Definitions and reconciliation of non-IFRS measures with IFRS measures

Pernod Ricard’s management process is based on the following non-IFRS measures which are chosen for planning and reporting. The Group’s management believes that these measures provide valuable additional information to users of the financial statements in understanding the Group’s performance. These non-IFRS measures should be considered supplemental to comparable IFRS measures and the reported movements therein.

Organic growth

Organic growth is calculated after excluding the effects of exchange rate fluctuations, acquisitions and disposals and changes in applicable accounting principles.

The impact of exchange rates is calculated by converting the results of the current year at the exchange rates of the previous year.

For acquisitions in the current year, post-acquisition results are excluded from organic movement calculations. For prior year acquisitions, post-acquisition results are included in the prior year, but are included in the organic movement calculation from the anniversary of the current year’s acquisition date.

When a business, a brand, a brand distribution right or an agency agreement has been transferred or terminated during the previous year, the Group, in the organic movement calculations, excludes the results of this business from the previous year. For disposals or terminations of the current year, the Group excludes the results of this activity of the previous year from the date of disposal or termination.

This measurement makes it possible to focus on the performance of the company which is common to the two years and which represents the measurements on which the local managers are most directly able to influence.

Income from recurring operations

Current operating income corresponds to operating income excluding other non-current operating income and expenses.
