1 Management of the Group assesses the performance of operating segments based on a measure of adjusted EBITDA, which is derived from the management report.

For this purpose, adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating profit/loss from continuing operations adjusted for other operating income/expenses, depreciation and amortisation, impairment of assets, excess of fair value of net assets acquired over the cost of acquisition, defined benefits scheme expense and provisions (including provision for obsolete inventory, provision for impairment of accounts receivable, unused vacation allowance, warranty provision, provision for legal claims, tax provision and other provisions). This measurement basis, therefore, excludes the effects of a number of non-recurring income and expenses on the results of the operating segments.

2 ROCE is calculated as EBIT LTM divided by (average total debt + average equity), where EBIT is derived as (Gross profit – SG&A expenses – Other operating expenses (net)).
