Use of non-IFRS financial measures

We believe that the presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures provides valuable information about our operating results and enhances the overall understanding of our past and future financial performance, allowing for greater transparency by management on key financial and operational measures. Decision making. These non-IFRS financial measures are additional in nature and should not be considered separately, or as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, as they include some that are not included and/or are not included and/or are included in the more direct IFRS financial measures. In addition, other companies calculate these non-IFRS financial measures differently than we do, which may limit the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

Management provides important information to investors and others such as (a) adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating profit margin, management regularly evaluates these measures as important indicators of our operating performance and makes decisions based on them, (b) CER revenue provides important information to investors and others Management periodically This measure is used to identify business performance from period to year and to make decisions based on it, and (c) adjusted sales, general and administrative expenses and are adjusted. Research and development expenses provide valuable information to investors and others, management evaluates these measures periodically or year-over-year to determine the performance of the business and make decisions based on this, and (d) provides useful free cash flow.

  • Adjusted operating profit Profit for the period/year before accounting for finance income, finance costs, taxes, special items, share-based payments and acquisition intangibles. Special items include certain cash and non-cash items that we believe do not reflect our normal business operations. And we determine that items are unique by distinguishing them by their characteristics and their chance or importance (“Special Items”). As a result, the composition of special items may vary from season to year.
  • Adjusted operating profit margin Adjusted operating profit as a percentage of revenue.
  • CR Our overall revenue growth from one fiscal year/year to the next is growing at constant exchange rates.

Management has not been able to provide adjusted net profit, adjusted net profit margin and CER revenue with their respective direct equivalents of IFRS financials operating profit, operating profit and reported revenue on a forward-looking basis.
