Underlying Earnings

Underlying Earnings is net profit attributable to equity shareholders, adjusted for the effect of special items and remeasurements, and any related tax and minority interests. Special items include those items of financial performance which the Group believes should be excluded from underlying financial performance, and principally relate to impairment and significant closure costs, exceptional legal provisions and profit or loss on disposals. Remeasurements include adjustments to ensure that the unrealised gains or losses on non-hedge derivative instruments are recorded in underlying earnings in the same period as the underlying transaction against which these instruments provide an economic, but not formally designated, hedge.
