The interim report has been prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the EU, with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting being applied. Apart from in the financial statements and their accompanying notes, disclosures in accordance with IAS 34.16A also appear in other parts of the interim report. The interim report for the Parent Company has been prepared in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act and the Securities Market Act, which is in accordance with the provisions of RFR 2 Accounting for Legal Entities.
In the interim report, the same accounting principles and bases of calculation have been applied as in the most recent annual report. There are no new IFRS or IFRIC pronouncements endorsed by the EU that are applicable for Addtech or that have a significant impact on the Group’s result of operations and position in 2022/2023.
Alternative performance measures
The Company presents certain financial measures in the interim report that are not defined according to IFRS. The Company believes that these measures provide valuable supplemental information to investors and the Company's management as they allow for evaluation of trends and the Company's performance. Since all companies do not calculate financial measures in the same way, they are not always comparable to measures used by other companies. These financial measures should therefore not be considered to be a replacement for measurements as defined under IFRS. For definitions and reconciliation tables of the performance measures that Addtech uses, please see page 17-20.
Risks and factors of uncertainty
Addtech's profit and financial position, as well as its strategic position, are affected by a number of internal factors under Addtech's control and by a number of external factors over which Addtech has limited influence. The most important risk factors for Addtech are the state of the economy, combined with structural change and the competitive situation.
Addtech has limited direct exposure to the countries involved in the conflict in Ukraine. One of our subsidiaries has a minor business in Russia where work is currently underway according to an orderly decommissioning plan. Addtech assess also the indirect effects as limited for the time being. Addtech is closely monitoring developments in the conflict and currently finds it difficult to assess the future effect of sanctions against Russia and the implications that the conflict could have on the economic situation in Europe.
Please see section Risks and uncertainties (page 56-58) in the annual report for 2021/2022 for further details.
The Parent Company is indirectly affected by the above risks and uncertainty factors due to its role in the organisation.
