On 1 April 2018 Peaches sold maturing inventory that cost €3.5m to a finance company, XZK, for €6m. The estimated market value of the inventory is in excess of €6m.

The sale contract includes a clause allowing Peaches to repurchase the inventory at any time up to 31 March 2021 at a price of €6m plus interest at 8% per annum compounded from 1 April 2017. The inventory will include storage costs until maturity. The cost of storage for the current year of €450,000 has been included in the trade receivables (in the name of the finance company XZK). If Peaches chooses not to repurchase the inventory XZK will pay the accumulated storage costs on 31 March 2021. The proceeds of sale have been debited to the bank and the sale has been included in Peaches sales revenue.
