From Ratos interim report January-September 2020
Ratos’s consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and associated interpretations (IFRIC), as endorsed by the EU. This interim report was prepared in accordance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, and applicable provisions in the Swedish Annual Accounts Act. The parent company also applies RFR 2 Accounting for Legal Entities. Reporting and measurement principles are unchanged compared with those applied in Ratos’s 2019 Annual Report. The new and revised IFRS standards which came into force in 2020 have not had any material effect on the Ratos Group’s financial statements.
Amounts are presented in SEK million (SEKm) unless otherwise stated. Rounding may apply in tables and calculations, which means that the stipulated total amounts are not always an exact amount of the rounded amounts.
