactions and the amounts in functional currencyremain unchanged.

9.2 Translation of financial statements denominated in foreign currency

For the purpose of preparing consolidated financial statements, financial statements of a foreign operationare translated from the foreign currency into RMB using the following method: assets and liabilities on thebalance sheet are translated at the spot exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date; shareholders' equityitems except for retained earnings are translated at the spot exchange rates at the dates on which such itemsarose; all items in the income statement as well as items reflecting the distribution of profits are translated ataverage rate or at the spot exchange rates on the dates of the transactions; the opening balance of retainedearnings is the translated closing balance of the previous year's retained earnings; the closing balance ofretained earnings is calculated and presented on the basis of each translated income statement and profitdistribution item. The difference between the translated assets and the aggregate of liabilities andshareholders' equity items is recorded as other comprehensive income. Cash Flows arising from transactionin foreign currency and the cash flows of a foreign subsidiary are translated at the spot exchange rate on thedate of the cash flow, the effect of exchange rate changes on the cash and cash equivalents is regarded as areconciling item and present separately in the statement “effect of foreign exchange rate changes on the cashand cash equivalents".

The opening balances and the comparative figures of prior year are presented at the translated amounts inthe prior year's financial statements.

On disposal of the Group's entire equity interest in a foreign operation, or upon a loss of control over aforeign operation due to disposal of certain equity interest in it or other reasons, the Group transfers theaccumulated translation differences, which are attributable to the owners' equity of the Company andpresented under other comprehensive income to profit or loss in the period in which the disposal occurs.

In case of a disposal or other reason that does not result in the Group losing control over a foreign operation,the proportionate share of accumulated translation differences are re-attributed to non-controlling interestsand are not recognized in profit and loss. For partial disposals of equity interest in foreign operations, whichare associates or joint ventures, the proportionate share of the accumulated translation differences arereclassified to profit or loss.

10. Financial instruments

The Group recognizes a financial asset or a financial liability when it becomes a party to the contractualprovisions of the instrument. At initial recognition, the Group measures a financial asset or financial liabilityat its fair value plus or minus, in the case of a financial asset or financial liability not at fair value throughprofit or loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the financial assetor financial liability. At initial recognition, an entity shall measure trade receivables at their transaction priceif the trade receivables do not contain a significant financing component.

10.1 Classification and measurement of financial assets

After initial recognition, an entity shall measure a financial asset at: (a) amortised cost; (b) fair value throughother comprehensive income (“FVTOCI”); or (c) fair value through profit or loss (“FVTPL”).

10.1.1 Financial assets at amortised cost

A financial asset is measured at amortised cost if both of the following conditions are met:

(a) the financial asset is held within a business model whose objective is to hold financial assets in order tocollect contractual cash flows; and (b) the contractual terms of the financial asset give rise on specified datesto cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding.

Such financial assets are subsequently measured at amortised cost, using effective interest method. Gains orlosses upon impairment and derecognition are recognized in profit or loss.

10.1.1.1 Effective interest method and amortised cost

Effective interest method represents the method for calculating the amortized costs and interest income orexpense of each period in accordance with the effective interest rate of financial assets or financial liabilities(inclusive of a set of financial assets or financial liabilities). Effective interest rate represents the rate thatdiscounts the future cash flow over the expected subsisting period or shorter period, if appropriate, of thefinancial asset or financial liability to the current carrying value of such financial asset or financial liability.

When calculating the effective interest rate, the Group will consider the anticipated future cash flow (notconsidering the future credit loss) on the basis of all contract clauses of financial assets or financial liabilities,as well as consider all kinds of charges which are an integral part of the effective interest rate, includingtransaction fees and discount or premium paid or received between both parties of financial asset or financialliability contract.

10.1.2 Financial assets at FVTOCI

A financial asset is measured at fair value through other comprehensive income if both of the followingconditions are met: (a) the financial asset is held within a business model whose objective is achieved byboth collecting contractual cash flows and selling financial assets and (b) the contractual terms of thefinancial asset give rise on specified dates to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest onthe principal amount outstanding.

A gain or loss on a financial asset measured at fair value through other comprehensive income is recognizedin other comprehensive income, except for impairment gains or losses, foreign exchange gains and lossesand interest calculated using the effective interest method, until the financial asset is derecognized orreclassified. When the financial asset is derecognized the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized inother comprehensive income is reclassified from equity to profit or loss as a reclassification adjustment.

10.1.3 Financial assets at FVTPL

Financial assets at FVTPL are either those that are classified as financial assets at FVTPL or designated asfinancial assets at FVTPL.

A financial asset is measured at FVTPL unless it is measured at amortised cost or at FVTOCI.

The Group may, at initial recognition, irrevocably designate a financial asset as measured at FVTPL if doingso eliminates or significantly reduces a measurement or recognition inconsistency (sometimes referred to asan ‘accounting mismatch’) that would otherwise arise from measuring assets or liabilities or recognizing thegains and losses on them on different bases.

A gain or loss on a financial asset that is measured at FVTPL is recognized in profit or loss unless it is partof a hedging relationship. Dividends are recognized in profit or loss.

10.1.4 Designated financial assets at FVTOCI

At initial recognition, the Group makes an irrevocable election to designate to FVTOCI an investment in anequity instrument that is not held for trading.

When a non-trading equity instrument investment is designated as a financial asset that is measured at fairvalue through other comprehensive income, the changes in the fair value of the financial asset are recognisedin other comprehensive income. Upon realization the accumulated gains or losses from other comprehensiveincome are transferred from other comprehensive income and included in retained earnings. During theperiod in which the Group holds these non-trading investment instruments, the right to receive dividends inthe Group has been established, and the economic benefits related to dividends are likely to flow into theGroup, and when the amount of dividends can be reliably measured, the dividend income is recognized inthe current profit and loss.

10.2 Impairment of financial assets

The Group recognizes a loss allowance for expected credit losses on financial assets that are classified toamortised cost and FVTOCI.

The Group always measures the loss allowance at an amount equal to lifetime expected credit losses for tradereceivables.

For financial assets other than trade receivables, the Group initially measure the loss allowance for thatfinancial instrument at an amount equal to 12-month expected credit losses. At each balance sheet date, if thecredit risk on that financial instrument has increased significantly since initial recognition, the Groupmeasures the loss allowance for a financial instrument at an amount equal to the lifetime expected creditlosses. The Group recognizes in profit or loss, as an impairment gain or loss, the amount of expected creditlosses (or reversal) that is required to adjust the loss allowance to the amount that is required to be recognized.

10.2.1 Significant increases in credit risk

At each balance sheet date, the Group assesses whether the credit risk on a financial instrument has increasedsignificantly since initial recognition.

The Group mainly considers the following list of information in assessing changes in credit risk:

(a) significant changes in internal price indicators of credit risk as a result of a change in credit risk sinceinception.(b) significant changes in external market indicators of credit risk for a particular financial instrument orsimilar financial instruments with the same expected life.(c) a significant change in the debtors’ ability to meet its debt obligations.(d) an actual or expected significant change in the operating results of the debtor.(e) significant increases in credit risk on other financial instruments of the same debtor.(f) an actual or expected significant adverse change in the regulatory, economic, or technological

environment of the debtor.(g) significant changes in the value of the collateral supporting the obligation or in the quality of third-

party guarantees or credit enhancements, which are expected to reduce the debtor’s economic

incentive to make scheduled contractual payments or to otherwise have an effect on the probability

of a default occurring.(h) significant changes that are expected to reduce the receivable’s economic incentive to make

scheduled contractual payments.(i) significant changes in the expected performance and behaviour of the debtor.(j) past due information.

The Group assumes that the credit risk on a financial instrument has not increased significantly since initialrecognition if the financial instrument is determined to have low credit risk at the reporting date.

10.2 Impairment of financial assets - (cont’d)

10.2.2 Credit-impaired financial asset

A financial asset is credit-impaired when one or more events that have a detrimental impact on the estimatedfuture cash flows of that financial asset have occurred. Evidence that a financial asset is credit-impairedinclude observable data about the following events:

(a) significant financial difficulty of the issuer or the receivable;

(b) a breach of contract, such as a default or past due event;(c) the lender(s) of the receivable, for economic or contractual reasons relating to the receivable’s financialdifficulty, having granted to the receivable a concession(s) that the lender(s) would not otherwiseconsider;(d) it is becoming probable that the receivable will enter bankruptcy or other financial reorganization;

10.2.3 Recognition of expected credit losses

For the purpose of determining significant increases in credit risk and recognizing a loss allowance on acollective basis, financial instruments are grouped on the basis of shared credit risk. Examples of sharedcredit risk characteristics may include, but are not limited to, the:(a) instrument type; (b) credit risk ratings;(c) collateral type; (d) industry; (e) geographical location of the debtor; and (f) the value of collateral relativeto the financial asset if it has an impact on the probability of a default occurring.

Expected credit losses of financial instruments are determined as the present value of the difference between:

(a) the contractual cash flows that are due to an entity under the contract; and (b) the cash flows that the entityexpects to receive.

For a financial asset that is credit-impaired at the reporting date, an entity shall measure the expected creditlosses as the difference between the asset’s gross carrying amount and the present value of estimated futurecash flows discounted at the financial asset’s original effective interest rate. Any adjustment is recognized inprofit or loss as an impairment gain or loss.

The Group measures expected credit losses of a financial instrument in a way that reflects:

(a) an unbiased and probability-weighted amount that is determined by evaluating a range of possible

outcomes;(b) the time value of money; and(c) reasonable and supportable information that is available without undue cost or effort at the reportingdate about past events, current conditions and forecasts of future economic conditions.

10.2.4 Written-off of financial assets

The Group directly reduces the gross carrying amount of a financial asset when the entity has no reasonableexpectations of recovering a financial asset in its entirety or a portion thereof. A write-off constitutes aderecognition event.

10.3 Transfer of financial asset

The Group derecognizes a financial asset if one of the following conditions is satisfied: (i) the contractualrights to the cash flows from the financial asset expire; or (ii) the financial asset has been transferred andsubstantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the financial asset is transferred to the transferee; or(iii) although the financial asset has been transferred, the Group neither transfers nor retains substantially allthe risks and rewards of ownership of the financial asset but has not retained control of the financial asset.

If the Group neither transfers nor retains substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of a financialasset, and it retains control of the financial asset, it recognizes the financial asset to the extent of its continuinginvolvement in the transferred financial asset and recognizes an associated liability. The extent of the Group’scontinuing involvement in the transferred asset is the extent to which it is exposed to changes in the value ofthe transferred asset.

When the company is derecognizing a financial asset in its entirety, except for equity instrument designatedto FVTOCI, the difference between (i) the carrying amount of the financial asset transferred; and (ii) the sumof the consideration received from the transfer is recognized in profit or loss.

10.4 Classification and measurement of financial liabilities

Debt and equity instruments are classified as either financial liabilities or as equity in accordance with thesubstance of the contractual arrangements and the definitions of a financial liability and an equity instrument.

All financial liabilities are subsequently measured at FVTPL or other financial liabilities.

Financial liabilities are classified as at FVTPL when the financial liability is (i) held for trading or (ii) it isdesignated as at FVTPL. The financial liability other than derivative financial liabilities are stated asliabilities held for trading.

Other financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortized cost by using effective interest method.Gain or loss arising from derecognition or amortization is recognized in current profit or loss.

10.5 Derecognition of financial liabilities

Financial liabilities are derecognized in full or in part only when the present obligation is discharged in fullor in part. An agreement entered into force between the Group (debtor) and a creditor to replace the originalfinancial liabilities with new financial liabilities with substantially different terms, derecognize the originalfinancial liabilities as well as recognize the new financial liabilities. When financial liabilities is derecognizedin full or in part, the difference between the carrying amount of the financial liabilities derecognized and theconsideration paid (including transferred non-cash assets or new financial liability) is recognized in profit orloss for the current period.

10.6 Derivatives

Derivative financial instruments include forward exchange contracts, currency swaps and foreign exchangeoptions, etc. Derivatives are initially measured at fair value at the date when the derivative contracts areentered into and are subsequently re-measured at fair value. The resulting gain or loss is recognized in profitor loss unless the derivative is designated and highly effective as a hedging instrument, in which case thetiming of the recognition in profit or loss depends on the nature of the hedge relationship (Note III 28.1).

10.7 Offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities

Financial assets and financial liabilities shall be presented separately in the balance sheet and shall not beoffset, except for circumstances where the Group has a legal right that is currently enforceable to offset therecognized financial assets and financial liabilities, and intends either to settle on a net basis, or to realize thefinancial asset and settle the financial liability simultaneously, a financial asset and a financial liability shallbe offset and the net amount is presented in the balance sheet.

10.8 Equity instruments

The consideration received from the issuance of equity instruments net of transaction costs is recognized inshareholders’ equity. Consideration and transaction costs paid by the Company for repurchasing self-issuedequity instruments are deducted from shareholders’ equity.

When the Company repurchases its own shares, those shares are treated as treasury shares. All expendituresrelating to the repurchase are recorded in the cost of the treasury shares, with the transaction entering into theshare capital. Treasury shares are excluded from profit distributions and are stated as a deduction undershareholders’ equity in the balance sheet.

11. Receivable

Receivables are assessed for impairment on a collective group and/or on an individual basis as follows:

Expected credit losses in respect of a receivable is measured at an amount equal to lifetime expected creditlosses. The assessment is made collectively for account receivables, where receivables share similar creditrisk characteristics based on geographical location, using the expected credit losses model including inter-alia aging analysis, historical loss experiences adjusted by the observable factors reflecting current andexpected future economic conditions. The ratio of the collective provision for non-overdue accountreceivables is between 0%-1.4%.

When credit risk on a receivable has increased significantly since initial recognition, the group recordsspecific provision or collective provision, which is determined for groups of similar assets in countries inwhich there are large number of customers with immaterial balances.

In assessing whether the credit risk on a receivable has increased significantly since initial recognition, theGroup compares the risk of a default occurring on the receivable at the reporting date with the risk of adefault occurring on the receivable at the date of initial recognition and considers both quantitative andqualitative information that is reasonable and supportable, including observable data that comes to theattention of the Group about loss events such as a significant decline in the solvency of an individual debtoror the portfolio of debtors, and significant changes in the financial condition that have an adverse effect onthe debtor.

12. Inventories

12.1 Categories of inventories and initial measurement

The Group's inventories mainly include raw materials, work in progress, semi-finished goods, finished goodsand reusable materials. Reusable materials include low-value consumables, packaging materials and othermaterials, which can be used repeatedly but do not meet the definition of fixed assets.

Inventories are initially measured at cost. Cost of inventories comprises all costs of purchase, costs ofconversion and other expenditures incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and conditionincluding direct labor costs and an appropriate allocation of production overheads.

12.2 Valuation method of inventories upon delivery

The actual cost of inventories upon delivery is calculated using the weighted average method.

12.3 Basis for determining net realizable value of inventories and provision methods for decline in value of

inventories

At the balance sheet date, inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value. If the netrealizable value is below the cost of inventories, a provision for decline in value of inventories is made. Netrealizable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs ofcompletion, the estimated costs necessary to make the sale and relevant taxes.

After the provision for decline in value of inventories is made, if the circumstances that previously causedinventories to be written down below cost no longer exist so that the net realizable value of inventories ishigher than their carrying amount, the original provision for decline in value is reversed and the reversal isincluded in profit or loss for the period.

12.4 The perpetual inventory system is maintained for stock system.

13. Long-term equity investments

Long-term equity investments include investments in subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates.

Subsidiaries are the companies that are controlled by the Company. Associates are the companies over whichthe Group has significant influence. Joint ventures are joint arrangements over which the Group has jointcontrol along with other investors and has rights to the net assets of the joint arrangement.

The Company accounts for the investment in subsidiaries at historical cost in the Company's financialstatements. Investments in associates and joint ventures are accounted for under equity method.

13.1 Determination of investment cost

For a long-term equity investment acquired through a business combination involving enterprises undercommon control, the investment cost of the long-term equity investment is the share of the carrying amountof the shareholders' equity of the acquiree attributable to the ultimate controlling party at the date ofcombination. For a long-term equity investment acquired through business combination not involvingenterprises under common control, the investment cost of the long-term equity investment is the cost ofacquisition. For a business combination not involving enterprises under common control achieved in stagesthat involves multiple exchange transactions, the initial investment cost is carried at the aggregate of thecarrying amount of the acquirer’s previously held equity interest in the acquiree and the new investment costincurred on the acquisition date.

Regarding the long-term equity investment acquired otherwise than through a business combination, if thelong-term equity investment is acquired by cash, the historical cost is determined based on the amount ofcash paid and payable; if the long-term equity investment is acquired through the issuance of equityinstruments, the historical cost is determined based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued.

13. Long-term equity investments - (cont’d)

13.2 Subsequent measurement and recognition of profit or loss

If the long-term equity investment is accounted for at cost, it should be measured at historical cost lessaccumulated impairment losses. Dividend declared by the investee should be accounted for as investmentincome.

Under the equity method, where the initial investment cost of a long-term equity investment exceeds theGroup’s share of the fair value of the investee’s identifiable net assets at the time of acquisition, noadjustment is made to the initial investment cost. Where the initial investment cost is less than the Group’sshare of the fair value of the investee’s identifiable net assets at the time of acquisition, the difference isrecognized in profit or loss for the period, and the cost of the long-term equity investment is adjustedaccordingly.

Under the equity method, the Group recognizes its share of the net profit or loss and other comprehensiveincome of the investee for the period as investment income or loss and other comprehensive income for theperiod. The Group recognizes its share of the investee’s net profit or loss based on the fair value of theinvestee’s individual separately identifiable assets, etc. at the acquisition date after making appropriateadjustments to be confirmed with the Group's accounting policies and accounting period. The Groupdiscontinues recognizing its share of net losses of the investee after the carrying amount of the long-termequity investment together with any long-term interests that in substance form part of its net investment inthe investee is reduced to zero. If the Group has incurred obligations to assume additional losses of theinvestee, a provision is recognized according to the expected obligation, and recorded as investment loss forthe period.

13.3 Basis for determining control, joint control and significant influence over investee

Control is achieved when the Company has power over the investee; is exposed, or has rights, to variablereturns from its involvement with the investee; and has the ability to use its power to affect its returns.

Joint control is the contractually agreed sharing of control over an economic activity, and exists only whenthe strategic financial and operating policy decisions relating to the activity require the unanimous consentof the parties sharing control.

Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions of the investeebut is not control or joint control over those policies.

When determining whether an investing enterprise is able to exercise control or significant influence overan investee, the effect of potential voting rights of the investee (for example, warrants and convertible debts)held by the investing enterprises or other parties that are currently exercisable or convertible shall beconsidered.

13.4 Methods of impairment assessment and determining the provision for impairment loss

If the recoverable amounts of the investments to subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates are less than theircarrying amounts, an impairment loss should be recognized to reduce the carrying amounts to the recoverableamounts (Note III 20).

13.5 The disposal of long-term equity investment

On disposal of a long term equity investment, the difference between the proceeds actually received andreceivable and the carrying amount is recognized in profit or loss for the period.

14. Investment properties

Investment property refers to real estate held to earn rentals or for capital appreciation, or both, includingleased land use rights, land use rights held and provided for transferring after appreciation and leasedconstructions, etc.

Investment property is initially measured at cost. Subsequent expenditures related to an investment propertyshall be included in cost of investment property only when the economic benefits associated with the assetwill likely flow to the Group and its cost can be measured reliably. All other subsequent expenditures oninvestment property shall be included in profit or loss for the current period when incurred.

The Group adopts cost method for subsequent measurement of investment property, which is depreciated oramortized using the same policy as that for buildings and land use rights.

When an investment property is sold, transferred, retired or damaged, the amount of proceeds on disposal ofthe property net of the carrying amount and related taxes and surcharges is recognized in profit or loss forthe current period.

15. Fixed assets

15.1 Recognition criteria for fixed assets

Fixed assets include land owned by the Group and buildings, machinery and equipment, transportationvehicles, office equipment and others.

Fixed assets are tangible assets that are held for use in the production or supply of goods or for administrativepurposes, and have useful lives of more than one accounting year. A fixed asset is recognized only when itis probable that economic benefits associated with the asset will flow to the Group and the cost of the assetcan be reliably measured. Purchased or constructed fixed assets are initially measured at cost when acquired.

Subsequent expenditures incurred for the fixed asset are included in the cost of the fixed asset and if it isprobable that economic benefits associated with the asset will flow to the Group and the subsequentexpenditures can be measured reliably. Other subsequent expenditures are recognized in profit or loss in theperiod in which they are incurred.

15.2 Depreciation of each category of fixed assets

Fixed asset is depreciated based on the cost of fixed asset recognized less expected net residual value overits useful life using the straight-line method since the month subsequent to the one in which it is ready forintended use. Depreciation is calculated based on the carrying amount of the fixed asset after impairmentover the estimated remaining useful life of the asset.

The Group reviews the useful life and estimated net residual value of a fixed asset and the depreciationmethod applied at least once at each financial year-end, and account for any change as a change in anaccounting estimate.

The estimated useful life, estimated net residual value and annual depreciation rate of each category of fixedassets are as follows:

Category Depreciation

15.3 Other explanations

If a fixed asset is upon disposal or no future economic benefits are expected to be generated from its use ordisposal, the fixed asset is derecognized. When a fixed asset is sold, transferred, retired or damaged, theamount of any proceeds on disposal of the asset net of the carrying amount and related taxes is recognizedin profit or loss for the period.

The difference between recoverable amounts of the fixed assets under the carrying amount is referred to asimpairment loss (Note III 20).

16. Construction in progress

Construction in progress is measured at its actual costs. The actual costs include various construction,installation costs, borrowing costs capitalized and other expenditures incurred until such time as the relevantassets are completed and ready for its intended use. When the asset concerned is ready for its intended use,the cost of the asset is transferred to fixed assets and depreciated starting from the following month.

The difference between recoverable amounts of the construction in progress under the carrying amount isreferred to as impairment loss (Note III 20).

III SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES - (cont’d)

17. Borrowing costs

Borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of qualifying asset arecapitalized when expenditures for such asset and borrowing costs are incurred and activities relating to theacquisition, construction or production of the asset that are necessary to prepare the asset for its intended useor sale have commenced. Capitalization of borrowing costs ceases when the qualifying asset being acquired,constructed or produced becomes ready for its intended use or sale. Borrowing costs incurred subsequentlyshould be charged to profit or loss. Capitalization of borrowing costs is suspended during periods in whichthe acquisition, construction or production of a qualifying asset is suspended abnormally and when thesuspension is for a continuous period of more than 3 months. Capitalization is suspended until the acquisition,construction or production of the asset is resumed.

Where funds are borrowed under a specific-purpose borrowing, the amount of interest to be capitalized isthe actual interest expenses incurred on that borrowing for the period less any bank interest earned fromdepositing the borrowed funds before being used on the asset or any investment income on the temporaryinvestment of those funds.

Where funds are borrowed under general-purpose borrowings, the Group determines the amount of interestto be capitalized on such borrowings by applying a capitalization rate to the weighted average of the excessof cumulative expenditures on the asset over the amounts of specific-purpose borrowings. The capitalizationrate is the weighted average of the interest rates applicable to the general-purpose borrowings.

During the capitalization period, exchange differences on foreign currency specific-purpose borrowing arefully capitalized whereas exchange differences on foreign currency general-purpose borrowing is charged toprofit or loss.

18. Intangible assets

18.1 Valuation methods, useful life, impairment test

The Group’s intangible assets include product registration assets, intangible assets upon purchase of products,marketing rights and rights to use trademarks, land use rights and software. Intangible assets are stated at thebalance sheet at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment losses.

When an intangible asset with a finite useful life is available for use, its original cost less any accumulatedimpairment losses is amortized over its estimated useful life using the straight-line method. An intangibleasset with an indefinite useful life is not amortized.

For an intangible asset with a finite useful life, the Group reviews the useful life and amortization method atthe end of the year, and makes adjustments when necessary.

The respective amortization periods for such intangible assets are as follows:

ItemAmortization period(years)
Land use rights49-50 years
Product registration8 years
Intangible assets on purchase of products7-11, 20 years
Tradename and trademarks4-10, 30 years
Software3-5 years
Customer relations5-10years

The difference between recoverable amounts of the intangible assets under the carrying amount is referredto as impairment loss (see Note III 20).

18.2 Research and development expenditure

Internal research and development project expenditures were classified into research expenditures anddevelopment expenditures depending on its nature and the greater uncertainty whether the research activitiesbecoming to intangible assets.

Expenditure during the research phase is recognized as an expense in the period in which it is incurred.Expenditure during the development phase that meets all of the following conditions at the same time isrecognized as intangible asset:

- It is technically feasible to complete the intangible asset so that it will be available for use or sale;- The Group has the intention to complete the intangible asset and use or sell it;- The Group can demonstrate the ways in which the intangible asset will generate economic benefits;- The availability of adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and theability to use or sell the intangible asset;- The expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development phase can be reliablymeasured.

Expenditures that do not meet all of the above conditions at the same time are recognized in profit or losswhen incurred. If the expenditures cannot be distinguished between the research phase and developmentphase, the Group recognizes all of them in profit or loss for the period. Expenditures that have previouslybeen recognized in the profit or loss would not be recognized as an asset in subsequent years. Thoseexpenditures capitalized during the development stage are recognized as development costs incurred andwill be transferred to intangible asset when the underlying project is ready for an intended use.

19. Goodwill

The initial cost of goodwill represents the excess of cost of acquisition over the acquirer’s interest in the fairvalue of the identifiable net assets of the acquiree under a business combination not involving enterprisesunder common control.

Goodwill is not amortized and is stated in the balance sheet at cost less accumulated impairment losses (seeNote III 20). On disposal of an asset group

or a set of asset groups, any attributable goodwill is written offand included in the calculation of the profit or loss on disposal.

20. Impairment of long-term assets

The Company assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that the fixed assets,construction in progress, right of use assets, intangible assets with finite useful lives, investment propertiesmeasured at historical cost, investments in subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates may be impaired. Ifthere is any indication that such assets may be impaired, recoverable amounts are estimated for such assets.The recoverable amount of an asset is the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and the present value of thefuture cash flow estimated to be derived from the asset. The Group estimates the recoverable amount on anindividual basis. If it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of the individual asset, the Groupdetermines the recoverable amount of the asset group to which the asset belongs. Identification of an assetgroup is based on whether major cash inflows generated by the asset group are largely independent of thecash inflows from other assets or asset groups.

20. Impairment of long-term assets - (cont’d)

Goodwill arising from a business combination is tested for impairment at least at each year end, irrespectiveof whether there is any indication that the asset may be impaired. For the purpose of impairment testing, thecarrying amount of goodwill acquired in a business combination is allocated from the acquisition date on areasonable basis to each of the related asset groups; if it is impossible to allocate to the related asset groups,it is allocated to each of the related set of asset groups. Each of the related asset groups or set of asset groupsis an asset group or set of asset group that is able to benefit from the synergies of the business combinationand shall not be larger than a reportable segment determined by the Group. If the carrying amount of theasset group or set of asset groups is higher than its recoverable amount, the amount of the impairment lossfirst reduced by the carrying amount of the goodwill allocated to the asset group or set of asset groups, andthen the carrying amount of other assets (other than the goodwill) within the asset group or set of asset groups,pro rata based on the carrying amount of each asset.

Once the impairment loss of such assets is recognized, it will not be reversed in any subsequent period.

21. Employee benefits

21.1 Short-term employee benefits

Employee wages or salaries, bonuses, social security contributions, measured on a non-discounted basis, andthe expense is recorded when the related service is provided. A provision for short-term employee benefitsin respect of cash bonuses is recognized in the amount expected to be paid where the Group has a currentlegal or constructive obligation to pay the said amount for services provided by the employee in the past andthe amount can be estimated reliably.

21.2 Post-employment benefits

Post-employment benefits are classified into defined contribution plans and defined benefit plans.

A defined contribution plan is a post-employment benefit plan under which the Group pays contributions toa separate entity and has no legal or constructive obligation to pay further amounts. Obligations forcontributions to defined contribution plans are recognized as an expense in profit or loss in the periods duringwhich related services are rendered by employees.

Defined benefit plans of the Group are post-employment benefit plans other than defined contribution plans.In accordance with the projected unit credit method, the Group measures the obligations under definedbenefit plans using unbiased and mutually compatible actuarial assumptions to estimate related demographicvariables and financial variables, and discount obligations under the defined benefit plans to determine thepresent value of the defined benefit liability. The discount rate used is the yield on the reporting date onhighly-rated corporate debentures denominated in the same currency, that have maturity dates approximatingthe terms of the Group’s obligation.

The Group attributes benefit obligations under a defined benefit plan to periods of service provided byrespective employees. Service cost and interest expense on the defined benefit liability are charged to profitor loss and remeasurements of the defined benefit liability are recognized in other comprehensive income.

21. Employee benefits - (cont’d)

.312 Termination benefits

When the Group terminates the employment with employees or provides compensation under an offer toencourage employees to accept voluntary redundancy, a provision is recognized with a correspondingexpense in profit or loss at the earlier of the following dates:

- When the Group cannot unilaterally withdraw the offer of termination benefits because of an employeetermination plan or a curtailment proposal.- When the Group has a formal detailed restructuring plan involving the payment of termination benefitsand has raised a valid expectation in those affected that it will carry out the restructuring by starting toimplement that plan or announcing its main features to those affected by it.

If the benefits are payable more than 12 months after the end of the reporting period, they are discounted totheir present value. The discount rate used is the yield on the reporting date on highly-rated corporatedebentures denominated in the same currency, that have maturity dates approximating the terms of theGroup’s obligation.

21.4 Other long-term employee benefits

The Group’s net obligation for long-term employee benefits, which are not attributable to post-employmentbenefit plans, is for the amount of the future benefit to which employees are entitled for services that wereprovided during the current and prior periods.

The amount of these benefits is discounted to its present value and the fair value of the assets related to theseobligations is deducted therefrom. The discount rate used is the yield on the reporting date on highly-ratedcorporate debentures denominated in the same currency, that have maturity dates approximating the termsof the Group’s obligation.

22. Share-based payment

Share-based payment refers to the transaction in order to acquire the service offered by the employees orother parties that grants equity instruments or liabilities on the basis of the equity instruments. Share-basedpayment classified into equity-settled share-based payment and cash-settled share-based payment.

22.1 Cash-settled share-based payment

The cash-settled share-based payment should be measured according to the fair value of the liabilitiesrecognized based on the shares or other equity instrument undertaken by the Company. For cash-settledshare-based payment made in return for the rendering of employee services that cannot be exercised untilthe services are fully provided during the vesting period or specified performance targets are met, on eachbalance sheet date within the vesting period, the services acquired in the current period shall, based on thebest estimate of the number of exercisable instruments, be recognized in relevant expenses and thecorresponding liabilities at the fair value of the liability incurred by the Company.

On each balance sheet date and the settlement date before the settlement of the relevant liabilities, theCompany should re-measure the fair value of the liabilities and the changes should be included in the currentperiod profit and loss.

III SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES - (cont’d)

23. Provisions

Provisions are recognized when the Group has a present obligation related to a contingency, it is probablethat an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation, and the amount of the obligationcan be measured reliably.

The amount recognized as a provision is the best estimate of the consideration required to settle the presentobligation at the settlement date, taking into account factors pertaining to a contingency such as the risks,uncertainties and time value of money. Where the effect of the time value of money is material, the amountof the provision is determined by discounting the related future cash outflows. The increase in the provisiondue to passage of time is recognized as interest expense.

If all or part of the provision settlements is reimbursed by third parties, when the realization of income isvirtually certain, then the related asset should be recognized. However, the amount of related assetrecognized should not be exceeding the respective provision amount.

At the balance sheet date, the amount of provision should be re-assessed to reflect the best estimation then.

24. Revenue

Revenue of the Group is mainly from sale of goods.

The Group recognizes revenue when transferring goods to a customer, at the amount of the transaction price.Goods are considered transferred when the customer obtains control of the goods. Transaction price is theamount of consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods to acustomer, excluding amounts collected on behalf of third parties.

Significant financing component

For a contract with a significant financing component, the Group recognize revenue at an amount that reflectsthe price that a customer would have paid for the goods if the customer had paid cash for those goods atreceipt. The difference between the amount of consideration and the cash selling price of the goods, isamortized in the contract period using effective interest rate. The Group does not adjust the amount ofconsideration for the effects of a significant financing component if the Group expects, at contract inception,that the period between when the entity transfers a good to a customer and when the customer pays for thatgood will be one year or less.

Sale with a right of return

For sale with a right of return, the Group recognizes revenue at the amount of consideration to which theGroup expects to be entitled (ie excluding the products expected to be returned). For any amounts received(or receivable) for which an entity does not expect to be entitled, the entity shall not recognize revenue whenit transfers products to customers but shall recognize those amounts received (or receivable) as a refundliability. An asset recognized for the Group’s right to recover products from a customer on settling a refundliability shall initially be measured by reference to the former carrying amount of the product less anyexpected costs to recover those products.

25. Government grants

Government grants are transfer of monetary assets and non-monetary assets from the government to theGroup at no consideration, including tax returns, financial subsidies and so on. A government grant isrecognized only when the Group can comply with the conditions attached to the grant and the Group willreceive the grant.

If a government grant is in the form of a transfer of a monetary asset, it is measured at the amount receivedor receivable. If a government grant is in the form of a non-monetary asset, it is measured at fair value. Ifthe fair value cannot be reliably determined, it is measured at a nominal amount.

Government grants are either related to assets or income.

(1) The basis of judgment and accounting method of the government grants related to assets

Government grants obtained for acquiring long-term assets are government grants related to assets. Agovernment grant related to an asset is offset with the cost of the relevant asset.

(2) The basis of judgment and accounting method of the government grants related to income

For a government grant related to income, if the grant is a compensation for related expenses or losses to beincurred in subsequent periods, the grant is recognized as deferred income, and recognized in profit or lossover the periods in which the related costs are recognized. If the grant is a compensation for related expensesor losses already incurred, the grant is recognized immediately in profit or loss for the period.

Government grants related to the Group’s normal course of business are offset with related costs andexpenses. Government grants related that are irrelevant with the Groups’s normal course of business areincluded in non-operating gains.

26. Current and deferred tax

The income tax expenses include current income tax and deferred income tax.

26.1 Current income tax

At the balance sheet date, current income tax liabilities (or assets) for the current and prior periods aremeasured at the amount expected to be paid (or recovered) according to the requirements of tax laws.

26.2 Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities

Temporary differences are differences between the carrying amounts of certain assets or liabilities and theirtax base.

All taxable temporary differences are recognized as related deferred tax liabilities. Deferred tax assets arerecognized to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which thedeductible losses and tax credits can be utilized.

26.2 Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities - (cont’d)

For deductible losses and tax credits that can be carried forward, deferred tax assets are recognized to theextent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the deductible losses andtax credits can be utilized. However, for deductible temporary differences associated with the initialrecognition of goodwill and the initial recognition of an asset or liability arising from a transaction (not abusiness combination) that affects neither the accounting profit nor taxable profits (or deductible losses) atthe time of transaction, no deferred tax asset or liability is recognized.

At the balance sheet date, deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates, according to taxlaws, that are expected to apply in the period in which the asset is realized or the liability is settled.

Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences associated with investments insubsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Group is able to control thetiming of the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will notreverse in the foreseeable future.

The Group may be required to pay additional tax in case of distribution of dividends by the Group companies.This additional tax was not included in the financial statements, since the policy of the Group is not todistribute in the foreseeable future a dividend which creates a significant additional tax liability.

Except for those current income tax and deferred tax charged to comprehensive income or shareholders’equity in respect of transactions or events which have been directly recognized in other comprehensiveincome or shareholders’ equity, and deferred tax recognized on business combinations, all other currentincome tax and deferred tax items are charged to profit or loss in the current period.

At the balance sheet date, the carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed and reduced if it is no longerprobable that sufficient taxable profits will be available in the future to allow the benefit of deferred taxassets to be utilized. Such reduction is reversed when it becomes probable that sufficient taxable profits willbe available.

26.3 Offset of income tax

When the Group has a legal right to settle current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis, and tax assets andtax liabilities relate to income taxes levied by the same taxation authority on either the same taxable entity ordifferent taxable entities which intend to realize the assets and liabilities simultaneously, current tax assetsand liabilities are offset and presented on a net basis.

When the Group has a legal right to settle deferred tax assets and liabilities on a net basis which relates toincome taxes levied by the same taxation authority, on either the same taxable entity or different taxableentities which intend either to settle current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis or to realize the assets andliabilities simultaneously, in each future period in which significant amounts of deferred tax assets orliabilities are expected to be reversed, deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities are offset and presentedon a net basis.

27. Leases

Lease is a contract, that conveys the right to use an asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration.

27.1 Determining whether an arrangement contains a lease

On the inception date of the lease, the Group determines whether the arrangement is a lease or contains alease, while assessing if it conveys the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time inexchange for consideration. In its assessment of whether an arrangement conveys the right to control theuse of an identified asset, the Group assesses whether it has the following two rights throughout the leaseterm:

(a) The right to obtain substantially all the economic benefits from use of the identified asset; and(b) The right to direct the identified asset’s use.An arrangement does not contain a lease if an asset is leased for a period of less than 12 months, or to lease ofasset with low economic value.

27.2 Initial recognition of leased assets and lease liabilities

Upon initial recognition, the Group recognizes a liability at the present value of future lease payments(exclude certain variable lease payments, as detailed in note III 27.4), and concurrently the Grouprecognizes a right-of-use asset at the same amount, adjusted for any prepaid lease payments paid at thelease date or before, plus initial direct costs incurred in respect of the lease.When the interest rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable, the incremental borrowing rate ofthe lessee is used.The Group presents right-of-use assets separately from other assets in the balance sheet.

27.3 The lease term

The lease term is the non-cancellable period of the lease plus periods covered by an extension ortermination option, if it is reasonably certain that the lessee will exercise or not exercise the option,respectively.If there is a change in the lease term, or in the assessment of an option to purchase the underlying asset, theGroup remeasures the lease liability, on the basis of the revised lease term and the revised discount rateand adjust the right-of-use assets accordingly.

27.4 Variable lease payments

Variable lease payments that depend on an index or a rate, are initially measured using the index or rateexisting at the commencement of the lease. When the cash flows of future lease payments change as theresult of a change in an index or a rate, the balance of the liability is adjusted with a correspondencechange in the right-of-use asset.Other variable lease payments that are not included in the measurement of the lease liability are recognizedin profit or loss in the period in which the condition that triggers payment occurs.

27.5 Subsequent measurement

After lease commencement, a right-of-use asset is measured on a cost basis less accumulated depreciationand accumulated impairment losses and is adjusted for re-measurements of the lease liability. The asset isdepreciated on a straight-line basis over the useful life or contractual lease period, whichever earlier.The Group applies ASBE8 Impairment of Assets, to determine whether the right-of-use asset is impairedand to account for any impairment loss identified.A lease liability is measured after the lease commencement date at amortized cost using the effectiveinterest method.

28. Other significant accounting policies and accounting estimates

28.1 Hedging

The Group uses derivative financial instruments to hedge its risks related to foreign currency and inflationrisks and derivatives that are not used for hedging.

Hedge accounting

The Group makes an assessment, both at the inception of the hedge relationship as well as on an ongoingbasis, whether the hedge is expected to be effective in offsetting the changes in the fair value of cash flowsthat can be attributed to the hedged risk during the period for which the hedge is designated.

An effective hedge exists when all of the below conditions are met:

? There is an economic relationship between the hedged item and the hedging instrument;? the effect of credit risk does not dominate the value changes that result from that economic relationship;? the hedge ratio of the hedging relationship is the same as that resulting from the quantity of the hedged

item that the entity actually hedges and the quantity of the hedging instrument that the entity actuallyuses to hedge that quantity of hedged item.

On the commencement date of the accounting hedge, the Group formally documents the relationship between thehedging instrument and hedged item, including the Group’s risk management objectives and strategy in executingthe hedge transaction, together with the methods that will be used by the Group to assess the effectiveness of thehedging relationship.

With respect to a cash-flow hedge, a forecasted transaction that constitutes a hedged item must be highlyprobable and must give rise to exposure to changes in cash flows that could ultimately affect profit or loss.

Measurement of derivative financial instruments

Derivative financial instruments are recognized initially at fair value; attributable transaction costs arerecognized in profit or loss as incurred.

28. Other significant accounting policies and accounting estimates - (cont’d)

28.1 Hedging (cont’d)

Cash-flow hedges

Subsequent to the initial recognition, changes in the fair value of derivatives used to hedge cash flows arerecognized through other comprehensive income directly in a hedging reserve, with respect to the part of thehedge that is effective. Regarding the portion of the hedge that is not effective, the changes in fair value arerecognized in profit and loss. The amount accumulated in the hedging reserve is reclassified to profit andloss in the period in which the hedged cash flows impact profit or loss and is presented in the same line itemin the statement of income as the hedged item.

If the hedging instrument no longer meets the criteria for hedge accounting, expires or is sold, terminated orexercised, the hedge accounting is discontinued. The cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in ahedging reserve through other comprehensive income remains in the reserve until the forecasted transactionoccurs or is no longer expected to occur. If the forecasted transaction is no longer expected to occur, thecumulative gain or loss in respect of the hedging instrument in the hedging reserve is reclassified to profitor loss.

Economic hedge

Hedge accounting is not applied with respect to derivative instruments used to economically hedge financialassets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency or CPI linked. Changes in the fair value of suchderivatives are recognized in profit or loss as gain (loss) from changes in fair value or investment income.

Derivatives that are not used for hedging

Changes in the fair value of derivatives that are not used for hedging are recognized in profit or loss as gain(loss) from changes in fair value or investment income.

28.2 Securitization of assets

Details of the securitization of asset agreements and accounting policy are set out in Note V.5 - Accountreceivables

For operating leases before the initial application date, the Group adopts the simplifyingapproaches below for each lease:

- When determining lease liabilities, the same discount rate will be used for leases with similar

characteristics;- For leases with options to extend or terminate, the Group determines the lease term based onthe actual exercise of options before the initial application date and other most updatedinformation;- As a substitute of impairment test for right-of-use assets, the Group applies ASBE13

Contingencies, to assess if the contract containing a lease is a loss contract and adjust the

right of-use assets based on the loss incurred at the initial application date.- For lease modifications before the initial application date, the Group makes accounting

treatments based on the final lease arrangements after the lease modification.

On January 1, 2019, as a result of the implementation of the standard, the lease liabilities increasedby 506,862 thousands RMB, and right-of-

leases before the initial application date, the Group measures the lease liability at the present valueof the lease payments, with the incremental borrowing rate as the discount rate. The borrowingrates are between 1.9% to 6.1%.

In preparation of 2019 interim financial report, the Group began to adopt the Notice on Revisingthe Format of 2019 Financial Statements for General Enterprises

III SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES - (cont’d)

30. Significant accounting estimates and judgments

The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions thataffect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income andexpenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. Estimates as well as underlying assumptions anduncertainties involved are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognizedin the period in which the estimate is revised and in any future periods affected.

Notes V.34, Note VIII, Note IX and Note XIII contain information about the assumptions and their riskfactors relating to post-employment benefits – defined benefit plans, fair value of financial instruments andshare-based payments. Other key sources of estimation uncertainty are as follows:

30.1 Impairment of trade receivables

As described in Note III.11, trade receivables are reviewed at each balance sheet date to determine whethercredit risk on a receivable has increased significantly since initial recognition, lifetime expected losses isaccrued for impairment provision. Evidence of impairment includes observable data that comes to theattention of the Group about loss events such as a significant decline in the solvency of an individual debtoror the portfolio of debtors, and significant changes in the financial condition that have an adverse effect onthe debtor. If there is objective evidence of a recovery in the value of receivables which can be relatedobjectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognized, the previously recognized impairmentloss is reversed.

30.2 Provision for impairment of inventories

As described in Note III.12, the net realisable value of inventories is under management’s regular review,and as a result, provision for impairment of inventories is recognized for the excess of inventories’ carryingamounts over their net realisable value. When making estimates of net realisable value, the Group takes intoconsideration the use of inventories held on hand and other information available to form the underlyingassumptions, including the inventories’ market prices and the Group’s historical operating costs. The actualselling price, the costs of completion and the costs necessary to make the sale and relevant taxes may varybased on the changes in market conditions and product saleability, manufacturing technology and the actualuse of the inventories, resulting in the changes in provision for impairment of inventories. The net profit orloss may then be affected in the period when the impairment of inventories is adjusted.

30.3 Impairment of assets other than inventories and financial assets

As described in Note III.20, if impairment indication exists, assets other than inventories and financial assetsare assessed at balance sheet date to determine whether the carrying amount exceeds the recoverableamount of the assets. If any such case exists, an impairment loss is recognized.

The recoverable amount of an asset (or an asset group) is the greater of its fair value less costs to sell and itspresent value of expected future cash flows. Since a market price of the asset (or the asset group) cannot beobtained reliably, the fair value of the asset cannot be estimated reliably, the recoverable amount is calculatedbased on the present value of estimated future cash flows. In assessing the present value of estimated futurecash flows, significant judgements are exercised over the asset’s production, selling price, related operatingexpenses and discount rate to calculate the present value. All relevant materials which can be obtained areused for estimation of the recoverable amount, including the estimation of the production, selling price andrelated operating expenses based on reasonable and supportable assumptions.

30.4 Depreciation and amortisation of assets such as fixed assets and intangible assets

As described in Note III.15 and III.18, assets such as fixed assets and intangible assets are depreciated andamortised over their useful lives after taking into account residual value. The estimated useful lives of theassets are regularly reviewed to determine the depreciation and amortisation costs charged in each reportingperiod. The useful lives of the assets are determined based on historical experience of similar assets and theestimated technical changes. If there have been significant changes in the factors used to determine thedepreciation or amortisation, the rate of depreciation or amortisation is revised prospectively.

30.5 Income taxes and deferred income tax

The Company and Group companies are assessed for income tax purposes in a large number of jurisdictionsand, therefore, Company management is required to use considerable judgment in determining the totalprovision for taxes and attribution of income.

When assessing whether there will be sufficient future taxable profits available against which the deductibletemporary differences can be utilised, the Group recognizes deferred tax assets to the extent that it is probablethat future taxable profits will be available against which the deductible temporary differences can be utilised,using tax rates that would apply in the period when the asset would be utilised. In determining the amount ofdeferred tax assets, the Group makes reasonable judgements and estimates about the timing and amount oftaxable profits to be utilised in the following periods, and of the tax rates applicable in the future accordingto the existing tax policies and other relevant regulations. If the actual timing and amount of future taxableprofits or the actual applicable tax rates differ from the estimates made by management, the differences affectthe amount of tax expenses.

When assessing the possible outcomes of legal claims filed against the Company and its investee companies,the company positions are based on the opinions of their legal advisors. These assessments by the legaladvisors are based on their professional judgment, considering the stage of the proceedings and the legalexperience accumulated regarding the various matters. Since the results of the claims will be determined bythe courts, the outcomes could be different from the assessments.

In addition to the said claims, the Group is exposed to unasserted claims, inter alia, where there is doubt asto interpretation of the agreement and/or legal provision and/or the manner of their implementation. Thisexposure is brought to the Company’s attention in several ways, among others, by means of contacts madeto Company personnel. In assessing the risk deriving from the unasserted claims, the Company relies oninternal assessments by the parties dealing with these matters and by management, who weigh assessment ofthe prospects of a claim being filed, and the chances of its success, if filed. The assessment is based onexperience gained with respect to the filing of claims and the analysis of the details of each claim. By theirnature, in view of the preliminary stage of the clarification of the legal claim, the actual outcome could bedifferent from the assessment made before the claim was filed.

30.7 Employee benefits

The Group’s liabilities for long-term post-employment and other benefits are calculated according to theestimated future amount of the benefit to which the employee will be entitled in consideration for his servicesduring the current period and prior periods. The benefit is stated at present value net of the fair value of theplan’s assets, based on actuarial assumptions. Changes in the actuarial assumptions could lead to materialchanges in the book value of the liabilities and in the operating results.

30.8 Derivative financial instruments

The Group enters into transactions in derivative financial instruments for the purpose of hedging risks relatedto foreign currency and inflationary risks. The derivatives are recorded at their fair value. The fair value ofderivative financial instruments is based on quotes from financial institutions. The reasonableness of thequotes is examined by discounting the future cash flows, based on the terms and length of the period tomaturity of each contract, while using market interest rates of a similar instrument as of the measurementdate. Changes in the assumptions and the calculation model could lead to material changes in the fair valueof the assets and liabilities and in the results.

e. Derecognition of accounts receivable due to transfer of financial assets - (cont'd)

The maximum scope of the securitization is adjusted for the seasonal changes in the scope of the Company’sactivities, as follows: during the months March through June the maximum scope of the securitization is$350 million (as of June 30, 2019 - 2,406 million RMB), during the months July through September themaximum scope of the securitization is $300 million (as of June 30, 2019 - 2,062 million RMB) and duringthe months October through February the maximum scope of the securitization is $250 million (as of June30, 2019 - 1,719 million RMB). The proceeds received from those customers whose debts were sold are usedfor acquisition of new trade receivables.

The price at which the trade receivables debts are sold is the amount of the debt sold less a discount calculatedbased on, among other things, the expected length of the period between the date of sale of the tradereceivable and its anticipated repayment date. In the month following acquisition of the debt, the AcquiringCompany pays in cash most of the debt while the remainder is recorded as a subordinated note that is paidafter collection of the debt sold. If the customer does not pay its debt on the anticipated repayment date, theCompany bears interest up to the earlier of the date on which the debt is actually repaid or the date on whichdebt collection is transferred to the insurance company (the actual costs are not significant and are notexpected to be significant).

The Acquiring Company bears 95% of the credit risk in respect of the customers whose debts were sold andwill not have a right of recourse to the Company in respect of the amounts paid in cash, except regardingdebts with respect to which a commercial dispute arises between the companies and their customers, that is,a dispute the source of which is a claim of non-fulfillment of an obligation of the seller in the supplyagreement covering the product, such as: a failure to supply the correct product, a defect in the product,delinquency in the supply date, and the like.

The Acquiring Company appointed a policy manager who will manage for it the credit risk involved withthe trade receivables sold, including an undertaking with an insurance company.

Pursuant to the Receivables Servicing Agreement, the Group subsidiaries handle collection of the tradereceivables as part of the Securitization Transaction for the benefit of the Acquiring Company.

As part of the agreement, Solutions is committed to comply with certain financial covenants, mainly the ratioof the liabilities to equity and profit ratios. As of June 30, 2019, Solutions was in compliance with thefinancial covenants.

The accounting treatment of sale of the trade receivables included as part of the Securitization Program is:

The Company is not controlling the Acquiring Company, therefore the Acquiring Company is notconsolidated in the financial statements.

The Company continues to recognize the trade receivables included in the Securitization Program based onthe extent of its continuing involvement therein.

In respect of the part of the trade receivables included in the securitization Program with respect to whichcash proceeds were not yet received, however regarding which the Company has transferred the credit risk,a subordinated note is recorded.

The continuing involvement and subordinated note recorded in the balance sheet as part of the “otherreceivables” line item.

The loss from sale of the trade receivables is recorded at the time of sale in the statement of income in the“financing expenses” line item.

In the fourth quarter of 2016, a subsidiary in Brazil (hereinafter - “the subsidiary”) entered into a 3 yearssecuritization transaction with Rabobank Brazil for sale of trade receivables. Under the agreement, thesubsidiary will sell its trade receivables to a securitization structure (hereinafter - “the entity”) that wasformed for this purpose where the subsidiary has subordinate rights of 5% of the entity's capital.

The maximum securitization scope amounts to BRL 200 million (as of June 30, 2019 - 359 million RMB).

On the date of the sale of the trade receivables, the entity pays the full amount which is the debt amount soldnet of discount calculated, among others, over the expected length of the period between the date of sale ofthe customer receivable and its anticipated repayment date.

The entity bears 90% of the credit risk in respect of the customers whose debts were sold such that the entityhas the right of recourse of 10% of the unpaid amount. The subsidiary should make a pledged deposit equalto the amount the entity’s right of recourse.

The subsidiary handles the collection of receivables included in the securitization for the entity.

The subsidiary does not control the entity and therefore the entity is not consolidated in the group's financialstatements.

The subsidiary continues to recognize the trade receivables sold to the entity based on the extent of itscontinuing involvement therein (10% right of recourse) and also recognizes an associated liability in thesame amount.

The loss from the sale of the trade receivables is recorded at the time of sale in the statement of income inthe “financing expenses” category.

VIII. Risk Related to Financial Instruments

A. General

The Group has extensive international operations, and, therefore, it is exposed to credit risks, liquidity risksand market risks (including currency risk, interest risk and other price risk). In order to reduce the exposureto these risks, the Group uses financial derivatives instruments, including forward transactions and options(hereinafter - “derivatives”).

Transactions in derivatives are undertaken with major financial institutions, and therefore, in the opinion ofGroup Management the credit risk in respect thereof is low.

This note provides information on the Group’s exposure to each of the above risks, the Group’s objectives,policies and processes regarding the measurement and management of the risk. Additional quantitativedisclosure is included throughout the consolidated financial statements.

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for establishing and monitoring the framework of the Group'srisk management policy. The Finance Committee is responsible for establishing and monitoring the Group'sactual risk management policy. The Chief Financial Officer reports to the Finance Committee on a regularbasis regarding these risks.

The Group’s risk management policy, established to identify and analyze the risks facing the Group, to setappropriate risk limits and controls, and to monitor risks and adherence to limits. The policy and methods formanaging the risks are reviewed regularly, in order to reflect changes in market conditions and the Group'sactivities. The Group, through training, and management standards and procedures, aims to develop adisciplined and constructive control environment in which all the employees understand their roles andobligations.

B. Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Group if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument failsto meet its contractual obligations, and derives mainly from trade receivables and other receivables as well asfrom cash and deposits in financial institutions.

Accounts and other receivables

The Group’s revenues are derived from a large number of widely dispersed customers in many countries.Customers include multi-national companies and manufacturing companies, as well as distributors,agriculturists, agents and agrochemical manufacturers who purchase the products either as finished goods oras intermediate products for their own requirements.

The Company entered into an agreement for the sale of trade receivables in a securitization transaction, fordetails see note V.5e.

In April 2018, a two-years agreement with an international insurance company was renewed. The amount ofthe insurance coverage was fixed at $150 million cumulative per year. The indemnification is limited to about90% of the debt.

The Group’s exposure to credit risk is influenced mainly by the personal characterization of each customer,and by the demographic characterization of the customer’s base, including the risk of insolvency of theindustry and geographic region in which the customer operates. No single customer accounted for greater than5% of total accounts receivable.

VIII. Risk Related to Financial Instruments - (cont’d)

B. Credit risk - (cont’d)

The Company management has prescribed a credit policy, whereby the Company performs current ongoingcredit evaluations of existing and new customers, and every new customer is examined thoroughly regardingthe quality of his credit, before offering him the Group’s customary shipping and payment terms. Theexamination made by the Group includes an outside credit rating, if any, and in many cases, receipt ofdocuments from an insurance company. A credit limit is prescribed for each customer, outstanding amount ofthe accounts receivable balance. These limits are examined annually. Customers that do not meet the Group’scriteria for credit quality may do business with the Group on the basis of a prepayment or against furnishingof appropriate collateral.

Most of the Group’s customers have been doing business with it for many years. In monitoring customer creditrisk, the customers were grouped according to a characterization of their credit, based on geographical location,industry, aging of receivables, maturity, and existence of past financial difficulties. Customers defined as “highrisk” are classified to the restricted customer list and are supervised by management. In certain countries,mainly, Brazil, customers are required to provide property collaterals (such as agricultural lands and equipment)against execution of the sales, the value of which is examined on a current ongoing basis by the Company. Inthese countries, in a case of expected credit risk, the Company records a provision for the amount of the debtless the value of the collaterals provided and acts to realize the collaterals.

The Group closely monitors the economic situation in Eastern Europe and South America where necessary itoperates to limit its exposure to customers in countries having significantly unstable economies.

The Group recognizes an impairment provision, which reflects its assessment regarding the credit risk ofaccount receivables. Other receivables and investments on a lifetime expected credit loss basis. See also notesⅢ.10 and Ⅲ.11.

Cash and deposits in banks

The Company holds cash and deposits in banks with a high credit rating. These banks are also required tocomply with capital adequacy or maintain a level of security based on different situations.

Guarantees

The Company’s policy is to provide financial guarantees only to investee companies.

B. Credit risk - (cont’d)

The company measure the provision for credit losses on a collective group basis, where receivables sharesimilar credit risk characteristics based on geographical locations. The examination for expected credit lossesis performed using model including aging analysis and historical loss experiences, and adjusted by theobservable factors reflecting current and expected future economic conditions.When credit risk on a receivable has increased significantly since initial recognition, the group records specificprovision or general provision which is determined in countries in which there are large number of customerswith immaterial balances.The Group has credit risk exposures for accounts receivables amounted to RMB 7,478,332 thousand relate tocategory of "Lifetime expected credit losses (credit losses has not occurred)" and amounted to RMB 629,633thousand related to category of "Lifetime expected credit losses (credit losses occurred)". The Group has creditrisk exposures for other receivables amounted to RMB 14,832 thousand related to category of "Lifetimeexpected credit losses (credit losses occurred)". The credit risk exposures for all remaining balance of financialassets at amortised cost and financial assets at FVTOCI are related to "12-month expected credit losses".

C. Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Group will encounter difficulty in meeting its financial obligation when theycome due. The Group's approach to managing its liquidity risk is to assure, to the extent possible, an adequatedegree of liquidity for meeting its obligations timely, under ordinary conditions and under pressure conditions,without sustaining unwanted losses or hurting its reputation.

The cash-flow forecast is determined both at the level of the various entities as well as of the consolidatedlevel. The Company examines the current forecasts of its liquidity requirements in order to ascertain that thereis sufficient cash for the operating needs, including the amounts required in order to comply with the financialliabilities, while taking strict care that at all times there will be unused credit frameworks so that the Companywill not exceed the credit frameworks granted to it and the financial covenants with which it is required tocomply with. These forecasts take into consideration matters such as the Company’s plans to use debt forfinancing its activities, compliance with required financial covenants, compliance with certain liquidity ratiosand compliance with external requirements such as laws or regulation.

The surplus cash held by the Group subsidiaries, which is not required for financing the current ongoingoperations, is invested in short-term interest-bearing investment channels.

D. Market risks

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices, such as foreign exchange rates, CPI, interest rates andprices of capital instruments, will affect the Group’s revenues or the value of its holdings in its financialinstruments. The objective of market risk management is to manage and monitor the exposure to market riskswithin acceptable parameters, while optimizing the return.

During the ordinary course of business, the Group purchases and sells derivatives and assumes financialliabilities for the purpose of managing market risks.

(1) CPI and foreign currency risks

Currency risk

The Group is exposed to currency risk from its sales, purchases, expenses and loans denominated in currenciesthat differ from the Group’s functional currency. The main exposure is in Euro, Brazilian real, USD and inNIS. In addition, there are smaller exposures to various currencies such as the British pound, Polish zloty,Australian dollar, Indian rupee, Argentine peso, Canadian dollar, South African Rand, Ukraine Hryunia, theTurkish lira and Chinese Yuan Renminbi.

The Group uses foreign currency derivatives – forward transactions and currency options – in order to hedgethe cash flows risk, which derive from existing monetary assets and liabilities and anticipated sales andpurchases, which may be affected by exchange rate fluctuations.

VIII. Risk Related to Financial Instruments - (cont’d)

D. Market risks - (cont’d)

(1) CPI and foreign currency risks - (cont’d)

The Group hedged a part of the estimated currency exposure to anticipate sales and purchases for thesubsequent year. Likewise, the Group hedges most of its monetary assets and liabilities denominated in anon- U.S. dollar currency. The Group uses foreign currency derivatives to hedge its currency risk, mostly withmaturity dates of less than one year from the reporting date.

Solutions debentures are linked to the NIS-CPI and, therefore, an increase in the NIS-CPI, as well as changesin the NIS exchange rate, could cause significant exposure with respect to the subsidiary functional currency– the U.S. dollar. As of the approval date of the financial statements, the subsidiary had hedged most of itsexposure deriving from issuance of the debentures, in options and forward contracts.

(2) Interest rate risks

The Group has exposure to changes in the variable interest rate. The Group has different assets andliabilities in different countries which bear interest according to the economic environment in each country.Most of the loans, other than the debentures, bear Dollar Libor interest. As a result, most of the variableinterest exposure of those loans is to the Libor interest. Due to market conditions, the variable interestrates on cash are relatively low.

The Company prepares a quarterly summary of exposure to a change in the Libor interest rate. As at theapproval date of the financial statements, the Company had not hedged this exposure.

Notes to the Financial Statements

IX. Fair Value

The fair value of forward contracts on foreign currency is based on their listed market price, if available. In theabsence of market prices, the fair value is estimated based on the discounted difference between the statedforward price in the contract and the current forward price for the residual period until redemption, using anappropriate interest rate.

The fair value of foreign currency options is based on bank quotes. The reasonableness of the quotes is evaluatedthrough discounting future cash flow estimates, based on the conditions and duration to maturity of each contract,using the market interest rates of a similar instrument at the measurement date and in accordance with the Black& Scholes model.

1. Financial instruments measured at fair value for disclosure purposes only

The carrying amount of certain financial assets and liabilities, including cash at bank and on hand, bills andaccounts receivable, receivables financing, other receivables, derivatives financial assets, short-term loans, billsand accounts payable and other payable, are the same or proximate to their fair value.

3. Fair value hierarchy of financial instruments measured at fair value

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transactionbetween market participants at the measurement date. The table below presents an analysis of financialinstruments measured at fair value. The various levels have been defined as follows:

? Level 1: quoted prices (unadjusted) in active market for identical instrument.? Level 2: inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly.? Level 3: inputs that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

The Company’s forward contracts and options are carried at fair value and are evaluated by observable inputsand therefore are concurrent with the definition of level 2.

Environmental protection

The manufacturing processes of the Company, and the products it produces and markets, entail environmentalrisks that impact the environment. The Company invests substantial resources in order to comply with theapplicable environmental laws and attempts to prevent or minimize the environmental risks that could occur asa result of its activities. To the best of the Company’s knowledge, at the balance sheet date, none of its applicablepermits and licenses with respect to environmental issues have been revoked.

At the end of January 2019, the Company voluntarily suspended operations at Sanonda’s old site in Jingzhou,which is in the process of being relocated to a nearby advanced site, due to recording of higher than permittedlevels of wastewater compounds. The Company was subsequently instructed by the local government not toresume operations before rectification. The Company rectified the discharge levels and at the beginning of April2019 resumed operations at the old site. Following the resumption, the Company is advancing the gradual ramp-up of production. As the ramp-up of production proceeds, the site continues to remain under inspection of therelevant authorities with whom the Company is working in close and constant collaboration.

Claims against subsidiaries

In the ordinary course of business, legal claims are filed against subsidiaries, including lawsuits, regardingclaims for patent infringement. Inter alia, from time to time, the Company, similar to other companies operatingin the plant protection industry, is exposed to class actions for large amounts, which it must defend against whileincurring considerable costs, even if these claims, from the start, have no basis. In the estimation of theCompany’s management, based, inter alia, on opinions of its legal counsel regarding the prospects of theproceedings, the financial statements include appropriate provisions where necessary to cover the exposureresulting from the claims.

Various immaterial claims have been filed against Group companies in courts throughout the world, inimmaterial amounts, for causes of action involving mainly employee-employer relations and various civil claims,for which the Company did not record a provision in the financial statements. Furthermore, claims were filedfor product liability damages, for which the Company has appropriate insurance coverage, such that theCompany’s exposure in respect thereof is limited to the amount its deductible requirement or the amount thereofdoes not exceed the deductible amount.
