The Company’s investment portfolio is managed by Investors Mutual Limited (IML). Investment Objective The Company’s primary objective is to deliver long-term value to shareholders through a combination of capital growth and income by investing in a diversified portfolio of quality ASX-listed entities outside the S&P/ASX20 Index. The Company aims to achieve after-fee returns over a five-year-plus investment period higher than the S&P/ASX300 Accumulation Index, excluding that part of the return generated by S&P/ASX20 Accumulation Index securities. Foundation of the Company's Investment Strategy The Australian sharemarket is heavily concentrated in larger entities both in terms of market capitalisation and industry sector weighting in the broader market’s main index. The S&P/ASX20 Index – representing the 20 largest entities by market capitalisation on the ASX – accounts for 54% of the S&P/ASX300 Index by market capitalisation and had a 34% concentration in the Financial and Resource sectors at 30 June 2021. Investment Strategy The Company’s investment strategy is to create a diversified and balanced portfolio of ASX-listed securities outside the S&P/ASX20 Index, aiming to capitalise on IML’s disciplined investment approach and intensive research process. When assessing investment opportunities, IML’s team of highly-experienced analysts undertakes a comprehensive ‘bottom-up’ approach to identifying, researching and valuing companies. IML’s approach to identifying opportunities for the portfolio is systematic and disciplined, and focuses on finding those entities that meet IML’s investment criteria, and then determining an appropriate valuation for those entities. This is the same approach that IML has applied successfully for over 23 years. In addition to long-term capital growth, IML is focused on long-term income growth for the portfolio, seeking investment opportunities that pay sustainable and growing dividends with attractive franking credits, with the portfolio being diversified across both industries and individual securities. QV Equities Limited Chairman’s Letter For the year ended 30 June 2021 3 A letter from the Chairman, Peter McKillop Dear Shareholders, Financial year 2021 was a strong one for investors, with many sharemarkets around the world reaching record highs. Investor confidence was supported by the reopening of many economies as COVID-19 vaccines were made widely available in most developed economies. The Australian sharemarket, as measured by the S&P/ASX300 Index, was no exception, delivering its best financial year return in over three decades. In Australia, the emergency fiscal stimulus introduced by the Federal Government in response to the first COVID-19 lockdowns was extended through to March 2021 and the Reserve Bank of Australia cut the cash rate to 0.1% and introduced its own asset purchasing program. The Company’s portfolio return to shareholders for the year ended 30 June 2021 was 23.4% compared to the portfolio’s benchmark (ASX300 ex-20 Accumulation Index) return of 24.9%. This was a strong result for the portfolio, although relative performance was affected by the Manager’s caution towards highly-valued and cyclical sectors such as Technology and Resources. The Manager considers many companies in these sectors to have higher risks in the current environment. Financial Results The Company earned a net after-tax profit of $5.6 million for the year ended 30 June 2021, down 46.2% from the prior financial year. On an earnings per share basis, the FY2021 result equates to after-tax earnings of 2.26 cents per share. This reduction in profit was due primarily to the impact COVID-19 and the associated lockdowns had on a number of the companies in the portfolio, as many of these companies reduced their dividends. Dividends In an environment where interest rates are at record lows and where many investors are in need of regular income the Board adopted a policy, in October 2020, of paying dividends on a quarterly basis. A final fully-franked dividend for the 2021 financial year of 1.1 cents per share will be paid on 3 September 2021 (the ex-dividend date for the final dividend will be 16 August 2021). In addition, fully-franked interim dividends of 1.1 cents per share were paid for the September 2020, December 2020 and March 2021 quarters. This takes total dividends per share to 4.4 cents for financial year 2021, in line with the prior year. On Market Buyback The Board and IML are focused on building long-term value and income for shareholders and addressing the issue of the Company’s shares trading at a discount to net tangible assets (NTA). An on-market share buyback has been in place since September 2019 and during the year was extended to September 2022. Apart from supporting the Company’s share price, the main advantage of the buyback is that the shares are being purchased at a discount to NTA and cancelled, thereby increasing the NTA per share for remaining shareholders. Since the buyback commenced, the Company has purchased 36.3 million shares at a cost of $31.9 million to 17 August 2021. Annual General Meeting Shareholders are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday 27 October 2021 at 4.00pm (AEDT). Following the AGM, Investors Mutual will provide an update for shareholders on the Company’s portfolio. It is intended that the AGM will be conducted in-person in Sydney, subject to government advice regarding corporate events. Shareholders will receive further information about the AGM in September. QV Equities Limited Chairman’s Letter For the year ended 30 June 2021 4 Shareholder Communication I trust you continue to find our regular communication informative and engaging. This information is delivered through a variety of formats: • Weekly Net Tangible Assets (NTA) reports • Monthly investment commentary • Regular investment videos • Portfolio Updates and Investment Insights from the Manager • Annual shareholder briefings in major cities • Regular webinars I encourage you to subscribe to receive these updates and invitations through the Company’s website www.qvequities.com . Your Board continues to believe that a carefully selected holding of ex-20 stocks, managed by Investors Mutual Limited, will provide you with reliable income and long-term capital growth. The Manager remains disciplined and true to label, and as always seeks to invest in good quality companies, underpinned by reasonable valuations, with upside potential, sustainable earnings from a diverse range of sectors, and paying consistent levels of franked dividends. I look forward to discussing the results presented in this Annual Report further at the Annual General Meeting on 27 October. Thank you for your continuing support of QVE. Yours sincerely Peter McKillop, Chairman 18 August 2021 QV Equities Limited Investment Manager’s Report For the year ended 30 June 2021 5 Investment Manager’s Report Investors Mutual Limited (‘IML’) is pleased to deliver its investment report for QV Equities Limited (‘QVE’) for the financial year ended 30 June 2021. Over the course of financial year 2021, global sharemarkets experienced one of the best 12-month periods on record to close at or near record highs. From COVID-19-induced lows in March 2020, unprecedented government and central bank stimulus together with ongoing record low interest rates and investor exuberance served to support economic growth and sharemarkets, with many companies’ share prices recovering strongly over FY2021. In such a setting, we remained disciplined and prudent in managing the QVE portfolio of stocks outside the ASX top 20. IML maintains strict adherence to the investment mantra which has defined its approach to investing through all market cycles for the past 23 years. IML looks to invest in well-established companies which possess the following clear quality characteristics: • a competitive advantage over their peers; • a recurring earnings stream; • a capable management team; • the ability to grow earnings and dividends over time; and • an attractive entry price. The Company’s portfolio at 30 June 2021 was made up of 49 listed securities spread across various ASX sectors. The Company’s top holdings included well-known companies such as Amcor and Tabcorp as well as other good quality companies such as Sonic Healthcare, Pact Group and AusNet.

Portfolio Performance The QVE portfolio returned 23.4% before tax and after fees for the 12 months to 30 June 2021, compared to the benchmark ASX300 ex-20 Index’s return of 24.9%. This was a strong result for the QVE portfolio, particularly given that the benchmark’s return was driven primarily by rallies in the more speculative or cyclical sectors such as Technology and Resources. Many companies in these sectors have highly volatile earnings and business models which are unproven and we remain comfortable with the portfolio’s lower weighting to these sectors. The portfolio benefited over the year from its exposure to holdings such as Virgin UK , Pact Group , Tabcorp, Hipages and Home Consortium , which all performed strongly. The share prices of media companies Nine Entertainment and oOh!media also improved as advertising spend recovered from the falls seen around the COVID-19 lockdowns. There were a few disappointing performers over the year including Ampol , Orica and Aurizon . These companies’ earnings were affected by the impact of COVID-19 on underlying volumes and demand. However, we believe the potential remains for each of these companies to generate good cashflows and returns as conditions continue to normalise in future. Tabcorp was a good performer in FY2021, gaining +58% over the year. Tabcorp is the leading wagering and lotteries operator in the country, with a well-established ‘brick and mortar’ offering complemented by a strongly growing digital offering. In the early stages of COVID-19 lockdowns, Tabcorp’s shares were sold off as the company faced forced closure of its retail betting shops and gaming services operations. As a result, concerns around the risk of a breach of debt covenants saw Tabcorp improve its balance sheet with a capital QV Equities Limited Investment Manager’s Report For the year ended 30 June 2021 7 raising. At the same time, trading in the digital parts of the business, particularly lotteries, remained very strong. In the second half of FY2021, several strategic bidders expressed interest in acquiring the company’s wagering business, which drove a strong share price recovery. The company has subsequently announced a demerger of its lotteries and Keno business which should unlock significant value for shareholders. Home Consortium , a developer and manager of hyper-convenience retail and service centres, performed strongly for QVE, up +130% in FY2021. Underlying earnings remained resilient through the peak of COVID-19, highlighting the asset and tenant quality of the company’s portfolio of assets, which are focused on daily needs, leisure and lifestyle and healthcare. Future earnings and asset valuations were also augmented by multiple, accretive acquisitions over the period. Highlighting management strength and the deep relationships they have in the market, many of these transactions were executed off-market and for lower prices than comparable on- market transactions. During FY2021, the company commenced its path toward an asset-light management model with the successful listing of the HomeCo Daily Needs REIT in November 2020. Another very strong performer for QVE was Virgin Money UK , which moved +120% higher over FY2021. Virgin Money UK is a UK-based bank providing services under the Clydesdale Bank, Yorkshire Bank and Virgin Money brands. In line with the UK banking sector, Virgin Money UK shares fell on fears of the potentially negative effects COVID-19 was estimated to have on the UK economy. Since then, government support measures, a relatively successful vaccination program and an improvement in UK macro conditions have led to a broad re- rating of the UK banking sector. Virgin Money UK has benefited from this, with the valuation gap to domestic UK peers also closing to better reflect Virgin Money UK’s relatively high-quality lending book, higher provisioning relative to other UK banks, greater scope for self-help initiatives and excess capital position. Regarding Ampol, Orica and Aurizon , we continue to follow these companies closely. While their share price performances and contributions to the QVE portfolio to date have been below expectations, we continue to hold these companies. We are of the view that their share prices will recover over the medium term as the impact of factors such as COVID-19 on volume demand and prices abate and these companies’ earnings recover. We believe that these companies’ share prices currently significantly underestimate the improvement that we will see in the medium to longer term. An increasing theme over the second half of the financial year was an upsurge in corporate activity, with a number of ASX-listed companies receiving takeover approaches. This has occurred because record low interest rates has made borrowing costs for companies very attractive, as well as increased confidence in the outlook for Australia’s economy, combined with the low valuations of certain ASX-listed companies. Accordingly, it was not surprising to IML that QVE’s holdings in Australian Pharmaceutical Industries, Crown Resorts and Spark Infrastructure all received takeover approaches in recent months. Over IML’s history we have often held companies which have received takeover bids and we see it as an important part of our role to extract full value in these situations. This occurs when we identify an opportunity or see value where the market does not. All of these companies own strategic assets, the full values of which were not reflected in the share prices, creating the opportunity for a corporate to seek to acquire these companies. Many other companies in the QVE portfolio could similarly be recipients of takeover approaches as many of these companies are significantly undervalued. Mayne Pharma, Z Energy, Southern Cross Media and A2B have been long-term holdings of QVE which have been affected by COVID-19 and whose long-term potential is not being reflected in these companies’ current share prices. We believe the market is not reflecting the improved outlook for these companies and the changes that have occurred in the nature of their operations. For example, Mayne Pharma has recently launched its ground-breaking oral contraceptive product Nextstellis in the USA, the first entirely new such product in this segment in over 20 years. The substantial earnings potential for this product is not reflected in the current share price, with Metrics, the company’s Contract Drug Development and Manufacturing division, continuing to do well, and the company transitioning away from its traditional generics operation. A2B is a business which saw its operations heavily affected by the lockdowns, with the company’s taxi operations operating at significantly reduced levels. However, the current market valuation of A2B is mostly QV Equities Limited Investment Manager’s Report For the year ended 30 June 2021 8 supported by the property held on its balance sheet, meaning there is very limited value attributed in the current share price for the company’s substantial taxi operations (which generated $36 million EBITDA in FY19) and A2B’s suite of technology products, which have been very successful in allowing the taxi industry locally to compete effectively with ride-share providers. Outlook Sharemarkets around the world, including Australia’s, remain well-supported as economic growth continues to rebound from COVID lows and central banks continue to hold interest rates at record low levels. The Australian sharemarket is now trading at record levels and as such we continue to steer away from some of the riskier parts of the sharemarket and remain focused on good quality companies which are well-managed, where valuations remain reasonable and which we firmly believe can do well over the next 3 - 5 years. We remain focused on investing in reasonably valued companies which can grow their long-term earnings through their own initiatives rather than relying on strong economic growth. These initiatives include companies capable of making accretive bolt-on acquisitions, such as Sonic Healthcare ; companies growing market share, such as Integral Diagnostics ; companies restructuring their businesses, such as Ampol ; companies that are on track for revenue growth, such as AusNet ; or companies that are actively taking substantial costs out of their operations, such as Pro-Pac Packaging . Although market conditions in recent years have not favoured IML’s rational, value style, our focus on the fundamental value and quality of companies in this way has enabled us to deliver reliable income and long- term capital growth to our investors over IML’s 23 years of existence, while achieving returns which are more consistent and less volatile than the overall sharemarket. It remains a privilege, that we do not take for granted, to apply IML’s quality and value investment philosophy and approach to investing to the QVE portfolio for another year. We believe that a good quality portfolio of well-established companies in the ex-20 sector of the market will yield regular income and solid returns in the future as well as offering investors the opportunity to diversify their exposure away from the ASX top 20 stocks. We hope to meet as many of you as possible at our Annual General Meeting in October, health conditions and government regulations permitting. Thank you for your continued support.

QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 26 1 General information QV Equities Limited ("the Company") is a listed investment company domiciled in Australia. The Company was established with the primary objective of providing long term capital growth and income, through a diversified portfolio of the ASX listed entities outside of the S&P/ASX 20 Index. The portfolio is managed by Investors Mutual Limited. The Company was registered with the Australian Securities Commission (ASIC) on 17 April 2014 and commenced operations on 22 August 2014. The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board on 18 August 2021. 2 Summary of significant accounting policies The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below. The annual financial statements are for the entity QV Equities Limited. ( a) Basis of preparation These general purpose annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2021 have been prepared in accordance with the Australian Accounting Standards and interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board and the Corporations Act 2001 . The Company is a for-profit entity for financial reporting purposes under the Australian Accounting Standards. ( i) Compliance with IFRS The financial statements of the Company also comply with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). ( ii) New accounting standards and Interpretations There are no new standards or interpretations applicable that would have a material impact for the Company. ( iii) Standards issued but not yet effective There are no other standards that have been issued but not yet effective and that would be expected to have a material impact on the entity in the current or future reporting periods and on foreseeable future transactions. ( b) Investments (i) Recognition and initial measurement Long term equity investments and investments held for sale are recognised initially at cost. Financial liabilities are recognised initially at cost. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 27 2 Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) ( b) Investments (continued) (ii) Classification and subsequent measurement The Company classifies its investments based on its business model for managing those financial assets and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the investments. For long term equity securities, the cash flows do not represent solely payments of principal and interest and they are not held for trading. Therefore, the Company has made an irrevocable election to present fair value movements on these securities in other comprehensive income which accumulates in the asset revaluation reserve. On derecognition the cumulative gain /loss on these securities are transferred to the capital profits reserve. For floating rate securities, the contractual cash flows are solely payments of principal and interest and the business model objective is achieved by both collecting contractual cash flows and selling these financial assets. Therefore, the Company mandatorily presents these securities in other comprehensive income which accumulates in the asset revaluation reserve. On derecognition the cumulative gain/loss on these securities are recycled to the profit or loss. The Company holds call options which are derivative financial instruments classified as financial liabilities at fair value through profit and loss, changes in the fair value of options are recognised in profit or loss for the year. ( iii) Derecognition Financial assets are derecognised where the contractual rights to receipt of cash flows expires or the asset is transferred to another party whereby the Company no longer has any significant continuing involvement in the risks and benefits associated with the asset. Realised gains or losses on long term equity investments are transferred from the asset revaluation reserve to the capital profits reserve. ( iv) Valuation All investments are classified and measured as being at fair value, please refer to note 4 for more information on the Company’s policy for measuring fair value. ( c) Revenue (i) Interest income Interest income is recognised as it accrues, taking into account the effective yield on the financial asset. ( ii) Dividend income Dividend income is recognised in the profit or loss on the day on which the relevant investment is first quoted on an "ex-dividend" basis. ( d) Expenses All expenses, including management fees, are recognised in the profit and loss on an accruals basis. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 28 2 Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (e) Income tax The income tax expense or benefit for the year is the tax payable on the current year's taxable income based on the applicable income tax rate, adjusted by changes in the deferred tax assets and liabilities attributable to temporary differences, unused tax losses and the adjustment recognised for prior periods, where applicable. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognised for temporary differences at the tax rates expected to apply when the assets are recovered or liabilities are settled, based on those tax rates that are enacted or substantively enacted. Deferred tax assets are recognised for deductible temporary differences and unused tax losses only if it is probable that future taxable amounts will be available to utilise those temporary differences and losses. The carrying amount of recognised and unrecognised deferred tax assets are reviewed each reporting date. Deferred tax assets recognised are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that future taxable profits will be available for the carrying amount to be recovered. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets and liabilities. Current tax assets and tax liabilities are offset where the entity has a legally enforceable right to offset and intends to either to settle on a net basis, or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. (f) Goods and Services Tax (GST) Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of goods and services tax (GST), unless GST incurred is not recoverable from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). In this case it is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or as part of the expense. Receivables and payables are stated inclusive of the amount of GST receivable or payable. The net amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to, the tax authority is included in other receivables or other payables in the Statement of Financial Position. Cash flows are presented on a gross basis. The GST components of cash flows arising from investing or financing activities which are recoverable from, or payable to the ATO, are presented as operating cash flows. (g) Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents includes cash on hand, deposits held at call with financial institutions, other short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash which are subject to an insignificant risk to changes in value. (h) Receivables Receivables are initially recognised at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost, less expected credit losses. Receivables may include interest, dividends and trust distributions. Interest, dividends and trust distributions are accrued in accordance with the policy note set out in note 2(c). QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 29 2 Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) ( h) Receivables and unsettled sale of Shares (continued) All receivables, unless otherwise stated are non interest bearing, unsecured and generally received in 30 days of being recorded as a receivable. ( i) Trade creditors and other payables These amounts represent liabilities for goods and services provided to the Company prior to the reporting date which was unpaid. These amounts are unsecured and are usually paid within 30 days of recognition. Purchases of securities and investments that are unsettled at the reporting date are included in payables and are normally settled within 2 business days of trade dates. ( j) Share capital Ordinary shares will be classified as equity. Costs directly attributable to the issue of ordinary shares will be recognised as a deduction from equity, net of tax. Shares bought back will be recognised as a reduction to ordinary shares. ( k) Dividends Provision is made for the amount of any dividend declared, being appropriately authorised and no longer at the discretion of the Company, on or before the end of the reporting period but not distributed at the end of the reporting period. It is the Boards' policy that all dividends paid will be franked to the maximum extent possible. ( l) Earnings per share (i) Basic earnings per share Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing: • the profit attributable to owners of the Company, excluding any costs of servicing equity other than ordinary shares. • by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the financial year, adjusted for bonus elements in ordinary shares issued during the year and shares bought back during the year. (ii) Diluted earnings per share Diluted earnings per share adjusts the figures used in the determination of basic earnings per share to take into account: • the after income tax effect of interest and other financing costs associated with dilutive potential ordinary shares; and • the weighted average number of ordinary shares that would have been outstanding assuming the conversion of options. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 30 2 Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (m) Rounding of amounts In accordance with ASIC Corporations (Rounding in Financial/Director's Reports) Instrument 2016/191 , the amounts in the Directors' report and in the financial report have been rounded to the nearest dollar unless otherwise stated. (n) Functional and presentation currency The functional and presentation currency of the Company is Australian dollars. (o) Critical accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the financial statements. Apart from the items mentioned below, there are no key judgements, estimates and assumptions that have a risk of causing material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets and liabilities within the next financial year. Recovery of deferred tax assets Deferred tax assets are recognised for deductible temporary differences only if the Company considers it is probable that future taxable amounts will be available to utilise those temporary differences and losses. 3 Financial risk management The Company's financial instruments consist of deposits with banks, listed and unlisted investments, trade and other receivables and trade and other payables. The main risks the Company is exposed to through its financial instruments are market risk - consisting of interest rate risk and other price risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. Under delegation from the Board, the Manager is responsible for the daily monitoring and risk assessment of the Company's financial market risk. (a) Market risk Market risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. By its nature, as a listed investment company that invests in tradable securities, the Company will always be subject to market risk as it invests its capital in securities which are not risk free as the market price of these securities can fluctuate. The Manager seeks to reduce market risk for the Company by diversification of the investment portfolio across numerous stocks and multiple industry sectors. The Manager reviews the relative weightings of the individual securities and market sectors daily. (i) Price risk The Company is exposed to equities securities price risk. This arises from investments held by the Company and classified in the Statement of Financial Position as long term investments and financial liabilities at fair value. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 31 3 Financial risk management (continued) (a) Market risk (continued) (i) Price risk (continued) The Company seeks to manage and constrain other price risk by diversification of the investment portfolio across multiple stocks and industry sectors. The portfolio is maintained by the Manager within a range of parameters governing the levels of acceptable exposure to stocks and industry sectors. The relative weightings of the individual securities and relevant market sectors are reviewed on a daily basis such that risk can be managed by reducing exposure where necessary. The Company's industry sector weighting of investments including options as at 30 June 2021 and 30 June 2020 is listed below: 2021 2020 % % 4 . 7 2 .3 19. 2 1 9.7 9. 7 9 .3 8. 6 8 .8 13. 4 1 2.2 6.4 4.9 6. 8 1 0.3 7. 0 4.5 9. 1 6 .2 4. 4 2.8 0.0 1.0 89. 3 8 2.0 Industry sector Financials Materials Health Care Utilities Consumer Discretionary Industrials Energy Listed Property Trust s Communication Services Consumer Staple Information Technology Cash 10. 7 18.0 100. 0 100.0 Sensitivity analysis A sensitivity analysis relating to price risk was performed on investments held by the Company at the end of the reporting year. The sensitivity assumes all other variables remain constant. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 32 3 Financial risk management (continued) ( a) Market risk (continued) (i) Price risk (continued) Investments represent 91% (2020: 82%) of gross assets at year end. The following table illustrates the effect on the Company's equity from possible changes in price risk that were reasonably possible based on the risk the Company was exposed to at reporting date, assuming a flat tax rate of 30% (2020: 30%).

The risk is measured using sensitivity analysis. The table below summarises the Company's exposure to interest rate risk. It includes the Company's assets and liabilities at fair value, categorised by the earlier of contractual repricing or maturity dates.

Sensitivity analysis At 30 June 2021, if interest rates had increased/decreased by 75 basis points (2020: 75 basis points) from the year end rates with all other variables held constant, post-tax profit for the year would have been $127,822 (2020: $237,150) higher/$127,822 (2020: $237,150) lower, mainly as a result of higher/lower interest income from interest bearing financial assets . (b) Credit risk Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will cause a financial loss for the other party by failing to discharge an obligation. Market prices generally incorporate credit risk assessments into valuations and risk of loss is implicitly provided for in the carrying value of assets and liabilities as they are marked to market at balance date. The total credit risk for assets is therefore limited to the amount carried in the Statement of Financial Position. The Manager is responsible for ensuring there is appropriate diversification across counterparties and that they are of a sufficient quality rating. The Manager minimises the Company's concentration of credit risk by undertaking transactions in ASX listed securities with a large number of approved brokers. Payment is only made once a broker has received securities and delivery of securities only occurs once the broker received payment. QV Equities Limited Notes to the Financial Statements For the year ended 30 June 2021 (continued) 34 3 Financial risk management (continued) ( b) Credit risk (continued) Cash The majority of the Company's short term deposits are invested with financial institutions that have a Standard and Poor's AA or A1 credit rating. The majority of maturities are within three months. Receivables The majority of the Company's receivables arise from dividends and distributions yet to be received. None of these assets exposed to credit risk are overdue or considered to be impaired. ( c) Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that an entity will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities. The Company's cash receipts depend on the level of dividends and interest received and the exercise of options that may be on issue. The Company's cash payments are the purchase of securities, expenses paid and dividends that are paid to shareholders. Payables are due within less than 6 months. In the case of call options, there are no contractual cash flows as if the option is exercised the contract will be settled in the securities over which the option is written. The Manager monitors the Company's cash flow requirements daily by reference to known purchase and sale of securities, dividends and interest received. Should these decrease by a material amount the Company can alter its cash outflows as appropriate. The Company also holds a portion of its portfolio in cash and term deposits sufficient to ensure that it has cash readily available to meet all payments. Finally, the assets of the Company are largely in the form of tradable securities which can be sold on market if necessary. The Company is not exposed to material liquidity risk. 4 Fair value measurement The Company measures and recognises the following assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis: • Long term investments • Financial liabilities held for trading Fair value hierarchy AASB 13: Fair value measurement requires disclosure of fair value measurements by level of the fair value hierarchy: Level 1 - measurements based on quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2 - measurements based on inputs other than quoted prices included in level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability; and Level 3 - measurements based on unobservable inputs from the asset or liability.

In our opinion, the accompanying financial report of QV Equities Limited is in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 , including: i. giving a true and fair view of the Company’s financial position as at 30 June 2021 and of its financial performance for the year then ended; and ii. complying with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Regulations 2001. Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Report section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the auditor independence requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and the ethical requirements of the Accounting Professional and Ethical Standards Board’s APES 110 Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including Independence Standards) ( “the Code”) that are relevant to our audit of the financial report in Australia. We have also fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the Code. We confirm that the independence declaration required by the Corporations Act 2001 , which has been given to the Directors of the Company, would be on the same terms if given to the Directors as at the time of this auditor’s report. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

An independent New South Wales Partnership. 50 Key Audit Matters Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most significance in our audit of the financial report of the current year. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial report as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Key audit matter How our audit addressed the matter Existence and Valuation of Financial Assets Refer to Note 8: Financial Assets We focused our audit effort on the existence and valuation of the Company’s financial assets as they represent the most significant driver of the Company’s Net Tangible Assets and Profit. The majority of the Company’s investments are considered to be non-complex in nature with fair value based on readily observable data from the ASX or other observable markets. Consequently, these investments are classified under Australian Accounting Standards as “Level 1” (i.e. where the valuation is based on quoted prices in an active market). Our procedures included, amongst others: ? Obtaining an understanding of and evaluating the investment management processes and controls; ? Reviewing and evaluating the independent auditor’s reports on the design and operating effectiveness of internal controls (ASAE 3402 Assurance Reports on Controls at a Service Organisation ) for the Custodians; ? Making enquiries as to whether there have been any changes to these controls or their effectiveness for the period to which the auditor’s report relate to and obtaining bridging letters; ? Obtaining confirmations of the investment holdings directly from the Custodians; ? Assessing and recalculating the Company’s valuation of individual investment holdings using independent pricing sources; ? Evaluating the accounting treatment of revaluations of financial assets for current/deferred tax and unrealised gains or losses; and ? Assessing the adequacy of disclosures in the financial statements.

The other information comprises the information included in the Company’s Annual Report for the year ended 30 June 2021 but does not include the financial report and our auditor’s report thereon. Our opinion on the financial report does not cover the other information and accordingly we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the financial report, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial report or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard. Responsibilities of the Directors for the Financial Report The Directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation of the financial report that gives a true and fair view in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Act 2001 and for such internal controls as the Directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of the financial report that gives a true and fair view and is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial report, the Directors are responsible for assessing the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the Directors either intend to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Report Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial report as a whole is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with the Australian Auditing Standards will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of this financial report. As part of an audit in accordance with the Australian Auditing Standards, we exercise professional judgement and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also: • Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial report, whether du e to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. • Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control. • Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the Directors. Independent Auditor’s Report To the Members of QV Equities Limited ABN 64 169 154 858 Pitcher Partners is an association of independent firms. ABN 17 795 780 962. An independent New South Wales Partnership. 52 Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Report (Continued) • Conclude on the appropriateness of the Directors’ use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the financial report or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern. • Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial report, including the disclosures, and whether the financial report represents the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. We communicate with the Directors regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We also provide the Directors with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, actions taken to eliminate threats or safeguards applied. From the matters communicated with the Directors, we determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial report of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication. Report on the Remuneration Report Opinion on the Remuneration Report We have audited the Remuneration Report included in pages 15 to 18 of the Directors’ Report for the year ended 30 June 2021. In our opinion, the Remuneration Report of QV Equities Limited, for the year ended 30 June 2021, complies with section 300A of the Corporations Act 2001 . Responsibilities The Directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation and presentation of the Remuneration Report in accordance with section 300A of the Corporations Act 2001 . Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Remuneration Report, based on our audit conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards.
