When a forecast transaction is no longer expected to take place, the accumulated profit or loss recognized in equity is immediately transferred to the “Other operating LQFRPH´LWHPLQWKHLQFRPHVWDWHPHQW Determining fair value The fair value of instruments that do not have listed prices is determined using valuation techniques such as discounted cash flow models, in which all assessed and determined cash flows are discounted using a zero coupon yield curve. The fair value of derivatives is determined using valuation techniques. The valuation is based on models that discount cash flows using forward curves for underlying variables such as raw materials and exchange rates. The assessed and determined cash flows are discounted by a zero coupon interest rate curve. The Group’s credit risk is taken into consideration in the valuation at fair value. Accounts receivables Accounts receivables are recognized initially at fair value and thereafter at amortized cost using the effective interest method, OHVVSURYLVLRQVIRULPSDLUPHQW3URYLVLRQIRULPSDLUPHQWRIDFFRXQWVUHFHLYDEOHVLVUHFRJQLHGZKHQWKHUHLVREMHFWLYHHYLGHQFH that the Group will not receive all the cash flow due according to the original amounts of the receivables.

Transaction expenses that are directly attributable to new share issues or options are recognized, net of tax, in equity as a deduction from the proceeds. Liabilities to banks and credit institutions Borrowings are initially recognized at fair value, net of transaction costs. Borrowings are subsequently stated at amortized cost and any difference between proceeds (net of transaction costs) and redemption value is recognized in the income statement, allocated over the period of the borrowing using the effective interest method. Accounts payables Accounts payables are initially recognized at fair value and subsequently at amortized cost using the effective interest method. Provisions Provisions are recognized in the balance sheet when the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events, and it is more likely than not that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligations and the amount can be estimated reliably. No provisions are made for future operating losses. If the effect of when in time payment is made is significant, provisions are calculated through discounting the expected future cash flow at an interest rate before tax that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and, if applicable, the risks associated with the debt. A provision for restructuring is recognized when the Group has adopted a comprehensive and formal restructuring plan, and the restructuring has either been started or published. Income tax Tax expenses for the period comprise both current tax due and deferred income tax. Tax is recognized in the income statement, apart from when tax is attributable to items recognized in other comprehensive income or directly in equity. In such cases, tax is also recognized in other comprehensive income. Income tax is determined using the tax rules that have been enacted or announced by the balance sheet date and are expected to apply when the related deferred tax asset is realized or the deferred tax liability is settled. Tax expenses stated include both current tax due and deferred income tax. Deferred tax is provided in full, using the liability method, on all temporary differences arising between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the balance sheet. The principal temporary differences arise from depreciation of property, plant and equipment, provisions for pensions and other post-retirement benefits and tax losses carried forward. The tax rates enacted in each country are used in determining deferred income tax. Deferred income tax assets for tax-deductible temporary differences and loss carry-forwards are recognized only to the extent it is likely that it will be possible to utilize these items. The value of deferred tax assets is derecognized when it is no longer deemed likely that they can be utilized. Deferred income tax assets are recognized on temporary differences arising from investments in subsidiaries, except where the timing of the reversal of the temporary differences is controlled by the Group and it is probable that the difference will not be reversed in the foreseeable future. Cash and cash equivalents Cash equivalents comprise balances with less than three months’ maturity, including cash, bank deposits and other current securities. Cash flow statement Payments in and out have been divided up into three categories: operating activities, investing activities and financing activities. The indirect method is used for flows from operating activities. 7KHFKDQJHVGXULQJWKH\HDULQRSHUDWLQJDVVHWVDQGRSHUDWLQJOLDELOLWLHVKDYHEHHQDGMXVWHGIRUWKHHIIHFWVRIFKDQJHVLQ exchange rates.
