2013 figures restated
1 EBIT = earnings before financial result and taxes
2 EBIT before special items and EBITDA before special items are not defined in the International Financial Reporting Standards and should therefore be regarded only as supplementary information. EBITDA before special items is a more suitable indicator of operating performance since it is not affected by depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, impairment loss reversals or special items. By reporting this indicator, the company aims to give readers a clear picture of the results of operations and ensure comparability of data over time. See also Annual Report 2014, Combined Management Report, Chapter 16.2 "Calculation of EBIT(DA) Before Special Items.".
3 EBITDA = EBIT plus amortization and impairment losses on intangible assets, plus depreciation and impairment losses on property, plant and equipment, minus impairment loss reversals. See also Annual Report 2014, Combined Management Report, Chapter 16.2 "Calculation of EBIT(DA) Before Special Items.".
4 The EBITDA margin before special items is calculated by dividing EBITDA before special items by sales.
5 Earnings per share as defined in IAS 33 = net income divided by the average number of shares. For details see Annual Report 2014, Note [16] to the consolidated financial statements..
6 Core earnings per share are not defined in the International Financial Reporting Standards. By reporting this indicator, the company aims to give readers a clear picture of the results of operations and ensure comparability of data over time. The calculation of core earnings per share is explained in the Annual Report 2014, Combined Management Report, Chapter 16.3 "Core Earnings Per Share.".
7 Gross cash flow = income after income taxes, plus income taxes, plus financial result, minus income taxes paid or accrued, plus depreciation, amortization and impairment losses, minus impairment loss reversals, plus / minus changes in pension provisions, minus gains / plus losses on retirements of noncurrent assets, minus gains from the remeasurement of already held assets in step acquisitions. The change in pension provisions includes the elimination of non-cash components of EBIT. It also contains benefit payments during the year. For details see Combined Management Report, Chapter 16.5 "Liquidity and Capital Expenditures of the Bayer Group.".
8 Net cash flow = cash flow from operating activities according to IAS 7
9 Full-time equivalents
10 Percentage changes not based on rounded figures
11 LoPC-IR: rate of incidents in which chemicals leak from their primary container, such as pipelines, pumps, tanks or drums, per 200,000 working hours in areas relevant to plant safety
12 Portfolio-adjusted in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol
13 Volatile organic compounds (VOC) excluding methane
14 Ozone-depleting substances (ODS) in CFC-11 equivalents
15 1 petajoule = 1015 joules
16 Energy efficiency: quotient of total energy consumption and manufactured sales volume. For MaterialScience, only manufactured sales volumes that also form the basis for calculating MaterialScience-specific emissions are taken into account.
