Our expectation is that this price pressure will continue throughout 2022. These price movements primarily impact our web o?set printing division > In response we have moved quickly to shore up supply and believe it is prudent to increase our paper inventory holdings as foreshadowed at the time of our full year results in August. IVE has long term strong relationships with all major international paper suppliers. > We are working closely with our clients to manage/mitigate “flow through” cost adjustments as required > We are con?dent that the majority of these recent paper cost increases will be passed through to clients 12 Annual General Meeting 23 November 2021 Major H2 initiatives Active Display Group (ADG) and AFI Branding Solutions (AFI) acquisition and integration > Acquisition metrics — The acquisition of ADG and AFI completed on 1st November 2021 for consideration of $6.5m. $5.2m of the consideration paid on completion, with $1.3m of the total payable as deferred consideration based on the achievement of agreed revenue targets over a 24 month period — The acquisitions are expected to contribute annual revenues of circa $45m, additional EBITDA of $6.5m and NPAT of $4m (2.8 cents per share), post the full integration of both ADG and AFI into IVE’s existing operations — The integration of both businesses will commence in November 2021 and will be complete by June 30, 2022. — These acquisitions signi?cantly expanded our third party logistics (3PL) and retail display businesses as well as further diversifying our o?ering into fabric printing (AFI) — This is our ?rst acquisition since the Salmat transaction in January 2020. The $5.2m acquisition (excluding deferred consideration) represents the company’s initial investment in growth initiatives as previously communicated > Update — The announcement of these acquisitions has been very well received by clients and all sta? that are now IVE employees — Finalization of integration planning is near complete, the business is an excellent cultural ?t — Sales teams across the group are already working together to identify cross sell opportunities across the broader Group — Sales momentum across the businesses is strong, particularly in AFI, a leading supplier to the events sector, which is expected to rebound in 2022 13 Annual General Meeting 23 November 2021 Victorian site consolidation It is important to note that IVE has duplicate operations for all parts of the business across both NSW and Victoria. Over the last two years and the current year we have invested signi?cantly on our Victorian site consolidation program. This will result in IVE having only two operating precincts across greater Melbourne, driving further e?iciencies and enhanced client service: > Our Sunshine facilities across three co-located buildings total 52,000 sqm, which is the base for our web o?set printing operations and letterbox distribution hub 14 Annual General Meeting 23 November 2021 > The new Braeside precinct across four co-located buildings also totalling 52,000 sqm — Our sheetfed & digital printing and DDC operations currently across 2 buildings in Clayton since 2006 will relocate to Building 1 (18,000 sqm) in early 2022 — Building 2 (13,000 sqm) will be used for the expansion of our logistics and ful?lment business, including the integration of ADG’s 3PL operations. Construction of this building is due to complete by the end of January 2022 — Our retail display business was relocated from Sunshine to Building 3 (7000 sqm) in late 2020. The ADG and AFI retail display operations will be integrated into this business — Our ful?lment and logistics business was relocated from multiple buildings in Clayton to Building 4 (14,000sqm) in late 2019 4 1 2 3 15 Annual General Meeting 23 November 2021 Outlook The solid underlying fundamentals of the business, combined with the strength of our balance sheet, place IVE in an ideal position to deliver growth as we emerge from this period of COVID disruption > The ?nancial performance of the business on revenue, EBITDA and NPAT for the 4 months to 31 October 2021 is signi?cantly up on the same period last year > As illustrated in the FY22 YTD results, heightened operating leverage across the business will underpin earnings growth as revenue returns > Strong revenue momentum continues and we remain optimistic this will continue over the remainder of the FY22 year driven by post lockdown economic recovery > We will closely manage paper supply chain pressures which we expect to continue through the balance of FY22 > IVE is well positioned to pass through paper price increases to clients. Due to contractual timing di?erences, we expect a one o? NPAT impact of circa $2m in FY22 > The recent acquisitions of ADG and AFI at very low multiples represent the initial deployment of the $30-40m we have available to drive earnings accretive growth initiatives. In addition to organic growth initiatives, we would anticipate attractive acquisition opportunities will present over the coming 12-24 months > Capital management — The Group will continue to maintain our strong balance sheet position (circa 1.5x pre AASB 16 EBITDA or below) — Dividend policy remains unchanged — The Company’s dividend policy seeks to pay strong dividends at sustainable levels, targeting a full year payout ratio of 65-75% of NPAT > Capital expenditure — Full year capital expenditure expected to be $10m excluding Lasoo phase 1 investment of $3.5m — Capital expenditure to continue at approximately 60% of annual depreciation Thank you IVE Group Limited ABN 62 606 252 644 Level 3, 35 Clarence Street Sydney NSW 2000 ivegroup.com.au Authorised by the IVE Board Contact: Richard Nelson Investor Relations richard.nelson@ivegroup.com.au +61 2 8064 5425
