Scout24 also uses alternative performance measures, not defined by IFRS, to explain its earnings indicators. These should not be viewed in isolation, but treated as supplementary information. The special items used to calculate some alternative performance measures arise from the integration of acquired businesses, restructuring measures, impairments, gains or losses resulting from divestitures and sales of shareholdings, as well as other expenses and income that generally do not arise in conjunction with Scout24’s ordinary business activities. Alternative performance measures used by Scout24 are defined in the "Glossary" section of Scout24's Annual Report 2016 which is publicly available at www.scout24.com/financial-reports.
Due to rounding, it is possible that the totals of the individual items published in this report may differ from the totals quoted and, for that reason, percentages may not reflect the exact development of the absolute numbers.
