Performance Measures

Alternative Performance Measures (APM)

Interroll uses key indicators defined in the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) throughout its entire financial reporting, as well as selected Alternative Performance Measures (APMs). These alternative measures provide useful information on the Group's financial situation and are used for financial management and control purposes.
As these measures are not defined under IFRS, the calculation may differ from the published APMs of other companies. For this reason, comparability across companies may be limited.

The key alternative performance measures used at Interroll for financial reporting are defined as follows:
