The interim report has been prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the EU, with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting being applied. Apart from in the financial statements and their accompanying notes, disclosures in accordance with IAS 34.16A also appear in other parts of the interim report. The interim report for the Parent Company has been prepared in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act and the Securities Market Act, which is in accordance with the provisions of RFR 2 Accounting for Legal Entities.
In the interim report, the same accounting principles and bases of calculation have been applied as in the most recent annual report. There are no new IFRS or IFRIC pronouncements endorsed by the EU that are applicable for Addtech or that have a significant impact on the Group’s result of operations and position in 2023/2024.
Alternative performance measures
The Company presents certain financial measures in the interim report that are not defined according to IFRS. The Company believes that these measures provide valuable supplemental information to investors and the Company's management as they allow for evaluation of trends and the Company's performance. Since all companies do not calculate financial measures in the same way, they are not always comparable to measures used by other companies. These financial measures should therefore not be considered to be a replacement for measurements as defined under IFRS. For definitions and reconciliation tables of the performance measures that Addtech uses, please see page 18-21.
Risks and factors of uncertainty
Addtech's profit and financial position, as well as its strategic position, are affected by a number of internal factors under Addtech's control and by a number of external factors over which Addtech has limited influence. The risk factors of greatest significance to Addtech are the economic situation, or other events affecting the economy, such as the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, as well as geopolitical conflicts, such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, in combination with structural changes and the competitive situation.
Please see section Risks and uncertainties (page 59-61) in the annual report for 2022/2023 for further details.
The Parent Company is indirectly affected by the above risks and uncertainty factors due to its role in the organisation.
Transactions with related parties
No transactions between Addtech and related parties that have significantly affected the Group's or the parent company's position and its earnings have taken place during the period.
Addtech's sales of high-tech products and solutions in the manufacturing industry and infrastructure are not subject to major seasonal variations. The number of production days and customers' demand and willingness to invest can vary over the quarters.
Events after the end of the period
On 20 October, an agreement was signed to acquire 89 percent of the shares in Control Cutter AS, Norway, to become part of the Industrial Solutions business area. Control Cutter provides leading technical solutions to the global offshore market for the decommissioning of oil and gas wells. Through its patented solutions the company offers efficient, safe and reliable conductor recovery and subsea cutting. The company has 18 employees and sales of around NOK 160 million. The closing is estimated to take effect in the end of October 2023.
A preliminary purchase price allocation has not yet been completed.
The Board of Directors and the President deem that the interim report on the first six months gives a true and fair picture of the Company's and the Group's operations, position and earnings, and describes the significant risks and uncertainty factors to which the Company and the Group are exposed.
