Alternative Performance Measures (APMs)

In this Common Practices report we look at what APMs are; how companies are using them; and what they mean for the users of accounts when comparing them to others. This report examines the APMs that are stated within recent company and group accounts for a sample of 20 companies. Our selected sample covers year ends from 30 June 2017 to 31 March 2018. All companies report under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted in the EU. Throughout this report, we look at some of the recommendations put forward by the European Securities and Markets Agency (ESMA) in their guidelines setting out best practice on APMs in 2015, which became effective from 3 July 2016, as well as the observations made by the FRC, assessing whether and how companies have implemented them.
