Consolidation rules

The Consolidated Financial Statements comprise the separate financial statements of the Parent Company and its controlled entities (subsidiaries) for the financial year ended on 31 December 2017 and 31 December 2016. Control means a case when the Group has the ability to manage the financial and operational policy of the entity to draw economic benefits from its operations. The financial statements of the subsidiaries, after taking into consideration adjustments introduced to make them compliant with EU IFRS, are prepared for the same reporting period as the statements of the Parent Company, based on uniform accounting principles applied for transactions and similar economic events.

Revenues and costs of subsidiaries acquired or sold during the year are taken into account in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income as of the actual date of acquisition of the given entity to the date of its effective disposal. Comprehensive income of the subsidiaries are attributed to owners of the Parent Company and to non-controlling interests even if such attribution results in a negative balance of the non-controlling interests. All transactions effected within the Group, negative balances and revenues and costs of operations effected between the Group companies have been fully excluded from the consolidation.

The Parent Company settles business combinations using the acquisition method.

Transactions in foreign currencies are converted into the functional currency at the exchange rate at the date of the transaction or valuation upon their initial revaluation. As at the balance sheet date, cash assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are restated according to the average NBP exchange rate binding on that date. Foreign exchange gains and losses obtained as a result of settlements of those transactions and balance sheet valuation of assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recorded in the result, provided they are not deferred in other comprehensive income when they are eligible for recognition as security for cash flows. Non-cash items carried at historical cost expressed in a foreign currency are converted using the exchange rate on the transaction date.

The financial data of foreign entities for the purpose of consolidation have been converted into the Polish currency in the following manner:

  1. assets and liabilities items at the exchange rate at the end of the reporting period,
  2. statement of comprehensive income items and cash flow statement items at the average exchange rate in the reporting period calculated as the arithmetic mean of the exchange rates as at the last day of each month in a given period.

FX differences resulting from the above translation are presented in the equity as FX differences resulting from translation of financial statements of foreign entities.

As at 31 December 2017 and 31 December 2016, for the needs of valuation of financial statements of foreign entities included in consolidation, the Group adopted the following exchange rates:
