Significant accounting policies

There were no significant changes in accounting policies applied by us in these condensed consolidated interim financial statements compared to those used in the most recent annual financial statements of 2016, except for the adoption of new standards and interpretations described below.

New standards and interpretations applicable for the annual period beginning on 1 January 2017

  • Amendments to IAS 12 – Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets for Unrealized Losses
  • Amendments to IAS 7 – Disclosure Initiative
  • Annual Improvements to IFRS Standards 2014-2016 Cycle – Amendments to IFRS 12

The nature and the effect of these changes were taken into consideration, but the above amendments did not affect the interim condensed consolidated financial statements. We have not early adopted any other standard, interpretation, or amendment that has been issued but is not yet effective.

The assessment of the impact of IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (applicable for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018) is still ongoing as the company assesses all contracts, performance obligations and allocation of revenues. We plan to adopt IFRS 15 on its effective date.

We are currently evaluating the guidance to determine the impact of IFRS 16 Leases (applicable for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019). We plan to adopt IFRS 16 on its effective date.


The impact of seasonality or cyclicality on our operations is not regarded as applicable to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements.
