Revised presentation

Since the beginning of the financial year, derivative financial assets are no longer presented under financial assets but rather under other current assets. Figures for the previous year have been adjusted accordingly.

The IASB and the IFRS IC have issued new and amended rules whose application is not mandatory for the Haniel Group until financial year 2016 or later. For these standards to be applicable, the required endorsement by the Commission of the European Union is still pending in some cases. The relevant Standards and Interpretations are:

The option of early application of standards already issued was not exercised. Currently there are also no plans to apply any of the standards issued by the IASB early. Based on our current estimates, early application of the standards already adopted by the Commission of the European Union would have had no material effects on the presentation of the net assets, financial position, and results of operations in the 2015 financial year. The effects from IFRS 9 on the accounting treatment of financial instruments, from IFRS 15 on revenue recognition, and from IFRS 16 on lease accounting as of the date of their first-time mandatory application are being analysed in Group-wide projects. The overlap between the provisions of the various standards is also being examined in greater detail.
