Review and results of operations
Financial overview
The Group generated statutory net profit after tax of $1.8 million for the half year ending 31 December
2012 compared to $1.7 million for the half year ended 31 December 2011. The statutory result was
impacted by $0.5 million of acquisition costs (prior period: nil). Operating profit after tax (before
acquisition costs) was $2.3 million compared to $2.1 million for the previous period (before IPO
costs), representing a 9% increase.

Energy Action Limited ABN 90 137 363 636
FINANCIAL REPORT FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012


Revenue and other income increased by $1.7 million (or 20%), from $8.6 million to $10.3 million,
mainly as a result of higher Activ8 revenue, which increased by $0.8 million, and a $0.8 million
revenue contribution from Ward Consulting Services which was acquired on 1 August 2012.

Whilst AEX revenue was $0.2 million higher than the previous period it was adversely impacted by
shorter electricity contract periods being entered into by Energy Action’s corporate customers. The
contract shortening is due to the fact that energy retailers are generally not pricing contracts beyond
30 J une 2015, as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the carbon tax price beyond that point.

Energy Action is working closely with the energy retailers to implement a solution to create liquidity in
electricity markets post 30 J une 2015.

On 1 August 2012, Energy Action Limited acquired 100% of the voting shares of J asper Australia Pty
Limited, an unlisted company based in Sydney, New South Wales. Trading as Ward Consulting
Services it is a long established, highly successful and profitable business, with a focus on
sustainability and efficiency reporting. It is a highly complementary addition to Energy Action. Please
refer to Note 3 of the financial statements for further detail.

Ward Consulting Services made a strong contribution of $0.8 million to the Group’s first half revenue.

A reconciliation of the Group’s statutory to operating profit is shown in the table below:

$000’s 31 Dec 2012 31 Dec 2011 % variance
Statutory net profit after tax 1,799 1,745 3%
Add back: One off listing costs^ - 364
Add back: Acquisition costs* 491
Operating profit after tax 2,290 2,109 9%

^IPO costs, net of tax.
* Costs relating to the acquisition of Ward Consulting Services.

The adjusted operating profit after tax amount has not been audited, the amount of the ‘add back
items’ have been extracted from the accounts.

Net assets increased from $10.4 million at 30 J une 2012 to $11.6 million at 31 December 2012 mainly
as a result of profit generated offset by the final FY12 dividend paid in September 2012. The Group
had $6.2 million of cash at bank at 31 December 2012 and no bank debt.

The Group has a very solid platform with which to execute on its strategy of undertaking mergers and
acquisitions that meet strategic and financial hurdles.

Strong operating cash flow of $2.4 million was generated during the period, compared to $2.3 million
in the previous period. Operating cash flow included $0.5 million of acquisition costs incurred in
relation to purchase of Ward Consulting Services.

Earnings per share were 7.15 cents for the period compared to 7.69 cents in the previous period. The
current period was impacted by an 11% increase in the weighted average number of shares on issue.
Operating earnings per share were 9.10 cents compared to 9.30 cents in the prior period.

In line with the Group’s policy of paying 50% of net profit after tax as a dividend, an interim fully
franked dividend of 3.55 cents per share will be paid on 14 March 2013.

P a g e | 8
Energy Action Limited ABN 90 137 363 636
FINANCIAL REPORT FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012

Revenue and profit is expected to be weighted to the second half of FY13 as a result of a higher
forward contract book (up 13% from 30 J une 2012 to $74 million at 31 December 2012), a full 6
months contribution from Ward Consulting Services, and strong momentum from Activ8+.

Operating overview

Energy Action’s solid half-year results were driven by a continuing trend among Australian businesses
to outsource their energy procurement and management functions. The positive results were also
achieved in a climate of uncertainty around the permanency of the Federal Government’s carbon tax
legislation.

The company continued to invest in the Australian Energy Exchange, which experienced steady
growth in traffic, with 1,426 auction scenarios run on the Exchange over the past year (compared to
1,223 for the previous corresponding period).

Energy Action has also expanded its geographical footprint through the establishment during the
period of a sales office in Western Australia - a key growth market for the Group.

Future contracted revenue increased 13% from $65 million at 30 J une 2012 to $74 million at 31
December 2012. This significant future revenue stream underpins the Group’s growth and provides
annuity style income.

Energy Action currently has more than 9,000 sites under active or future energy contracts, having
procured over $380 million in energy contracts in the first half of FY13.

The company’s Activ8 suite of services also performed strongly, with over 7,500 sites now under
active or future contracts.

Energy Action launched Activ8+during 2012, which provides a range of energy management,
efficiency and sustainability services. The complexities of the energy market, and greater awareness
of increasing energy costs, have also meant more businesses are looking to reduce their energy
expenses. Issues around sustainability and the carbon tax have led to more inquiry and take up of
Energy Action’s broader energy management and sustainability services, which present opportunities
for new revenue.

The Group has undertaken a significant review of its sale team structure, including role definition and
the commission framework.

Events after the Reporting Period

On 18 February 2013, the directors of Energy Action Limited declared an interim dividend on ordinary
shares in respect of the 6 months to 31 December 2012. The total amount of the dividend is $898,396
which represents a fully franked dividend of 3.55 cents per share. The dividend has not been provided
for in the 31 December 2012 financial statements.
Other than the above there are no other matters or circumstances.

NOTE 4: SEGMENT INFORMATION
Identification of reportable segments


The Group has identified one reportable operating segment, which provide electricity and gas
procurement services, energy monitoring services, and sustainability services in Australia. The types
of services provided are detailed below.

Types of Services

The business’s service range is composed of the three major services: Procurement – via Energy
Action’s Australian Energy Exchange (AEX) and also via tender process through Ward Consulting,
Energy Monitoring via Energy Action’s Activ8 service and also through Ward Consulting’s product
offering, and Sustainability (branded as Activ8+).

The AEX is a specialised electricity procurement service which is an online, real time, reverse
auctions platform.

Activ8 is an independent energy monitoring contract management service which includes energy
consumption monitoring and costing, energy emissions monitoring, contract administration, detailed
technical reporting, desktop energy efficiency review and additional reporting and monitoring.

Activ8+is the energy efficiency and sustainability partnering service, which includes metering
intelligence, sub metering, carbon footprint measurement and reduction advice, Australian Standard
Level 2 compliance energy audits, project feasibility studies and supporting onsite power generation
projects such as co-generation and tri-generation units from prefeasibility through to commissioning.

Ward Consulting Services provides energy procurement and monitoring services to a broad range of
blue-chip clients in the property, food and beverage and finance sectors. Clients include some of
Australia’s leading property owners and commercial property firms. The business has a number of
long term contracts that generate stable and predictable revenue streams.

Whilst the revenue is analysed by service line, overall the performance of the business is monitored
as one.

Accounting Policies and inter-segment transaction

The accounting policies used by the Group in the reporting segment internally are the same as those
contained in note 2 to the accounts.

Revenue by customer

There is no revenue with a single external customer that contributes more than 10%.

NOTE 8: EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic earnings per share amounts are calculated by dividing net profit for the year attributable to
ordinary equity holders of the parent by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding
during the year.

Diluted earnings per share amounts are calculated by dividing the net profit attributable to ordinary
equity holders of the parent (after adjusting for interest on the convertible preference shares) by the
weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year plus the weighted average
number of ordinary shares that would be issued on conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares
into ordinary shares.

The following reflects the income and share data used in the basic diluted earnings per share

Professional Standards Legislation


To the members of Energy Action Limited
Report on the Half-Year Financial Report

Report on the financial report
We have reviewed the accompanying half-year financial report of Energy Action Limited, which comprises
the condensed statement of financial position as at 31 December 2012, the condensed statement of
comprehensive income, condensed statement of changes in equity and condensed statement of cash flows
for the half-year ended on that date, notes comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and
other explanatory information, and the directors’ declaration of the consolidated entity

The consolidated
entity comprises the company and the entities it controlled at the half-year end or from time to time during
the half-year.


Directors’ Responsibility for the Half-Year Financial Report
The directors of the company are responsible for the preparation of the half-year financial report that gives
a true and fair view in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Act 2001.
The directors are also responsible for such internal controls that the directors determine are necessary to
enable the preparation of the half-year financial report that is free from material misstatement, whether
due to fraud or error.
Auditor’s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the half-year financial report based on our review. We
conducted our review in accordance with Auditing Standard on Review Engagements ASRE 2410 Review of
Interim and other Financial Reports Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity, in order to state
whether, on the basis of the procedures described, we have become aware of any matter that makes us
believe that the financial report is not in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001; and complying with
Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the Corporations Regulations 2001. As
the auditor of Energy Action Limited and the entities it controlled during the half-year, ASRE 2410 requires
that we comply with the ethical requirements relevant to the audit of the annual financial report.
A review of a half-year financial report consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for
financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is
substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards and
consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters
that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.
Independence
In conducting our review we have met the independence requirements of the Corporations Act 2001. We
have given to the directors of the company a written Auditor’s Independence Declaration, a copy of which
is included in the directors’ report.










2
Conclusion
Based on our review, which is not an audit, we have not become aware of any matter that makes us believe
that the half-year financial report of Energy Action Limited is not in accordance with the Corporations Act
2001, including:
a. giving a true and fair view of the consolidated entity’s financial position as at 31 December 2012
and of its performance for the half-year ended on that date; and
b. complying with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the Corporations
Regulations 2001.
