Definitions

Hemsö presents some financial measures in interim and annual reports that are not defined under IFRS. The company believes that these measures provide valuable supplemental information to investors and the company’s management since they enable evaluation of the company’s earnings and financial position. Since financial measures are calculated differently by different companies, they are not always comparable with the measures used by other companies.
