This financial statements bulletin is prepared in accordance with IAS 34 (Interim Financial Reporting) using the same accounting policies and methods of computation as in the annual financial statements for 2011. All figures in the accounts have been rounded and consequently the sum of individual figures can deviate from the presented sum figure.
Use of estimates
The preparation of the financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the valuation of the reported assets and liabilities and other information, such as contingent liabilities and the recognition of income and expenses in the income statement. Although the estimates are based on the management's best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results may differ from the estimates.
Of the amended International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and interpretations mandatory as of 1 January 2012 the following are applicable on the Group reporting:
- Amendment to IFRS 7 Financial Instruments : Disclosures
The adaption of the revised standards and interpretations does not have any material effect on the interim report.
The annual figures in this financial statements bulletin are audited.
