FOOTNOTES

  1. Alternative Performance Measures: refer to Note 3 to the Group financial statements on pages 118 to 120.

  2. Certain comparatives have been restated due to a required change in accounting policy which has resulted in costs previously capitalised now presented as a non-underlying expense within net operating profit, as explained in Note 1 to the Group financial statements on page 109.

  3. IFRS 16 Leases was adopted on 1 April 2019 using the modified retrospective approach without restating prior year figures.
