BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IRSA Inversiones y Representaciones S.A. (NYSE: IRS; BASE: IRSA), the leading real estate company in Argentina, today announces its results for the first nine months of Fiscal Year 2016 Ended March 31, 2016
Consolidation of IDB Development Corporation
On October 11, 2015, the Group obtained control of the Israeli company IDB Development Corporation Ltd. ("IDBD"). During the past quarter, the investment was consolidated in the balance sheet, and as from this third quarter of fiscal year 2016, it is also disclosed at income statement level. IDBD's fiscal year-end is on December 31 of each year, whereas the Company's is on June 30. Moreover, in compliance with Israeli regulations, IDBD reports its quarterly and annual results after the expiration of the Argentine statutory terms. For such reasons, the Company will be unable to have available IDBD's quarterly results as and when due in order to report them to the CNV in its financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2016. Thus, the Company will consolidate results from IDBD's operations with a three-month mismatch adjusted for the effects of material transactions occurred during the reported period. In this way, the results of IDBD's operations for the period running from October 11, 2015 (date of acquisition) until December 31, 2015 are included in the interim comprehensive results of the Group for the nine-month period ended on March 31, 2016, except for material transactions considered. The Company estimates a similar mismatch in obtaining IDBD's results in the succeeding periods.
IDBD is one of the largest and most diversified holding companies in Israel. Through its subsidiaries, associates, joint ventures and other investments, IDBD is engaged in numerous markets and industry sectors in Israel and other countries, including real estate (Property & Building Corporation), supermarkets (Shufersal), agroindustry (Adama), insurance (Clal Holdings Insurance Enterprises, hereinafter Clal), and telecommunications (Cellcom). After the closing of this quarter, IDBD's shares were delisted from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange ("TASE"). However, the company will continue to be registered with the TASE as a "Debentures Company" pursuant to Israeli law, as it has bonds listed in such exchange.
Significant assets have been added in various industries in which the Group did not have investments until to date, as well as liabilities for loans taken by IDBD and its subsidiaries.
The company is conducting the "Purchase Price Allocation" process, which is expected to be completed on June 30, 2016.
We have decided to break down reporting into an Argentine Operating Center and an Israeli Operating Center. From the Argentine Operating Center, the Group, through IRSA and its subsidiaries, manages the businesses in Argentina and the international investments in the Lipstick Building in New York and the Condor Hospitality Trust hotel REIT. From the Israeli Operating Center, the Group manages IDBD.
