(1) The consolidated financial statements of the AKASOL Group are prepared in accordance with the applicable accounting standards and audited by independent audit firms. The audit for the 2020 financial statements has not yet been completed. In addition to the mandatory disclosures, AKASOL identifies and publishes further key figures that are not subject to these regulations. This allows for comparisons of performance or operating profitability over time and facilitates management of the Company. For purposes of internal management, and to provide an important indicator of the operating profitability of its business activities, AKASOL uses earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) adjusted for non-operating influences, together with earnings before interest and taxes (adjusted EBIT) adjusted for non-operating influences.
Non-operating effects on earnings comprise individual circumstances that lead to material effects. In terms of the financial year completed, these are particularly, first of all, steps taken in support of growth relative to the establishment of structures in the short term and improvement of processes within the Group. This item also considers special charges in connection with adjustments in stock and material masters processed in connection with the relocation to the new headquarters and the SAP system conversion. ?
