The fair value of these shares is the published price of the shares of the Group at the date of acquisition, which was $5.18 each. In addition, the Group issued, as contingent consideration, 34,020,000 ordinary shares which were subject to the terms of a restriction deed. The restriction deed removes their entitlements to vote, receive dividends as declared or participate in the proceeds from the sale of all surplus assets until such time as certain milestones are met. The restrictions will cease to apply upon the occurrence of certain trigger events including the grant of mining leases and environmental approvals at the Boardwalk projects. At the acquisition date the fair value of the contingent consideration was deemed to be $50,595,000, which was based on an assessment of the probability and timing of achieving the milestones required to release the restrictions over the contingent consideration. 2 The Group issued 388,901,169 ordinary shares as consideration for the 100% interest in Aston Resources Limited. The fair value of these shares is the published price of the shares of the Group at the date of acquisition, which was $5.18 each.
