Non-consolidation of joint venture investment conflicts with IFRS
French defence and security company Thales recognises €24.5 million investment in a joint venture as an available-for-sale financial asset in a presentation that is misleading and falls short of IFRS.

Flattering change of presentation draws auditors' attention
French defence and security company Thales changes to include restructuring costs above income from operations, turning a 4% increase in the figure over two years into a 34% increase and drawing comment from its auditors.
