1 The term “normalised” refers to performance measures (EBIT, Net Profit, EPS) before non-recurring items. Nonrecurring items are either income or expenses which do not occur regularly as part of the normal activities of the company. They are presented separately because they are important for the understanding of the underlying sustainable performance of the company due to their size or nature. We refer to page 9, point 7 for a detailed reconciliation of the non-recurring items.
