In the interim report, Novedo presents key performance measures that complement the financial measures defined in accordance with IFRS, so-called alternative performance measures, APM. The Company believes that these KPIs provide valuable information to stakeholders as they enable evaluation of the Company’s performance, trends, ability to repay debt, invest in new business opportunities and refect the Group’s business model.
Since not all companies calculate financial ratios in the same way, these are not always comparable. They should therefore not be seen as a substitute for key performance measures defined in accordance with IFRS. Definitions are presented below, most of which are alternative performance measures.
