Notes to the company financial statements

General accounting principles for preparing the financial statements

The consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with Title 9, Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code. The assets and liabilities have been valued and the result determined on the basis of historical cost. Assets and liabilities have been valued using the cost price model unless a different accounting principle is specified for the specific item in the balance sheet.

Income and expenditure are allocated to the financial year to which they are related. Only profits realised at the balance sheet date have been included. Obligations and potential losses arising before the end of the reporting period have been taken into account if they were known before the financial statements were compiled.
