As of 1 January 2018, Wärtsilä has adopted the IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers standard by using the full retrospective method. This Financial Statements Bulletin is published according to the new standard and comparison periods for 2017, including the opening balance sheet, have been restated accordingly. Wärtsilä has also restated the 2017 figures for Marine Solutions and Services, due to an internal transfer of certain service activities. This transfer has no impact on Group totals.
The share issue without payment approved by Wärtsilä’s Annual General Meeting on 8 March 2018 increased the total number of Wärtsilä shares to 591,723,390. The share related figures in the comparison periods have been adjusted to reflect the increased number of shares.
