Investors should consider their own individual investment and financial circumstances in relation to any investment decision.

Certain statements contained in this presentation may constitute forward-looking statements or statements about future matters that are based upon information known and assumptions made as of the date of this presentation.

useThese statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from any future results or performance expressed, predicted or implied by the statements contained in this presentation.

The Select Harvests Limited financial statements are prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, other authoritative pronouncements of the Australian Accounting Standards Board, Urgent Issues Group Interpretations and the Corporations Act 2001. This includes application of AASB 141 Agriculture in accounting for the current year almond crop, which is classified as a biological asset. In applying this standard to determine the value of the current year crop, the Company makes various assumptions at the balance date as the selling price of the crop can only be estimated and the actual crop yield will not be known until it is completely processed and sold. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results, and have a risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year.



Almond Industry Carbon Facts from California

Almond trees in California absorb more C02 than they produce during their lifetime.


Total Biomass produced by Almond crop in California per Ha

during the life cycle

= 181MT Kernel + 220 MT Hull & shell + 40-50 MT of woody


= Total 450 MT Organic biomass

= CO2 absorption by the crop during the life cycle 960 MT


CO2 & methane emission

Burning woody biomass

2: March 2021 Report on the 'Economic contribution of the Australian Almond Industry' by RMCG Consulting for Horticulture Innovation Australia

  • Almond trees in California absorb more C02 than they produce during their lifetime1
  • Almonds provide a very high nutritional value, ranking the highest amongst all crops2
  • The direct economic benefits of almond production based on market sales are larger than any other crops2
  • Research is being undertaken in Australia to establish Australian Almond Industry position.
