- Profit/Loss on disposals and other non-operating items
- Restructuring, litigation, implementation and other non recurring costs
Profit/Loss on disposals and non-operating items comprise capital gains or losses on the sale of Group companies and of property, plant and equipment and other non-operating items that are not directly related to the Group’s normal operating activities such as revaluation gains or losses on previously held equity interests, disputes with non-controlling interests.
Like-for-like information is information factoring out changes in the scope of consolidation (such as divestments and acquisitions occurring in 2018 and 2017) and currency translation effects (2018 figures are converted with 2017 exchange rates in order to calculate the currency effects).
Restructuring, litigation, implementation and other non-recurring costs comprise significant items that, because of their exceptional nature, cannot be viewed as inherent to the Group’s ongoing performance, such as strategic restructuring, major items relating to antitrust fines and other business related litigation cases. In the comparative periods, they also included costs directly related to the merger such as legal, banking fees and advisory costs, employee costs related to redundancy plans and IT implementation costs.
